With a foreword by Alex Osterwalder. The future of work is already here. Customers are adopting disruptive technologies faster than your company can adapt. When your customers are delighted, they can amplify your message in ways that were never before possible. But when your company’s performance runs short of what you’ve promised, customers can seize control of your brand message, spreading their disappointment and frustration faster than you can keep up. To keep pace with today’s connected customers, your company must become a connected company. That means deeply engaging with workers, partners, and customers, changing how work is done, how you measure success, and how performance is rewarded. It requires a new way of thinking about your company: less like a machine to be controlled, and more like a complex, dynamic system that can learn and adapt over time. Connected companies have the advantage, because they learn and move faster than their competitors. While others work in isolation, they link into rich networks of possibility and expand their influence. Connected companies around the world are aggressively acquiring customers and disrupting the competition. In The Connected Company, we examine what they’re doing, how they’re doing it, and why it works. And we show you how your company can use the same principles to adapt—and thrive—in today’s ever-changing global marketplace.

Engage your passion to be the one that makes a difference. Whether you are a CEO, housewife, student, manager, or church leader, you have a circle of influence and the ability to shape your culture for God’s purpose--to be a change agent. Os Hillman explains the process God uses to raise up His change agents in culture, demonstrated in biblical leaders like David, Daniel, Esther, and Moses. With details from his own experiences and profiles of modern-day change agents, Hillman shows how you too can have greater influence no matter what your age or status in life. Our culture is shaped by the seven mountains of cultural influence: business, government, media, arts and entertainment, education, the family, and the church. Featuring a chapter on each of the seven cultural mountains, Change Agent describes where we are, what we must do to influence these strategic areas, and what success will ultimately look like.

This Naked Mind has ignited a movement across the country, helping thousands of people forever change their relationship with alcohol. Many people question whether drinking has become too big a part of their lives, and worry that it may even be affecting their health. But, they resist change because they fear losing the pleasure and stress-relief associated with alcohol, and assume giving it up will involve deprivation and misery. This Naked Mind offers a new, positive solution. Here, Annie Grace clearly presents the psychological and neurological components of alcohol use based on the latest science, and reveals the cultural, social, and industry factors that support alcohol dependence in all of us. Packed with surprising insight into the reasons we drink, this book will open your eyes to the startling role of alcohol in our culture, and how the stigma of alcoholism and recovery keeps people from getting the help they need. With Annie's own extraordinary and candid personal story at its heart, this book is a must-read for anyone who drinks. This Naked Mind will give you freedom from alcohol. It removes the psychological dependence so that you will not crave alcohol, allowing you to easily drink less (or stop drinking). With clarity, humor, and a unique blend of science and storytelling, This Naked Mind will open the door to the life you have been waiting for. "You have given me my live back." ---Katy F., Albuquerque, New Mexico "This is an inspiring and groundbreaking must-read. I am forever inspired and changed." -Kate S., Los Angeles, California "The most selfless and amazing book that I have ever read." -Bernie M., Dublin, Ireland

Distinguished authors like Daniel Kahneman, Dan Ariely, and Nassim Nicholas Taleb have written much about the flaws in the human brain when it comes time to make a decision. Our intuitions and passions frequently fail us, leading to outcomes we don't want. In this book, Eyal Winter, Professor of Economics and Director of the Center for the Study of Rationality at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, wonders: why? If our emotions are so destructive and unreliable, why has evolution left us with them? The answer is that, even though they may not behave in a purely logical manner, our emotions frequently lead us to better, safer, more optimal outcomes. In fact, as Winter discovers, there is often logic in emotion, and emotion in logic. For instance, many mutually beneficial commitments—such as marriage, or being a member of a team—are only possible when underscored by emotion rather than deliberate thought. The difference between pleasurable music and bad noise is mathematically precise; yet it is also the result of evolution. And our inherent overconfidence—the mathematically impossible fact that most people see themselves as above average—affords us advantages in competing for things we benefit from, like food and money and romance. Other subjects illuminated in the book include the rationality of seemingly illogical feelings like trust, anger, shame, ego, and generosity. Already a bestseller in Israel, Feeling Smart brings together game theory, evolution, and behavioral science to produce a surprising and very persuasive defense of how we think, even when we don't.

Over the years, we have partnered with some of the most radical, outrageous, experimental people in the world, and we've witnessed first hand the power of thinking wrong. We've seen seemingly crazy ideas yield incredible results, and we have endeavored to study and understand the secrets and actions of those who successfully operate outside the predictable expectations of business and of culture. We began to see a connection in how these people behave and make decisions, in how they communicate their work, and in whom they deflect from the status quo. Our gut told us something was going on here. Wrong Thinkers were able to overcome obstacles both in themselves and in the culture at large to achieve exceptional results. We have since identified important moments when, for the rest of us, the flame of possibility gets extinguished. We have developed six Think Wrong Practices that simultaneously advance compelling solutions while defending them from attacks by well-meaning Right Thinkers.We also see tha conviction, determination, and persistence alone are not enough to escape the status quo, or those hell-bent to protect it. Thinking right already has its language and its tools; it's already got its best practices, defenses, and case studies. In the think-right world of brainstorming, focus groups, marketing surveys, number crunching, bottom -lines, and ROI-focused agendas, it's hard to defend something nebulous and new. Wrong thinkers need their own language, frameworks, tools, and techniques to counter the existing norms. This book is our attempt to arm you--and people everywhere--so you may conceive the inconceivable and bring along others to help implement your status-quo-busting solutions.In the coming chapters, you'll learn about the six Think Wrong Practices that we have developed over the past two decades. These practices are particularly effective at key moments when right thinking tries to stop you.
