9 principles and practices to create a wide-awake and productive workplaceAuthor:Â Shelley Reciniello As the author says: â€śI have spent a lifetime studying the psychology of people and work, marvelling at how much trouble we can get into when we donâ€™t understand ourselves and what makes other people tick.â€ť The Conscious Leader brings you the nine principles and practices needed to create a wide-awake and productive workplace.
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 customersâ€™ brand perception is determined by their experience with the companyâ€™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.

What can WWII teach us?
Is it possible to see Hitler as an efficient manager? What would todayâ€™s business schools have to say about Churchillâ€™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 â€“ that of the businessperson. During 1939-45, â€śmanagersâ€ť of a different kind were facing immense challenges â€“ 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 todayâ€™s business managers and executives. In doing so, the author analyses WWIIâ€™s most famous campaigns, including Barbarossa, Stalingrad, D-Day and Pearl Harbour. Author:Â Ignacio Gonzalez-Posasa
Managing People and Organizations in Turbulent TimesAuthors:Â Lukas Michel andÂ ThomasÂ Kupferschmied This book will help managers toÂ gain a better perspective of theirÂ businesses and key activities and itÂ will be a valuable tool for managingÂ companies and people in these everchangingÂ and turbulent times.
The very recent financial and corporate governance scandal that engulfed Olympus, one of Japanâ€™s best known companies, together with Japanâ€™s stagnant economy of the past 20 years and its demotion from being the worldâ€™s second largest economy, has raised questions about the style of management within Japanese organisations.
This book provides a unique, insiderâ€™s perspective of the crisis of Japanese management that has contributed towards Japanâ€™s current economic woes. It contains true analyses of how giants such as Toyota, Canon, Nippon Steel, Hitachi and Olympus are really managed. Moreover, the author argues controversially that Japanâ€™s economic growth in the future will depend on a radical reformation of its management style and practices.
