  • What Philosophy Can Teach You About Being a Better Leader

    Jules Goddard

    Product Code: CAXQY
    Paperback
    Traditional management practices, rooted in economics and psychology, have led to a focus on numbers and productivity rather than the people who make those numbers happen. This has resulted in trust in leaders and organizations being at an all-time low. What Philosophy Can Teach You About Being a Better Leader expertly counters this thinking and argues that those leaders who will win in the uncertain and complex world of work, are the ones focusing on their workforce and valuing its members as people, rather than just tools within the process. What Philosophy Can Teach You About Being a Better Leader considers the main questions plaguing today's leaders through the eyes of four of the greatest philosophers. With the help of Aristotle, Socrates, Kant and Nietzsche, as well as a whole host of other brilliant minds, they smash widely held workplace falsehoods and unveil a new model for empowerment, fulfilment and harmony at work. What Philosophy Can Teach You About Being a Better Leader is a fascinating account of how we can reconnect company, people and shareholder interests. It answers perennial leadership concerns like questions of people engagement, key performance indicators or even generational differences at work through the lens of philosophy, with its focus squarely on how to live and help others live fulfilling lives at work.

    Andy Cope

    Product Code: BZJFJ

    As 9-5 morphs into 24/7, it brings mounting pressures and new rules. Your life is full-on, relentless and exhausting and worse still, it's zipping by in a blur. It's easy to end up careering from one crisis to another, buzzed up on sugar and coffee, existing from one holiday to the next. The leader's job is to squeeze more from less, but most leaders feel they can't possibly work any harder and are sick to death with being told to work smarter. So where next? The answer is to use the multiplier effect to transform your leadership style. Good emotions spread far wider than we realise. A good leader who is inspired and inspiring will spread good feelings throughout his team. But it won't stop there. They in turn will pass good feelings on to their colleagues, clients and customers, who will pass on positive emotions in turn. The multiplier effect is the organic set of positive emotions which flow out in ripples from good leadership. This book shows how to lead well by being the secret ingredient in your team's everyday happiness - just by making them feel good and empowering them to pass it on. Leadership: The Multiplier Effect is crammed with the latest thinking on leadership, strengths, positive psychology, purpose, employee engagement, coaching, emotional intelligence and 'life', supplemented with anecdotes, pithy quotes and asides that help bring the content to life. And to save you time, the book's central message is this: Your job as a leader is NOT to inspire people. Your job as a leader is to BE INSPIRED.

  • Chutzpah

    Inbal Arieli

    Product Code: BZGPV
    Hardback
    Discover the secret behind how Israel, a tiny country with the highest concentration of start-ups per capita worldwide, is raising generations of entrepreneurs who are disrupting markets around the globe and bringing change to the world. Dubbed "Silicon Wadi," Israel ranks third in the World Economic Forum Innovation Rating. Despite its small size, it attracts more venture capital per capita than any other country on the planet. What factors have led to these remarkable achievements, and what secrets do Israeli tech entrepreneurs know that others can learn? Tech insider Inbal Arieli goes against the common belief that Israel's outstanding economic accomplishments are the byproduct of its technologically advanced military or the result of long-standing Jewish traditions of study and questioning. Rather, Arieli gives credit to the unique way Israelis are raised in a culture that supports creative thinking and risk taking. Growing up within a tribal-like community, Israelis experience childhoods purposely shaped by challenges and risks-in a culture that encourages and rewards chutzpah. This has helped Israelis develop the courage to pursue unorthodox, and often revolutionary, approaches to change and innovation and is the secret behind the country's economic success. While chutzpah has given generations of Israelis the courage to break away from conventional thinking, the Israeli concept balagan-messiness in Hebrew-is at the root of how Israelis are taught to interact with the world. Instead of following strict rules, balagan fosters ambiguity, encouraging the development of the skills necessary for dealing with the unpredictability of life and business. Living with balagan provides Israelis with the opportunity to constantly practice the soft skills defined by the World Economic Forum as the Skills for the Future, as balagan promotes creativity, problem-solving, and independence-key characteristics of successful entrepreneurs. By revealing the unique ways in which Israelis parent, educate and acculturate, Chutzpah offers invaluable insights and proven strategies for success to aspiring entrepreneurs, parents, executives, innovators, and policymakers.

Introducing Ask: the most powerful way to discover exactly what people want to buy, and how to give it to them - and in a way that makes people fall in love with you and your company.

Whether you're an aspiring Internet entrepreneur, advanced online marketer, or established business owner, this book will both inspire you and show you how to skyrocket your online income-while creating a mass of raving fans in the process-simply by asking the right questions in a surprisingly different way. 'Ryan has uncovered some enormous misunderstandings about human buying behavior and then utilized his neuroscience background to create this game-changing marketing and survey strategy. Before you finish the first third of the book, you'll be eager to jump ahead and implement his process immediately - it's that powerful!' - Annie Hyman Pratt, former CEO of The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf and CEO of IMPAQ Entrepreneur Business Execution Systems 'Ask may be the most important book written for anyone who sells products or services directly to consumers since Breakthrough Advertising was published in 1966. Like that masterpiece, Ask gives us a new paradigm for understanding human behavior at the deepest level, which gives rise to a more intelligent and profitable way to sell almost anything. Ryan Levsque will go down in history as the marketer who used his background to change the way products and services are sold online.' - Brian Kurtz, business builder of Boardroom Inc. and serial direct marketer

  • Blue Ocean Classics

    W. Chan Kim

    Product Code: BYVWB
    Hardback
    W. Chan Kim and Renee Mauborgne changed the field of strategy and the language of business forever with their path-breaking "blue ocean strategy," a new model for creating uncontested markets that unlock all new demand and growth. This book brings together three of their classic Harvard Business Review articles that upend traditional thinking for creating and capturing lasting value. In Blue Ocean Strategy, Kim and Mauborgne introduce the idea of blue oceans, previously unknown market spaces where demand is created rather than fought over, and the opportunities for profitable growth are wide and untainted. The article highlights the distinctive differences between market-competing and market-creating strategy and what it takes to create the new markets of tomorrow. Red Ocean Traps shows that managers' mental models--ingrained assumptions about the way the world works--undermine attempts to make market-creating strategic moves that unlock blue oceans. Kim and Mauborgne provide a framework that reveals the assumptions managers make in creating new markets that keep their efforts tethered to existing overcrowded industries (red oceans). In Blue Ocean Leadership, the authors address what is perhaps the greatest challenge of leadership: closing the gulf between the potential and the realized talent and energy of employees. They outline an approach to uncovering which leadership acts and activities will inspire employees, and a process for getting managers to start doing them.

    "A powerful book on an important topic. Speak Up helps us understand the subtle elements that contribute to our holding back valuable ideas and observations. Their TRUTH framework - which is as practical as it is rigorous - identifies essential elements to help individuals find their voice. " Amy Edmondson, Professor, Harvard Business School, Author, The Fearless Organization (Wiley, 2019) What you say or don't say in a conversation can have life-defining consequences on ourselves and those around us. Speak Up helps you to navigate power differences so you can speak up with confidence and enable others to find their voice in a way that will be heard. Our day-to-day conversations define how we see ourselves and how we're seen. The choices we make about what to say and who to say it to are decisive factors in whether we get promoted, or side-lined. Whether we steer clear of trouble, or find ourselves in it up to our necks. With daily scandals hitting the headlines and the continuous need to innovate to survive, creating a more honest, open, fulfilling and productive workplace has never been more pressing. Our conversational choices harness the ideas and intelligence of the people we work with, or result in that revolutionary concept never seeing the light of day. They make us feel proud or ashamed of ourselves for what we have or have not said. They cause us to flourish and feel motivated, or result in us feeling dissatisfied and resentful. Speak Up helps you to navigate power differences and speak up with confidence in a way that you will be heard. But it's no good speaking up if there isn't anyone listening so we also help you to understand how your power enables others to speak up and how it might silence them.
