Though Henry M. Robert's Rules of Order is, in essence, a detailed reference manual on the rules of Parliamentary procedure, to relegate this work to the realm of encyclopedias or other books used primarily for consultation would be a mistake. While Robert does indeed provide the black and white necessary for organization and meeting structure, Rules of Order provides insight not only into formalized public or legal meetings but also into strategies for dealing with people across professions. Do not be dissuaded by the formal approach taken in Rules of Order when considering personal applications; after all, you have to know the Rules before you can break them.

The classic guide to meeting procedure—updated to meet the needs of today’s organizations For more than 60 years, American Institute of Parliamentarians Standard Code of Parliamentary Procedure (formerly, the Sturgis Standard Code) has been helping meeting organizers and participants ensure fairness and justice on a consistent basis. This updated edition provides important new motions and protocols pertaining to electronic meetings, discipline, and finance and audit committees. “The Standard Code lays out the rules in a clear, concise, and readable format for all to use.” —former U.S. Senator Don Nickles “Meeting rules can be abstruse, even to the point of frustration to the average member in an organization. The Standard Code promises to keep the rules simple and understandable—and has delivered on its promise for more than sixty years.” —Robert Dove, Parliamentarian Emeritus of the United States Senate “Takes uncommon terminology and puts it in everyday terms for more clarity in meetings. The Standard Code is an important addition to any parliamentary library.” —Ronald R. Stinson, NAP President 2009-2011 “The meeting-attendee who picks this book up will not only become proficient in the use of the meeting rules, but will also learn the important democratic principles behind the rules.” —Congressman Mike Simpson (Idaho) “Comprehensive and easily understandable.” —Perry Opin, D.D.S., M.Sc.D., Speaker of the House of Delegates of the Connecticut State Dental Association
Compassionate leadership is the legacy of those special individuals who were called upon to transform their communities and to bring hope, enlightenment, and justice to places where despair, confusion, and exploitation became entrenched. Prophets and leaders with prophetic vision provided throughout history the example of compassionate leadership where character, competence, and compassion were combined. Leading with Compassion draws on the prophetic tradition to outline the type of leadership capable of inspiring communities, empowering their members, and developing traditions that encourage cooperation and mutual support and help. While examples and lessons are drawn from the prophetic tradition and the American Muslim community settings, the book endeavors to develop a model of leadership that transcends specific religious practices and geographical communities. It attempts to outline a leadership model uniquely suited for leading community based organizations, and for transforming practices and conditions so as to make them more inspiring and nurturing. So while the primary beneficiaries of the book are North American Muslims, all those whose main concern is to empower their communities and uplift its spirit and standards can potentially benefit of this work.
