Social and Human Service Assistants: Job Hunting - A Practical Manual for Job-Hunters and Career Changers: Stephen Gladwell
For the first time in paperback, international expert and consultant David Maister offers a brilliant and accessible guide to every management issue at play in professional firms. Professional firms differ from other business enterprises in two distinct ways: first, they provide highly customized services and thus cannot apply many of the management principles developed for product-based industries. Second, professional services are highly personalized, involving the skills of individuals. Such firms must therefore compete not only for clients but also for talented professionals. Drawing on more than ten years of research and consulting to these unique and creative companies, David Maister explores issues ranging from marketing and business development to multinational strategies, human resources policies to profit improvement, strategic planning to effective leadership. While these issues can be complex. Maister simplifies them by recognizing that ´´every professional service firm in the world, regardless of size, specific profession, or country of operation, has the same mission statement: outstanding service to clients, satisfying careers for its people, and financial success for its owners.´´
Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill was born on 30 November 1874. He was an heir of a noble family of the Dukes of Marlborough. His ancestor George Spencer, a member of the aristocratic Spencer family, was proud of his consanguinity with John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough, so he has decided to choose Spencer-Churchill as his surname when he took the title of Duke of Marlborough in 1817. Winston Churchill´s father, Lord Randolph Churchill was a politician and the third son of John Spencer-Churchill, 7th Duke of Marlborough. Following the example of his father, Winston preferred to be known as Churchill. His mother was also born in a respected family, being a daughter of Leonard Jerome, a millionaire from the USA. Lady Randolph Churchill, gave birth to her son in Blenheim Palace, Woodstock, Oxfordshire, two months before the expected date. When Winston was a kid, his grandfather had been appointed Viceroy, and Winston´s father, Lord Randolph, was hired as his private secretary. At that time the family had lived in Dublin and had used to stay there until Winston turned six. Dublin is also a birthplace of his younger brother John Strange Spencer-Churchill. Those years in Ireland are considered to be very important for the formation of the character of the future Prime minister because frequent parades by the Vice Regal Lodge (now the official residence of the President of Ireland) were the probable reason of his passion towards military matters. 1.
