4 Day Week
4 Day Week
In The 4 Day Week, entrepreneur and business innovator Andrew Barnes makes the case for the four-day week as the answer to many of the ills of the 21st-century global economy.



Barnes conducted an experiment in his own business, the New Zealand trust company Perpetual Guardian, and asked his staff to design a four-day week that would permit them to meet their existing productivity requirements on the same salary but with a 20% cut in work hours. The outcomes of this trial, which no business leader had previously attempted on these terms, were stunning. People were happier and healthier, more engaged in their personal lives, and more focused and productive in the office.



The world of work has seen a dramatic shift in recent times: the former security and benefits associated with permanent employment are being displaced by the less stable gig economy. Barnes explains the dangers of a focus on flexibility at the expense of hard-won worker protections, and argues that with the four-day week, we can have the best of all worlds: optimal productivity, work-life balance, worker benefits and, at long last, a solution to pervasive economic inequities such as the gender pay gap and lack of diversity in business and governance.



THE 4 DAY WEEK is a practical, how-to guide for business leaders and employees alike that is applicable to nearly every industry. Using qualitative and quantitative data from research gathered through the Perpetual Guardian trial and other sources by the University of Auckland and Auckland University of Technology, the book presents a step-by-step approach to preparing businesses for productivity-focused flexibility, from the necessary cultural conditions to the often complex legislative considerations.



The story of Perpetual Guardian's unprecedented work experiment has made headlines around the world and stormed social media, reaching a global audience over 4.5 billion. A mix of trenchant analysis, personal observation and actionable advice, THE 4 DAY WEEK is an essential guide for leaders and workers seeking to make a change for the better in their work world.

7 Secrets to Investing Like Warren Buffett
7 Secrets to Investing Like Warren Buffett
A complete guide for beginning investors who want to understand how to invest like Warren Buffett.

This is one of the first books to showcase both Warren Buffett's Value Investing technique and his life skills and habits for beginning investors.

Sustainable results often come from changes in lifestyle and habits; hence, the first section of the book discusses habits that one needs to adopt to be able to invest like Warren Buffett, and prepares readers for a lifelong journey of wealth building.

The second section examines specific stock-picking techniques. The authors look at timeless principles as well as latest ideas on where to find great investment ideas, and share specific financial indicators they look for in a good investment.

The authors explain valuation principles and techniques that help investors decide when to buy a stock. The techniques are inspired by investor and economist, Benjamin Graham, the 'father of value investing', and are vastly different from the common Wall Street wisdom of trying to time the market.

The final section of the book explains how the reader can build and track a portfolio of stocks.

Authors encourage readers to follow Warren Buffett's first rule of investing 'Never Lose Money', and explain three important steps that significantly lower risk:
- Choose good stocks with low risk
- Buy at a good price with margin of safety.
- Diversify into a basket of stocks.

Questionnaires, charts and graphs help explain techniques and habits simply.

A Good Time to be a Girl
A Good Time to be a Girl
Five years have passed since women were exhorted to `Lean In'. Over that time, the world has transformed beyond all expectations. But why should anyone `lean in' to a patriarchal system that is out of date? Why not change it entirely for the good of us all?

In A Good Time to be a Girl, Helena Morrissey sets out how we might achieve the next big breakthrough towards a truly inclusive modern society.

Drawing on her experience as a City CEO, mother of nine, and founder of the influential 30% Club which campaigns for gender-balanced UK company boards, her manifesto for new ways of working, living, loving and raising families is for everyone, not just women. Making a powerful case for diversity and difference in any workplace, she shows how, together, we can develop smarter thinking and broader definitions of success. Gender balance, in her view, is an essential driver of economic prosperity and part of the solution to the many problems we face today.

Her approach is not aimed merely at training a few more women in working practices that have outlived their usefulness. Instead, this book sets out a way to reinvent the game - not at the expense of men but in ways that are right and relevant for a digital age. It is a powerful guide to success for us all.

Alpha Girls
Alpha Girls
'ALPHA GIRLS will be a story to make you laugh and cry. It will inspire and infuriate you. It will be a must-read for women of all ages.' - Arianna Huffington



For all its trailblazing, world-shaping innovation, Silicon Valley has long been a mysterious, male-dominated world and, at its worst, a toxic environment in which to be a woman. Recent exposes have revealed sexist 'bro-cultures' at top tech companies, ranging from sexual harassment lawsuits in which women are routinely excluded from all-male ski trips to the partner at a leading VC firm who, when asked by a reporter whether there were talented females candidates on the job market, replied 'we're not prepared to lower our standards.'



How is it possible that a community with such forward-looking technology, could take such a backward approach to gender relations?



ALPHA GIRLS dives into this enigmatic world, going behind the scenes at Facebook, Microsoft, McAfee, Google, Tesla and more to reveal the history of Silicon Valley from the point of view of the women who have witnessed and participated in its rise to global domination of the business landscape. Julian Guthrie focuses on a small group of self-made women who, outnumbered and underestimated, helped launch the modern computer industry, and are today renowned figures in the VC world of the Valley.



ALPHA GIRLS is an inspiring, groundbreaking, true story about women taking enormous risks, playing by the men's rules, juggling work and family, all the while refusing to be limited by the expectations of others. These alpha girls - as well as men in the industry - have granted Julian incredible, unprecedented access to an otherwise closed community.

Authentic Gravitas
Authentic Gravitas
Having a powerful, meaningful impact on others is not about being the most dominant person in the room; it's about being intentional, curious, and courageous.



Organizational psychologist and executive coach Rebecca Newton has found that even her most successful clients still want more of one quality: gravitas. They want their words to carry weight, to have a positive, lasting impact on those around them.



Gravitas can seem like an elusive, intangible quality, but it isn't about adopting the style of another or being someone you're not. Newton draws on extensive research and experience coaching business leaders to show what underpins authentic gravitas and how anyone can develop it. She presents the counterintuitive idea that in order to be valued, we shouldn't spend all our time and energy trying to stand out from the crowd; instead, we should focus on the crowd - connecting with others and understanding their needs in order to make a significant difference.



Newton debunks the myths of gravitas and gives readers the practical tools to develop it by:

* Minimizing the gaps between intention, action, and impact

* Remaining true to yourself while adapting to work successfully with people who have different styles

* Choosing to be courageous regardless of how confident you feel - as you engage in courageous behaviours, confidence naturally builds



Authentic gravitas extends beyond commanding presence in the room during a key meeting; it's about the small things you can do beforehand, during, and in all the spaces in between - to be someone who genuinely adds substantive value in the workplace and beyond.
