The One Minute Manager Meets the Monkey (The Blanchard and Bowles Business Library)

By Ken Blanchard; William Oncken Jr.; Hal Burrows

New York: Harper. Trade Paperback. 1989. Fine. Interior pristine. Spine straight, tight, and uncreased. Not from a library. No remainder mark. 137 pages. In this latest in the One Minute Manager series, the authors chastise executives who never have time for family or their own job enhancement because they accept too many responsibilities--"monkeys" clinging to their backs--that properly belong to their staff. Based on seminars conducted by the late Oncken, the book explains in simple-minded if abstract terms how to achieve a balance between supervision and delegation for reduced tension and improved productivity. "There is a high correlation between self-reliance and morale," stress the authors. With humor and logic they describe the delicate business of assigning monkeys to the right masters and keeping them healthy, i.e., fed and cared for: " . . . if monkeys are managed properly, you don't have to manage people so much." Unequivocal assignments, proper coaching and interim check-ups, according to this program, can lead to effective delegation and, with it, a better life at home and office.

Amilcar Cabral: Revolutionary Leadership and People's War (African Studies Series 37)

By Patrick Chabal

Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1983. Trade Paperback. First Edition. Near Fine. Interior is unmarked, spine is square and tight, mild shelfwear, rear cover shows mild tanning, xii + 272 pages. This book tells the story of Amilcar Cabral who, as head of PAIGC, Guinea-Bissau's nationalist movement, became one of Africa's foremost revolutionary leaders. In less than twenty years of active political life, Cabral led Guinea-Bissau's nationalists to the most complete political and military success ever achieved by an African political movement against a colonial power. At the time of his death in 1973, months before Guinea-Bissau became independent, his influence extended well beyond the Lusophone world and Africa. He was a sophisticated analyst of the social, economic, and political factors which affect the developing world. Friends and foes alike admired his political acumen and saw in him a potential leader of a non-aligned movement.

The Bureaucratic Entrepreneur: How to Be Effective in Any Unruly Organization

By Richard N. Haass

Washington, DC: Brookings Institution Press. 1999. Paperback. Fine. Binding is square and tight. Interior is pristine. Cover is clean and crisp. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. Suitable for gifting. 220 pages. How do you figure out what to do in a job? How do you get it done? How should you deal with demanding bosses? How can you get the most out of subordinates? What should you do to get along with difficult colleagues and handle powerful interest groups and the media? Just how can you succeed in a world where persuasion rather than direct command is the rule? Using a compass as his operating metaphor--your boss is north of you, your staff is south, colleagues are east and so on--Richard Haass provides clear, practical guidelines for setting goals and translating goals into results. The result is a lively, useful book for people working in complex and unruly organizations of every sort and for students of both public administration and business.
