Everything Connects – How to Transform and Lead in the Age of Creativity, Innovation and Sustainability (McGraw Hill, 2014)

Everything Connects

Workforces are increasingly dispersed, demanding of self-expression, and quite possibly disengaged. Within this topsy-turvy context, leaders must spark creativity, drive innovation, and ensure sustainability.

It is your step-by-step guide for working with yourself and others.

Survive to Thrive – 27 Practices of Resilient Entrepreneurs, Innovators, And Leaders (Motivational Press, 2015)

Survive to Thrive

amazon.com   barnesandnoble.com   800ceoread.com

Although many ideas never make it off the page and most new ventures fail, we tend to hear about people when they are successful, not when they are struggling.

This creates a distorted perception that people can go from failure to success in a day. Yet behind every “overnight success” is a story of a person, team, or entire organization facing a host of obstacles that have the potential to shut them down. Those who prevail share one thing in common: the ability to draw from within to weather whatever comes their way.

Ultimately there is no one definition of success, so the authors examined the stories of a variety of leaders who faced ill health, professional setbacks, emotional loss, and other life-changing events, to illustrate how each achieved transformation and success. The book illuminates how anyone can attain the resilience that’s required to repeatedly push forward in the face of conflict.

Each individual’s story in the book examines the essential tools needed in overcoming obstacles and seizing upon an opportunity. Each incorporates practical applications for reframing the reaction to setbacks.

The Power of Convergence – Linking Business Strategies and Technology Decisions to Create Sustainable Success (American Management Association)

the-power-of-convergence-bookThe Power of Convergence makes the case–and lays the groundwork–for a new understanding of the role of technology in business. No technology should be developed or deployed without a full vision of how it advances business goals, addresses customer needs, or both. Beyond that, technology should be so tightly intertwined with strategy that the two drive each other, with each at the ready when market opportunity materializes–however suddenly

“At some point, every business leader will struggle with the management topics outlined in The Power of Convergence. How they think about these issues, more importantly, how they make the right decisions regarding them is critical to the success of their organization.” – Dr. Krishna Palepu, Ross Graham Walker Professor of Business Administration, Senior Associate Dean for International Development, Harvard Business School
