Eager to change the world? Learn how you can have a greater social impact through your everyday purchases. The money we routinely spend on food, clothes, gifts, and even indulgences is an untapped superpower. What would happen if we slowed down to make more thoughtful decisions about what we buy? For "mom and pop" stores across the country, and artisan and agricultural communities around the world, every purchase matters. Consumers--whether individuals, small businesses, or corporations--are paying more attention than ever to how their goods are made; and retailers--large and small--are responding by investing in ethical and eco-friendly production. Yet figuring out which brands to support can feel overwhelming. Jane Mosbacher Morris has devoted her career to creating economic opportunities for vulnerable communities around the world, and in this valuable book, she shares her passion and insights on how we, as consumers, can create positive change too. Covering topics that range from why not all factories are evil, to how our morning coffee can be the easiest way for us to use our purchasing power for good, Buy the Change You Want to See makes us better informed consumers. Morris tells inspiring stories about how victims of human trafficking and natural disasters have been empowered by economic opportunity, and she offers practical ideas about how we can support these communities through our purchases--whether it comes to jewelry made from recycled materials in Haiti, sustainably grown and ethically sourced coffee and chocolate from farmers in some of the poorest regions of the world, or mass-produced jeans and shoes made in factories where workers are guaranteed decent working conditions and a fair wage.

Power and Control. Everyone wants it. Everyone has it. Why so few people use it. The silent art of power and control is to see the potential force in everything and arrange it so that, if released, it works in your favor. We all have thoughts, but we don't all achieve our dreams. That's because thoughts may be negative or positive in nature. All successful people, however, have one thing in common -- determination! To be a success, you must first determine to be so. Though not always a conscious decision, the seed that leads to action is to first determine. Picture in your mind the able, earnest, useful person you desire to be, and the thought that you hold is hourly transforming you into that particular individual you so admire.

Many people today are writing about and seeking to understand the concept and practices of leadership. There are a great many reasons for the popularity of the topic, including the fact that organizations are faced with challenges like never before. Some of these challenges might include the ability to align the organization to better support the mission or upgrading technology to enhance production. Nevertheless, the concept of leadership is relevant to any aspect of ensuring effectiveness in the marketplace for organizations and in managing change. This book represents my experience of 25-plus years of supervising, managing and leading folks in the public sector (military and Federal government), learning about strategic leadership in the military and more recently, my doctoral program. It centers on strategic leaders, the essentials that are needed for them to be effective and successful in organizations. It argues that the strategic leader must use the competencies of strategic leadership to influence the future environment, technology, processes, structure, strategy, and the workforce with the understanding that these are just some of the components that affect the successful operation of an organization.

If you wanted to be a successful chef you would read Gordon Ramsay's autobiography. He tells you how he became the successful cook and businessman he is today. His book provides you with a model of how he did it. Allen Carr's book does the same. It tells how he became a world-renowned therapist, helping millions of people to give up smoking. Change Your Life is for everyone else. Those who have the best will in the world, but never get round to using it. Those who start something, but don't finish it. Those who fail, and then fail again. Drawing on John Bird's own life experiences, this book outlines the mistakes he has made and the subsequent lessons he has learned along the way. Change Your Life is about getting lost, feeling self-pity, feeling a failure, disliking the world and oneself; and then climbing out of it. John Bird will teach you how to be a success.

Due to the economic crisis, organizations are accelerating the dramatic changes they're making in the way they run their businesses. Employees, faced with these rapid and often undesirable changes, need help — and so do the organizations they work for. If change is going to be a constant in people’s lives and the number and type of changes are going to happen faster, it is imperative that people develop the ability to live in this constantly changing world without feeling like victims, but rather like partners in the changes they face. Change Better is about how to develop the critical skills and tools necessary to cope with change at work and in one's personal life. These skills and the tools that go with them help people gain control over the changes in their lives. Jeanenne LaMarsh shows the ways in which readers can help themselves to change and the ways in which they will be able to accept, deal with, and maximize change with the greatest speed and least pain.

More than 100 books have been written on branding, but none of them take you through a step by step process of building a brand. Most business leaders are overwhelmed with the day to day operations of running a business and view branding as something that should be left to the marketing department. But in fact, branding it inextricably linked to strategy and the leader of the organization must be the brand champion. This book is the only one of its kind that addresses the link between strategy and brand by using an evaluation tool (the BQ™ Test) and by teaching clients how to build a strategy-based brand. The book also uses the powerful VRIO Model introduced by Dr. Jay Barney of Ohio State University to give companies a practical way to determine their true points of differentiation and a sustainable competitive advantage in an environment of increasing complexity and competition.
