    Backstabbers and Bullies
    The idea of leadership failure and derailment has been brushed under the carpet for far too long and only now are statistics appearing on the sheer number of leaders who fail at their jobs. Backstabbers and Bullies provides the latest psychiatric and clinical perspectives on dark-side behaviour, including: - recognising and coping with over-confident, narcissistic and psychopathic leaders; - causes of leadership derailment and failure; - corrupt corporate cultures; and - the criminal personality. Fascinating reading for anyone who has worked alongside a corporate psychopath, business narcissist or histrionic show-off, Backstabbers and Bullies goes beyond the science to explain how to better understand, manage and prevent dark-side behaviour, as well as presenting advice for reducing derailment potential for yourself, your colleagues and your organisation.

  • Concept Code How to Create Meaningful Concepts
    Concept Code How to Create Meaningful Concepts
    Conceptual thinking is a way of thinking with which you add a vision to a product, service or organisation. In order to attract and bind your consumer, your concept becomes vital for your success. Content is key, as this determines the coherence of the concept. Consumers want to experience the story in every touchpoint of the concept and thus being fed again and again. The producer must meet the emotional and functional need of the consumer as well. So, besides to 'think conceptually' it is also important to 'do conceptually'; a concept must be executable (doable). ' Code of Concept' guides you through every stage of bringing life to an idea in order to become a fully matured concept. This book is the English edition of Concept Denken, published by BIS Publishers, and is sold more then 4000 copies. Because of its succes in this small country we are convinced of a international succes.

  • Crisis Leadership
    Crisis Leadership
    Anyone in a leadership position today knows that we live in uncertain times - and disaster can strike any business, at any time, usually without warning. From the collapse of Lehman Brothers and the oil disaster of Deepwater Horizon, to Malaysia Airlines' loss of two planes, corporations are coming to realise that the impossible can happen all too easily. Public institutions, too, face a range of threats - from global recession, resurgent terrorism and a stream of appalling natural disasters. For leaders in such organisations, these crisis situations can present both opportunities and threats. How they lead their companies through such challenging times will propel their careers to new heights - or destroy them completely.

    Crisis Leadership examines the challenges faced by leaders at each stage of the crisis `lifecycle', from the instant they learn of the crisis, through to moments of critical decision-making and the final tumultuous days. Featuring interviews with Sir Mervyn King, ex-Governor of the Bank of England, and General Stanley McChrystal, who was the top Commander of American forces in Afghanistan, the book offers a unique insight into the lessons learned by people in the most challenging of situations, such as Malaysia Airlines (MH17 and MH370, plus the ensuing bankruptcy), Thomas Cook (Corfu deaths), Toyota (Prius recalls), HSBC (tax avoidance and US subsidiary issues), World Health Organisation (the Ebola and Zika outbreaks), and FIFA (corruption scandal).

    Blended with operational guidance from the author's extensive experience in crisis management, Tim Johnson offers and overview of the crisis `lifecycle' to ensure that readers will come away from this book with a honed understanding of the critical nature of each key stage.

  • Crowdsourceress
    Crowdsourceress
    In the past year, crowdfunding platforms helped generate a staggering $34 billion dollars in funding. But the harsh reality is that the majority of crowdfunding campaigns fail-only 40% meet their goals. And failing means failing hard. If you fall short of your goal by the deadline, not only won't you see any of the money you've worked so hard to raise, but you might actually tarnish your shiny idea. Alex Daly is a hugely successful crowdfunding expert who has run some of Kickstarter's biggest campaigns, from TLC's new album to Neil Young's music player to Joan Didion's documentary "We Tell Ourselves Stories in Order to Live." In this book, she shows you how to: * Build a deep fan base prior to launch * Understand the psychology of why people give and create the right narrative around your project * Find the right platform on which to raise funds * Deal with unfulfilled promises and angry backers * Create intimacy and promote shareability of your project * Best use influence and exclusivity to get funded. Woven throughout is Alex's own entrepreneurial story-the unconventional career path she took to ultimately start her business, Vann Alexandra, thanks to crowdfunding.
    And she will take readers deep into her most successful campaigns, showing them how she helped them get funded. As someone who's spent lots of time in the trenches, she has learned the hard way how to communicate and connect with people on the Internet-and offers tangible tools to run your own crowdfunding campaigns. Above all, this is a book about how to fully connect with the crowd, get people to pay attention, and inspire them to act.

  • Curation
    Curation
    'A terrific and important book ...it's a great, fresh take on how the 21st century is transforming the way we select everything from food to music' David Bodanis, author of E=MC2 In the past two years humanity has produced more data than the rest of human history combined. We carry a library of data in our pockets, accessible at any second. We have more information and more goods at our disposal than we know what to do with. There is no longer any competitive advantage in creating more information. Today, value lies in curation: selecting, finding and cutting down to show what really matters. Curation reveals how a little-used word from the world of museums became a crucial and at times controversial strategy for the twenty-first century. Today's most successful companies - Apple, Netflix, Amazon - have used curation to power their growth, by offering customers more tailored and appropriate choices. Curation answers the question of how we can live and prosper in an age of information overload. In the context of excess, it is not only a sound business strategy, but a way to make sense of the world.

    Devil's Financial Dictionary
    The Devil's Financial Dictionary skewers the plutocrats and bureaucrats who gave us exploding mortgages, freakish risks, and banks too big to fail. And it distills the complexities, absurdities, and pomposities of Wall Street into plain truths and aphorisms anyone can understand. An indispensable survival guide to the hostile wilderness of today's financial markets, The Devil's Financial Dictionary delivers practical insights with a scorpion's sting. It cuts through the fads and fakery of Wall Street and clears a safe path for investors between euphoria and despair. Staying out of financial purgatory has never been this much fun. Definitions include: DAY-TRADER, n. See IDIOT. FEE, n. A tiny word with a teeny sound, which nevertheless is the single biggest determinant of success or failure for most investors. Those who keep fees as low as possible will, on average, earn the highest possible returns.
