Summary

A modern approach based on classic management styles for working and managing people remotely.How do you manage a poor performer over Zoom? How do you casually deliver positive feedback via Slack? What’s the most professional use of a gif?Management was hard enough pre-pandemic, and now, the difficulty in getting things done has dramatically increased. In face-to-face interactions, humans have thousands of indicators to tell them what the other party is thinking and how they are reacting. Resorting to purely digital communication obliterates these clues, stopping us from reading the subtle body language we’ve evolved to use in all interactions to become better leaders, kinder managers, and more effective cogs in the corporate machine.How to Win Friends and Manage Remotely shares real-life examples, scientifically proven ideas, and distillations of tried-and-true business tenets—all mapped to a new virtual-first office. This book is a handbook—a step-by-step guide to common interactions in the workplace, using eight classic management examples: from digitizing your onboarding journey, to helping new recruits, to delivering useful feedback over video conference. Combining academic research and personal experiences across various companies, roles, and countries, this is a roadmap to get readers through the WFH (work from home) quagmire and help us all be more cognizant of others’ perspectives in this brave new world.How to Win Friends and Manage Remotely shows why expressing digital empathy is the most important factor in managing and working with others.Even as companies began going “back to normal,” it wasn’t the normal that anyone knew pre-COVID-19. Two things are certain with this shift: First, we will never go back to “the way things were.” Second, we all must learn to live in a virtual workplace. If we are managers, that means we also need to know how to communicate with, motivate, and coach virtual teams.In the words of Dale Carnegie, how do you “win friends and influence people” in a virtual office?

    The first thing that comes to mind when you think about oral health is definitely oral hygiene. Without a doubt, this is the main factor responsible for healthy teeth and the best help you can possibly get in preventing any complications.Brushing daily and flossing keeps your teeth and gums healthy and reduces the chances of having cavities. However, even when we follow our dentist's advice, some complications still happen. The number-one culprit for this is usually a bad diet.Having tooth cavities is common all over the world. This bacterial infection destroys teeth and can cause serious pain. Millions of people suffer from this problem, and unfortunately, some of them completely avoid treating it and end up with a tooth removed or even worse.As we already know, the number-one enemy is sugar. This well-known fact is incorporated in many health campaigns and the advice of many dentists, but avoiding sugar won't solve your problem completely. Avoiding sugar is just the first step in taking care of your teeth. Other important factors that can negatively affect your oral health are alcohol, cigarettes, and a poor diet.

    Every human being is living a life, but how much humanity does he have? Birth, education, job, marriage, kids, family and at the end…death! Is this the standard cycle of life that has to be followed? What is the ultimate goal of such a life? Why do we take birth? What do we want?    The human body that we have received... should do the duty of being humane. There should be humanity in life. But what is humanity?      According to Param Pujya Dadashri, the Gnani Purush (the enlightened One). The definition of humanity is that when someone hurts you, troubles you, you don't like it. Hence, you should also not hurt anyone. That, according to Him, is the biggest humanity. Whoever understands this and applies it in life means he knows what is humanity.     Getting a human body means one is free to go to any is one of the four forms of life (gattis). One is human form, the other three being – animal form, devgatti (heaven/celestial being) and narak gatti (hell/beast form).     Whatever are the causes so are the effect. If we show humanity, we will get a human body in the next birth. If we are inhumane, we will be re-born in the animal form. If we are extremely bad and inhumane then we are re-born in narak gatti. If we spend our life in doing good for others and help them without any expectations then we get a life in devgatti.    In this Audio book, Param Pujya Dadashri has discussed the concepts of humanity with the humble intention that if people learn about humanity then their human life will be fruitful.

    Title 1 - With the world watching the news each day about the infamous COVID-19 Virus, a version of what is more broadly classified as a "Coronavirus," like SARS, it's hard to ignore the facts and the opinions as many economies are being put on hold, stocks are plummeting, businesses are applying for loans, and everyone is encouraged to stay at home. 
    But what do we know or suspect so far about the beginnings and the nature of the virus? That's something we will inspect at this time. So go ahead and start reading everything I could find about it. I hope this will help you gain greater insights into what's happening. 
    Title 2 - Being stuck at home can be annoying. I watched as my in-laws were eager to hug our children but didn't, just because they wanted to abide by the rules the president of the United States and many other international leaders have set. Some people say they lost their jobs. Others report being sick of one another, not of the virus. Fortunately, I live in a nice-enough home, but I can't imagine how hard it is for some people who live in a small apartment, like the ones I've seen in Tokyo. 
    This book shows you some things you should or should not do during the time of being quarantined because of an epidemic or pandemic.

    A guide to the secrets of rune-reading, an ancient predictive art, that teaches you how to lay out runes and interpret them instantly.
    Once the sacred alphabet of the Germanic people of Northern Europe, runes are more than 2,000 years old. Runes (meaning a secret or mystery) were words of power, once carved on amulets, rings and weapons, and found as inscriptions on tombstones. The 1st rune, Fehu, is connected with cattle, and since wealth was measured in the number of cows a person owned, it has an underlying meaning of material wealth. The 11th rune, Isa, literally means 'ice', signifying danger and the probability of slipping up. Likewise, the 17th rune, Tiwaz, shares its significance with the North Star as an aid to navigation and charting life's path. In this insightful book, each of the runes is fully described, together with the symbolic images and celestial phenomena associated with them. Methods of laying out, or 'casting' the runes are described in order to give a full and comprehensive reading to answer any question. There are six spreads to choose from, from Odin's Rune, a simple reading with one rune stone, to using up to nine runes for deeper insight into the past, present and future.
