Excellent Job Design
by Russell John Connor

There has never been a more important time to ensure that jobs are well-designed.
In the face of unprecedented change and continuous uncertainty, there has grown the idea that job descriptions constrain flexibility and responsiveness. In fact these important attributes are achieved by the rigorous definition of job contribution, boundaries and freedom of decision-making.
This handbook provides the framework and templates to enable the design of jobs in two clear steps. It will help recruiting managers better define the job, ensure a correct match with the jobholder and manage performance.
The material in this handbook enables the HR Director to take on a new role; that of The Chief Job Architect.

Assessing Individual Performance, Capability and Potential
by Russell John Connor

Over the last twenty years, in the search for objective data on which to base sound remuneration, selection and talent management decisions, competency based interviewing, assessment centres and psychometric testing have become standard practice. Despite the promises of psychologists and management consultancies, most objective assessments don't payback on the investment of time and cost. This handbook provides a radical alternative and is based on the HR profession's best-kept secret. It is for recruiting managers who want to find the right person to fill their vacancy and HR professionals seeking new ways to identify and manage talent. This is also a resource for coaches, who want to help clients think through where they are now, where they want to be and how to get there. Russell John Connor is the author of Excellent Job Design; A Handbook for Recruiting Managers and HR Professionals

Building a Flourishing Career
Laying the foundations for life-success in an increasingly uncertain and complex world.
by Russell John Connor

Career success is not simply measured here in terms of trajectory, size of job or benefits package. Rather, it is marked by a sense of personal wellbeing and becoming the person that we want to be.

Russell John Connor condenses 30 years' experience of being a manager, coach and consultant to provide a framework for self-reflection. Reflective thinking turns experience into insight, which leads to the widening of personal choice. This is an ideal resource for career coaches and anyone interested in developing the basis for authentic living.

Time and Energy
by Ian Senior

Ian Senior starts from two extremely simple concepts:
a) time and energy are two absolutes on which all economic activity is based; and
b) most humans are economic most of the time.
From these two premises he explains the activities of individuals, groups, societies and nations from the past through to the present and future. The golden age of cheap fossil fuels is waning. This fact will influence every aspect of human activity from the number of years we work to the food and goods we produce. Ian Senior shows how the future will unfold in relation to peace, war, religion, migration, democracy and human behaviour generally.

The Future is Imagined
by Russell John Connor

Who is this guy anyway? This might be your reaction on reading Russell John Connor’s new book especially if you are an evolutionary biologist, economist, social scientist, psychotherapist or management consultant. In all of these fields the focus has been on making the uncertain certain by identifying mechanisms and processes. The Future Is Imagined confronts you with the reality that uncertainty is woven deeply into the fabric of life. At the heart of life and living is a gap in knowledge. Choice is the fundamental atom of life.

When uncertainty and choice are brought centre-stage there are profound consequences for the way that we think about life and all living organisms. It radically reshapes how we think about thinking and it alters for good most of what we currently take as evolutionary gospel, applied economics, psychotherapy, best-practice human resource management, organisation design and social policy-making.
