Coaching, Mentoring and Managing, Hendricks, William (edited by)
2 Hendricks, William (edited by) Coaching, Mentoring and Managing
Career Press 1996 softcover used 248 pages, 7 inches by 10 inches tall 
from the cover: "The most valuable - and usually most wasted - resources in your company are the people who work for it. To make the most of these resources in today's business environment, you need more than just "management skills." In this decade of downsizings, layoffs, buyouts and mergers, you are faced with the unique challenges of boosting employee morale, mentoring and team-building - rather than just flexing your authoritarian muscle.

Yes, to get top performance from your people and compete successfully in international markets, you must be more than a boss - you must be a coach.

You might think the ability to be a good coach - to lead people to work as a team and produce winning results - is something that works in theory but not in practical, everyday managing. But everyone can develop the skills, the personal techniques and the attitude to successfully coach other people. Coaching, Mentoring and Managing features the expertise and wisdom of eight of America's most renowned experts on coaching and counseling. Together, they'll teach you how to:

  • Mentor employees to move them from good to great
  • Inspire peak performers to even greater productivity
  • Be a winner and teach others how to win, too
  • Tap into the hidden strengths of each person on your team
  • Use proven counseling techniques to turn problem employees into productive employees
  • Prevent team problems before they happen

    Coaching, Mentoring and Managing offers hundreds of other practical, focused techniques to make you and your team more positive, more productive and more effective. Each chapter is filled with real-world advice and management-changing exercises these professionals have used and developed for organizations just like yours and managers just like you."

    Peasant Cooperatives and Political Change in Peru, McClintock, Cynthia
    3 McClintock, Cynthia Peasant Cooperatives and Political Change in Peru
    Princeton University Press 1981 069102202X / 9780691022024 softcover used 418 pages, 6 inches by 9 inches tall 
    cover: "Sharing with other radical government leaders - such as Castro, Nyerere, Mao, and Allende - the common goal of developing a new political consciousness in their countries, General Juan Velasco Alvarado claimed to be leading Peru toward a 'fully participatory social democracy' from 1968 to 1975. To determine the extent to which this was true or even feasible, Cynthia McClintock examines Peru's experience with self-management and its effect on the political culture of Peru's peasants. This is the first study to apply to the topics of workplace democracy or change in political culture both 'before' and 'after' sample survey data as well as long-term participant observation.

    The author shows that, within the self-managed enterprises studied, new patterns of political participation and social solidarity did develop and did so rather rapidly. Peasants' loyalties and commitments, however, were focused upon their individual enterprise, and did not extend beyond it.

    Professor McClintock compares Peru's experience with self-management to that of Chile, Mexico, and Yugoslavia, considering social, political, and economic dimensions. She concludes that the greatest problem confronting a reform government is not that of an intractable, traditional, or timid peasantry, but rather that of creating new political and economic structures that offer significant incentives for change."
