Into the mountains

On December 22nd 1972, the world discovered that sixteen of the forty-five passengers of the Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571 that crashed in the Andes seventy days earlier were still alive. Pedro Algorta has never spoken of his experience but he breaks his silence of over 40 years and gives a first-hand account of one of the most incredible stories of human survival and team spirit. Pedro delves into how he personally lived those seventy days in the cordillera, the day-to-day struggle to survive, and how with difficulty, a lot of hard work and strong team spirit the group created a survival machine in the mountains. Each one of us has our own mountain – our own story – and understanding it helps us make sense of our path in life and to see the way ahead. We are all capable of surviving our Andes.

How to Win a War

What can WWII teach us?

Is it possible to see Hitler as an efficient manager? What would today’s business schools have to say about Churchill’s management style? What was going though the minds of leaders when they took decisions that led to thousands of deaths? How did they manage the resultant stress? What strategies were adopted to win battles and campaigns?

This book is a history of WWII seen from a completely different perspective – that of the businessperson. During 1939-45, “managers” of a different kind were facing immense challenges – an unprecedented crisis, struggle for world markets, new technologies being used on a mass scale. How they coped and succeeded during this period offers unique and valuable lessons for today’s business managers and executives. In doing so, the author analyses WWII’s most famous campaigns, including Barbarossa, Stalingrad, D-Day and Pearl Harbour. Author: Ignacio Gonzalez-Posasa

Flawed but Willing

LEADING LARGE ORGANIzATIONS IN THE AGE OF CONNECTION
Author: Khurshed Dehnugara
Instability, disturbance, emergence, networks, informal learning, trial, error, adaptability, low growth, fluctuation and momentum – these are the experiences that are increasingly dominating the lives of today’s business leaders and managers. There is a growing awareness that the old industrial constructs of detailed planning, perfection and process are no longer working as effectively as we might wish in our large, established organizations.
This book is a challenge to the way we relate to each other and lead businesses in the post-industrial age; it is full of passionate stories, reflections and insights. The writing inspires the practice of alternative forms of courage, acceptance of our imperfections and new methods of contact with each other as we navigate the changing nature of the workplace.

Beyond the Mirage

There is an acute shortage of strategic leaders in established companies

More than ever, organizations need dynamic strategic leaders who can think unconventionally beyond the boundaries of the ‘core business’ and recognize nascent market signals in an era when organizations must look far afield to identify growth opportunities.

Drawing on Dr Kuhn’s ground-breaking research on strategic mindsets conducted at Columbia University, as well as his years of experience helping executives elevate their thinking and reinvent their businesses, Beyond the Mirage sheds light on the fundamental shifts in language, lens and mindset that are needed to cross the chasm from operational management to strategic leadership. 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 31 Practices

Every company has its own values and brand which it wants its customers and clients to engage with and develop loyalty to.

At the same time, research shows that 70% of customers’ brand perception is determined by their experience with the company’s employees. Moreover, 41% of customers are loyal because of good employee attitude.

This book shows how companies can translate their values and brand into the daily practices and behaviour of their employees, especially those who must deal directly with customers. Drawing its principles from psychology, sociology, philosophy, neuroscience and leadership, the 31 Practices method has been successfully adopted by large and small companies around the world, and has been responsible for significantly enhancing customer satisfaction and loyalty.

Enabling Collaboration

As we are all aware, collaboration is “the name of the game” in business and all kinds of organizations today. The world has become a complex web of interdependent actors—some are competing, while others are learning to collaborate in new and innovative ways by establishing, strategic partnerships and establishing networks of ecosystem partners to create new opportunities, bring innovative products and services to market, continuously re-invent themselves and help solve some of the world’s most difficult problems. Those that collaborate in this way are entering new stages of formation and complexity through digital reinvention, ecosystem design, multi-stakeholder programs and social innovation. Because of the complexity of the collaboration, the number of actors involved and opportunities missed if no time is spent to innovate and co-create. More importantly, collaboration requires groups to get to know each other from a psychosocial perspective to build the collective muscle to communicate clearly and authentically, learn together and cut away what is not relevant for success. Once they have developed the collaboration structure, operating principles and values, social contracts and culture, they will have also built the collaboration capability to tackle the more difficult final negotiations pieces, not to mention the fact they know what is left to negotiate. It only makes sense that all businesses combinations that require collaboration have a concordant process and method to guide their success. Enabling Collaboration – Achieving Success through Strategic Alliances and Partnerships provides practitioners interested in forming all kinds of collaborations a practical roadmap and methodology to do just that. Help create the structures, processes and opportunities that arise from collaborative approaches to organizational and societal success. Author: Martin Echavarria

Perform to win

This book explores and demonstrates the transformative learning experiences that organizations and their leaders can derive from the arts. It is through the arts that we have always explored our humanity: through dance and music; art and sculpture; theatre and poetry. The arts allow us to explore our own selves and our relationship to others and to the world around us. This central role of the arts is commonly accepted in everyday life, but the implications of this are not typically extended to the world of business.The authors argues strongly that, to the contrary, the methodologies and approaches that are fundamental to performing artists of all kinds can provide exactly the kind of inspirational, people-centred and performance-related techniques that are missing from much of the typically mechanistic, systems-based and process-driven training and development of managers and executives. Technical proficiency and expertise are not enough to deliver an award-winning result; what enables a truly outstanding performance is the elusive but entirely recognizable element of artistry – the spark that transforms a technically good performance into something extraordinary.

Dedication

In 2012, the Chinese company Huawei Technologies overtook Ericsson to become the world’s largest telecommunications equipment manufacturer, firmly establishing itself on the world business map. Today, it has over 170,000 employees worldwide and in 2014 the company generated a remarkable profit of $5.5 billion. Whilst research and development and the technology that results from it are core drivers of Huawei’s success, the company’s amazing growth is also determined by its human resource strategy. This is based on a “customer-first” attitude, the belief that obtaining opportunities is through hard work and, above all, “a dedication to do the best in anything we do”. How Huawei promotes this dedication amongst its workforce is the subject of this important book. Through original incentive systems, employee ownership and the mentality to act like a boss, Huawei has managed to create a culture of dedication that has become the bedrock of its growth today.
