The new book from Leadership Coach and award-winning Educator Sarah Singer-Nourie shows you how to stop Managing, Start leading and Drive Bigger Impact

At some point, every single one of us has reached a point of frustration. A situation where we knew that we were having impact that was far less than what we were capable of. Large organizations are filled with smart people who have great ideas. Unfortunately, most of these people find themselves stymied in their ability to bring people to their full potential and ideas to fruition
It doesn't have to be that way.
In Tap Into Greatness, noted performance coach and educator Sarah Singer-Nourie reveals the key truths of having outsized impact, influence and power. It turns out that most of us aren't leading. We're simply managing. We're getting things done, but we're not inspiring others to excel beyond what's expected. Great leaders know better. They know leadership isn't magic. It's not just something you're born with. Leadership is learnable.
In this engaging and hands-on book, Singer-Nourie provides tools that have been developed over the last twenty years in her work with leaders and teams in corporate America, Silicon Valley startups, schools and non-profit organizations. The methodology is based on how people actually learn, rather than how most of us were taught in school. It leverages the insights of human motivation and the latest research in neuroscience to give leaders a roadmap for having impact.
Listeners who put the tools of Tap Into Greatness into practice have immediate and often surprising results. They find themselves able to influence colleagues who were previously unmoved. They're able to inspire teammates to go above and beyond the call of duty. And they create teams that make better decisions even when the leader isn't in the room.

The Book of Mistakes

Skip Prichard
Authors:
Skip Prichard

In the spirit of Fish! and The Go-Giver, Skip Prichard draws on a lifetime of studying success to share the 9 mistakes wildly accomplished people know not to make, so you can avoid them too! What if the world's most accomplished people are so successful because they avoid nine pitfalls in life that the rest of us are not aware of? In this self-help wrapped in fiction tale, Skip Prichard introduces a young man named David who with each passing day is becoming more disheartened and stressed. His life isn't turning out the way he thought it would. Despite having a decent job, apartment and friends, his life just feels hollow...until one day he meets a mysterious young woman and everything starts to change. David will meet nine people who have each discovered a core truth of achieving a successful and satisfying life by recognizing a key mistake they were making. Like David, most of us are repeating the same mistakes, and while we may learn from them it is often too late and the lesson comes with a good dose of pain. But what if we could identify the mistakes before we made them? This little parable is packed with wisdom that will help you discover and follow your personal purpose, push beyond your perceived capabilities and achieve more than you ever dreamed possible.

Mismatch

Ronald Giphart, Mark van Vugt
Authors:
Ronald Giphart, Mark van Vugt

Our brains evolved to solve the survival problems of our Stone Age ancestors, so when faced with modern day situations that are less extreme, they often encounter a mismatch. Our primitive brains put us on the wrong foot by responding to stimuli that - in prehistoric times - would have prompted behaviour that was beneficial. If you've ever felt an anxious fight or flight response to a presenting at a board meeting, equivalent to facing imminent death by sabre-toothed tiger, then you have experienced a mismatch.Mismatch is about the clash between our biology and our culture. It is about the dramatic contrast between the first few million years of human history - when humans lived as hunters and gatherers in small-scale societies - and the past twelve thousand years following the agricultural revolution which have led us to comfortable lives in a very different social structure. Has this rapid transition been good for us? How do we, using our primitive minds, try to survive in a modern information society that radically changes every ten years or so?Ronald Giphart and Mark van Vugt show that humans have changed their environment so drastically that the chances for mismatch have significantly increased, and these conflicts can have profound consequences.Reviewed through mismatch glasses, social, societal, and technological trends can be better understood, ranging from the popularity of Facebook and internet porn, to the desire for cosmetic surgery, to our attitudes towards refugees.Mismatches can also affect our physical and psychological well-being, in terms of our attitudes to happiness, physical exercise, choosing good leaders, or finding ways to feel better at home or work.Finally, Mismatch gives us an insight into politics and policy which could enable governments, institutions and businesses to create an environment better suited to human nature, its potential and its constraints.This book is about converting mismatches into matches. The better your life is matched to how your mind operates, the greater your chances of leading a happy, healthy and productive life.

Beyond the Mat

Julie Rosenberg
Authors:
Julie Rosenberg

Practicing yoga is an extremely popular way to get fit, but its underlying philosophy can offer so much more to calm the mind and discover untapped personal power. In BEYOND THE MAT, business leader, MD, and certified yoga teacher Julie Rosenberg shows you how to bring yoga out of the studio and into your personal and professional life to achieve success and become a more effective leader. She shares how yoga is more than just poses (though those do help with backs tired from hunching in front of the computer all day), with an explanation of the principles, real-life examples, and anecdotes from the author's own professional career. Yoga's philosophical principles extend far beyond the mat, for example:* Yama (yoga's moral precepts) apply to leadership--how we rightsize work in our lives, relate to colleagues, and cultivate compassion for ourselves and others* Dharana (being fully present) helps to manage time effectively, set healthy time limits on your work, and avoid distractions* Pranayama (breath control) mitigates stress and helps you stay calm in difficult situations

This Is How We Rise

Claudia Chan
Authors:
Claudia Chan

Women remain the disadvantaged sex throughout the world, despite centuries of progress toward equality. We are so close to a tipping point, as women have never held more power: women control social media, influence their families' buying and consuming habits, and are a powerful force in elections. But many times, individuals may see or experience a women's issue at work or in the world at large and feel they can't do anything about it. So how do we harness women's personal and collective power to bring about change and finally achieve gender equality?To business leader Claudia Chan, the key lies in empowering women to achieve their own personal potential while reigniting engagement in the feminist movement. It's not just about you--stepping up in your own life lets you lift other women up with you and paves the way for others to follow. In THIS IS HOW WE RISE, Chan shares how to get beyond the limiting beliefs that hold you back, transform feminine traits once thought of as weakness into assets, and cultivate the internal habits to succeed and lead. Then, she shows how to put that personal power to work at a wider level by identifying the issues that really matter to you, raising awareness, and getting authentically involved.

Every major accomplishment that's ever been achieved started with a first step. Sometimes it's hard; other times it's easy, but no matter what, you have to do it if you want to get anywhere in life.In INTENTIONAL LIVING, John Maxwell will help you take that first step, and the ones that follow, on your personal path through a life that matters.

Before we can successfully manage others we first need to manage ourselves.· Most of us do not naturally know how to manage, but we can learn.· Life as a manager is easier when we stop thinking about the effect of our actions on ourselves and think instead about their effect on others.· People don't want to be managed, but they absolutely need the security of being led.· Being respected is much more important than being liked!· Traditional time management techniques don't work for managers, so we need to rethink our approach to this most precious of all resources.· What we focus on we get more of; so we need to focus on the right things.
