Ideally--a leap into a much better or bigger role than the one you have now. However, as an established mid-to-senior-level executive, that change likely is not very fluid. Maybe you have already spent a few grand having your resume crafted and perfected and now you feel ready, indestructible, for any positions you may interview for. This is not enough; you need to instill 100 percent without-a-doubt confidence in a hiring manager that you are the only candidate right for the job. In The Executive Leap, Mike Sudermann is providing his insider view of the executive search, having worked with thousands of professionals in his ten-plus years of experience.

Hiring managers glance at resumes for about six seconds. Get sixty seconds. - Land your next job without settling for the national average increase in compensation. - Position yourself as the number-one must-hire--land faster and with a great role.

A violent childhood of poverty, Catholic Church hypocrisy and alienating experiences in institutions, low paid jobs and family tragedies catapulted me towards left wing political causes and a quest for social justice, placing me squarely in the middle of the social movements of the sixties and seventies. My experiences, which centered on trade union and Communist Party activism in the industrial city of Newcastle and the Hunter Valley region, are the topic of this memoir. I was born in 1942. As a young boy I recall looking out from the cliff called Giants Leap, overlooking our shack in Sandy Hollow and day-dreaming of escape to another world. Like that mythical giant, I leapt into the world with unfettered enthusiasm and in this book I record my various measures of success. My story-telling ability is partly inherited, as I have a strong dose of Irish in my blood, and partly acquired. In my lifetime I often found it necessary to spin a yarn to get me out of a sticky situation or else to occupy myself through hours of boredom when incarcerated in institutions. At Mt Penang Training School for Boys, we boys would sit around and ‘tell a movie’ as a form of entertainment. I have tried to relate the stories in this book with a humorous tone, highlighting the many ironies and hypocrisies that I see have punctuated my life. I have endeavoured to show the worldly development of a boy who suffers violence and family break-up, a juvenile who joins gangs and steals cars, a self-educated young man who eventually becomes the secretary of a large trade union organisation, who joins the Communist Party, is gaoled for inciting opposition to the Vietnam War, who as a mature adult, travels the world and works at dozens of different manual jobs, finally becoming an environmental educator. This is my intellectual journey; through blind rebellion to the embracing of left wing ideology, to the eventual rejection of rigid dogma and the growing philosophy centred on human compassion and environmental concern. My story is punctuated with twenty two songs and poems I have written along the way as well as sprinklings from my ASIO files which almost play the role of Greek chorus behind the narrative. The accelerating destruction of the Hunter Valley by coal mining giants remains my primary contemporary concern in this first serious foray into prose. While my life’s experiences have been particular, if somewhat unusual, I feel the message of the book is universal. With opportunity and education and a compassionate disposition, the world could be a better place.

Whereas previous research concentrated on articulating what global strategies look like in large multinational companies with decades of experience in operations abroad, The Leap to Globalization focuses on how globalizing is realized over time in companies that start from a narrow geographic base. Three characteristics differentiate globalizing as observed in current practice from simple international expansion. First, globalization implies a redefinition of customer value; second, globalizing is an entrepreneurial process that transforms the company; and third, speed plays an essential role in globalization.

It was an age of fascinating leaders and difficult choices, of grand ideas eloquently expressed and of epic conflicts bitterly fought. Now comes a brilliant portrait of the American Revolution, one that is compelling in its prose, fascinating in its details, and provocative in its fresh interpretations. In A Leap in the Dark, John Ferling offers a magisterial new history that surges from the first rumblings of colonial protest to the volcanic election of 1800. Ferling's swift-moving narrative teems with fascinating details. We see Benjamin Franklin trying to decide if his loyalty was to Great Britain or to America, and we meet George Washington when he was a shrewd planter-businessman who discovered personal economic advantages to American independence. We encounter those who supported the war against Great Britain in 1776, but opposed independence because it was a "leap in the dark." Following the war, we hear talk in the North of secession from the United States. The author offers a gripping account of the most dramatic events of our history, showing just how closely fought were the struggle for independence, the adoption of the Constitution, and the later battle between Federalists and Democratic-Republicans. Yet, without slowing the flow of events, he has also produced a landmark study of leadership and ideas. Here is all the erratic brilliance of Hamilton and Jefferson battling to shape the new nation, and here too is the passion and political shrewdness of revolutionaries, such as Samuel Adams and Patrick Henry, and their Loyalist counterparts, Joseph Galloway and Thomas Hutchinson. Here as well are activists who are not so well known today, men like Abraham Yates, who battled for democratic change, and Theodore Sedgwick, who fought to preserve the political and social system of the colonial past. Ferling shows that throughout this period the epic political battles often resembled today's politics and the politicians--the founders--played a political hardball attendant with enmities, selfish motivations, and bitterness. The political stakes, this book demonstrates, were extraordinary: first to secure independence, then to determine the meaning of the American Revolution. John Ferling has shown himself to be an insightful historian of our Revolution, and an unusually skillful writer. A Leap in the Dark is his masterpiece, work that provokes, enlightens, and entertains in full measure.

A Leap into the Future is a collection of speeches, essays and articles compiled during Prof. Anyang' Nyong'o's tenure in the Kenya government and soon afterwards (2002-2006). In this provocative collection, Prof. Nyong'o examines the challenges of development, analyses how pan-African and global partnerships could facilitate development, and invokes the visionary direction pointed out by prominent personalities in Kenya's political leadership to whom he pays tribute. Through the collection, the author projects his vision for socio-political and economic transformation of the Kenyan society in a bid to formulate an economic strategy capable of leap-frogging the country from the current quagmire of underdevelopment to development. Professor Anyang' Nyong'o is a renowned reformist and political scientist in Africa and is best known for his role in Kenya's "second liberation." He holds a doctorate degree in Political Science from the University of Chicago and has taught in universities in Kenya, Mexico and Ethiopia. Upon the re-introduction of multiparty politics in Kenya in 1991, he was involved in the founding of Forum for the Restoration of Democracy (FORD), which provided the premier opposition machinery in the run-up to the 1992 general elections. He was also involved in the formation of the National Rainbow Coalition (NARC), which defeated KANU, the party that had ruled Kenya for 24 years. In the subsequent NARC government, he became the Minister of Planning and National Development. Besides teaching, he is widely published in Africa and abroad. Prof. Nyong'o has also been at the frontline in championing the reform agenda in Africa, especially through the establishment of NEPAD. At the time of publication of this book, he was Secretary General of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM).

Today, China wants to engage with the outside world—while fully controlling the engagement. How will the new leaders in Beijing manage the Olympic process and the internal and external pressures for reform it creates? China’s Great Leap will illuminate China’s recent history and outline how domestic and international pressures in the context of the Olympics could achieve human rights change. Learn about key areas for human rights reform and how the Olympics could represent a possible great leap forward for the people of China and for the world.

We live in a restless world that often seems complicated or difficult to navigate with any sense of real satisfaction or peace. A myriad of influences, distractions, temptations, and responsibilities fill our lives and pull us in many directions.While most of us certainly enjoy good times, even those are measured because the foundation of stability and peace that we all crave is elusive. That missing piece of security in our own lives compromises our ability to experience a consistent joy and peace that can positively affect our entire mental outlook as well as our relationships with family and all others in our lives.This book discusses taking the greatest leap of your life to find a consistent and very real peace and joy in your life. It is a book about God's love for us as expressed through the life of Christ. It is written by a layman who wishes to convey simply and understandably the basic components of the Christian faith and the immense grace and love God has for His children.The study of theology by its very nature is complex and certainly very important. Yet it can in its depth tend to lose its focus on why Jesus Christ came to earth, thus unintentionally confusing or derailing some of us from grasping what's truly important. The author, using a number of experiences from his own life, attempts to simplify the true essence of Christianity and how it can have a powerful impact on you - once you have taken the greatest leap of your life!Richard Pugh, a native of upstate New York, worked more than 40 years in the health care field serving the last 30 years as a hospital CEO. He graduated from Ithaca College and received his MBA at the George Washington University. Mr. Pugh is married and the father of three grown children, and he is active at his local church in Woodbury, Connecticut.

The United States will enter the twenty-first century with an increasingly diverse, unequal, and divided population. Longstanding tensions persist between ethnic groups, rich and poor, and immigrants and the native-born. New sources of strain involve sexual and gender minorities, those who possess alternate family forms, and white and nonwhite immigrants, as well as the widening gulf between rich and poor Americans.A Nation Divided offers a fresh approach to these controversial issues. In this volume, leading social scientists explore the potentially explosive combination of diversity and inequality. Using the latest theory and research, the authors show how different groups become socially and economically unequal and how such patterns of "durable inequality" affect national stability. They also discuss strategies for reducing durable inequality and creating social harmony. Their contributions address the changing demography of diversity and inequality and the interplay of diversity, inequality, and community in educational institutions, the military, the family, popular culture, and religion.
