Intuition is the hot buzzword in business, but specific guidelines on how to trust your gut have been sorely lacking. Put Your Intuition to Work provides that missing link.
Business is about making money, but it’s also about making decisions. There are relatively small decisions, like when to call a meeting or which emails to answer quickly. Then there are the big decisions that can make or break a business―which product to launch, whom to hire, how to spend.
Hard work, analytics, past successes, intelligence, and a great business plan aren’t enough anymore. Many of us are scrambling to discover the path to success but have found instead that we’ve lost our way. Although many business leaders won’t publicize it, intuition is a key part of their decision-making success. Put Your Intuition to Work offers numerous compelling stories from entrepreneurs and executives about how they successfully use intuition in their daily lives. It is an inspiring and practical guide to help you:
- Make successful decisions when you don’t have all the facts.
- Tap into your passion as a personal source of guidance.
- Discover the many ways to listen to your “inner CEO.”

The Making of a CEO is the result of interviews and analysis of top-level CEOs across various sectors. The book has it genesis in a popular course Krishnan taught at IIMB, where the students interviewed and analysed twenty CEOs to learn how they charted a clear path to the top.
The book explores nuances of leading in different contexts like start-ups, large corporations, family businesses, educational institutions, not-for-profits, public sector and the government. The journey to the top involves three key aspects-building professional credibility, managing your career and managing yourself.
Easy to read and dotted with insightful interviews, this book is a must-read for anyone who aspires to be in the top job or is already there.

Compared to 25 years ago, today’s retail experience is a world apart. Almost anything can be ordered, delivered and picked up rapidly, often customized to personal preferences at no extra cost. The smartphone has created a world of limitless consumer expectation and logistical possibility. So how much further can it go? What will the retail experience look like in ten, twenty, or even fifty years–and how should companies, big and small, be preparing?
Amazon may still loom large, say industry experts Robin Lewis and Michael Dart, but now they’ll actually be profitable, as mobile shopping becomes the norm. More importantly, the primacy of access over ownership, and experience over material goods, will force retailers to transform their offerings. Demographic trends, like the glut of seniors and the declining marriage rate, and societal trends, like income polarization and continued urbanization, will have surprising effects on which brands and products take center stage. And the double-edged sword of technology will be fully apparent: no more cards or cash, but pervasive fear of fraud and surveillance from the dark Web and the rise of A.I..
In their previous book, The New Rules of Retail, Lewis and Dart predicted nearly every defining characteristic of today’s marketplace–and the industry snapped it up in two editions. Now, in Retail's Seismic Shift, they do the same for the next era, where retailers will have to be ready for anything.
