In October 1985, at age twenty-seven, Danny Meyer, with a good idea and scant experience, opened what would become one of New York City's most revered restaurants—Union Square Cafe. Little more than twenty years later, Danny is the CEO of one of the world's most dynamic restaurant organizations, which includes eleven unique dining establishments, each at the top of its game. How has he done it? How has he consistently beaten the odds and set the competitive bar in one of the toughest trades around? In this landmark book, Danny shares the lessons he's learned while developing the winning recipe for doing the business he calls "enlightened hospitality." This innovative philosophy emphasizes putting the power of hospitality to work in a new and counterintuitive way: The first and most important application of hospitality is to the people who work for you, and then, in descending order of priority, to the guests, the community, the suppliers, and the investors. This way of prioritizing stands the more traditional business models on their heads, but Danny considers it the foundation of every success that he and his restaurants have achieved. Some of Danny's other insights: Hospitality is present when something happens for you. It is absent when something happens to you. These two simple concepts—for and to—express it all. Context, context, context, trumps the outdated location, location, location. Shared ownership develops when guests talk about a restaurant as if it's theirs. That sense of affiliation builds trust and invariably leads to repeat business. Err on the side of generosity: You get more by first giving more. Wherever your center lies, know it, name it, believe in it. When you cede your core values to someone else, it's time to quit. Full of behind-the-scenes history on the creation of Danny's most famous restaurants and the anecdotes, advice, and lessons he has accumulated on his long and ecstatic journey to the top of the American restaurant scene, Setting the Table is a treasure trove of innovative insights that are applicable to any business or organization.

How did a Venice Beach T-shirt vendor become television's most successful producer? How did an entrepreneur who started in a garage create the most iconic product launches in business history? How did a timid pastor's son overcome a paralyzing fear of public speaking to captivate sold-out crowds at Yankee Stadium, twice? How did a human rights attorney earn TED's longest standing ovation, and how did a Facebook executive launch a movement to encourage millions of women to "lean in"? They told brilliant stories. In The Storyteller's Secret: From TED Speakers to Business Legends, Why Some Ideas Catch on and Others Don't, keynote speaker, bestselling author, and communication expert Carmine Gallo reveals the keys to telling powerful stories that inspire, motivate, educate, build brands, launch movements, and change lives. The New York Times has called a well-told story "a strategic tool with irresistible power" - the proof lies in the success stories of 50 icons, leaders, and legends featured in The Storyteller's Secret: entrepreneurs like Richard Branson, Sara Blakely, Elon Musk, Steve Jobs, and Sheryl Sandberg; spellbinding speakers like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Bryan Stevenson, and Malala Yousafzai; and business leaders behind famous brands such as Starbucks, Southwest Airlines, Wynn Resorts, Whole Foods, and Pixar. Whether your goal is to educate, fundraise, inspire teams, build an award-winning culture, or to deliver memorable presentations, a story is your most valuable asset and your competitive advantage. In The Storyteller's Secret, Gallo explains why the brain is hardwired to love stories - especially rags-to-riches stories - and how the latest science can help you craft a persuasive narrative that wins hearts and minds. "The art of storytelling can be used to drive change," says billionaire entrepreneur Richard Branson. And since the next decade will see the most change our civilization has ever known, your story will radically transform your business, your life, and the lives of those you touch. Ideas that catch on are wrapped in story. Your story can change the world. Isn't it time you shared yours?

Practical, inspired, and bite-sized wisdom from renowned religious scholar Erica Brown, these daily meditations help add greater depth and purpose to your leadership. Few leaders have a plan when it comes to soul-building at work. As a result, they often find themselves spiritually or emotionally depleted, and they can lose the larger ideals that made them want to lead in the first place. Take Your Soul to Work is a daily meditational for business and nonprofit leaders looking for inspiration. Each entry focuses on a different quality, emotion, or aspiration (“on discipline,” “on compassion,” “on impermanence,” “on callousness,” “on productive narcissism”) by presenting a relevant quote, story, or question inspired by the traditions of all faiths as well as artists, poets, and business thinkers to help leaders reframe, rethink, and reset. Leaders rarely have time to reflect between the meeting, calls, and emails that eat away at the work day. With just one thought per day for the entire year, these 365 meditations will anchor, ground, and enrich corporate titans and nonprofit visionaries. Take Your Soul to Work provides spiritual nourishment and encourages leaders to steer their organizations with honesty, grace, and courage—and experience transcendence in the process.

Proven strategies for managing private wealth today “In Freedom from Wealth, Charles Lowenhaupt is selling wisdom for emotionally intelligent wealth holders who want to beat the odds that wealth can’t bring happiness. Refreshing to read a book that is as much about preserving harmony and balance as it is about preserving wealth!” —Danny Meyer, author of Setting the Table: The Transforming Power of Hospitality in Business “When an entrepreneur discovers that the ‘struggle’ to grow an enterprise was in fact one of the most exhilarating and meaningful experiences life can offer, making sound decisions about inheritance and trusts becomes easier. Charles Lowenhaupt asks the question few other advisors dare to, namely, ‘What is the purpose of your wealth?’ Freedom from Wealth tackles this question and is a tribute to the possibilities of a meaningful legacy—and life—along with a how-to guide on best practices for wealthy families.” —Charlotte B. Beyer, founder and CEO, Institute for Private Investors “What is wealth for? . . . Lowenhaupt and Trone pose this question and offer superb methods for helping wealth owners answer it—and then provide the systems required to purposefully achieve that answer. I will be sharing this book with the families I still help and with their single family office leaders. I will require them to read it.” —James E. Hughes Jr., author of Family Wealth “Freedom from Wealth is a remarkable book that reflects on issues that wealthy clients face every day. The authors have taken an innovative approach to using philanthropy as a way to create healthy families.” —Charles W. Collier, Senior Philanthropic Advisor, Harvard University, and author of Wealth in Families About the Book: The conventional wisdom is that the ultra wealthy get and stay that way by being smart about their money. In fact, families of significant wealth often neglect the simplest but most profound question in managing the family fortune: What is the wealth for? Freedom from Wealth provides a detailed road map for managing fortunes across generations. Charles Lowenhaupt, one of the world’s most respected experts on family wealth, and Don Trone, one of Investment Advisor’s “30 most influential people in financial services,” bring to life the wealth management lessons learned by some of the world’s richest individuals and families. Drawing on decades of experience, the authors offer an insider’s perspective and share best practices to help you manage your or your family’s wealth. Rich in detail and insight, Freedom from Wealth offers a thorough, step-by-step process that individuals and their advisors can apply to investment management, governance, succession planning, education, and philanthropy. Written in an accessible, conversational language, Freedom from Wealth shows private wealth holders, their families, and their professional advisors how to: Develop clear principles to outline the purposes of wealth across every aspect of life and across generations Formulate a set of standards—a “business plan”—based on family principles Select and work with a Standards Director who can effectively create, implement, and monitor the standards Protect wealth by carefully executing due diligence Implement the same processes and infrastructure that institutional investors—the smart money— have always used Freedom from Wealth comes with valuable tools such as a model Private Wealth Policy Statement and a Self-Assessment Instrument that allow you to measure the success of your wealth management programs. Apply the methods of Freedom from Wealth to ensure that family money actually works for the family.
