Organisations that disturb the status quo
Challenger organisations are those companies which are disrupting their market and taking serious market share from their more dominant competitors. Such companies typically have an ambition beyond the conventional resources available to them. They are innovative and radical, and most enjoy significant and sustained periods of growth.
This book analyses the practices and disciplines that underpin the successful Challenger organisation. In particular it looks at how Challenger leadership and culture can be developed in large, complex, established organisations.

The art of turning uncertainty into opportunityAuthors:¬†Steven D‚ÄôSouza and Diana Renner
In order to thrive in worrying times,¬†this fascinating book proposes we¬†head, uncomfortably, towards the¬†unknown, rather than away from it.¬†By developing a unique relationship¬†with Not Knowing we discover a new¬†way of living, working and succeeding¬†in our modern world.
This book re-frames the concept of Not¬†Knowing, from being in a fearful place¬†of weakness and ignorance, moving¬†to something we must engage with¬†personally. It introduces us to a new¬†paradigm, where Not Knowing becomes¬†an exciting opportunity, where we are¬†no longer limited by what we already¬†know and our habitual reactions tothings that life throws at us, so that¬†deeper knowing can emerge, full of ¬†rich possibilities and wisdom.
