  • Mission Transition : Navigating The Opportunities And Obstacles To Your Pos


    Mission Transition is an essential career-change guide for any transitioning veteran that wants to avoid false starts and make optimal career choices following active duty.

    Every year, about a quarter of a million veterans leave the military – most of whom are grossly unprepared for the transition. These servicemembers have developed incredible leadership, problem-solving, and practical skills that are underutilized once they reach the civilian world, a detriment to both themselves and society.

    Well-intentioned Transition Assistance Programs and other support structures within the armed forces often leave veterans fending for themselves. And the mission-first culture of the military results in servicemembers focusing on their active duty roles in the year leading up to their separation, leaving them little time to adequately prepare to join the civilian world.

    Mission Transition guides military personnel through the entire process of making a successful move into civilian professional life. This book will:

    *Guide you through the process of discovering what path you want to take going forward
    *Teach you the strategies that will make your resume stand out
    *Provide suggestions to help you prepare for and ace the interview
    *Discuss ways to acclimate to your new organization’s culture and pay it forward to other veterans

    Each chapter includes advice from other veterans, illustrations of key concepts, summaries, and suggested resources.

  • Called To Care Third Edition


    As nursing and healthcare continue to change, we need nurses who are committed both to a solid understanding of their profession and to caring well for patients and their families. Offering a historically and theologically grounded vision of the nurse’s call, this thoroughly revised third edition of a classic text includes practical features for educators, students, and practitioners.

    Nursing is a vocation: a calling from God to care for others. The role of the nurse originally grew out of a holistic Christian understanding of humans as created in the image of God. Yet as nursing and healthcare continue to change, the effects have proven disorienting to many. Now more than ever, we need nurses who are committed both to a solid understanding of their profession and to caring well for patients and their families. For over twenty years, Called to Care has served as a unique and essential resource for nurses. In this third edition Judith Allen Shelly and Arlene B. Miller, now joined by coauthor Kimberly H. Fenstermacher, present a definition for nursing based on a historically and theologically grounded vision of the nurse’s call: Nursing is a ministry of compassionate and restorative care for the whole person, in response to God’s grace, which aims to promote and foster optimum health (shalom) and bring comfort in suffering and death for anyone in need. Focusing on the features of the nursing metaparadigm-person, health, environment, and nursing-they provide a framework for understanding how the Christian faith relates to the many aspects of a nurse’s work, from theory to everyday practice. This new edition of Called to Care is thoroughly revised for today’s nurses, including updated examples and new content on topics such as cultural competency, palliative care, and the current state of healthcare and nursing education. Each chapter features learning objectives, discussion questions, case studies, and theological reflections from Scripture to help readers engage and apply the content. For educators, students, and practitioners throughout the field of nursing, this classic text continues to provide clarity and wisdom for living out their calling.

  • Proximity Principle : The Proven Strategy That Will Lead To A Career You Lo

  • Real Artists Dont Starve


    Bestselling author and creativity expert Jeff Goins dismantles the myth that being creative is a hindrance to success by revealing how an artistic temperament is in fact a competitive advantage in the marketplace. Now in trade paper.

    For centuries, the myth of the starving artist has dominated our culture, seeping into the minds of creative people and stifling their pursuits. But the truth is that the world’s most successful artists did not starve. In fact, they capitalized on the power of their creative strength. In Real Artists Don’t Starve, Jeff Goins debunks the myth of the starving artist by unveiling the ideas that created it and replacing them with timeless strategies for thriving, including:

    steal from your influences (don’t wait for inspiration),
    collaborate with others (working alone is a surefire way to starve),
    take strategic risks (instead of reckless ones),
    make money in order to make more art (it’s not selling out), and
    apprentice under a master (a “lone genius” can never reach full potential).
    Through inspiring anecdotes of successful creatives both past and present, Goins shows that living by these rules is not only doable but it’s also a fulfilling way to thrive.

    From graphic designers and writers to artists and business professionals, creatives already know that no one is born an artist. Goins’s revolutionary rules celebrate the process of becoming an artist, a person who utilizes the imagination in fundamental ways. He reminds creatives that business and art are not mutually exclusive pursuits. In fact, success in business and in life flow from a healthy exercise of creativity.

    Expanding upon the groundbreaking work in his previous bestseller The Art of Work, Goins explores the tension every creative person and organization faces in an effort to blend the inspired life with a practical path to success. Being creative isn’t a disadvantage for success; rather, it is a powerful tool to be harnessed.

  • Power Of Character In Leadership


    How to Protect Your Leadership Influence and Power

    You’ve worked hard to achieve your dreams and goals. Many others have done the same-only to lose it all in the end. Every day, we read about successful people in various walks of life who have lost their power and influence. They’ve been fired, forced to resign, or shamed out of public life. They no longer have a market for their gifts, and they may even face criminal proceedings. These leaders have lost the trust of their companies, constituents, nations, followers, and families. Many were surprised to discover that their talents alone were not enough to prevent their downfall.

    Why did they fail in the end? Because they lacked the one quality that would have protected their leadership and given them enduring influence. Ironically, this quality is seldom taught to leaders today, either formally or informally. It is the quality of moral force, or character.

    Every human being is a leader over some domain as he or she exercises gifts and influence. That domain might be the halls of government, the boardroom, the classroom, the community, or the home. In The Power of Character in Leadership: How Values, Morals, Ethics, and Principles Affect Leaders, you will discover what character is, what it means to develop moral force, and how to preserve your leadership influence so that it is both effective and enduring.

  • Calling In Todays World


    Comparative religious insights into the meaning of vocation

    The concept of “vocation” or “calling” is a distinctively Christian concern, grounded in the long-held belief that we find our meaning, purpose, and fulfillment in God. But what about religions other than Christianity? What does it mean for someone from another faith tradition to understand calling or vocation?

    In this book contributors with expertise in Catholic and Protestant Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism and Daoism, and secular humanism explore the idea of calling in these various faith traditions. The contributors each search their respective tradition’s sacred texts, key figures, practices, and concepts for wisdom on the meaning of vocation. By seeking comparative insights from diverse faith traditions, say Kathleen Cahalan and Douglas Schuurman, we can all increase and improve our efforts to build a better, more humane world.

  • Jeffrey Gitomers Little Red Book Of Sales Answers


    Salespeople are looking for answers. The fastest, easiest answers that work every time. The good news is, the answers exist. The bad news is, in order to be able to become a successful salesperson, you have to understand, practice, and master the answers.

    You would think with all the answers contained in this book, that anyone who reads it would automatically become a better salesperson. You would be thinking wrong.

    To become a better salesperson, the first thing you have to do is read it. The second thing to do with this book is read it again. The third thing to do with this book is try one answer every day. If it does not work exactly right the first time, or the outcome was not what you expected, try it again and tweak it a little bit. The fourth thing you have to do is practice the answer until you feel that it is working. The fifth thing you have to do is become the master of it.

    SECRET: Blend each answer to your selling situation and do it in a way that fits your style, and your personality.

    Think about the way you ask for an appointment. The way you leave a voice-mail message. The way you follow up after a sales call. The way you begin a sales presentation. The way you ask for a sale. The way you respond to an angry customer. The way you earn a referral. Or the way you get a testimonial. Wouldn’t you love to have the perfect answer for every one of these situations?

  • Pastor : The Theology And Practice Of Ordained Ministry


    Ordained ministry, says Willimon, is a gift of God to the church–but that doesn’t mean that it is easy. Always a difficult vocation, changes in society and the church in recent years have made the ordained life all the more complex and challenging. Is the pastor primarily a preacher, a professional caregiver, an administrator? Given the call of all Christians to be ministers to the world, what is the distinctive ministry of the ordained? When does one’s ministry take on the character of prophet, and when does it become that of priest? What are the special ethical obligations and disciplines of the ordained? In this book, Willimon explores these and other central questions about the vocation of ordained ministry. He begins with a discussion of who pastors are, asking about the theological underpinnings of ordained ministry, and then moves on to what pastors do, looking at the distinctive roles the pastor must fulfill. The book also draws on great teachers of the Christian tradition to demonstrate that, while much about Christian ministry has changed, its core concerns–preaching the word, the care of souls, the sacramental life of congregations–remains the same. Ordained ministry is a vocation to which we are called, not a profession that we choose. To answer that call is to open oneself to heartache and sometimes hardship; yet, given the one who calls, it is to make oneself available to deep and profound joy as well.

  • Consider Your Calling


    What on earth is God doing? Who are you? What is your stage of life? What are your circumstances? What is the cross you will have to bear? What are you afraid of? We ask these six critical questions?and then we ask them again?at points of transition in our lives. They all lead us to the one core question: What is the good work to which I am called? Gordon T. Smith, author of Courage and Calling, writes: “It is a good question because our work matters to us, to others and, of course, it matters to God. Work itself is good. It is vital to our human identity; and we are most ourselves, most who God calls us to be, living in what it means to know the salvation of God, when we know the grace of work well done.” However, Smith acknowledges that this is not a simple question to answer in the midst of our very complicated lives. That’s why he has written this brief and accessible book?to offer the support and insight we need as we ponder these six core questions in community with God and others. As a steward of your life, in attentiveness to the calling of God, how is God inviting you to engage the world?

    “Grant, Lord, that I may know myself that I may know thee.” -Augustine

    Much is said in Christian circles about knowing God. But Christians throughout the ages have agreed that there cannot be deep knowledge of God without deep knowledge of the self. Discerning your true self is inextricably related to discerning God’s purposes for you. Paradoxically, the more you become like Christ, the more you become authentically yourself.

    In this profound exploration of Christian identity, psychologist and spiritual director David G. Benner illuminates the spirituality of self-discovery. He exposes the false selves that you may hide behind and calls you to discover the true self that emerges from your uniqueness in Christ. Freeing you from illusions about yourself, Benner shows that self-understanding leads to the fulfillment of your God-given destiny and vocation.

    Rest assured, you need not try to be someone you are not. But you will deepen your experience of God through discovering the gift of being yourself.

    This expanded edition, one of three titles in The Spiritual Journey trilogy, includes a new epilogue and an experiential guide with questions for individual reflection or group discussion.

  • Forward


    Forward leaders are missing in action.

    Where are they today? Leaders in the future must rise and lead people forward. They have to lead so high above the fray they will not stoop to littleness in their thinking and conduct. They have to lead so big, they will not settle for just leading a few. They have to lead so deep; they will not be tossed and turned as they ride the tumultuous waters of leadership. Author Ronnie Floyd is calling for a different kind of leader to rise up for the future.

    Forward is about seven distinguishing marks for future leaders. Who are these future leaders? Anyone who leads anything in the future.

    Forward is a call. Forward is a process. Forward is a direction. Forward is a change.

  • Christian Writers Guide To The Book Proposal


    A complete proposal sells your book, pure and simple. But some authors don’t think a proposal is necessary. Perhaps you already have a contract, or you plan to self-publish. If you don’t have to sell the book to a publisher, why write a proposal? That reasoning sounds logical, but there are purposes for a book proposal beyond selling it to a publisher. In A Christian Writer’s Guide to the Book Proposal, I share six reasons why it benefits you to write a book proposal and seven items that should be part of every book proposal. A Christian Writer’s Guide to the Book Proposal is based on my previously published writing and on my teaching at Christian writers’ conferences around the country. The material included applies to writers and book projects of all sorts: fiction and nonfiction; completed manuscripts and unwritten book ideas, first-time and previously published authors, traditionally published, indie, and self-published. So, give your book idea a chance for success. Learn how with A Christian Writer’s Guide to the Book Proposal.

  • Leverage : High Leverage Activities Faster Result


    Leverage literally means “using something to gain the maximum advantage.” Because life moves so fast, most people end up getting mired down in tactical activities and don’t take the time to balance tactical with strategic to get the greatest benefit of both. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a formula for getting the most leverage out of your career to get the right results faster? In his powerful new book, best-selling author Tony Jeary, hits the mark again by diving deeper into his breakthrough concept of HLAs (High Leverage Activities) that was introduced in his best selling book, Strategic Acceleration, and was devised from decades of studying and honing the best practices of working with the world’s top CEOs and most successful people. HLAs are those things that if you do them consistently will have the biggest impact on getting the results you want. By leveraging those things and minimizing or eliminating other non-critical things that take up time but have little or no value, you can maximize your time spent with less energy and effort in the process. This means getting more done with less. It means getting more accomplished faster. It means achieving goals in reduced time. It means creating a competitive advantage from the way you think. The foundation of this book is rooted in the idea that success is a results contest and that achieving superior results is based on both eliminating the distractions that plague us daily and learning how to identify and focus on the things that really matter. If you’re ready to change your thinking, let LEVERAGE help you identify your HLAs so you can discover a whole new world of opportunity and success both personally and professionally.

  • Failing Forward : Turning Mistakes Into Stepping Stones For Success


    Are some people born to achieve anything they want while others struggle? Call them lucky, blessed, or possessors of the Midas touch. What is the real reason for their success? Is it family background, wealth, greater opportunities, high morals, an easy childhood?
    John Maxwell has the answer—the difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure.

    Most people are never prepared to deal with failure. Maxwell says that if you are like him, coming out of school, you feared it, misunderstood it, and ran away from it. But Maxwell learned to make failure his friend, and he can teach you to do the same.

    “I want to help you learn how to confidently look the prospect of failure in the eye and move forward anyway,” says Maxwell. “Because in life, the question is not if you will have problems, but how you are going to deal with them. Stop failing backward and start failing forward!”

  • Balancing Work And Life


    Life is more like a marathon than a sprint. Here’s how to stay well conditioned.

    Bill Butterworth will make you laugh-and learn while you’re doing it! In the opening chapter of this powerful little book, Bill shares with you how, while running his rotund body in a nightmarish 440-yard dash, he learned a great lesson:
    Life is much more like a marathon than a sprint.

    The attitudes and actions that result in steady success over the long haul are what make for long-term satisfaction and achievement. To experience this for yourself, you need to understand how to deal with life’s inevitable challenges:
    *The “Hazies”-losing sight of long-term goals
    *The “Lazies”-lacking the self-discipline to bring life back into focus
    *The “Crazies”-allowing life to run out of control

    Each of these can be conquered by three “clarifying triangles:” setting clear priorities, learning the discipline of endurance, and reaching the finish line through skillful pacing. It all adds up to a succinct and inspiring guide to balancing excellence at work with fulfillment in all of life.
