              Brave, Not Perfect: How Celebrating Imperfection Helps You Live Your Best, Most Joyful Life (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER - Inspired by her popular TED Talk, the founder and CEO of Girls Who Code urges women to embrace imperfection and live a bolder, more authentic life. A timely message for women of all ages: Perfection isn't just impossible but, worse, insidious. --Angela ...Duckworth, bestselling author of Grit Imagine if you lived without the fear of not being good enough. If you didn't care how your life looked on Instagram. If you could let go of the guilt and stop beating yourself up for making human mistakes. Imagine if, in every decision you faced, you took the bolder path? As women, too many of us feel crushed under the weight of our own expectations. We run ourselves ragged trying to please everyone, pass up opportunities that scare us, and avoid rejection at all costs. There's a reason we act this way, Saujani says. As girls, we were taught to play it safe. Well-meaning parents and teachers praised us for being quiet and polite, urged us to be careful so we didn't get hurt, and steered us to activities at which we could shine. As a result, we grew up to be women who are afraid to fail. It's time to stop letting our fears drown out our dreams and narrow our world, along with our chance at happiness. By choosing bravery over perfection, we can find the power to claim our voice, to leave behind what makes us unhappy, and to go for the things we genuinely, passionately want. Perfection may set us on a path that feels safe, but bravery leads us to the one we're authentically meant to follow. In Brave, Not Perfect, Saujani shares powerful insights and practices to help us let go of our need for perfection and make bravery a lifelong habit. By being brave, not perfect, we can all become the authors of our best and most joyful life.

              The Underground Culinary Tour: How the New Metrics of Today's Top Restaurants Are Transforming How America Eats (Hardback)

              In the bestselling vein of Moneyball comes an entertaining, behind-the-scenes narrative about how the restaurant business is being transformed by the use of data, in an industry historically run by gut and intuition. From celebrity-run restaurants to today's cutting-edge culinary... trendsetters, author Damian Mogavero looks at how the use of data is revolutionizing how restaurants are run, from hiring chefs and training staff to pioneering new recipes, reengineering menus, and transforming the dining experience from the inside out, so that no restaurant is out of anything you want, ever. After earning his MBA from Harvard Business School, Damian Mogavero founded a pioneering software company to completely reorganize how the restaurant industry functions, from the food they order to the menus they create, from the chefs and waitstaff they hire to the wines they stock. The use of data has helped to re-create the dining experience, maximize customer satisfaction, grow revenues, and improve popularity and profits. Damian first forged a relationship with Jeffrey Frederick, a recently promoted executive in charge of food and beverage at one of the biggest properties on the Las Vegas strip, who was eager to prove himself in the high-stakes, cutthroat world of Las Vegas dining. Using data analytics, as well as weekly coaching sessions with Damian over the next 15 years, Frederick became one of the most successful restaurant executives in the industry. Damian shows how the use of data provides trendsetting new restaurants, luxury hotels and casinos, and even cruise ships, nightclubs, and beloved mom and pop restaurants with the information they need to transform the food we eat and create the dining experience we have come to expect.

              Imagine It Forward: Courage, Creativity, and the Power of Change

              Imagine It Forward: Courage, Creativity, and the Power of Change (Hardback)

              By Comstock, Beth; Raz, Tahl

              From one of today's foremost innovation leaders, an inspiring and practical guide to mastering change in the face of uncertainty. The world will never be slower than it is right now, says Beth Comstock, the former Vice Chair and head of marketing and innovation at GE. But confron...ting relentless change is hard. Companies get disrupted as challengers steal away customers; employees have to move ahead without knowing the answers. To thrive in today's world, every one of us has to make change part of our job. In Imagine It Forward, Comstock, in a candid and deeply personal narrative, shares lessons from a thirty year career as the change-maker in chief, navigating the space between the established and the unproven. As the woman who initiated GE's digital and clean-energy transformations, and its FastWorks methodology, she challenged a global organization to not wait for perfection but to spot trends, take smart risks and test new ideas more often. She shows how each one of us can--in fact, must -- become a change maker. Ideas are rarely the problem, writes Comstock. What holds all of us back, really--is fear. It's the attachment to the old, to 'What We Know.' Change is messy and fraught with tension, uncertainty and failure. Being change ready calls for the courage to defy convention, the resilience to overcome doubts, and the savvy to know when to go around corporate gatekeepers to reinvent what is possible. Among the practical takeaways Comstock offers: - The power of discovery--bringing the outside into your organization. It'is about turning the world into a classroom. - Find a spark--provocateurs who challenge established ways of thinking can be a powerful catalyst for change. - Give yourself permission--every change maker must learn to give herself permission to push outside expectations and boundaries. Confronting today's accelerating change requires an extraordinary degree of problem-solving, collaboration, and forward-thinking leadership to unlock every person's

              Why Startups Fail: A New Road Map for Entrepreneurial Success (Hardback)

              If you want your startup to succeed, you need to understand why startups fail. Why do startups fail? That question hit Harvard Business School professor Tom Eisenman with full force when he realized he couldn't explain it. And since more than two thirds of new ventures fail, that... left a lot of explaining to do. So he launched a multi-year research project to find out. In Why Startups Fail, Eisenmann unveils the results: six distinct patterns that account for the vast majority of startup failures. He offers frameworks for detecting when a venture is vulnerable to these patterns, along with a wealth of strategies and tactics for avoiding them. - Bad Bedfellows. Startup success is thought to rest largely on the founder's talents and instincts. But the wrong team, investors, or partners can sink a startup just as quickly. - False Starts. Despite the oft-cited advice to fail fast, and launch before you're ready, doing so risks wasting time and capital on the wrong solutions. - False Promises. Success with early adopters is often misleading and gives founders unwarranted confidence to expand. - Speed Traps. There's lots of pressure on startups to prioritize speed over efficiency and Get Big Fast. But hypergrowth can spell disaster for even the most promising ventures. - Help Wanted. Rapidly scaling startups need lots of capital and talent, but they can make mistakes that leave them suddenly in short supply. - Cascading Miracles. Silicon Valley exhorts entrepreneurs to dream big; as Peter Thiel put it, they promised us flying cars; what we got was 140 characters. But the bigger the vision, the more things can go wrong. Through fascinating stories of ventures that failed to fulfill their early promise--from home furnishings retailer Dot & Bo to the concierge dog walking service Baroo, to the makers of a sophisticated social robot named Jibo, to Better Place, which sought to build a massive network of charging stations for electric vehicles (and more)--Eisenmann shows reader
