John F. Kennedy on Leadership
John F. Kennedy on Leadership identifies eleven core principles that made Kennedy, both before and during his presidency, a unique and dominant force who would serve as the standard by which future leaders would measure themselves?and by which they would be judged.
Current and aspiring leaders would do well to adopt these principles, which include:
? Questioning the status quo: Progress is change, and no leader ever became great without breaking rules.
? Turning liabilities into pluses, making the best of miscalculations and misjudgments, and staying educable: There is value in mistakes, and there is always more to learn.
? Making decisions: Although you solicit and incorporate many viewpoints, know that the buck stops with you.
? Presenting an idealized view of what the future can be: Some may feel that ?vision? is a tired concept, but properly crafted and communicated, it is a powerful motivator.
? Finding your own ?Bobby?: In building your team, surround yourself with people who not only are trustworthy and competent but who also make your job easier.
? Being the coolest person in the room: In times of crisis, take the reins. Your people will be looking to you; give them confidence.
A Handbook of Economic Anthropology
For more than a century, anthropologists have studied the economic lives
and institutions of people around the world. The results of their research
and reflection on economy have generally stayed within the discipline and
have not been available in an accessible form to a broader readership. This
major reference book is intended to correct this. This unique Handbook
contains substantial and invaluable summary discussions of work on
economic processes and issues, and on the relationship between economic
and non-economic areas of life. Furthermore it describes conceptual
orientations that are important among economic anthropologists, and
presents summaries of key issues in the anthropological study of economic
life in different regions of the world. Its scope and accessibility make it
useful both to those who are interested in a particular topic and to those
who want to see the breadth and fruitfulness of an anthropological study of
economics. Economists from a wide range of fields and perspectives - from
heterodox to classical, and from industrial economics to economic
psychology and sociology - will find much to engage them within this
exciting Handbook, as will anthropologists drawn to the significant
statements by senior figures in the field. Those involved in development
projects will find this an invaluable reference work with which to gain
greater understanding of and insight into the reasons for people?s economic
activities and decisions. The concise treatments of topics will provide
invaluable teaching aids and reference for further reading by scholars at all
levels of study.
