As an adult TCK, I have long wrestled with how I fit into this world. This book is the 'bible' for anyone who wants to understand the blessings and the curses of growing up multiculturally — Wm. Paul Young, author of the #1 New York Times Best Seller 'The Shack'

Growing up as a TCK has been a gift and has significantly shaped my life and work. As I interact with world leaders one day and with those living in refugee camps the next, I continually draw upon my experience of living among different cultures. I am delighted to see the lessons learned from the traditional TCK experience live on in this new
edition of 'Third Culture Kids'.

— Scott Gration, Maj. Gen. USAF (RET), President Obama's Special Envoy to Sudan

I called the first edition of Third Culture Kids 'absolutely brilliant'. This revised edition continues to earn that acclaim. It's a powerhouse of a book through which readers growing up 'among worlds'--and their parents and the professionals responsible for their care and teaching--become able to take leadership of the challenges and
opportunities presented by such a rick and complex childhood.

— Barbara F. Schaetti, Ph.D., Transition Dynamics, second generation dual national Adult TCK and lead author of 'Making a World of Difference'
Because Third Culture Kids have been exposed to other cultures in significant ways and have experienced multiple transitions while growing up, it's in their DNA to thrive within the pace and nature of globalization. This book is a must to understand the challenges TC Ks face and the unique skills they can leverage as global leaders. — Katrina Burris, Ph.D., CEO of MKB Conseil & Coaching and author of Global Nomadic Leaders: How to Identify, Attract, and Retain

Ambition Redefined

Kathryn Sollmann
Authors:
Kathryn Sollmann

It's time to acknowledge that not all working women are interested in climbing the corporate ladder or securing the corner office. Most want and need flexible, less life-consuming work to accommodate their real lives, and it's not weak, lacking ambition or letting down the sisterhood to pursue professional fulfillment and financial security through less lofty, or headline-making ways.Eye-opening and practical, Ambition Redefined is a welcome alternative to 'women's business books'. Sollmann calls it like it is: everyday women want and need flexible work that allows them to unapologetically pursue their own brand of ambition and success. She shows them how without sacrificing themselves, their careers or their families. Armed with practical insights and tools, readers will be empowered to go after opportunities beyond traditional definitions of work, career and success. They will learn why they should never leave the workforce, how to make a case for flexibility in a current full-time job, how to find flexible employers, industries and job functions and how to return to work after time away raising children or caring for elderly parents.

The Conscious Parent

Shefali Tsabary
Authors:
Shefali Tsabary

Turning the traditional notion of parenting on its head, Dr Tsabary shifts the epicentre of the parent-child relationship away from the standard parent-to-child 'know it all' approach to a mutual 'parent-with-child' relationship in which the parent learns alongside the child.Parents unwittingly pass on an inheritance of psychological pain and emotional rigidity to their children. To handle the behaviour that results from this, traditional books on parenting abound with quick-fix techniques for control and behaviour management.In contrast, by following Shefali Tsabary's philosophy and the advice in The Conscious Parent, you will begin to learn from your child, accept who they are and not only feel closer to them, but also more in touch with yourself. As you develop both emotionally and spiritually, so you will feel more confident in regard to raising well-adjusted, happy children.(P)2015 Namaste Publishing
