10. What Lies Beneath by Ajit Menon and Trevor Hough (Phoenix Publishing)
As CEOs, we are often so focused on strategy, systems and structure that we fail to recognise the more human factors influencing the way things work below the surface of our organisation. In this book, two top business psychologists share their insights into the hidden, and often immeasurable, cultural dynamics that can make the difference between success and failure of projects.
In What Lies Beneath, co-authors Ajit Menon and Trevor Hough adopt a storytelling style to unpack and explain the behavioural science behind eight complex and challenging issues that many business leaders will identify with, including scandals, conflict and culture problems.
Many organisations will feel they have lost some of the valuable human connection between their employees during the pandemic, so this book is perfect to help leaders to see beyond the systems and processes to really humanise the workplace.
