How engaged are your employees, really? Companies talk about âemployee engagementâ and they accept its importance, yet strangely, they adopt out-dated methods when analysing and measuring this engagement. A leading engagement expert offers a new framework for taking the genuine pulse of a company â so that leaders and management can truly understand how their people are feeling and know what actions to take that result in better performance. Based on making results instantly and transparently available, and then determining with employees the real factors that lie within their feelings, managers can more easily assess the way they need to approach an issue. If, as the clichĂ© goes, âpeople are a companyâs greatest assetâ, then ensuring their close engagement is essential for any company. This book argues powerfully for a radical new approach to employee engagement, based on understanding the minds and emotions of the people who work in organizations.

The Entrepreneurial Myth explains how business creators are turned into all-powerful, never-fail gurus as they shoulder the collective necessity for enterprise. The Myth skews public policy, damages entrepreneurs' mental health, amplifies business failure rates and undermines our economies.

It is a heartfelt call to business people and politicians, legislators and educators, to redesign enterprise for the next generation. Entrepreneurship - with all its griefs, glories and possibilities - belongs to us all.Author:Â Â Louise Nicolson Publisher: LID Publishing ISBN: 978-1-912555-08-6 FORMAT: 216 x 135mm Bookbinding: Paperback Number of pages: 240 pp

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.

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 âknow thyselfâ 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.
