    10 Rules for Talking How To Have Difficult Conversations in an Angry World
    Psychologist Tim Harkness has noticed sometimes it seems everyone is shouting, but nobody is listening.

    Surely we don't need to learn how to talk? And yet, in an age of Brexit and Trump, where social media provides a platform for instantaneous, unfettered opinion, doesn't it feel that we've lost our ability to move discussions forward?

    10 Rules for Talking is a timely guide to help you talk to people who don't share your opinion. Harkness focuses on difficult conversations - the complex, emotional and recurring discussions that persistently affect our personal and professional lives.

    The ten rules will teach you to remember most people are good and worthy of respect (Rule 3), why it is important to keep a conversation safe (Rule 5) and how to truly listen (Rule 9). Learn how to persuade, respond and - most importantly - keep the conversation progressing.

    Welcome to a new way of talking.

In this new edition Richard Koch outlines a fresh understanding of the true power of the principle.

Many thousands of people throughout the world have found the principle useful at work, in their careers and in their personal lives. Koch outlines how with the 80/20 Principle we can achieve much more with much less effort, time and resources simply by concentrating on the all-important 20% thus controlling events instead of being controlled by them, and with several times the results.

  • 9 Types of Leadership Mastering the Art of People in the 21st Century Workplace
    9 Types of Leadership Mastering the Art of People in the 21st Century Workplace
    The 9 Types of Leadership draws on the Enneagram, an amazingly accurate descriptor of personality, to help people in the workplace create more effective relationships, so they can be more productive and happy at the office.

    In the past few years, mindfulness and other approaches to self-awareness have begun to transform the American workplace. But while it is increasingly widely accepted in the business world that the most direct route to success lies in adopting practices that actively promote leaders' self-awareness, social skill, and "emotional intelligence," the best and most efficient path to developing a more conscious workforce often remains unclear.

    The Enneagram provides this pathway to greater self-awareness and social skillfulness. Like a GPS for social interactions, the Enneagram helps you orient yourself when you get caught up in people problems you don't know how to work your way out of.

    By providing extremely detailed and accurate descriptions of nine recognizable personalities, the Enneagram is an unmatched tool for business people to use to decode the mysteries involved in understanding why people do what they do, why we have conflicts with some people but not others, and how we can become aware of our blind spots. Most importantly, it can help leaders to know themselves in a deeper way so they can more effectively lead others and more powerfully model conscious behaviors for their direct reports.

  • After Piketty: the Agenda for Economics and Inequality
    After Piketty: the Agenda for Economics and Inequality
    A Foreign Affairs Best Book of the Year

    "An intellectual excursion of a kind rarely offered by modern economics."
    -Foreign Affairs

    Thomas Piketty's Capital in the Twenty-First Century is the most widely discussed work of economics in recent years. But are its analyses of inequality and economic growth on target? Where should researchers go from there in exploring the ideas Piketty pushed to the forefront of global conversation? A cast of leading economists and other social scientists-including Emmanuel Saez, Branko Milanovic, Laura Tyson, and Michael Spence-tackle these questions in dialogue with Piketty.

    "A fantastic introduction to Piketty's main argument in Capital, and to some of the main criticisms, including doubt that his key equation...showing that returns on capital grow faster than the economy-will hold true in the long run."
    -Nature

    "Piketty's work...laid bare just how ill-equipped our existing frameworks are for understanding, predicting, and changing inequality. This extraordinary collection shows that our most nimble social scientists are responding to the challenge."
    -Justin Wolfers, University of Michigan

  • All In How Obsessive Leaders Achieve the Extraordinary
    All In How Obsessive Leaders Achieve the Extraordinary
    What makes great leaders like Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk extraordinary All In shows leaders and aspiring leaders how obsession can fuel the most incredible success, but also take a toll on a leader, his or her family and work colleagues.

    Groundbreaking leaders share a passionate commitment to achieving their vision that borders and sometimes crosses the line into obsession. All In shows how obsession, if properly focused and managed, is both necessary and productive. Advances in any endeavor almost always depend on a small group of individuals who are completely consumed by the goal they're pursuing. When these leaders and their teams are successful, everyone benefits from their singular focus and relentless drive.

    All In explores the three obsessions underlying the achievements of great leaders:



    Delighting customers
    Building great products
    Creating an enduring company

    By taking you inside the success stories of iconic leaders, including Jeff Bezos of Amazon, Elon Musk of Tesla, and Steve Jobs of Apple, author Robert Bruce Shaw shows the upside of obsession and the practices that support it. Shaw also provides insight into the dark side of obsession and its destructive potential - as illustrated in his case study of Uber during the final years of Travis Kalanick's leadership tenure. Appealing to any reader of entrepreneurial biographies, All In shows individuals and organizations how to manage obsession's downsides while realizing the benefits of striving to create something that truly matters.

  • Alter Ego Effect The Power of Secret Identities to Transform Your Life
    Alter Ego Effect The Power of Secret Identities to Transform Your Life
    Now a Wall Street Journal bestseller.

    What if the games we played as children were the greatest gift to helping us achieve more today

    Before stage fright, impostor syndrome, emotional baggage, and the other dubious gifts of adulthood, everyone pretended to be a superhero, a favorite athlete, an inspiring entertainer, a nurse, a firefighter, a lion, or whatever else captured our imaginations. And yet, that natural creativity is slowly squeezed out of us because we think it's childish or it's "time to grow up." Now Todd Herman-backed by scientific research and countless stories from the real world-will show us how to tap into the human imagination to unleash new versions of ourselves, ready-made to kick ass.

    Herman has been coaching champions in every field for over twenty years, and he's helped them bring out their Heroic Self to transcend the forces pulling them into the Ordinary World.

    Anyone attempting ambitious things faces adversity, resistance, and challenges, but Herman confronts these obstacles with a question: Who or what needs to show up to make success inevitable

    In The Alter Ego Effect, Herman presents countless stories from salespeople, executives, entertainers, athletes, entrepreneurs, creatives, and historical figures to illustrate how to activate the Heroic Self already nested inside each of us. And he reveals that we may not be using those traits in the moments when we need them the most. From the creative entrepreneur who resisted their craft, to the accomplished military officer who wanted to be a warmer dad at home, Todd Herman's clients have discovered there is no end to the parts of their lives they could improve by using Alter Egos.

  • Amazon Unbound
    Amazon Unbound
    From the bestselling author of The Everything Store, an unvarnished picture of Amazon's unprecedented growth and its billionaire founder, Jeff Bezos, revealing the most important business story of our time.

    With the publication of The Everything Store in 2013, Bloomberg journalist Brad Stone revealed how the unlikely Seattle start-up Amazon became an unexpected king of ecommerce. Since then, its founder has led Amazon to explosive growth in both size and wealth. In less than ten years, Amazon has quintupled the size of its workforce and increased its valuation to well over a trillion dollars. Whereas Amazon used to sell only books, there is now little they don't sell, becoming the world's largest online retailer and pushing into other markets at warp speed. Between Amazon's forty subsidiaries - like Whole Foods Market, Amazon Studios in Hollywood, websites like Goodreads and IMDb, and Amazon Web Services cloud software unit, plus Bezos's purchase of the Washington Post - it's almost impossible to go a day without encountering their goods. Amazon provides us opportunities to shop, entertain, inform, communicate, store and, one day, maybe even travel to the moon. We live in a world run, supplied and controlled by Amazon.

    In Amazon Unbound, Stone offers the must-read follow-up to his bestseller The Everything Store, detailing the seismic changes that have taken place at Amazon over the past decade as it became one of the most powerful and feared companies in the global economy, led by one of the most powerful and feared leaders in business. He shows the acquisitions and innovations that have propelled Amazon's unprecedented growth, and the turn in public sentiment that criticises Amazon's monopolistic practices. As he charts the company's meteoric rise, Stone probes the evolution of Jeff Bezos - who started as a geeky entrepreneur but who transformed to become a fit, famed, disciplined billionaire, a man who runs Amazon with an iron fist but finds his personal life splashed over the tabloids.

    Definitive, timely and revelatory, Stone has provided an unvarnished portrait of a man and company that we couldn't imagine modern life without.

  • Anatomy of Peace
    Anatomy of Peace
    From the authors of Leadership and Self-Deception comes a new edition of an international bestseller that instills hope and inspires reconciliation. What if conflicts at home, conflicts at work, and conflicts in the world stem from the same root cause? What if we systematically misunderstand that cause? And what if, as a result, we unwittingly perpetuate the very problems we think we are trying to solve?

    This book unfolds as a story. Yusuf al-Falah, an Arab, and Avi Rozen, a Jew, each lost his father at the hands of the other's ethnic cousins. The Anatomy of Peace is the story of how they came together, how they help warring parents and children come together, and how we too can find our way out of the personal, professional, and global conflicts that weigh us down, even when war is upon us.
