New Thinking on Leadership

Ethical Leadership

A Global Perspective

Ethical Business Culture

Edited by: Hilarie Owen Professor of Leadership at University of Leeds

Andrew Leigh Founder of Maynard Leigh Associates, a leading UK development company

New Thinking on Leadership brings together the latest thinking from around the world to empower practitioners and academics to turn around what has been called 'the leadership crisis'. With new, and sometimes controversial, insights from both leading academics and pioneers in the corporate world, it provides readers with the latest global picture of where our understanding of leadership is, and where it could go if we get to grips with the issues facing leaders today.

Ethical Leadership shines a light on the role of both culture and ethics in organizations by making the issues more transparent, accessible and above all, connected. Andrew Leigh focuses on the fact that ethical culture is manifest in the actual behaviour and attitudes of all staff, rather than in policy documents. His book is full of practical strategies, case studies and action points which will help leaders to improve and manage ethical culture and climate in their organizations.

Studies have shown that a company's share price is often linked to how well governed the company is, providing board members with a strong financial incentive to maintain good corporate governance practices. Yet what may constitute good governance will vary across different countries and companies, and there is no 'one size fits all' model of corporate governance. Corporate Governance will help readers to become familiar with the principles and practice of good governance appropriate to the company, enabling them to uphold those standards that will improve corporate reputation while providing reassurance to market regulators.

Executive Finance and Strategy Ralph Tiffin Author and Senior Statutory Auditor with McLachlan+Tiffin

Many strategies are explained as actions that will achieve the desired goals or visions of the company, but in order to predict the success of your strategy it is vital to gain an understanding of how it will impact on the financial statement. Executive Finance and Strategy works on the premise that financial models can clearly demonstrate where a particular strategy might lead, enabling you to evaluate past accounts and statements in order to respond to recent company history. It also explains how company law and ethics underpin financial statements and clarifies your responsibilities as a senior manager or director. Uniquely written for those responsible for driving growth and direction of the organization, it teaches you how your decisions impact upon the financial health of the company. By using finance as a record keeper and predictor of success, Executive Finance and Strategy helps you quantify your strategy to gain support from colleagues and take the right actions to ensure sustainable growth. Key Features: • • •

Provides an overview of UK and international accounting standards and explains how different systems and standards affect revenue Examples of public accounts to aid learning in a current and practical context Helps you use finance and accounting tools as predictors of your business strategy

Masterminding the Deal Breakthroughs in M&A Strategy and Analysis Peter Clark Teaching Fellow at University College London Roger Mills Emeritus Professor of Finance and Accounting at Henley Business School Global M&A activity may have seemed to quieten in recent years, but a new megaboom is already underway - exemplified by Facebook's pursuit of Instagram in early 2012 for US1bn in cash and stock. But in an age where two-thirds of all merger deals can be said to fail (where deals fall short of the minimum required financial returns to the acquiring company), how can future success be guaranteed? And what can acquirers, and their shareholders and advisers, do to improve the chances of success?

Masterminding the Deal looks at performance in two critical areas - merger segmentation (the identification of critical characteristics and attributes separating more successful mergers from the rest) and category-specific synergy diagnosis (the differentiation of synergy benefits - expenses, revenues, tax - to ensure maximum rewards). Using this in-depth analysis, the book can therefore provide the managers and advisers of acquiring firms with concise and actionable frameworks to improve and enhance merger performance. Contents: • • • • • • • •

The next merger boom is already here Debunking the six merger fallacies that destroy value Criteria: First, get the merger valuation methodology right Merger segmentation comes of age Mergers still fail, but does it matter?
