Applied Humanism

How to Create More Effective and Ethical Businesses

You can’t understand humanistic business management unless you understand what humanism is. This book provides a short introduction to the philosophy of humanism and discusses how and why it is being applied to business and why it is so effective when you do so. Humanism helps us prioritize human value as important. It supports positive interpersonal relationships and collaborative and respectful decision-making. Since all businesses are in the business of solving problems, good problem-solving is essential to good business.

Humanism has already transformed many other disciplines including psychology, medicine, nursing, and more. Additionally, humanism is foundational to the practice of human resources, without which businesses cannot operate. It is important for business managers to understand the philosophy fully so they can understand how to not only manage people more effectively, but how to operate their businesses in a way that helps the communities in which they operate. This book will provide the primer they need to create more effective and ethical businesses.

Leader Evolution

Narrated by: Steve Menasche
Length: 7 hrs and 1 min
Categories: Business & Careers, Management & Leadership

Leader Evolution

From Technical Expertise to Strategic Leadership

Most individuals who move into leadership positions experience the modern-day version of trial by ordeal. It’s sink or swim. To reduce the learning curve and create a more effective process, this book describes a road map for leadership development, a series of four stages that expand personal competence as well as create a broader impact on the organization or business. Each stage requires unique changes in thinking, perspective taking, and behavior, both those needed to acquire as well as those needed to jettison. The book is a pragmatic approach for self-motivated individuals to take control of their professional development by giving them the concepts, tools, techniques, and assignments to develop their leadership effectiveness where it counts the most – on the job.

While highly relevant to new and existing managers, the book is ideally suited for technical professionals and leaders in technical organizations looking to develop critical leadership skills distinct from technical expertise. The concepts and principles are directed toward the individual for on-the-job application; however, this also serves as an organizational and leadership development resource for executive MBA programs, as well as a blueprint for in-house leadership-development programs.

Business Decision Making, Second Edition

Streamlining the Process for More Effective Results

How do executives make decisions? Are their decisions conscious or unconscious? Can they explain each decision they make? What tools can they use to improve their decision-making process? These are some of the questions this book addresses.

During the past 35 years, as an entrepreneur and senior executive of several medium-sized Canadian high-tech businesses, the author noticed that his decision-making processes were often based either on experience or on advice received from colleagues. Seldom were the decisions based on formal or informal academic-based methods.

There is no substitute for years of experience in any human endeavor. However, tapping into some of the methods and lessons learned from personal experience can result in useful principles for others to follow. These principles are very useful, especially for entrepreneurs interested in building their businesses or executives looking for some additional help in acquiring a better decision-making mousetrap.
