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

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.

When you are on purpose, you unlock the necessary skill-set to fulfil your leadership potential and thrive in today s complex and disruptive world. Author: Ben Renshaw
