The burgeoning array of literature on ethical behaviour tends to focus on what’s happening at the extremes – either owner managers of start-ups built around a strong moral crusade, or large corporations undergoing change due to the personal epiphany of a forward-thinking CEO.
This book, however, is directed at the middle ground – individuals who want their companies to adopt more ethical and sustainable practices, but don’t know where to start. The 50 ideas and techniques in this book provide direction to help society and the planet, while preserving the bottom line.

We live in a world that is unequal by nature. One could even say that its diversity is essential to all the world’s survival. However, inequality among human beings is one of society’s biggest problems.
This book is about opportunities. It is about being at the forefront of a paradigm change and a win-win situation. And it is about leading one of the most compelling and exciting shifts in our society: women’s empowerment. Company leaders are used to dealing with radical changes in markets, but there is a story that corporations all over the globe have chosen to ignore. This story is the sum total of millions of lost opportunities, because over half the potential workforce was left behind. Although half the population is made up of women, only 50% of them can earn a decent living. The Other Halfsets out to change just that.

How engaged are your employees, really? Companies talk about ‘employee engagement’ and they accept its importance, yet strangely, they adopt out-dated methods when analysing and measuring this engagement.
A leading engagement expert offers a new framework for taking the genuine pulse of a company – so that leaders and management can truly understand how their people are feeling and know what actions to take that result in better performance. Based on making results instantly and transparently available, and then determining with employees the real factors that lie within their feelings, managers can more easily assess the way they need to approach an issue. If, as the cliché goes, ‘people are a company’s greatest asset’, then ensuring their close engagement is essential for any company. This book argues powerfully for a radical new approach to employee engagement, based on understanding the minds and emotions of the people who work in organizations.

Employees around the world are deprived of honest objective feedback, and the higher you go in the organisation, the less feedback you are going to get. Researchers confirmed that the less facetime employees have with their managers, the more impact seeking and receiving feedback will have on their performance.
Gorbatov and Lane propose a simple, systematic approach to giving fair and honest feedback, in ways that improve performance and prove that, if done properly, feedback simultaneously improves performance while engaging and developing employees.

Peter Drucker is an icon of the business world. The methods developed by this genius were so powerful that they are still used today in organizations all over the world. Yet one of his most important contributions is still little known.

For the first time, this book examines the self-development methods that Drucker created and practiced - and offers vital and original lessons to anyone in business on how to accomplish any goal in any endeavor. For as Drucker wrote: "The most crucial and vital resource you have as an executive and as a manager is yourself; your organization is not going to do better than you do yourself."
