“Creative Confidence” – Too often, companies and individuals assume that creativity and innovation are the domain of the “creative types.” But two of the leading experts in innovation, design and creativity show us that each and every one of us is creative. In a narrative that draws on their work with many of the world’s top companies, the authors identify the strategies to tap into our creative potential in our work lives.

“Finding Allies, Building Alliances” – How can leaders successfully bridge divides and turn competitors into collaborators? The authors explain how a well-chosen network can become a powerful alliance. Better collaboration can not only solve problems, but boost the competitiveness and resilience in all sectors.

“The Great Game of Business” – This book introduced the world to open-book management, a new way of running a business that created unprecedented profit and employee engagement. The revised and updated edition lays out an entirely different way of running a company. It was forged on the factory floors of the heartland by ordinary folks hoping to figure out how to save their jobs when their parent company, International Harvester, went down the tubes.
