If you want good employees, you need to know which quality makes them good. What makes some workers show up on time, perform admirably, work enthusiastically, get along with coworkers, and make conscientious decisions? That supreme quality is honesty, and its the character equivalent of the good-worker gene. In Hire Honesty, author Bill McConnell explains how good-worker genes affect the productivity, compatibility, and profitability of your business. Then he provides details and specific methods for screening, selecting, and managing employees so they will become and remain productive and contented in their jobs. He describes the tools needed for effective interviewing and hiring and he shows employers how to use them. Employers will learn about: honesty as the foundation of exceptional job performance; good-worker genes; managed conversations; all-about-you interviews; and trust as the principle motivator for honest workers. McConnell, who spent twenty-eight years as CEO of Patusan Trading Company, a wholesaler and importer of oriental rugs, and five years as general manager of Triple Creek Ranch, named the worlds top-ranked luxury hotel in 2014, developed and implemented the techniques of Hire Honesty in settings as diverse as remote Himalayan villages and elite American resorts. Simple and practical, these methods and principles help businesses run more smoothly, cultivate happier employees, and experience rising profits.

Leaders spend their lifetime learning leadership; it is every leader's infinite responsibility. Leadership is such an abstract, personal, and situational combination of art and skill that a cookie-cutter recipe for anyone and everyone is an impossibility. However, becoming the kind of person the world desperately needs leading is certainly an attainable objective. Though not simple, the formula is found in Elements of Leaders of Character. Elements of Leaders of Character is a leader development book; but not just any kind of leader, the kind of leader who wants to make a positive difference. Elements is a detailed illustration of the most significant attributes, practices, and principles of leaders who highly value the quality of people's character-especially their own. Leaders of character are people who care about the kind of person they are because they know the impact their character has on their own lives and world. Leaders of character step up to lead because they want to make the world a better place by being a better person and leader. If you want to be a leader, or you are a leader, and you are the kind of person who genuinely values ideals like commitment, honor, morality, and respect, you will readily discover how Elements of Leaders of Character applies directly to you, your leadership, and your success in life.

"This is criticism at its best." —Carolyn Kellogg, Los Angeles Times Writing in the tradition of Susan Sontag and Elaine Scarry, Maggie Nelson has emerged as one of our foremost cultural critics with this landmark work about representations of cruelty and violence in art. From Sylvia Plath’s poetry to Francis Bacon’s paintings, from the Saw franchise to Yoko Ono’s performance art, Nelson’s nuanced exploration across the artistic landscape ultimately offers a model of how one might balance strong ethical convictions with an equally strong appreciation for work that tests the limits of taste, taboo, and permissibility.

This book is about the company culture that helped drive Arm Limited’s spectacular growth to become the world’s leading semiconductor Intellectual Property (IP) company. Its extremely power-efficient processor technology has been licensed to hundreds of semiconductor chip manufacturers and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). Arm is still largely unknown to the broader public, yet Arm’s technology is nearly ubiquitous and has been a foundational building block of the global rise of the smartphone. Arm-based microprocessors power over 95% of the world’s mobile phones. However, this book is not about technology. It’s about how a company grew from being a small start-up in Cambridge, UK with 12 people and a £1.75m cash investment to a global organization with over 5,000 employees in over 50 countries and more than $1.5bn revenue in 2016 when SoftBank acquired it for $32bn. Arm Limited was founded as Advanced RISC Machines in November 1990, a joint venture between a British computer manufacturer, Acorn Computers Limited and its much larger US competitor, Apple Computers Inc. The purpose of the new venture was to develop and proliferate the uniquely power-efficient and high-performance RISC-based microprocessor technology that had been developed several years earlier by Acorn. Using first-hand interviews with founders and the author’s knowledge, this book charts some of the key people involved in the birth of the technology and the company Advanced RISC Machines. It considers how their behaviors and decisions led to the creation of the licensing business model and the strategy that underpinned Arm’s later success. This book reveals some of the layers that help explain how the combination of culture, strategy and execution built the world’s leading semiconductor IP company. It provides insight into ten essential ingredients of Arm’s success, including the company’s unique proposition, how the early business model and strategy were formed, the creation and evolution of the winning culture, the ecosystem of shared success and how Arm stayed unified throughout a period of extraordinary growth. The purpose of the book is to help readers create a culture of inclusiveness, collaboration and innovation within their own organizations. The book provides examples from Arm’s history which should provide inspiration and guidance for making the necessary changes to enable a winning culture. Additional details of interest to history lovers include the stories behind the BBC Microcomputer prototype, the Acorn RISC Machine microprocessor development, Advanced RISC Machines’ creation, the partnership-focused licensing business model’s development, the nearly lost design-win at Nokia for their new GSM mobile, the 20+ billion selling Cortex®-M product that almost didn’t happen and the battle for smartphones and tablets with Intel.
