Reinventing Management Thinking

Using science to liberate the human spirit

How to update your management skills


Thirty years of progress in the field of neuroscience and psychology are changing the way we need to think about leadership and organisational design. In Reinventing management thinking, the author draws on this this revolution in science to give you principles, concepts, tools and techniques that help to transform organisational destiny. 


Are you working against human nature?


Reinventing Management Thinking demonstrates how most leaders are still working against human nature. This working against the grain is manifested in the way we go about designing organisational activity, motivating people and improving productivity. As a direct result, the common experience of organizational life is high-stress and low performance.


Everywhere you look it seems that group outcomes are woefully below the full human potential latent in the workforce. 


Research based, but reader friendly


Although the author presents a wealth of research, above all this is an immensely practical book. Apart from the most recent research findings, Jeremy Old draws on his own twenty-five years experience as a turnaround specialist and management psychologist. As such he is able to cram the pages full of practical advice to help you redesign your organisation to work with the flow of human nature. 


Despite the ground-breaking nature of the ideas, any conscientious manager or owner-manager can make immediate good use of these guidelines and principles. This ease of use is simply because the remedies are ultimately based on the author’s own day-to-day experience. He has spent twenty-five years improving performance across dozens of organisations large and small and always using the principles laid out in this book.

“This is a terrific book. It is a great business studies manual, and a superb contribution to the application of psychology in business and leadership.”  Mike Grevis author of “Unlocking Reality”
