• Africa in Search of Prosperity

    Africa is a major player in global economic engineering. It is also a great development partner, a vital player in the economies of Asian nations who are eager to explore long awaited market possibilities that it presents by forging alliances with hi-growth emerging economies in Africa.

    This new economic order is shifting the developmental narratives as Africa’s rich potential market has become more attractive with a population of nearly one billion.

    The author of this book is a long time transnational business executive. Although he indicates a level of despair at times, he is quite hopeful of Africa’s prospects. His lived experience as an economist and policy advisor to Presidents, is reflected in these essays that address developmental issues from the colonial economy with those of the new states.

    In this, the author uses the experience of Ghana as an example and a site for an analytical perspective. He examines and writes about the issues of natural resource exploration, the oil economy, human skills and also looks at the vital factors of education, religion and the attendant attitudes to development.

    Collaborative Intelligence: Thinking with People Who Think Differently (Hardcover)

    A breakthrough book on the transformative power of collaborative thinking
     
    Collaborative intelligence, or CQ, is a measure of our ability to think with others on behalf of what matters to us all. It is emerging as a new professional currency at a time when the way we think, interact, and innovate is shifting. In the past, “market share” companies ruled by hierarchy and topdown leadership. Today, the new market leaders are “mind share” companies, where influence is more important than power, and success relies on collaboration and the ability to inspire.

    Collaborative Intelligence
    is the culmination of more than fifty years of original research that draws on Dawna Markova’s background in cognitive neuroscience and her most recent work, with Angie McArthur, as a “Professional Thinking Partner” to some of the world’s top CEOs and creative professionals. Markova and McArthur are experts at getting brilliant yet difficult people to think together. They have been brought in to troubleshoot for Fortune 500 leaders in crisis and managers struggling to inspire their teams.

    When asked about their biggest challenges at work, Markova and McArthur’s clients all cite a common problem: other people. This response reflects the way we have been taught to focus on the gulfs between us rather than valuing our intellectual diversity—that is, the ways in which each of us is uniquely gifted, how we process information and frame questions, what kind of things deplete us, and what engages and inspires us. Through a series of practices and strategies, the authors teach us how to recognize our own mind patterns and map the talents of our teams, with the goal of embarking together on an aligned course of action and influence.

    In Markova and McArthur’s experience, managers who appreciate intellectual diversity will lead their teams to innovation; employees who understand it will thrive because they are in touch with their strengths; and an entire team who understands it will come together to do their best work in a symphony of collaboration, their individual strengths working in harmony like an orchestra or a high-performing sports team.

  • Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts

    #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER  Brené Brown has taught us what it means to dare greatly, rise strong, and brave the wilderness. Now, based on new research conducted with leaders, change makers, and culture shifters, she’s showing us how to put those ideas into practice so we can step up and lead.

    NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY BLOOMBERG

    Leadership is not about titles, status, and wielding power. A leader is anyone who takes responsibility for recognizing the potential in people and ideas, and has the courage to develop that potential.

    When we dare to lead, we don’t pretend to have the right answers; we stay curious and ask the right questions. We don’t see power as finite and hoard it; we know that power becomes infinite when we share it with others. We don’t avoid difficult conversations and situations; we lean into vulnerability when it’s necessary to do good work.

    But daring leadership in a culture defined by scarcity, fear, and uncertainty requires skill-building around traits that are deeply and uniquely human. The irony is that we’re choosing not to invest in developing the hearts and minds of leaders at the exact same time as we’re scrambling to figure out what we have to offer that machines and AI can’t do better and faster. What can we do better? Empathy, connection, and courage, to start.

    Four-time #1 New York Times bestselling author Brené Brown has spent the past two decades studying the emotions and experiences that give meaning to our lives, and the past seven years working with transformative leaders and teams spanning the globe. She found that leaders in organizations ranging from small entrepreneurial startups and family-owned businesses to nonprofits, civic organizations, and Fortune 50 companies all ask the same question:

    How do you cultivate braver, more daring leaders, and how do you embed the value of courage in your culture? 

    In this new book, Brown uses research, stories, and examples to answer these questions in the no-BS style that millions of readers have come to expect and love.

    Brown writes, “One of the most important findings of my career is that daring leadership is a collection of four skill sets that are 100 percent teachable, observable, and measurable. It’s learning and unlearning that requires brave work, tough conversations, and showing up with your whole heart. Easy? No. Because choosing courage over comfort is not always our default. Worth it? Always. We want to be brave with our lives and our work. It’s why we’re here.”

    Whether you’ve read Daring Greatly and Rising Strong or you’re new to Brené Brown’s work, this book is for anyone who wants to step up and into brave leadership.

  • How to Own the Room: Women and the Art of Brilliant Speaking (Hardcover)

    ‘Inspirational.’ — Mary Portas

    ‘Indispensable … written with style and wit.’ — Mishal Husain

    Most books about public speaking don’t tell you what to do when you open your mouth and nothing comes out. And they don’t tell you how to get over the anxiety about performance that most people naturally have. They don’t tell you what to do in the moments when you are made, as a woman, to feel small. They don’t tell you how to own the room. This book does.

    From the way Michelle Obama projects ‘happy high status’, and the power of J.K.Rowling’s understated speaking style, to Virginia Woolf’s leisurely pacing and Oprah Winfrey’s mastery of inner conviction, what is it that our heroines do to make us sit up and listen – really listen – to their every word? And how can you achieve that impact in your own life? Here’s how.

  • Is There Not A Cause…To Rant?

    If talking about Ghana is a dice, Ace comes up tops.

    Few lawyers engage the socio-political issues of their day as Ace Ankomah does. Ever since he gifted his voice and pen to the public cause, Ace has dissected, analysed and proffered solutions to national issues with a patriotic joie de vivre. Indeed, it is said that he invests as much effort on his clients’ cases as he does on the national front. Or does he?

    Ace has participated in street demonstrations, has written, has debated, has sung, and has coined phrases which have gained currency in the national conversation. In this no-holds-barred journey through beautifully written essays, one encounters a writer burdened with the frustrations of a boxer whose hands have been held from behind, the frustration of not being able to punch crass illogicality. And so he rants. From constitutional lacunas to the paradox of cocoa, from building permits to the dilemma of akpeteshie, from ethnicity to the degraded texture of Milo…

    Is There Not A Cause…to Rant? is what happens when a stammering, public-spirited private legal practitioner clears his chest about the Ghana he so dearly loves.

  • Mind Your Language

    The aim of this book is to make the reader sensitive to good English. The author has not set out to criticize unduly journalists, reporters, radio and TV presenters, newsreaders, academics, teachers, top civil and public servants, business executives, politicians, writers, book publishers and editors, students and all who use Ghanaian English. The criticism is a reminder of the difficulty of writing and speaking good English.

    The book deals with the deviant forms and usage in educated Ghanaian English, and other common errors in English. It explains the criteria to be used in distinguishing between acceptable and unacceptable forms and usage in second language English.

    The bulk of the material used for the criticism was collected from educated Ghanaian English – written and spoken. The sources included newspapers (and editorials), magazines, books, reports, television and radio news, discussions and phone-ins and conversations.
