How do senior leaders, in their own words, describe the most effective leaders—the ones that get results, grow the business, enhance the culture, and leave in their wake a trail of other really effective leaders? Conversely, how do senior leaders describe the kind of leader that undercuts the organization’s capacity and capability to create its future? The book Scaling Leadership (Wiley, 2019), based on groundbreaking research, shows how senior leaders describe and develop leadership that works, that does not work, that scales, and that limits scale.

(Wiley: Hoboken, NJ) -- The book, Unlocking Creativity: How to Solve Any Problem and Make the Best Decisions (Wiley, 2019), is an exploration of the creative process and how organizations can clear the way for innovation.

In many organizations, creative individuals face stubborn resistance to new ideas. Managers and executives oftentimes reject innovation and unconventional approaches due to misplaced allegiance to the status quo. Questioning established practices or challenging prevailing sentiments is frequently met with stiff resistance. In this climate of stifled creativity and inflexible adherence to conventional wisdom, potentially game-changing ideas are dismissed outright. Senior leaders claim to value creativity, yet often lack the knowledge to provide a creative framework. Unlocking Creativity offers effective methods and real-world examples of how the most successful organizations create cultures of innovation and experimentation.

(Wiley: Hoboken, NJ) -- Scaling a business is not for the faint of heart. It’s a mind-bending journey that causes millions of business owners around the globe to either throw in the towel or avoid risk entirely and suffer from smallness and mediocrity.

Most of these businesses fail because they are ill-prepared to face the real challenges involved in scaling. Either they don’t have the bandwidth to keep up with the sales demand or production, miss out on major opportunities due to fear, or keep making the same mistakes again and again because systems and processes aren’t in sync with the rate of growth.

(Wiley: Hoboken, NJ) -- Our world is changing faster than our ability to adapt. Ambushed by speed and complexity, we face uncertainty with fear and mistrust. Organizations are not adapting well either. Seventy percent of change efforts fail; obsession with short-term results undermine long-term success. Inside communities there’s diminishing trust in our institutions and a growing inability to solve our social problems. The primary culprit for these maladies is our lack of awareness.

Conscious, by Bob Rosen and Emma-Kate Swann (Wiley, 2018), is your personal road map through transformation—helping you adapt, to be aware and accountable. Being conscious helps us think deeper, learn faster, and collaborate better. Why not be the one with your head lights on while others are driving in the dark?

Inside this book are ideas drawn from psychology, biology, management, leadership, neuroscience, and behavioral economics. It also goes beyond emotional intelligence to examine the broader capabilities needed to survive and thrive.

(Wiley: Hoboken, NJ) -- The book, Managing to Make a Difference: How to Engage, Retain, and Develop Talent for Maximum Performance, by Larry Sternberg and Kim Turnage (Wiley, 2017), presents a leadership guide for those in the middle.

The C-suite has a wealth of resources for leadership guidance, but middle managers face a quandary: Often given little guidance on how to excel, they are also under enormous pressure to do a variety of things other than “lead.”

(Wiley: Hoboken, NJ) -- Illuminating Statistical Analysis Using Scenarios and Simulations, by Jeffrey E. Kottemann (Wiley, 2017), presents the basic concepts of statistics and statistical inference using the dual mechanisms of scenarios and simulations. It features an integrated approach of statistical scenarios and simulations to aid readers in developing key intuitions needed to understand the wide ranging concepts and methods of statistics and inference.

Scenario-specific sampling simulations depict the results that would be obtained by a very large number of individuals investigating the same scenario, each with their own evidence, while graphical depictions of the simulation results present clear and direct pathways to intuitive methods for statistical inference. These intuitive methods can then be easily linked to traditional formulaic methods, and the author does not simply explain the linkages, but rather provides demonstrations throughout for a broad range of statistical phenomena. In addition, induction and deduction are repeatedly interwoven, which fosters a natural “need to know basis” for ordering the topic coverage.
