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.

Lab Rats: Why Modern Work Makes People Miserable
Guardian's Best Non-Fiction, 2019 The Tablet's Highlights of 2019 Personality tests. Team-building exercises. Forced Fun. Desktop surveillance. Open-plan offices. Acronyms. Diminishing job security. Hot desking. Pointless perks. Hackathons. If any of the above sound familiar, welcome to the modern economy. In this hilarious, but deadly serious book, bestselling author Dan Lyons looks at how the world of work has slowly morphed from one of unions and steady career progression to a dystopia made of bean bags and unpaid internships. And that's the 'good' jobs... With the same wit that made Disrupted an international bestseller, Lyons shows how the hypocrisy of Silicon Valley has now been exported globally to a job near you. Even low-grade employees are now expected to view their jobs with a cult-like fervour, despite diminishing prospects of promotion. From the gig economy to the new digital oligarchs, Lyons deliciously roasts the new work climate, while asking what can be done to recoup some sanity and dignity for the expanding class of middle-class serfs.

The Confidence Project: Your plan for personal growth, happiness and success
Often the only thing separating successful people from the crowd is the beliefs that they have running around inside their heads and their innate self-confidence. But this book isn't about promoting unrealistic positive thinking - it's a book that helps you understand the complex psychology of our beliefs, our assumptions, opinions, values, attitudes, judgements, biases and delusions. Some of us overestimate ourselves and are overconfident or even unwittingly arrogant and unable to see our flaws. Others amongst us underestimate ourselves and are unaware of our full potential. The reality is the most of us overestimate ourselves in some respects and underestimate ourselves in others. This book will open your eyes, doing away with unhelpful beliefs and instilling new, more helpful beliefs about yourself and the world. Follow the practical advice within the book and you will make better decisions and be able to take action in order to fulfil your true potential. The reader of the book will: - understand why beliefs and the many thoughts we have in our heads are often the only thing that distinguish successful, confident, happy people from the crowd - learn the differences between the helpful and unhelpful beliefs running around in your head. How are some of your assumptions, values and opinions holding you back? - learn how you can change many of the beliefs you have to make them more useful to you - in both your personal and professional life, whether you're looking for a promotion or looking for love - Learn about how your natural tendencies and preferences might hinder or help your chances in life - and what you can do to choose the best path for you and you alone - Recognizing the differences between your thoughts and reality, you will make better decisions and be able to map out a plan of action to help you fulfil your true potential.

Company of One: Why Staying Small is the Next Big Thing for Business
What if the real key to a richer and more fulfilling career was not to create and scale up a new business, but rather, to be able to work for yourself, determine your own hours and become a (highly profitable) and sustainable company of one? Suppose the better-and smarter-solution is simply to remain small? Company of One is a refreshing new approach centered on staying small and avoiding growth, for any size of business. Not as a freelancer who only gets paid on a per piece basis, and not as an entrepreneurial start-up that wants to scale up as soon as possible, but as a small business that is deliberately committed to staying that way. By staying small, you can have freedom to pursue more meaningful pleasures in life, and avoid the headaches that result from dealing with employees, long meetings, or worrying about expansion. Company of One introduces this unique business strategy and explains how to make it work for you, including how to generate cash flow on an ongoing basis. Paul Jarvis left the corporate world when he realized that working in a high-pressure, high-profile world was not his idea of success. Instead, he now works for himself out of his home, and lives a much more rewarding and productive life. He no longer has to contend with an environment that constantly demands more productivity, more output and more growth. In Company of One, Jarvis explains how you can do the same, including planning to set up, determining desired revenues and keeping clients happy, and of course, doing all this on your own.

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.

Women and Careers: Transnational Studies in Public Policy and Employment Equity
The unifying theme of Women and Careers is women's educational and employment success, with the objective of profiling supportive public policy in global contexts from Atlantic Canada to Western Europe, Australia and China. It takes up the career processes of women from marginalized groups who have been underrepresented historically: women who are the first generation to graduate from university in both Atlantic Canada (New Brunswick) and China and rural women from the eastern most Canadian province (Newfoundland and Labrador). It examines the situation of marginalized Protestant women in Belfast, Northern Ireland, who benefit from a European Union program that supports their political and social involvement in an economically underdeveloped region and previously unimagined in a country once wrought by sectarian violence. A policy analysis of an Atlantic Canadian region after the dominant forestry industry leaves takes up policy options and women's possible agency should economic support return for small business networks and social enterprise, e.g., credit unions, food and social housing cooperatives. Proactive employment equity programs in Finland's Applied Science Institute and Switzerland's Forestry Institute provide cutting edge examples of diversity and inclusion policies in education and academia. A comparative study of Canada and Australia of two leading public service employers illustrates incremental outcomes for women managers and professionals but raises the ultimate question of the pace and necessary political will required to remove barriers to gender equality in countries with major gender inequities. Women and Careers examines a series of institutional contexts transnationally and the impact of policies, programs and economic re-structuring on careers outcomes. It displays the latest research on the topic and will be of interest both to students at an advanced level, academics, reflective practitioners, and diversity managers. It addresses the topics with regard to women's education and employment and will interest researchers, academics and policymakers in the fields of women's employment and career studies, diversity programs, organization studies, development policy, gender studies and globalization.

Open Your Eyes and Lead: Hardship and Wisdom Shape the Best Leaders in Life
An alarming pattern has emerged in our modern workplace; employees have little confidence in their leaders. The unprecedented overlapping and colliding of priorities, combined with fast and furious deadlines have wreaked havoc and caused lack of engagement. Open Your Eyes and LEAD is a call-to-action, providing leaders with the development opportunity to make smarter decisions with better precision. In workplaces across the globe, people are asked to deliver quicker, better, faster, and cheaper results. However, when we are rushed for results, we tend to skim-coat our actions, leading to diluted, lower-quality efforts and mediocre outcomes. Those who are perpetually involved in fast and high-pressure situations feel tired, stressed, and become disengaged. Some even compromise their values by taking the low road instead of the high road just to get ahead or to stay ahead. Leaders who model integrity, fortitude, and nimbleness consistently create value and yield an impact that is far-reaching. Putting more emphasis on creating a positive culture allows for increased collaboration, creativity, and efficiency. When people are excited, motivated, and engaged in what they do - when they open their eyes as they lead, the result is a chain reaction of smarter decisions with better precision. Open Your Eyes and LEAD! shows readers how to become this kind of positive force in the world, and how to balance and manage the omnipresent tensions as we strive for leadership excellence. This book is uniquely situated to be embraced by different audiences - those searching to gain a higher level of self-confidence, understanding, and personal advancement so that they can become mindful leaders in their own lives; current and would-be leaders in the employer arena who aspire to leadership excellence; and both undergraduate and graduate students who are training to be our world's newest leaders.

At the age of fifty-two, after selling the boutique hotel company he founded and ran for twenty-four years, Conley joined Airbnb as Head of Global Hospitality and Strategy. Though rich with experience, the industry veteran lacked the digital fluency of his twenty-something colleagues. He quickly discovered that he'd been hired as a teacher and mentor, but was also in many ways a student and intern. What emerged is the secret to thriving as a midlife worker in today's world: learning to marry wisdom and experience with curiosity, a beginner's mind and a willingness to evolve. Igniting a bold, urgent conversation about age and ageism in the workplace, Conley liberates the term 'elder' from the stigma of 'elderly', and reveals the value of wisdom that can only be accrued through years on the planet. Wisdom at Work will teach you how to be indispensable in the second half of your working life. 'As more people live in good health for longer they are asking themselves what they should do with this new stage of life. In this marvellous book Chip Conley gives them a great answer - rewire don't retire. The Modern Elder is about combining a youthfulness in later life with the maturity and wisdom of experience' Andrew Scott, co-author of The 100 Year Life Chip Conley is a New York Times bestselling author, hospitality entrepreneur, and leader at the forefront of the sharing economy. At age 26, he founded Joie de Vivre Hospitality and turned it into the second largest boutique hotel brand in the U.S. Chip is now the Strategic Advisor for Hospitality and Leadership at Airbnb. He is the recipient of hospitality's highest honor, the Pioneer Award. ---------------------------------------- 'This is ultimately a book about how we can develop deeper connections, disrupt how we think about teaching and learning, and make more meaningful contributions in our lives and our careers. With stories, questions, and strategies, Chip shares his heart and wisdom on every page. This is exactly what we need right now! '- Brene Brown, Ph.D., LMSW, Author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller, Braving the Wilderness 'An engaging, timely exploration of how to bring more wisdom into our work lives. Chip Conley has lived it, and here he teaches you what it takes to find more of it' Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Originals, Give and Take, and Option B with Sheryl Sandberg 'I love the idea that society needs more Modern Elders who offer generosity without an agenda. Chip Conley's articulation of the growing need of wisdom and emotional intelligence in a world obsessed with speed and digital intelligence is spot-on! Every young company could use some wisdom insurance ' Marshall Goldsmith, Thinkers 50 World's #1 Executive Coach, #6 Most Influential Business Thinker 2017

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.

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.
