Discover the Proven “Low Drama, High Joy” Method for Productive, Empathy-Based Communication and Collaboration. Why do so many organizations, teams, couples, families, and groups who should be working together end up wasting energy on unproductive conflict? Even when everyone has the same general goals, what’s often missing is a deeper alignment based on mutual trust, respect, and empathy. With Radical Alignment, top-level life and business coaches (and happily married couple) Alexandra Jamieson and Bob Gower share their potent method for helping groups to stop clashing and start working together—to jump from “we can’t” to an enthusiastic “hell yes!” The essential tool at the heart of Radical Alignment is the All-In Method: a four-step approach to communication designed to increase clarity, minimize miscommunication, honor each person’s individuality, and build a shared sense of trust and respect for long-term success. With easy-to-follow instruction, Jamieson and Gower bring you: • The Foundations of Great Communication—what works, what doesn’t, and how to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of your own style • The All-In Method—a step-by-step walk-through of this proven approach to getting into radical alignment with others • The Method in Action—examples and exercises for using the All-In Method at work, at home, and in any situation • Scripts, suggestions, guidance, and additional resources for making this a lifelong practice for greater connection and intimacy “We believe passionately that the world needs more aligned teams in our businesses, organizations, communities, families, and intimate partnerships,” write the authors. “This means we need people who are able to have powerful and clear exchanges that build better connections.” Radical Alignment brings you a “low drama, high joy” technique to transform the way you collaborate and communicate in every area of your life.

Contested Records analyzes how some of the most well-known twenty-first century North American poets work with fraught documents. Whether it's the legal paperwork detailing the murder of 132 African captives, state transcriptions of the last words of death row inmates, or testimony from miners and rescue workers about a fatal mine disaster, author Michael Leong reveals that much of the power of contemporary poetry rests in its potential to select, adapt, evaluate, and extend public documentation.

What Indian Companies must do to Become World-Class Managing Radical Change: What Indian Companies Must Do to Become World-Class looks at what companies in India must do, not just to survive, but to rank among the best in their strategy, organization and management. According to internationally acclaimed management gurus Sumantra Ghoshal and Christopher A. Bartlett and industry insider Gita Piramal, the problem is not that managers are unaware of the need for a radical response to the problems and challenges posed by the new competitive, technological and market demands in India. But, trapped in an incrementalist mindsetýthat change can come only by degreesýdeep in their heart they do not feel the urgency that they profess. Without the energy of their own convictions, what chance do these managers have of leading change in their organizations? That is the fundamental premise behind this book, as well as its key purpose: to make managers believeýreally believeýthat radical performance improvement is possible. Ghoshal, Piramal and Bartlett feel that managers are the best teachers of managers, and so Managing Radical Change is a distillation of lessons offered by people as diverse as N.R. Narayana Murthy and Brijmohan Lall Munjal, Keki Dadiseth and Dhirubhai Ambani, Azim Premji and Rohinton Aga, Lakshmi Niwas Mittal and Subhash Chandra, Rahul Bajaj and Parvinder Singh. There is a wealth of information on the best companies in India and worldwide, among them Infosys, Wipro, Reliance, Hindustan Lever, GE and ABB. Lucidly written and brilliantly argued, Managing Radical Change is an invaluable roadmap for Indian executives on their journey towards excellence, and perhaps the most significant contribution to Indian management literature in recent times. A pervasive disease afflicts corporate India. It is called satisfactory underperformance: a state in which a company continues to make money but gradually loses its competitive edge as a complacent management fails to ask itself what it is doing to value add. The crisis comes, as it must, and the company suddenly finds itself in a situation where it is fighting for its survival.
