Everybody has a plan -- until they don't. Philipp Kristian's latest book, RESET , examines what's next for us all and proffers a vision for how we can rewrite our future together. Penned at the height of the pandemic in 2020, Philipp takes readers on a journey through, what he calls, the Big Reset, further contextualizing what this means for the New Global. Exploring how this will impact the Future You and Future of Work, he shapes a resolution for the world we can co-create.

So, how did we get here? Philipp first casts his understanding of how we reached the Big Reset and why this matters. In these initial chapters, Philipp elucidates the tension that is surmounting between competition and collaboration, further purporting a need for a new operating system. Blending pragmatism with a wilful sense of optimism, Philipp reinforces our ability to orchestrate a better future together before defining what this means for a newer, better version of globalism.

He then challenges his readers to reflect on what this means to them and the organisations they contribute to. This expedition is brought to life through refreshing metaphorical prose, such as the kale doughnut (yes, that is correct -- a kale doughnut), aiming to inspire a revaluation of our own modus operandi. The book granulates this down to what this means for intergenerational workplace challenges and a new take on agile leadership.

"This book represents as much an observation of the world around us as it is a remedy for the challenges we're still grappling with today," shares Human Transformation Pioneer and RESET Author Philipp Kristian. "It sets the precedent for us to begin thinking differently about what a RESET really means and the potential it creates for us to change modern humanity forever."

RESET: Rethinking Our World and Creating a Different Future retails for US$35 / £38 (hardcover) and is also available in electronic formats. To order or know more about the book, visit
