Carlo Ancelotti is one of the greatest managers of all time, with five Champions League titles to his name. Yet his approach could not be further from the aggressive theatricals favoured by many of his rivals. His understated style has earned him the fierce loyalty of players like David Beckham, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Cristiano Ronaldo. In Quiet Leadership, Ancelotti reveals the full, riveting story of his managerial career - his methods, mentors, mistakes and triumphs - and takes us inside the dressing room to trace the characters, challenges and decisions that have shaped him. The result is both a scintillating memoir and a rare insight into the business of leadership.

Finally, A Down-to-Earth Process for Removing Barriers and Obstacles to Discovering Your Inner Leader Trish Zenczak is one of America's truest survivors! As a survivor of childhood physical and sexual abuse she has overcome the need for angry rages, spiteful behavior, feelings of abandonment, and resenting those who left or victimized her. Remarkably, she found a way out of her promiscuous, partying lifestyle filled with destructive relationships by making wise and healthy choices to "clean up" in order to live a more positive and influential life of helping others. She attributes her success to her strong faith in God and to the discovery of her inner leader-an inner leader we all can access to help us triumph over anything. Her story is an inspiration to anyone --from those who have lived the life of abuse and abandonment to those who deal with typical life obstacles such as forgiveness, anger, or relationship issues. Along her journey many have asked her, "How did you beat the odds? How did you keep yourself from going down the wrong path? " Through this 30-day journey Trish shares wisdom and insight for dealing with life's obstacles and pain while giving us practical and real-life skills for climbing out of the pits and ruts of life. She also encourages us to allow God to work through us to discover our own quiet leader so we may share our story with others. Take the challenge as you ponder thought-provoking readings and questions that will require you to consider reasons, actions and excuses that hinder you from moving forward in life and having a more developed Christ-like mindset. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "Trish Zenczak offers the timeless wisdom of the Scripture rightfully applied to the painful experiences of her life. Caution: This is not a book for people looking for another self-help expos from someone who's never been there...this is real truth colliding with real life, in a way that is powerful, filled with purpose, and genuine healing. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to let the Lord shape the past into an amazing future." -- Dr. E. Dale Locke, Lead Pastor, Community of Hope Church

What do you think is common between George Washington and the Buddha, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk and Nelson Mandela, Rosa Parks and Florence Nightingale……… **Now available also in Portuguese and Spanish** That they were great leaders? True. But did you know that they were also all introverts? From Prasenjeet Kumar, the Amazon #1 best-selling author, comes an outstanding collection of uplifting stories of the greatest leaders of all times that have used their powers of introversion to rewrite History. But hold a second. Can Introverts really lead? And if yes, can they just lead, as any imbecile hereditary heir to the throne is expected to, or provide legendary leadership? * Historically, introverts have NOT only been successful as leaders but ultra-successful! And most of them are so extremely well-known that you will be surprised. * More importantly, they succeeded not because they could overcome their introversion, BUT because of their introversion. * Introverts have been successful in supposedly all extroverted fields of leadership be it military, politics, academics, or religion. Some led their troops into the battlefield while others led quietly, non-violently or passively. So what has made these introverted leaders so successful? * That they had a rich vision or imagination. * Next, these leaders took small but concrete steps to realise their vision. * Third that they had an analytical mind. They took the time to think, plan and act decisively. * And finally, they led more by action and example than by words. So, ladies and gentlemen, be prepared to immerse yourselves into legendary tales of courage and valour shown by quiet, shy and sensitive men and women from all around the world. You will read how these quiet leaders faced the biggest challenges and threats of their lives and how they rose from the ashes like the legendary Phoenix bird but quietly. Like a "Quiet Phoenix," as this series of books is called. This book is for YOU: * If you are an introvert who wants to understand how introverted leaders could lead so effectively; * If you want to improve your self-esteem; * If you are an extrovert who feels that introverts just can’t lead; * If you want to understand leadership qualities or traits in general; or * If you simply love reading uplifting stories of courage and valour.

It seems as though loud people rule the world. It's as if whomever is the loudest and the most present, will get the most done. Even when it comes to managerial positions. Because introversion and leadership are not usually directly linked. And that is a missed opportunity for the introverted man or woman who is less likely to take career steps. And for the organization because an introvert has unique and extremely valuable leadership qualities.In her book, Introverted Leadership, Karolien Koolhof shows what that kind of leadership looks like. Based on the experiences of thirty introverted leaders from home and abroad, she offers introverts insight into their unique strengths and lets extroverts dwell on misconceptions surrounding introversion and leadership. She also gives concrete tips to both introverted leaders and their extroverted colleagues.Karolien wrote this book based on her own research among 400 introverted leaders worldwide. In addition to talent, she also highlights the cultural aspect of introversion, offering a more complete picture than many other books on introversion and contributing more to mutual understanding and diversity in the workplace.

Written by an author team from one of Europe's leading management schools, Leadership encourages critical appraisal of the mainstream viewpoints and personal reflection on leadership experience in a way that is both clear and highly engaging. Divided into four parts, the book brings together core themes and debates within the field and provides a wealth of diverse real-world case studies to help readers make the transition from theory to practice. The first part of the book, 'Defining the Terrain', lays the foundation for subsequent chapters by exploring what we mean by leadership, how it compares to management, and why we study it. The second and third parts of the book build on this, addressing core topics that have shaped leadership thinking for academics and practitioners over the last fifty years; as well as considering the cutting-edge debates within the field and tackling issues such as leadership-as-practice, strategic leadership, ethical leadership, and leading change. Finally, the fourth part, 'Developing Leaders', explores traditional and state-of-the-art development techniques, before encouraging the reader to consider their own leadership through identity work. Leadership mappings in the final chapter assimilate the range of theories and themes from the previous chapters, providing a framework for comparisons and connections throughout the book. In addition to the book's thematic approach, carefully designed learning features invite readers to exercise critical thinking skills and develop their own practice and perspectives on the material presented. This book has dedicated online resources, which include: Student resources: Web links to related sites Links to feeds from topical journals Online glossary Lecturer resources: Integrative case studies PowerPoint slides Suggestions for discussion points Video clips of inspirational speeches and discussions on leadership

In our outgoing, Type-A business culture, introverts can feel excluded, overlooked or misunderstood, their reticence mistaken for arrogance or even lack of intelligence. And their inconsistent people skills often cause their careers to plateau. But Jennifer Kahnweiler shows that not only can introversion be managed, it can even be a source of strength. Ask Bill Gates or Warren Buffett, leaders she cites as shy introspectives who have developed ways to thrive in a challenging environment.It is estimated that as many as 40% of executives are introverts. Based on conversations with over 100 introverts, Kahnweiler lays out a progressive four-step strategy for succeeding in an extroverted world. Preparation: carefully devise a game plan for any potentially anxiety-producing situation. Presence: knowing that you're prepared, be completely focused on the present moment. Push: with this firm foundation, go beyond your comfort zone. And finally, practice, practice, practice.
