Leadership At Scale

Better leadership, better results

By Claudio Feser, Michael Rennie, and Nicolai Chen Nielsen

  • Hardback
  • £25.00

McKinsey, the world's number one management consultancy firm, in their first book on leadership across organisations reveal for the first time how to truly move the needle and increase the leadership effectiveness of a large-scale business or body.

Leadership effectiveness drives organizational performance, yet almost half of all organizations face some kind of leadership gap that they are not able to fill. In Leadership at Scale, McKinsey experts Claudio Feser, Michael Rennie and Nicolai Chen Nielsen share their secrets on how to increase leadership effectiveness across an organization.

Using extensive research, distilled insights from McKinsey's leadership development work in practice, and lessons from highly successful leadership development programs, this book focuses on how to identify and develop the leadership behaviors that matter most.

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.

Reinventing Capitalism in the Age of Big Data

Viktor Mayer-Schonberger, Thomas Ramge
Authors:
Viktor Mayer-Schonberger, Thomas Ramge

Markets have long been acknowledged to be a superior mechanism for managing resources but until the advent of big data, they largely functioned better in theory than in practice. Now, as ideal markets are within reach because of vastly greater access to information, we are on the verge of a major disruption. As data becomes a more valuable asset than cash, the rules for surviving and thriving are changing.Reinventing Capitalism is a provocative look at how data is reinventing markets and, in so doing, is ushering in an era where the firm is no longer predominant. With richer and more comprehensive information about human wants and needs, an economy powered by data offers the possibility of increased abundance, equality, and resilience. The data-driven markets that will thrive in this environment are far better than firms at organizing human endeavors, meaning that finance driven capitalism is being displaced by its more efficient, moresustainable, and more democratic disruptor: data capitalism.

The Club

Jonathan Clegg, Joshua Robinson
Authors:
Jonathan Clegg, Joshua Robinson

This is a sports and business tale of how money, ambition, and 25 years of uncommon drama re-made an ancient institution into a 21st century entertainment empire. No-one knew it when their experiment began, but with luck, brazen confidence and good timing, a motley cast of billionaires, chancers and chairmen struck Premier League gold.Soon, everyone was attracted to the gold rush, from Russian oligarchs, to Emirati sheikhs, American tycoons and Asian Tiger titans. Some succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. Some lost everything. But the cash they flowed into English soccer lured players, agents and managers from around the world, turning ageing industrial cities and a selection of fortunate clubs into the focus of a compulsive global attention.Today, as players are sold for hundreds of millions, clubs are valued in the billions, and games are beamed out to nearly 200 countries, all while the league struggles to preserve its 'English' identity and traditions.Deeply researched and drawing on dozens of exclusive interviews with the key power-brokers at every major team - from the aristocrats of Manchester United and Arsenal, to the new money of Chelsea and Manchester City - The Club is the definitive and wildly entertaining narrative of how the Premier League product took over the world.

Scott Eblin

Scott Eblin

After the thrill of promotion to an executive position comes the sobering reality of just how difficult it is to succeed at this level - and how hard it can be to find help. Some 40 percent of new executives don't last 18 months. A failed senior-level hire can cost a company up to $2.7 million. Why do so many employees with strong track records derail when promoted to the executive suite? In this 12th Anniversary Edition of the classic insider's guide to executive career progression, Scott Eblin draws on decades of experience as a leader and executive coach to identify why new executives fail and offers a practical program for achieving success. Beyond tactical advice, Eblin provides a framework for transformational behavior and thinking - for creating executive presence, the confidence that is critical for success. Essential for leaders who have just been promoted to or are on track for the executive level, as well as any executive who needs a refresher.

Leadership

As 9-5 morphs into 24/7, it brings mounting pressures and new rules. Your life is full-on, relentless and exhausting and worse still, it's zipping by in a blur. It's easy to end up careering from one crisis to another, buzzed up on sugar and coffee, existing from one holiday to the next.The leader's job is to squeeze more from less, but most leaders feel they can't possibly work any harder and are sick to death with being told to work smarter. So where next? The answer is to use the multiplier effect to transform your leadership style.Good emotions spread far wider than we realise. A good leader who is inspired and inspiring will spread good feelings throughout his team. But it won't stop there. They in turn will pass good feelings on to their colleagues, clients and customers, who will pass on positive emotions in turn. The multiplier effect is the organic set of positive emotions which flow out in ripples from good leadership. This book shows how to lead well by being the secret ingredient in your team's everyday happiness - just by making them feel good and empowering them to pass it on. Leadership: The Multiplier Effect is crammed with the latest thinking on leadership, strengths, positive psychology, purpose, employee engagement, coaching, emotional intelligence and 'life', supplemented with anecdotes, pithy quotes and asides that help bring the content to life. And to save you time, the book's central message is this: Your job as a leader is NOT to inspire people. Your job as a leader is to BE INSPIRED.

Money

Authors:

Do you want to get to the stage - soon - where you are truly financially independent, able to use your money in the way you'd like, and be completely confident in your ability to take care of yourself and your family? That is a universal desire, but many of us regard wealth and financial independence as a goal which we'll likely never achieve - there are just too many bills that need paying and there is a widespread belief that the money game is rigged. Even people who win the lottery or inherit money often seem to wind up losing it. The evidence suggests you can't win a game that you don't understand - even if you start out winning - because you never understood the game in the first place.So how can you win with money? How can you create independent wealth and hold on to it? This inspiring book by self-made multi-millionaire Rob Moore explains the rules of the game, shares simple tricks for managing money better, details how to create a plan for an ambitious future, and shows you the very best way to become a millionaire - to think and behave like one!
