Arab Management Books by Omani (Arab) Author!

 

A         Psychology of Arab Management Thinking!

B - Psychology

 trafford.com/08-0889

 Book Theme – This is a no punch spared, no barrels held, no frills and no play stuff book but to be as open, frank, sincere and honest as far as is possible – in deep soul search and self-analysis – so it can be a learning process for this generation – and for others to come in the future!

As an Omani, the Author offers great insight into his country’s management issues, but he is quick to point out that many of the observations he makes can be applied to business throughout the Arab World! While the subject matter will mainly appeal to Readers approaching it from an Arab perspective, students of international business can also learn a lot from the Author’s research – The USA Review of Books

For a long time now, I have been putting off the idea of writing this book – though it had been on my mind for a long time now. The mere idea of writing this book scared me to bits and pieces – for many valid and pertinent reasons

Arabs, work is worshipped (Islamic Religion calls on us to respect work like as if it is in praying!). We are also brought up to be polite, courteous and decent (at least a majority of us). Abrupt, ugly, rudeness and distort are discouraged. Also it is not easy to say NO – as part of the culture, customs, traditions and heritage. So what went wrong here – especially in Management circles? Why are we behind the rest of the world, despite all our riches and resources?

 I hope you will enjoy the book. I have tried to be as frank, open, forthright, honest, sincere and genuine as I can – as Readers who know me can give credence and credibility to me and will vouch and authenticate my works!

I have not spared myself, so there is just for it to be honest, sincere, genuine as I possibly can!

 The book won The USA Gold Seal of Literary Excellence 2013 in Short List of Eric Hoffer Award.

 A Cry For Help!

 A frank, honest, open and call-a-spade-a-spade no punch-spared, no barrels held stuff and no frills play book exposing the increasing lack of ethics, principles, professionalism and tolerance – plus increased radicalisation, extremism and fundamentalising of the Offices environment and in similar to the overall similar fast changing facts of the ground in the region.

Author Majid Al Suleimany exposes the increasing extremism, fundamentalism and radicalization in management styles and employees’ receptions and reaction in his new book “A Cry for Help!” – Published by Trafford USA.

With over 35 years of human resource experience in Oman and with the Gulf Cooperation Council countries, Al Suleimany digs deep into the Arab office environment. Suleimany spins “a frank, honest and open book exposing the increasing lack of ethics, principles, professionalism and tolerance in the office environment.”

“A Cry for Help!” focuses on the particular type of management that is being used in the Arab workplace while explaining the context and perspectives in the work environment. He goes on to explain what is peculiar, special, or particular to that work in the context of, and in comparison to, management styles of other nations.

He writes from a management perspective and thirty years employment in human resources and training. No punches are pulled in describing his experiences with racial prejudice in big corporation culture, both from expatriate staff and even his fellow Omani workers.

But the scope is not limited to business issues. Reasons for the economic lag in Arabic countries are also floated: “I suspect that a real problem exists in the mind of Arabs: They do not feel that they own their own countries.” Written as a possible warning and Omen, these issues seem prescient of the contemporary “Arab Springs” that followed a year later!

Addressing the increased extremism, fundamentalism, and lack of tolerance and forbearance in the Arab workforce, Author Majid Al Suleimany presents A Cry for Help!: Arabian Management Services — Context and Perspectives.

In three parts, A Cry for Help! concentrates on the management styles and aspects of companies located in the Arabian Gulf Cooperation Council that encompasses Oman, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.

It discusses the:

  •  Growing radicalization of local staff
  • Misbehaving expatriates
  • Unhappy, dissatisfied staff
  • Bad treatment of Staff especially by some Expatriates – mainly Indian, European and Western Staff on Locals
  • Increasing extremism and fundamentalism in The Offices
  • Sensitive, related issues

In A Cry for Help!, Al Suleimany, A Management Expert, focuses on what is particular about the type of Arab management, its context and perspectives, and what is peculiar, special, or particular to that work in the context and comparison to management styles of other nations. Using personal experiences, examples, and illustrations, Suleimany exposes the new reality and truth and moves away from the trend and approach of hiding issues and problems.

“It is a unique book, written in a unique style. It is a soul-searching and critical evaluation of one’s own people in the field. He extols the culture and importance of work in his religion and the pitfalls and lackluster attitude of the Managers in position about the Principles and Process of Management.”

About The Book!

Why I Wrote The Book!

Book Behind Cover Writing!

  • Do not tell me you are going to write this book! I just cannot believe it!British CEO
  • I thought after your last book – and the end of your columns – you will stop writing! You have me pleasantly surprised!Senior Omani Public Official (Retired)

This is my Third Arab Management Book after Psychology of Arab Management Thinking! And A Cry For Help! And my 12th book! Three books are on Road Safety and the balance are based on my columns and writings!

All my Arab Management books have been written after a major upheaval in my life at the work front and elsewhere involving my life! I was always under the impression that my book A Cry For Help! As was going to be my last book in Arab Management with the events that followed proving my case why ‘I needed help!’ as an Arab Manager! Though trying best to keep to myself – and trying to avoid conflict and confrontations as much as I possibly could – but people would not leave me alone! They were still after me!

I then decided to accept the challenge and write this book. Like the other books – I have tried to be as factual as possible – and with my usual style of writing of speaking to you directly from my heart – and to be as sincere, genuine, frank, forthright as possible – so that this book can not only be used in Research works – but as a Guide and Beacon for the children, grandchildren, great grandchildren – and future generations by the Grace of Allah SWT God – Ameen Amen.

It is my Final Attempt to High light a ‘Quickly Deteriorating Situation’ before malaise, stalemate and decadence sets in at The Work Front and its environment! In this book nobody has been spared – and that includes even myself too!

The Book Front Cover.

This is the Author’s 10th book – and book 6 in the Between Us Only! series. The book follows up on the success of the previous books and furthers the idea of private talks between friends on matters that many are too scared to touch! Often times delving into sensitive critical topics that aren’t always sweet, this enlightening book uses a clear and elegant prose to explore social evils in the society as well as their light hearted counterparts. Covering a variety of priceless topics, this wonderful collection of articles gives readers everywhere a glimpse into the issues that are prevalent in today’s society.

Although the book is based mainly on Oman and The GCC, many of the topics are of universal application and appeal – with the increasing lack of tolerance, radicalization and fundamentalism in society. The book also carries many family, offices and human based articles that are applicable to us all – as bottom line we are the same human being in that same a person – with the same needs, wants and fears – devoid of race, religion, creed and color! Many of the articles are highly emotive and heart rendering – and that is the reason of adopting the title of Wipe My Tears!

Majid Al Suleimany has over twenty-five years of experience as a human resources specialist and over ten years of experience as a management and human resources consultant, expert, and advisor. For the past ten years, he has written weekly columns in The Oman Daily Observer, an English daily, which has led to five  published books based off of his columns. Al Suleimany has also published two other books on Arab management – www.myown-ebooks.com and one on Road Safety Awareness – www.bethesafedriver.com

BOOK REVIEW

Another book of informative essays from an Omani newspaper columnist.

It’s customary in traditional Omani culture to respect the opinions of one’s elders, and readers of Suleimany’s (Being the Safe Driver!, 2013, etc.) latest work may see the wisdom in that perspective.

This volume of his collected columns from the Oman Daily Observer is as edifying and entertaining as his previous ones. In an increasingly connected world, it’s important to understand the views of people from all over, and readers interested in a Middle Eastern perspective will be pleased by this book. Its appeal is broad enough to accommodate those with interests in business management, religion or global politics.

The author airs his opinions on morality, religion and international relations throughout; for example, on the Arab-Israel conflict, he writes, “It is time that the Arab world now come out to fully materially and really support our Palestinian brothers and sisters who have suffered for so long.”

He repeatedly urges his readers to avoid hypocrisy in their personal lives and to value traditional family structures. He even relates his late father’s feelings on his sons’ failure to marry: “He was bitterly complaining that though we are in our own country—but we were following customs, habits and culture that were completely alien to the traditional old ways of doing things—rightly and properly!”

Avoiding immoral behavior is a theme of much of the book, as is thoughtful living. For modern Omanis, thoughtful living involves adopting Western customs selectively and retaining traditional culture where possible and desirable.

But although Suleimany values tradition highly, he evidently values compassion just as much. The author’s English is sometimes nonstandard, but his writing is consistently clear. Indeed, it’s easy to imagine that his writing reflects his speech, which lends the book the tone of an afternoon spent with a friend.

A look into one man’s life and values that’s a pleasure to read.
