REVIEWS

The most un-bullshit laden change book I’ve ever read. Full of practical philosophy, action-oriented vision and tooled up with humanistic virtue. This is about people powering change. Doing it themselves. Feeling it and ratifying it. This book is a myth-buster and a Swiss Army knife for change.

PERRY TIMMS, Chief Energy Officer, PTHR and author of Transformational HR and The Energized Workplace

This is another great read by Neil Usher. The topic is of the utmost importance; the timing impeccable. Neil’s wittiness, deep and wide knowledge and vast practical experience permeate this new book of his. It has just been added to my list of favourites and it is a must-read for all those leading, managing, experiencing and thinking about organizational change.”

ANA NEVES, Founder, Knowman and organizer of the Social Now Conference

The key to business advantage is anticipating and navigating change – perpetual, unpredictable and interconnected. This no-nonsense book is an invaluable aid in understanding the nature of change and how to lead it successfully.

Business Alchemy

In this enlightening and engaging book, Andrew Wallas views the company from a metaphysical perspective to provide a new approach to transforming the organization. Business Alchemy focuses on the inner dynamics and energy flow within the organization itself, seeing where there is visible and hidden contradiction working against the aims of the company. It is by taking a deeper look inside of your company (instead of focusing on the outer machinations of your business), and by bringing these (often unconscious) blocks to light, that energy is released and the company is then free to move forward, fully aligned with its stated objectives and goals. This is a unique perspective on how companies can evolve and grow naturally and successfully.

The Human Way

In this counter-intuitive book for managers, the author argues that no one is perfect and that success as a leader is not about being perfect and always doing the right thing; it is about accepting your own humanity and adopting a number of down-to-earth attitudes and values. That’s when we achieve true (adequate) success.
Through ten commandments – starting with “Be humble – as a manager, you are also an employee” – management expert Kelly Odell provides a new perspective on how we should behave as managers in this age of differing cultures and values. How we think about people, motivation, power and relationships is the foundation for successful management. Odell argues that too much emphasis is placed on the leader setting a good example and becoming a (heroic) role model, when in fact a leader whose priority is on other people is more likely to create value for their company and succeed as a manager.
