            In 2011, international businessman Peter Holmes Court left the executive world and found himself living deep in rural France with only his seven-year-old twin girls for company. Peter was struggling as a single father in a foreign country - unsettled by the sudden move away from ...a traditional job, and completely baffled by the society around him. His only plan- to ride L'Etape du Tour, the challenging amateur leg of the Tour de France. In an effort to find some new friends in the community - and a bike for the race - he discovered the region's small bicycle factory. He was soon spending his days there- photographing his custom bike being built, meeting the locals, and learning about the rich traditions of artisan craftsmanship. Trying to enjoy the simple things and become a better father, Peter slowed down, and started to reflect seriously on history, industry and the structure of our modern economy. He and his daughters finally began to put down roots and understand the beauty and calm of a small-scale existence - and a very different approach to excellence and the well-lived life. This is one man's compelling, informative and funny story about the wisdom of children, the nature of work today, and the science of bicycles.

            The way we manage organizations seems increasingly out of date. Survey after survey shows that a majority of employees feel disengaged from their companies. The epidemic of organizational disillusionment goes way beyond Corporate America-teachers, doctors, and nurses are leaving ...their professions in record numbers because the way we run schools and hospitals kills their vocation. Government agencies and nonprofits have a noble purpose, but working for these entities often feels soulless and lifeless just the same. All these organizations suffer from power games played at the top and powerlessness at lower levels, from infighting and bureaucracy, from endless meetings and a seemingly never-ending succession of change and cost-cutting programs. Deep inside, we long for soulful workplaces, for authenticity, community, passion, and purpose. The solution, according to many progressive scholars, lies with more enlightened management. But reality shows that this is not enough. In most cases, the system beats the individual-when managers or leaders go through an inner transformation, they end up leaving their organizations because they no longer feel like putting up with a place that is inhospitable to the deeper longings of their soul. We need more enlightened leaders, but we need something more: enlightened organizational structures and practices. But is there even such a thing? Can we conceive of enlightened organizations? In this groundbreaking book, the author shows that every time humanity has shifted to a new stage of consciousness in the past, it has invented a whole new way to structure and run organizations, each time bringing extraordinary breakthroughs in collaboration. A new shift in consciousness is currently underway. Could it help us invent a radically more soulful and purposeful way to run our businesses and nonprofits, schools and hospitals? The pioneering organizations researched for this book have already cracked the code. Their founders have fundamental

            In his sophomore year of college, Mark Zuckerberg created a simple website to serve as a campus social network. But the site caught on like wildfire, and soon students nationwide were on Facebook. Today, Facebook is nearly unrecognizable from Zuckerberg's first, modest iteration.... It has grown into a tech giant, the largest social media platform and one of the most gargantuan companies in the world with over 2.23 billion global users. Love it or hate it, there is no denying the power and omnipresence of Facebook in daily life. And in light of growing scandals surrounding election-influencing 'fake news' accounts, the mining of its users' personal data, and growing discontent with the actions of its founder and CEO, never has the company been more central to the international conversation.

            Forget the old concept of the 9-5. Companies around the world are redesigning the work week to increase efficiency, health and happiness in their workers. A growing number of businesses are shortening their working week to address problems with low productivity, poor mental healt...h and unequal working opportunities. Workers are still paid the same salary for a four-day week and the results are revolutionary. In Shorter, best-selling author Alex Pang studies these trailblazers where managers are reporting their teams to be: - More creative in their problem solving - Happier and with lower stress and anxiety and cases of burnout - More productive Pang will reveal step-by-step how they have gone about making these changes, the challenges and solutions and, most importantly, how you can do the same.

            Trust plays a critical part during the online shopping process. Engaging customers and building long-term brand trust is vital for enterprises that rely on e-commerce. But the rise of digital and social media platforms has created a new commercial environment, meaning current str...ategic models and branding practices are quickly becoming outdated and ineffectual. With greater corporate transparency, consumer empowerment and online activism come new commercial opportunities and pitfalls. Exploring both the positives and negatives, Digital Trust outlines the ways in which SMEs and e-SMEs can successfully and authentically engage within social media communities to influence their brand trust and reputation. Developed from the author's research, Digital Trust proposes new strategic models to create and reinforce consumer trust as well as build corporate value through social media platforms. The book provides an overview of how organizations can use these platforms to conduct their own research into increasing trust and engagement, with specific industry considerations taken into account, as well as explores the growing impact of e-currencies on businesses.

            Share looks at how new business models are being created based on the disruptive idea of 'sharing'. Uber, AirB&B, Skype, Alibaba, Google, Netflix and WeChat (China's answer to Whatsapp) are all based on the sharing of information, assets and human capital, and a new and dynamic e...conomy is already emerging. Traditional consumer and industrial models of western capitalism are having to adapt to the 'sharing' concept, but few traditional organisations seem to understand the implications of the 'share' mindset for how they operate and compete. The workforce of the future is growing up in a networked age with completely different attitudes to 'sharing', and wants flexibility and greater control over their lives - where and how they work, and what and how they buy. This presents a new opportunity for corporates to reinvent management practices to boost agility in this new environment. Share will help companies to thrive through the reshaping of their standard models of hierarchy, power and bureaucracy and the assumed rules of engagement, offering a holistic approach to change, with practical techniques, examples and case studies drawn from the authors' experience in helping companies to gain competitive advantage.
