Summary

Have you ever noticed that great CEOs, managers and other people in charge always seem to know exactly what to say in every situation? Author Pamela Straker, with more than 25 years experience as a mental health and management professional, has. And in Let Me Stop You Right There, she outlines various common scenarios for effective communication with office archetypes: “by-any-means-necessary” overachievers, gossips, office invaders, negativity-mongering complainers, and many more. Chapter-by-chapter, Straker addresses effective means of communication in the workplace with great humor and insight. Each chapter outlines a scenario, proposes the response, or “line,” to bring the discussion to its logical conclusion, and provides an explanation of why these lines work. Whether a CEO, manager, or supervisor, Let Me Stop You Right There is sure to become an indispensable addition to your business library.

It discusses at length how Agile project management principles and practices empower project managers to adapt to and manage effectively a new kind of innovative product development.This book will be useful to those Agile beginners who want a better understanding of what agile is all about. The methods and techniques are described in a simple way to understand language and in this regard, this book forms a useful collection of recipes for people wanting to try out many of its agile methods and techniques. 
    There are some people who perhaps think that there is no need of project management methods these days. That either Agile don't require them, or Agile is somehow incompatible with them. Those people will also benefit from this book because it clearly shows how agile methods which were never designed for project management can be combined with an international project management methodology to help leverage the strengths of both.

    The Art of Caring Leadership -...

    If your people know you care about them, they will move mountains. Employee engagement and loyalty expert Heather Younger outlines nine ways to manifest the radical power of caring support in the workplace. 
     
    Heather Younger argues that if you are looking for increased productivity, customer satisfaction, or employee engagement, you need to care for your employees first. People will go the extra mile for leaders who show they are genuinely concerned not just with what employees can do but with who they are and can become. But while most leaders think of themselves as caring leaders, not all demonstrate that care in consistent ways. Your employees will judge you by your actions, not your intentions.  
     
    Based on Younger's interviews with over eighty leaders for her podcast Leadership with Heart—including Howard Behar, former president of the Starbucks Coffee Company; Judith Scimone, senior vice president and chief talent officer at MetLife; Garry Ridge, CEO and chairman of the board of the WD-40 Company; and Shawnté Cox Holland, head of culture and engagement at Vanguard—this book outlines nine ways that leaders can make all employees feel included and cared for. She even provides access to a self-assessment so you can measure your progress as a caring leader. But this is not a cookie-cutter approach: just as Monet and Picasso expressed themselves very differently, each leader should express caring in his or her own unique, personal style.  
     
    Younger takes an often nebulous, subjective concept and makes it concrete and actionable. Leaders have the power to change the lives of those they lead. They shouldn't just want to care, they should see caring as imperative for the success of their employees and their organization.
