Leadership is defined as showing up with confidence, being connected to others and committed to a purpose in a way that inspires others, according to Peter Bregman. In this book, he unlocks the secrets of highly successful leaders and pinpoints the missing ingredient that makes all the difference. He argues that being a successful leader is not about what you say or do, but whether you are willing to experience discomfort and uncertainty saying and doing it. If you are willing to feel everything, you can do anything. Leading with Emotional Courage is an essential guide for developing emotional courage and draws on Bregman’s popular blogs in the Harvard Business Review.

Rasmus Hougaard and Jacqueline Carter reveal the results of evidence-based research in leadership that surveyed more than 35,000 leaders and interviewed more than 250 C-suite executives. This research revealed that 77% of leaders think they do a good job of engaging their people, yet 88% of employees say their leaders do a bad job with engagement. It seems that employees are more disengaged than ever, so how can leaders better engage their teams? The authors say better engagement comes from organisations putting people at the centre of their strategy, and developing managers who lead with mindfulness, selflessness and compassion. The Mind of the Leader uses examples from hospitality organisation, Marriot; management consulting company, Accenture; and LinkedIn and represents a redefinition of what it takes to be an effective leader.
Generation Z has the ability to connect every human being on the planet to each other and, in the process, provide opportunities for each person to be educated and socially and economically engaged. But how does this have an impact on business? The authors answer this question in The Gen Z Effect. They envision a future where disruption and reinvention is the norm, impacting all aspects of our lives. From new approaches to marketing to the obliteration of intellectual property, this book provides a view about why Generation Z is best equipped to handle the problems of today and how business leaders can prepare themselves for an era of disruption.

We all need people to support us, however, a lot of people are reluctant to ask for help or ask for help in the wrong way. In Reinforcements, Heidi Grant explains why this is the case and gives the reader insight into areas such as the right ways to ask for assistance, techniques that the reader can use to increase their chances of getting help and how to feel good about asking for help. She also looks into common mistakes when asking for help such as apologising profusely and sounding too empathetic. Grant has dedicated many years to researching the subject of social intelligence and has written a book that shows the reader how to remain likable while triggering the motivations that make others gladly rush to come and help.
Businesses talk about putting the customer first but in reality few deliver on this. In this book, authors Martin Newman and Malcolm McDonald give the reader practical tips, tools, guidelines and frameworks for implementing customer-focused marketing strategies at every step on the customer journey. They also argue that if businesses keep their customers as a key focus, they can identify areas of improvement and implement the relevant steps to transform the business. 100 Practical Ways to Improve Customer Experience also focuses on industries, such as travel, finance and leisure that are facing disruption from organisations such as Uber, Airbnb and Amazon. As such, other organisations in these industries face more pressure than ever to adopt new practices to remain relevant. This book is full of examples and an excellent resource for professionals and MBAs looking to transform their business.
