High Frequency Change

We are dizzy trying to keep up with the constant flood of newness across every aspect of our lives. And it's clear that some of our biggest companies are facing similar challenges. Each week another big brand name fails. Why is this?
Change is like a wave: it has both amplitude and frequency. The last century was about change of great amplitude, big waves washing over the whole society. But this century is about high frequency change: rapid, smaller waves, each powerful enough to disrupt an industry. This book explains how we can understand high frequency change, what drives it, and how we must respond by changing the way we run our organisations - and our lives.

The Coaching Book

Coaching is an art, but it's far easier said than done. It takes courage to ask a question rather than offer up advice, provide an  answer or unleash a solution. Giving another person the opportunity to find their own way, make their own mistakes, and create their own wisdom is both brave and vulnerable. Emotional intelligence can help leaders and coaches recognize how attitudes – both their own and those of the people they coach –prevent individuals from reaching their potential. 

In this practical and inspiring book, EQ qualified trainer and coach Nicole Soames teaches you how to develop a coaching mind-set, recognize who and when you should coach, adopt a disciplines approach to coaching, learn how to manage the coaching conversation and give and receive feedback so that you can embed new ways of working. This is a fresh and innovative take on the traditional, how-to coaching manual.

The Ethical Business Book

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.
