Convince Them in 90 Seconds or Less: How to Connect in Business
Boothman's message is central, and in this current business climate, critical: whether selling, interviewing, or motivating a team, success depends on convincing the other person-and the quickest and best way to do that is through what he calls rapport by design. Using the science of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (built upon body language, attitude, voice, and synchronizing behavior), Boothman shows how to create a winning first impression and, within 90 seconds, a lasting trust. Then, when those 90 seconds are up, he shows how to master the people-to-people skills that are essential to an ongoing business relationship. A new chapter added just for the paperback serves as a communication primer-drawing on his years in advertising, Boothman reveals how to make your message stand out and stick in a world that's already glutted with information.

Work Happy: What Great Bosses Know
When Jill Geisler was appointed to news director of her local station at the age of 27, her senior managerial experience was limited to a high school job at a candy shop. Thirty years later, she is one of the leading consultants for managers across the country. WORK HAPPY shares what she's learned over the years, specifically, what makes good bosses great. Oftentimes, managers find themselves in the same position as Geisler did 30 years ago; they were good performers, so they were tapped to lead a team. But what made them good at their craft isn't guaranteed to make them good at helping others excel. They have managerial skill gaps, big ones, and their mistakes can hurt employees, businesses and their own careers. In WORK HAPPY, Geisler specifically addresses these skill gaps and provides managers with practical and precise research-based tools they can put to use immediately. The book is divided into three sections: What Great Bosses Know and Do; How Great Bosses Grow Great Employees; and How Great Bosses Build Great Places to Work. The chapters in each section address the various challenges that managers face in the work place and specific advice for conquering them. Chapters include: * What Employees Never Forget-and Never Forgive * Manage Yourself So You Can Lead Others * Tough Times, Tough Love; Handling Problem People and Tricky Situations * Why It Pays to be a Coach * How to Make Collaboration a Way of Life * Would Your Best People Tell Their Best Friends to Work Here? Along with the advice in each chapter, Geisler also includes quotes from real employees about great bosses and what they do so well, warnings about misapplying the book's advice, and quizzes and self-assessment tools for manager's to self-diagnose their strengths and weaknesses. In WORK HAPPY, Jill Geisler teaches managers to commiserate with challenges, laugh at absurdities and celebrate success.

Doing What Matters: How to Get Results That Make a Difference - the Revolutionary Old-School Approach
When Warren Buffett was asked why the Gillette board of directors chose Jim Kilts to be CEO, he said, “Jim made as much sense in terms of talking about business as anybody I’ve ever talked to. If you listen to Jim analyze a business situation you get absolutely no baloney. And, frankly, finding someone like that is a rarity.” There is only one CEO in recent times who has faced—and succeeded at—the extraordinary challenges of leading three major companies—Gillette, Nabisco, and Kraft—into prosperous futures by doing what matters on the fundamentals. That CEO is Jim Kilts. In this vivid first-person account he reveals his system for success that is both cutting-edge and back-to-basics. Doing What Matters—the action plan for identifying and tackling what’s important and ignoring the rest—is the key to winning in a warp-speed world where the need for revolutionary speed and decisiveness increases by the day. Kilts illustrates his ideas with colorful stories, such as “that little red razor.” A new product idea he proposed early on at Gillette, it was initially shelved because “everyone knew you couldn’t sell a red razor,” but went on to become one of Gillette’s biggest marketing successes ever. Jim Kilts’s focus on both business fundamentals and personal attributes provides the “complete package,” showing how to get results that make a difference through: • Intellectual integrity: The ability to face the unvarnished truth about yourself and your business and using what you see as the basis for action. • Generating emotional engagement and enthusiasm: Using the force of your personality and ideas to infuse people and an entire organization with a sense of purpose and mission. • Action: Gillette, with just five product lines, had over 20,000 SKUs. After studying the issue for over two years, there were still 20,000. How Kilts got Gillette off the dime to pare down the number to 7,000 almost overnight is an astonishing example of getting the rubber to meet the road—with enormous benefits to the business. • Understanding the right things through an overarching concept to frame and filter issues: For Jim Kilts it was Total Brand Value, the framework he used in the consumer products industry for achieving better, faster, and more complete results than the competition. Whether you’re CEO of a multibillion-dollar global company, the brand manager for a product, an entrepreneur starting a small business, or just beginning a career, Doing What Matters provides the practical ideas that get results—ranging from a day one action plan for starting a new job to a chorus of cheers and support to a program of total innovation that involves everyone in changes from small to “big bang.” From the Hardcover edition.

Surviving Office Politics
Lying, cheating, manipulating, conniving, backstabbing, and schmoozing. And don t forget falsifying, scheming, and even sleeping with someone. All of these go on in the workplace. And we all know someone who is engaged in using devious tactics to further their own career. If you think you can just work hard without paying attention to politics, then think again. Politics happens whether you want to admit it or not. But politicking need not always be bad. You may think that politics is something that only manipulative, self-serving types engage in. But politicking merely describes the act of scrutinising relationships and learning how to influence others more effectively. It is merely a tool. Some people will choose to influence others to further their own devious ends, while others will influence for the good of themselves and the organisation. So here is the definitive answer to engaging with office politics to further your own career in a positive fashion and deal with the Machiavellian types and pre-empt their efforts.

Uncertainty: Turning Fear and Doubt into Fuel for Brilliance
Jonathan Fields knows the risks-and potential power-of uncertainty. He gave up a six-figure income as a lawyer to make $12 an hour as a personal trainer. Then, married with a 3-month old baby, he signed a lease to launch a yoga center in the heart of New York City ...the day before 9/11. But he survived, and along the way he developed a fresh approach to transforming uncertainty, risk of loss, and exposure to judgment into catalysts for innovation, creation, and achievement. In business, art, and life, creating on a world-class level demands bold action and leaps of faith in the face of great uncertainty. But that uncertainty can lead to fear, anxiety, paralysis, and destruction. It can gut creativity and stifle innovation. It can keep you from taking the risks necessary to do great work and craft a deeply-rewarding life. And it can bring companies that rely on innovation grinding to a halt. That is, unless you know how to use it to your advantage. Fields draws on leading-edge technology, cognitive science, and ancient awareness-focusing techniques in a fresh, practical, nondogmatic way. His approach enables creativity and productivity on an entirely different level and can turn the once-tortuous journey into a more enjoyable quest.

The Little Book of Big Leverage
The quality of a person's life can be measured by their ability to solve problems - but sometimes the harder they try, the more resistant the solution becomes.It is easy to just look at the obvious, without looking at what lies beneath the surface.There are two sides to everything - the Yin and the Yang. When you integrate Eastern wisdom with Western science, you will tap into the true nature of your mind and allow it to flow.As the underlying resistance dissolves, aligning your future with what already has worked well for you in the past will allow a solution mindset to naturally emerge.The Little Book of Big Leverage will simplify and multiply your problem solving abilities by: Providing a tried and tested way to make the smallest daily changes...the best investments you could make that will pay dividends over your lifetime; sharing a rarely studied technique to tap into the fluid nature of your subconscious mind...the simplicity of which will truly amaze you; and transforming problems from obstacles to be avoided...into opportunities to be fully utilised.When you apply leverage to your thinking as nature intended, you will apply a measure of control over where you want to take your life and what you will be remembered for. You will find yourself: experiencing the force to fluidity formula that will allow you to find your path of least resistance; removing any mental fatigue to fully access the mechanisms of your mind; and discovering your psychological sweet spot where problems naturally resolve themselves.

Cranfield on Corporate Sustainability
Business schools have a special contribution to make in developing globally responsible, critical and independent-thinking future leaders and managers. In fact, the Cranfield School of Management acknowledges this as one of its important responsibilities. Its core ideology is to transform the practice of learning and create leaders who action their knowledge and become stewards of the common good. Such thinking forms the basis of this book and its theme of developing responsible and ethical leaders for next-generation enterprises. These leaders will be passionate, purposeful and responsible; their primary aim will be to make a difference in the lives of people and create sustainable value premised on sound ethical values. This book aims to provide a roadmap both for business students - the leaders of tomorrow - and for existing and engaged leaders who need support, coaching and counselling to address the challenges of the sustainability agenda. With contributions from more than thirty Cranfield faculty and associates across multiple management disciplines, the book emphasizes the need for cross-disciplinarity when confronting sustainability dilemmas. Many corporate responsibility practitioners find themselves isolated from core business issues. Conversely, many managers in traditional departments have little or no knowledge of what sustainability and corporate responsibility means to their day-to-day role. Today, there is an urgent need for learning, for conversation and for sustainability to become embedded throughout an organization's DNA. Cranfield strives to prepare its students for a work milieu that is increasingly complex, diverse, technologically interconnected, socially networked and where economic and political power shifts see emerging-market economies assuming significant global prominence. This makes for exciting challenges but also requires new mind-sets for the next generation of business men and women. Corporate responsibility, and the tough ethical and governance choices managers have to grapple with, where there are no easy answers, means that business education must embrace the stakeholder model. Leaders need to be able to negotiate their way with confidence around multiple perspectives and conflicting and common interests of stakeholders such as employees and managers, shareholders, trade unions, suppliers and civil society organisations. Business schools need to generate understanding of and sensitivity to this new and changing world of work. Today, the challenge for business schools and business itself is to establish a new maxim: the business of business is sustainable business . Cranfield on Corporate Sustainability is designed to stimulate debate about what sustainable development means for business and, therefore, on what business schools across the globe should research, teach and advise. This unique book is a manifesto for a new holistic, embedded approach to corporate sustainability management education.

Project Leadership
The bestselling first edition of this book broke new ground by focusing on the leadership aspects of project management rather than the technical. This radically revised edition is substantially reorganized, to introduce much new material and experience and bring the applications up to date. Project leaders now exist in many different types of organizations, and they and their projects extend far wider than the construction work where traditional project management began. This edition begins by explaining why the project way of working has been so widely and enthusiastically adopted, and provides new material on the role and key competences of project leaders in a wide range of different organizations. The authors provide invaluable guidance to senior managers struggling to create the context within which project work can thrive as well as be controlled. In this edition a section on 'Preparing the Ground' reflects their increased emphasis on getting projects off to the right start, with new insights into the scoping process designed to ensure all parties agree on objectives. It also demonstrates the importance of understanding the organizational and political factors involved if the project is to succeed in business terms. Part III shows how to handle the issues that arise at each stage of the project's life including a whole new section on the critical process of project team start up. The final section contains a thought-provoking 'action summary' and a guide to further sources of information and development. Project leadership and the project way of working has moved on. This book will provide both a conceptual framework and a set of practical tools for all those who find themselves permanently or occasionally in the project leader role, as well as an invaluable guide to setting up and maintaining project activity.

Play Nicely!: Best Behaviour in Business
Whether we're a state leader, CEO or the office tea maker, there is still a child in all of us, latent and ever-ready to emerge. This might be in the form of bad behaviour (answering back, calling names, telling lies, showing off, being greedy etc) or by simply feeling wounded, sulky, disempowered or the victim of an unfair situation. But remember back to what our elders taught us when we were tiny. Those childhood rules weren't just for sorting out play-box squabbles, they were actually the rules for life. Now it's high time that someone set about reminding us and making sure we abide by them again, and what's more The Office Auntie might be just the person for the job! We need a return to 'Nice' and we need it now. A no-nonsense guide to creating more rewarding and sustainable business relationships.

Top Dog: The Science of Winning and Losing
For a decade, it's been a constant drumbeat, from our nation to corporations to employees to our youngest students: we must all be more competitive. But no one's really given us an understanding of how to compete. Finally-that's about to change. As President Dwight Eisenhower said, It's not the size of the dog in the fight; it's the size of the fight in the dog. And in Top Dog, Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman reveal the size of the fight in all of us. Top Dog exposes the hidden factors behind every sort of win and loss-from bringing home a Gold in Olympic swimming to bombing the SAT. Exploring the psychology of rankings, the neuroscience of mistakes, and the DNA of fearlessness, Top Dog's filled with cutting-edge science told through stories of pilot flight training, NASCAR brawls, political try-outs, ballroom dancing, CIA spies, Wall Street, and so much more. You'll discover the forces that compel each one of us to compete.
