Approaching the Corporate Heart

In the revised edition of this ground breaking book, Margot Cairnes explains that the way most business people think is both outdated and obsolete. Not only does this destroy personal and business success, it is also emotionally and spiritually damaging. Cairnes, with her years of international leadership expertise, provides us with an alternative, enticing us to follow the call of our hearts – the call for personal wellbeing and ultimate success. This is a time of great opportunity for those with the courage to change their thinking and operating styles – by learning to develop new ways that are in tune with the new era. Margot carefully guides us on our journey with wisdom, compassion, intelligence, humour and practical commonsense. She discusses the political and personal traps we need to manage, and provides invaluable hints on how to support ourselves throughout our personal and professional lives.

What others have said: “Peaceful Chaos is one of the first books to successfully explore the pivotal connection between individual fulfilment and corporate strategy. The chapter ‘Strategy in Motion’ is essential reading for every executive.”
Robert Bruce, Adviser in Strategic Management Visiting Fellow, MBA Programme, Macquarie University
“This is a very special book. Firstly, it is Australian, written by one of our foremost authorities on the nature of change, and therefore entirely relevant to our local culture and conditions… The book reflects Stephen Covey’s approach in ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People’. ‘Peaceful Chaos’ deserves to be every bit as well known.”

Staying Sane in a Changing World

There’s no doubt that the world is experiencing rapid change: technological advances and globalisation are completely transforming the way we live, including the way we work, communicate and play. We can no longer expect life to be how it was in the past. Consequently, we need to upgrade our thinking so that we can make the most of the opportunities in this constantly evolving world. Staying Sane in a Changing World is a handbook to help navigate our new world. Margot Cairnes, international futurist, author and keynote speaker, has compiled a series of inspirational essays, reflections and thought-starters from her work for national and international professional journals and magazines. These essays present new ways of looking at a range of issues – from work, to leadership, to spirituality and family life – and how they interconnect.
