WHAT DOES IT REALLY TAKE TO SUCCEED AND PERFORM AS A BUSINESS MANAGER AND LEADER?Authors: John A. Dembitz
Taking the¬†organization from the¬†industrial era to¬†the age of ideasAuthors:¬†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‚Äôs¬†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.

The old marketing way, where¬†we were encouraged to spend¬†more on advertising and to be¬†seen, is dead. Marketing was¬†about interrupting the masses,¬†but times have changed. The¬†only differentiator we have, as¬†businesses, are the stories we tell.
The art of turning uncertainty into opportunityAuthors:¬†Steven D‚ÄôSouza 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.
HOW THE FUTURE¬†CAN BE WONAuthor:¬†Lars Tvede
Human creativity has been one of the¬†fundamental drivers of civilization¬†and progress ‚Äď 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.
