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.

This practical book offers strategies and guidance to coping with and surviving a range of crisis moments and issues that affect our ability to perform at work. Written by expert coaches, the book helps anyone to develop a series of competencies in order to help us manage crisis points and improve our personal resilience.

The future of business will be all about “business as unusual”. The rising wave of new technology in particular will mean companies and individuals will experience change at a rate and scale that will surprise many. In this book, a leading futurist and consultant provides a unique perspective for understanding and managing such change.
Hyttffors draws from the idea of yogic philosophy and the concept of mind mastery to help managers address the future of rapid change. He weaves together cutting edge technology with ancient Indian philosophy to increase business leaders’ understanding of how everything is becoming interconnected, and how current problems on a macro level and disruptive technologies (as solutions) will change the world. Moreover, he argues that successful management of change can be achieved by managers through a deeper understanding of human emotions.

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. Yet one of his most important contributions is still little known. Drucker had uncovered principles of self-development that he put into practice himself - principles that enabled him to reach all of his life goals.
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."

One of the biggest enemies of our general wellbeing is stress; and one of the biggest causes of stress is concern about money. This book provides a simple and practical guide to planning your daily and long-term finances by understanding your objectives and motivations. In doing so, it offers respite from the anxiety and stress caused by money problems. The author, an experienced financial adviser, argues that the key to financial wellbeing is to “know thyself” in order to allow decisions to be made, and to ensure those decisions are the rights ones for you. This is underpinned by having control of your daily finances, the ability to cope with a financial shock, to be able to have options in life, to have identifiable goals and a clear path to achieve them, and to ensure clarity and security for those we leave behind.
