For those who telecommute, work from home, do “brain work,” and those who must continually acquire new skills to keep up with today’s changing workplace, knowing how to self-motivate and self-manage is a requisite for success in the 21st century. Unfortunately, most people have poor self-management skills. In a quest for excellence, some set unattainable standards and fall victim to nitpicking and criticism. Others procrastinate until their anxiety levels are so high that only fear propels them to perform. These methods are not only suboptimal, they’re self-defeating. In this book, Dr. Beverly Potter offers tools and techniques for becoming a better self-manager. Readers learn how to overcome negative thinking and redefine problems as challenges, how to set compelling goals, how to make action plans with “doing” steps, and how to maintain high motivation with self-rewards. Both empowering and informative, Managing Yourself for Excellence helps readers put an end to self-derailment and get back on the track to success.

Through "Managing Yourself, Managing Others: How to Improve Effectiveness, Productivity, and Work Satisfaction," you will learn about SIMA (The System for Motivated Abilities) and how to apply its concepts and techniques to become a more effective manager of people and yourself. You will learn how to: 1. Tap into the heart and soul of your motivation (and that of your employees) to improve job fit, work satisfaction, and performance. 2. Select and engage in work and activity that makes you (and your employees) feel productive and alive--work that provides a sense of meaning, purpose, satisfaction, and fulfillment. 3.
