The World's Leading Business Minds on Today's Most Critical Challenge

Featuring Gary Hamel, Rosabeth Moss Kanter, John Kotter, Dan Pink, Lynda Gratton, Tammy Erickson, Doug Ready, and others

"Thinkers50 . . . is the global barometer of the best management thinking." -- Professor Vijay Govindarajan, Tuck Business School at Dartmouth College

Is management an art or a science? It is both--and much more. Management may be the single most important business discipline, and yet it is the most difficult to define.

Stuart Crainer and Des Dearlove, creators of Thinkers50, begin by providing a thorough definition of management. Thinkers50 Management then reveals the most innovative management theories and insights from today's leading academics and practitioners. Chapters include:

Managing Processes Measuring Performance Managing Change Managing Talent Managing Globally Managing Emotionally Managing Millennials

Each book in the Thinkers50 series provides authoritative explanations of the concepts, ideas, and practices that are making a difference today, including specific examples and cases drawn from the original sources.

Quality, forward-looking management doesn't just drive profits; it is a vital contribution to creating a healthy, peaceful society. "Management matters," the authors write. "It shapes the world. It is the vital lubricant that protects us from chaos. It is a calling and an enabling force."

Whether you're facing current management challenges in our fast-paced global economy or are aspiring to rise in the ranks to become a successful manager, Thinkers50 Management gives you the insight and knowledge you need to excel in today's highly competitive business world.

The most powerful word in your leadership vocabulary is . . . THANKS!

Building a fully engaged, energized workforce is the key to business success. The Power of Thanks reveals how leading companies like Intuit, JetBlue Airways, IHG, Symantec, ConAgra Foods, and The Hershey Company empower employees through social recognition, in which the practice of mutual appreciation and trust directs and rewards higher performance.

Eric Mosley and Derek Irvine, executives at the world-renowned employee recognition firm Globoforce, explain why social recognition is so powerful and how you can apply it in your company. Case by case, they show how a carefully planned and consistently executed Culture of Recognition business strategy inspires:

Greater employee engagement and loyalty Stronger, more unified teams and departments A creative, innovative company culture Improved customer satisfaction Increased profitability and organizational health

Mosley and Irvine provide practical advice and proven examples for devising a powerful, growth-generating strategy that modernizes employee recognition for today's social, global, multi-generational and 24x7 wired workforce.

When employees participate in a culture that makes everyone a stakeholder in the organization's success, positive energy spreads like wildfire, and business results follow. Something so simple and powerful might work like magic, but it's really just common sense. It's smart management. It's long-term thinking.

It's The Power of Thanks.

An illustrated business fable that gives you the faith, courage and confidence to win in today's tough economic climate

Fear and uncertainty are staples of daily life in today's struggling economy. As bad as things can be, economic downturns also lead to new opportunities. It's easy to worry, give up and let fear paralyze you. However, you have more control than you think you do and how you handle adversity is your choice-and the only choice that matters. In fact, study history and you'll find that a lot of people and organizations made a name for themselves and grew their businesses during recessions and downturns. These successful people and organizations all shared similar characteristics and took similar actions to thrive while others merely tried to survive. You can do the same.

In The Shark and the Goldfish, Jon Gordon shares an inspiring fable about Gordy, a pampered goldfish who gets swept out to sea. Desperate for food, Gordy meets a kind shark who teaches him the ultimate lesson-Goldfish wait to be fed. Sharks go find food. Gordy also learns that the difference between a full and empty stomach is our faith, beliefs and actions. In the face of adversity and lean times, this is a business fable that reinforces a proven truth: You can't control the events in your life. But you can control how you respond and in turn this determines the outcome.

A business fable that teaches valuable lessons on the importance of working hard, maintaining a locus of control and focusing on positive choices instead of negative voices, Written by Jon Gordon, bestselling author of The Energy Bus and The No Complaining Rule Reveals how change is inevitable-but that you can make it your friend or foe. Provides an action plan filled with tips and strategies to thrive during change and adversity

If you're facing tough economic times, The Shark and the Goldfish will motivate you, inspire you, and give you the confidence you need to thrive during changing times.
