Jean Robb & Hilary Letts, Hilary Letts
This book is about success and transformation. It shows how, with patience and energy, parents and teachers can turn a child who is noisy, clumsy and forgetful into a child who is calm, careful, thoughtful and attentive - without the aid of drugs which are so often and controversially prescribed for what is labelled ADD. With their groundbreaking methods, Jean Robb and Hilary Letts have had impressive results and in this practical and realistic book they show how to effectively develop a child's potential in a remarkably short time. Giving their expert guidance on dealing with disruptive or bizarre behaviour, they also show how to bring on a child's innate skills - and how every child is capable of overcoming the problem - and the label.

Create a Winning Team

By Kevin Benfield
Authors:
Kevin Benfield
As a team leader, do you believe you can make a real difference to the performance of your team? If you do, Create a Winning Team will help you do just that.This book is a practical and commonsense guide to successful team working. It focuses on the skills that team leaders need to develop to work together effectively - unlike most books about team work, which focus on team building events and games , not the practical day to day challenges of getting great results.With a straightforward, down to earth, no nonsense style avoiding unnecessary jargon and using concrete examples and case studies from young, high performing junior managers working in an international environment, the author covers the often practical actions a team leader can do that really make a difference and which you're unlikely to learn on a leadership course, like pitching in now and again and making people tea! The content is built around a logical structure consisting of a set of questions e.g. What do teams do? How will your team succeed? How do you create a balanced team? The chapter headings themselves tell a clear story and stimulate the reader to continue.

Counter Mentor Leadership

By Kelly Riggs, Robby Riggs
Authors:
Kelly Riggs, Robby Riggs
This book is the result of over twenty-five years of combined experience from Kelly and Robby Riggs-dynamic, occasionally irreverent, always insightful, father (Boomer) and son (Millennial), who work with organizations grappling daily with multi-generational conflict. Through their collaboration, Kelly and Robby share their very different perspectives on the same problems most companies are STILL dealing with, but haven't had the courage or the tools, to address. Issues such as: a shocking lack of leadership skills; the culture-killing generational divide that is demolishing many companies; and the stunning, often unrecognized impact of technology on the workplace. In their "shamelessly funny, brilliantly written" debut book, Kelly and Robby will:· Discuss today's workplace dynamics, including the changes in communication modes, the influx of technology, and the impact of Millennials and Digital Natives · Explain how a one-sided approach to leadership focused on "managing" Millennials is grossly insufficient, resulting in an inability to attract and retain critical young talent· Explore the new challenges of leadership inherent with the explosion of technology-time compression, distractions, complexity and the pace of change· Reveal how old leadership challenges persist, and explore how the younger generation will expose those challenges more than ever· Detail the CounterMentor leadership model and prescribe specific tactics and techniques for addressing both old and new leadership issues

Copywriting In A Week

By Robert Ashton
Authors:
Robert Ashton
Great copywriting just got easierIt's strange to think that there was a time when only the privileged few could read or write. The rest of us relied on the spoken word. Storytelling was used to pass knowledge on from one generation to the next. Now, most of us are literate and use the written word to gather information and inform our decision making. Increasingly we do this online, with social media and messaging enabling rapid, spontaneous global communication. But rather than freeing us from the need for clear, effective written communication, it actually makes good communication even more important. The less we communicate face to face, the greater the opportunity for misunderstandings. Of course, all writing communicates your message to people you cannot see and may never meet. It means you can influence more widely; it also means you must take care not to make assumptions aboutyour reader, especially those who see your public postings. Successful copywriting is constructed from carefully selected words, each with a clear purpose. It is written to prompt feelings, thoughts or actions. It is clear, concise and at times comforting. It is also comprehensible, even to those not yet confident users of your language. Reading this book, and following the techniques it introduces, will make you a more effective writer. Expertise in grammar is not needed as all the necessary jargon is simply defined and, anyway, some forms of business writing deliberately ignorerules. This book is for people who want to write for results. Each of the seven chapters in Copywriting In A Week covers a different aspect:- Sunday: Focusing your message- Monday: Using layout, pictures and colour to make words memorable- Tuesday: Writing effective letters- Wednesday: Making advertising work for you- Thursday: Communicating clearly with the media- Friday: Preparing promotional print- Saturday: Composing proposals and presentation visuals
