"This is an extraordinary and invaluable book that offers an original approach and fresh insights to a subject that is now, rightly, attracting so much attention. Whilst painstaking in its portrayal of the systemic problems facing the planet, and clear about the implications that these present to us, this is nevertheless a profoundly optimistic work, an affirmation of the good in people and their ability to heal the system" UK Servant Leadership
Making a Difference
Strategies and Tools for Transforming Your Organisation
Author: Bruce Nixon
Paperback 210 x 148mm 260pp £14.99 1-85252-372-7 2001
A classic, cutting-edge management book which received astonishing plaudits and endorsements when first published in hardcover now available for the first time in paperback. This ground-breaking, yet friendly and inclusive book is about transformation. In our global, technological age everyone is involved in transformation and innovation, be it in business, other types of organisations, the world community, politics or the family.
"In recent years, the topic of organisation change and renewal has been the subject of a stream of management books. Bruce Nixons contribution can stand comparison with the best of these. First, it is very readable. Second and most importantly, it is highly realistic in its approach, facing up to the difficult issues that have to be worked through if lasting organisation transformation is to be achieved, and giving sound, practical advice on how to tackle them. I can strongly recommend it to managers who want to make a real difference."

The Strategic Mind
The journey to leadership through strategic thinking
Author: Bob Gorzynski
Foreword by Dave Snowden
Paperback A5 252pp £14.99 9781852526078 2009
The world as we know it is changing rapidly and beyond recognition. To move towards a 'world that works for all' will require a profound shift in the way that we think - and the capacity for each one of us to become a leader in initiating change in our own lives, businesses and communities to begin to live in long-term sustainable harmony with the world around us. "The Strategic Mind" provides a framework for developing a deeper, more holistic form of thinking using seven core disciplines: know your own story; think small; go slowly; serve others; reflect; be simple; and, dream.
