The Creative Society

HOW THE FUTURE CAN BE WON

Author: Lars Tvede

Human creativity has been one of the fundamental drivers of civilization and progress – solving immense problems, creating opportunities and overcoming enemies like no other force. Often it has baffled its skeptics by finding new and better resources, unexpected environmental technologies and genuinely amazing products that no one had predicted.

However, like so many before it, Western civilization is now suffering from serious internal decay with its bloated public sectors, punitive taxes, over-regulation, marginalized citizens, stagnation, debt, unemployment and pessimism.

Not Knowing

The art of turning uncertainty into opportunity

Authors: 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.

Masters of Innvovation

Building the Perpetually Innovative Company

Authors: Kai Engel, Violetka Dirlea, Stephen Dyer and Jochen Graff.

Masters of Innovation is the manual for creating a sustainable innovative organization – because innovation is not an art. It’s a capability. The past 15 years have brought a flood of how-to books about innovation, most of them stuffed with stories of startling eureka moments and charismatic leaders. These stories have little to teach business leaders their own innovation capability. But Masters of Innovation clearly and concisely explains how managers make innovation more than just a ‘breakthrough moment’.

This book offers the real experience of the world’s best Innovators. These are not just the hot ‘tech’ companies of the moment, but companies growing in traditional sectors—automotive, train travel, household appliances—where slow growth would be expected. Many have been in business for generations, and still they grow. Being innovative is a repeatable process that can be studied and learned, one that will sustain a company’s profitable growth for decades.

It´s the people

WHAT DOES IT REALLY TAKE TO SUCCEED AND PERFORM AS A BUSINESS MANAGER AND LEADER?

Authors: John A. Dembitz
Jack  Welch,  the  legendary  CEO  of  General  Electric,  described  himself  as  “the  world’s  best  paid  human resource  director”.  Welch  and  other  leaders  of  extraordinary  successful  companies over  the  past  30  years  focused  on  one   particular  part  of their  business: the  people.
 
Unlike  other  assets,  people  have  legs  that  enable  them  to  walk,  they  go  home  at  night,  they  have brains  that  enable   independent  thought,  senses  to  make  them  aware,  and  have  intangible  feeling s.  But  the  way  that  they  are  managed   impacts  directly  on  the  business’  bottom  line  like  no  other  asset  category.  This  book  is  a  firm  reminder  of  the  value  of   people  to any  organisation.  Great  managers  and  leaders,  at  whatever  level,  are  ones  capable  of  driving  performance   and  change  through  people.  This book  provides  essential  actions  and  behaviours  to  pursue  (and  those  to  avoid)  for  any   manager  who  is  seeking  the  path  to  great management  and  leadeship.

New! My Steam Engine Is Broken Quick View

My Steam Engine is Broken

Taking the organization from the industrial era to the age of ideas

Authors: Dr Mark Powell and Jonathan Gifford My Steam Engine is Broken calls on a fresh generation of organizational leaders to stop trying to fix a broken and outmoded structure, and to create new, successful working structures that work with, not against, people’s natural modes of behaviour. The authors explore the way in which the Steam Engine organizational model is no longer offering job satisfaction to its members precisely (and paradoxically) because members are not being enabled, and are often being prevented, from delivering what the organization most needs from them: self-direction, innovation, leadership and heartfelt commitment.
