«Predictably Irrational»
Dan Ariely

About the book
Historically we used to consider ourselves to be the tops, and Economics nowadays treats consumer’s behavior like something exclusively logical, using postulate «Rationality in the first turn!» for the economic forecasting. The idea seems to be hardly denied.
But Dan Ariely, the Professor of the Duke University, has two news for you. Bad news: actually, we are irrational & there are numbers of arguments. The good one: we are predictably Irrational. We unwittingly acted according to the definite behavior models and, of course, we have a room for improvement.  Knowledge of concealed motives which animate ourselves, your colleagues, clients & partners will give you the strong advantage.

Leading Through Conflict
How Successful Leaders Transform Differences into Opportunities
Mark Gerzon

As our world grows smaller, opportunities for conflict multiply. Ethnic, religious, political, and personal differences drive people apart--with potentially disastrous consequences--and it's the task of perceptive leaders to bring them together again. World-renowned mediation expert Mark Gerzon argues that leaders have failed to rise to this challenge. Our organizations, schools, and governments remain filled with divisive dictators and everyday managers, instead of what he calls mediators--leaders who transform conflict so that everyone can move forward together. Through absorbing examples drawn from decades of work with organizational, political, and global conflicts of all kinds, Leading Through Conflict provides a powerful new framework for the leader as mediator and outlines eight specific tools these leaders use to transform seemingly intractable differences into progress on deep-seated problems. Both practical and passionate, this book makes the tools of cross-border leaders accessible to anyone who wants to help create healthier companies, communities, and countries.

Why Should Anyone Be Led by You?: What It Takes To Be An Authentic Leader by by Robert Goffee and Gareth Jones
Why Should Anyone Be Led by You?
Robert Goffee, Gareth Jones

At the start of the Millennium, our research, coupled with was driven by this single, simple question. It had an impact. Audiences throughout the world paused for thought. Rooms fell silent as people pondered their right to lead. An article in the Harvard Business Review with the question as its title drew a flood of communication and launched us on a five-year journey. 

Since then, we have talked to hundreds of leaders and their followers within the business world and beyond -- from CEOs of multinational corporations to teachers and nurses. What we learned is that to be a leader, you need vision, purpose and energy. But, to be a great leader you need to understand your differences -- your strengths and weaknesses - and, crucially, how to adapt these qualities to context. 

This is a book whose genesis was driven by a question, but it is one whose fruition, we believe, provides real answers to the leadership dilemmas we face.

This book constructs bridges between theory and practice, gives clear framework for realizing marketing strategies in modern business environment. Moreover all the argumentation springs from the most important element for every company – from its customers.
