Other People's Shoes is an illuminating exploration of leadership and management and their importance to organisations. Ken Jarrold draws on his almost 50 years of experience as a senior NHS manager, chair and member of boards, and consultant, to share a wealth of knowledge about how to manage effectively and forge a path forward, one that works for the organisation and inspires its most valuable resource: the frontline staff. Focusing on the values, personal qualities and mindset that are essential to good managers and leaders, this book clearly defines where management ends and leadership begins. Ken separates the two roles into equal but distinct categories and demonstrates how the two require different approaches and different skill sets. A list of 40 incisive questions invites you to reflect on your performance, preconceptions and expectations, leaving you with a clear idea of how to become a better manager or leader. Other People's Shoes reveals the humanity and emotional intelligence necessary to management and leadership and provides a rich source of practical tools and tips that will improve your understanding and your performance. It is essential reading for managers, leaders and anyone who aspires to be a leader.

Excerpt from In Other People's Shoes Scene. - Sitting-room of Miss Wright's Boarding School. Door at L. Window (at back) practical, if possible. Easy chair L., between door and C. Couch R. Table, on which there are books, ruler, pencils, pen, inkstand and a newspaper. Occasional chairs at suitable places about the room. Discovered Mopsie, Wopsie and Popsie, leaning out or looking through window, waving handkerchiefs, as in farewell. Mopsie (coming forward and speaking with mock sadness). A whole day and a half! What shall we do without our dear Miss Wright? (Sits) Wopsie. However shall we bear it? Popsie. Sisters, let's mingle our tears. (Flops down on Mopsie's knee and pretends to weep) Mopsie (pushing her off). Oh, for goodness' sake, don't flop on me, you great, heavy creature. Do your weeping on a chair all to yourself, or else try Wopsie's knee. Popsie (in tragic tones). Unkind minions, I'll none of either! Seriously, though, what are we going to do? How make the most of our freedom? (Stretching out her arms dramatically) Freedom, glorious freedom! Mopsie (rising and walking towards window). Oh, for the magic wand of a harlequin. By the way, was it a wand? My brother used to call it a "Smacker." So, oh, for the "something" of a harlequin to transform ourselves into - into Wopsie. Into what, you absurd thing?

During the 1980s thousands of refugees from Central America, who sought safe haven in the United States, found themselves incarcerated in immigration prisonsabused by their jailors and deprived of the most basic legal and human rights. Drawing on declassified government documents and interviews with more than 3,000 Central American refugees, Kahn portrays the chilling reality of daily life in immigration prisons and reveals how the Department of Justice and the Immigration and Naturalization Service intentionally violated federal laws and regulations to deny protection to refugees fleeing wars financed by U.S. military aid. }During the 1980s hundreds of thousands of refugees fled civil wars and death squads in Central America, seeking safe haven in the United States. Instead, thousands found themselves incarcerated in immigration prisonsabused by their jailors and deprived of the most basic legal and human rights. Drawing on declassified government documents and interviews with prison officials, INS staff, and more than 3,000 Central American refugees, Robert S. Kahn reveals how the Department of Justice and its dependent agency, the Immigration and Naturalization Service, intentionally violated federal laws and regulations to deny protection to refugees from El Salvador and Guatemala who were fleeing wars financed by U.S. military aid.Kahn portrays the chilling reality of daily life in immigration prisons in Texas, Arizona, and Louisiana. Behind the razor-topped prison walls, refugees were not simply denied political asylum; they were beaten, robbed, sexually assaulted, and sometimes tortured by prison guards. Other Peoples Blood traces the ten-year legal struggle by volunteer prison workers and attorneys to stop the abuse of refugees and to force the Justice Department to concede in court that its treatment of immigrants had violated U. S. laws and the Geneva Convention for over a decade. Yet the case of American Baptist Churches v. Thornburgh, which overturned more judicial decisions than any other case in U.S. history, is still virtually unknown in the United States, and today the debate over illegal immigration is being carried on with little awareness of the government policies that contributed so shamefully to this countrys immigration problems. }

In 1990 Perry Wood shelved his music career to breed, break in and train horses. 'All my work with horses,' he says, 'has been about exploring deeper communication, learning to understand and influence another being for the mutual benefit of both parties. As time went on I realised that more communication was happening below the surface than people normally noticed. I started to apply these observations to the people who came to me to learn, at which point it was suggested that what I was doing with the horses and people would be transformational if it was brought into corporations.' He was right, it is! 'What I bring to this work is not only my learning from years of horse whispering and people-training but also the non-judgemental spiritual essence of unconditional love that is present in everything.'In Secrets of the People Whisperer, Perry Wood shows with unique simplicity how to listen to yourself, how to listen to others and - once you've mastered these skills - how to set goals and turn your life into a stunning success story.
