REVIEWS

I warmly welcome this book on the new style of leadership, needed by organisations to survive and thrive in complex and volatile business environments. I could not agree more –it is all about people and their mindset!

Vlatka Hlupic, author of the award-winning The Management Shift Book

I am a big fan of self-management for workplaces. However, as a co-founder of a self-managed company, I get very impatient with books that overhype self-management and don’t spend enough time on how to get there and how to make it sustainable. Erik is a practitioner and it shows in this book. As he says, this book is not a ‘codex that you must follow dogmatically’. Better than that, the book is a platform for the mindset, habits, and practices to help you create a more humane and meaningful workplace, with more engaged and happier people. Go ahead and read it.

Matt Perez, co-founder, Nearsoft Inc

Excellent! Erik has written a book you can’t put down. He takes you by the hand and leads you safely through the vast amount of academic studies and leadership literature and presents his own very attractive and consistent framework on how to shift from the Yesterday of Work to the Future of Work – as a leader, as an organization, as a human. Erikmasters the art of inviting you into the world of uncertainty and gives you a map to navigate towards the rising sun. Hint: It’s all about people, curiosity and circular learning.

Jesper Rønnow Simonsen, Founder, NetworksPartners.biz, former chief executive officer in the Danish public sector

Pushing the boundaries

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.

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.

Wild Knowledge: Outthink the Revolution

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.

Business Alchemy

In this enlightening and engaging book, Andrew Wallas views the company from a metaphysical perspective to provide a new approach to transforming the organization. Business Alchemy focuses on the inner dynamics and energy flow within the organization itself, seeing where there is visible and hidden contradiction working against the aims of the company. It is by taking a deeper look inside of your company (instead of focusing on the outer machinations of your business), and by bringing these (often unconscious) blocks to light, that energy is released and the company is then free to move forward, fully aligned with its stated objectives and goals. This is a unique perspective on how companies can evolve and grow naturally and successfully.
