How To Have A Good Day: The Essential Toolkit for a Productive Day at Work and Beyond
In How to Have a Good Day, economist and former McKinsey partner Caroline Webb shows readers how to use recent findings from behavioral economics, psychology, and neuroscience to transform our approach to everyday working life. Advances in these behavioral sciences are giving us ever better understanding of how our brains work, why we make the choices we do, and what it takes for us to be smart and savvy. But it's not always been easy to see how to apply these insights in the workplace - until now. In How to Have a Good Day, Webb explains how three big scientific ideas can help us be at our best every day. She shows us exactly how to apply this science to our plans, tasks and conversations, in step-by-step guidance that allows us to: set better priorities; make the hours go further; turn every interaction into a success; strengthen our personal impact; be resilient in the face of setbacks; and sustain our energy over the course of the day. Webb teaches us how to be at our best under pressure, and gives us specific tools to tackle common work challenges - from conflict with colleagues, to dull meetings and packed inboxes. Filled with stories of people who have used Webb's insights to boost their job satisfaction and performance at work, How to Have a Good Day is the book so many people wanted when they finished Nudge, Blink and Thinking Fast and Slow, and were looking for practical ways to apply this fascinating science to their own lives and careers. A remarkable and much needed book, How to Have a Good Day firmly delivers on its promise, showing us all how to have a lifetime of good days.

Creative Leadership: Contexts and Prospects
There has never been a better time to study, practice, and experience creative leadership. In the fluid and turbulent economic and social environments of the 21st century, creative leadership has become a cardinal force in the creation and evolution of adaptive organizations. In the last two decades, organizational science has witnessed a rapid increase in the number of studies on the nature, skills, and processes of creative leadership. The resulting accumulated body of knowledge has remained for many years dispersed and fragmented across multiple strands of organizational research. This volume seeks to foster the cross-fertilization of scientific knowledge and insight by bringing together authoritative contributions from leading scholars whose work is located in different strands of creative leadership research. Creative Leadership: Contexts and Prospects builds upon a recently introduced multi-context framework that integrates metatheoretically three conceptualizations of creative leadership found in the extant literature: Facilitating employee creativity; Directing the materialization of a leader's creative vision; and Integrating heterogeneous creative contributions. These three conceptualizations reflect essential differences in the enactment of creative leadership across various collaborative contexts of creative work, and they underlie the intellectual efforts of different research strands. The collection of chapters in Creative Leadership: Contexts and Prospects offers the latest thinking on creative leadership in facilitative, directive, and integrative contexts, and a stimulating set of ideas for crafting the next generation of nuanced theories and empirical studies in the field.

Bumblebee Nation: The hidden story of the new Swedish model
Bumblebee noun A large, hairy, social bee. With its heavy body and tiny wings, it seems the bumblebee should not be able to fly - yet it does so with grace and efficiency. It has a burly body with tiny wings... and yet it flies. Sweden can be compared to a bumblebee, seeming to defy the laws of economic gravity. High wages, strong unions, generous welfare and regulated markets - how can Sweden claim to be a dream location for business, while coming out on top of rankings for childcare, work-life balance, equality and the environment? Bumblebee Nation investigates the Swedish economic model and asks what makes it tick today. Based on more than 70 interviews with leading figures in industry and politics, the book is a journey through Swedish society, examining the various bumblebee features that set it apart from other nations. This book challenges our assumptions about Sweden, revealing hidden features that help to generate wealth. David Crouch is a former Financial Times journalist. Tina Axelsson is a Swedish photographer and filmmaker.

WorkInspired: How to Build an Organization Where Everyone Loves to Work
A Highest Rated CEO who has transformed his organization into a billion-dollar company and a Top Place to Work shows leaders how truly prioritizing employees isn't just good for employees-it's good for business. Imagine a company where everyone loves to work, where employees feel not just satisfied but truly cared for, respected, and energized. Think of the impact this would have on recruitment, retention, customer satisfaction, innovation, and overall performance. Aron Ain, the award-winning CEO of Kronos, a global provider of workforce management and human capital management cloud solutions, believes that anything is possible when people are inspired. By embracing employee development and engagement as a growth strategy, Ain transformed his company's culture and built a billion-dollar business. This book takes leaders and managers inside Kronos's highly admired WorkInspired culture, showing them the surprisingly simple rules they can follow to replicate that success. This inspiring guide reveals the best practices that have earned Kronos distinctions on coveted lists, such as Glassdoor's 100 Best Places to Work, Fortune's 100 Best Companies to Work For, Forbes's America's Best Employers, and the Boston Globe's Top Places to Work. These best practices include: *overcommunicating and truth-telling*trusting your people (again and again) and keeping them safe*holding managers accountable for being great at what they do*allowing employees flexible schedules and open vacation time*challenging your people to put the company out of business with innovative products *welcoming back boomerang employees*empowering the next generation workforce Many executives talk about how their people are their greatest asset. Ain challenges leaders to walk the talk and put people first, whether they oversee a team of five or an organization of 500,000. When they do, employees won't be the only ones who thank them. Customers and shareholders will, too. This is what it means to WorkInspired.

Belong: Find Your People, Create Community, and Live a More Connected Life
It's the great paradox of the digital age, what Radha Agrawal calls community confusion - the internet connects us to hundreds, thousands, even millions of people, and yet we feel more isolated than ever, with 1 in 4 Americans saying they have zero friends to confide in. Where are our people? The answer is found in Belong, a highly energetic and beautifully illustrated guide to discovering where and with whom you fit. After suffering her own bout of community confusion, Agrawal embarked on a journey that ultimately resulted in cofounding Day breaker, a transformative phenomenon where thousands of people get up at the crack of dawn, meet in event spaces in 22 cities around the world, and dance. Now she's distilled her experience for finding meaningful connections into a two-step process. The first step is GOING IN. This includes determining what we want in a friend and community and what we offer, becoming intentional about our relationships, gauging the type of energy we emit and respond to, and understanding how we do - or don't - show up for others. Then comes GOING OUT - how to find a few special friends who feed our soul; or how to find a fully engaged group with similar business, artistic, and social aims; or both. Connectedness is the most significant factor in human happiness - Belong is a creative blueprint for bringing this most important dimension back into our lives.

Fully Alive: Using the Lessons of the Amazon to Live Your Mission in Business and Life
Fully Alive tells the story of an astoundingly successful young entrepreneur's immersion in Amazonian indigenous spirituality, its life-changing impact on him, and how he integrated the lessons he learned to build a successful, socially responsible company, live a purposeful life, and make a difference in the world. Building a start-up is like being thrust into the middle of the Amazon rainforest: living every day on the edge of your comfort zone, vulnerable to the unexpected challenges constantly being thrown your way, and constantly shifting to meet daily demands and do everything and anything you can to survive, let alone thrive. Vulnerable, raw, and deeply transparent, Fully Alive reveals powerful tools and lessons that can teach all of us how to grow toward and beyond our personal edges, no matter our circumstances. Tyler Gage shares his spiritual adventures and the business savvy that helped him create RUNA, a pioneering organization that weaves together the seemingly divergent worlds of Amazonian traditions and modern business, demonstrating how we can dig deeper to bring greater meaning and purpose to our personal and professional pursuits. From suburban youth to immersion in the Amazon to entrepreneurial success, Tyler's journey clearly shows that passion and opportunity can be found in the most unexpected places. Captivated by a rare Amazonian tea leaf called guayusa that had never been commercially produced, Tyler started RUNA to partner with the indigenous people of Ecuador to share its energy and its message with the world. Using the spiritual teachings, lessons, and healing traditions of the Amazon as his guide, Tyler built RUNA from a scrappy start-up into a thriving, multimillion-dollar company that has become one of the fastest-growing beverage companies in the United States. With the help of investors such as Channing Tatum, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Olivia Wilde, RUNA has created a sustainable source of income for more than 3,000 farming families in Ecuador who sustainably grow guayusa in the rainforest. Simultaneously, RUNA has built a rapidly scaling nonprofit organization that is working to create a new future for trade in the Amazon based on respectful exchange and healing, not exploitation and greed. Practical tools and lessons are woven throughout the story of Gage's successes and failures, offering guidance on how to relate to obstacles as teachers and how to accomplish our personal and professional goals in the often uncertain circumstances we find ourselves in.

The Rules of Success: How Managers Can Overcome Setbacks and Grow
This book is about the rules of long-term professional success. The international study on which this book is based suggests that success is, above all, one thing: the quest for a combination of happiness and satisfaction, coupled with economic independence. However, the data also suggest that the definition of success varies significantly from person to person. And furthermore, it seems like success is not an objective quality, but at least partly it results from a process of comparison with a peer group - which means in turn that the selection of your peer group is crucial for your perceived level of success in life. The author argues that, in fact, certain success factors do exist and that they are fewer in number than one might think. But above all, if we look thoroughly at the lives of truly successful people, it soon becomes apparent that success primarily has to do with overcoming setbacks, failure and crisis. This ability to effectively process adversity is also known as resilience. Because of its criticality for success this concept is discussed in greater depth using the FiRE model (Factors improving Resilience Effectiveness) as a structure. This concept has been developed by the author through many years of research. It differs from existing models due to its holistic approach including analysing different disciplines of science such as biology, medicine, brain research, epigenetics, sociology, psycho-neuro-immunology etc.

The Barcelona Way: How to Create a High-performance Culture
In The Barcelona Way, sports psychologist Damian Hughes reveals the key principles that have defined FC Barcelona's success and shows how the DNA of a winning team can be successfully applied to any working environment, with dramatic results. 'A powerful book on the important principles of creating a high-performing culture.' Eddie Jones, England RFU Head Coach FC Barcelona are one of the most successful football clubs in the world. What makes FCB unique is the winning culture that has delivered sustained success for much longer than the customary four-year cycle of an elite team. Lying at the very heart of their success is how they deal with people and the care and attention given to the environment in which those people are nurtured: practices which are of equal relevance to all organizations trying to channel the activities of their talented individuals for the corporate good. The key principles are: Big Picture, Arc of Change, Repetition, Cultural Architects, Authentic Leadership. These are the same principles that are adhered to in successful working environments across any industry. Drawing on interviews with key architects of the culture, as well as his own extensive experience as a sports psychologist working with leading sports and business institutions, Damian Hughes provides unique insights into the crucial issues confronting the modern corporate environment, and shows how the lessons learnt at FC Barcelona can also be applied to develop your own winning culture.

Don't Leave On-the-Job Training to Chance. People become experts at their job by learning while doing. But when your employees need to develop a new skill, how do you ensure they all receive the same experience if a trainer isn't leading and guiding them? Most on-the-job training programmes leave learners to sink or swim with whomever is overseeing their work. One worker may excel with a mentor who allows her to take charge of what she learns-while a second may get someone who uses the opportunity to offload paperwork and other administrative tasks. Learning While Working shows you how to provide the focus and direction needed to track on-the-job progress and build a pipeline of better-skilled workers. Author Paul Smith combines real insight into building a structured program for project managers at the Waldinger Corporation with in-depth interviews of experienced learning and development professionals. Discover how a well-designed structured on-the-job training program can be your company's talent development answer to a Swiss Army knife. This book doesn't prescribe a one-size-fits-all solution. Instead, it will help you prepare a tailored, sustainable structured on-the-job training program for your organization. Included are practical tips to set defined roles for the learner, mentor, and trainer; create a tracking tool to clearly document skill growth; and ensure organizational learning gets put to use. On-the-job training won't replace all employee development happening in the classroom, online, or through peer sharing of best practices. But by bringing order to these often disconnected and siloed efforts, you can fortify the learning structure that your organization needs to succeed.

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.

Leading From Behind: Turn anxiety into courage
There is no way back. Change is everywhere - in society, politics, business - and it is turbulent. Existing structures are being dismantled and new ways of competing (and collaborating) are being formed. The only option is to be adaptive and to create the best from what is possible. This book tackles the change that every organization is subjected to, by offering a different leadership style. Its aim is to get the best from everybody, which requires a genuine people-centric approach. But it also involves shifting towards an agile way of working, where accountability and resources are delegated to people deep in the organization so that they can focus on customer centricity, innovation, and value creation. Contrarian but relevant, this book is essential reading for business leaders and managers who are seeking a better future for their organizations.
