Why the Rhino Scatters His S#!T
Why the Rhino Scatters His S#!T is about learning to thrive in 21st-century organizations. It’s about liberating ourselves from the beliefs, behaviors and assumptions that limit our potential and rob us of fulfillment.
Michael-John Bristow and Nigel Bristow answer this question and explain how you too can achieve great things at work. Blending the wisdom of experience with groundbreaking neuroscience and psychology research, they provide concrete action ideas that will help you achieve your potential and experience greater fulfillment at work.
Michael-John and Nigel have the rare ability to translate the complex into simple, useable insights that resonate at all organization levels. Their stories are energising and memorable; their ideas are actionable and valuable for both the individual and the organization. The concepts they teach have inspired me and many others I have worked with to expand our impact and take greater control of our careers.

WHERE's THE GIFT?
Why do only a few people truly excel? Some point to innate talent. Others suggest education. Research doesn't support either. In Where’s the Gift? you’ll discover the secret that few have learned: the ability to capitalize on feedback, in all its forms, will do more to drive success than IQ, education, or talent will.
- Get the timely feedback you need to reach your goals.
- Handle criticism with less anxiety and frustration.
- Turn critics into collaborators and colleagues into coaches.
- Make sure that you are the first to know about concerns.
- Use feedback to ensure the success of any company priority, such as customer service, safety or quality.
- Find the hidden gift in ALL feedback, even when it is vague, inaccurate or unfair.
Where’s the Gift?” is as profound a work as any I have read. Michael-John and Nigel Bristow’s simple understated approach sheds light on one of the most important things we all need to do more: listen and learn to all forms of feedback, without judgment or emotion. They have been talking about “mindfulness” long before it became popular. I believe “Where’s the Gift?” to be the single most important catalyst for any success I have today, professionally or personally.

THE BEYOND JOB SATISFACTION FIELDBOOK
This book is based on a very important premise: personal success is only sustainable when your needs as well as those of your employer are satisfied. If either your needs or those of your organization are not met, the long-term relationship will be undermined by a perception of inequity.
Whatever your position in the organization, this fieldbook
will help you make a real difference—for yourself
and the organization.
When you are engaged, vital, fulfilled and employable,
you are making a difference for yourself. And when you
are engaged, vital and having an impact at work, you are
making a difference for the organization.
In today's world it is easy to get trapped by our traditional thoughts and practices. The delightful stories in Beyond Job Satisfaction will open your eyes to career barriers and solutions you may not have seen before. These concepts have energized me and many others at Boeing to take more control of our careers and our lives.
