Packed with dozens of real-world examples and uplifting leadership portraits, Beyond the Mirage offers generations of leaders a touchstone text that paints a compelling picture of what it means to think and lead strategically, and provides proven principals and tools for escaping the operational trap of today to create the growth of tomorrow.

The art of turning uncertainty into opportunityAuthors: Steven D’Souza and Diana Renner
In order to thrive in worrying times, this fascinating book proposes we head, uncomfortably, towards the unknown, rather than away from it. By developing a unique relationship with Not Knowing we discover a new way of living, working and succeeding in our modern world.
This book re-frames the concept of Not Knowing, from being in a fearful place of weakness and ignorance, moving to something we must engage with personally. It introduces us to a new paradigm, where Not Knowing becomes an exciting opportunity, where we are no longer limited by what we already know and our habitual reactions tothings that life throws at us, so that deeper knowing can emerge, full of rich possibilities and wisdom.
