    One of today’s most successful entrepreneurs shares his story “of inspiration and information [that] will inspire you to push yourself to the next level” (Stedman Graham, businessman, speaker, and author of Identity Leadership).   Terry Giles, “the man behind the scenes who litigated—and sometimes mitigated—some of the most sensationally nasty celebrity and political dramas of the last several decades” (The Texas Tribune), attributes his own success to being part of “the fifteen percent” of people who are able to rise above despair and succeed against all odds. Using examples from his career and life—defending child sex abuse victims, his involvement in Monica Lewinsky’s trial, and even managing Dr. Ben Carson’s 2016 presidential campaign—he illustrates these ideas in action. In each chapter, you’ll learn valuable skills, including fearlessness, embracing underdog status, visualizing the future, and positive thinking—and proving that you do not have to be a victim of bad circumstances to adopt the superpowers of “the fifteen percent.”   Entertaining, inspiring, and full of useful insights, The Fifteen Percent will help you overcome whatever’s holding you back, so you can achieve lasting success.   “A tour de force that encapsulates a lifetime of wisdom and service that exemplifies what it is to truly live the American Dream . . . a surefire recipe for outlandish success—I know; because I have been blessed to count Terry among my closest mentors and friends for over thirty years.” —Armstrong Williams, broadcast entrepreneur and syndicated columnist   “A powerful and balanced account of his personal and professional journeys . . . it truly exemplifies his vision, courage, kindness, humility, and old-fashioned grit.” —Robert J. Brown, author of You Can’t Go Wrong Doing Right

    Empowerment Takes More Than a Minute tells the story of a young manager whose attempts to turn his troubled company around through traditional top-down, command-and-control management are failing. Reluctantly, he contacts an expert in empowerment, even though he feels like he's already tried that too. Step by step, the expert helps him understand why his past and present efforts have fallen short and exactly what he needs to do to create an empowered workforce. The process as it unfolds is complex, paradoxical and counterintuitive -but well worth the effort.
    The new introduction dispels the notion that empowerment is a bygone fad. No matter what its name, the essential concept-that organizations can achieve extraordinary results by recognizing and taking advantage of the skills, experience, and knowledge already existing in the organization-will always be relevant.
    The new epilogue describes obstacles companies have encountered and overcome and outlines empowerment strategies that have proved successful during the fifteen years the authors have been consulting, researching, and refining these concepts.
    Although sometimes arduous, the journey to empowerment is well worth making. In fact, unleashing the power of people in an organization may be the only way to continue to do business in a competitive, complicated marketplace.

    Harmonic Pattern trading uses the direct pattern recognition from the price chart to predict the potential turning point of the financial market. Although the history of the harmonic pattern goes back to the Gartley's book "Profits in the Stock Market" in 1935, Harmonic Pattern trading became popular in last few decades. In comparison to many contemporary predictive techniques, there are far less literature available to study this technique in several different scientific angles. Most of harmonic pattern trader focuses on the visual aspect of the pattern keeping very small attention on the precision aspect. In this book, we want to introduce the brand new precision concept, Pattern Completion Interval and Potential Continuation Zone, for harmonic pattern trading. In the first few chapters of this book, we will illustrate the concept and the operating mechanism behind these new techniques. After that, we will focus on how to manage your order and risk with Harmonic pattern. We will illustrate how to apply this precision concept for both market order and pending order setup for your practical trading. At the end of the book, we describe the rolling ball effect and we show how it can affect your turning point strategy. In the final chapter, we introduce Mutual Pattern Turning Point Strategy for your practical trading. Then we show you three essential but powerful steps to trade with turning point strategy. Please note that we use our own custom ratio sets for harmonic patterns presented in this book because our backtesting and forward testing results indicates that they perform better than the original patterns. The studies presented in this book are the results after the intensive computerized research using Harmonic Patterns. If you want to dig deeper on rolling ball effect and other mutual patterns for turning point prediction, you can also read our book: Scientific Guide to Price Action and Pattern Trading.
