Your Leadership Moment

Democratizing Leadership in an Age of Authoritarianism (Social Science, Philanthropy, Charity)

By Eric R. Martin

Leading Every Moment

Each of us has the potential for a leadership moment. Reading this book will help you find yours.” —Dr. Marty Linsky, faculty at Harvard Kennedy School & author of The Practice of Adaptive Leadership

#1 New Release in Business & Money Skills and Office Management

You face leadership moments every day. Would you recognize a leadership moment if it came your way? Would you know what to do when it did?

You can be a leader. Your Leadership Moment brings adaptive leadership to life for novices and advanced leadership practitioners alike. The framework it provides draws on the extensive personal research, travel, conversations, and reflections of author Eric Martin, a prominent leadership expert. His  quest to democratize leadership has taken him around the world―from the White House and corporate boardrooms to the foothills of the Himalayas. Through poignant stories of both success and failure, Your Leadership Moment teaches what’s possible when people discover the capacity and courage to lead regardless of identity, history, or access to power and financial capital.

You can change the world. Your Leadership Moment is an unforgettable account of the democratizing leadership of three ordinary people leading extraordinary change. It’s an exciting expansion of Adaptive Leadership―an unconventional and provocative leadership practice developed at Harvard University―that can help anyone learn to lead. It provides practical tools and techniques to discover and leverage your own leadership moments in the service of creating a more beautiful world.

In this book you’ll understand:

  • A Leadership Moment and the key concepts of Adaptive Leadership
  • How to stop solving the wrong problems and start solving the right problems
  • How to think politically and mobilize others to make real, positive change

Readers of leadership books like The Practice of Adaptive LeadershipLeadership on the Line, or Immunity to Change should read Your Leadership Moment.

The Myth of Multitasking, Second Edition

By

Multitasking Doesn’t Work—Learn What Does!

“…multitasking is, in fact, a lie that actually wastes time, energy, and money. Most of all, it robs us of life and our relationships with others.” —Chuck Norris, world-renowned actor and martial artist 

Through anecdotal and real-world examples, The Myth of Multitasking proves that multitasking hurts your focus and productivity. Instead, learn how to be more effective by doing one thing at a time.

Productivity and effective time management end with multitasking. The false idea that multitasking is productive has become even more prevalent and damaging to our productivity and well-being since the first edition of The Myth of Multitasking was published in 2008. In this revised and updated second edition, author and productivity expert Dave Crenshaw provides a solution for the chaos of distraction that multitasking creates—and a way to combat the temptation to constantly switch between tasks.

Learn how to actually get things done. Dave Crenshaw takes the idea of multitasking as a productivity tool and smashes it to smithereens. But rather than leaving you with the burden of wading through the wreckage all by yourself, he shows you how to focus, move forward, and free up more time for what you value the most.

In this new edition of The Myth of Multitasking, discover:

  • Updated research on how and why multitasking doesn’t work
  • Worksheets to help you figure out how to manage your day effectively
  • Easy, actionable steps to manage your life well and accomplish your dreams and goals

Finance Secrets of Billion-Dollar Entrepreneurs

Take Control of Your Startup―and Watch it Grow

“This book delivers clear thinking for entrepreneurs who want to control their own destiny and grow their business without the need for venture capital.” −Joel Cannon, co-founder and president of Cannon Technologies

An analysis of success.  Award-winning professor of entrepreneurship Dileep Rao presents readers with a detailed guide to success through his interviews and analysis of billion-dollar entrepreneurs (those who built a venture from startup to more than $1 billion in sales and valuation) and 100 million-dollar entrepreneurs (startup to $100 million).

Build your business without venture capital (VC) funding.  Rao is here to show entrepreneurs that it is possible to start a business without outside help. He shares how more than 90 percent of America’s billion-dollar entrepreneurs in the VC era (since 1946) avoided or delayed VC, and instead used finance-smart expertise―skills that combine business-smart, capital-smart, and leadership-smart strategies.

The right mix of internal and external financing. It takes more than one person to grow a business from the bottom up. But that doesn’t mean we have to sacrifice control of the venture in the process. Armed with 23 years of experience as a financer, Rao shows readers how to optimize internal financing so as to attract external financing. By keeping control of the venture, entrepreneurs keep more of the wealth, as well.

In Finance Secrets of Billion-Dollar Entrepreneurs learn about:

  • Pre-financing, financing and post-financing skills and strategies of finance-smart entrepreneurs
  • The ins and outs of venture finance, applicable to anyone looking to start a business
  • Tips on increasing capital productivity and attaining financially sustainable entrepreneurship

If you’ve enjoyed entrepreneurship-focused titles like The Lean StartupThe $100 Startup, or Venture Deals, then Rao’s Finance Secrets of Billion-Dollar Entrepreneurs is the next book for you.
