Peter Drucker is an icon of the business world. The methods developed by this genius were so powerful that they are still used today in organizations all over the world.

For the first time, this book examines the self-development methods that Drucker created and practiced - and offers vital and original lessons to anyone in business on how to accomplish any goal in any endeavor. For as Drucker wrote: "The most crucial and vital resource you have as an executive and as a manager is yourself; your organization is not going to do better than you do yourself." Author: William A.

The Power of Active Thinking

How can decisions be improved by detecting and managing inherent weaknesses? This book analyses the practical implications of behavioural economics among decision makers to encourage active creative thinking and drive individuals and organizations to make better decisions. Going beyond behavioural economics, the book uses psychology, philosophy and anthropology to demonstrate the myths which govern behaviour, our natural longing for inclusion and the power held by those setting the agenda our vicinity. This book enables active thinking and encourages the use of System 2 thinking to steer the corporate ship in line with the corporate purpose, and for individuals to be a useful asset to their companies. In order to succeed, you need to be resilient, get your bearings and never give in. In short, you need to be a contrarian, a sternly resilient contrarian.

Positive Male Mind

Mental health problems affect both men and women, in fact, every one in four of us. However, it has been widely accepted for some time that men are much less likely to seek help from a doctor or mental health specialist, as they traditionally expect themselves to be competitive and successful, tough and self-reliant and can find it difficult to admit that they are feeling fragile and vulnerable. This book aims to build on the current progressive movement by supporting men and those that care about them - be that a partner, friend, family member or colleague - by providing insight, advice, and tips on what can be done at a very practical level to make men's mental health much more positive.

One Life

Never before in history have, we been more educated, wealthier, and lived longer with more opportunities in life. Conversely, we have never been more stressed, anxious, depressed or lonely. In One Life, the philosopher and business executive Morten Albæk investigates this paradox and the absurdity that all of the world’s impressive socio-economic advancements have not been translated into more existential wellbeing. It is critical to understand why those of us, especially in prosperous countries with high living standards, continue to get sick, particularly due to work-related stress and poor leadership. The cure is not more ‘work-life balance’, but that we stop separating our persona into a working human being and private human being, and instead see ourselves as one human being with one life. That one life should be as meaningful as possible; it is meaning – not happiness – that is the most important basic ingredient for the sustainability of our lives, our businesses and our society.

The Human Moment

Organizations are becoming increasingly dehumanized. The move toward an AI-driven world of work means intense competition for a finite number of ‘human’ resources where the pressure to perform can incite an “I’m fine” response when a colleague enquires into our wellbeing. Opportunities to connect authentically with or care for one other at a basic human level are diminishing, and we only know our colleagues superficially.

 This book argues that human connections are formed by showing vulnerability and sharing stories of suffering. Creating a culture of workplace compassion is an organizational imperative in the 21stcentury where suffering is hidden, stress-related absence is growing and career burnout is a recognized phenomenon. The Human Momentsuggests that, by encouraging cultures of compassion, organizations can help to build healtheir workplace environments.
