Download and read online Effective Leadership in PDF and EPUB LEADERSHIP cannot be taught, but one can be taught about leadership. There are many sources from which one can learn. One of those sources is animals. We can learn many lessons from the animals. And one aspect that is rich with examples is LEADERSHIP. Human leadership is about getting people to do what you want them to do, even when they might want to do otherwise. It is about encouraging, convincing, exhorting, and motivating. Animals are remarkably adept at achieving this amongst their own kind. Animals demonstrate very clearly the central message that leadership is a process. It is not a set of characteristics, it is not charisma, it is not a position, it is not a role. It is a process-a process involving people. It is about those who lead and those who are led. It is about those who challenge and those who accept. Animals provide many and varied lessons in leadership. They exhibit understanding, collaboration, and sensitivities that human leaders could well emulate. Read about some of these lessons in this fascinating book. ASHLEY GOLDSWORTHY is in a unique position to write a book on Leadership. In a career spanning over 55 years he has been CEO of Australia's largest construction company; a retail bank; the Australian Computer Society; deputy to the CEO of a large insurance company; chairman of an international construction company; Director of Economic Statistics for the Australian Government; Dean of the Business School at Australia's first private university; one of Australia's first Professors of Leadership; Federal President of the Liberal Party of Australia; World President of the International Federation for Information Processing; director of one of Australia's largest casinos; founding chairman of a university Centre for International Research on Communication and Information Technologies; chairman/director of performing arts companies in ballet, theatre and circus; chairman of several companies ranging across human resources, accounting, financial services, healthcare, computer systems, and vocational education and training. He has degrees in accounting, business, public administration, science, and theology.

Download and read online Determinants of Animal Behaviour in PDF and EPUB Are animals intelligent? How do they learn to solve everyday survival problems? Can they be intentionally deceptive? The investigation of animal behaviour is an important and fascinating aspect of comparative psychology. Determinants of Animal Behaviour thoroughly covers the section on determinants of animal behaviour in the AQA (A) comparative psychology module and deals with the three main topics featured in the syllabus. Firstly the evolutionary explanations of animal behaviour are discussed, including the biological explanations of apparent altruism. Secondly the nature of classical and operant conditioning in animal behaviour is considered and finally the role of social learning in animals is investigated. Real life examples are used throughout the book to illustrate the arguments presented. Determinants of Animal Behaviour is an ideal introductory text to the subject, full of real life examples and both traditional and cutting-edge research. It will be of interest to all students new to comparative psychology and highly accessible to anyone wishing to know more about the diversity and ingenuity of animal behaviour.

They encourage exploration. Both new-to-Florida and long-time residents will enjoy this book."--Cris Costello, Regional Organizer for the Sierra Club Did you know fawns have no scent, an evolutionary defense against predators? And that the eastern grey squirrel is a formidable swimmer, which makes them quite suited for the Sunshine State? And that, unlike other avians, Florida scrub jay families stay together for years, with older siblings helping to feed younger siblings? Florida Animals for Everyday Naturalists contains everything you want to know about Florida's furry, feathered, scaled, and shelled friends. With lively personal essays and stunning photographs, Larry Allan introduces you to the array of wildlife you might encounter in your backyard, at the park, or on a jaunt at one of the state's many wildlife refuges. Each chapter is dedicated to a specific animal, like the bobcat, the river otter, and the caracara, and paired with vivid photos to help you identify these creatures in the wild. Allan's fascination with Florida fauna is contagious, and his reverence of nature is unmistakable. While sharing his whimsical, enlightening, and instructive anecdotes, he gently argues for wildlife preservation in Florida and for responsible human-animal interactions. Perfect for young naturalists, inquisitive trekkers through the Sunshine State, or armchair adventurers, this book will help you appreciate the abundance of life right outside your door.

Download and read online Animal Learning and Cognition 3rd Edition in PDF and EPUB Animal Learning and Cognition: An Introduction provides an up-to-date review of the principal findings from more than a century of research into animal intelligence. This new edition has been expanded to take account of the many exciting developments that have occurred over the last ten years. The book opens with a historical survey of the methods that have been used to study animal intelligence, and follows by summarizing the contribution made by learning processes to intelligent behavior. Topics include Pavlovian and instrumental conditioning, discrimination learning, and categorization. The remainder of the book focuses on animal cognition and covers such topics as memory, navigation, social learning, language and communication, and knowledge representation. Expanded areas include extinction (to which an entire chapter is now devoted), navigation in insects, episodic memory in birds, imitation in birds and primates, and the debate about whether primates are aware of mental states in themselves and others. Issues raised throughout the book are reviewed in a concluding chapter that examines how intelligence is distributed throughout the animal kingdom. The broad spectrum of topics covered in this book ensures that it will be of interest to students of psychology, biology, zoology, and neuroscience. Since very little background knowledge is required, the book will be of equal value to anyone simply interested in either animal intelligence, or the animal origins of human intelligence. This textbook is accompanied by online instructor resources which are free of charge to departments who adopt this book as their text. They include chapter-by-chapter lecture slides, an interactive chapter-by-chapter multiple-choice question test bank, and multiple-choice questions in paper and pen format.
