Ma Huateng and Tencent

Yoga for Leaders

The future of business will be all about “business as unusual”. 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 leaders’ 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.

Iconic

This book is about icons – exceptional organizations (orchestras, restaurants, sports teams or companies) with an aspiration to make or do something special, and to go on doing so, year in, year out for decades. This is what gives these organizations their undeniably iconic status.
By selecting 14 iconic organizations (including ElBulli, McKinsey, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Procter & Gamble, the All Blacks) and researching what characteristics make them different from others, the authors discovered a “competency spiral” which these organizations exhibit in their success. Attracting and retaining the right people; forging individuals into a team; and achieving outstanding results, time after time, through continuous improvement and adjustment – these are the key competencies required to achieve iconic status.

Business Alchemy

In this enlightening and engaging book, Andrew Wallas views the company from a metaphysical perspective to provide a new approach to transforming the organization. Business Alchemy focuses on the inner dynamics and energy flow within the organization itself, seeing where there is visible and hidden contradiction working against the aims of the company. It is by taking a deeper look inside of your company (instead of focusing on the outer machinations of your business), and by bringing these (often unconscious) blocks to light, that energy is released and the company is then free to move forward, fully aligned with its stated objectives and goals. This is a unique perspective on how companies can evolve and grow naturally and successfully.
