Nouvelle édition actualisée et rendue plus pédagogique encore de cet ouvrage spécialisé en coaching des organisations et des groupes visant le fonctionnement d'une entité entière dans ses différentes composantes et actions. La TOB, théorie organisationnelle de Berne, l'inventeur de l'analyse transactionnelle, sur laquelle il repose s'imposant de plus en plus comme une référence en entreprise. Rappel : ce coaching diffère du coaching d'équipe souvent appelé team building qui porte sur la cohésion et la performance collective d'une équipe.
Ce livre, devenu une référence, donne aux professionnels du coaching et aux cadres dirigeants un outil pour intervenir sur l'ensemble de l'organisation. Il offre des grilles de décodage pertinentes au travers d'un modèle, capable de comprendre et prévoir les phénomènes en jeu dans les groupes et les organisations et qui en reflète les multiples aspects. Une boîte à outils en fin de chaque chapitre, des schémas d'aide à la mise en oeuvre et de nombreux exemples ont fait de l'ouvrage le manuel pratique indispensable à toute personne voulant développer ses compétences de coach en organisation. La 2e édition approfondit notamment les processus parallèles ou miroirs, les «bugs culturels», qui souvent freinent les organisations à réaliser ce qu'elles sont, et fait découvrir quelques nouveaux ateliers dont l'insolite mais efficace sheep coaching.

Care to Dare
Author: George Kohlrieser, Susan Goldsworthy, Duncan Coombe
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
Have you ever been led by someone who cared for you like family, and dared you to achieve more than you ever thought possible for yourself, your organization, and even society? Award-winning author of Hostage at the Table, George Kohlrieser, along with his co-authors Susan Goldsworthy and Duncan Coombe, explain how becoming a secure base leader releases extraordinary potential in others. Part of the Warren Bennis leadership series Care to Dare shows you how to become a Secure Base Leader so that you release your followers from the fears that get in the way of their performance. It shows you how you can unleash astonishing potential by building the trust, delivering the change, and inspiring the focus that underpins sustainable high performance. From extensive interviews with executives from all over the world, as well as from surveys with more than a thousand executives, the book reveals the nine characteristics that Secure Base Leaders display on a daily basis. The research shows that a primary difference between a successful leader and a failed leader is the presence or absence of secure bases in his or her life. Care to Dare will take you on a journey where you will discover your own secure bases, past and present, and determine how you can be a secure base for other people in your life at work and at home.

Since the 1990s, internationalisation has become key for institutions wishing to secure funding for higher education and research. For the academic community, this strategic shift has had many consequences. Priorities have changed and been influenced by new ways of thinking about universities, and of measuring their impact in relation to each other and to their social goals. Debates are ongoing and hotly contested. In this collection, a mix of renowned academics and newer voices reflect on some of the realities of international research partnerships. They both question and highlight the agency of academics, donors and research institutions in the geopolitics of knowledge and power. The contributors offer fresh insights on institutional transformation, the setting of research agendas, and access to research funding, while highlighting the dilemmas researchers face when their institutions are vulnerable to state and donor influence. Offering a range of perspectives on why academics should collaborate and what for, this book will be useful to anyone interested in how scholars are adapting to the realities of international networking and how research institutions are finding innovative ways to make North–South partnerships and collaborations increasingly fair, sustainable and mutually beneficial.
These papers focus on the topic of leadership in the library and information professions, providing an overview of institutes, programs and activities occurring around the world.

They will provide valuable insights to anyone interested in workforce planning strategies aimed at addressing current shortages of library leaders, as well as those who may have experienced difficulties recruiting to leadership positions and now want to explore the best ways of developing and equipping their own staff with skills to enable them to become the leaders of the future.
