Rocket Fuel: The One Essential Combination That Will Get You More of What You Want from Your Business

by Gino Wickman and Mark C. Winters

Discover the vital relationship that will take your company from "What’s next?" to "We have liftoff!"

Visionaries have groundbreaking ideas. Integrators make those ideas a reality. This explosive combination is the key to getting everything you want out of your business. It worked for Disney. It worked for McDonald’s. It worked for Ford. It can work for you.

From the author of the bestselling Traction, Rocket Fuel details the integral roles of the Visionary and Integrator and explains how an effective relationship between the two can help your business thrive. Offering advice to help Visionary-minded and Integrator-minded individuals find one another, Rocket Fuel also features assessments so you’re able to determine whether you’re a Visionary or an Integrator.

Without an Integrator, a Visionary is far less likely to succeed long-term, and realize the company’s ultimate goals—likewise, with no Visionary, an Integrator can’t rise to his or her full potential. When these two people come together to share their natural talents and innate skill sets, it’s like rocket fuel—they have the power to reach new heights for virtually any company or organization.

Superbosses: How Exceptional Leaders Master the Flow of Talent

by Sydney Finkelstein

What do football coach Bill Walsh, restauranteur Alice Waters, television executive Lorne Michaels, technol­ogy CEO Larry Ellison, and fashion pioneer Ralph Lauren have in common? On the surface, not much, other than consistent success in their fields. But below the surface, they share a common approach to finding, nurturing, leading, and even letting go of great people. The way they deal with talent makes them not merely success stories, not merely organization builders, but what Sydney Finkelstein calls superbosses
 
After ten years of research and more than two hundred interviews, Finkelstein--an acclaimed professor at Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business, speaker, and executive coach and consultant--discovered that superbosses exist in nearly every industry. If you study the top fifty leaders in any field, as many as one-third will have once worked for a superboss.

Winning Well: A Manager's Guide to Getting Results---Without Losing Your Soul

by Karin Hurt and David Dye

It can feel like a rigged game. Executives set aggressive goals, so managers drive their teams to burnout trying to deliver. Or, employees seek connection and support, so managers focus on relationships . . . and fail to make the numbers. The fallout is stress, frustration, and disengagement, and not just among team members--two-thirds of managers report being disengaged. 

To succeed, managers cannot choose between results and relationships. They need both: They must get people to achieve while creating an environment that makes them truly want to. Winning Well offers managers a quick, practical action plan--complete with examples, stories, and online assessments. They will learn how to: 

Stamp out the corrosive win-at-all-costs mentality - Focus on the game, not just the score - Reinforce behaviors that produce results - Sustain energy and momentum - Correct poor performance without drama - Build productive relationships - Be the leader people want to work for 

Today's hypercompetitive economy has created tense, overextended workplaces. Keep it productive, rewarding, and even fun with this one-stop success kit.

America Needs Talent: Attracting, Educating & Deploying the 21st-Century Workforce

by Jamie Merisotis

With falling wages and rising inequality, persistent unemployment, failing schools, and broken cities, have America's best days come and gone?

In America Needs Talent, Jamie Merisotis, a globally recognized leader in philanthropy, higher education, and public policy, explains why talent is needed to usher in a new era of innovation and success, and why deliberate choices must be made by government, the private sector, education, and individuals to grow talent in America.

What if you paid for education based on what you actually learned, instead of the time you spent in class? What if your visa application was processed as if you were an asset to our nation's growing talent pool, instead of by Homeland Security? Merisotis proposes bold ideas to successfully deploy the world's most talented people--from rethinking higher education to transforming immigration laws, revitalizing urban hubs, and encouraging private sector innovation.

The outlook may be gloomy now, but it doesn't need to be. The second American Century can happen--by developing and deploying the next thinkers, makers, and risk takers who will power America's knowledge economy in the 21st century.

Beyond Happy: Women, Work, and Well-Being

by Beth Cabrera

For women the complexities and increased pressures of trying to combine their growing role in the workplace with their essential role at home can negatively affect their well-being. In the workplace, women continue to face gender discrimination, along with unrealistic expectations and a lack of support from those they work for and with. Neither societal norms nor work models have kept up with women's evolving roles.

Beyond Happy: Women, Work, and Well-Being provides women with strategies based on the latest research in positive psychology, which they can use to enhance their well-being. Readers will learn about three key elements that will enable them to thrive people, peace of mind, and purpose and discover why these elements are important for well-being.

For more than a decade, Dr. Beth Cabrera has surveyed and interviewed over a thousand women to gain insight into how they've balanced their careers and their family responsibilities. She asked women about the strategies they employed to manage the challenges they faced, practices they used to help minimize stress and find happiness in their lives, and how they've been able to flourish, despite being pulled in so many directions. Women at all stages of their lives and careers will benefit from Dr. Cabrera's research and experience
