The Virgin way : everything I know about leadership by Richard Branson( Book )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While building the Virgin Group over forty years, Richard Branson has never shied away from seemingly outlandish challenges that others (including his own colleagues on several occasions) considered sheer lunacy. He has taken on giants like British Airways and won, and monsters like Coca-Cola and lost. Now Branson gives an inside look at his strikingly different swashbuckling style of leadership. Learn how fun, family, passion, and the dying art of listening are key components to what his extended family of employees around the world have always dubbed (with a wink) the "Virgin Way." This unique perspective comes from a man who dropped out of school at sixteen, suffers from dyslexia, and has never worked for anyone but himself. He may be famous for thinking outside the box-an expression he despises-but Branson asserts that "you'll never have to think outside the box if you refuse to let anyone build one around you." This is a unique book on leadership from someone who readily admits he has never read a book on leadership in his life. So expect the unexpected"--

Reach for the skies : ballooning, birdmen, and blasting into space by Richard Branson( Book )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As far back as stories go, pioneers have reached for the skies. In the last two hundred years, they have mastered the air and made the modern world possible. Today they are bringing outer space within our reach. They're inventors and toymakers, amateurs and adventurers, visionaries, dreamers and, yes, crackpots. Some have called them irresponsible, even dangerous. But I have met many of them. I have worked with them, and funded them, and flown with them. I admire them, and trust them, and I think they and their kind are our future. In this book I look at the history of flight through the stories and people who have inspired me throughout my life. In these pages you will find tales of miraculous rescues; of records made and broken; of surprising feats of endurance and survival, including some of my own adventures, as well as developments in the future of air (and space) travel. It is a story of pioneers, and of course it includes the world famous Montgolfiers and the Wright brothers, but I also want to describe some of the lesser-known trailblazers. People like Tony Jannus, who in 1914 created the first scheduled commercial flight in the world, flying his passengers over the waters of Tampa Bay at an altitude of just fifty feet! The 'bird man' Leo Valentin, who in the 1950s jumped from 9,000 feet with wooden wings attached to his shoulders. And my friend Steve Fossett, who dedicated his life to breaking records and having adventures

Velocity : the seven new laws for a world gone digital by Ajaz Ahmed( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Velocity presents seven new laws for businesses in a 'world dominated by rapid change and digital technology' and is written in the form of a conversation between the authors. Stressing the inevitability of 'velocity' within the modern business environment, the authors champion the impact of speed, agility, service and optimism. The authors have recognised that in uncertain times actionable, accessible ideas and sage counsel are a potent combination. Their laws can be boiled down to the following: 1. Evolve immediately. Entitlement kills. 2. Get going. Things get better. 3. Make meaningful connections. 4. Never have anything to apologise for. 5. Make yourself proud by making people's lives easier, richer and more fun. 6. Have the balls to make the calls. 7. Do the right thing: play from your heart
