‘ZEST’ equates to zing, enthusiasm, energy, gusto, eagerness, zeal and fervour. It also connotes a tang, a sharpness.It’s the opposite of bland.And Zest: How to Squeeze the Max out of Life is exactly that.It’s more than just a book on personal development. There are an awful lot of those. Zest is a catalyst, a spark that ignites your remembering of what makes you, in a word, you. It drives you to rethink, rejuvenate and reinvent. It also contains a touch of the revolutions. Have you, as a grown-up, fallen into the trap of becoming a Groan-up? You know you should try to make the best of things, but oftentimes you don’t know what your “best” is anymore. It’s strange. You used to know. What happened? Was it the years of social conformity? There is a whole beige generation out there – a generation that has lost its identity and forgotten who they once were – buried under the crushing, stifling facades of adulthood. If only there was a way to unearth your passions, recover the zest for life you once had. Maybe there is.Zest is a wake-up call for you to explore the formative moments that define your life. It challenges you to believe that your best days are still ahead, to search your soul, to shake things up and bask in the warmth of glorious individuality. Zest will help you:Explore the pivotal, defining moments in your lifeExamine both the good and bad experiences that define youReconnect to the essence of who you areEmbrace your quirks, qualities and peculiaritiesDetermine to be the person you always wanted to beZest is your permission to play, your licence to wreak the right kind of havoc. Moreover, it’s not about pretending to be someone you’re not, it’s about squeezing every last drop out of who you already are.

Best selling author, award winning comedian and international keynote speaker Gavin Oattes challenges you to live life better than you have to, to never be afraid of your own style and to blow your own god damn mind for a change.Cast your mind back to that album that changed your life? The riffs, the hooks and the lyrics that blew your mind? That movie that moved your whole world and assured you that life was going to be special? Transporting you to a place you’d never been before, the opening chapter of that book that changed your life forever? The hairs on the back of your neck stood, adrenaline rushed through your entire body with the weight of the world gone from your young shoulders. Energised, inspired, alive, all in and ready to turn up to this wonderfully f*cked up thing we call life.Close your eyes and remember that feeling right there in that moment?Life Will See You Now is a rousing, uplifting anthem that will inspire you to put down your phone, rediscover what truly matters and completely rethink what ‘making it’ in life actually means. A personal development title with a difference – there’s no step-by-step guide and no map to change your life – instead, it provides you with hilarious, real life inspiration, motivation and energy to figure it out for yourself and rediscover that wee piece of magic you had when you were just five years old. Oattes makes the argument – backed by both positive psychology and an abundance of childlike wonder – that in an anxious world ruled by pressure, ego and other people’s expectations, we are all incredibly lucky to be alive at a time where kindness, gratitude, play and ice-lollies really do matter.Remember, you don't have to do what everyone else is doing. . .

More Details..

Take a moment to listen and you will hear the word ‘value’ at the core of many of the conversations around you – whether this applies to yourself, others, the community or in business. We should all be ‘adding value’, ‘being authentic’, ‘connecting with people’, however, often when you look up close, the opposite is often true. When we bias one set of values, we alienate others; and winning-at-all-costs will no longer cut it – as seen in the Banking Royal Commission, or Belle Gibson saga. Value is at the heart of all decision-making and personal choices and as such, determines our impact. Without a complete sense of our value, we are unprepared and unskilled to manage the challenges of today and tomorrow. This book provides readers with a framework to integrate their values across all their dimensions of their lives, to achieve unprecedented satisfaction, success, impact and legacy.

Slow down, own who you really are and unleash your inner brilliance.You already have everything you need to become truly brilliant — to lead a successful, fulfilling life — even though it doesn’t always feel like it. When everything external to us is moving so quickly, we feel out of control and exhausted; we worry about what we don’t have or what we need more of; we seek solutions to band-aid our perceived imperfections and doubts.

At a time when we suffer from unprecedented stress, comparison-itis and self-doubt, author Janine Garner asks us to slow down and turn our focus inward. She challenges you to take ownership of who you are and who you want to become, to rise above limitations, and unleash your brilliance within. Learn the 4 Laws of Brilliance and explore how to:• discover and own your spotlight• harness your natural energy• connect and collaborate with intent• enhance and magnify your influence.Be Brilliant helps you get out of your own way and unlock your true potential.

Develop a high-performing team based on a culture where respect trumps harmonyAs teams become more diverse, we won’t always see eye to eye. We won’t agree on everything, and we may not even like each other. In order to achieve results, we need to have robust, candid and constructive discussions. Respect Trumps Harmony offers a proven approach to navigating the difficulties faced in teams and workplaces today. To build collaboration; strengthen innovation; and manage safety, risk and well-being, it’s critical that there is a foundation of respect, not harmony.Developed during author Rachael Robertson’s time leading one of the toughest workplaces on the planet—Davis Station, Antarctica—and further informed by over 15 years of research, case studies and feedback, Robertson suggests that harmony in the workplace is overrated, and can even be dangerous, and that above all else, respect is the key ingredient of a high-performance culture. A focus on respect over harmony improves everything from morale to productivity. Respect Trumps Harmony integrates the three pillars at the core of Robertson’s leadership practice: No triangles, The bacon wars, and Lead without a title, enabling you to:• Manage conflict and put an end to gossip• Improve accountability and the quality of feedback, • Recognise and manage dysfunctional behaviour• Build collaboration to strengthen innovation• Identify and manage risk• Inspire trust and confidence by displaying personal leadership, and encourage others to do the same irrespective of their titleRespect Trumps Harmony is a contemporary leadership handbook, essential for all modern leaders and those who wish to transform the culture within their own team.
