“This book completely changed the way I think about creative innovation. . . . A must read” (Cal Newport, bestselling author of Deep Work). Business leaders say they want creativity and need real innovation in order to thrive. But according to startling research from management professor Jennifer Mueller, these same leaders chronically reject creative solutions, even as they profess commitment to innovation. Mueller’s research reveals that it’s not just CEOs but educators, parents, and other social trendsetters who struggle to accept new and creative ideas. Mueller parses the tough questions that these findings raise. Do we all have an inherent prejudice against creative ideas? Can we learn to outsmart this bias? Creative Change combines analysis of the latest research with practical guidance on how to shift your mindset, and offers a wealth of counterintuitive recommendations to help you embrace the creative ideas you want. “If we all crave creativity so much, why do we reject new ideas so often? Jen Mueller’s smart new book unravels this puzzle.” —Daniel H. Pink, New York Times–bestselling author of When and Drive “Mueller, an accomplished scholar in the management field, has developed a well-formulated argument for creativity. Her ideas and research need to be available to academics, business practitioners, and, really, everyone.” —Library Journal

"Change when you are still strong and when change appears unnecessary-do not wait for the day when you have no option but to change." Jamshed J Irani, Foreword to this book Managing change is like performing a trapeze act. It involves thrill, passion, courage, adventure and perfect timing along with high degree of risk. Nowadays, change is a corporate need, not just for growth but also for simple survival. There are several books on 'managing change', but what sets this book apart is its different tone and tenor, its 'storytelling' technique and its critical and in-depth treatment of the subject matter. The Acrobatics of Change: Concepts, Techniques, Strategies and Execution is divided into two parts. The first part, written by Moid Siddiqui, Managing Director, Intellects Biz, Hyderabad, deals with the concept of change dynamics and change techniques, including brainstorming, trigger techniques, SWOT analysis and wild idea sessions. The second part, penned by the former Chairman and Managing Director of Singareni Collieries Company Ltd. (SCCL), R. H. Khwaja, tells the true story of the company's turnaround, which is being published for the first time. It will be an invaluable source of information for all professional managers. The book is a perfect blend of theories, concepts and practical techniques. It will be of great interest to CEOs, entrepreneurs, research scholars, consultants and students of management.

Why do leading political figures arise when they do? Does sibling position determine political destiny? Originally published in 1992, a leading Jungian analyst at the time, Louis Stewart wrote an intriguing study of the influence of family and sibling position on the destiny of the individual and on the future of society. He shows how the four basic sibling positions are related to corresponding styles of political leadership, and uses examples of US presidents and UK prime ministers to illustrate his point. Stewart argues that world leaders owe their pre-eminence to a matching of political zeitgeist with sibling position within the family and he provides fascinating and persuasive material on major political figures, including Hitler, Saddam Hussein, Gorbachev, Stalin and Ghandi.

The scope of Erika Fromm's profound contributions to the clinical and research literature in hypnosis and related areas is reflected in this volume, which consists of chapters written by those who have worked closely with the noted psychologist and/or have been significantly influenced by her. The subject matter presented here ranges from detailed accounts and personal observations relating to Fromm's distinguished career, to some very new and valuable data on the psychophysiological correlates of hypnosis, the phenomenology of self-hypnosis, and an integrative model for short-term therapy. Several extensions of clinical technique for the treatment of trauma and severe psychopathology are also discussed. Professional therapists with an interest in personal growth, self-awareness, and creative mastery, whether or not they already have an interest in hypnosis, will derive significant benefits from this book. Readers who have previously eschewed hypnosis may find that this volume stimulates an interest that enriches their clinical practice and/or research.

It includes relevant information from the disciplines of psychology, philosophy, neuroscience, theology, and spirituality, and suggests ways that we can generate inner peace and joy for ourselves and for others.

Creative Technological Change draws upon a wide range of thinking from organisational theory, innovation studies and the sociology of technology. It explores the different ways in which these questions have been framed and answered, especially in relation to new 'virtual' technologies. The idea of metaphor is used to capture the differences between, and strengths and weaknesses of various ways of conceptualising the technology/organisation relationship. This approach offers the possibility of developing new ways of thinking about, viewing and ultimately responding creatively to the organisational challenges posed by technological change.
