It´s not news that globalization and ever-faster technological innovation have increased the pace of change exponentially. Existing change models were devised to deal with individual changes, one by one, but that´s not a luxury leaders have any more. Bill Pasmore, senior vice president at the Center for Creative Leadership and a professor at Columbia University, offers a four-part model that will allow leaders to deal with multiple changes simultaneously without drowning in the churn. First, Pasmore urges leaders to think fewer. He shows you how to ´´back away from the buffet table´´ - sort through the dizzying array of potential change efforts you could undertake and identify a few focused ´´healthy´´ choices that will most benefit your organization. Next, Pasmore says, think scarcer - be realistic about the resources you actually have at your disposal, including how many people in your organization are willing and able to lead change efforts. Then, having narrowed your choices, allocated your resources, and found your change agents, you need to think faster. Pasmore offers advice for streamlining change processes, getting buy-in throughout the organization, and increasing the pace of change. And finally, he says, think smarter: build in processes to learn from change initiatives while they´re happening and apply that learning to new and ongoing change initiatives. Change is not the problem - thinking about change in old-fashioned narrow and prescribed terms is. Recognizing it for the complex machine that it is and accurately taking stock of your resources and speed is what works. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeff Cummings.

Prosperity has transformed the world. But the story of prosperity is far from simple-or complete. These 24 lectures give you an unrivaled overview of one of the most pressing issues of our day and take you behind the headlines and into the debates to dispel some common myths about prosperity and get at deeper truths. In this stimulating, wide-ranging course, Professor Drezner shows that achieving prosperity involves more than economics. Psychology, sociology, political science, and history also come into play. By taking this broad view, he leads you to fundamental insights about how the modern world works and an understanding of the functioning of the U.S., European, Chinese, and other major economies, as well as an appreciation for the special problems faced by underdeveloped nations. These lectures introduce you to dozens of case histories that illustrate what works and doesn´t work in the drive to increase economic growth. A superb storyteller, Professor Drezner reaches back to examples such as the policy called mercantilism that trapped European powers in growth-killing trade practices from the 16th to 18th centuries. And he anchors his analysis in the present with discussions of globalization, financial bubbles, and other economic phenomena in the news.As a start on your own road to greater prosperity, educate yourself with this unparalleled explanation of the foundations of economic prosperity.

The evolution of consciousness in cultural history has brought civilization to rise and fall time and again because of a failure to make a qualium leap in evolution by affording a critical mass of people the opportunity to use their full powers in creative and meaningful work. Now globalization is taking world civilization past the peak energy level for humanity to make the qualium leap, promised this time by technology, into a rapid downhill slide, which can be seen everywhere in the news, from climate change to ecological disasters,to wars, disease epidemics, and abysmal poverty. Earth´s immune response to pollution and the wasting of resources by our present consumerist world could cause our own species´ extinction in order to save her planetary web of life, unless humanity perceives it as a teaching, a planetary initiation into her living systems. It takes willpower to kick the addiction to a way of life that is sapping our species and to escape the illusions when our culture goes against natural selection to threaten self-extinction. Volume two is based on the Jungian interpretation of the 12 steps for the initiation of a capacity the two-hemisphere brain achieved 100,000 years ago, leaping to a new qualium level of consciousness by integrating its subjective and objective cognitive modes (gnosis and science). A critical mass of humanity is already inventing and building a new self-reflective, living system that can meet the challenge of the environment to turn vision into action - though time is running short, as we can see with our own eyes in the online film Our Planet from the Air: Home. The world wars of the last century were rehearsals for the kind of economic and social organization needed to create a new Earth, no longer to destroy. The cultural integration of women can bring about this new creative balance of the world soul. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michelle Christides.

Economic issues are active in our lives every day. However, when the subject of economics comes up in conversation or on the news, we can find ourselves longing for a more sophisticated understanding of the fundamentals of economics. These thirty-six lectures will help you think about and discuss economic issues that affect you and the nation every day-interest rates, unemployment, personal investing, budget deficits, globalization, and many more-with a greater level of knowledge and sophistication. They require no special or advanced knowledge of mathematics. Instead, you´ll learn economics through intuitive explanations and in plain English. Professor Taylor´s first 18 lectures focus on ´´microeconomics,´´ or looking at economics ´´from the bottom up.´´ You´ll study the behavior of individuals, households, and firms; and how they interact in markets for goods, labor, and saving and investment. Topics in microeconomics include: supply and demand in the free market, monopolies and regulated competition, and public goods. The second eighteen lectures cover ´´macroeconomics,´´ or studying the economy ´´from the top down.´´ Here you will examine the factors that help economists evaluate the economy on a national and global scale. Among these macroeconomic issues are: common ways the government taxes and spends, the relationship between employment and inflation, and international exchange rates. Throughout, Professor Taylor helps you apply what you are learning to many of today´s most frequently discussed and misunderstood issues.
