Skills and experience might land you a leadership position, but they don’t make you a true leader. Leadership comes from inside—and the greatest leaders first question themselves before they tackle the world around them. To aid in this critical interrogation, The Ten Golden Rules of Leadership explores ideas from Aristotle, Heraclitus, Sophocles, Hesiod, and other great thinkers, including: Know thyself • Do not waste energy on things you cannot change • Nurture community • Always embrace the truth • Let competition reveal talent • Live life by a higher code • Understand that character is destiny Then it shows you how to take each idea—along with what you’ve learned about yourself—and apply it to the challenges of the modern workplace. As Aristotle tutored Alexander the Great, you too will learn what it takes to conquer all.

This book focuses on systems analysis, broadly defined to also include problem formulation and interpretation of proposed alternatives in terms of the value systems of stakeholders. Therefore, the book is a complement, not a substitute to other books when teaching systems engineering and systems analysis. The nature of problem solving discussed in this book is appropriate to a wide range of systems analyses. Thus the book can be used as a stand-alone book for teaching the analysis of systems. Also unique is the inclusion of broad case studies to stress problem solving issues, making How to Do Systems Analysis a complement to the many fine works in systems engineering available today.

As you’ll discover, the RDC philosophy is centered on business ethics and a principled approach to negotiation that maximizes the value of the outcomes for both parties. It can even create additional value that neither party could find in isolation. In this book, you will learn: The ten golden rules for successful negotiations How to handle conflicts with your negotiating partners What hostage and kidnapping negotiations can teach managers negotiating in business settings How to ensure both sides perceive any agreement as a "win" Achieve higher-profit deals in difficult circumstances In the business world, negotiating with other companies, government officials, and even your colleagues is a fact of life. Advanced Negotiation Techniques takes you through a system for planning and conducting negotiations that will enable you and your team to achieve your negotiation objectives. This is an internationally tried and tested process, with many current Blue Chip organizations applying it daily for a simple reason: the techniques are easy to implement and they work.

Learn how to answer God’s call to action with this “wonderful, inspirational book that reinforces how one simple gesture, one small act of kindness, can make an enormous difference” (Laura Schroff, New York Times bestselling author of An Invisible Thread). FINDING YOUR WAY BACK TO FAITH Do you sometimes feel as if your faith has gone flat? Does your spiritual life feel listless and boring? Perhaps you’ve unconsciously drifted toward what Clare De Graaf calls beige Christianity. You go to church, attend a Bible study, and even volunteer, but there’s no spark anymore—no joy in your spiritual walk. You may not understand what is happening to your faith, but you do know that you long for something more. If you want to break out of this spiritual gerbil cage and begin living the adventure Jesus intends for you, the place to begin again is living by The 10-Second Rule: Just do the next thing you’re reasonably certain Jesus wants you to do (and do it within the next ten seconds before you change your mind!). The Rule is like a spiritual defibrillator! Just a few chapters in, you’ll begin to experience the excitement of making yourself available to God 24-7, and impacting the lives of everyone around you, even total strangers. All over the world, Christians just like you are returning to the simple faith of Jesus and living by the 10-Second Rule. In living by the Rule, you’ll rediscover the revolutionary power of simple obedience as Jesus taught it, the early church lived it, and before religious Christianity tamed it. Finally, a rule you’ll love keeping!

The modern world can be a hectic, confused place. Every day we are bombarded with disparate, discordant messages about what's right and what's wrong, where we should go, what we should have, and who we should trust. But what if there was a simple way to find harmony amid the discord? What if there was a way to find guidance and direction that could help all of us make the world a better place? In The Power of 1(0), author Denise Alexander Pyle invites us to consider the power and the promise of living by the Ten Commandments and the Golden Rulethe ten and the oneas we journey through life. Each chapter discusses and expands on one of the Ten Commandments, including a reference to the corresponding ten spheres or components on the kabbalistic tree of life. The kabbalah is an ancient mystical belief system and teaching that emanated from Judaism and reveals how the universe and our lives work. While many believe that it is the basis for Jesus's teachings in the New Testament, no matter your religious or spiritual background, The Power of 1(0) offers a pluralistic, universal message that can encourage you to pursue your true purpose and attain true joy. Whether you worship God, Allah, the Source, the Creator, the Universe, or the Force, we are all on this journey here together. May the Ten Commandments and the Golden Rule be our guide in reaching for this unity together, all as one. The Power of 1(0) was chosen as one of the Spirited Woman top 12 book pick lists on
