|In the last century, changes in technology have driven massive developments in the social economy. The Fourth Industrial Revolution demands new approaches to organizational structures and teams. A paradigm shift is emerging, putting engagement, relations, inclusion and freedom at the centre. We need small self-managed teams, in a team-of-teams structure to be relevant to employees and customers, and in order to adapt to a changing world. In his second book, Erik Korsvik Ã˜stergaard draws on the workings of Frederic Laloux, and his 2014 title Reiventing Organisations. Laloux discusses the five organizational stages to the modern workforce; the Red, Amber, Orange, Green and Teal stages. And with these writings,Ã˜stergaard presents arguments towards how the classical corporate structure at the Orange stage, has experienced a rise in teal dots, or rather, neo-modernist forms of team-oriented organisms, which express a reorganisation for the future workforce.|
Apple, Starbucks, Zara, McDonaldâ€™s â€“ these are some of the brands and companies that are at the forefront of todayâ€™s global economy. They are embedded in virtually every city and town. But when the global economy goes wrong (as in 2008), it can leave local communities vulnerable in the form of unemployment and bankruptcy.
This forward-looking book argues for the creation of local economies as a means of resisting the seismic changes that globalization often brings, especially in times of crisis. Moreover, research shows that for every Â£100 spent in a local shop, 45% will remain in the community (compared with only 15% if spent in retail chains such as Tesco or Aldi). As part of the design of the future, Elmark argues for the need to break up the global economy into local economies, so that communities can regain their independence and be less exposed to the tide of globalization.

Coaching is an art, but it's far easier said than done. It takes courage to ask a question rather than offer up advice, provide an Â answer or unleash a solution. Giving another person the opportunity to find their own way, make their own mistakes, and create their own wisdom is both brave and vulnerable. Emotional intelligence can help leaders and coaches recognize how attitudes â€“ both their own and those of the people they coach â€“prevent individuals from reaching their potential.Â

From Trumpâ€™s aggressive rhetoric against China, to the escalating trade war with tit for tat responses, and Chinaâ€™s 2025 initiative that threatens the US global leadership in advanced technologies, tensions between the US and China (the two dominant forces of todayâ€™s world) have never been higher.
This book provides a timely analysis of the US-China relationship. Each model is deeply rooted in their respective histories and cultures, with both models highly successful in achieving their main goals and highly resilient over time. It explores the core misconceptions on governance, economic, social and military issues, and the root causes of these misconceptions. If China and US could close the gap by each understanding those differences and their implications, the author argues, they could work together to overcome global issues to the benefit of all.
