Fair Talk

Employees around the world are deprived of honest objective feedback, and the higher you go in the organisation, the less feedback you are going to get. Researchers confirmed that the less facetime employees have with their managers, the more impact seeking and receiving feedback will have on their performance. Gorbatov and Lane propose a simple, systematic approach to giving fair and honest feedback, in ways that improve performance and prove that, if done properly, feedback simultaneously improves performance while engaging and developing employees.

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.

The Art of Shopping

How we shop and why we buy
Whether you love it, hate it, or just get on with it, everybody is a shopper. From the poorest African townships to the smartest retail spaces in the world, shopping is an activity that constantly consumes vast amounts of our time, money and attention. It simultaneously drives commerce and fills our fridges. The things we buy contribute to our own personal sense of identity, sustaining us both physically and emotionally. Yet how much do we really understand about shopping? More to the point, how well do retailers and manufacturers understand the way we shop? In this highly readable, ground-breaking book Siemon Scamell-Katz, one of the world's leading analysts of shopper behaviour, provides a surprising look at shopper behaviour. Drawing on 20 years of pioneering research (from filming shoppers in-store to brain scanning), the author explains how people around the world really shop. The Art of Shopping explores what we actually do rather than what we think we do, how we really choose and make decisions to buy, and what really works for brands trying to persuade us to buy. The result is a book that will change the way retailers sell and people shop, forever. Author:  Siemon Scamell-Katz

Dedication

In 2012, the Chinese company Huawei Technologies overtook Ericsson to become the world’s largest telecommunications equipment manufacturer, firmly establishing itself on the world business map. Today, it has over 170,000 employees worldwide and in 2014 the company generated a remarkable profit of $5.5 billion. Whilst research and development and the technology that results from it are core drivers of Huawei’s success, the company’s amazing growth is also determined by its human resource strategy. This is based on a “customer-first” attitude, the belief that obtaining opportunities is through hard work and, above all, “a dedication to do the best in anything we do”. How Huawei promotes this dedication amongst its workforce is the subject of this important book. Through original incentive systems, employee ownership and the mentality to act like a boss, Huawei has managed to create a culture of dedication that has become the bedrock of its growth today.
