HiBob Study Reveals 44% of Job Seekers Hesitate to Join Companies with Different Political Views
HCI
April 03, 2024
April 3, 2024 – New York, New York: Leading HR technology disruptor HiBob is releasing the results of its latest study, “Sociopolitics in the US Workplace,” which reveals that despite people not wanting to discuss politics at work, less will leave their jobs than in previous years. This year's findings build upon the insights gathered from a similar survey conducted in 2023. As the 2024 Presidential election approaches, the survey reveals profound insights into workplace dynamics and the challenges for leaders and HR professionals in establishing appropriate forums for discourse amidst heightened political tensions. While political discourse poses a reduced risk to retention compared to previous years, the study cautions against other threats to talent acquisition, culture, and engagement.

How To Avoid And Counteract Gaslighting As A Leader
Linkedln
February 11, 2024
We’ve all been there: A leader conveys a particular negative message, a certain harmful policy or practice is put in place or shifting priorities result in moving away from what was previously discussed or agreed upon. Sometimes this happens in completely innocent ways; after all, we are all imperfect, fallible individuals, and we fall down and mess up even when we have the best of intentions. Sometimes, things are even unclear in our own mind or we simply forget.

'Bluer than Indigo' Leadership: The Journey of Becoming a Truly Remarkable Leader
HCI Press
July 16, 2021
Early in my adult life, I learned about an Asian proverb that translates as ‘Bluer than Indigo.' If you think about the color indigo, it is a brilliant, deep and vibrant blue — what some would call the bluest of blues. To have something that is “bluer than indigo” is rare and truly remarkable.

Contrary to popular myth, there is no one-size-fits-all or cookie cutter approach to effective leadership. There is no silver bullet, no secret sauce, no go-to model that will solve all our problems. The truth is, great leaders have all had their unique strengths (and flaws) and have all had to discover and then pave their own distinctive path in their life’s journey to fulfill their leadership potential.

‘Bluer than Indigo’ Leadership will help you discover your own path and explore those ordinary, everyday actions that will help you respond to an uncertain future and produce extraordinary results for individuals, teams, and organizations.

The Alchemy of Truly Remarkable Leadership: Ordinary, Everyday Actions that Produce Extraordinary Results
HCI Press
November 20, 2020
Consider how the nature of work has shifted over the past 50 years. With increased globalization, rapid technological advancement, and a shift in economic composition, the average jobs of today look very little like the average jobs 50 years ago. What will the jobs and organizations of tomorrow look like? Moreover, what does this all mean for organizational leaders? What are the core competencies and capabilities of organizations and their leadership that are prepared for continued disruption and geo-political and socio-economic shifts? Regardless of what the future holds, increasingly leaders need to be socially-minded, data-driven, decisive, champions of talent, and disruptors of the traditional notions of leadership, teams, organizations, and work. The Alchemy of Truly Remarkable Leadership will help you to explore your own leadership competencies and capabilities and consider ways to apply and implement them into your workplace and personal life.

International Political Economy: Facing Global Challenges
Common Ground Publishing
June 15, 2018
International political economy (IPE) is an interdisciplinary field that draws on many distinct academic schools, most notably political economy, political science and economics, also sociology, history, and cultural studies. IPE ultimately is concerned with the ways in which political forces (states, institutions, individual actors, etc.) shape the systems through which economic interactions are expressed, and conversely the effect that economic interactions (including the power of collective markets and individuals acting both within and outside them) have upon political structures and outcomes. Given the rapidly changing and increasingly interconnected global landscape, a solid grasp of global systems and structures are important for an informed citizenry and competitive institutions. Within the context of complex global tensions, IPE has emerged as a balanced and interdisciplinary approach to examining and addressing the global challenges we face. This edited collection provides a comprehensive introduction to the interdisciplinary field of International Political Economy (IPE) and explores its increasingly important role within a shifting global landscape, presenting a wide range of cross-disciplinary research in an organized, clear, and accessible manner. This book will be informative to scholars and practitioners alike seeking to understand the wide range of influences and impacts of global affairs in an increasingly interconnected and globalized world.

Strategic Sustainable Business
HCI Press
December 10, 2015
Strategic Sustainable Business provides readers with a broad overview of the core concepts of sustainability and sustainable business practice. It is intended for use in undergraduate business courses and will also be of interest to students in environmental studies, engineering, urban planning, and government. This book is not meant to exhort all business people on the path to sustainability enlightenment but to highlight some of the benefits, opportunities, and challenges associated with sustainable business practices. What distinguishes this book is that it provides a conceptual foundation to promote understanding of sustainability concepts and frameworks and also discusses real-world business examples of sustainability in action. It is believed that this is the best way to teach sustainability as it applies to the business world—a conceptual foundation with practical application. Sustainable business involves businesses operating with interest and concern for their long-term economic, environmental, and social impact. For-profit businesses focus first and foremost on their own economic bottom line, oftentimes, with a short-term perspective. However, with a sustainability perspective, businesses also consider a longer-term and broader triple bottom line that takes into account not only company profits but also environmental and social impacts. The economic, environmental, and social perspectives are increasingly interrelated and relevant for businesses.

The Organizational and Business Ethics Imperative
Common Ground Publishing
June 05, 2015
One need only turn on the news or briefly peruse the daily headlines to see countless examples and evidences of ethical failures in all aspects of our daily lives. The impacts of these ethical missteps can be far reaching, often with everyone in society paying the price in some way. Furthermore, with an increasingly interconnected and complex globalized world, we have communication technologies that allow for the instant sharing of information, along with a citizenry hungry to consume the next big scandal. Once more, increasingly complex technological integration of previously isolated systems has created ever more complex systems that are increasingly sensitive to the surrounding environment. This can often result in a chain reaction effect of one seemingly small and isolated ethical blunder that can then have wide-ranging societal impacts. Within this increasingly complex environment, with ever more damage caused by unethical leaders in organizations of all types and sizes in all parts of the globe, never before has there existed such an imperative for strong organizational and business ethics. Additionally, not only must organizational leaders seek to "do no harm," but they must put their pragmatic ethical knowledge to work to find creative and innovative solutions to society's most perplexing challenges.

Teaching Organizational and Business Ethics
Common Ground Publishing
June 05, 2015
In an increasingly complex and interconnected world, with a seemingly endless supply of examples of corporate scandal and organizational exploitation and abuses of employees, consumers, and the environment represented daily in the media, there is an ever increasing need for our organizational leaders to be more firmly grounded in sound ethical principles and practices. Furthermore, the business students of today will be the business leaders of tomorrow and need to be adequately trained in how to deal with the complexity and the ambiguity inherent in the ethical dilemmas they will face. With the far reaching societal impacts of organizational and business ethics missteps, we need business leaders with pragmatic ethical knowledge and dispositions and sensitivities to work to find creative and innovative solutions to society's most perplexing challenges.

Strategic Organizational and Business Ethics Toolkit
HCI Press
January 18, 2015
Ethics is about determining value; it’s deciding what’s worth doing and what doesn’t matter so much. Business ethics is the way we decide what kind of career to pursue, what choices we make on the job, which companies we want to work with, and what kind of economic world we want to live in and then leave behind for those coming after. There are no perfect answers to these questions, but there’s a difference between thinking them through and winging it. Strategic Organizational and Business Ethics Toolkit provides a framework for identifying, analyzing, and resolving ethical dilemmas encountered through working life.

Academic Service-Learning Across Disciplines: Models, Outcomes, and Assessment
Common Ground Publishing
January 31, 2012
While service-learning is not a new phenomenon, the popularity and usage of this "civically-engaged" experiential learning pedagogy has increased in educational settings in recent years. As we live in an increasingly hyper-competitive and interconnected globalized world, where consumers and citizens are demanding greater levels of corporate social responsibility and civic engagement from organizational leaders within their local community, service-learning is being utilized more and more to provide meaningful community service opportunities that simultaneously teach civic responsibility and encourage life-long civic engagement, while also providing opportunities for significant real-life, hands-on learning of important skills and vital social understanding for students. This edited collection provides a comprehensive introduction to service-learning, its outcomes, and approaches to effective assessment of service-learning activities by presenting a wide range of cross-disciplinary research in an organized, clear, and accessible manner. It will be informative to both K-12 and higher education teaching professionals, administrators, students, and community leaders seeking to understand proven practices and methods for effective Service-Learning implementation across academic disciplines.

"Globalization" is a key concept that represents a wide range of complex processes in our modern world. These processes have wide sweeping impacts on the international political economy, international capitalism, and the ability for organizations of all types to gain and maintain a competitive advantage and successfully compete in an increasingly global economy. Additionally, increasing "globalization" over the past several decades has changed the dynamics of an increasingly international labor force, how organizations compete for this labor, their internal labor dynamics, and ultimately how they do business. As such, the nature of work and the workplace has also shifted dramatically over the past several decades. This edited collection provides a comprehensive introduction to "globalization" and its wide sweeping impacts for the modern workplace, presenting a wide range of cross-disciplinary research in an organized, clear, and accessible manner. It will be informative to academics and students interested in the interplay between macro global processes and the more micro organizational and individual impacts, while also instructing managers, policy makers, and practitioners of all types interested in the role that "globalization" is playing in shifting international labor dynamics and the transformation of the modern workplace.

In this research, I apply and extend Handel's (2005) Post and Neo-Fordist framework for understanding job characteristics and job satisfaction. Prior research has indicated that the nature of work has changed dramatically in recent years in response to economic shifts and an increasingly global economy. However, there is little agreement on whether the overall quality of work has improved or declined over that period. Furthermore, less is known about changes in job satisfaction and its various indicators over time, based on how the workers feel. Finally, even less is known about the overall comparative quality of work and job satisfaction across the global economy. In this study, I use non-panel longitudinal data from the International Social Survey Program (Work Orientations I and II: 1989 and 1997?survey questions on job characteristics and job quality) to conduct an exploratory comparative analysis of job quality and job satisfaction in relation to the differing theoretical predictions of Post-Fordist and Neo-Fordist paradigms in looking at changing job quality characteristics across nations as they relate to these global economic shifts.
