From Worst to First: Behind the Scenes of Continental's Remarkable Comeback, Bethune, Gordon; Huler, Scott
5 From Worst to First: Behind the Scenes of Continental's Remarkable Comeback Bethune, Gordon; Huler, Scott
0471248355 / 9780471248354 Good. 
Hardcover. 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket, published 1998 by John Wiley and Sons. Average wear to jacket: light edge-crumpling. Very clean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight. 294 pages; Index. Language: English. 'When Gordon Bethune took the captain's seat of Continental Airlines, in 1994, it was a company coming apart at the seams. Running at a loss of nearly $55 million a month, and unable to pay its bills, Continental was on the verge of filing for bankruptcy for the third time in a decade. In terms of quality, Continental was rated worst across the board and by a wide margin among the nation's top ten airlines. Not surprisingly, employee morale was also at rock bottom. Underpaid and embittered over having to take the rap for ineffective revolving-door management, many of the rank and file actually ripped the company logos off their uniforms. Yet, within months of assuming control of Continental, Bethune and his new team managed to pull the company out of its tailspin and set it on the path to recordbreaking profits and performance. . . . [B]usiness legend Gordon Bethune tells the complete inside story of how he and his team engineered one of the most dramatic comebacks in the history of business. As inspiring as it is instructive, it is the story of how a plain-speaking ex-Navy aircraft mechanic, armed with a few commonsense notions about good management and the courage to look past the bottom line, managed to motivate his people to bold new heights of excellence and win back his company's long-lost customer base. In reading it, business readers will learn valuable lessons on leadership, employee empowerment, teamwork, and strategy that can be applied to just about any type of business organization. No matter what business you're in, you'll find out how to use Bethune's strategies, techniques, and ideas to take your company to the top.'-- from jacket flap.

Going for Broke is a history of one of America's great automobile concerns, from the heady days of Walter Chrysler through the postwar economic boom to the grim present, where the company's future rests on an uneasy coalition of businessmen, labor leaders, bankers and legislators.'--from jacket flap.

7 Going to the Top: A Road Map for Success from America's Leading Women Gallagher, Carol; Golant, Susan K.
Very Good. 
Hardcover. Stated 1st edition HARDCOVER with dustjacket 2001 Viking. Superclean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight. Only light wear. 308pp, Index. Language: English. '[C]onsultant Gallagher supplies true-life experiences of 200 women from Fortune 1000 companies, such as American Airlines, American Express, Dow Jones and Wells Fargo Bank. She describes the factors that were critical to her subjects' success and offers practical and strategic advice for other high potential women, along with many brief stories and comments from interviewees. Among other points, Gallagher encourages the reader to take responsibility for profits and losses and to form alliances instead of networking. Gallagher also offers some tools for self-assessment and ideas for developing what she calls the CORE qualities: competence (the sum of experience, skills, talent); outcomes (the ability to demonstrate results); relationship management, within the company and with customers, suppliers and the community; and endurance. Gallagher's interviewees come off as smart, tenacious and extremely self-aware; many corporate women will welcome their rarefied perspective and solid advice.'--Publishers Weekly, 2000.

Like New. 
Hardcover. Brand-new hardcover with dustjacket, stated 1st printing 1998 Perseus Books. Superclean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight; never read. Only light shelfwear to jacket. Gift-giving condition. 205pp, Index. Language: English. 'In this sequel to their first book, The Customer Comes Second , the authors present the ongoing metamorphosis of their company, Rosenbluth Travel, while surveying other innovative companies identified in Robert Levening and Milton Moskowitz's The 100 Best Companies To Work for in America. The result is an internal examination of corporate culture that challenges the notion that corporations must be heartlessly competitive to succeed. The authors explain how Rosenbluth Travel reinvented itself based on an agrarian model, and though their discussion recalls work already done by Stephen Covey (e.g., The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People), this book is valuable in admitting to the warts, wrinkles, and scars that can arise with the effort to institute change.'--Steven Silkunas, Library Journal, 1998.

Jamming: The Art and Discipline of Business Creativity, Kao, John
13 Jamming: The Art and Discipline of Business Creativity Kao, John
New. 
Hardcover. Brand-new hardcover with dustjacket; stated 1st edition 1996 HarperCollins. Superclean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight; never read. Gift-giving condition. 204pp, Index. Language: English. 'It took a Chinese American student listening to jazz and jamming with a group of African Americans at a private boarding school to internalize the polar tensions between musical score and improvisation and come up with a formula for creativity. Kao, now a professor at Harvard Business School, has been using the jamming metaphor to teach creative entrepreneurship for 14 years. In business, the score i_ not a musical theme but an idea, process or question that takes on new dimensions when bandied about by a group. This business version of jamming, Kao says, is the creative advantage that can give a company a competitive edge. Kao tells how to audit and manage creativity and describes techniques for clearing the mind to render it receptive to the improvisational flow. Never was the need or the opportunity so great, he claims, as now amid the deluge of information descending from cyberspace. Chapters end with a list of riffs, or pithy tips for business leaders. Kao offers succinct advice cleverly packaged.'--Publishers Weekly, 1996.
