    Stewart Barnes, Steve Kempster, Sue Smith

A cycle of leadership learning through ‘lived experience’ is outlined and the importance of leadership learning within a community of practice and developing concurrently three key capitals - human, social and institutional capitals - are emphasised.

  15. Theoretical Perspectives on Family Businesses

    Theoretical Perspectives on Family Businesses

    Edited by Mattias Nordqvist, Leif Melin, Mattias Waldkirch, Gershon Kumeto
    Family business has become an increasingly studied field over the last decade and forms one of the fastest growing research areas today. The uniqueness of family businesses is the interaction between two systems; the family and the business systems, leading to specific characteristics that we rarely see in other types of businesses. In order to understand the interaction between the family and the business systems, researchers have adopted a diverse range of theories from different fields. The contributors provide a thorough discussion of thirteen theoretical perspectives that have been used in family business research to a varying degree. Each chapter introduces a theory, demonstrates its previous application in family business research and offers compelling ideas for future research that could contribute to both the family business field and the original theory behind it. This book aims to spark new insights for researchers and PhD students in the field of family business, and is also a good introduction for researchers who are new to the field. Learn More

  16. The Multi-generational and Aging Workforce

    The Multi-generational and Aging Workforce

    Edited by Ronald J. Burke, Cary Cooper, Alexander-Stamatios G. Antoniou
    The workforce is aging as people live longer and healthier lives, and mandatory retirement has become a relic of the past. Though workforces have always contained both younger and older employees the age range today has expanded, and the generational gap has become more distinct. This book advocates the need for talented employees of all ages as a way to prevent potential skill shortages and considers both the challenges and opportunities that these changes raise for individual organizations. The benefits they discuss include greater employee diversity with regards to knowledge, skills experience and perspectives, whilst challenges involve potential generational tensions, stereotypes and age biases. The book further places an emphasis on initiatives to create generation-friendly workplaces; these involve fostering lifelong learning, tackling age stereotypes and biases, employing reverse mentoring where younger employees mentor older employees, and offering older individuals career options including phased retirement, bridge employment and encore careers.

  19. The Economic Crisis and Occupational Stress

    The Economic Crisis and Occupational Stress

    Ritsa Fotinatos-Ventouratos, Cary Cooper
    The global economic crisis of 2008 caused the collapse of the world’s financial institutions, large-scale unemployment, the devaluing of housing stocks leading to mortgage defaults and left many countries in debt, unable to meet their financial obligations.

An insightful and thorough account of how the economic crisis has unfolded on an international scale is presented and the profound psychological impact that this recession has had on the workplace assessed.
