In the last century, changes in technology have driven massive developments in the social economy. The Fourth Industrial Revolution demands new approaches to organizational structures and teams. A paradigm shift is emerging, putting engagement, relations, inclusion and freedom at the centre. We need small self-managed teams, in a team-of-teams structure to be relevant to employees and customers, and in order to adapt to a changing world.
In his second book, Erik Korsvik Østergaard draws on the workings of Frederic Laloux, and his 2014 title Reiventing Organisations. Laloux discusses the five organizational stages to the modern workforce; the Red, Amber, Orange, Green and Teal stages. And with these writings,Østergaard presents arguments towards how the classical corporate structure at the Orange stage, has experienced a rise in teal dots, or rather, neo-modernist forms of team-oriented organisms, which express a reorganisation for the future workforce.

Erik Korsvik Østergaard’s new book carries on where his last book ended with an increased understanding of the changes happening in management and organizational design. There is a need for change since many systems are hindered by old, hierarchical, linear and cultural baggage that has to find new forms in a world where fundamental structures are changing. Humanity, empathy and creativity are the way forward. Erik gives a strong input on how you can actively work on finding your own way in creating meaning and coherence for yourself as a leader, for your employees, your organization, your stakeholders and the outside world. Five teal stars to Erik’s new book.
This is the autobiography of one of the most influential management consultants of recent times. Herbert Henzler grew up in the German village of Neckarhausen during the Second World War. Starting his career as a sales apprentice with Shell, he went on to study at the universities of Saarland, Ludwig-Maximillian and California, Berkeley, where he received his PhD in economics.
In 1970, Henzler accepted an offer to join McKinsey & Company, a rapidly growing firm that would eventually become the world’s leading consultancy group. Working in its German office, Henzler quickly rose to Partner in 1975 and then Director in 1978. His spectacular rise continued when, in 1985, Henzler became head of McKinsey’s German office and one of the most powerful management consultants in the world. Honest and at times direct, this book provides a rare insight into the world of management consultancy and how one man made it to the top by constantly pushing the boundaries.
Success is often measured by financial successes and business acheivements.

What matters is whether it resonates with you.
This book enables you to create a life path for yourself that is more harmonious for you to enjoy and experience, which in turn is more harmonious and satisfying for those around you. In that way we all could achieve more with less effort and less strife, which ultimately will help the world, become a slightly better place to live in.
Today, we live and do business in a world where society gathers knowledge faster than it gathers wisdom. It is a world of continuous revolution and change. Those who manage to find, structure and exploit the power of "Wild Knowledge" - ie, the untamed data, learnings and experiences that flourish in our lives and minds - will come out the winners. In combination, we need to develop our ability to understand and judge which aspects of that knowledge are applicable to business and life in general. This is the so-called "Vicious Wisdom" which will force you to unlearn, to choose an approach of unthinking, in order to reach a deeper understanding, meaning and reason in your quest to find new and different solutions. This book, written by a leading futurist/philosopher, presents a powerful and radical approach to thinking about and solving our future lives and businesses.
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.
Help is at hand with this The Business Bullshit Book, aptly described as “the world’s most comprehensive collection” of the top 2,000 business terms and jargon that have infected us all. 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.
Across the world businesses are searching for ways to work leaner and smarter. Working virtually across countries, time zones, and regions is, in theory, a good way to stay connected and keep travel and accommodation costs down. Businesses must be competent at working virtually in order to thrive and, meeting virtually is today’s reality.
Technology companies are getting better and better at supporting meaningful virtual meetings and communication media is galloping ahead with people actively staying connected through social media and yet, at the same time virtual business meetings are hitting a glass ceiling. This book suggests that the human behaviour needed to make the most of these meetings is struggling to keep up.
In this book you will learn how to make meetings work for you, how to be present and how to be understood, why you suck at meetings today and what to do about it for tomorrow.
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.
The health of our brain, as measured through cognitive health domains such as “executive function”, is the single most important aspect of our overall health. In business, good cognitive health enables you to go beyond simply coping, to managing and leading. For a fully functioning brain enables us to operate to our highest capacity and reach optimum performance. Improved cognitive health allows us to become sharp, accurate, confident, precise, attentive, a source of wisdom and a bundle of energy.
This book provides a comprehensive overview of the key cognitive health domains and how they impact your ability to operate at your best. You will understand the importance of each domain in order for you to maximize your cognitive health and be your best – or to have the best executive function.
In this counter-intuitive book for managers, the author argues that no one is perfect and that success as a leader is not about being perfect and always doing the right thing; it is about accepting your own humanity and adopting a number of down-to-earth attitudes and values. That’s when we achieve true (adequate) success.
Through ten commandments – starting with “Be humble – as a manager, you are also an employee” – management expert Kelly Odell provides a new perspective on how we should behave as managers in this age of differing cultures and values. How we think about people, motivation, power and relationships is the foundation for successful management. Odell argues that too much emphasis is placed on the leader setting a good example and becoming a (heroic) role model, when in fact a leader whose priority is on other people is more likely to create value for their company and succeed as a manager.
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.
