The tools and techniques used at Sears, Roebuck might have been right, sometimes even spectacular. And the managers who ran the GM programs might have been the best and the brightest. Certainly the best and the brightest people traditionally have been attracted to the biggest and the best companies, like GM and IBM. But the programs themselves were based on assumptions that were flawed.
John Kenneth Galbraith, when asked what he believed was America’s perception of the country’s giant corporations, said that we feared corporate power.
In 1985, John Maxwell founded The
INJOY Group, a collection of three
distinct companies that employ 200
people and provide resources and
services that help people reach their
personal and leadership potential. In
addition to building a successful
organization, John has authored
more than thirty books, including the
New York Times best sellers The 21
Irrefutable Laws of Leadership and
Charity Law & Social Policy explores contemporary law, policy and practice in a
range of modern common law nations. It does so from the perspective of how this
has evolved in the UK. As progenitor of a system bequeathed to its colonies and
after centuries of leadership in developing the core principles, policies and precedents,
the jurisdiction of England & Wales has been and remains central to charity
law as a common law phenomenon.
We analyze the development of 49 local bond markets. Our main finding is that policies and laws
matter: Countries with stable inflation rates and strong creditor rights have more developed local
bond markets and rely less on foreign-currency-denominated bonds. The results suggest that
“original sin” is a misnomer. Emerging economies are not inherently dependent upon
foreign-currency debt. Rather, by improving policy performance and strengthening institutions they
may develop local currency bond markets, reduce their currency mismatch, and lessen the likelihood
of future crises....
In fiscal year 2001, Congress allocated funds for NIOSH to establish a new program for personal protective technology research to protect the nation’s miners, firefighters and other emergency responders, and health care, agricultural, and industrial workers. To carry out this research, NIOSH formed the National Personal Protective Technology Laboratory (NPPTL).
Following the signing of the Lisbon Treaty the authors took a strategic
decision to ring-fence discussions of the relevant changes in the book. If
you read the ‘boxed text’ throughout this book, you will realise that the
changes affecting the field of criminal law contained in the Lisbon Treaty
are particularly important. The value of this ring-fencing approach was
demonstrated when on Friday 13 June 2008 the legislation necessary to
ratify the Lisbon Treaty by Ireland was rejected in a referendum.
This Handbook of Police Administration, co-edited by Jim Ruiz and Don Hummer,
provides a smorgasbord of topics that are at the coalface of policing: the difficulties
police encounter dealing with drug problems, traffic issues, race and ethnicity challenges,
and street gang problems. Cross-cutting themes such as leadership in policing,
use of force, and understanding how the law shapes (or fails to shape) police
practice are relevant to students of police studies, practitioners, and scholars alike.
By clearly stating and understanding the core beliefs that an organization has or wants to adopt about ethical issues such as honesty, integrity, dignity of individuals, or caring about others, policies that are straightforward and easily implementable can be designed. By clearly thinking through a position on the environment, whether to comply with the law or to leave the earth better than we found it, we can begin marshaling the resources to realize these basic beliefs.
The Elon University School of Law opened in downtown Greensboro, North
Carolina, in fall 2006 with a charter class of 100 students. The school builds on Elon
University’s national reputation for excellence in engaged learning and leadership
education. It provides experiential opportunities for law students in a learning laboratory
environment, with direct access to the region’s major courts, law firms and government
and nonprofit agencies. Elon law students acquire excellent knowledge of the law.
An exploration of the lessons that the unresolved Israel-Palestinian conflict can draw from South Africa’s ’negotiated revolution’. Six realms are compared: economic interdependence, religious divisions, third party intervention, leadership, political culture and violence. Contrasting insights form two opposite solutions to a nationalist conflict shed light on the nature of ethnicity as well as the limits of negotiation politics.
Unions seem to be perpetually at a crossroads. Those in the private sector have
suffered membershipd eclines for more than 45 years and, even under the dynamic
leadership of AFL-CIPOr esident John Sweeneyt, hey will be hard-pressed
to reverse the powerful tide against unions in the private sector. In government,
union membershiph as been stagnant since the 1980s. Althought here have been
somep ositive incrementalc hangesi n the state legal environmenfto r collective

Obstacles to serving the common good come in many forms —lack of rule of law, corruption, tendencies
towards greed, poor stewardship of resources—but the most signiﬁcant for a business leader on a
personal level is leading a “divided” life. This split between faith and daily business practice can lead
to imbalances and misplaced devotion to worldly success.
Florida public agencies are faced with yet another challenge. Not only must we control costs through the application of sound records and information management principles, but we must also apply these principles in light of the public’s right to know. Chapter 119, Florida Statutes, Florida’s Public Records Law, is one of the most open public records laws in the country and a model for other states. Florida has had some form of a public records law since 1909 and is recognized nationally for its leadership regarding public records and accessibility to public information.
Many special events are held on private property, with leadership shared among the venue owner/
private security and the local police and ire departments. Even when one law enforcement agency
clearly has the lead and provides most of the resources—a July 4th celebration in a city park, for
example—assistance from other law enforcement agencies may be needed (e.g., sherif’s oice for
prisoner transport, county police for standby tactical support).
The insurance industry provides leadership in several key areas to address auto theft.
Information provided to customers creates awareness and prompts practices that
deter and prevent auto theft. Some companies offer discounts for car alarms and
tracking and disabling devices. According to the National Association of Insurance
Commissioners, laws in nine states require insurers to provide discounts on base
rates for comprehensive insurance for antitheft devices.
