HASH(0x8f63ab58) étoiles sur 5 A Unique Approach 30 mars 2014
Par John Chancellor - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
When we set about to make changes in our lives or our business, we often try to isolate and focus on a narrow area that needs transformation or change. According to Faisal Hoque and Drake Baer, authors of Everything Connects, that is not necessarily the best approach. They advocate a holistic approach - because Everything Connects. Nothing happens in a vacuum. Everything we do is in some way connected to everything else.

The book is presented in three parts. Part One focuses on "When, Who and How we are". So the first thing we must achieve is a better understanding of ourselves and how we see the world. According to the authors, we don't really see the world as it is, we see our ideas about the world. We all strive to become experts in our respective fields. But as an expert, we can become rigid in our thinking. We need to develop a beginner's mind - to be able to see many different possibilities. If we take a holistic approach to business/life, we are focused on creating long term value.

There is a very profound idea presented in this section. "Entrepreneurship is taking ownership of one's economic well-being." The authors go on to say, "Although it's hubris to think that one has complete control over one's experience, it is martyrdom to think one has none."

Part One of the book goes into many very interesting, fresh and at times challenging ideas about our self-awareness, how we view the world. The authors offer some very insightful points for the reader to consider. Our self-awareness is the foundation for the rest of the book. If you don't get the "who" we are correct, there is no chance of getting the remaining correct.

Part Two deals with the structures and performing of innovation. Again, the authors makes a strong point that what is standing in the way of innovation is our mindsets - the way we think about things. Take the example of Blockbuster. According to the authors, Blockbuster could not innovate because they were focused on what they did, not on the value they created for the consumer. The authors point out companies that could not (or would not) innovate but they also point out several examples of companies that totally mastered the art of innovation.

Part Three starts with a wonderful quote. "There's an old Chinese saying that when you've made it 90 percent down the path, you're halfway to your destination." Part Three deals with recognizing how long it takes to accomplish anything worthwhile.

You cannot tell a plant to grow, you can only provide the conditions that allow growth. Likewise we cannot tell our direct reports to develop and grow, we can only provide the conditions that support growth and innovation.

This is a delightful read. It is full of wisdom and insights. And there are lots of practical, actionable concepts included in the book. At the end of each chapter is a summary to the most important takeaways.

The writing style is engaging. There was a lot of research conducted in the process of writing the book. There are substantial notes at the end of the book and a recommended reading list.

The book is very entertaining and enlightening. A real pleasure to read.

I was provided a review copy of this book.

HASH(0x8f63abac) étoiles sur 5 A wonderful and insightful read! 8 mars 2014
Par Peter K Kim - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I've always been a firm believer in "good values lead to value creation." Reading "Everything Connects" helped me ground my personal ideology with a strong theoretical and practical foundation and then some.

The writing style is easy-to-read and approachable. Both authors, Hoque and Baer, present the material with humor, thoughtfulness, and humility. I am a slow reader and started reading the book on my commute to work. I was surprised when I got off at my destination that I had read 60 pages in a single sitting. My compliments about the writing style are only eclipsed by my response to the content.

While it is established early on that target audience is entrepreneurs, the book redefines and recontextualized the term to mean "anyone who takes ownership of their economic well-being." And in that sense, the ideas and values expressed by the authors are applicable to any discipline, any industry, and any profession. One particularly memorable example is the discussion of Molly Crabapple, a painter-illustrator-entrepreneur-activist, who leveraged her network, current technology, and business acumen to be an artist making six-figures.

Another notable feature of the book is the sensitivity and humility of the authors towards race and culture. It reaffirms the core message that positive connections and humanism reinforce long-term gain and shape a better company. Both authors draw from a deep well of knowledge, from meditation practices to interviews with contemporary CEOs, to ancient proverbs. As the title suggests, "Everything Connects" investigates the contexts that currently exist to form meaningful bridges. On a personal note, it was refreshing to read about shifting capitalism away from efficiency to humanism.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoyed "Flow" and anyone who yearns to integrate of technology and humanism in both their personal and professional lives.

HASH(0x8f63ae88) étoiles sur 5 Think of your origins, lead & inspire, add value to society 18 février 2014
Par Henk-Jan van der Klis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Everything Connects connects a myriad of ideas on innovation, organization, leadership, creative destruction, motivation and sustainability. Faisal Hoque & Drake Baer throw in examples from history (e.g. Leonardo da Vinci), modern businesses (Yammer, Amazon, UPS), while mixing it with mindfulness, the book’s common denominator. Combined with a loose, somehow not that structured approach can keep you puzzled or distract at times. The avid reader of modern business and management books will come across the ideas of Daniel Pink (motivation), Adam Grant (give & take), Schumpeter (creative destruction) once again. The authors push to embed Buddhism’s mindfulness and other spiritual themes into your business practice to invoke more creativity in this connected world, and find some peace of mind in this fast paced society full of disengagement and dispersed work teams. The book’s core message can be summarized in: Think of your origins, lead & inspire, add value to society.

HASH(0x8f63b3b0) étoiles sur 5 How to generate ideas, grounded decisions, and long-burning value 21 février 2014
Par Jesse Lahey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
In the 21st century, the businesses and leaders that succeed are a difficult mix of creativity and flexibility on the one hand, and long-burning value on the other hand. In their new book, Faisal Hoque and co-author Drake Baer explain how these seeming opposites are actually connected … in fact, everything is connected. And they explain how to make it happen, for you as a leader, and for your team.

If you want a quick read, don't get EVERYTHING CONNECTS – instead, pick up one of Faisal Hoque's other books, which follow the more traditional format for the business market. If you are willing to take a journey that may truly change you and the people you lead, this book is for you. EVERYTHING CONNECTS reminds me of some philosophy and theology textbooks I read for college, except that it didn't put me to sleep – it is a deep read, but it is very practical, relevant, and exciting in the face of today's economy of disruptive innovation.

The more we understand the mental and emotional causes of innovation and creativity, the better we can lead ourselves and our team to make progress that matters. EVERYTHING CONNECTS will move you a long way down that road.

Par Ryan C. Holiday - Publié sur Amazon.com

There is not a better writer on workplace productivity and psychology out there than Drake Baer (the co-author of this book). I first met Drake when he was writing at Fast Company and have been following his stuff for several years since. His insights have directly translated into how I think about work, how I think about relationships and how I make decisions. I had the privilege of getting breakfast with Drake a few months ago--a supposedly short meeting that rolling into a two or three hour conversation. I was also lucky enough to have Drake briefly contribute to Betabeat.com (New York Observer) where I am an editor.

It's not surprise to me that Drake and Faisal have worked together to create an excellent and deep book about connection and innovation and creating lasting value. It combined Faisal's experience in business and as an author with Drake's cutting edge understanding of the latest research and science. In this book they lay out 1) how to find your bearings in a world disrupted by innovation 2) how to find the right mindset for success and creativity 3) how to optimize your work environment 4) how to embrace constant and continual change. And of course finally, they show how these four things connect. Because, as they say, Everything Connects.
