      Friends, make the most of your time together.

      A thousand Instagram likes don't equal the wellness boost of one friendly hug. In our fast-paced world of glamourized busyness, social media fixation and convenience without human contact, there's nothing like putting down our devices and turning to those few special people who fill our cups, light us up, and embolden us to be our best selves - that is, our closest women friends.

      Why not make the most of the precious time you have together and plan dates that will heal your body, nourish your spirit, and fuel your desire for personal growth?

      Acts of Friendship presents 47 activities for you and your friends to connect with each other and help one another change your lives in ways you never expected. Sometimes you need a friend to tell you that you're exceptional or to applaud you when you explore a hidden talent; sometimes only a friend can remind you to slow down or nudge you to expand your concept of who you are. From Take Your Cue (where you connect the dots to a better life) to A Friendly Q&A (where you learn everything you've ever wanted to know about your pals and yourself) to Let's Go Retro (where you time travel with your friends) and more, these meaningful, fun activities are meant to energize, inspire, and rejuvenate you so that, together, you grow.

      Quality relationships help us live stronger and longer, and the science backs this up. Authors and friends, Lynne Everatt, Deb Mangolt, and Julie Smethurst, looked to the research on what makes a happy, fulfilling life and designed the 47 Acts of Friendship accordingly. From giving to forgiving, being mindful to being active, finding joy to losing grudges, playing to journaling, gratitude to meditation, loving yourself to loving your friends, learning new things to learning new perspectives and new ways of life, these tested and true activities will generate laughter, inspiration, and expanded horizons. Try them out with your friends and experience the benefits of one of the world's greatest healers: connection.
      Lynne Everatt is a recovering MBA, LinkedIn Top Voice in management and culture and ardent advocate for wellness through physical fitness. As part of her rehabilitation, she wrote The 5-Minute Recharge: 31 Proven Strategies to Refresh, Reset and Become the Boss of Your Day, aimed at improving workplace mental health, and Emails from the Edge, which was nominated for the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour. Prior to pursuing her dream of becoming a writer, she worked with numbers at a multinational pharmaceutical company where she met co-authors Deb Mangolt and Julie Smethurst, who share her love of physical activity, earthy food, and self-improvement through friendship.

      Deb Mangolt's positive attitude and bubbly personality is ideally suited to helping others get the most out of life. Once a Fortune 500 finance director, she reinvented herself to better express her strengths. An event planner, life coach, dance fitness instructor, and a cherished friend to many, Deb inspires others to become the best versions of who they are. Being an avid golfer, Deb is grateful for having "the best of both worlds," living in Florida in the winter and on Muskoka Bay, Ontario, in the summer, with her husband, Randy.

      Julie Smethurst discovered her life as a successful CPA was out of balance. Fulfilling her desires for time with family, personal growth, and work achievements seemed elusive until she looked to her friends Lynne and Deb. Their inspiration and support coupled with Julie's deep yearning to live a life she loves was the winning formula for her best life. She has adapted her ways of working, created dedicated family time, and pursued her desire to learn to fly. Julie plays tennis and golf and has indulged her love of French by taking courses. She has a passion for healthy food and enjoys taking long walks and bike rides with her husband.

      Together, Lynne, Deb, and Julie are on a mission to encourage women to discover new ways to raise each other up through friendship, just as they have discovered the best in themselves through each other.

      Hi there, it's Michael, the author. You might know my previous book, The Coaching Habit. It was an unexpected bestseller: more than 700,000 copies sold so far, 1,000+ 5-star reviews on Amazon (my favourite: "I have plodded through many books that wish they could be this book"), a Wall Street Journal bestseller, and used by people and organizations around the world.

      So I've been sweating on the follow-up. The pressure! The anticipation! But here it is, and I think you're going to like it. If The Coaching Habit says, "here are the seven essential questions to be more coach-like," The Advice Trap is about getting to grips with how to actually change your behaviour so you stay curious a little bit longer.

      It sounds like it should be easy, but it's not. You have to tame your Advice Monster, that part of you that jumps in to offer up ideas, opinions, suggestions and advice. And it's taming your Advice Monster that's at the heart of this book. But there are also some specific coaching strategies, particularly on how to focus on what matters most. There are tools to make your conversations, coaching and otherwise, irresistible. There are even resources beyond the book itself, including a one-year, free leadership program from a 52-person faculty of cool, diverse, and provocative thinkers.

      In 2019, I was named the #1 Thought Leader in Coaching, and was short-listed for the coaching award by Thinkers50, the "Oscars of Management." My work's been featured in journals such as HBR, Fast Company, Forbes, and Inc., and my company, Box of Crayons, has trained more than 100,000 people just like you in the tools and mindset required for this essential leadership behaviour: being more coach-like. You'll get all of that wisdom and experience when you read The Advice Trap. I'm pretty sure you'll find it a great investment of your money and time. (And, by the way, thank you in advance for buying it. I'm thrilled to know the book is going out into the world.)
      Michael Bungay Stanier is a leading coaching expert, renowned keynote speaker, and bestselling author of The Coaching Habit, which has sold more than 500,000 print copies since its 2016 release, and Do More Great Work (100,000 copies sold). His follow-up to The Coaching Habit,The Advice Trap, will be released in February 2020. Michael is the founder of Box of Crayons, a company that strengthens leadership and culture within organizations by giving busy managers and leaders the tools to coach in a way that works. Under Michael's guiding influence, Box of Crayons designs and delivers programs that reframe how people think about coaching as a strategic skill. He works with clients from all sectors, including Microsoft, Volvo, the United Nations, Sotheby's, and PwC. A Rhodes Scholar and an influential thinker in the coaching space, Michael was selected by Marshall Goldsmith as the #1 Thought Leader in Coaching in the world. He lives in Toronto.

      Can a creative mind thrive in a corporate landscape? Can a business leader use creativity to guide teams more effectively?
      From one of today's leading creative minds comes a book for modern rebels on building a rewarding life without losing your edge. Written for uncompromising creative thinkers and aspiring changemakers, The Art of Creative Rebellion encapsulates insights and wisdom collected over a life of creative and professional prosperity. In these frank and insightful reflections, John S. Couch shares with young free thinkers the uncompromising principles needed to thrive in a world that seems to reward conformity. Above all, The Art of Creative Rebellion is a guide to shaping a life, career and reality that nourishes the spirit and feeds the soul - without compromises or apologies.
      Widely recognized as one of the great creative minds of our modern world, John S. Couch is a prolific artist and designer working as an Entertainment and Technology Specialist focused on cross-platform content strategies. He is currently Vice President, Product Design for on-demand video service Hulu, where he lead its successful 2017 Hulu Experience redesign across mobile, living room and web platforms.

      His first job out of college was curating an art show in London of Beat writer William Burroughs' "Shotgun Paintings" (as implied, shotguns and exploding cans of spray paint were involved). In classic young starving artist mode, he ambulated to Paris, Vienna and Tokyo before finally settling in San Francisco. He launched his design career at Wired Magazine, where he shared an office with Douglas Coupland ("Generation X") and developed a love for technology, design and tech. Fluent in Japanese, he helped launch Wired Japan before moving to LA, where he took on leadership roles at The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), CBS and eBay, finally landing at Hulu.

      Couch lives with his wife and daughter in the Santa Monica Mountains, California, where, in addition to his day job, he writes every morning before sunrise and paints every evening.

      What if your legacy isn't what you leave behind, but something you create, every day of your life?

      What if you started acting the way you want to be remembered - right now - and shared your unique gifts with the world? In Everyday Legacy, Codi Shewan inspires readers to redefine how they live and embrace the idea of living - not leaving - a legacy. His message is simple, yet powerful: In each moment, you have the ability to change yourself and those around you, in profound ways.

      This book is for anyone who wants to rethink their own legacy and start living it now. Everyday Legacy shares vital lessons for living, informed by Shewan's experiences as a funeral director who developed a deep understanding of the reality of death. From tales of unexpected friendship as a young volunteer in palliative care to what he learned through his estranged father's funeral, Everyday Legacy shows us what it means to be deeply human, undeniably mortal - and how to choose a life that matters.
      "A legacy is something you live, not what you leave behind." So believes Codi Shewan, who spent two decades working in the death-care profession, until in 2014 he leapt from an executive position in corporate funeral services to the entrepreneurial world. As a consultant and speaker, he's on a mission to redefine "legacy" as something that you personify, each day of your life: you can realize the power of your own positive influence while you're still here. He is also the founder of From Strangers To Family, an experience which helps people feel connected, in an often disconnected world.

      This is a book that will change the way you live your life. Everyday Legacy is something you can read over and over, and get something new from it every single time - there are so many bits of wisdom that I was constantly highlighting the pages and nodding my head in agreement. Reading it made me reconsider the way I think and make choices, so that I am personally living the legacy I want to leave. Codi Shewan has hit a home run, and I can't wait to see all the lives he will change with his book. Everyone needs to hear this message, and live by it.
      - Chris Ruden, Motivational Speaker and Season 1 Competitor on Titan Games with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Limb Different/Amputee

      "I put Everyday Legacy down and thought: "how on earth did a book that told me to think about my death get me so excited to go out and live?" But that's what it did, and that's why you should read it."

      How do you thrive in the era of disruption? Reinvent.

      Change is everywhere and coming for us fast. This isn't breaking news. Yet despite knowing this - seeing the impact on our businesses and livelihoods - our human instinct is to resist. Instead of choosing change, we choose the status quo and ride it off a cliff.

      It needn't be this way. What if we could see change as good? In The Reinventionist Mindset, business transformation expert Joe Jackman repositions change as a force to be embraced. Raised in a time of civil disruption - himself transformed from designer to executive and ultimately Reinventionist - Jackman has catalyzed some of the most remarkable transformations of the 21st century. In this book, he gives readers the rare opportunity to go behind the scenes and learn the human how of kickstarting growth and relevance: Dave & Busters, from down and nearly out to spectacular IPO; the surprising reinvention of a New York institution, what Bloomberg Business Week called "Duane Reade's Miracle Makeover"; Flow Water, a bold new take on a tired category; and the exciting reemergence of Staples. Jackman reveals the secret sauce of successful reinvention alongside analysis of transformations that failed.

      The Reinventionist Mindset is a unique, human-centric approach to transformation, a how to for those on a journey to their most powerful and keenly aware the time to move is now.
      An advisor to consumer brands, B2B companies and private equity partners for 30+ years, Joe Jackman has proven invaluable to leaders intent on sharpening strategy and orchestrating brand-driven reinventions of their businesses. Throughout his career as strategist, creative director, and reinventionist, he has helped companies create the most powerful and relevant versions of their brands in record time, and is widely considered to be the leading expert on rapid reinvention.

      Jackman Reinvents works closely with leadership teams and private equity to build Category of One businesses, systematically transforming brands, their value propositions and customer experiences. Jackman helps catalyze value creation: financial value, cultural value, and human value.

      The #MeToo movement has brought unprecedented global awareness to persistent gender inequality in the business world. Meanwhile, corporate North America invests tens of millions of dollars each year in initiatives designed to support high-potential women, with precious little to show for it. The number of female CEOs leading the world's largest companies has remained unchanged in the last twenty years. So what's the missing link? In this provocative, entertaining, and irreverent guide, women's leadership expert Eleanor Beaton tackles the critical yet grossly under-explored link between women's professional advancement and their relationship with power. Leaning in only gets you so far; it's time to unpack why you don't want the power you so desperately crave.
