The Four Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive: A Leadership Fable
The Four Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive: A Leadership Fable
by Patrick M. Lencioni
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £16.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Insight about success principles, 13 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lencioni tells a fictional story that is so realistic, anyone can relate to it. In fact, most of us will see characteristics of the people in the story in ourselves.This metaphoric prose, is one of the best ways to create personal motivation for change. Most of us have had more than one experience where our own zeal for a powerful concept has fallen on deaf ears as people resist our ideas. We also react this way when we feel others are forcing an idea for personal improvement on us as well. Lencioni avoids this human response by providing a journey through the eyes of others that makes change feel wholesome and beneficial.

It is simple and compelling and should be required reading for all managers.

The practical guide to focusing on and placing the concept of a healthy culture above all else. Lencioni makes a compelling case for why organisational health trumps all else and must be job one for leaders. He then provides practical examples from his experience in a variety of businesses as a consultant and demonstrates how to run all aspects of a business through this cultural lens.
Can be seen as a sequel to The Four Obsessions of an Extrodinary Leader.

The Art of Strengths Coaching: The Complete Guide
The Art of Strengths Coaching: The Complete Guide
by Mike Pegg
Edition: Paperback
Price: £28.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Success from Simple Truths, 12 Nov. 2012
Shouting at a flower won't make it grow, Instead, a flower needs light from the sun, nourishment from the earth and water from the sky in order to thrive and blossom.
Mike knows the same underlying principles hold true for people and this book takes you on a journey to success.
It starts by paying homage to the wise souls who planted the first seeds for understanding that human development is centered on the inner spirit. This spirit moves effortlessly in the direction of strengths and struggles when obsessing over weaknesses.
You need to know these pioneers and the depth of their ideas in order to be effective as a coach and Mike captures their essence and life purpose quickly and efficiently.
Grounded in this unconventional wisdom, you can act to help others through practice and Mike makes this easy by conveying simple and effective models that help individuals and teams become successful by building on strengths.
Great coaches bring out the greatness in others through compassionate discipline. Success is a by-product of this nurturing process.
The not so obvious weakness of this book is it doesn't explicitly ask prospective coaches to search for their inner light first.
However, it is hard not to do this if you take the messages from the pioneers seriously. They are great and inspiring thinkers who turned their thoughts into action and serve as role models for all of us.


The Perfect Swarm
The Perfect Swarm
by Len Fisher
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Insects are Marxists, 27 Sept. 2010
This review is from: The Perfect Swarm (Hardcover)
If Karl Marx was a biologist, he could have made a better case for social change by observing how insects do amazing things follwing very simple rules.
Len Fisher does this for him by explaining the science behind how insects, birds and fish improve their chances for survival through behaviour and construction of communal homes by following simple rules. The science is made easy as a result of Len's capable storytelling approach and his ability to demonstrate the business benefits using actual business examples. The practical applications reinforce how virtually any business could benefit from thinking out of the hive.

This product does what it says on the tin. While it won't cure Rosacea, it helps minimise inflamation while providing an evening of skin tone.

Rosacea sufferers, like myself, must be vigilant for products that can clean without inflaming the condition. This product does the job very well.
