Imagine a company where people love coming to work and are highly productive on a daily basis. Imagine a company whose top executives, in a quest to create the most ´´fun´´ workplace ever, obliterate labor-management divisions and push decision-making responsibility down to the plant floor. Could such a company compete in today´s bottom-line corporate world? Could it even turn a profit? Well, imagine no more. In Joy at Work, Dennis W. Bakke tells the true story of this extraordinary company, and how, as its co-founder and longtime CEO, he challenged the business establishment with revolutionary ideas that could remake America´s organizations. It is the story of AES, whose business model and operating ethos, ´´let´s have fun´´, were conceived during a 90-minute car ride from Annapolis, Maryland, to Washington, D.C. In the next two decades, it became a worldwide energy giant with 40,000 employees in 31 countries and revenues of $8.6 billion. Joy at Work offers a model for the 21st-century company that treats its people with respect, gives them unprecedented responsibility, and holds them strictly accountable, because it´s the right thing to do, not just because it makes good business sense. More than any book you´ve ever read, Dennis Bakke´s Joy at Work will force you to question everything you thought you knew about corporate success. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dennis W. Bakke.

An ex-Wall Street trader improved on Moneyball’s famed sabermetrics to place bets that would beat the Vegas odds on Major League Baseball games - with a 41 percent return in his first year. Trading Bases explains how he did it. After the fall of Lehman Brothers, Joe Peta was out of a job. He found a new one but lost that, too, when an ambulance mowed him down. In search of a way to cheer himself up while he recuperated in a wheelchair, Peta started watching baseball again, as he had growing up. That’s when inspiration hit: Why not apply his outstanding risk-analysis skills to improve on sabermetrics, the method made famous by Moneyball - and beat the only market in town, the Vegas betting line? Why not treat MLB like the S&P 500? In Trading Bases, Peta shows how to subtract luck - in particular ´´cluster luck´´, as he puts it - from a team’s statistics to best predict how it will perform in the next game and over the whole season. His baseball ´´hedge fund´´ returned an astounding 41 percent in 2011 - and has never been down more than 5 percent. Peta takes listeners to the ballpark in San Francisco, trading floors and baseball bars in New York, and sports books in Vegas, all while tracing the progress of his wagers. Often humorous, occasionally touching, and with a wink toward the sheer implausibility of the whole project, Trading Bases is all about the love of critical reasoning, trading cultures, risk management, and baseball. And not necessarily in that order. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio. 1. Language: English.

One of the world’s leading authorities on customer-centric business transformation, Lior Arussy delivers results - so when Fortune 500 companies see potentially disruptive change on their horizon, Arussy is the person they call. Founder and CEO of the global consulting firm Strativity Group, he’s led more than 700,000 employees to embrace the drastic and continual change that is now their everyday reality - and thrive through it all. The old business model of adapting to change for continued success is dead. Change is the new normal. There are no more periods of stability and predictability. There is only change. This continuous upheaval can undercut morale, decrease productivity, and decimate profits, or it can be a game-changing opportunity. Arussy illuminates the path to opportunity. He helps corporate leaders and their employees view change as an opportunity to become invested, drive that change, and achieve more success and job satisfaction than if change were simply implemented from the top down. Based on his experience working one-on-one with major corporate clients like Mercedes-Benz, Royal Caribbean Cruises, Thomson Reuters, HSBC, and other Fortune 500 clients, Arussy shares his five-step Fit for Change program and guides change impacted employees and business owners from a victim mentality to one of participation and ownership. As Stephen Cannon, the former president and CEO of Mercedes-Benz USA, raves, ´´For anyone interested in building a thriving business, Lior Arussy´s insights provide actionable steps to integrate into your plans for achieving success”.
