Books Description:

New York Times bestselling author Dan Lyons exposes how the "new oligarchs" of Silicon Valley have turned technology into a tool for oppressing workers in this "passionate" (Kirkus) and "darkly funny" (Publishers Weekly) examination of workplace culture. A Guardian Best Book of 2019An Inc. Magazine Best Business Book of 2018 At a time of soaring corporate profits and plenty of HR lip service about "wellness," millions of workers--in virtually every industry--are deeply unhappy. Why did work become so miserable? Who is responsible? And does any company have a model for doing it right? For two years, Lyons ventured in search of answers. From the innovation-crazed headquarters of the Ford Motor Company in Detroit, to a cult-like "Holocracy" workshop in San Francisco, and to corporate trainers who specialize in ... Legos, Lyons immersed himself in the often half-baked and frequently lucrative world of what passes for management science today. He shows how new tools, workplace practices, and business models championed by tech's empathy-impaired power brokers have shattered the social contract that once existed between companies and their employees. These dystopian beliefs--often masked by pithy slogans like "We're a Team, Not a Family"--have dire consequences: millions of workers who are subject to constant change, dehumanizing technologies--even health risks. A few companies, however, get it right. With Lab Rats, Lyons makes a passionate plea for business leaders to understand this dangerous transformation, showing how profit and happy employees can indeed coexist.

Books Description:

Get your message across the right way with clear communication Message Not Received provides the tools and techniques that make an effective writer and public speaker. Particularly on topics related to data and technology, effective communication can present a challenge in business settings. This book shows readers how those challenges can be overcome, and how to keep the message from getting lost in the face of mismatched levels of knowledge, various delivery media, and the library of jargon that too often serves as a substitute for real, meaningful language. Coverage includes idea crystallization, the rapidly changing business environment, Kurzweil's law of accelerating change, and our increasing inability to understand what we are saying to each other. Rich with visuals including diagrams, slides, graphs, charts, and infographics, this guide provides accessible information and actionable guidance toward more effectively conveying the message. Today, few professionals can ignore the tsunami of technology that permeates their lives, advancing far more rapidly that most of us can handle. As a result, too many people think that successful speaking means using buzzwords, jargon, and invented words that sound professional, but don't actually communicate meaning. This book provides a path through the noise, helping readers get their message across succinctly, efficiently, and effectively. Adapt your approach for more effective communication Learn the critical skill of crystallizing ideas Tailor your style to the method of delivery Ensure that your message is heard, understood, and internalized It doesn't matter whether you're pitching to a venture capitalist, explaining daily challenges to a non-tech manager, or speaking to hundreds of people – jargon-filled word salad uses a lot of words to say very little. Better communication requires a different approach, and Message Not Received gives you a roadmap to more effective speaking and writing for any audience or medium.

Books Description:

The Best Way to Fix Our Economy describes the basic problem of the USA economy in the early-21st century. It is how to restore, re-surge and re-build America. How? The solution is building great new innovative product industries that produce excellent products at good prices that sell in the USA and markets around the globe. They generate sustainable small businesses. That then produces steady jobs that provide income that keeps taxes down and enables sizable profit, incent investment, ROI, continuous R&D and superior products built at competitive prices and helps ensure sustainable industry growth. The book affords an accurate historical analysis of how America has driven its economy from being the primary product-producer in the world to a service-based economy. The authors describe the simple--not easy--roadmap back to the future to being a product-driven world force by using the Lazars' proven behavioral economic model that they call The Central Productive Processa [ to create a renewed productive society. The Lazars name 17 innovative product industries that will turn the economy around and restore the practice of true Capitalism in America instead of the personal interest (greed) and financial services system now in place masking as Capitalism. The Central Productive Processa [ is punctuated with realistic, logical and common sense notions crisply formulated over thirty-five years of "on-the-ground" experience. It is not a theoretical exercise for the reader. It works. Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Dwight David Eisenhower are cited as two excellent examples of "AND THINKING" leaders who understood that a strong nation combines defense and human needs along with economic growth and human well-being. Their vision of a compassionate and strong American economy has been in decline in America for the last 30 years. While the clarion calls of Roosevelt and Eisenhower have been muffled in the USA, China heeded the call, exceeded all expectations and has grown into an economic power with product-driven national policies. Enhanced by thirty years of peace and neutrality, they have also improved the quality of life and expectations of its citizens. In this book the Lazars light the way to breathing new life into a new economy that is product-based, profitable, productive and progressive. This work is a renewed clarion call for warring ideological leaders and elected officials to work together to overcome their own weak performance and unwillingness to sacrifice their personal interests for the best interests of all Americans. The nation cries out for them to cease battling each other to the death. The country needs a "new response" to the lagging and weak economy. This book provides the right response for a new economy inherent in the American character. It is time for each and all of us to help our nation rediscover its greatness and ability to resolve internal conflicts with victorious actions. "Hope and optimism can only be founded on right thought and right action that people can see and feel."--Richard G. Lazar, PhD
