Better Green Business
Author : Eric G. Olson
Better Green Business brings together the practical insights and strategic 'guides' for any company in achieving the higher level by increasing the environmental concern. In this book, Dr. Eric G. Olson shows systematically the advantage of the 'win-win-win' concept against company's revenue through customer centric orientation and improving the environment at the same time.
Olson introduces powerful methodology of business process transformation and technology for increasing operational efficiency and reducing waste, including 'green impact' approach from large corporation such as IBM. He also identifies new opportunities to drive corporate-value by 'instrumenting this planet' and introduces technology to achieve it. Finally, he assesses the long-term trends that will make "green businesses" increasingly crucial in the coming years.
Starting from big concepts such as ‘blue-sky', global-compact, green-office, or green-banking to the implementation of 'clear-desk', 'smart-desk', or 'smart-office' as part of the EHS (Environment Health Safety) concept in the workplace is another form of green-business trends which are applicative and can be done.

Author: Marshal J. cook
"Workplace Cooperation" is the exact phrase that sums up the message from the beginning of this book. Workers should be able to self-empower themselves and become more independent to work smart rather than work hard. Employee engagement to their jobs can no longer be imposed through pressure from management. In the modern workplace, managers are discovering that they must work in partnership with their employees, providing them with tools they need for success by first determining and delivering those tools through discussion unit, coffee-morning, short-session or coaching-clinic.
Manager as Coach provides guidelines, best practices, and state-of-the-art approaches to boost their employee’s motivation. The book also focuses on 24 innovative and proven approaches to increase working capacity and best performance of the employee if the managers also provide examples and best guidance with full mutual-respect. When the employees do well, it means the 'coach' has honed and treated them well.
