Done - Why You Fail to Finish Your Projects and What To Do About It

DONE

If you want to overcome your most important business challenge or create your next big thing then you’ll need to create a project. And, you’ll need to fulfil that project. If not… well… you know… The number one reason we fail to finish our projects is a lack of motivation, inspiration and passion. This book is based on the seven core principles of our popular program Project Passion. If traditional project management doesn’t work for you, here is the alternative. It’s practical, refreshing and compelling.

Geoff McDonald - Disruptive Leadership

Disruptive Leadership (Draft)

Is your Leadership Program pendling old thinking? Despite the billions of dollars spent every year on leadership courses, consultants and training, public opinion suggests we have a leadership crisis. Our respect for and the reputations of our leaders across business, politics and beyond are at all time lows. What is going wrong? Is it the way we are leading? Or, is Leadership, as we know it, dying? In Disruptive Leadership, Geoff McDonald highlights the evolving history of leadership from the immortal gods through to social media. He also presents the key leadership ideas of the past few decades and a clear path forward into the world of decentralized leadership. It’s a powerful discussion piece for all leaders and all leadership programs. It’ll question what you know about leading the way.

What the #$%?! is going on?

Geoff McDonald’s latest book is provocatively called What the #$%?! Is Going On because this is the battle cry of our generation. It’s both a desperate and anxious cry that we don’t know what’s going on. And, it’s a statement of opportunity of the turbulent times in which we live. It’s been written as fuel for those in business who want to lead the way, explore new opportunities and make informed business decisions. It’s also for those people who want a first level of defence against disruption from direct competitors, previously anonymous global players and seemingly unrelated technologies. It’s guaranteed to get you thinking!

Plus, they help bring your ideas to life.

This book takes a very different view: that the computer will dramatically transform the entire construction industry including the architects role within it. It includes more than 30 fundamental new directions and opportunities for the future of architecture.
