Summary

Lots of people know that ‘talent happens’ in their organisation, but many are not quite sure what ‘talent’ is or how ‘it’ happens. It can be difficult for anyone who wants to know more, to really understand what is done and why it is done in a particular way.
 
• Should you get rid of appraisals?
 
• Should millennials be treated differently?
 
• Should you tell people they are ‘talent’ and others that they are not?
 
Kate O’Loughlin looks at what the science tells us about the theories behind these ideas, and what other alternatives there might be.

    Could it be that the essential missing asset class in the entire investment landscape is about to be enriched with a healthy allocation? That ingredient is nothing less than the human heart and the life changing power of faith and love. The Yoga of True Wealth is as enlightening as it is touching, a blessing to the financial world from one of its own. Readers will be soaked with wisdom from the greatest of such masters as Jesus Christ, Buddha, Krishna, Lao Tzu, Ramana Maharshi, Nisargadatta Maharaj, Thomas Merton and Rumi.  
    “Man is a captive on earth. His body and his mind are his prison bars. And the soul is unconsciously craving to experience once again the freedom that originally belonged to it.” 
    —Rumi —The Masnavi 
    Presented with sincerity, honesty and heart, this is a touching true story replete with the deepest wisdom and most poignant truths. The fact that these golden threads are interwoven in the tapestry of a human life unfolding makes it all the more medicine for the soul. A delightful roadmap to navigate the road less traveled toward a future where perhaps the greatest riches await.

  • Delight Your Customers - 7 Simple Ways to Raise Your Customer Service from Ordinary to Extraordinary - cover

    Delight Your Customers - 7...

    Great customer service is rare. In fact, one survey found that while 80 percent of companies described themselves as delivering "superior" service, consumers estimated the number at a mere 8 percent. The problem, according to service expert Steve Curtin, is actually quite simple. When asked what their work entails, most employees list the duties and tasks associated with their position. Very few refer to the true essence of their job, which should be their highest priority-to create delighted customers who will be less price sensitive, have higher repurchase rates, and enthusiastically recommend the company or brand to others. Without this customer focus, all that exists is a transaction-and transactional service does not make a lasting positive impression or inspire loyalty. In Delight Your Customers, Curtin reveals three elements common to all exceptional service experiences. He also makes a compelling case that attention needs to shift from monitoring service activities to modeling, recognizing, and reinforcing the behaviors that actually create happy customers, such as expressing genuine interest, offering sincere compliments, sharing unique knowledge, conveying authentic enthusiasm, providing pleasant surprises, and delivering service heroics when needed. Illustrated with real-world stories and examples, this refreshing guide helps readers everywhere take their customer service from ordinary to extraordinary.

    Cutting Onions shares restaurant executive Bobby Shaw’s journey from starting out as an hourly employee at McDonald’s to becoming a senior executive in the restaurant industry, what he learned along the way, and how it changed the course of his life and countless others. 
    
    The importance of culture is referenced by many leaders trying to build an organization, but it isn’t always reflected in the day-to-day actions of that organization. This leadership guide chronicles the journey of one leader through one of the most challenging and rewarding industries, eventually inspiring hundreds of other leaders along the way to do more than they ever thought possible. Bobby dives into the challenges he overcame and how, along the way, he learned the importance of building a strong culture in which people wanted more for each other than they wanted for themselves. Cutting Onions tells the story of a restaurant that figured it out and tied the results they achieved right back to their culture, represented by the simple, everyday things that, as all leaders learn, are the most important.

    Control, Conquer, and Prevail! Everybody's biased. The truth is, we all harbor unconscious assumptions that can get in the way of our good intentions and keep us from building authentic relationships with people different from ourselves.

By becoming more self-aware, we can control knee-jerk reactions, conquer fears of the unknown, and prevail over closed-mindedness.

    Collaboration is increasingly difficult and increasingly necessary Often, to get something done that really matters to us, we need to work with people we don't agree with or like or trust. Adam Kahane has faced this challenge many times, working on big issues like democracy and jobs and climate change and on everyday issues in organizations and families. He has learned that our conventional understanding of collaboration—that it requires a harmonious team that agrees on where it's going, how it's going to get there, and who needs to do what—is wrong. Instead, we need a new approach to collaboration that embraces discord, experimentation, and genuine cocreation—which is exactly what Kahane provides in this groundbreaking and timely book.
