Small groups have been the social fabric of our societies since before we sat around a campfire cooking together. We hunt, eat, laugh and create in small groups or even teams. Maria Katsarou-Makin provides an intellectual tour through many of the primary sources, theories and research about effective teams and even sensitively examines the dark side of teams and frequent pathology. It is guaranteed to spark ideas about how to lead and infect your teams even in virtual settings!

Perform to win

This book explores and demonstrates the transformative learning experiences that organizations and their leaders can derive from the arts. It is through the arts that we have always explored our humanity: through dance and music; art and sculpture; theatre and poetry. The arts allow us to explore our own selves and our relationship to others and to the world around us. This central role of the arts is commonly accepted in everyday life, but the implications of this are not typically extended to the world of business.The authors argues strongly that, to the contrary, the methodologies and approaches that are fundamental to performing artists of all kinds can provide exactly the kind of inspirational, people-centred and performance-related techniques that are missing from much of the typically mechanistic, systems-based and process-driven training and development of managers and executives. Technical proficiency and expertise are not enough to deliver an award-winning result; what enables a truly outstanding performance is the elusive but entirely recognizable element of artistry – the spark that transforms a technically good performance into something extraordinary.

Dedication

In 2012, the Chinese company Huawei Technologies overtook Ericsson to become the world’s largest telecommunications equipment manufacturer, firmly establishing itself on the world business map. Today, it has over 170,000 employees worldwide and in 2014 the company generated a remarkable profit of $5.5 billion. Whilst research and development and the technology that results from it are core drivers of Huawei’s success, the company’s amazing growth is also determined by its human resource strategy. This is based on a “customer-first” attitude, the belief that obtaining opportunities is through hard work and, above all, “a dedication to do the best in anything we do”. How Huawei promotes this dedication amongst its workforce is the subject of this important book. Through original incentive systems, employee ownership and the mentality to act like a boss, Huawei has managed to create a culture of dedication that has become the bedrock of its growth today.

Very few of us seem able to avoid “reaching out”, or “walk the talk”, or “shifting paradigms”, or “think outside the box”. 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.

Pushing the boundaries

This is the autobiography of one of the most influential management consultants of recent times. Herbert Henzler grew up in the German village of Neckarhausen during the Second World War. Starting his career as a sales apprentice with Shell, he went on to study at the universities of Saarland, Ludwig-Maximillian and California, Berkeley, where he received his PhD in economics. In 1970, Henzler accepted an offer to join McKinsey & Company, a rapidly growing firm that would eventually become the world’s leading consultancy group. Working in its German office, Henzler quickly rose to Partner in 1975 and then Director in 1978. His spectacular rise continued when, in 1985, Henzler became head of McKinsey’s German office and one of the most powerful management consultants in the world. Honest and at times direct, this book provides a rare insight into the world of management consultancy and how one man made it to the top by constantly pushing the boundaries.
