During my years at CNN, I’ve spoken to and worked with countless business leaders. Interviewing them always made me wonder: What makes a truly great leader? Is it something you’re born with? Or can leadership be taught? Can someone be coached into leadership, like so many books I see at airport bookshops proclaim? Is leadership a function of the situation (would Churchill have risen to greatness without facing the menace of Hitler? Remember, Churchill wasn’t reelected after winning World War II)? Or is leadership a function of culture, with certain cultures breeding leaders better than others? The authors of The Rabbi and the CEO have arrived at an innovative and powerful answer. Blending time-honored traditions with cutting- edge management methods, this book produces an amalgam that offers leaders (and leaders-in-waiting) a kind of power that’s often missing in boardrooms. Steeped in the rich, ancient tradition of Jewish thought, this book makes the timeless wisdom of the ages directly relevant to today’s business leaders. The unique synergy comes from an unusual partnership: the prominent Rabbi Aaron Raskin, eloquent spokesman for Judaism, and author of Letters of Light; and Dr. Thomas D. Zweifel, a CEO and leadership professor and consultant in his own right, and the author of four previous books on leadership and people power, including "Communicate or Die" and "Culture Clash." Why Judaism? Don’t other traditions offer equally profound and rich principles and insightful stories? Yes, all roads lead to Rome, and there are countless ways to reveal essential truth. On the anniversary of a death, for example, Catholics offer a memorial mass; Muslims might read the 36th chapter of the Qur’an; Protestants might gather to sing hymns like the early twentieth-century song “Tell Mother I’ll Be There”; Hindus might cook the favorite meal of the deceased, bring it to the temple and serve it to the priest; Buddhists might burn special counterfeit money known as ghost money to repay the dead for their kindness; the Haida Indians of the American Northwest might set out a meal and burn the whole table; and Jews say the kadish prayer on the yahrzeit of their dead every year. Most everyone, it seems, lights a candle. But Jews are not universally called the People of the Book by accident. Their book, the Torah—the five books of Moses, also called the Pentateuch from the Greek word for “five”; or, by gentiles, the Old Testament—is a sheer boundless fount of stories about leaders and their moral dilemmas, from Abraham to Noah, from Eve to Sarah, from Moses to David. The Hebrew Bible is chock-full of leaders’ trials, tribu- lations, and triumphs. And if leadership is about freeing yourself from the shackles of the past and achieving a desired future, the Jews undertook one of the boldest collective emancipations of all time when they left Egypt. The Hebrew word for Egypt is mitzrayim, which means “the narrows.” A core objective of the Torah is to remove us from our own Egypt: to help us transcend our limitations, unleash our indomitable human spirit, and be all we can be. That is what true leadership is all about: enabling people to be themselves, take charge, and fulfill their highest aspirations. But the Rabbi and the CEO did not stop there. They found that when they married teachings from Torah and Talmud with modern leadership models, the combination yielded powerful insights into today’s leadership challenges—trials that would have given even great leaders like Churchill or Kennedy a headache—and useful instruments for tackling any issue that might confront a twenty-first-century manager. How do you keep your moral compass when you face an ethical dilemma? How do you restore the big picture in the clutter of the day- to-day? How do you communicate effectively to mobilize highly mobile knowledge workers for results? How do you manage outsourcing, offshoring, or virtual teams through remote empowerment...

Few are prepared for managing across borders, and the costs of cultural fiascos can spin out of control—from lawsuits to lost opportunities. But whether you bring wine to a dinner in Singapore, how many times you kiss in France, or other local etiquette have seldom been deal-breakers. What has derailed international business is the failure of managers to stand in their counterparts’ shoes and read between the lines. Forged in the fire of clashing cultures, Dr. Thomas D. Zweifel developed a foolproof methodology for cross-cultural leadership. This new edition tackles post-9/11 trends like BRICS emerging markets and the Arab Spring, ecommerce, and social networks. Packed with fascinating stories, cutting-edge research, and practical tools, Culture Clash 2 shows global managers how to: • Parachute into any culture and get the job done—while respecting local customs • Decode target cultures and avoid costly mistakes • Orchestrate global meetings and teleconferences for alignment • Build and manage global ventures and high-performance teams

It discusses a myriad of timeless factors in successful leadership, including the origin of psychoanalysis, the unconscious, neuroses, defense mechanisms, group psychology, organizations, and change." --Book Jacket.

For the socially conscious, the intellectually curious, or the creative soul comes an inspiring, New York Times bestselling handbook for success in business, life, and the all-important task of building a more compassionate world—by the visionary founder and CEO of KIND Healthy Snacks. When Daniel Lubetzky started KIND Healthy Snacks in 2004, he aimed to defy the conventional wisdom that snack bars could never be both tasty and healthy, convenient and wholesome. A decade later, the transformative power of the company’s “AND” philosophy has resulted in an astonishing record of achievement. KIND has become the fastest-growing purveyor of healthy snacks in the country. Meanwhile, the KIND Movement—the company’s social mission to make the world a little kinder—has sparked more than a million good deeds worldwide. In Do the KIND Thing, Lubetzky shares the revolutionary principles that have shaped KIND’s business model and led to its success, while offering an unfiltered and intensely personal look into the mind of a pioneering social entrepreneur. Inspired by his father, who survived the Holocaust thanks to the courageous kindness of strangers, Lubetzky began his career handselling a sun-dried tomato spread made collaboratively by Arabs and Jews in the war-torn Middle East. Despite early setbacks, he never lost his faith in his vision of a “not-only-for-profit” business—one that sold great products and helped to make the world a better place. While other companies let circumstances force them into choosing between two seemingly incompatible options, people at KIND say “AND.” At its core, this idea is about challenging assumptions and false compromises. It is about not settling for less and being willing to take greater risks, often financial. It is about learning to think boundlessly and critically, and choosing what at first may be the tougher path for later, greater rewards. By using illuminating anecdotes from his own career, and celebrating some past failures through the lessons learned from them, Lubetzky outlines his core tenets for building a successful business and a thriving social enterprise. He explores the value of staying true to your brand, highlights the importance of transparency and communication in the workplace, and explains why good intentions alone won’t sell products. Engaging and inspirational, Do the KIND Thing shows how the power of AND worked wonders for one company—and could empower the next generation of social entrepreneurs to improve their bottom line and change the world. Advance praise for Do the KIND Thing “An enjoyable read . . . wise advice about matters from product development to people management.”—Financial Times “By sharing the ten tenets that helped KIND grow, Daniel Lubetzky has given entrepreneurs a road map to success that includes both passion and purpose.”—Arianna Huffington, president and editor in chief, Huffington Post Media Group “Lubetzky uses the power of kindness to build purpose into his business and his community. He’s a role model for future leaders.”—Mehmet Oz, M.D., professor of surgery, Columbia University “I’ve always been a fan of the KIND brand. This engaging and inspirational book shows how coupling a social mission with creativity can spark change and empower a generation.”—Bobbi Brown, founder and CCO, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics From the Hardcover edition.
