Work and Days

We may have advanced technologically and scientifically, but when it comes to raw intelligence we have progressed no further than the Greeks and the Romans. And when it comes to business and strategy, Greece and Rome could well be called the 'Mothers of Invention'. We know the Ancient Greeks and Romans through their warfare, construction, science, oratory, technology, philosophy, drama and literature. But there were businessmen too. Traders, shopkeepers wholesalers, accountants, commercial travellers and so on. In this exciting new book we encounter famous names like Homer, Plato, Aristotle, Herodotus, Euripides, Cicero, Julius Caesar and Marcus Aurelius as well as many other clever thinkers from the past whose views on how to get through the working day are so contemporary you d think they were written yesterday. You'll discover an amazing emphasis on self-development, leadership techniques, the best use of time and the importance of caring for both our physical and mental health. Each day there is a small piece of wisdom from over one hundred of the world-class strategists, proven leaders, inspirational innovators, smart writers and successful power-brokers from the period of history that first taught us how to think and then taught us to lead and manage.

The Power of Active Thinking

How can decisions be improved by detecting and managing inherent weaknesses? This book analyses the practical implications of behavioural economics among decision makers to encourage active creative thinking and drive individuals and organizations to make better decisions. Going beyond behavioural economics, the book uses psychology, philosophy and anthropology to demonstrate the myths which govern behaviour, our natural longing for inclusion and the power held by those setting the agenda our vicinity. This book enables active thinking and encourages the use of System 2 thinking to steer the corporate ship in line with the corporate purpose, and for individuals to be a useful asset to their companies. In order to succeed, you need to be resilient, get your bearings and never give in. In short, you need to be a contrarian, a sternly resilient contrarian.

The Wellbeing Book will demonstrate how we can interact with the world to lead a better life. The author provides 50 practical and uplifting ways to improve physical and mental wellbeing by focusing on the mind, body, and soul. In doing so, he helps us to hit the pause button and learn how to enhance our energy and build resilience, cultivate our emotional and physical wellbeing, manage stress and live a happier and more fulfilled life.

Positive Male Mind

Mental health problems affect both men and women, in fact, every one in four of us. However, it has been widely accepted for some time that men are much less likely to seek help from a doctor or mental health specialist, as they traditionally expect themselves to be competitive and successful, tough and self-reliant and can find it difficult to admit that they are feeling fragile and vulnerable. This book aims to build on the current progressive movement by supporting men and those that care about them - be that a partner, friend, family member or colleague - by providing insight, advice, and tips on what can be done at a very practical level to make men's mental health much more positive.

Target

Target presents a unique approach to business and life, taking inspiration from the wisdom of the ancient Japanese martial art of archery - Kyudo. Kyudo has a particular teaching: Right shooting always results in a hit . This means that you shouldn t worry about simply hitting the target; instead, you should calmly focus your energy and willpower on proper mindset and form. In doing so, this right-minded shooting will naturally result in a hit. In the business world, we are all under the pressure of hitting sales targets, improving profit margins, increasing efficiency and maintaining relationships. The philosophy of Kyudo gives new perspectives and solutions to the struggles and opportunities that anyone may encounter in their business and career. Target stands as a relevant guide to our modern times. The Kyudo aphorisms have been passed from Japanese masters directly to the author, and have been put into practice for professional and personal situations.

One Life

Never before in history have, we been more educated, wealthier, and lived longer with more opportunities in life. Conversely, we have never been more stressed, anxious, depressed or lonely. In One Life, the philosopher and business executive Morten Albæk investigates this paradox and the absurdity that all of the world’s impressive socio-economic advancements have not been translated into more existential wellbeing. It is critical to understand why those of us, especially in prosperous countries with high living standards, continue to get sick, particularly due to work-related stress and poor leadership. The cure is not more ‘work-life balance’, but that we stop separating our persona into a working human being and private human being, and instead see ourselves as one human being with one life. That one life should be as meaningful as possible; it is meaning – not happiness – that is the most important basic ingredient for the sustainability of our lives, our businesses and our society.
