By Denise Lee Yohn

  • Hardback
  • £20.00

Denise Lee Yohn, a leading authority on building and positioning exceptional brands, shows readers how to blend internal culture and external brand to yield consistently phenomenal business results.

'Leaders everywhere are trying to build great brands, but few realise how powerfully brands are shaped by the cultures of their organizations. This compelling book shows how.' -Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Originals and Give and Take

In FUSION, Denise Lee Yohn examines some of the world's greatest organizations and reverse-engineers their greatness - specifically how they've integrated what's on the inside (culture) with what's on the outside (brand) for remarkable results.

Through detailed case studies, interviews with industry leaders, findings from respected academic research and drawing on her own experience working with extraordinary brands across a broad range of sectors, Denise shows how great companies achieve the brand-culture fusion that creates extraordinary results and growth. FUSION is for those with responsibility and oversight for the core operations of their business (C-Suite and line managers) who also set the tone and direction for their companies. The book includes access to Denise's proprietary online assessment for determining how close to or how far from brand/culture integration a company is and a blueprint for achieving brand-culture fusion.

Cracking Complexity

David Komlos, David Benjamin
Authors:
David Komlos, David Benjamin

The revolutionary process at the heart of Cracking Complexity is backed by empirical research from the authors' work with world-leading companies whose experiences will serve as case-studies. Komlos and Benjamin's approach harnesses disparate views from inside and outside of an organization, including front-line employees, former competitors, theorists and disruptors around a big, messy problem to form a high-functioning team of people, a "mega-brain," that can see every side of a problem and identify the best solution(s) for it. Complex issues are solved in a matter of days, not months, not years, a time-frame supported by the authors' research and practice over three decades.

Leadership At Scale

Authors:
Claudio Feser, Michael Rennie, Nicolai Chen Nielsen

Traditional approaches to leadership development focus on a small number of individuals at the top. However, in today's world of constant change and decentralized decision-making, organizations need effective leaders at all levels of their organizations. That requires a much broader and deeper pool of leadership talent, and most organizations fall far short of what they need.Leadership at Scale defines a new approach. In it, top experts at McKinsey, the world's number one leadership factory, expose the secrets of how to drive leadership development that reaches the entire organization, adapts to diverse contexts and achieves impact at scale. Grounded in extensive research and the global experience of +25 leadership experts and illustrated with a fictional step-by-step case with numerous real-life examples, this book provides leaders with the systematic and fact-based approach they need to unlock organizational performance through leadership effectiveness.

Failure is always an option...For more than 50 years, NASA's Mission Control has been known for two things: perfect decision making in extreme situations and producing generations of steely-eyed missile men and women who continue that tradition.

By demonstrating how his Mission Control team nurtured a culture which has delivered impossible wins for decades, Hill provides a guide for all leaders to boost their company's performance at all levels.Whether failure means cost and schedule overruns, quality reduction, loss of market share, bankruptcy - or putting someone's life a risk, how we lead can determine whether even small mistakes are dealt with or are left to snowball out of control and destroy an enterprise. Discover how to take leadership from the Mission Control Room to your boardroom and beyond, and achieve this out-of-this-world leadership environment in your team.

The Next Level

Scott Eblin
Authors:
Scott Eblin

Much as Good to Great described what separates top companies from the rest, The Next Level: What Insiders Know about Executive Success shows executives what separates leadership success from failure at the next level. Every day, high performers are tapped to be executives and then left alone to figure out how to succeed in their new role. When this happens, most executives rely on strengths that served them well earlier in their careers. As executive coach Scott Eblin explains, this is why 40 percent of them fail. Moving successfully to the executive level requires knowing which behaviours and beliefs to let go, as well as which new ones to pick up. This confidence-building book outlines a program for success based on frank advice from accomplished senior executives around the world on what to do and, just as important, what to avoid. Like having a personal executive coach at your side, this valuable book shows you what to pick up and let go of to be successful at the next level. This fully revised edition of The Next Level is an essential addition to any leadership development or executive education toolkit.
