    Every day, every one of us is a leader in some way - we just don't necessarily know it. Leadership is about inspiring change and movement, whether on an individual level - a person's attitude, behaviour, emotions or habits - or an organizational level - culture, goals, vision or strategy. By changing the way you approach the concept of leadership, The Everyday Leader will help you recognise and embrace your natural leadership qualities, so that you can be more motivated and empowered in the workplace and at home. 
     
    The Everyday Leader tackles the main challenges that leaders face at some point in their career: leading teams; attaining buy-in from stakeholders; leading through artificial intelligence; whistleblowing; and leading from a distance. But the book also addresses the leadership issues that occur in day-to-day life: listening and empathising; making change attractive and accessible; influencing and persuading; and making the right decision through information overload. 
     
    Providing advice and tools for those looking to polish their existing leadership skills or anyone who wants to take the next step in their career, The Everyday Leader also recognises that leadership doesn't stop once you clock off - these are lessons you can and should take home with you.

    How our beliefs affect our behaviors—and what we can do to replace bad habits with productive new patterns.   Most of us wish to modify, improve, and change our behavior in some way—perhaps making healthier decisions, building better relationships, or handling stress more effectively. Embracing the belief that effective behavior resides within each individual, Behavior Change does not tell readers what they need to do differently—but rather illuminates the process of changing behavior based on four fundamental principles:   * Awareness and acceptance are the first steps to creating lasting change * Understanding what holds habitual behavior in place is key to doing things differently * Improvement means making a new choice and replacing old behavior patterns with more effective and productive ones * Reinforcement emphasizes that practice with feedback brings improvement   For business leaders, teachers, therapists, coaches, or anyone who wants to make positive changes to their own behavior, this guide can start you on your way.

    Thirteenth: Greatest of Centuries

    It cannot but seem a paradox to say that the Thirteenth was the greatest of centuries. To most people the idea will appear at once so preposterous that they may not even care to consider it. A certain number, of course, will have their curiosity piqued by the thought that anyone should evolve so curious a notion. Either of these attitudes of mind will yield at once to a more properly receptive mood if it is recalled that the Thirteenth is the century of the Gothic cathedrals, of the foundation of the university, of the signing of Magna Charta, and of the origin of representative government with something like constitutional guarantees throughout the west of Europe. The cathedrals represent a development in the arts that has probably never been equaled either before or since. The university was a definite creation of these generations that has lived and maintained its usefulness practically in the same form in which it was then cast for the seven centuries ever since. The foundation stones of modern liberties are to be found in the documents which for the first time declared the rights of man during this precious period. (Summary from Preface)

    An introvert? Great at sales? YES. 
     Sales is a skill anyone can learn and master - and introverts are especially good at it once they learn how to leverage their natural strengths. 
    Introverts aren't comfortable with traditional tactics like aggressively pushing a product or talking over a customer's objections. That's the beauty of The Introvert's Edge: it doesn't focus on the sale itself but on a sales system that helps introverts feel sincere instead of sales-y. Powerful and practical, the book reveals how to:Find natural confidencePrepare for every situationPresent your value so that customers want to buySidestep objectionsJudge when the customer's ready to buyAsk for the sale - without askingContinually adapt and improveProfit from a process that doesn't rely on personalityEnjoy sales 
    With stories of introverted entrepreneurs, salespeople, and business owners who went from stagnant to success, The Introvert's Edge shows you how to succeed in sales - without changing who you are.

    “Thoughtful essays on the morality, obligations, practice, and virtues of trusteeship.” —ARNOVA News 
     
    In Entrusted, David H. Smith offers some ideas and raises some issues that may put trusteeship into perspective. The main idea presented in these pages is that trustees should be reflective, that the board should be a community of inquiry, more precisely, a community of interpretation. And, because the trustee’s historically and currently important role has been little studied by moralists, philosophers, or theologians, moral issues associated with nonprofit governance have fallen into the cracks. This book serves to suggest the need for academically sophisticated discussions of the moral parameters of trusteeship, studies that will go beyond and improve on this attempt.
