The fall of the alphas : the new beta way to connect, collaborate, influence--and lead - Dana Ardi
Call Number: HD58.8 .A736 2013
ISBN: 0312681933
Utilizing years of advising companies of all sizes, hypergrowth startups to Fortune 500 company management teams, Dana Ardi identifies a pivotal evolutionary moment: the decline of the traditional Alpha-model (the top-down, male-dominated, authoritarian, corner-office hierarchy that has ruled organizational landscapes for so long), as it is replaced by collaboration, connectivity, and the sharing of power. As Ardi persuasively demonstrates, in the new Beta organization, it is the team players, the sage advisors, the network experts, the trusted assistants, and the communications facilitators who are coming to the fore, as savvy managers learn to lead through influence and collaboration rather than authority and competition. From technology behemoths to small and medium-sized businesses, Beta has become the new paradigm for success in today's challenging market. - Book description

The human brand : how we relate to people, products, and companies - Chris Malone, Susan T. Fiske
Call Number: HF5415.32 .M36 2013
ISBN: 1118611314
People everywhere describe their relationships with brands in a deeply personal way—we hate our banks, love our smartphones, and think the cable company is out to get us. What's actually going on in our brains when we make these judgments? Through original research, customer loyalty expert Chris Malone and top social psychologist Susan Fiske discovered that our perceptions arise from spontaneous judgments on warmth and competence, the same two factors that also determine our impressions of people. We see companies and brands the same way we automatically perceive, judge, and behave toward one another. As a result, to achieve sustained success, companies must forge genuine relationships with customers. And as customers, we have a right to expect relational accountability from the companies and brands we support. - Book description

Deliberating American monetary policy : a textual analysis - Cheryl Schonhardt-Bailey ; with assistance and advice from Andrew Bailey
Call Number: HG540 .S36 2013
ISBN: 0262019574
American monetary policy is formulated by the Federal Reserve and overseen by Congress. Both policy making and oversight are deliberative processes, although the effect of this deliberation has been difficult to quantify. In this book, Cheryl Schonhardt-Bailey provides a systematic examination of deliberation on monetary policy from 1976 to 2008 by the Federal Reserve's Open Market Committee (FOMC) and House and Senate banking committees. Her innovative account employs automated textual analysis software to study the verbatim transcripts of FOMC meetings and congressional hearings; these empirical data are supplemented and supported by in-depth interviews with participants in these deliberations. - Book description

The tipping point : how little things can make a big difference - Malcolm Gladwell
Call Number: HM1033 .G53 2002
ISBN: 0316346624
The tipping point is that magic moment when an idea, trend, or social behavior crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire. Just as a single sick person can start an epidemic of the flu, so too can a small but precisely targeted push cause a fashion trend, the popularity of a new product, or a drop in the crime rate. This widely acclaimed bestseller, in which Malcolm Gladwell explores and brilliantly illuminates the tipping point phenomenon, is already changing the way people throughout the world think about selling products and disseminating ideas. - Book description

Grounded : how leaders stay rooted in an uncertain world - Bob Rosen
Call Number: HD57.7 .R657 2013
ISBN: 1118680774
Most [leaders] are poorly served by the prevailing paradigm that obsessively focuses on what we do to produce short-term results while sabotaging who we are as healthy human beings. Few have seen alternatives, until now. "Grounded" proposes a new approach that's designed for actual humans who must grapple with these forces. This new paradigm speaks to our better selves. Based on the author's Healthy Leader model, it focuses on the six personal dimensions that fuel—and refuel—the world's top leaders: physical, emotional, intellectual, social, vocational, and spiritual health. - Book description

Financial asset pricing theory - Claus Munk
Call Number: HG4636 . M86 2013
ISBN: 0199585490
Financial Asset Pricing Theory offers a comprehensive overview of the classic and the current research in theoretical asset pricing. Asset pricing is developed around the concept of a state-price deflator which relates the price of any asset to its future (risky) dividends and thus incorporates how to adjust for both time and risk in asset valuation. The willingness of any utility-maximizing investor to shift consumption over time defines a state-price deflator which provides a link between optimal consumption and asset prices that leads to the Consumption-based Capital Asset Pricing Model (CCAPM). - Book description

Environmental debt : the hidden costs of a changing global economy - Amy Larkin
Call Number: HD75.6 .L37 2013
ISBN: 1137278552
Consultant Larkin aims to inspire leadership in individuals and all corporate stakeholders who “hold the keys to the survival of the natural world in their daily decisions and actions.” Noting that everything depends on nature, her experience confirms that when environmental problems start to derail corporate success, action results. She uses the term environmental debt to mean “polluting and/or damaging actions that will cost other parties (people, businesses or governments) real money in the future.” The three underlying principles of the author’s Nature Means Business framework for twenty-first-century commerce are that pollution can no longer be free or subsidized, the long-term view must guide all decisions and accounting, and government plays a vital role in catalyzing clean technology and growth while preventing environmental destruction. She concludes, “Nothing except nature can transform the world as swiftly as can business—for better or for worse.” - Booklist, Mary Whaley
