Finding The Flowers Amongst The Weeds
Leaders must focus on the few things that will really make a difference to their organization. Lynda Gratton encourages leaders to make sure their priorities are landmark priorities that are tightly aligned to their objectives and then find ways to filter these ideas down, as they are hugely important to the future of the company
Beyond Business As Usual
Large, powerful organizations have a responsibility to play an important role in society. Lynda Gratton explains how leaders should take responsibility for this and be a force for good by engaging employees in how to be collectively greater than just being defined by the financial returns of "business as usual."
Cooperation vs. Competition
In a competitive industry it can be difficult to be cooperative. But organizations based on trust are better places to work than those with a competitive atmosphere as cooperation can be extremely powerful, and lasting value can be created when people work together.
The Power Of Good Conversation
Executives who are prepared to have meaningful, purposeful conversations become powerful role models to people around them about what’s valued in the workplace.

Glow: How You Can Radiate Energy, Innovation, and Success
Bestselling author Lynda Grattonone of the top twenty management thinkers in the world, according to the Financial Times follows up her bestseller Hot Spots (over 16,000 sold) by taking a deep look at people who Glow. These are individuals in organizations who radiate energy and attract others to them, who can create, find, and flourish in hot spots of innovation.
Drawing on years of original research, Gratton identifies three principles that people who glow live by. For each principle, she outlines three actions anyone can put it into practice, illustrated with dozens of examples and personal stories. If you can learn to glow, you will add tremendous value to your organization, and do so in a way that will make your work more satisfying and fulfilling.
Hot Spots: Why Some Teams, Workplaces, and Organizations Buzz with Energy - and Others Don′t
Sometimes within an organization, condensed periods of growth and innovation occur. For a short period of time, new ideas flow freely and cooperation and success attain levels that exceed all expectations. These periods are called " hot spots." This book takes a detailed look at how and why hot spots happen, and shows that it′s possible to create them.
In order to do so, entrenched rules about command and control must be discarded, since hot spots can′t be commanded, nor can they be controlled. Instead, they are a naturally emerging phenomena. But, that doesn′t mean that organizations have to wait for them to arise.
Gratton offers techniques and strategies that can create a more productive environment, one in which hot spots are anticipated, recognized, and embraced — an environment that carries the organization beyond its pre-set goals and boundaries and to new levels of growth and energy.
