“A visionary roadmap for people who believe they can change the world—and invaluable advice about bringing together the partners and technologies to help them do it.” —President Bill Clinton A radical, how-to guide for using exponential technologies, moonshot thinking, and crowd-powered tools, Bold unfolds in three parts. Part One focuses on the exponential technologies that are disrupting today’s Fortune 500 companies and enabling upstart entrepreneurs to go from “I’ve got an idea” to “I run a billion-dollar company” far faster than ever before. The authors provide exceptional insight into the power of 3D printing, artificial intelligence, robotics, networks and sensors, and synthetic biology. Part Two draws on insights from billionaires such as Larry Page, Elon Musk, Richard Branson, and Jeff Bezos and reveals their entrepreneurial secrets. Finally, Bold closes with a look at the best practices that allow anyone to leverage today’s hyper-connected crowd like never before. Here, the authors teach how to design and use incentive competitions, launch million-dollar crowdfunding campaigns to tap into tens of billions of dollars of capital, and finally how to build communities—armies of exponentially enabled individuals willing and able to help today’s entrepreneurs make their boldest dreams come true.

Frost & Sullivan's 2014 Growth, Innovation, and Leadership Book of the Year "EXPONENTIAL ORGANIZATIONS should be required reading for anyone interested in the ways exponential technologies are reinventing best practices in business." —Ray Kurzweil, Director of Engineering at Google In business, performance is key. In performance, how you organize can be the key to growth. In the past five years, the business world has seen the birth of a new breed of company—the Exponential Organization—that has revolutionized how a company can accelerate its growth by using technology. An ExO can eliminate the incremental, linear way traditional companies get bigger, leveraging assets like community, big data, algorithms, and new technology into achieving performance benchmarks ten times better than its peers. Three luminaries of the business world—Salim Ismail, Yuri van Geest, and Mike Malone—have researched this phenomenon and documented ten characteristics of Exponential Organizations. Here, in EXPONENTIAL ORGANIZATIONS, they walk the reader through how any company, from a startup to a multi-national, can become an ExO, streamline its performance, and grow to the next level. "EXPONENTIAL ORGANIZATIONS is the most pivotal book in its class. Salim examines the future of organizations and offers readers his insights on the concept of Exponential Organizations, because he himself embodies the strategy, structure, culture, processes, and systems of this new breed of company." —John Hagel, The Center for the Edge Chosen by Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel, to be one of Bloomberg's Best Books of 2015
How to Get More Motivated, Set Bigger Goals, and Achieve More by Thinking Bigger Have you ever wondered what separates people who think bigger from people who set their bar low? What makes one person accept low standards and another person to constantly raise them? Why does one person strive to build an international organization affecting the lives of millions of people, while another person is content working her entire life as a clerk? (Not that there’s anything wrong with being a clerk!) Why is one person challenging herself to run marathons, train her body and get fitter, while another is happy living a sedentary, unhealthy lifestyle? What drives a person who’s optimizing every single aspect of her life and what causes another person to maintain the status quo? You can say, “Well, the answer is simple enough – one person is ambitious, while the other one is not.” But what exactly causes it? And most importantly – how do you become more ambitious and think bigger? Is it something you’re born with and can’t change, or is it something over which you have control? I found this topic so fascinating I decided to find out the answer for myself and write a book about it. This book is the result of my research about people who think big and the science of being more ambitious. Here are just some of the things you will learn from the book: - What key things you need to inspire yourself to think bigger, and more importantly, achieve your big goals. - Why you need a “why,” and what kind of motivators will set you up for success (hint: attaining money or status are some of the least motivating goals possible). - The single most important thing to thinking bigger. If you don’t have it in your life, you will sabotage your efforts – guaranteed. - What the chimp is and why you need to learn how to control it to get yourself motivated and work on your big goals. You can be making things hard for yourself without being aware of it. - How to cultivate the art of strategic laziness to achieve more while doing much less than other people (why work so hard if you can get better results by being lazy?). - The seven most important triggers of flow – a state of perfect focus where the magic happens. - The secret of achieving the impossible is not really such a secret, but most people tend to forget about it and get overwhelmed by their goals. I wrote this book to increase my motivation, teach myself how to think bigger and learn how to raise my standards. I hope the answer I found will help you as much as it has helped me. You can also learn how to find motivation to become the best version of you. Scroll up and buy the book now.

In The Angle Quickest for Flight, a quintet of eccentric metaphysicians searches for a sacred book looted during the Spanish Inquisition and tithed to the Vatican. Steven Kotler’s first novel, which received acclaim from masters such as John Barth, moves with dizzying power across continents and epochs, weaving a multilayered narrative around secret societies, mad magicians, and a runaway boy named Angel.
Purpose & Impact is the first book aiming to provide guidance to senior executives and professionals for how to rethink and even relaunch careers that align with wider purpose and societal impact. With our increasing longevity, the concept of retirement is becoming redundant, as executives need, financially, and want, motivationally, to continue to work well beyond what is currently considered ‘retirement age’. Around age 50, when we often leave our mainstream employers, we could be looking forward to around 30 healthy years, equivalent to a whole second career. This book, therefore, sets out a topic that is becoming increasingly important and urgent for governments, companies and executives alike. This book is underpinned by research (including interviews with over 90 senior executives) conducted by the author. Many of their stories are interspersed throughout the book to provide the reader with real insight into how very diverse senior executives and professionals created roles that enabled their own personal growth and development and had positive impacts on wider society. In addition, helpful tools and guides are used throughout the book to help the reader in their decision-making processes through the different stages of discovering and developing themselves and their career goals.

This book is for anyone who has worked very hard at something--in business, life, sport, music, hobbies--and stopped seeing progress. In these pages, John K. Coyle explores the intersection of two popular frameworks¿Design Thinking and Strengths-finding¿and shows how they can be combined to achieve breakthrough performance. Coyle demonstrates how to leverage the mindset and process of Design Thinking to define the ¿right¿ problem, and to ask and answer a ¿better question.¿ Instead of ¿how do I fix my weaknesses,¿ he re-defines the central challenge of ¿how can I design for my strengths?¿ To illuminate these concepts, Coyle weaves a fascinating thread from ¿Imaginariums" as a student under Stanford's David Kelley, to world-class racing as a cyclist and speedskater, to applying Design Thinking to emerging business problems. With contributions from more than a dozen leading experts, including Steven Kotler, David Kelley, David Eagleman, Daniel Coyle and Chip Conley, as well as Olympic gold medalists, Apolo Ohno and Meryl Davis, this book will engage, entertain and inform.At its core, this book is about sharing the tools and mindsets required to find and reveal hidden potential, and imparting the belief that each and every one of us contains the capacity to do something extraordinary - if we design for it.
