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

Meaningful: The Story of Ideas That Fly

by Bernadette Jiwa

One of Inc Magazine's Top Business Books of 2015.

Our new digital landscape has spawned an entrepreneurial culture and the belief that anyone with a laptop and an Internet connection has the power to change the world—to create an idea that flies. But for every groundbreaking business that started this way, a thousand others have stalled or failed. Why? What’s the secret to success? What do Khan Academy, the GoPro camera, the Dyson vacuum cleaner and Kickstarter have in common?

After years of consulting with hundreds of innovators, creatives, entrepreneurs and business leaders to help them tell the stories of their ideas, I have discovered something: every business that flies starts not with the best idea, the biggest budget or better marketing, but with the story of someone who wants to do something—and can’t.

We don’t change the world by starting with our brilliant ideas, our dreams; we change the world by helping others to live their dreams. The story of ideas that fly is the story of the people who embrace them, love them, adopt them, care about them and share them. Successful ideas are the ones that become meaningful to others—helping them to see what’s possible for them.

Our ideas fly when we show others their wings.
