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.Author:Â Â Erik Korsvik Ostergaard Publisher: LID Publishing ISBN:Â 978-1-911498-53-7 FORMAT:Â 220 x 115mm Bookbinding: Paperback Number of pages: 216
We live in a world of constant change and disruption caused mainly by new technology. Yet, in business, there is widespread apathy, paralysis and confusion in many established companies in face of the obvious scope, scale, reach and pace of disruptive change. Why? Because Denial is the natural default response, given how executivesâ€™ brains function and how they are trained.
This important book examines why companies seem paralysed in the headlights of onrushing digital and other disruption. In analysing and understanding this tendency towards denial in companies, the author is then able to guide executives to begin seeing a new perspective to coping with the transformation challenge that faces them. Full of insightful case studies and lessons gained from the authorâ€™s work with leading companies, this is a hugely timely book when virtually all companies and executives must deal with the threat of disruptive change.

The future of business will be all about â€śbusiness as unusualâ€ť. The rising wave of new technology in particular will mean companies and individuals will experience change at a rate and scale that will surprise many. In this book, a leading futurist and consultant provides a unique perspective for understanding and managing such change. Hyttffors draws from the idea of yogic philosophy and the concept of mind mastery to help managers address the future of rapid change. He weaves together cutting edge technology with ancient Indian philosophy to increase business leadersâ€™ understanding of how everything is becoming interconnected, and how current problems on a macro level and disruptive technologies (as solutions) will change the world. Moreover, he argues that successful management of change can be achieved by managers through a deeper understanding of human emotions.

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.Author:Â Â Steven DÍ›Souza & Diana Renner Publisher: LID Publishing ISBN:Â 978-1-911498-49-0 FORMAT: 216x138mm Bookbinding: Paperback Number of pages: 292
