Defining You

Fiona Murden
Authors:
Fiona Murden

Our behaviour is at the core of what we do, yet we have very little understanding of why we act a certain way and are often completely baffled by what other people do. We are oblivious as to how we really work as human beings. Defining You opens a window into the process of psychological profiling in business and presents a clear path to improving your effectiveness with immediate actions and tangible tips.Professional profiling assessments tell us how we are motivated, what environment we prefer, how we achieve our goals and our preferences of communication styles. The results enable the individual to personalise strategies for enhancing their leadership performance.While there are certain unchanging fundamentals in all successful leaders, in terms of likeability, intelligence, decisiveness, strategic thinking and specialist knowledge, the most effective leaders have been proven to be those who are emotionally intelligent. Those leaders who know their job but they can also read and adjust to their audience; they are self-aware and so tend to be confident yet humble. Socially sensitive, they understand how to get the most out of individuals and teams for the benefit of others. Such factors ensure they are trusted and respected - essential ingredients for success as a leader.However profiling is for the privileged few. Not every potential leader has the opportunity to embark on an intense process of self-refection. Fiona Murden, a leadership psychologist, guides you through the profiling process enabling you to fully understand your core drivers and interpersonal style. Including chapters on psychometric testing, 360 assessment, feedback and guidance on interpreting your results and taking steps to leverage your strengths.

Mind of a Survivor

Megan Hine
Authors:
Megan Hine

***Shortlisted for the Great Outdoors Book of the Year***Surviving in the wild takes a great deal of strength. Often faced with frozen tundra, sweltering deserts, humid jungles, perilous mountains and fast-flowing rivers, Megan Hine is no stranger to perilous conditions. Whilst leading expeditions and bushcraft survival courses and in her work on television shows such as Bear Gryll's Mission Survive and Running Wild, she has explored the corners of the globe in pursuit of adventure.Faced with the toughest of conditions: bad weather; lack of food and being in the presence of predators, is the ultimate test of character and often the biggest challenge to overcome is in the head. In these situations, the human brain is simultaneously the greatest asset and biggest liability. Not everyone is suited to the great outdoors and when danger calls many aren't as well-equipped to survive, no amount of top of the range kit will save you if you don't have the right frame of mind. Here Megan Hine examines the human ability and instinct for survival, showing us how others have developed the attitudes and attributes to thrive in the most dangerous situations, and how those same attitudes and attributes help them confront problems and obstacles at work and at home. Being chased through the jungle by armed opium farm guards, abseiling past bears and lighting fires with tampons, Megan has seen and done it all. In Mind of a Survivor she takes you along for a series of life-and-death adventures and shows you what happens to people when they are pushed to their limits. Inspirational rather than instructional, Megan examines the human ability and instinct for survival sharing the life tools that she uses and showing how they can as easily be applied to more domestic everyday life - from careers to relationships, from overcoming adversity to decision making. Filled with her own experiences, Mind of a Survivor is packed full of adventure and can help people survive in any situation and cope with whatever life throws at them.
