It is well known that in their professional lives most academics and researchers will - like cats - seek to exercise as much independence as possible. In Herding Cats, Geoff Garrett and Graeme Davies combine their top-level experience of leading/managing international academic and research institutions with wisdom gleaned from 50 senior colleagues around the world. They deal with common leadership and management themes, like making tough strategic choices, leading change effectively, dealing with bureaucracy, allocating resources, managing budgets and ensuring effective implementation. Garrett, Davies and their friends paint a picture of the culture of a typical 'cats' environment - replete with remarkable intellects, passion, arguments, politics and prejudice, and where trying to push people to a destination is usually doomed to failure. Herding Cats guides leaders and aspiring leaders in academic and research institutions through the process of learning to accept and embrace the qualities of their 'cats' so they can tempt them to an outcome with agility and success. "Herding Cats is brilliant... a 'must read' for all academic and research leaders... The book is full of extraordinary insights... it should not be read once, but again and again, since the strategic guidance it provides is so invaluable." Dr Ramesh Mashelkar, FRS, formerly Director General, Council of Scientific & Industrial Research, CSIR, India, and presently President of the Global Research Alliance "Not only did I enjoy Herding Cats - I laughed out loud at how true it is. Cats indeed. I also enjoyed the novel format: succinct, engaging, and easy to comprehend. Great job." Dr Curtis Carlson, Chief Executive, SRI International, Menlo Park, USA "This short book is lively, good fun but full of wisdom, eminently readable, great common sense and filled with really good quotes... a useful roadmap for any leader embarking on this tough enterprise." Sir Gustav Nossal, FRS, The University of Melbourne, Australia

Toddlers are messy. Toddlers are moody. Toddlers have opinions and demands and emotions that flip from happy to hysterical in an instant. Essentially...toddlers are cats. And parenting them? Well, parenting toddlers is nonstop cat herding. 'Herding Cats' is an up-close, real-life look at the world of a toddler parent. A world of tantrums and potty training. A world of never-ending snot. A world of hilariously inappropriate comments, limitless growth, and perfectly timed "I love you's". From the author of 'Partly Sunny: An Honest and Humorous Look at the First Weeks of Bringing Home a Newborn' comes her toddler-filled follow-up. In this memoir bursting with laughter, commiseration, and encouragement, 'Herding Cats' empowers its readers to laugh off the toddler nonsense and find beauty in the midst of wrangling the most feral of felines.

More "hi-octane hi-jinx" from the author of Big Spender and Stickleback. In a small town in the south west of England, rivals of a large business are being brutally dealt with one by one. Enter Tim Power, hotshot advertiser, whose girlfriend has placed him on a strict 12-month relationship test. Caught in a commercial war between two low-grade meat producers, Tim discovers that bad advertising can be every bit as effective as good advertising, provided you don't mind upsetting violent psychopaths with dubious family histories. Worse than this, Tim finds to his cost that failing in a relationship can be even more harmful to your health than accidentally offending tyrants with a passion for meat grinding.

One of the top marketing challenges that marketing managers and executives face today is to better understand social media and its promise as a marketing platform. The social media ecosystem, including traditional platforms such as Facebook and Twitter and upstarts such as Instagram and Snapchat, have evolved significantly over the past 10 years; so much so that keeping pace with the latest social media platforms can seem like herding cats. Inside, the authors provide a timeless perspective on how to create, manage, and measure social media content to help you craft a more strategic approach to your social media efforts. They simplify the concept of branding and advertising (fueled by social media) so you can focus on fostering customer engagement; craft your organization’s unique story; tell that story strategically via social media channels; organize, manage, monitor, and measure those efforts; identify key metrics and measure the performance through analytics; and understand the extent of change brought on by digital and social media related to how you engage your customers.

In 1985 Mike Brearley published The Art of Captaincy, revealing how he steered Middlesex and England to victory with his team of first-class cricketers. He got the absolute best out of his players, inspiring Ian Botham to new heights against the Australians in 1981. Few cricketers have had a greater impact on the amateur game than these two. Every captain would love Brearley's degree in people, as well as a hardhitting all-rounder like Botham. But theirs was a barely recognisable game from the one we play on often dishevelled grounds up and down the country with ragtag teams of ageing, deluded or hungover friends and acquaintances. Now, Charlie Campbell offers us a New Testament to Brearley's Old Testament, as he guides us through the realities of captaining an amateur team. Herding Cats picks its way through the minefield of an amateur's season: from the excitement and hope of pre-season nets, to the desperate scramble to gather 11 players for a frosty game on a far-flung, desolate pitch; from decoding the casual phrase 'I bat a bit', to setting a field of players who can't catch or throw; from handling the most delicate egos, to dealing with a case of the yips; from frequent moments of despair, to sudden and joyful glimpses of unexpected glory. For all those of us who recognise ourselves, our teammates, our friends and partners in the shambling joy of amateur cricket more than in the top-class international game, Campbell lights a path through a weekend world of play at the beating heart of the world's second most popular sport.

This book is a collection of five 'catty' Short stories with eight illustrations. Sometimes in these stories the cats are anthropomorphic, in others they are...well, just cats. The stories range from about 780 to 1700 words in length. The illustrations are the sole work of the author with the exception of the one within the Short story 'Sibling Rivalry.' A special friend, Anne Turnbull, has kindly allowed me to use this picture. Any mistakes the reader discovers are, of course, the responsibility of the cats, who helped to edit the manuscript.

Cats of course, won't be herded. And the most successful organizations in the 21st Century won't be managed -- they'll be led. The answer to America's current leadership crisis is leaders (not managers) who recognize that "the only capital that really counts is human capital" And whether readers are looking for a leader or looking to be a better one, Warren knows what it takes. In answer to the leadership crisis, Bennis offers insight into developing leaders and their competencies, by explaining ten traits of dynamic leaders, and how these leaders constantly reinvent themselves. The 21st century will require leaders who can inspire and orchestrate change rather than impose it or simply react to it. The section on "Leading Change" will, in itself, make this a must-have book.
