The 31 Practices

Every company has its own values and brand which it wants its customers and clients to engage with and develop loyalty to. At the same time, research shows that 70% of customers’ brand perception is determined by their experience with the company’s employees. Moreover, 41% of customers are loyal because of good employee attitude. This book shows how companies can translate their values and brand into the daily practices and behaviour of their employees, especially those who must deal directly with customers. Drawing its principles from psychology, sociology, philosophy, neuroscience and leadership, the 31 Practices method has been successfully adopted by large and small companies around the world, and has been responsible for significantly enhancing customer satisfaction and loyalty.

The Power of Capitalism

“The market has failed, we need more government intervention." That’s the mantra politicians, the media, and intellectuals have been reiterating ever since the outbreak of the 2008 financial crisis. By taking the reader on a journey across continents and through recent history, Rainer Zitelmann disproves this call for greater government intervention, and demonstrates that capitalism matters more than ever. The author provides compelling evidence from across the world that capitalism has been the solution to a number of massive problems. He compares developments in West and East Germany, North and South Korea, capitalist Chile v. Socialist Venezuela, and analyzes the extraordinary economic rise of China. For many people, "capitalism" is a dirty word. This book provides a timely reminder of capitalism’s power in enabling growth and prosperity, and in alleviating poverty.
