Summary

The author of Giants of Enterprise examines the evolving role of business leaders in the 21st century—with essential lessons from today’s trailblazers.   In The Emergence of Charismatic Business Leadership, Harvard Business School Emeritus professor Richard S. Tedlow reveals how a handful of individuals have transformed modern-day leadership, making charisma essential to the role. He looks at leaders like Oprah Winfrey, Elon Musk, and Steve Jobs: three pioneers who found success by innovating their management style and using their charisma to champion their vision.   Through Tedlow’s in-depth accounts of modern business history, we see how former outsiders attain power and influence, and how charismatic leadership enables the creation of revolutionary products like the battery electric vehicle and the smart phone. But Tedlow also considers the careers of people who used their charisma to mislead, such as Jeff Skilling of Enron and Elizabeth Holmes of Theranos. In this thorough examination, Tedlow shows how charisma, when combined with genuine character, can get you far.

    This audio treasury of wisdom. Think Your  Way to Wealth captures Napoleon Hill's first encounter with Andrew Carnegie,  who revealed the money-attracting strategy that Hill later made popular in  classic books like Think and Grow Rich and The Law of Success.  In 1908, while working as a reporter for an inspirational magazine, Hill  landed an interview with industrial giant, Andrew Carnegie. Hill had just one  key question for the magnate: What is the secret to your success? Carnegie's  response electrified Hill and launched him on a lifelong mission to distill  the steps to success into a clear, definite protocol that could be used by  any motivated person.  Think Your Way to Wealth captures Carnegie's initial advice, how-to's,  practical steps, and concrete directions-all of which formed the basis for  Hill's groundbreaking books, and jump-started the field of business  motivation.

    An IT manager's  budget controls what he or she and their team are going to be able to accomplish this year. No, creating a budget may not be the most enjoyable thing that you'll be called on to do, but it just might be the most important. The challenge that a lot of IT managers have when it comes to creating a good budget is that it requires them to master a number of terms and concepts that they may have never encountered in school.
    
    What You'll Find Inside:
    WHY IT MANAGERS NEED TO CARE ABOUT FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
    AN IT MANAGER’S NEW BEST FRIEND: THE COMPANY BALANCE SHEET
    ROI: WHAT IT IS AND WHY IT MANAGERS NEED TO KNOW HOW TO USE IT
    3 FINANCIAL TERMS THAT IT MANAGERS NEED TO KNOW
    
    The good news is that you are not the first IT manager to create a budget. There is a great deal to learn from the tips that other managers can provide you with. A good guide for how you should create your budget may be provided by your company's financial statements. 
    In order to understand the company's financial situation you'll need to  master the company's balance sheet.  Additionally you'll have to understand the company's assets and its liabilities. How the company runs its day-to-day operations are closely tied to its use of working capital and so you'll need to have an understanding of this also. 
    The company will be funding new IT projects using financial leverage and so you need to understand how this financial tool works. The status of the company is closely watched by outsiders and in order to keep your team informed you are going to have to learn how to read an income statement and a cash flow statement. 
    Your company will be making an investment in your IT team and they expect it to return a profit. This means that you need to understand terms like ROI, net present value, and internal rate of return in order to understand how your performance is going to be measured. Master these financial terms and you'll be ready to create a complete budget for you and your team.
    One way to think about your IT budget is as fuel in the tank of your IT team. The more that you have, the farther you can go. Read on and find out how to fill your tank up…!
