Summary

Stata is one of the most popular statistical software in the world and suited for all kinds of users, from absolute beginners to experienced veterans. This book offers a clear and concise introduction to the usage and the workflow of Stata. Included topics are importing and managing datasets, cleaning and preparing data, creating and manipulating variables, producing descriptive statistics and meaningful graphs as well as central quantitative methods, like linear (OLS) and binary logistic regressions and matching. Additional information about diagnostical tests ensures that these methods yield valid and correct results that live up to academic standards. Furthermore, users are instructed how to export results that can be directly used in popular software like Microsoft Word for seminar papers and publications. Lastly, the book offers a short yet focussed introduction to scientific writing, which should guide readers through the process of writing a first quantitative seminar paper or research report. The book underlines correct usage of the software and a productive workflow which also introduces aspects like replicability and general standards for academic writing. While absolute beginners will enjoy the easy to follow point-and-click interface, more experienced users will benefit from the information about do-files and syntax which makes Stata so popular. Lastly, a wide range of user-contributed software („Ados") is introduced which further improves the general workflow and guarantees the availability of state of the art statistical methods.

    Discover The Power Of Communication And Master The #1 Leadership Skill To Success…
     
     
     
    Are you 100% aware of your character traits and how they influence your leadership?
     
     
     
    Have you ever run into miscommunication issues with the team you lead?
     
     
     
    On a scale from 1-10, how good would you rate your communication skills?
     
     
     
    …
     
     
     
    If your answer is not 10, you’ve already left money on the table.
     
     
     
    Effective communication is an integral element of professional success.
     
     
     
    No matter if you define success through profit or impact, every leader needs to apply certain skills to properly get their message across.
     
     
     
    Unfortunately, you are not born as someone like Tony Robbins who can motivate hundreds of people to change their lives through the message he spreads.
     
     
     
    First of all, he wasn´t born with this skill either.
     
     
     
    And second of all, no one else is.
     
     
     
    Effective communication is a soup of psychological insights, simple nonverbal and verbal tools to successfully deliver, receive and understand an intended message. 
     
     
     
    If you know how to eat the soup, you´ll be able to erase all kinds of drama from your workplace and only focus on creating profit and positive impact.
     
     
     
    Fortunately, good communication skills are not written in your DNA. They are an easily attainable skill set that can be learned faster than you think…
     
     
     
    ...if you know where and how to start.
     
     
     
    In “Communication in the Workplace”, you´ll discover:
     
     
     
    - How to speak a language that no one will ever misunderstand
     
    - How to increase your likeability as a leader without losing your authority
     
    - How to create a team of warriors who love to fight for your ideas
     
    - How to skyrocket your sales and hack your customer's brain
     
    - How to overcome communication barriers even if you have to deal with the most difficult people
     
    - How to ask the right questions and never fear not getting a response
     
    - The 93% that is responsible for effective communication (hint: not your words)
     
    - How to become a master in public speaking and own the stage like Tony Robbins
     
     
     
    And much more.
     
     
     
    Effective communication is not only a way to deal with conflicts.
     
     
     
    Even if you have a great relationship with all your team members, you most likely still lack in client relationships, profitability or engagement.
     
     
     
    Integrating effective communication tools into your messages will help your business to survive tough times and give a step up in good times.
     
     
     
    Be proactive and prepare yourself before you fall into the communication trap of leadership.
     
     
     
    If you want to know how to deliver, send and receive messages in the role of a leader, then check out this book right now!
