            #MeToo in the Corporate World: Power, Privilege, and the Path Forward

            Economist and award-winning author Sylvia Ann Hewlett blends vivid stories with powerful new data in assessing the impact of the #MeToo movement in corporate America and provides concrete action to help executives and companies create more inclusive and safe work environments for... women, people of color, and LGBTQ employees. While the #MeToo movement has exposed the enormous harm done by sexual misconduct in the workplace, the movement's full promise has not been fulfilled, Sylvia Ann Hewlett argues. Showcasing new data on the incidence of sexual harassment and assault at work, she reveals how the movement has focused almost exclusively on white women and failed to support other vulnerable groups who are also targets of abuse. Black men, gay men and women, and Latinas experience particularly high rates of sexual harassment and assault. In addition to exploring the movement's limitations, Hewlett examines the collateral damage inflicted by #MeToo. She looks at hits to the bottom line (lawsuits and settlements, tarnished brands, and stock devaluations) and hits to the talent pipeline. In particular she shows how male leaders, fearful of gossip and legal action, are increasingly skittish about sponsoring young women, no matter how high performing they are. This makes it much more likely that women will stall out mid-career and will deprive companies of diversity in the C-Suite and gender smarts around decision-making tables. Digging deep into examples that range from Fox News, Nike, and Google to CBS, Michigan State University, and the Catholic Church, Hewlett lays bare the financial losses associated with sexual misconduct scandals. No wonder corporate chief risk officers newly have #MeToo in their line of sight! A third of this book is devoted to solutions and Hewlett offers a three-pronged strategy, combining legal remedies with individual and corporate action steps that can be used to protect employees and businesses they work for.

            An award-winning Financial Times columnist exposes the threat that Big Tech poses to our democracies, our economies and ourselves Today Google and Facebook receive 90% of the world's news ad-spending. Amazon takes half of all ecommerce in the US. Google and Apple operating system...s run on all but 1% of cell phones globally. And 80% of corporate wealth is now held by 10% of companies - not the GEs and Toyotas of this world, but the digital titans. How did we get here? How did the tech industry get to dominate our world so completely? How did once-idealistic and innovative companies come to manipulate elections, violate our privacy, and pose a threat to the fabric of our democracy? In Don't Be Evil, Financial Times global business columnist Rana Foroohar documents how Big Tech lost its soul - and became the new Wall Street. Through her skilled reporting and unparalleled access - won through nearly 30 years covering business and technology - she shows the true extent to which the 'Faang's (Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Google) crush or absorb any potential competitors, hijack our personal data and mental space and offshore their exorbitant profits. What's more, she reveals how these threats to our democracies, our livelihoods and our minds are all intertwined. Yet Foroohar also lays out a plan for how we can resist, creating a framework that fosters innovation while also protecting us from the dark side of digital technology.

            The Code of the Extraordinary Team is a call to action for business leaders or anyone who aspires to be one. Corporate pioneer Vishen Lakhiani reveals the revolutionary culture-hacking formula he used to grow Mindvalley, his burgeoning personal development business that went from... $700 into a $50 Million business with zero funding. It's a clearly defined, five-step process that can transform your company into a magnet for the world's top talent, create a growth-centric culture, and engineer an environment of symbiotic co-creation, where the balance of autonomy, collaboration, and connection breeds happy, productive teams. You'll learn- How to attract the right people- Focus not on hiring into specific roles, but hiring people who fit the culture you're trying to build. How to create a motivated, inspired work culture- Vishen shares the four emotions that are dominant across all people looking for jobs so you can hire the right people. How to create a culture where employees live better lives outside of work- Vishen shares his theory that we should work for the minimum effective dose --working harder, not longer, taking advantage of short spikes of energy to get a lot done. How to coax the leadership instinct in your people- You should want your employees to be so good that they eventually leave you! How to prepare for the future of work- What will the workplace look like when AI and robots replace employees and universal income is implemented? This is a guide to transforming your beliefs and habits to realize happiness, achieve success, and fulfill your purpose, using the exact strategies Lakhiani used to fuel Mindvalley's explosive growth.
