Author: Derek Draper Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 05/09/2019

A Financial Times Business Book of the Month Take control of your life and create space to succeed We're used to feeling stressed, rushed and overwhelmed. At work and at home there are endless calls on our attention and time. We're constantly playing catch-up. But if we want to perform optimally, and reach our full potential, we must learn to pause and create space in even the busiest day. Informed by over a decade of hands-on experience as a coach at the most senior levels of business, this book shows how to push back against the tide and create space in your life to think, relate and act on a deeper level. Learning to focus, manage time, and take control of your mental and physical space is the first step in developing and excelling in anything. This book shows how to do just that, drawing on real-life examples and the best of both classical and cutting-edge psychological and behavioural thinking. Each chapter contains models, tools and tips that have been used effectively in some of the world's biggest organisations, and which will allow you to set your strategy, raise your productivity and create meaningful change for lasting success.

The Power of Active Thinking How to become a resilient contrarian through the strength of engaged thinking

The Power of Active Thinking How to become a resilient contrarian through the strength of engaged thinking

Author: Ulf Loewenhav Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 05/09/2019

How can decisions be improved by detecting and managing inherent weaknesses? This book analyses the practical implications of behavioural economics among decision makers to encourage active creative thinking and drive individuals and organizations to make better decisions. Going beyond behavioural economics, the book uses psychology, philosophy and anthropology to demonstrate the myths which govern behaviour, our natural longing for inclusion and the power held by those setting the agenda our vicinity. This book enables active thinking and encourages the use of System 2 thinking to steer the corporate ship in line with the corporate purpose, and for individuals to be a useful asset to their companies. In order to succeed, you need to be resilient, get your bearings and never give in. In short, you need to be a contrarian, a sternly resilient contrarian.

The Mother of All Jobs How to Have Children and a Career and Stay Sane(ish)

Author: Christine Armstrong Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 05/09/2019

Have you ever looked at the lengthy school holiday dates and silently screamed in desperation? Have you gone part time yet are still doing a full-time workload? Have you ever been too afraid to ask about maternity benefits or flexible working? Do you constantly feel guilty about missing school events and secretly envious of other mums at the school gates who seem to be doing it all better than you? If any (or all) of the above rings true for you, you are NOT alone. While the demands of work are increasing with longer working hours and more pressure to remain 'switched on' to our phones and computers, the needs of our children and the world of school and childcare have stayed the same. Something has got to change before we all reach breaking point. The Mother of All Jobs brings together the wisdom of women who opened up about their experiences into a manifesto to help working parents thrive.
