Why We Buy is based on hard data gleaned from thousands of hours of field research -- in shopping malls, department stores, and supermarkets across America.

What will distinguish these companies from the traditional 'controlling' organizations will be mastery of certain basic disciplines.

Real Estate Uncovered: A Probing Look Behind the Facade of Australia's Property World, Peter O'Malley
111 Peter O'Malley Real Estate Uncovered: A Probing Look Behind the Facade of Australia's Property World
Authors First 243943 Australia 2013 095865171X / 9780958651714 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine The real estate industry is masterful at creating and promoting its own message as news. Have you ever heard an agent tell a buyer it is not the right time to buy? Real Estate Uncovered is designed to help you cut through the hype in order to make an informed decision while avoiding hidden traps and dirty tricks. These brutal strategies and their unsavoury tactics will be laid bare in Real Estate Uncovered. What you once viewed as normal real estate practice before reading this book will be viewed in an entirely new light. The book exposes a system that over quotes to sellers, conditions them into expecting less and then crunches them on pricing, profits on needless advertising and eventually uses a sales process that undersells the paying client's major asset. Buyers are given low false price quotes to entice them to an auction that they have no chance of winning, spending thousands of dollars on property inspection reports in the process. Real Estate Uncovered also highlights in a much fairer and more effective way to buy or sell. The reader will know how to identify their trusted real estate advisor having read Real Estate Uncovered. 223 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

Imperial Life in the Emerald City: Inside Baghdad's Green Zone, Rajiv Chandrasekaran
112 Rajiv Chandrasekaran Imperial Life in the Emerald City: Inside Baghdad's Green Zone
Bloomsbury 241261 Great Britain 2008 0747592896 / 9780747592891 Softcover Good Condition From inside a surreal bubble of pure Americana known as the Green Zone, the US-led Coalition Provisional Authority attempted to rule Iraq following the fall of Saddam Hussein's regime. Drawing on interviews and internal documents, Rajiv Chandrasekaran tells the memorable story of this ill-prepared attempt to build American democracy in a war-torn Middle Eastern country, detailing not only the risky disbanding of the Iraqi army and the ludicrous attempt to train the new police force, but absurdities such as the aide who based Baghdad's new traffic laws on those of the state of Maryland, downloaded from the net, and the twenty-four-year-old who had never worked in finance put in charge of revitalising Baghdad's stock exchange. "Imperial Life in the Emerald City" is American reportage at its best. 356 pages. Tanning to pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

24 Days: How Two Wall Street Journal Reporters Uncovered the Lies that Destroyed Faith in Corporate America, Rebecca Smith, John R. Emshwiller
113 Rebecca Smith, John R. Emshwiller 24 Days: How Two Wall Street Journal Reporters Uncovered the Lies that Destroyed Faith in Corporate America
HarperBusiness 236186 USA 2003 First Edition 0060520736 / 9780060520731 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine This is the story of two Wall Street Journal beat reporters -- one covering the energy industry just after the chaotic California electricity crisis; the other chasing stock swindlers. Together these journalists were ideally placed to uncover one of the great cons of the century. Here is a story about the fall of a great company, and the practice of journalism, marked by skill, luck, and determination. 24 Days is the gripping, untold chronicle of the investigative process -- often haphazard but imbued with insight and commitment -- that broke through Enron's stonewalling and exposed its inner workings, setting in motion a chain of events that shook the public's trust in big business, Wall Street, and the accounting profession. In August 2001, Jeffrey Skilling unexpectedly resigned from his job as CEO of Enron after only six months in the top job. While Smith -- who had been covering the California energy crisis -- was away, the Wall Street Journal Los Angeles bureau chief drafted Emshwiller to interview Skilling. During a rambling conversation, Emshwiller stumbles onto an unlikely admission from the corporate prodigy, which partly confirms the journalists' suspicions that Skilling didn't quit for "personal reasons." This odd revelation raised ominous questions about Enron's much-bragged-about success. The two reporters pick and pull at the mystery, and with the help of confidential sources, who understood Enron's inner workings, expose an audacious scheme: Andrew Fastow's off-balance-sheet partnerships that hid Enron's failings and inflated its value by billions of dollars. Refusing to be put off by Enron's arrogant dismissal of anyone who questioned the company's practices, Smith and Emshwiller relied on their instincts and common sense to shine a light into Enron's "black box" finances. Climaxing in the brief period after Enron released disastrous earnings in October 2001, 24 Days gives a reporter's-eye view of the tug-of-war between journalists and a giant corporation. Each day, a new story uncovered another fact. Each day, the company issued denials. When the doubts and questions reached critical mass and momentum, the stock market cast its final vote of no confidence 400 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

Maverick! The Success Story Behind The World's most Unusual Workplace, Ricardo Semler
114 Ricardo Semler Maverick! The Success Story Behind The World's most Unusual Workplace
Century 240610 Australia 1993 0712654518 / 9780712654517 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good This is an account of an extraordinary company "turnaround" achieved by the ultimate in participatory management. Ricardo Semler inherited his family company, Semco (manufacturer of marine pumps, industrial dishwashers, truck filters and mixing equipment), when he was aged 19. By 1980 it was on the brink of bankruptcy - but a decade later, during a period of savage recession in Brazil, it had been transformed into a rapidly growing company with profits of 10% on sales of $37 million. This was achieved by Ricardo Semler throwing out the rule book: getting rid of all manuals and written procedures. Workers make the decisions previously made by their bosses. Assembly-line workers can come and go as they please set their own schedules and production schedules. Every corporate decision is put to the vote. Some workers even set their own pay levels. This was all achieved by a series of 30 programmes designed to change the entire working environment. Ricardo Semler is Chief Executive Officer of Semco, a Brazilian manufacturing company. 272 pages.

Why Should Anyone Be Lead By You? What It Takes To Be An Authentic Leader, Rob Goffee, Gareth Jones
116 Rob Goffee, Gareth Jones Why Should Anyone Be Lead By You? What It Takes To Be An Authentic Leader
Harvard Business School Press 243834 USA 2006 First Edition 1578519713 / 9781578519712 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine Too many companies are managed not by leaders, but by mere role players and faceless bureaucrats. What does it take to be a real leader--one who is confident in who she is and what she stands for, and who truly inspires people to achieve extraordinary results? Rob Goffee and Gareth Jones argue that leaders don't become great by aspiring to a list of universal character traits. Rather, effective leaders are authentic: they deploy individual strengths to engage followers' hearts, minds, and souls. They are skillful at consistently being themselves, even as they alter their behaviors to respond effectively in changing contexts. In this lively and practical book, Goffee and Jones draw from extensive research to reveal how to hone and deploy one's unique leadership assets while managing the inherent tensions at the heart of successful leadership: showing emotion and withholding it, getting close to followers while keeping distance, and maintaining individuality while "conforming enough." Underscoring the social nature of leadership, the book also explores how leaders can remain attuned to the needs and expectations of followers. Why Should Anyone Be Led By You? will forever change how we view, develop, and practice the art of leadership, wherever we live and work. 241 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.
