The fix : overcome the invisible barriers that are holding women back at work / King, Michelle P.
“A guide to overcoming the invisible barriers that hold women back at work. While the focus is on women in this book, King is not blind to others facing barriers too — men themselves who deviate from the Don Draper model, for example, and others who are perceived as not fitting in. Fixing the workplace to help women will lead to fixing the workplace for all because, King concludes, ‘it is the only way companies will survive the inevitable changes to come’.” Based on King’s research and exclusive interviews with major companies and thought leaders, The Fix reveals why denying the fact that women are held back just because they are women – what she calls gender denial – is the biggest obstacle holding women back at work and outlines the hidden sexism and invisible barriers women encounter at work every day. In this fascinating and empowering book, King outlines the invisible barriers that hold women back at all stages of their careers, and provides readers with a clear set of takeaways to thrive despite the sexist workplace, as they fight for change from within. Gender equality is not about women, and it is not about men – it is about making workplaces work for everyone. Together, we can fix work, not women.” (Catalogue)

The Leader’s Guide to Unconscious Bias: How to reframe bias, cultivate connection, and create high-performing teams / Fuller, Pamela A timely, must-have guide to understanding and overcoming bias in the workplace, from the experts at FranklinCovey. Unconscious bias affects everyone. It can look like the disappointment of an HR professional when a candidate for a new position asks about maternity leave. It can look like preferring the application of a red brick university graduate over one from a state school. It can look like assuming a man is more entitled to speak in a meeting than his female junior colleague. Teaching you how to overcome unconscious bias, this book provides more than thirty unique tools, such as a prep worksheet and a list of ways to reframe your unconscious thoughts. According to the experts at Franklin Covey, your workplace can achieve its highest performance rate once you start to overcome your biases and allow your employees to be whole people. By recognising bias, emphasising empathy and curiosity, and making true understanding a priority in the workplace, we can unlock the potential of every person we encounter.” (Catalogue)

Out-innovate : how global entrepreneurs from Delhi to Detroit are rewriting the rules of Silicon Valley / Lazarow, Alexandre
The new playbook for innovation and startup success is emerging from beyond Silicon Valley, at the ‘frontier.’ Startups have changed the world. In the United States, many startups, such as Tesla, Apple, and Amazon, have become household names. For decades, the hot center of this phenomenon has been Silicon Valley. This is changing fast. Thanks to technology, startups can now take root anywhere–and they are, from Delhi to Detroit to Nairobi to Sao Paulo. As venture capitalist Alexandre Lazarow shows in this insightful and instructive book, this Silicon Valley “gospel” is due for a refresh–and it comes from what he calls the “frontier,” the growing constellation of startup ecosystems, outside of the Valley and other major economic centers, that now stretches across the globe. With rich and wide-ranging stories of frontier innovators from around the world, Out-Innovate is the new playbook for innovation–wherever it has the potential to happen.” (Catalogue)

Latest Management books – Wellington City Libraries

Lead any team to win : master the essential mindset to motivate, set priorities, and build your own dynasty / Selk, Jason
“One of the ten best leadership books so far this year.” — Bloomberg …Selk and Bartow show how it takes collective mental toughness to win, developed only through a clear understanding of the goals, limitations, roles and personalities on your team. Great leaders respect and embrace channel capacity, Selk and Bartow explain, which means they don’t overload their teams with blizzards of tasks and responsibilities. They bust the “focus” and “relationship” fallacies, as those words are meaningless for teams unless they are byproducts of activities that really matter. And Selk and Bartow teach how to manage expectations, since doing so creates a level of respect between the leader and the team — and among the team members–that is a catalyst for peak achievement.” (Catalogue)

How ready are leaders today for these changes? What should leaders do now? To answer these questions, Jacob interviewed over 140 CEOs from companies like Unilever, Mastercard, Best Buy, Oracle, Verizon, Kaiser, KPMG, Intercontinental Hotels Group, Yum Brands, Saint-Gobain, Dominos, Philip Morris International, and over a hundred others. What emerged from all of this research is the most accurate groundbreaking book on the future of leadership, which shares exclusive insights from the world’s top CEOs and never before seen research.
