    Dozens of books have been written about how to do training more effectively, with more impact, and so on. Yet despite all that well-meaning advice, of the $70 billion spent on training in the U. S., only 12-15 percent actually gets applied in ways that contribute tangible value to organizations.
    
    But Tim Mooney and Robert Brinkerhoff have discovered that some iconoclastic trainers achieve breakthrough results by having the courage to break away from the usual approaches and identify what is really needed and what really works. Studying why these bold training leaders were so successful implementing Brinkerhoff and Mooney’s High Impact Learning tools and methods led them to distill the principles and practices outlined in Courageous Training.
    
    Mooney and Brinkerhoff lay out the Four Pillars of Courageous Training, illustrating each with real-life examples that highlight specific concepts, methods, and tools. Going deeper, they delve into the mindset needed to truly transform training, which they summarize in the Courageous Training Code. And they present four in-depth case studies, written by training leaders in major organizations, showing the audacious actions these leaders took to produce dramatic—and measurable—business results.

    In 1643, the undefeated Japanese sword-master, Miyamoto Musashi, wrote a book known as The Book of the Five Rings, in which he described his understanding of what it took to survive life and death duels. In his mid-50s when writing, he had reached a point of clarity where he saw that real expertise was based on mastering of basic principles – that true excellence was founded on using and deeply understanding basic principles. So he decided to share them. Richard Keegan started his own journey in Lean, World Class Manufacturing, Benchmarking or Best Practice in 1986 with Williams & Woods / Nestlé in Tallaght, Dublin, where he developed his basic understanding of how to work with and through people to get things done in a business context. Having written several books on the subject, he presents his insights – as best understood at this point – in the form of the Five Rings of Lean Business Excellence, to help you on your journey towards your personal and business excellence goal.

    Every year, 6 million companies and more than 100,000 products are launched. They all need an awesome name, but many (such as Xobni, Svbtle, and Doostang) look like the results of a drunken Scrabble game. In this entertaining and engaging book, ace naming consultant Alexandra Watkins explains how anyone-even noncreative types-can create memorable and buzz-worthy brand names. No degree in linguistics required. The heart of the book is Watkins's proven SMILE and SCRATCH Test-two acronyms for what makes or breaks a name. She also provides up-to-date advice, like how to make sure that Siri spells your name correctly and how to nab an available domain name. And you'll see dozens of examples-the good, the bad, and the "so bad she gave them an award." Alexandra Watkins is not afraid to name names.
