Books Description:

The Groundbreaking Strengths Assessment from the Leader of the Strengths Revolution In the years since the publication of First, Break All the Rules and Now, Discover Your Strengths, millions have come to the simple but powerful realization that to get the most out of people, you must build on their strengths. And yet, as Marcus Buckingham astutely points out, though the strengths-based approach is now conventional wisdom, the tools and systems inside organizations—performance appraisals, training programs, and succession planning systems—remain stubbornly remedial and exclusively focused on measuring skills, finding gaps, and attempting to plug them. It’s a crisis for individuals and organizations, with management ideas and everyday practice utterly out of sync. That’s about to change. StandOut 2.0 is a revolutionary book and tool that enables you to identify your strengths, and those of your team, and act on them. The original edition of StandOut provided top-notch insights from one of the world’s foremost authorities on strengths, as well as access to a powerful, cutting-edge online assessment tool. StandOut 2.0 also includes the assessment and a robust report on your most dominant strengths. The report is easily exported so you can use it to present the very best of yourself to your team and your company. StandOut 2.0 is your indispensable guide for building on your strengths to further your career—and help your team and organization win.

Books Description:

Author Malcolm Gladwell explores the idea of ideas and how they catch fire in his novel, The Tipping Point. He contests that thoughts and ideas spread in much the same way illness spreads, usually to much better effect: a little exposure goes a long way. He presents the spread of ideas as a sort of epidemic, and perhaps his novel is proof of that. Since its release in 2002, The Tipping Point has become a national bestseller. This edition includes a new afterword by the author. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 10.0px 0.0px; text-align: justify; font: 11.0px 'Trebuchet MS'; color: #000000; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000} span.s1 {font-kerning: none} How do ideas go from horribly unpopular to the latest trend so quickly? Malcolm Gladwell dives into the subjects of fashion, children's shows and even cigarettes in a search for the answer. It's a book that will stop and make you think about how these ideas apply within the context of daily life, marketing, and a whole host of other subjects. Gladwell leads us on a sociological expedition into the mentality and behavior that drives societal trends. Sociology students and readers just looking for a good book-and basically anyone in between- will find The Tipping Point highly enjoyable. It is peppered with anecdotes that carry along the scientific ideas quite nicely, making for a quick and interesting read. Gladwell's insight in The Tipping Point has been used in marketing and advertising strategies by many companies, but it's written in just such a way that keeps the content from even approaching dryness. If you enjoy science but hate the feeling of chewing through a research paper, The Tipping Point is absolutely the book for you.

Books Description:

An illustrated adaptation of the long-running bestseller How Full Is Your Bucket? (more than 400,000 copies sold) for kids — told through the story of a boy who learns a valuable “bucket filling” metaphor and watches it come to life as the day unfolds. Every moment matters. Each of us has an invisible bucket. When our bucket is full, we feel great. When it’s empty, we feel awful. Yet most children (and many adults) don’t realize the importance of having a full bucket throughout the day. In How Full Is Your Bucket? For Kids, Felix begins to see how every interaction in a day either fills or empties his bucket. Felix then realizes that everything he says or does to other people fills or empties their buckets as well. Follow along with Felix as he learns how easy it can be to fill the buckets of his classmates, teachers and family members. Before the day is over, you’ll see how Felix learns to be a great bucket filler, and in the process, discovers that filling someone else’s bucket also fills his own.

If the viral Buzzfeed-style personality quizzes are any indication, we are collectively obsessed with the idea of defining and knowing ourselves and our unique place in the world.

She explains to readers the life-changing insights that can be gained from each and shares specific, practical real-life applications across all facets of life, including love and marriage, productivity, parenting, the workplace, and spiritual life. In her friendly, relatable style, Bogel shares engaging personal stories that show firsthand how understanding personality can revolutionize the way we live, love, work, and pray.
