Helping People Change: Coaching With Compassion For Lifelong Learning And Growth [hardback] / Boyatzis, Richard
” In this powerful, practical book, there is a clear and hopeful message. The way to help someone learn and change, they say, cannot be focused primarily on problems that need to be addressed, but instead must connect to that person’s positive vision of himself or herself, to an inspiring dream or goal they’ve long held. This is what great coaches do — they know that people draw energy from their visions and dreams for themselves, and that same energy sustains their efforts to change, even through difficult times. Using rich and moving real-life stories, as well as decades of original published research on coaching and helping relationships, Helping People Change shows how coaching others around their dreams and visions opens people up to thinking creatively, helps them learn and grow in meaningful ways, and motivates them to sustain that growth far into the future..” (Catalogue)

Co-Creating Brands: Brand Management From A Co-Creative Perspective [paperback] / Schmidt, Holger
“Brand management and development has traditionally been regarded as the responsibility of the organization they design, produce and sell the brand, before delivering it to customers. Yet this approach can be needlessly restrictive, as the connective power of the internet and the desire of consumers to focus on experiences has reshaped branding.” (Catalogue)

The Art Of Decision Making: How We Move From Indecision To Smart Choices [hardback] / Bikart, Joseph
“The Art of Decision Making explores, analyzes and navigates the idea of volition: “the power to use one’s own will in order to make decisions.” By drawing on diverse sources, Joseph Bikart has created a precise map of the intricate paths we take when we move from will to action. Looking closely at our tears around the choices we make, Bikart helps us to delve into the intricate defense mechanisms we create around decision making and asks if these perhaps mask deeper fears around the self. The Art of Decision Making will help you to make better decisions and find the common thread between those decisions. It will show you how to follow that thread, and in so doing, move from hesitation to decisiveness. Book jacket.” (Catalogue)
Upstream : The Quest to Solve Problems Before They Happen / Heath, Dan
New York Times bestselling author Dan Heath explores how to prevent problems before they happen, drawing on insights from hundreds of interviews with unconventional problem solvers. So often in life, we get stuck in a cycle of response. We put out fires. We deal with emergencies. We stay downstream, handling one problem after another, but we never make our way upstream to fix the systems that caused the problems. Heath introduces us to the thinkers who have overcome these obstacles and scored massive victories by switching to an upstream mindset.. …Upstream delivers practical solutions for preventing problems rather than reacting to them. How many problems in our lives and in society are we tolerating simply because we’ve forgotten that we can fix them?” (Catalogue)
