Top leaders in the business community - a financial journalist, a bestselling author, and cofounder of the Global Negotiation Initiative at Harvard University - teach you the character traits every employer wants to see in today's worker. In the race to become multitasking superhumans, we've lost touch with the actual root of where all these valuable skills are found. This audio gives you the training you need to set yourself apart from others and to advance to the next stage in your employment, whether you are just starting out or need to reinvigorate your career. Some of the best business minds at work today identify the principles of productivity and elevating your career. Why not be known for great leadership skills instead of training one employee for a single task? Why not be known for a winning personality instead of for being able to deal with a difficult person? Why not be known for impressive calm and cool confidence in your negotiation skills instead of just getting the deal done? Don't be known for any singular skill - be known for inspiring character traits that make you highly promotable in any workplace. This audio also includes helpful résumé and cover letter templates, as well as an interview checklist. With contributions from Reyna Gobel, a financial journalist who has written extensively on adapting to today's career marketplace; Joshua Weiss, an international negotiation expert who speaks and writes on the topic of negotiating not only in the boardroom but also on the factory floor; and bestselling author Brian Tracy, who shares wisdom from his business book classic, Eat That Frog!, this audio is a must-listen for those looking to catapult their careers. 1.

Finding a job is a confusing and anxiety-provoking process for many individuals with Asperger's Syndrome (AS) who may not know what they are qualified to do and may struggle to communicate their value to employers. In this book, Asperger's employment expert Barbara Bissonnette describes exactly what it takes to get hired in the neurotypical workplace. Every aspect of finding employment is covered, from defining strengths and researching occupations, to marketing oneself and projecting confidence and enthusiasm in interviews. Job-hunters are taught how to develop a personal profile of their talents and skills, their ideal work environment, and important work criteria. They are then shown how to set realistic goals and develop an effective job search plan. There is detailed instruction on networking, including how to find contacts and what to say. A wealth of checklists, templates, sample scripts and written communications accompany the text. Upfront, engaging and highly practical, this will be an essential guide for individuals with AS entering the workforce for the first time, as well as experienced workers who have lost jobs or wish to change careers but are uncertain about how to find the best match for their abilities.
Even the most gifted screenwriters get lost along the way. Inspired by the work of mythologist Joseph Campbell and psychologist Jean Houston, this title demonstrates how the 'screenwriting by numbers' approach that offers templates into which the writer may mechanically drop his or her story idea is fundamentally incomplete.
Put your course online now, without sacrificing pedagogical quality Conquering the Content: A Blueprint for Online Course Design and Development, Second Edition is a highly practical guide to creating online courses. With guidance on incorporating learning theory into online course content, as well as a host of templates, learning guides, and sample files, this book furnishes instructors and instructional designers with the information and tools they need to design and develop their course content to better serve online students. This second edition introduces relevance statements and time-saving tips as well as content maps which provide a scaffold for content organization and help students anchor the topics in their memories for retrieval. Readers will gain expert insight and best practices for designing within the rapidly changing online learning environment and learn to incorporate recent advances that can improve student outcomes. Because the book is designed to focus on online teaching pedagogy, it won't go out of date as specific tools change. Nearly one-third of all students in higher education are taking at least one online class, and online hybrid classes are becoming more widespread. Distance learning is becoming the norm, but creating an online class is more complex than just posting course content on a website. Conquering the Content demonstrates how instructors can best revamp their course content to suit the online learning environment, and provides the tools and resources instructors need to transfer their effectiveness from the classroom to the online environment. Learn how to: * Create student-friendly navigation structures that support what is known about the brain and learning * Organize content based on priority, flow, and easy navigation * Create assessments that work within the parameters of an online course * 'Chunk' information to facilitate better processing Time is of the essence in getting a course online, but it's important that pedagogy not get lost in the crush of new content. Course design is just as critical as course content when it comes to distance learning outcomes, and Conquering the Content provides a holistic and practical approach to effective online course development.
When a teacher retires an entire storehouse of knowledge is often lost. Now a retired educator has reproduced her storehouse of knowledge about teacher quality and classroom practices. The ''Journey'' begins at a place called 'Compliance' and ends at a destination named 'Community.' During three 'stops' on the journey, eighteen principles in three core areas critical to teacher quality are examined. The workbook contains proven time-saving worksheets, templates, workshop ideas,one-on-one teacher support materials - all created by an experienced coach. Coaches are equipped to: Harness the beliefs, skills, strengths (assets) of ALL teachers. Integrate their experience, expertise, and wisdom into the tools and templates. Support new, marginal, or veteran teachers. Work to improve teacher longevity (reduce attrition). Use social media to tap into the insights, strategies, and solutions of coaches in other locations. Create their own pilot or inquiry-based project.

I compare, as I go, how the book's structure eases the new data modeler into the subject much like an instructor might ease a beginning swimmer into the pool. This book begins like a Dan Brown novel. It even starts out with the protagonist, our favorite data modeler, lost on a dark road somewhere in France. In this case, what saves him isn't a cipher, but of all things, something that's very much like a data model in the form of a map! The author deems they are both way-finding tools.
