Harvard psychiatrist and executive coach Srinivasan S. Pillay illuminates the rapidly-emerging links between modern brain science and the corner office. What does neuroscience have to do with leadership? Everything. Recent advances in brain science and neuroimaging can dramatically improve the way leaders work with colleagues to drive successful change. As the brain is increasingly examined in the context of personal and organizational development, remarkable insights are being uncovered: insights that are leading to powerful new strategies for improving business execution. Pillay reveals six powerful ways that brain science can be used by today’s executives, and presents powerful new interventions for coaches who want to help their clients overcome common leadership problems. Discover how to use positive, “strengths-based” approaches to encourage the brain to learn… how the fascinating neuroscience of social intelligence can help leaders encourage more effective relationships… how to promote innovation and intuition, and overcome intangible vulnerabilities in leaders’ brains… how to transform the “idea” of change into crisp, timely execution… and much more. Leaders and coaches worldwide are already applying this knowledge to dramatically improve personal performance. Now, with Pillay’s help, everyone can.

Authority in Prayer: Praying with Power and Purpose

Authority in Prayer: Praying with Power and Purpose

 

  • ISBN-13: 9781441202161
  • Publisher: Baker Publishing Group
  • Publication date: 5/1/2007
  • File size: 1 MB

You absolutely can reign in life and be the overcomer God intends you to be, taking charge of your personal world and changing the world around you. You don't have to allow sin, Satan, or the circumstances of life to weigh you down.

Beginning with your private world--your thoughts, body, actions, and ultimately your God-ordained destiny--you can take charge. Authority is yours for the taking.

Then, because God established and so honors the principle of authority, He will back you as you walk in the government He has delegated to you concerning your extended world--your home, family, business, and possessions.

Finally, God's plan is for you to partner with Him on the earth in broader realms of influence and authority--your universal world. Jesus, the sovereign King over the earth, wants to rule institutions, cultures, societies, and governments through you and your prayers.

Authority in Prayer will show you how to take hold of God's promises and pray with the authority He wants you to have. God needs you. Are you ready to use your God-given authority to further His kingdom?

 

 

Moods and Markets: A New Way to Invest in Good Times and in Bad

Moods and Markets: A New Way to Invest in Good Times and in Bad

 

  • ISBN-13: 9780132947244
  • Publisher: Pearson Education
  • Publication date: 7/20/2012
  • Edition number: 1
  • Pages: 208
  • Series: Minyanville Media
  • File size: 4 MB

Leading consultant and Minyanville contributor Peter Atwater has helped institutional investors, corporations and policymakers map changing social moods to emerging market shifts, and use that knowledge to identify huge new market opportunities. Now, Atwater shows you how to use the same powerful Horizon PreferenceTM approach to select your own high-performance investments. Utilizing what is often in plain sight, but overlooked and underestimated, Horizon Preference helps you understand how we narrow our physical, time and relationship horizons to the "local" in bad times, and widen them to the "global" in better times — and then translate that knowledge into better investment decisions. Atwater’s Moods and Markets offers powerful new insights into everything from market bubbles to the real challenges of making mergers work… why "farm to table" and "locavore" movements are booming now, and what’s likely to happen next… why Americans now want to rent homes even though it’s become far more affordable to buy them… why the "Arab Spring" is bullish, and higher education is in deep trouble… which businesses prosper in a downturn, which prosper most in an upturn — and why. This book will be an invaluable resource for every serious investor, trader, and money manager.

Making American healthcare work: 3 new eBooks get past ideology to deliver real solutions!

 

Even after Obamacare, America’s healthcare system is unsustainable and headed towards disaster. These three eBooks offer real solutions, not sterile ideology. In Overhauling America's Healthcare Machine: Stop the Bleeding and Save Trillions, leading healthcare expert and entrepreneur Douglas A. Perednia identifies the breathtaking complexity and specific inefficiencies that are driving the healthcare system towards collapse, and presents a new solution that protects patient and physician freedom, covers everyone, and won’t bankrupt America. Perednia shows how to design a far simpler system: one that delivers care to everyone by drawing on the best of both market efficiency and public "universality" — and is backed with detailed logic and objective calculations. Next, in Improving Healthcare Quality and Cost with Six Sigma, four leading experts introduce Six Sigma from the standpoint of the healthcare professional, showing exactly how to implement it successfully in real-world environments. The first 100% hands-on, start-to-finish blueprint for succeeding with Six Sigma in healthcare, this book covers every facet of Six Sigma in healthcare, demonstrating its use through examples and case studies from every area of the hospital: clinical, radiology, surgery, ICU, cardiovascular, laboratories, emergency, trauma, administrative services, staffing, billing, cafeteria, even central supply. Finally, in Reengineering Healthcare: A Manifesto for Radically Rethinking Healthcare Delivery JimChampy (“Reengineering the Corporation”) and Dr. Harry Greenspun show how reengineering methodologies can deliver breakthrough performance and efficiency improvements both within individual healthcare organizations and throughout the entire system, eliminating much of the 40%+ of U.S. healthcare costs now dedicated to administration. They demonstrate how reengineering can refocus investments on aligning quality and providing accessible care for millions more people.

Three 100% practical primers help you drive competitive advantage by optimizing sustainability and operational performance

 

To compete in today’s extraordinarily competitive global environment, organizations need to achieve new levels of sustainability and operational performance. This brand-new package brings together three practical, state-of-the-art primers for doing just that. Robert Palevich’s The Lean Sustainable Supply Chain offers start-to-finish guidance for redesigning company infrastructure and technologies to achieve the powerful benefits that come with integrating "lean" and "green." and benefits. Palevich introduces core concepts of lean green supply chain management, illuminating them with a comprehensive case study showing how to manage change, innovation, talent, execution, inventory, warehousing, and transportation. He demonstrates how to integrate supply chain sustainability into business scorecards; use 3PLs more effectively; drive more value from information, and systematically address every relevant technical issue. Next, in Creating a Sustainable Organization, Peter A. Soyka presents today’s most complete and actionable guide to improving business performance through sustainable practices. Soyka bridges the disparate worlds of the EHS/sustainability professional and the investor/analyst, outlining today’s best evidence about linkages between sustainability and value, discussing key stakeholder relationships, and introducing new practices for managing and measuring sustainability throughout the business. Finally, Arthur V. Hill’s The Encyclopedia of Operations Management is today’s most convenient and useful supply chain/operations management "field manual." Bringing together nearly 1,500 well-organized definitions, it helps you quickly map all areas of these fields, from accounting and distribution through quality management, strategy, transportation, and warehousing. Throughout, Hill offers a shared language and realistic insights for improving any process and supporting any training program.

Relentless  

 

 

In the space of a breath, what he thought was his life...shattered.



Grant Borrows has been Shifted- in the silence between heartbeats, his whole life fundamentally altered. There's another man in the world wearing his face and living his life. What's more, the man staring back from his mirror is a stranger.



But the changes don't stop at skin-level. Inexplicably, he's able to affect objects around him by simply thinking about them. And as he soon learns, he's become the central figure in a vast web of intrigue that stretches from an underground global conspiracy to a prophecy dating back over seven thousand years. Enemies and allies find him at every turn, but one thing they learn all too soon is that you don't want to push Grant Borrows too far...



Can destiny be undone?



The players are ready.

The game is in motion.

And the pace is: Relentless.

A Short History of the World  

 

 

Overview

A Short History of the World is a short and easy-to-read history book that relates the history of our world from the Big Bang to the present day. It assumes no prior knowledge of past events and 32 maps have been especially drawn to give the reader a better understanding of where events occurred.

The author chooses what he sees as the most important empires and events and links them to make a flowing narrative as opposed to a dry series of facts. Going through history, we learn how and when empires and nation states developed, how the major religions affected world history and the devastation they caused, how the Muslims and Chinese led development for many centuries, how the great explorers changed world history and how we finally came to understand the size of the planet on which we live.

The book's purpose is not to come up with any ground-breaking new historical theories. Instead it aims to give a broad overview of the key events so that non- historians will feel less embarrassed about their lack of historical knowledge when discussing the past. The result is a history book that is reassuringly epic in scope but refreshingly short in length - an excellent place to start to bring your knowledge of world history up to scratch!
