Only our limited idea of money is keeping us poor. David Boyle introduces us to alternative cash and people who can conjure money – that is, spending power – out of nothing.
Until recently, the growth of alternative cash had been the province of big business: phone cards, stamps, air miles and Tesco’s clubcard points all have purchasing power, yet are not cash as we know it. Now, locally created money systems like ‘time dollars’, ‘Womanshare’ and ‘Ithaca hours’ are being invented by communities for communities.
With clarity and great humour, Boyle tells the story of this extraordinary revolution: he travels to the USA to visit the people behind local money systems; relates their vision of the future; and describes how to set up your own currency. This is no dry theoretical.

When he was struggling to get his first restaurant in the black, he didn\'t think he\'d be famous for a TV show about how to run profitable eateries, or that he\'d be head of a business empire. But he is and he did.
Here\'s how. In the beginning there was nothing.
Not a sausage – penniless, broke, fucking nothing – and although, at a certain age, that didn’t matter hugely, there came a time when hand-me-downs, cast-offs and football boots of odd sizes all pointed to a problem that seemed to have afflicted me, my mum, my sisters, Ronnie and the whole lot of us. It was as though we had been dealt the ‘all-time dysfunctional’ poker hand.
I wish I could say that, from this.

Silver Medal Winner, Business and Leadership, 2012 Nautilus Book Awards Respected former CEO, professor, and speaker examines what it takes to become a values-based leader In this highly-anticipated book, Harry Kraemer argues that today\'s business environment demands values-based leaders who, in «doing the right thing,» deliver outstanding and lasting results. The journey to becoming a values-based leader starts with self-reflection. He asks, «If you are not self-reflective, how can you know yourself? If you do not know yourself, how can you lead yourself? If you cannot lead yourself, how can you lead others?» Kraemer identifies self-reflection as the first of four principles that guide leaders to make choices that honor their values and candidly recounts how these principles helped.

No matter what your title or place on the organization chart, you have the potential to be a leader—or more precisely, the potential to exercise leadership in the moments that matter most. Leadership is not a job title or position, but rather an action.
In certain moments and situations, anyone can rise to the occasion to act as a leader—gaining respect, confidence, and ultimately greater success in the organization. But how can you recognize these moments where leadership is required, and then know what to do? Step Up explains six critical «leadership moments»—everyday instances when you have a choice to shine or let opportunity pass you by.
Based on their own research and extensive client work, Evans and Foster identify six regularly occurring moments and help you understand how.

These powerful essays are grouped into four categories: Significance, Relationships, Aspirations, and Courage. In each essay the authors consider a thorny and often ambiguous issue with which today’s leaders must grapple issues—such as how leaders serve and sacrifice, why leaders need loving critics, why leaders should want to be liked, why leaders can\'t take trust for granted, why it’s not just the leader’s vision, why failure is always.
