Don't we try and run from failure all our lives? But, 'spontaneous doing has to go through failures.' Acknowledging failure is singularly the most difficult thing to do. It takes tremendous courage to come out and say, yes, I failed. Shweta Punj chronicles sixteen such leaders who have celebrated their failure as much as their success. Each story is an anatomy of failure. So whether it was the difference between 'need' and 'want' that led Abhinav Bindra to miss that winning shot, or whether it was a suicide attempt that pushed Sabyasachi Mukherjee into fully realizing his potential--these stories will prod you to look at failure differently.

Free Shipping Delivered in 4 working days Overview: Calculating Success: How the New Workplace Analytics Will Revitalise Your Organization This title helps us in using analytics to make more effective talent management decisions. Most managers understand that employees can make or break a company's strategy. You can have the best ideas and the most promising plan, but if you don't have the right people to carry it out, that plan will fail. Still, despite having this critical knowledge, most companies don't have a datadriven approach to the decisions they make about talent. In fact, a recent IBM study that interviewed over 400 senior HR executives showed that only 6 per cent of companies believe they can effectively use human capital data to make strategic workforce decisions. Enter "Calculating Success", the forthcoming book by human capital experts Carl Hoffmann, Eric Lesser, and Tim Ringo. Based on decades of experience creating human capital systems at IBM, the authors show how using analytics can dramatically improve a company's ability to make better and faster talent decisions.

Free Shipping Delivered in 4 working days Overview: The Workforce Scorecard: Managing Human Capital to Execute Strategy In a marketplace fueled by intangible assets, anything less than optimal workforce success can threaten a firm's survival. Yet in most organizations, employee performance is both poorly managed and underutilized. The "Workforce Scorecard" argues that current management and human resource practices hinder employees' ability to contribute to strategic goals. To maximize the power of their workforce, organizations must meet three challenges: view their workforce in terms of contribution rather than cost; replace benchmarking metrics with measures that differentiate levels of strategic impact; and make line managers and HR professionals jointly responsible for executing workforce initiatives.Building on the proven model outlined in their bestselling book "The HR Scorecard", Mark Huselid, Brian Becker, and coauthor Richard Beatty show how to create a "Workforce Scorecard" that identifies and measures the behaviors, competencies, mind-set, and culture required for workforce success and reveals...Read more About the author: Mark A Huselid,Brian E.
