Innovation is the life-blood of all enterprises, public and private. Their competitiveness depends upon it. Those that succeed recognise that all of their people are inherently creative and, by proper management, can both release and manage that creativity for the ultimate benefit of all stakeholders. The Nurturing Innovation Pocketbook explains how managers can create an environment in which innovation thrives. It identifies the numerous barriers to innovation, organisational and self-imposed by individuals, and describes how through positive intervention these blocks can be cast aside. All innovation comes with a degree of risk. To manage the process successfully, the manager must determine the required level of innovation (four are described in the book, from incremental to transformational) and assess the associated risk. The manager must also be supportive of his team, acting as advisor, coach, promoter, sounding-board, resource provider and defender when ideas don't work out. Nurture not stifle is author Doug Miller's message!

The ability to be positive is much more than a genetic inheritence (you can't blame your parents for everything!)'. Trainer, writer and resource developer Douglas Miller specialises in positive mental attitude and firmly believes that we can learn more positive approaches to life and work. In this pocketbook he sets out a wide range of practical techniques recommending that each person find the ones that work for them. 'In any situation, no matter what the circumstances, we can choose how we react. We frequently choose to do little until it's too late...the tough part is to choose to act on the opportunities.'

Written for leaders at all levels - strategic, organisational and team level - the Leadership Pocketbook explains how to inspire, influence, deal with change and achieve objectives. Illustrated throughout, the book adopts a practical approach, setting out the principles of leadership, the role of the leader, the skills required for effective leadership and the key challenges facing leaders in today's business environment. This 2nd edition sees the addition of a new section about leaders and social responsibility. "Contemporary business leaders must be aware of the major forces shaping society today and understand how their organisations need to respond and contribute to these challenges", author Fiona Dent writes. She is Director of Faculty Development at Ashridge where she is also Programme Director for the Influencing Strategies and Skills Programme. A focus of the book, described by the author as 'perhaps the most necessary skill for any leader', is self-awareness - to know yourself, to realise what your leadership strengths and weaknesses are and when you must continue to develop. "With admirable clarity, Fiona Dent distils the salient leadership issues and skills. Every potential leader and every leader with potential should find a place for this book in their pocket or bag." Philip Hodgson, Director of Leadership Programmes, Ashridge "A practical, easy to use guide for all levels of leadership. It covers a broad range of topics in sufficient detail to make it usable both for fresh learning and for reference." Richard Nicholson, Management Development Manager, Novartis Pharmaceuticals UK Ltd

The Mentoring Pocketbook - now in its third edition - shows how to design and manage a mentoring scheme, how to prepare to be a mentor, how to conduct mentoring sessions, how to maintain the relationship through the different stages and how to evaluate mentoring. Before looking at the actual mentoring process, the authors deal with the uses of mentoring within organisations (particularly in the context of managing change and mission/value statements) and explain how mentoring differs from coaching, training and appraisals. The process of mentoring is explained with the aid of a 3-stage model. This can be used to assess yourself as a mentor, as a map to guide you through the process, as a review tool and as a means to develop the mentee's ability to use the model independently. Subsequent chapters explore the mentor-mentee relationship and address key issues and questions. Although primarily aimed at the mentor, The Mentoring Pocketbook is also helpful to mentees. A consistently best-selling title within the Management Pocketbooks Series! "Mentoring is probably the most powerful developmental process people can experience. And when it works, it develops two for the price of one. The Mentoring Pocketbook is a no-nonsense primer for the first-time mentor or mentee." Prof. David Clutterbuck, Co-founder, The European Mentoring and Coaching Council "The Mentoring Pocketbook is the basis of the Mentoring Programme at Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts. Mentoring has been fundamental to supporting our approach to talent development throughout the company. Not only is it providing our top talent with the support they need to make the challenging transition to more senior leadership roles but it also supports our current generation of business leaders. Mentoring has greatly enhanced their unique contribution to the company and the company's learning and development culture." Bruce Harkness, VP Learning & Development, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts Management AG

The Project Management Pocketbook is a practical, step-by-step guide to managing a project through to completion. It looks at each key stage and identifies the management techniques that can be applied. From objective-setting through to implementation, the book stresses the importance of good communication, teamworking and influencing skills. All too often, books on this subject cover the process of project management and not the people aspects. This Pocketbook addresses both. "Project management requires a multitude of skills - from vision and planning, to monitoring, communication, leadership and, of course, delivery. This pocketbook pulls together best practice from these diverse areas into one simple, easy-to-read booklet. Refreshingly, it has been written from a general business perspective (rather than I.T.), and is therefore applicable to anyone managing change."Adrian Guttridge, Vice President UK & Ireland, EDS "A lively guide based on real events that any of us may encounter in our everyday life at work or (as I found out after reading this) at home."Johann de Waal, Director, International SOS Insurance Services Ltd
