In their groundbreaking book,  Women Don’t Ask ,  Linda Babcock and Sara Laschever uncovered a startling fact: even women who negotiate brilliantly on behalf of others often falter when it comes to asking for themselves. Now they’ve developed the action plan that women all over the country requested—a guide to negotiation that starts  before  you get to the bargaining table. Ask for It   explains why it’s essential to ask   (men do it all the time) and teaches you how to ask effectively, in ways that feel comfortable to you as a woman. Whether you currently avoid negotiating like the plague or consider yourself hard-charging and fearless, Babcock and Laschever’s compelling stories of real women will help you recognize how much  more  you deserve whether it’s a raise, that overdue promotion, an exciting new assignment, or even extra help around the house. Their four-phase program, backed by years of research, will show you how to identify what you’re really worth, maximize your bargaining power, develop the best strategy for your situation, and manage the reactions and emotions that may arise—on both sides. Guided step-by-step, you’ll learn how to draw on the special strengths you bring to the negotiating table to reach agreements that benefit everyone involved. This collaborative, problem-solving approach will propel you to new places both professionally and personally—and open doors you thought were closed. Because if you never hear no, you’re not asking enough.

While the art of War is a well-known work, its creator sun Tzu remains a mystery. What is known about sun Tzu is that he was a Chinese military strategist, General and philosopher who lived in the Spring and autumn period of ancient China (approximately 771 to 476 BC). ancient Chinese records differ about his place of birth – The Spring and autumn annals (state records of the Zhou dynasty) state that he was a native of qi; shiji (records of the Grand historian) state that he was a native of qu. Both, however, agree that he was a military General of King ho-lu of Wu. The name sun Tzu is also not his birth name but a title meaning “master sun”; his birth name was likely sun Wu.

Cold calling - making contact with strangers - is the biggest fear confronting businesspeople, especially those who work in sales and marketing. "Put me in front of a customer and I can persuade them to buy anything ... just don't ask me to cold call!!" Yet cold calling is unavoidable and something which has to be done (and not just in sales and marketing) if you are to sell and make people aware of your business. This book, based on a very successful course given to thousands of people, shows the art and science of making first contact with complete strangers. The secret is in the preparation and approach, rather than having the gift of the gab, that will enable even yellow-bellied chickens to make that call with confidence. 10 reasons you must buy this book and start winning new customers tomorrow! 1. It is written by somebody who does it successfully every week. 2. Cold calling is fun, and much, much easier than you think. 3. Cold calling is 10 times more effective and less costly than "networking parties," website promotion or advertising. 4. 95% of your competitors are too scared to do it. That means there's a lot of business out there waiting for you. 5. The only people who tell you that cold calling doesn't work are those too scared to do it themselves. 6. You actually overcome your fear by becoming an even bigger "chicken." 7. "No's" are not bad things. Go for more "no's." Two is not enough - success usually comes on the sixth attempt. 8. Seven simple questions will usually get you to a "yes." 9. The 5% of sellers who do it properly are taking 85% of the new business in your market. By using the material in this book you will make sure you join the few. 10. "Build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door"? The biggest lie in business! Your market is now too crowded with businesses that look just like yours (however much you kid yourself). So if not cold calling, how are you going to find new customers? [Facsimile reprint edition]

Today we need a new type of leader. As we enter the fourth industrial revolution, we need leaders with the wisdom to address new ways of working, to make a positive change in the world. One of the key premises of Mindfulness-Based Leadership is that leadership is about being, not becoming. We make a bigger difference by looking within ourselves than by striving to become what we are not. While mindfulness has often been perceived as a solitary activity, this book reveals how it is applicable on a wider scale - in groups, businesses and the wider community. Mindfulness-Based Leadership shows us how to balance self and organisational goals, to erase the real and imagined internal conflicts between what we believe in and what we do in reality. Mindfulness expert Kathirasan K presents a unique 56-day course on Mindfulness-Based Leadership. Each day introduces a new facet of mindfulness - through guided introspection, acceptance and mindful practice - illuminating the ways in which we can unlock the leader within ourselves.

Digital technology is simultaneously friend and foe: highly disruptive, yet it cannot be ignored. Companies that fail to make use of it put themselves in the line of fire for disintermediation or even eradication. But digital technology is also the biggest opportunity to reposition incumbent product-making businesses by thinking about how they conceive, make, distribute and support the next generation of goods in the marketplace. Reinventing the Product looks at the ways traditional products are transforming into smart connected products and ecosystem platforms at a rate much faster than most organizations think. Eric Schaeffer and David Sovie show how this reinvention is made possible: by AI and digital technologies, such as IoT sensors, blockchain, advanced analytics, cloud and edge computing. They show how to deliver truly intelligent, and potentially even autonomous, products with the more personalized and compelling experiences that today's users, consumers and enterprises expect. Reinventing the Product makes a stringent case for companies to rethink their product strategy, their innovation and engineering processes, and the entire culture to build the future generations of successful 'living products'. Featuring case studies from global organizations such as Faurecia, Signify, Symmons and Haier and interviews with thought leaders and business executives from top companies including Amazon, ABB, Tesla, Samsung and Google, this book provides practical advice for product-making companies as they embark on, or accelerate, their digitization journey.
