In this updated edition of Dare to Serve, former Popeyes CEO Cheryl Bachelder shows that leading by serving is a rigorous and tough-minded approach that yields the best results. When she was named CEO of Popeyes in 2007, the stock price had slipped from $34 in 2002 to $13. The brand was stagnant, the team was discouraged, and the franchisees were just plain angry. Nine years later, restaurant sales were up 45 percent, restaurant profits had doubled, and the stock price was over $61. Servant leadership is sometimes derided as soft or ineffective, but this audiobook confirms that challenging people to reach a daring destination, while treating them with dignity, creates the conditions for superior performance. The second edition of this best-selling book includes Bachelder´s post-Popeyes observations and new examples of how you can switch your leadership from self to serve. Ever engaging and inspirational, Bachelder takes you firsthand through the transformation of Popeyes and shows how anyone at any level can become a Dare-to-Serve leader. 1. Language: English.

A 2017 National Independent Publisher Book Award winner and recommended reading list mention for the US Army Military Intelligence Center of Excellence Library and Museum. ´´You are the frontlines - no matter where or how you serve.´´ (Marjorie K. Eastman) It began as a personal memoir for her son. Reflecting one day on her 10 years of post-9/11 military service, Marjorie K. Eastman wanted to capture the lessons and inspiration she´d learned serving beside men and women who represent the very best of what it means to be American: dedication to a job well done, selflessness, character, and a belief that one person can make a difference. The audiobook unfolds in the intentional progression of the narrative, which focuses on Eastman´s experiences first, then on those around her as she grows as a person and leader. As she writes, Eastman identifies the people of this post-9/11 era as her Frontline Generation for today, and notes it is an untapped reservoir of leaders - now back in our communities - who have been strengthened by the unique difficulties of post-9/11 service. Eastman´s wartime journal entries further reveal frustrations, inspiration, joy, heartbreak, laughter, purpose, resolve, and the remarkable ways service members came together to solve problems and break boundaries well beyond the heartbreaking day of 9/11. She defines the legacy her Frontline Generation leaves on this country and encourages listeners to think about who they want to be, how they can make a difference, how they can make their lives count. Service is the key. The compelling journey of Eastman´s time in uniform culminates in her final assignment, when she was responsible for the lives of more than 100 troops - men and women - scattered throughout Eastern Afghanistan. Her first-person account of that time is a moving story from personal commitment to the conviction that service - no matter where or how - is the best path to success. S 1. Language: English.

Scores of books have been written by Western experts, mainly American, looking at the root causes of the conflict between Iran and the US. However, none of them have presented an inside look at this complex relationship from within the Iranian culture, society, and most importantly, the Iranian policy-making system. This gap has been the cause of misperceptions, misanalyses, and conflict, followed by the adoption of US policies that have failed to achieve their objectives. Seyed Hossein Mousavian worked for over 30 years on diplomatic efforts between Iran and the West, serving in numerous official posts, and as a confidante, colleague, and peer to many former and current high ranking Iranian officials, including now-President Hassan Rouhani and Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif. Here the former diplomat gives an insiders history of the troubled relationship between Iran and the US. His unique firsthand perspective blends memoir, analysis, and never before seen details of the many near misses in the quest for rapprochement. With so much at stake, the book concludes with a roadmap for peace that both nations so desperately need.
