The Battle To Do Good: Inside McDonald's Sustainability Journey
In The Battle to Do Good, former McDonald's executive Bob Langert takes readers on a behind-the-scenes eye witness account of the mega brand's battle to address numerous societal hot-button issues, such as packaging, waste, recycling, obesity, deforestation, and animal welfare. From the late 80s, McDonald's landed smack in the middle of one contentious issue after another, often locking horns with powerful NGOs such as Greenpeace, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, and Corporate Accountability. This sudden shift from being the beloved Golden Arches since opening its doors in 1955, to the demon of many societal ills, caught McDonald's off guard. Langert chronicles the highs and lows that McDonald's experienced in turbulent times and how its sustainability journey evolved from playing defense to strategically solving issues with unlikely partners, including a whirling dervish, autistic animal scientist, and avid environmentalists from the World Wildlife Fund and Conservation International. Packed with first-hand anecdotes, interviews with key McDonald's executives and NGO leaders, and scores of lessons learned, The Battle to Do Good is a sustainability page turner that provides unique insights and guidance on how to successfully navigate and manage today's societal issues to make the business stronger, more relevant, and more profitable.

The Marvelous Millennial's Manual to Modern Manners is the concise, approachable and relevant go-to manners and civility manual that makes all professional millennials' lives more productive and pleasant. Most Americans think society is becoming more and more rude. Everyone blames the young generation, but that trend has been the case since the beginning of time. Actually, millennials have many positive attributes to offer-empathy, open-mindedness, and optimism. However, they don't have a solid foundation in manners. The Marvelous Millennial's Manual to Modern Manners gives millennials the tools they need for professional and personal success with its concise and relevant sections on personal branding, business etiquette, and dining skills. All these important life skills are like any other skill: they must be learned. This is the manners manual for them.

The Art of Plain Speaking: How to Write and Speak in a Way that Will Impress the People that Matter
After more than a decade working as an editor and journalist, Charlie Corbett took his first, tentative steps into the corporate world in 2012. And was appalled by what he found there: a confusing and nonsensical place, where common sense and basic humanity had been replaced by jargon, dehumanising language and soulless dictates from faceless rule-makers. A world where senior management was entirely absent from the shop floor - replaced by indecipherable emails from HR - and where people spoke in esoteric corporate riddles, believing that sounding clever was more productive than speaking clearly and with purpose. He found people spent more time defending their personal fiefdoms, or massaging their careers, than helping to build a successful business alongside their peers. This book is a result of five years at Charlie's consultancy, Bullfinch Media, where he helped convince executives that speaking plainly, thoughtfully, and behaving with humanity, is the best way to win business, boost morale and advance careers. This is a step-by-step guidebook to surviving and thriving in the modern work place: from how to write well, speak publicly and stand out in your job, to crafting compelling communications, making the best of social media and handling the press.

Corporate Citizenship: The role of companies as citizens of the modern world
Private companies and multinationals have been around since the beginning of recorded history. For both good and ill they have done an immense amount to shape human culture around the world. We have just come through a period in history when communist and socialist societies tried to eliminate or severely constrain private enterprise, but companies are now back, big time. Consequently, the question now is: `What is their role in our global economic and social system?' Providing goods and services and making a profit for their shareholders are important, but in that process, they also have responsibilities to their stakeholders and the wider society. Companies are in fact corporate citizens of society; just as individuals are private citizens. They exercise certain rights but also have profound responsibilities. They have to step up as good citizens and use their power and influence to help humanity face the challenges of the future. This book discusses why and how they must do that as a step towards learning to live with modern capitalism.

Midnight's Grandchildren: How Young Indians are Disrupting the World's Largest Democracy
While the west has experienced multiple post-war economic, social and political revolutions, India by contrast has had two distinct moments of transformation in the past century: Independence in 1947 and the economic liberalisation that began in 1991. Midnight's Grandchildren are the offspring of India's second social and economic revolution. India's millennial generation, coming of age post-1991, have grown up in a world of opportunity and relative abundance. Many institutions - family, marriage, workplace, and brands - are being disrupted. Great tension exists as a new generation breaks barriers and seeks to find its place. This book captures an important, transformative moment in India's development. It includes interviews with young Indians who articulate both their optimism and the struggle to find relevant new identities. Managers and recruiters speak about the changes in the workplace and the challenges and opportunities of harnessing India's so-called demographic dividend. Entrepreneurs, brand owners and marketers discuss the role of brands in cementing identities in a world changing rapidly where loyalty has little meaning. Midnight's Grandchildren explains for a business audience the significance of the arrival in the workforce of a generation of millennials as both disruptors of the old order and engine of India's future economic potential. It is of use for professionals and educators wanting to engage this vitally important group of young people.

The Respectful Manager: The Guide to Successful Management
Many people are confused by mixed messages from their managers. About 85% of the pool of managers are malevolent, who do not care about the organisation and use the structure for their own needs of power and control. We know what a good manager looks like, but in complex social interactions within organisations this can be confused with the manipulations of the malevolent managers, from CEO to the lowest grade supervisor. The Respectful Manager: The Guide to Successful Management is about the application of the Executive Impression Management type of the Respectful Manager, derived from new ground-breaking research regarding fraudster managers. It explains clearly and precisely what a good manager looks like and behaves like with their co-workers. In this book, the foundations are laid to understand and recognise a Respectful Manager. This is critical for management training purposes and for managerial recruitment and promotion procedures. For those looking at increasing profitability, increasing competitive edge, and engaging their workforce in fulfilling work, the Respectful Manager is the key. This book is a must read for those who aspire to management roles, including senior management, as a guide to the very best practice in the field.

The Challenge Culture: Why the Most Successful Organizations Run on Pushback
'The Challenge Culture is a must-read for employers and employees alike, and promises to get ideas for long-term success percolating.' -- Robert Kraft, chairman and CEO of the Kraft Group 'Nigel's career, vision and humanity are very refreshing' -- Claude Littner, former Chief Executive of Tottenham Hotspur and author of Single-Minded: My Life in Business Challenge is essential for survival and sustained success in today's volatile world. We live in an era when successful organisations can fail in a flash. But they can cope with change and thrive by creating a culture that supports positive pushback: questioning everything without disrespecting anyone. Nigel Travis has forty years of experience as a leader in large and successful organizations, as well as those facing existential crisis - such as Blockbuster as it dawdled in the face of the Netflix challenge. In his ten years as CEO and Chairman of Dunkin' Brands, Travis fine-tuned his ideas about the challenge culture and perfected the practices required to build it. He argues that the best way for organisations to succeed in today's environment is to embrace challenge and encourage pushback, rather than reject them. Everyone - from the newest recruit to the senior leader - must be given the freedom to speak up and question the status quo, must learn how talk in a civil way about difficult issues, and should be encouraged to debate strategies and tactics - although always in the spirit of shared purpose. How else will new ideas emerge? How else can organisations steadily improve? Through colourful story-telling, with many examples from his own experiences - including his leadership in turning around the fear-ridden culture of Leyton Orient Football Club -Travis shows how to establish a culture that embraces challenge, achieves exceptional results, and ensures a prosperous future. PRAISE FOR THE CHALLENGE CULTURE: 'Nigel Travis has hit the nail on the head. Collective brilliance can only come from challenge and he proves this throughout his own leadership journey. Entertaining, edifying and exactly right.' -- Manley Hopkinson FRSA FRGS, author of Compassionate Leadership Women, especially young women, in today's world need to understand the importance of challenging authority and speaking up to share their point of view. The Challenge Culture brilliantly explains how to do it. (Nicole Lapin, author of Boss Bitch and Rich Bitch) 'A must read for all people leading organizations in these turbulent times!' (Larry Bossidy, former chairman and CEO of Honeywell International, coauthor of Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done) 'This book not only takes you inside [Nigel's] businesses, but inside the mind that challenged them to thrive. If you can use 20% of what he's suggesting, you'll be ahead of the game. Use 40% and you can blow the doors off.' (Mark Goldstein, former chief marketing officer of BBDO Worldwide) 'Dissent is not disloyalty but can be the spark for innovation and the safeguard for integrity. ... Conformity kills creativity and subverts justice and The Challenge Culture is the antidote to a contagion of conformity across sectors.' (Jeffrey A. Sonnenfeld, Lester Crown Professor of Leadership Practice, Yale School of Management)
