Summary

To succeed, modern businesses need to foster the creativity of their staff; they need to provide an environment that promotes constant innovation. 
 

Intrapreneurship, which harnesses the entrepreneurial drive within an existing organization to foster new ideas and creative thinking, gives companies the problem-solving edge to succeed in an ever-changing world. To stay on top, companies need to empower all their employees — their rebels, their trend spotters, their communicators, their researchers — to find and implement new ways of operating.  
 

The Greenhouse Approach shows how companies and organizations can use creative thinking to reimagine current norms and structures and develop a culture of intrapreneurship, equipping them with the tools to anticipate and adapt to change.

    In the concrete jungle, there are seasons of rain and plenty, followed by seasons of drought and scarcity. Whether or not we survive depends on how prepared we are for these changes, and how willing we are to evolve in order to remain relevant. Leaders who ignore the shifting seasons will soon find themselves and their firms fading into obscurity. 
    Whether we shy away from it or actively seek it out, change is never easy. In these rapidly changing times, surviving means stepping away from the herd and venturing out onto the road less traveled. It means sharpening your claws and taking a bird’s eye view of where your business is at, and learning and evolving during the times of plenty before the season of drought and hunger returns. This may mean taking down predators, it may mean diversifying or specializing, and it may even mean seeking out new hunting grounds. Whatever it is, the secret is never to lose hope. 
    Join us on an African safari as Gary Sturisky, a world-renowned transformation consultant, takes you on a journey through the vast open plains of the Serengeti and down the narrow corridors of the concrete jungle to uncover practical tools to help your company evolve into the CPA firm of the future.

    This is a 2-book combo, which has the following titles:
    
    
    
    Book 1: Persuasion can be used for good and evil. Some people know exactly what moves others to act a certain way, and they know how to guide them in certain directions.
    
    
    
    But the knowledge of how to do this, does not have to be limited to a select few. It simply requires someone like you to take initiative and to read or listen to a book like this. In this book, a variety of topics will be covered, including but not limited to: the true meaning of persuasion, tips to persuade others faster and more effectively, persuasion as an art, the neuroscience behind decision-making moments, and problems that arise when people are too persuasive (if there is such a thing).
    
    
    
    Book 2: How can you become a master of persuasion?
    
    
    How do you get your way?
    
    
    
    These three questions are at the heart of this brief book, that will reveal many secrets of the persuasion realm many have entered.
    Once you learn to recognize the most important techniques of persuading others, you will be able to use them and become better at getting what you want in life.
    
    
    
    The most crucial topics in this book include: the 6 best ways to get your way, how to use the heart and not the head, persuasion techniques predators use against their victims, how to use a good story, common logical fallacies, tricks to market your brand better and be more convincing, and how persuasion is related to law.
    
    
    
    If any of these topics pique your interest, then I encourage you to get started with this book.
