    When you get the right balance in life, you can do amazing things: create, perform, lead a team, build a great company, raise a family. But so often the scales tip, and we feel overwhelmed and stressed. Michael Townsend Williams, an adman turned yoga teacher and mindfulness coach, is an advocate of 'welldoing' - leading a busy and productive life, but not at the expense of our health and well-being. And key to this? Our breath.

    The most important brands in the world make us feel something. They do that because they have something they want to change. And as customers, we want to be part of that change. These companies have a reason to exist over and above making a profit: they have a purpose. Yes, we love the product they make. But the thing we love most about them is the change they are making.

    So much passes us by unnoticed. We multitask, switch between screens, work faster. When was the last time you paused to consider a beautifully made object or stunning natural landscape? Yet this is when our spirits lift and our soul is restored. Designer Alan Moore invites us to rethink not only what we produce - whether it's a website, a handmade chair, or a business - but how and why.

    Everyday we deal with the unplanned and the unexpected - from a broken toaster to losing (or gaining) a major client. Our natural ability to improvise gets us through. But we feel as if we're winging it, rather than acting with courage and conviction. Robert Poynton teaches an acclaimed method to some of the world's biggest brands and companies. Improvisational skills that an actor might use onstage are honed and applied to the everyday business of work and life.

    Real-world leadership is very different from all that the media would have us believe. Forget the dashing swashbuckler - effective leadership is typically understated. It's the myriad small things that make the big things possible. In Do Lead, Les McKeown demolishes the myths that have paralysed leadership in our modern era, then provides new, relevant tools for the job. You'll discover that we can all lead. And what's more, we should.

    This book is about disruption. About doing things differently. About having ideas that will change the world. That will at least change your world. It's also about delivering those ideas. Do Disrupt is a workbook that will help you create or refine your business idea and take it from concept to market. It will encourage you to define your customer, identify the competition...and then outsmart them. You'll also find out why you need a chat with your Nan and a tape measure. If you're starting a new business or you're the rebel inside, it's not enough to shake things gently. It's about thinking big. Being innovative. Making a difference.

    Why is it that we seem astonished, even grateful, when someone really hears us? When they lean in and give us their time and attention. How has this basic act become such a rare commodity? Has the one-way street of social media 'broadcasting' really marked the end of conversation and listening? Do Listen is about rediscovering the lost art of listening. How to form deeper connections, generate moments of wonder, and achieve breakthroughs after a standoff or stalemate. Yes, listening can take time. And it can be uncomfortable. Yet it is a skill that can be cultivated and mastered.
