The Green Bubble

The fact is, we are hopelessly addicted to energy. It is the thin glue that holds our civilized world together and life without it would be unthinkable.

Per Wimmer, Owner of Wimmer Financial, Wimmer Family Office and WimmerSpace.com, is releasing his book The Green Bubble this November. The Green Bubble offers an analysis of the current financial bubble being created in the energy sector, by governments subsidizing renewable energy investment. He argues that these investments are not sustainable, and makes a case for investment in gas and, controversially, nuclear power.

Alongside the pressure to reduce greenhouse emissions, there is a challenge to find new, renewable energy sources. Many of the current ideas, Wimmer argues, are politically driven. The book also offers an engaging and intelligent analysis of the different energy issues that the world is facing, and how politics has led us in the wrong direction.

The Responsive Leader

The world is changing. The world has changed already. But have you changed with it? The change in technology in the last century has driven a massive development in organizations and in society. The so-called Fourth Industrial Revolution demands new approaches to leaders and to leadership. A paradigm shift is emerging, putting engagement, relations, inclusion, freedom, and engagement in the centre; both towards employees and customers. We need to be responsive in order to be relevant to employees and to customers, and in order to adapt to a changing world. We need to be The Responsive Leader. Erik Ostergaard introduces a proven model for engaging in the transformation, covering: purpose and direction, innovation, culture, organizing, and leadership.

The Art of Shopping

How we shop and why we buy
Whether you love it, hate it, or just get on with it, everybody is a shopper. From the poorest African townships to the smartest retail spaces in the world, shopping is an activity that constantly consumes vast amounts of our time, money and attention. It simultaneously drives commerce and fills our fridges. The things we buy contribute to our own personal sense of identity, sustaining us both physically and emotionally. Yet how much do we really understand about shopping? More to the point, how well do retailers and manufacturers understand the way we shop? In this highly readable, ground-breaking book Siemon Scamell-Katz, one of the world's leading analysts of shopper behaviour, provides a surprising look at shopper behaviour. Drawing on 20 years of pioneering research (from filming shoppers in-store to brain scanning), the author explains how people around the world really shop. The Art of Shopping explores what we actually do rather than what we think we do, how we really choose and make decisions to buy, and what really works for brands trying to persuade us to buy. The result is a book that will change the way retailers sell and people shop, forever. Author:  Siemon Scamell-Katz

Be

What is it about certain individuals that inspire not only themselves but also the people around them, organizations, and even whole nations to be more creative, innovative and transformational? The core premise of the book is geared around the idea that inspiring leaders are not only successful because of what they do. It is primarily because of who they are. A certain sense of being that comes with deeper levels of awareness, which turns ordinary people into inspiring leaders. Whether you are a CEO, a director, a student, a parent, or merely someone who wants to inspire and make a positive difference in the world, reaching deeper levels of awareness is what will help you make that difference.

Not Doing

So many people today are struggling with the increasing pace of change and the constant and excessive busyness that comes with it. Many feel stretched, overwhelmed and exhausted, besieged by the demands of complex projects and workplaces. They are engaged in a kind of "doing" that is more effort and struggle, rather than a "doing" that comes from a place of presence, openness and aliveness. This is not only ineffective and unsustainable, but ultimately ends in stress, anxiety and burnout. This book, by the authors of the award-winning Not Knowing (Best Management Book of the Year), explores the limits and dangers of "doing"; how do they play out in our lives and workplaces; what is driving, or contributing, to our excessive activity; and what would a different kind of "doing" look like, that is less about control and struggle and more about well-being, harmony and creativity.

The Business Bullshit Book

If you work in business, the chances are you have fallen under the poisonous spell of business bullshit and jargon.

No longer solely the province of management consultants, investors and MBA types, business gobbledygook has mesmerized the rank and file around the globe. Help is at hand with this The Business Bullshit Book, aptly described as “the world’s most comprehensive collection” of the top 2,000 business terms and jargon that have infected us all. Stay sane (and keep your colleagues and customers from suffocating you) from the business bullshit madness by having this dictionary by your side. Based on his wide and extensive experience with business bullshit, Kevin Duncan deciphers the terms and language of modern-day business speak.
