THE MOMENTUM EFFECT

THE MOMENTUM EFFECT
How to Ignite Exceptional Growth
by J. C. Larreche
Wharton School Publishing
289 pages first published in 2008
ISBN-13: 978-0-273-71253-4 9780273712534
.......................................................................................................

Jean-Claude Larreché has thoroughly studied the engines of growth that enable firms to create superior value over time. He thinks that a combination of marketing excellence, customer focus and innovation create a momentum effect that self-fuels these engines. However, the momentum is dynamic and the magic lies in being able to nurture its drivers. In this book, the author presents the concept and the strategy to reach it. He then moves forward to examine the eight steps of the process and finally focuses his attention on the leadership competences required to successfully implement and maintain it.

SEX, MONEY, HAPPINESS, AND DEATH:
The quest for authenticity
by Manfred Kets de Vries
Palgrave Macmillan
264 pages first published in 2009
ISBN-13: 978-0230577923
......................................................................................................
In this book, Manfred Kets de Vries, one of the leading management thinker and practicioner on leadership, attempted to do something very different from his many other books. This time, the author brings key learning points on «living». How can we deal with four of our life’s major challenges: first, the sexual desire, which can often makes us do things we would never otherwise have done; second, the need for money, which can sometimes affect the lives of people that have too much in a much more dramatically way than the life of those who have too little; third, the quest for happiness, with the recurrent question on «how to be happy?»; and, last but not least, our relationship with death, not only our own but also, and probably much more impacting, the loss of a close person. The afterword section of the book deals with the search of meaning in life and other related themes like wisdom, altruism and authenticity.
