REVIEWS

Andrew is an expert at improving workplaces and we should all heed his advice! Not only will you feel better, your workforce will be happier, and your business more profitable.

David C Watt, Executive Director, Institute of Directors

This is not a book with lots of dos and don’ts, of musts and shoulds, adding to your long to-do list. It gently nudges you in the direction of paying more attention to your wellbeing by asking all the right questions. Sharman does not ask you to climb difficult mountains, but is your guide in an interesting garden, that is you. I am more directive than this: buy this book, read a chapter every day and take three minutes to reflect, undisturbed. If you invest more time and energy in your work than in your own wellbeing, you shouldn’t be surprised that your work is doing better than you.

Professor Dr Theo Compernolle, Neuropsychiatrist and author of Brain Chains and Stress: Friend and Foe

Target

Target presents a unique approach to business and life, taking inspiration from the wisdom of the ancient Japanese martial art of archery - Kyudo. Kyudo has a particular teaching: Right shooting always results in a hit . This means that you shouldn t worry about simply hitting the target; instead, you should calmly focus your energy and willpower on proper mindset and form. In doing so, this right-minded shooting will naturally result in a hit. In the business world, we are all under the pressure of hitting sales targets, improving profit margins, increasing efficiency and maintaining relationships. The philosophy of Kyudo gives new perspectives and solutions to the struggles and opportunities that anyone may encounter in their business and career. Target stands as a relevant guide to our modern times. The Kyudo aphorisms have been passed from Japanese masters directly to the author, and have been put into practice for professional and personal situations.

Not Doing

So many people today are struggling with the increasing pace of change and the constant and excessive busyness that comes with it. Many feel stretched, overwhelmed and exhausted, besieged by the demands of complex projects and workplaces. They are engaged in a kind of "doing" that is more effort and struggle, rather than a "doing" that comes from a place of presence, openness and aliveness. This is not only ineffective and unsustainable, but ultimately ends in stress, anxiety and burnout. This book, by the authors of the award-winning Not Knowing (Best Management Book of the Year), explores the limits and dangers of "doing"; how do they play out in our lives and workplaces; what is driving, or contributing, to our excessive activity; and what would a different kind of "doing" look like, that is less about control and struggle and more about well-being, harmony and creativity.

Minifesto

We live in times of great change. Or so we are told. Headlines blast messages about clashes between tribes, civilisations, political factions, East and West. We are told that unless we abstain from eating meat, flying or enjoying other modern amenities, the planet is doomed. We live in times of trouble. Of crossroads. Of signs of decline. We live in special times. In turn, future thinking is often reduced to people having opinions about other people’s opinions.
As opposed to manifesto, in manifesto many small ideas are created to inspire one person, your- self. By sharing the vision of the future, we can avoid telling stories and instead strive to surround ourselves with as many strange, conflicting ideas that we can in order to immerse ourselves in future possibilities and possible futures. Incorporating recognisable examples, Minifesto will illustrate how the world changes when a single individual does something new.

The Attitude Book

How to create positive change and outcomes by "shifting" our attitudes. The definition of attitude: an expression of favour or disfavour toward a person, thing or event. As human beings, we often find ourselves locked into certain habits, patterns and behaviours.

In this original and engaging book, a leading business coach demonstrates how we can shift our attitudes to create positive change and outcomes in our work and personal lives. In doing so, he helps us to reassess our current habits and behaviours, and makes us realize the wider choices we have in coping and dealing with people, issues and problems in our everyday lives. Part of the bestselling Concise Advice series - stylishly presented and easy to understand and apply.
