Read My Lips

What if you could get people to listen to you in every situation? And in addition, get them to want to listen? Would that make life easier? Rhetoric is not the art of speaking - it is the art of getting others to listen. This book does not deal with the history of rhetoric - nor is it a book that teaches you how to 'talk nicely' - as many people might think when they hear the word 'rhetoric'. This book will teach you to speak effectively and increase the motivation of your listeners. Teaching you how to be professional and personal, without being private. Elaine shares her own experiences, and suggests with humour and warmth how to tackle difficult situations. Selling 60,000 copies in Sweden, this revised edition boasts completely new examples and rhetorical tricks.

Weather Or Not?

The impact of the weather is often taken for granted and sometimes completely ignored. Weather in all forms is a maker and breaker of both business and personal fortunes, especially when it reaches extremes. The weather we experience crucially dictates almost every aspect of our lives. It directs what we do and when we do it, from what we eat and drink, to the clothes we wear, and it even governs our health and behaviour. In this entertaining and informative book, global expert meteorologist and weather authority, Jim N R Dale, shares his experiences and advises how you and your business could truly become weather savvy. Weather impact is an all-consuming phenomenon, and, with the rise of climate change, there is no better time to tune into one of the most important aspects of our lives. Certainly, a book for a rainy day!

Upgraded

The realm of the “personal” is now increasingly touched by technology – especially the Internet. For example, sleep is now something we do in between checking our smartphones. Our relationship to food and eating has changed too. Home delivery, restaurant search, table bookings – these have all been elevated to a high level skill-set which is part-entertainment, part-electronic processing. And travel is now a finger-clicking exercise with precision timing.
This readjustment of our daily routine has had one significant effect: it has taught individuals a range of skills that would normally be in the domain of businesses.  Ordinary people now behave as businesses do by using buying strategies to get costs down. We now have expectations of quality and delivery. In fact, we have become so business-like as individuals that marketers need to get rid of the processes of “Business-to-Consumer” communication, and begin to adopt the rules of “Business-to-Business” when talking to consumers. Such change of our lives is an explosion of the new – new thinking, new business, new relationships, new selling, new buying, new leisure, new humans.

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.

The Prisoner and the Penguin

The power of a good story has long been recognised. It seems that, as a race, we humans love a good story. But stories aren’t just for pure enjoyment - they have long been a powerful tool for teaching. This book is an alternative to traditional marketing handbook. Rather than a textbook, it is an enjoyable “story-book” that brings to life some of the key principles of marketing in an easy-to-read, accessible form. Some of these stories are quite remarkable and almost unbelievable; but all are true and remind marketers and businesspeople that the best marketing is something which people tell others about and retell over many years.
