You might think you are a people person. But are you really having the right effect on those around you? Are you actually undermining success for yourself – and others?
Be prepared to have your world turned upside down and open your eyes to a whole new way of living and working.
Through a series of entertaining stories, this astonishing book will reveal how most of us are not fulfilling our potential – in our personal lives and at work – because of ‘self-deception’. It will show you how to escape your box of self-deception, and change for the better in a lasting way:
- Don’t focus on what others are doing wrong.
Do focus on what you can do to help.
- Don’t worry whether others are helping you.
Do worry whether you are helping others.
        - Don’t try to be perfect. Do try to be better.

By following this book’s advice, you can deepen you ideas, personal happiness, strengthen your relationships, improve your leadership skills, build teamwork – and increase your success in everything you choose to pursue.
You’ll never see yourself - or others – in the same way again.


In the face of the most perilous challenges of our time—climate change, terrorism, poverty, and trafficking of drugs, guns, and people—the nations of the world seem paralyzed. The problems are too big, too interdependent, too divisive for the nation-state. Is the nation-state, once democracy's best hope, today democratically dysfunctional? Obsolete? The answer, says Benjamin Barber in this highly provocative and original book, is yes. Cities and the mayors who run them can do and are doing a better job.

Barber cites the unique qualities cities worldwide share: pragmatism, civic trust, participation, indifference to borders and sovereignty, and a democratic penchant for networking, creativity, innovation, and cooperation. He demonstrates how city mayors, singly and jointly, are responding to transnational problems more effectively than nation-states mired in ideological infighting and sovereign rivalries.


A wall of silent resentment shuts you off from someone you love....You listen to an argument in which neither party seems to hear the other....Your mind drifts to other matters when people talk to you....

Vern Donovan is from the ‘old school’ of Shire Clerks: ‘headmasters’, guiding staff to efficiently operate a multi-million-dollar business – The Council.

Once these talented people were brought together, the ‘headmaster’ led them in developing the skill of listening to the shareholders – the ratepayers who elected their representatives, the Councillors and their Chairman, or mayor.

In the old school, the elected Chairman and Councillors listened to the people and brough their wishes to the meeting table.

Vern Donovan was the man who turned those wishes into reality – mundane things like water supply sewerage, garbage removal and roads. They started as tracks, then formed gravel and over the years, as money could be found, were bitumen sealed.

Roads, Rates, Rubbish. Forgotten today.

In Yours Sincerely, you will see Vern’s self-effacing management style brought about the trust vital for the Electricity Commission and the Council to work together for Vern’s ‘Great Outcome’.

Ever struggled with poor performing staff and wanted to know the secret of high performance work cultures? Simple, throw out performance appraisals and other punitive performance management processes and introduce Coffee Conversations. It's a no-brainer. A relaxed, casual conversation over a cup of coffee fixes all performance issues and the return on investment is spectacular. That's right, eliminate complex and demotivating control systems, start treating people well, engage them in the decisions that affect their work and empower them to self-manage their own outcomes and the simple secret of high performance will appear. Based on 25 years of practical experience and research by Shane Garland and Dr Grant Donovan, Coffee Conversations explores how high performance work cultures form spontaneously when leaders take time each day to relax with their staff, sip a coffee and discuss better ways of running the business. Unambiguously, managers who do their people work first and their paperwork second, produce the best performance outcomes and the greatest places to work. Coffee Conversations is a storybook of practical examples and supportive data that questions why any organisation would waste precious time and money on expensive and complex leadership training programs, when regular coffee conversations will deliver a trusting work culture and guaranteed performance success. While many leadership books are either full of academic theory, large strategic ideas or curriculum based, directive leadership education, Coffee Conversations is full of short, practical stories from the iconic Australian companies, Qantas and Woolworths, and a myriad of international experiences that will leave you inspired.

In his first complete text on the ADKAR model, Jeff Hiatt explains the origin of the model and explores what drives each building block of ADKAR.

Learn how to build awareness, create desire, develop knowledge, foster ability and reinforce changes in your organization. The ADKAR Model is changing how we think about managing the people side of change, and provides a powerful foundation to help you succeed at change. After more than 14 years of research with corporate change, the ADKAR model has emerged as a holistic approach that brings together the collection of change management work into a simple, results oriented model. This model ties together all aspects of change management including readiness assessments, sponsorship, communications, coaching, training and resistance management.

All of these activities are placed into a framework that is oriented on the required phases for realizing change with individuals and the organisation. The ADKAR perspective can help you develop a "new lens" through which to observe and influence change. You may be working for change in your public school system or in a small city council. You may be sponsoring change in your department at work. You may be observing large changes that are being attempted at the highest levels of government or you may be leading an enterprise-wide change initiative.

The perspective enabled by the ADKAR model allows you to view change in a new way. You can begin to see the barrier points and understand the levers that can move your changes forward. ADKAR allows you to understand why some changes succeed while others fail. Most importantly, ADKAR can help your changes be a success.


Conceived by Chris Grey as an antidote to conventional textbooks, each book in the 'Very Short, Fairly Interesting and Reasonably Cheap' series takes a core area of the curriculum and turns it on its head by providing a critical and sophisticated overview of the key issues and debates in an informal, conversational, and often humorous way.

An engaging guide through the cacophony of competing perspectives and models of leadership, the new edition includes an expanded discussion of contemporary topics like followership, gender, ethics, authenticity, and leadership and the arts, set against the backdrop of the global financial crisis.


The contents of this book are the result of Phil’s consultancies, seminars and workshops over a decade. This means that the content is applied, focused and relevant to specific Australian issues (as well as those arising in other countries).

The major issues confronting businesses seem to be understanding staff and clients, communication, self-motivation, personnel (staff retention/dismissal, discrimination/harassment), time management, dealing with difficult clients/staff, negotiation/persuasion and handling others.

These are some of the topics dealt with in the book. Some strategies to yield improvement are included, but the aim is to encourage every reader to develop his/her own strategies that are specifically designed to work in his/her own unique environment.


Life is full of ups and downs for all of us. In this book I suggest that our present-day actions and conclusions are greatly influenced by our past experiences. I outline my experience at being brought up on an aboriginal mission station and participating in a local government centric career to try and put some logic into the illogical, and often taboo, subjects of politics and religion.

Throughout my career, I developed a mantra that has never failed me:

'Always believe a politician will act like a politician and you will never be disappointed when they do.'

I identify a case where a community was duded out of $10 million.

I purport that the media has enormous impact on the governments we ultimately elect, and I propose a scenario whereby we, as citizens, can grab our momentum back and have meaningful national conversations for our great nation on the way forward.

I also suggest that to get through life, a sense of humour is an absolute necessity.

Welcome to The Colours of my Life.

In The Five Dysfunctions of a Team Patrick Lencioni once again offers a leadership fable that is as enthralling and instructive as his first two best-selling books, The Five Temptations of a CEO and The Four Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive. This time, he turns his keen intellect and storytelling power to the fascinating, complex world of teams.

Kathryn Petersen, Decision Tech's CEO, faces the ultimate leadership crisis: Uniting a team in such disarray that it threatens to bring down the entire company. Will she succeed? Will she be fired? Will the company fail? Lencioni's utterly gripping tale serves as a timeless reminder that leadership requires as much courage as it does insight.

Throughout the story, Lencioni reveals the five dysfunctions which go to the very heart of why teams even the best ones-often struggle. He outlines a powerful model and actionable steps that can be used to overcome these common hurdles and build a cohesive, effective team. Just as with his other books, Lencioni has written a compelling fable with a powerful yet deceptively simple message for all those who strive to be exceptional team leaders.


Genghis Khan is history's greatest conqueror. As a teenager he was an outcast fleeing enemies on a mountain in northern Mongolia, an exile, a nobody. Yet it took only twenty years for Genghis to build the largest land empire in history – four times the size of Alexander’s, twice the size of Rome’s.

How did he do it? What lessons does his life reveal about the nature of leadership? What is ‘greatness’ in leadership? What traits did Genghis possess exactly? Were they unique, or might some apply in other times and other places – even here and today?

In Leadership Secrets of Genghis Khan, John Man re-examines the life of Genghis Khan to discover the qualities, characteristics and strategies that made him the great leader that he was. The answers are sometimes surprising. Genghis was far from just the tyrant that history records, but rather a leader of exceptional vision and modernity. And many of the secrets of his success are as valuable and applicable in today’s competitive business world as they were in rallying the Mongol hordes.

Did The Internet Change Your World
While You Were Looking the Other Way?

The internet has changed our world in three ways: Fast, flat, and free.

The world is faster. Customers and clients are more demanding. They expect a faster turnaround, faster responses to their requests, and faster resolution to problems.
At the same time, we’re flattening hierarchies, barriers, and structures: Employees don’t respect organizational hierarchy; your products and services can be offered from China and India; and your customers are smarter, savvier ad more sophisticated than ever before.
What used to cost a lot is now free – or almost free: Google takes away your expertise; low-cost competitors drive down your prices; and passionate amateurs trump paid professionals every time.

The good news is that there’s never been a better time to take advantage of these changes.
Unfortunately, most organizations don’t know the rules have changed. They think their Internet marketing is about branding, hype, advertising, mass markets, needs, databases, transactions, copywriting and better products and services.
IT’s not. Its about identity, value, reputation, niches, wants, communities, connections, buying frames and world-class experiences.
This book shows your what has changed, and gives you a practical strategy and road map to take advantage of opportunities.

The Regulatory Craft tackles one of the most pressing public policy issues of our time-the reform of regulatory and enforcement practice. Malcolm K. Sparrow shows how the vogue prescriptions for reform (centered on concepts of customer service and process improvement) fail to take account of the distinctive character of regulatory responsibilities-which involve the delivery of obligations rather than just services. In order to construct more balanced prescriptions for reform, Sparrow invites us to reconsider the central purpose of social regulation-the abatement or control of risks to society. He recounts the experiences of pioneering agencies that have confronted the risk-control challenge directly, developing operational capacities for specifying risk-concentrations, problem areas, or patterns of noncompliance, and then designing interventions tailored to each problem. At the heart of a new regulatory craftsmanship, according to Sparrow, lies the central notion, "pick important problems and fix them." This beguilingly simple idea turns out to present enormously complex implementation challenges and carries with it profound consequences for the way regulators organize their work, manage their discretion, and report their performance. Although the book is primarily aimed at regulatory and law-enforcement practitioners, it will also be invaluable for legislators, overseers, and others who care about the nature and quality of regulatory practice, and who want to know what kind of performance to demand from regulators and how it might be delivered. It stresses the enormous benefit to society that might accrue from development of the risk-control art as a core professional skill for regulators.

"Where has the year gone? I can't believe it's November already? It will be Christmas before we know it!"

Sound familiar?

We say it every year as it if was a surprise. Well actually we were there in October and all the months prior too!

There is no doubt we are busy. Everyone is busy. Busy is seductive. Busy is expected. It provides identity. It also helps us avoid a thought out response and allows us to genuinely not think about what we are busy doing. Busy can be great. The question of course is, are we busy and conscious doing what matters most?

Hannah's story is beautifully combined with very simple, practical advice and will allow you to quickly and easily take back control of your life and get busy doing what matters most.
