Corporate Energy: How to Engage & Inspire Audiences by Chris Atkinson
NOW IS A CRITICAL TIME TO INCREASE THE PERSONAL IMPACT YOU HAVE ON COLLEAGUES, CUSTOMERS & STAKEHOLDERS.
Research into the subject of engagement and inspiration demonstrates the huge impact these elements can have on organisational culture, performance and individual careers. Unfortunately, the weight of research is not matched by clear and descriptive ‘how to’ guides explaining the techniques available to achieve these things. There are few programmes, very few books and mostly it’s been assumed you have either “got it, or you haven’t”.
This simply isn’t true.
Corporate Energy is the first book to offer a complete guide to the skills and techniques to become a more inspirational and engaging communicator. It is essential reading for anyone who needs to engage audiences whether it be in meetings, training courses or formal presentations.
You will learn innovative ways to introduce and discuss content with groups as well as techniques and strategies to energise audiences, transform boring topics and get interest, handle hostile questions or audiences, leverage storytelling as a vehicle for leadership and use novel technologies to engage others.
Beyond Ego: The Inner Compass of Conscious Leadership by Thor Olafsson
ONCE WALKED, THE PATH OF THE INNER COMPASS LEAVES EVERYONE TRANSFORMED
UNCOVER A FUTURE WITH UNLIMITED LEADERSHIP POSSIBILITIES
Leaders today understand that too much ego can be destructive and can have broad-ranging consequences for a team or a company. When a leader is operating purely from ego, instead of focusing on what’s best for the team or the company, the focus is often turned to what best satisfies their own personal agenda. Although most of us are aware of the damaging impacts that these patterns can have, many of us lack the knowledge or awareness to identify our own ego patterns, or the strategies to move beyond them.
This book offers a highly practical and experiential path towards identifying ego patterns and leading beyond them. It introduces a unique path—the Inner Compass—that has been tried and tested with top-level executives and senior teams around the world. This path helps solve the conflict that exists between subconscious, ego-driven defence mechanisms and the inner self‘s higher purpose. It’s a path that starts with self-awareness, and then continuously expands to include the impact on both teams and entire organisations. It is a path that raises awareness and enables the reader to embrace conscious leadership, not just as a concept, but in every interaction in their leadership role.
