Saying sorry is in crisis. On one hand there are anxious PR aficionados and social media teams dishing out apologies with alarming frequency. On the other there are people and organizations who have done truly terrible things issuing much-delayed statements of mild regret.
We have become addicted to apologies but immune from saying sorry.
In January 2018 there were 35 public apologies from high-profile organizations and individuals. That's more than one per day. Between them, in 2017, the likes of Facebook, Mercedes Benz and United Airlines issued over 2,000 words of apologies for their transgressions. Alarmingly, the word 'sorry' didn't appear once.
This perfectly timed book examines the psychology, motivations and even the economic rationale of giving an apology in the age of outrage culture and on-demand contrition. It reveals the tricks and techniques we all use to evade, reframe and divert from what we did and demonstrates how professionals do it best. Providing lessons for businesses and organizations, you'll find out how to give meaningful apologies and know when to say sorry, or not say it at all.
The Apology Impulse is the perfect playbook for anyone - from social media executive through to online influencers and CEOs - who apologise way too much and say sorry far too infrequently.

I would recommend this book for acquisition. Each volume has its own ISBN and there are volume indexes, rather than a master index, so specialist libraries could purchase individual volumes. The different volumes hang together well however, so I would recommend getting the set if possible. This set has arrived on the crest of a wave of academic and, to a lesser extent, public interest. Academic libraries catering for courses in psychology, health-related subjects, education, social policy or economics will all find useful material here. Reference Reviews This series could complement a variety of libraries, such as a home or personal library, office, or academic setting. Wellbeing is a global topic that influences each individual. This series is a valuable resource. American Reference Books Annual The first multi-volume examination of all elements of wellbeing Explores wellbeing from multiple perspectives, including children and families; the workplace; the environment; aging and later life; economics; and policies of wellbeing Each volume brings together leaders of their respective fields in an edited volume of original articles 6 Volumes www.referencewellbeing.com

In today's VUCA world, change is constant - cause-and-effect thinking at executive level will no longer move the needle, and so boards need to become more proactive, collaborative and daring in their approach to organizational strategy. While many boards across the globe continue to direct their companies and interpret their own strategic role based on 20th century models, these outdated methods place severe restrictions on how well a business can perform, or even survive at all, in a modern world. Boards That Dare explores how organizations can create boards that have the strategic capability, the desire and the sheer guts to identify and deliver successful strategic change in a fast-moving and disruptive environment. The book explores: - what the 'ideal' board looks like; - how boards can engage in high-value dialogue and decision-making; - how to improve a board's cognitive understanding to unlock essential insights about their environment; and - the growing need for boards to make difficult strategic decisions. Based on the authors' first-hand experiences, as well as their own research and interviews with board members and chairs of international private, public and not-for-profit organizations, this highly practical and accessible book delivers the necessary answers as to how boards can and should contribute to organizational strategy.
