  • "A bumper podcast"

    Overall

    These free, monthly podcasts are one of the extra good things about having an Audible subscription as you get interviews with authors and also first chapters read from a book or books enabling one to get a good indication if an author or particular book appeals. This particular podcast was a bumper edition. A feast of first chapters from classic books of recent decades with authors such as Saul Bellow, John Irving, Betty Freidland, Randy Shilts to name but a few. What I found so useful, as well as entertaining, was I was able to decide not only which authors' book I would look out for, but also those I didn't fancy.

  • "Poignant and inspiring"

    Overall

    I found the interview with the author Michael Cox very poignant, knowing that he died not long after. I've read his The Meaning of Night and the sequel The Glass of Time with great enjoyment. Both are gripping books the latter even better than the former. Though the books are very long they are difficult to put down (or listen to now there are available as audio books). Fortunately, before he died, he knew what pleasure he had given many readers; and what better epitaph could a writer have than that his books give enjoyment. I'm sure that his legacy will persist and future generations of readers will be hooked as I was.

  • Who Says Elephants Can't Dance?: Inside IBM's Historic Turnaround

    "Really enjoyed it."

    Overall

    Nice easy listen and a fascinating story. I usually opt for books narrated by the author as they have more emotion. However Edward Herrmann really brings the story to life, and boy what a story!

  • "Great insight to major corporate ch..."

    0 of 0 helpful votes

    My company is going through a major transformation and I found this a really interesting insight to similar major changes at IBM and how one leader dealt with this. It covers the highs and lows/challenges and successes. IBM is clearly a massive complex entity and I was fascinated how such complexity still in the end has to be able to be summarised and netted out to understandable language and concepts. One gets the impression from the book that Gerstner brought this executive ability to take a helicopter view of things. He also was prepared to take tough decisions.

    In 1990, IBM had its most profitable year ever. By 1993, the company was on a watch list for extinction, victimized by its own lumbering size, an insular corporate culture, and the PC era IBM had itself helped invent.

    David Korten argues that global corporate consolidation of power is but one manifestation of what he calls "Empire" ¿ the organization of society by hierarchies of dominance that have held sway for the past 5,000 years. Empire has always resulted in misery for the many and fortune for the few. Now it threatens the very future of humanity. The Great Turning traces the ancient roots of Empire and charts its long evolution from monarchies to the transnational institutions of the global economy.

    Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki are both concerned. Their concern is that the rich are getting richer, but America is getting poorer. The entitlement mentality is epidemic, creating people who expect their country, employer, or family to take care of them. And like the polar ice caps, the middle class is disappearing. America is becoming a two-class society, and soon you will be either rich or poor. Trump and Kiyosaki want you to be rich.

The valued skills of the 21st Century will be those of the right brain: empathy, design, synthesis, and contextual thinking.

These efforts have gone under many banners: total quality management, reengineering, rightsizing, restructuring, cultural change, and turnarounds, to name a few. In almost every case, the goal has been to cope with a new, more challenging market by changing the way business is conducted. In this article, John Kotter outlines the eight largest errors that can doom these efforts.

    If you want to know why so many organizations sink into chaos, look no further than their leaders' mouths. Over and over, leaders present grand, overarching - yet fuzzy - notions of where they think the company is going. The result is often sloppy behavior and misalignment that can cost a company dearly. Effective communication is a leader's most critical tool for doing the essential job of leadership.
