    Dr David White - Author of "Disrupting Corporate Culture"

    Dr David White - Author of "Disrupting Corporate Culture"

    Episode 132 of the Business Bookshelf - Dr David White - Author of "Disrupting Corporate Culture" 

    Today our guest is Dr David White.

    David is a partner and co-founder of Ontos Global, and a cognitive anthropologist focusing on new approaches to organizational culture and change based on the emerging science of the cultural mind. At Ontos Global he helps organizations manage and sustain transformation.

    David is the author of “Disrupting Corporate Culture: How Cognitive Science Alters Accepted Beliefs About Culture and Culture Change and Its Impact on Leaders and Change Agents”.  This book bridges the gap between the latest research on cognitive science and culture, providing a valuable guide for change leaders, CEOs, and practitioners on how to sustainably work with and change this important resource.

    It answers many of the major questions that have plagued culture work, such as:


    Why so many CEOs and management consultants preach culture change when so few culture interventions actually succeed

    Why CEOs persist in believing "culture starts at the top" when virtually no research in anthropology supports that claim

    Why most culture shaping approaches have no answer for how to affect culture in global companies

    Why culture doesn’t cause us to do anything, yet we persist in believing that somehow it does

    Why so many culture-shaping projects focus on corporate values despite the fact modern science shows why changing personal values is exceedingly difficult.


    The book can be purchased here.

    Lisa Koss - Author of “Leading for Learning"

    Lisa Koss - Author of “Leading for Learning"

    Episode 131 of the Business Bookshelf - Lisa Koss - Author of “Leading for Learning".  

    Today our guest is Lisa Koss.

    For more than 25 years, Lisa has been working at the intersection of individual, team and organizational transformation. As partner and co-founder of ONTOS Global, her passion is to support executive clients to dramatically increase their impact through increased self-awareness, resiliency, agility, and the capacity to act wisely and decisively through complex and uncertain times.

    She is the author of the book “Leading for Learning”.  People do their best work when they are motivated. This may sound obvious, but while people managers instinctively agree with the centrality of motivation at work and its impact on employee engagement, their practices do not follow. With so much "real work" to do every day, how can managers also carve out time to learn, engage, build relationships, tap motivation, encourage development, and inspire?

    The problem is a false dichotomy between the world of business and that of people development. What if managers were able to systematically transform everyday business issues into meaningful, developmental coaching opportunities with employees at the same time?

    The book has a proven coaching approach to radically shift conversations away from either-or propositions and uses an entirely different lens: transforming business challenges by connecting them directly to employee motivation to achieve the desired business result while dramatically increasing employee engagement.  The book can be purchased here.

    The website for ONTOS Global can be found here - www.ontosglobal.com.

    Ron is the author of Tenacity which tells the gripping true story of how Ron Coury, a Las Vegas businessman, Marine and former Brooklynite survived corruption and cancer to achieve the American Dream.

As Coury climbed the ladder toward success, he faced a barrage of constraints including political and police corruption, bribery, coercion and even death threats.

His choices would have life altering consequences for many.  The book can be purchased here.

    Dr Garth Japhet - Author of "Like Water is for Fish: The Power of Story in our Lives"

    Dr Garth Japhet - Author of "Like Water is for Fish: The Power of Story in our Lives"

    Episode 129 of the Business Bookshelf - Dr Garth Japhet - Author of "Like Water is for Fish: The Power of Story in our Lives"

    Today our guest is Dr Garth Japhet

    As a young boy, Garth found his life radically shaped by the Jungle Doctor series of books. The stories so enthralled him that, against all advice, he set his heart on medicine. He could see his future – with a backdrop of savannas, golden sunsets, adventure and accolades – as a romantic figure, a healer, a hero.

    This fantasy sustained Garth through the challenges of medical training, but finally he arrived. He was Dr Japhet, living the dream. Except the dream was a nightmare. The reality of medicine was not the life he had hoped for. There were times when he cursed the power of the story that had so completely messed up his life. Having struggled with anxiety most of his life, he was catapulted into a deep depression.

    And then it happened. Garth stumbled upon the healing power of story – fictional, factual and his own. What magic was at work here? If stories had changed him, could he use story to change others? This question set him on the journey described in Like Water is for Fish; a journey that led to Garth co-founding Soul City and Heartlines, and to an understanding that story, in its multiple forms, is as essential for our lives as water is for fish.  The book can be purchased here.

    The website for Garth's company is called Heartlines and can be found here - www.heartlines.org.za.

Value add for professional development

Lance does a masterful job of picking books and authors that have something valuable to say. He also draws out the backstory for those principles to be better understood and acted upon.
