REVIEWS

Having worked with Ben over the years, I wholeheartedly recommend his approach to make purpose accessible to leaders across different sectors and organizations.

Andy Cosslett, Chairman, Kingfisher PLC

At My Hotels, we understand that great service should always be organic and from the heart. My partnership with Ben extends over 25 years, in which he has consistently given great service to his clients inspired by his purpose. Purpose is a great distillation of his insight, encouraging the reader to lead from the heart.

Andreas Thrasy, Founder and Chairman, My Hotels

Most leaders claim to value human dignity; far too many discard it quickly when under pressure at work. Purpose is a call to arms to reinforce humanity in the workplace and follow what matters most.

Cheryl Bachelder, author of Dare To Serve and former CEO, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen Inc

Wang Jianlin & Dalian Wanda

China’s economic rise and influence has been one of the most significant developments in the global economy of recent times. A driving force behind this expansion has been the private entrepreneurs and companies of China, some of which have literally redefined the economic and business landscape, both inside and outside of China. Wang Jianlin is one such entrepreneur. From small beginnings as an unknown soldier, Wang ventured into business and led a residential development company that was in imminent danger of going bankrupt. He turned the business around, and today, the Dalian Wanda Group is a transnational enterprise that has become a major player in real estate, football and the entertainment industry. This is the inside story of Asia’s richest man, his rise from humble origins, who became one of China’s great entrepreneur heroes, and whose presence today is pursued by the world’s most important political and business leaders.

If you work in business, the chances are you have fallen under the poisonous spell of business bullshit and jargon. 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.

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.

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.

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.

Brands and Rousers

How is it that some brands and companies manage to last decades, fending off crises and turbulence and continuing to prosper, while others fail? What does it take to achieve sustainable value and success? In this timely and important book, Luis Gallardo argues that executives and managers not only have to think holistically (in terms of strategy, structure and operations), but also act personally (to become “rousers”) if they are to succeed in these ever-changing times. As a manager, you have to engage and people, from top to bottom, and provide an understanding of the company’s mission and brand. As well as taking a broad, systems approach, you have to rouse (ignite and excite) the people in your organisation in order to make things happen. This balance between strategy and tactics, big picture and detail, planning and action, corporate direction and personal responsibility is the key to progress and resilience for your company in today’s turbulent times.
