Real Estate Titans

Pengarang   :  Erez Cohen            

Imprint           :  New Jersey :  Wiley, 2019 

Mukasurat    :  286    

Sinopsis :

A complete guide for the real estate industry

Fresh out of college, Erez Cohen set foot in an investment banking firm. Whether through luck or fortune, he was assigned a position with the real estate group. He was handed a book that soon birthed his love affair with real estate that continues to this day. 

In Real Estate Titans, Cohen draws on his personal experiences wherein he became a teacher and research assistant to his mentor, Dr. Linneman. During that time, he met, talked, and heard stories from distinguished real estate titans, such as Stephen Ross, Barry Sternlicht, Sam Zell, Steven Roth, et al. This informative time placed him in a unique position to collect knowledge from many of these titans. Surrounded by so many titans, Erez's curiosity grew and resulted in the key lessons you'll discover inside. 

  • What inspires these titans to work so hard and reach such extraordinary levels of success? 
  • What are the main elements and traits inside of them that propel them to be so grandiose? 
  • How have these individuals, which most of the time had less resources and talent, succeeded on a much bigger scale than so many of their competitors? 

In Real Estate Titans, Erez reveals the seven key lessons he learned from his journey of discovery - key lessons that revealed themselves both through these interviews and his time working with multiple mentors and magnates in his careers

4. Banking, Lending and Real Estate     

Banking , Lending

Pengarang   :  Claudio Scardovi            

Imprint           :  London  :  Routledge,  2019 

Mukasurat    :  175     

Sinopsis :

This book deals directly with the risk / return multiple trade-offs coming out of the closely intertwined relationship between banking and real estate. The authors explore how banks could embrace a more proactive approach to make the most of their, mostly ‘long only’, exposure to real estate, and create positive spill over effects on their real estate counterparts and the sector as a whole. It provides a "state of the art" representation and analysis of the strategies that best practices in banking are adopting to manage these issues and plan for a new set of interrelations, driving a "virtuous circle" as opposed to the current one.

Banking, Lending and Real Estate is built on the academic knowhow and professional expertise of the authors, who have been researching, writing and working on this joint topic for over a decade. With its pragmatic approach, it allows the reader to capture which leading hedge active and holistic approaches are available today and proven to treat, for example, the banks’ overexposure to this asset class; to manage "unlikely to pay" and sub-performing positions; and to optimize the recovery value coming from the work out of real estate related NPL (and underlying assets). Case studies and relevant examples are provided, leveraging on the authors’ experience in consulting projects in the EMEA region and from working with global, regional and domestic banks and the real estate players acting across its value chain.

This book will appeal to both academics and business practitioners within the banking, financial services and real estate sectors, as well as professionals from financial and strategic/industrial advisory working in those fields.

5. The Organisation of Tomorrow : How AI, Blokchain and Analytics Turn Your  Business Into a Data Organisation  

Organisation of Tomorrow

Pengarang   :   Dr. Mark Van Rijmenam       

Imprint           :    New York :  Routledge, 2020 

Mukasurat    :    192

Sinopsis :

The Organisation of Tomorrow presents a new model of doing business and explains how big data analytics, blockchain and artificial intelligence force us to rethink existing business models and develop organisations that will be ready for human-machine interactions. It also asks us to consider the impacts of these emerging information technologies on people and society.

Big data analytics empowers consumers and employees. This can result in an open strategy and a better understanding of the changing environment. Blockchain enables peer-to-peer collaboration and trustless interactions governed by cryptography and smart contracts. Meanwhile, artificial intelligence allows for new and different levels of intensity and involvement among human and artificial actors. With that, new modes of organising are emerging: where technology facilitates collaboration between stakeholders; and where human-to-human interactions are increasingly replaced with human-to-machine and even machine-to-machine interactions. This book offers dozens of examples of industry leaders such as Walmart, Telstra, Alibaba, Microsoft and T-Mobile, before presenting the D2 + A2 model – a new model to help organisations datafy their business, distribute their data, analyse it for insights and automate processes and customer touchpoints to be ready for the data-driven and exponentially-changing society that is upon us

This book offers governments, professional services, manufacturing, finance, retail and other industries a clear approach for how to develop products and services that are ready for the twenty-first century. It is a must-read for every organisation that wants to remain competitive in our fast-changing world.

6. Mapping Motivation for Leadership    

Mapping Motivation

Pengarang   :  James Sale               

Imprint           :   Oxon :  Routledge, 2020

Muka surat   :   179    

Sinopsis :

This is a practical guide to leadership in the 21st century and builds on the ‘4+1’ model outlined in the author's original book Mapping Motivation: Unlocking the Key to Employee Energy and Engagement. There is an increasing body of evidence, that the single most important aspect of being a leader relates to managing emotions effectively, and this management goes way beyond simply ‘understanding’ emotional intelligence; it is in fact a practice and one that is intimately connected with personal development and growth, and with energy. Energy, as Mapping Motivation made clear, is synonymous with motivation. The effective leaders of tomorrow will be those who understand their motivators, who regularly measure their motivators, sustain and replenish and maximise their motivators, and who do the same for their employees.

Clearly, there is a link here with the book on engagement, for leaders who do so will engage their employees. However, this book not only covers the motivational side of leadership, but also explores in detail the skill sets necessary in the ‘4+1’ model: thinking skills, action skills, team skills and motivational skills plus that indefinable ‘something’ that is a commitment to personal development, so that we as leaders are not trying to solve today’s problems with yesterday’s training as our only internal resource.
