Understanding Accounts (Essential Managers), Brookson, Stephen
5 Brookson, Stephen Understanding Accounts (Essential Managers)
U. K. Dorling Kindersley Pub 2001 0751312169 / 9780751312164 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
72 indexed pages including colour illustrations. The titles in the Essential Managers series provide accessible coverage of the key skills needed to succeed in business. They contain hints and tips, checklists, diagrams and photographs. If you find most accounting guides as complex as accounting itself, you'll love this itty-bitty guide, full of practical techniques that show you how to analyze financial statements, interpret financial data, and measure business performance. On every page, clear text and illustrations cover each aspect of accounting principles and practices, while simple checklists enable you to calculate ratios, identify creative accounting, and make sound financial decisions. And throughout, accessible charts and diagrams explore different options for financial planning and forecasting. Granted, if you're looking for specific or in-depth guidance, you may find this book too general in its approach. But if you're looking for a thumbnail guide to the basics, it'll do just fine. It's worth mentioning that the book is also part of reference publisher Dorling-Kindersley's Essential Managers series--20 itty-bitty books on business and career topics ranging from communication, leadership, and decision-making to the management of time, budgets, change, meetings, people, projects, and teams. Combining the For Dummies series' talent for breaking down a lot of information into bite-sized bits and sidebars with Dorling-Kindersley's signature, crisp graphics on a gleaming white backdrop, they don't represent the cutting edge of business thinking and they don't necessarily reflect any unique individual perspective. Instead, it's as though someone collated the best general thinking on these 20 topics and rolled them out into 72 brightly designed and easy-to-read pages, studded along the way with boxed tips, color shots of a multiracial cast of "coworkers" animatedly hashing through the workplace issues of the day, and a self-test of one's skills in the topic at hand on the last few pages of each volume. Again, they're not for anyone looking for in-depth or focused help on any of the subjects they cover, but they're perfect as a quickie general-interest reference... and let's face it, they're so cute, and look so smart in a neat little stack or row, that you'll probably want to buy a whole bunch to give to your entire department or staff.

Dragon's Tail: The Lucky Country After the China Boom (Quarterly Essay 54), Charlton, Andrew
7 Charlton, Andrew Dragon's Tail: The Lucky Country After the China Boom (Quarterly Essay 54)
U.S.A. Black Inc. 2014 1863956565 / 9781863956567 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
101 pages including b/w illustrations. In this timely Quarterly Essay, Andrew Charlton demolishes some myths about Australia's long boom. Around 2000 Australia's economy became tied to the supercharged rise of China. We had the good fortune to have exactly the resources it wanted. This was not about inspired leadership, so much as good fortune - we became the richest people in the world almost by accident. No politician can take credit for the boom; no worker can be blamed for its end. Now the moment of truth has arrived: as the boom fades, can we make our own luck? Charlton notes that unlike many successful countries, Australia has never had much in the way of a national strategy. This allows us to grasp opportunities as they arise, but leaves us leveraged to circumstance. It's why we can be both a 'banana republic' and a 'miracle economy' in the space of two decades. Today we have never been more exposed to the world. But what happens if our China luck runs out? Andrew Charlton outlines a strategy for new circumstances. Andrew Charlton is the author of Ozonomics, Fair Trade for All (written with Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz) and Quarterly Essay 44, Man-Made World. Full contents: Includes correspondence: Mary Crock, Michael Bachelard, Neil James, David Corlett, Andrew Hamilton, Paul Toohey.

When the Lord Speaks to the Heart, Courtois, Gaston
10 Courtois, Gaston When the Lord Speaks to the Heart
Canada Editions Paulines 1983 289039929X / 9782890399297 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
160 pages. All who have had the chance to meet Father Gaston Courtois at retreats, meetings, conferences, formation sessions or in the confessional, all who have found support from his impressive spirituality and humility about his works, will find in these intimate notes the ideas which the author cherished and developed with a passion which no one can resist. His writings are the reward of meaningful contemplation and reflection. In the last years of his life he frequented the chapel more often and for longer periods of time, with a notebook on his knee, praying, so to speak, with his pen to Christ, writing in his own words, "Your will be done." Father Courtois expressed often the desire for a great number of prayer leaders. He prayed often for this intention, which he often addressed to Our Lady as, "the first leader of prayer." His desire seems appealing today. Prayer groups and "schools of prayer" are springing up to guide those who wish to mature in the greatest of disciplines, the open communication between man and God. Father Gaston Courtois (1897-1970) was born in Paris. He served as an officer during World War I and was seriously wounded in action in 1917. After the war he entered the renowned Seminary of Saint Sulpice and in 1921 joined the Sons of Charity. Ordained in 1925 he served for several years as a parish priest and during that period collaborated in the foundation of the French J.O.C. (Young Christian Workers). This was the beginning of a chain of apostolic activities in which he would play a role of leadership»,directorship or editorship: in the fields of Catholic Action. Education and the administration of his own religious institute. His studies took him to the Sorbonne. and the Institut Catholique of Paris. His work was honored by the French Government, the French Academy and the University of Montreal. name in the first page.

USA DDI Press 2008 0976151448 / 9780976151449 Soft Cover Good 12mo 
255 indexed pages. The Opportunity of a Lifetime China s recent economic development has been nothing short of phenomenal. For the Western leader assigned to the Chinese mainland, the career opportunities are unsurpassed. Expatriates have the privilege of playing a pivotal role in one of the most exciting economic and cultural transformations in recent world history. The time spent leading and managing in China will prove to be one of the most challenging, dynamic, and personally rewarding assignments an expatriate could hope to imagine. Leadership Success in China: An Expatriate s Guide is written for expatriate leaders who want to jump-start their China career and quickly get up and running in their new environment. The complexities of managing a team steeped in a culture vastly different from the expatriate s own cannot be underestimated. Some tried-and-true Western business practices can be applied; others will fall flat in the face of China s cultural differences. Still other, unique practices heretofore unknown to the expatriate leader might be a better fit. Leadership Success in China: An Expatriate s Guide details what techniques and practices will work for expatriates in China and how others, such as performance management and selection, will need to be augmented for the Chinese culture. It also notes the traps and pitfalls for the expatriate to avoid. This book is a practical, must-have handbook for leaders charged with building a productive, trusting, empowered team in China that can achieve the business and strategic goals set forth by the head office. Who Should Read It Leadership Success in China: An Expatriate s Guide is written for executives, managers, and human resource professionals who are on assignment or soon will be in mainland China and those who will interact frequently with Chinese as part of their managerial role.

Australia ATF Press 2012 1921817771 / 9781921817779 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
xi + 194 pages. 'Public theology' involves the application of biblical and theological principles outside the confines of the church and assesses their implications for wider society. It examines both the theoretical structures of society (the nature of secularity, government, globalisation, pluralism and so forth) and the myriad specific issues involved in daily life (everything from sport to work-place relations to economics). Public theology is also, very importantly, a discipline that is practiced by the 'ordinary' Christian as well as the academic, and it is done in public (with all the scrutiny that entails) and in such a way that it communicates to non-Christians (although it remains a theological endeavour). In a real sense it is theology for the world, from the Word, by the people of God. The volume has a variety of contributors and includes an article on the role of public theology in Islam. Contents: Introduction. Public theology today / Brain Edgar, Paul Babie, David Wilson A. Public theology. law and justice. 1. Public theology, justice and law: a preliminary note / Benny YT Tai 2.

Ideas for the New Millennium, Ellyard, Peter
14 Ellyard, Peter Ideas for the New Millennium
Australia Melbourne Univ Pr 1999 0522848192 / 9780522848199 Reprint Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
ix + 188 pages including bibliography. Ellyard prods us to think the unthinkable. For him it's simply a matter of planetry survival. As the technological and information revolutions continue to transform our lives, the world is moving towards a planetary society. The forces of globalization are creating greater interdependence between individuals, enterprises, communities and nations, leading to a culture that Peter Ellyard calls "Planetism" - the values of the "spaceship culture" - will he argues, shape the global market-place of the early 21st century. In this volume, Ellyard offers a vision for human prosperity in the next century. About 70 per cent of the job categories, products and services of our Planetist future have yet to be invented, and great opportunities exist for innovators with a vision for this future. He argues that the world needs more "leaders" - that is, people who have the vision and energy to direct change - and fewer "managers" - that is, people who simply react to change. Ellyard describes what these transformations in society will mean for leadership and management, for education and learning, for health and wellbeing, for industrial development, for food production and agriculture, for environmental management and for intercultural relations and understanding. We can do well economically, he argues, by doing good environmentally. In urging the creation of an ecologically, economically, socially and culturally sustainable Planetist society in the twenty-first century, Ellyard intends to provide a vision not only for our own future but for that of our children, our grandchildren and the generations to come. Dr Peter Ellyard is a futurist and strategist who lives in Melbourne.

159 pages. The Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands (RAMSI), which began on July 24, 2003, has been a remarkable success, in part because of the consistency of its message, the strength of its leadership, and its uncommon support for, rather than overt control of, the Solomon Islands government and policing capability. This study reviews RAMSI operations through the lens of a broader application to current and future counterinsurgency efforts.

Australia Aurora Books 1999 1863550631 / 9781863550635 Reprint Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
119 pages. The faithful are the healing hands of Jesus ... but when it comes to their being part of the body of Christ in making decisions ..., they are outsiders.' A Love That Dares to Question will be read, pondered and discussed for a long time to come. Bishop John Heaps (1927-2004) loved the Church and here probes the sensitive areas that make the Church of Rome seem to some unjust or irrelevant in the modern world. While querying the tone of many official directives and the apparent lack of trust in lay women and men, he pleads for a climate of Scripture-based compassion, practical pastoral care and common sense in facing such issues as: the shortage of priests; legislation on marriage, family life, celibacy and the role of women; the increasing unavailiability of Mass; silencing of the concerns of the faithful; serious divisions within the Church; resistance to a more responsible role for the laity in decision-making; and a more participative leadership style at every level.

Australia Sydney University Press 1972 0424063808 / 9780424063805 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 16mo 
118 indexed pages. Since World War ll Australia has played an increasing role in the education of Asian students, particularly those from Southeast Asia. More than 10,000 are in educational institutions at all levels and great emphasis is placed .on the importance of this aspect of government foreign policy in the overall picture of aid to developing countries. But what is being achieved? Obviously it is relevant to discover whether the time and money spent is being wasted or not, and whether all these young Asian returnees have any real opportunity to influence the changing patterns of their homeland. This book explores the influence that graduates, particularly from Australia, are exerting on the economic growth of three very different areas: the sophisticated, commercial city of Singapore; Malaysia with its industrializing towns and rural hinterland; and Sarawak, Sabah, and Brunei which are in the early stages of development. It looks also at the impact of the returnees in terms of their cultural background, traditional roles, opportunities for leadership, and abilities and inclinations, It makes some critical comments on the future of this form of cross-cultural training and the role which the industrialized nations must play if future educational aid to underdeveloped countries is to live up to the claims of the donors.

Australia Melbourne University Pr 2010 0522858333 / 9780522858334 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
250 indexed pages. The 2010 federal election campaign had more twists, conspiracies and betrayals than a ripping political thriller. Confessions of a Faceless Man is the day-by-day account of the campaign by one of Labor's 'faceless men'. Paul Howes, head of the Australian Workers' Union, was accused of assassinating Kevin Rudd and installing Gillard in the top job - the King is dead; long live the Queen. Howes writes openly about his role in the leadership coup and reveals his experience inside Labor's campaign. In an unashamedly partisan and amusing account, Confessions of a Faceless Man chronicles the highs and lows, the stuff-ups, the leaks and the nuts and bolts of a modern Labor election campaign. This is Howes' first book - an unvarnished, brutally honest, at times laugh-out-loud account of how Labor won 2010. Paul Howes is the National Secretary of the Australian Workers' Union and the Vice President of the Australian Council of Trade Unions. He is also a member of the National Executive of the Australian Labor Party and a member of the Executive Committee of the International Metalworkers' Federation representing the Asia-Pacific region. There is a name in the inside front cover.
