The world is changing faster and faster and organizations need to adapt. However, change projects have an exceptionally high failure rate. John P. Kotter, Vanessa Akhtar and Gaurav Gupta explain why this is the case in a clear and coherent manner. For them, there is no question that companies place far too much emphasis on management and far too little on leadership. With clear arguments and numerous examples, they support their thesis and at the same time show ways in which the change to an adaptable organization can succeed.

Unlearning Hierarchy

Expedition into self-organization.

New work is a buzzword. But often the much-vaunted new work is just a show event. It's hotly debated on panels - and in everyday corporate life, the same old hierarchy games play out as they did 50 years ago. This book puts its finger in the wound. It doesn't come around the corner with new tools. On the contrary: it comes with pain and agony. According to the authors, a company must go through this if it really wants to allow self-organization. Unlearning hierarchies is quite a hard process. Fortunately, reading this book is not.

Personality makes a career

This sets the course for your own career path.

Impostor syndrome is what psychologists call persistent self-doubt. Despite objectively good performance, those affected cannot shake the feeling of being incompetent. An astonishing number of managers are familiar with this phenomenon. Overcoming self-doubt is the subject of this book. The first part deals with theoretical and conceptual basics. The second part contains a whole series of exercise modules that can be implemented immediately in self-coaching. Anyone who wants to acquire more psychological security and self-confidence will be well served by this book.
