The Leader Who Had No Title: A Modern Fable on Real Success in Business and in Life

Robin Sharma believes there are certain skills and attitudes that allow you to rise to extraordinary success. In his powerful new parable, he offers a story designed to help people from all walks of life to achieve great things. Blake DiFranco is down on his luck, trying to make ends meet. His job is unsatisfying, and he is disenchanted with the world around him. One day, an enigmatic friend offers him a life-altering opportunity: spend a day studying with a mysterious group of teachers and learn the secrets of limitless success. The next morning, he embarks on a journey to discover the true meaning of the LWT philosophy - Lead Without a Title. He is ushered through the lessons of the four teachers: Anna, a maid who shows him that every job can be done with passion; Ty, a surfer who reminds him how important it is to rise to the riskiest challenges; Jackson, a former CEO who shows him the value of relationships; and Jet, a masseur who proves that greatness begins within. Blake's world changes as the teachers make him realize his own potential to achieve greater things than he'd ever imagined. The book is packed with real-world lessons and inspiring exercises that will help any business person realize extraordinary results. Sharma distils over fifteen years of working with high-performers to deliver real-world strategies and foster a winning mindset. Here are formulas that will build success amidst times of deep change and will help readers to make positive changes both at work and at home.

Rebel Talent: Why it Pays to Break the Rules at Work and in Life
'Great stories, great science, and great practical advice about how, when, and why to break the rules' Angela Duckworth, international bestselling author of Grit In Rebel Talent, award-winning Harvard Business School professor and behavioural scientist Francesca Gino shows us why happiest and most successful among us are those who break the rules and how we can all do it more. The world's best chef. The pilot who landed his plane on a river. The magician who made history. The computer scientist who changed animated films forever. What do they all have in common? They are all rebels. Francesca Gino has been studying rebellion and conformity for more than fifteen years. She has discovered that when we mindlessly follow rules and norms rather than constructively rebelling against them, we become less happy and less successful in every area of our lives. While rebels may seem disruptive, they are ultimately good for business: their passion, drive, curiosity and creativity can raise organizations to a new level. When we break the rules, we fix our lives.

What Anyone Can Do: How Surrounding Yourself with the Right People Will Drive Change, Opportunity, and Personal Growth
Most of us don't seek advice or reach out to others for help very easily. In part, it's because we're conditioned to see life as an individual endeavor rather than a team sport. Or because we believe that asking for help makes us look weak or incapable. We regard self-help as by-yourself-help. News flash: no one in the history of the world has ever achieved any level of happiness or success totally by themselves. In his 1976 book The Long Run Solution, Joe Henderson suggested that becoming truly accomplished at running (or at anything) doesn't typically require us to perform superhuman feats. In fact, success is frequently realized by those who simply do the things anyone can do that most of us never will. In What Anyone Can Do, with the help of Leo Bottary's Year of the Peer podcasts guests (and playful illustrations by Ryan Foland), you'll discover that if you surround yourself with the right people, you'll do the things anyone can do far more often. And when you do that, you and the people around you will realize more of what you want out of business and life. It's that simple. The Power of Peers (2016) made a strong case for how and why formal peer groups are so effective. This book steps outside the formal peer group arena to examine all the important relationships we have in our lives (parents, teachers, spouses, mentors, children, mentees, etc.) and provides a practical approach and specific framework for harnessing their power for your benefit (and theirs). It's what anyone can do. You're anyone, right?

Your Architecture Career: How to Build a Successful Professional Life
Master the business side of architecture with advice from an expert. In Your Architecture Career, Gary Unger provides tips and guidance to students, interns, architects, and firm owners to help them understand and master the business side of architecture and interior design. Students in school are not taught to manage process, projects, and clients--the emphasis is on design. However, most graduates will not finish their careers as designers. Rather, their focus will be on marketing, programming, project management, cost estimating, rendering, virtual reality, drawing documentation, specifications, workplace strategy, and construction administration. Gary Unger expertly describes the creative aspects of these disciplines and the considerable value they bring to a firm. In order to accurately represent how an architecture firm successfully operates, Gary stresses the importance of teamwork. With project teams made up of architects, engineers, realtors, building owners, contractors, furniture dealers, and more, it is important to note that a project's success is measured by how well handoffs of information are executed both inside a firm as well as from firm to firm. Spanning a wide variety of topics, chapters include: Completing architectural school Deciding on a career path Landing your first job Building your reputation Managing handoffs RFPs and proposals Reassessing your career Starting your own firm Whether you're a student about to graduate or a seasoned professional, Your Architecture Career is an invaluable resource for the business side of architecture.

This book will help you change your mindset and your behaviour! Chris Tooley, CEO, LycaMobile A must read for developing a resilient mindset when it comes to achieving your personal and work goals. Professor Sir Cary Cooper, CBE, ALLIANCE Manchester Business School, University of Manchester Powerful thinking with a practical toolkit. An inspiring and encouraging read for business and life. Pete Sayburn, Co-Founder, Market Gravity & Partner, Deloitte This business book is great for leaders, middle managers and entrepreneurs interested in the following categories: PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT MOTIVATION GOAL SETTING MENTAL TOUGHNESS & RESILIENCE What's stopping you from reaching your peak? We all aspire to succeed in work and life. According to Abraham Maslow, once our basic needs such as food and shelter are taken care of, we want to fulfil our potential, to be the best possible version of ourselves. So what prevents us from achieving this? Some of us are beaten by the setbacks and challenges that life inevitably scatters across our path. For others, the fear of failure or lack of confidence can cause us to retreat into our comfort zone and avoid risk. In short, we simply give up and reconcile ourselves to disappointment. In work, this can lead to demotivation and disengagement. Whatever inhibits us from fulfilling our potential, there is now a remarkable groundswell of scientific research from the disparate fields of sports psychology, positive psychology and neuroscience. Elite athletes such as tennis player Johanna Konta have increasingly been exposed to this science. This has helped them persist in pursuit of their goals with passion and determination and has helped them bounce back from the inevitable setbacks that they encounter. Ultimately, it helps them succeed. The great news is that this is applicable to you - the science can be applied to anybody. You don't have to be in search of sporting glory - if you simply want to achieve in work and in life, then these tools will help you. Using the tools offered in this book will help you, like an elite athlete, build your own mental toughness personal development programme and enable you to get ready and persist towards achieving your goals, whatever life throws at you. Happy Reading! Please do share your thoughts with us.

Good Thinking, and Bad: Using the Science of Cognition to Make Better Decisions
We can all be smarter and make better decisions. Advances in Cognitive Science (thinking about thinking) provide us with insights which enable Good Thinking and teach us how to avoid Bad Thinking. This short, entertaining, and well-structured book makes these discoveries accessible to everyone. Read this book and get smarter, fast. Fun. An engaging writing style with a treasure trove of anecdotes and fascinating facts to keep the reader interested. Smart. Clearly explaining recent cognitive science breakthroughs. In a world where the nerds have the advantage, the evidence says Good Thinking leads to substantial rewards. Practical. Explaining how people think in different contexts and offering practical solutions and tools you can use every day. A scientifically-robust handbook for anyone who wants to improve the effectiveness of their thinking. Good Thinking, and Bad is a mental tool box to enable and empower the reader's thinking. It is written from the position that everyone can be smarter and make better decisions with a little help. The positive message that runs throughout the book is that meta-cognition discoveries are not negative `thinking fallacies'. Instead, they are Thinking Paradigms which have evolved over millennia. They have at least as many valuable advantages as they do subtle disadvantages. It features new thinking in the science of meta-cognition (thinking about thinking) which provides insights to enable Good Thinking. It also teaches us how to spot, and to stop, Bad Thinking. The book is built around a practical decision-making model which the author has developed. This is based on extensive research and his experience as a senior management consultant. The structure of the book exploits proven education and training techniques to make these interesting ideas digestible and easy to retain.

Don't let that happen--don't you deserve to realize your goals? Exactly Where to Start gives you the kick in the pants and the practical plan you need to stand up, step up, and make it happen.

The Globalization of Executive Search: Professional Services Strategy and Dynamics in the Contemporary World
Executive search, headhunting, is now one of the archetypal new knowledge intensive professional services, as well as a labor market intermediary bound up with globalization. In this book, the authors examine the key actors in the process of executive search globalization - leading global firms - and offer an interpretation of the forces producing the contemporary organizational strategies of global executive search. The Globalization of Executive Search documents the forms of institutional work that have legitimated the role of executive in elite labor markets and created demand for the services of global firms; this exposes not only the changing geographies of executive search, but also how executive search has established itself as a new knowledge intensive professional service. The authors reveal how the globalization of executive search is exemplary of the processes by which a range of new knowledge intensive professional services have come to be globally recognized, approaching the heart of contemporary capitalism.

Insight: The Power of Self-Awareness in a Self-Deluded World
Research shows that self-awareness is the meta-skill of the 21st century - the foundation for high performance, smart choices, and lasting relationships. Unfortunately, we are remarkably poor judges of ourselves and how we come across, and it's rare to get candid, objective feedback from colleagues, employees, and even friends and family. We can ALL learn to be more self-aware. Integrating hundreds of studies with her own research and work in the Fortune 500 world, organizational psychologist Dr Tasha Eurich shatters conventional assumptions about what it takes to truly know ourselves - like why introspection isn't a bullet train to insight, how experience is the enemy of self-knowledge, and just how far others will go to avoid telling us the truth about ourselves. Through stories of people who've made dramatic self-awareness gains, she offers surprising secrets, techniques and strategies to help readers do the same - and therefore improve their work performance, career satisfaction, leadership potential, relationships, and more. At a time when self-awareness matters more than ever, Insight is the essential playbook for surviving and thriving in an unaware world.

Work Stronger: Habits for More Energy, Less Stress, and Higher Performance at Work
As author and high performance coach Pete Leibman demonstrates in this eye-opening book, stronger hours (not longer hours) are the key to feeling and performing your best over the long term. Work Stronger provides a step-by-step, science-based approach for increasing your energy, decreasing your stress, and taking your performance to a higher level. This book also features practical tips and powerful insights from private interviews that Leibman conducted with more than twenty-five prominent leaders.

By adopting the brief moments of discomfort, or BMD method, you will soon understand that nothing in life is an insurmountable challenge, only a series of small, uncomfortable tests that can easily be overcome. Once you have used Farrah's techniques to transform your fear into bite-size, manageable pieces, you'll be able to take on anything. In fact, in time, you'll even begin to enjoy these moments. When you explore your discomfort zone, you'll find that anything is possible.

The Stress Test Every Business Needs: A Capital Agenda for Confidently Facing Digital Disruption, Difficult Investors, Recessions and Geopolitical Threats
Future-proof your business today for stronger performance tomorrow The Stress Test Every Business Needs A Capital Agenda for Confidently Facing Digital Disruption, Difficult Investors, Recessions and Geopolitical Threats provides a comprehensive approach to creating value and flexibility in an increasingly volatile business environment that presents both great risks and opportunities every day. The authors extend the banking stress test concept to a company's Capital Agenda -- how executives manage capital, execute transactions and apply corporate finance tools to strategic and operational decisions. Having a static Capital Agenda, however appropriate for your current market position, is not enough in today's uncertain world. Long-term success comes from building resilience into each element and in the way those elements interact. The book uses a broader definition of business stress that includes traditional macroeconomic and geopolitical risks, as well as technological disruption, hostile takeovers and activist shareholders. Companies that make poor strategic decisions or underperform operationally will likely find themselves facing great stress. And that stress is symmetric; threats come from downside risks and from missed opportunities. The chapters address the how and why of essential issues such as: Formulating corporate strategy in a digital world Pre-empting activist shareholders Restoring distressed companies to operational and financial health Ensuring effective collaboration among strategy, finance and operations Getting the most out of your advisors Proactively managing intrinsic value Rigorously allocating capital across the enterprise Acquiring and divesting for optimum value Syncing financing decisions with business strategy and capital market conditions Incorporating tax planning throughout the Capital Agenda Liberating excess cash with leading working capital management practices Aligning strategic goals and metrics to reach your company's full potential Companies that develop strategy and set operational priorities with a balanced Capital Agenda are best positioned to control their own destiny. The Stress Test Every Business Needs provides a roadmap to future-proof your business today for stronger performance tomorrow.
