Why Great Leaders Don't Take Yes for an Answer: Managing for Conflict and Consensus (2nd Edition)

Why Great Leaders Don’t Take Yes for an Answer: Managing for Conflict and Consensus (2nd Edition)

Michael A. Roberto/p>

Price: FREE

Make better decisions! Michael A. Roberto will help you achieve deeper consensus, get past groupthink and “yes men,” and achieve superior results in every decision you make — especially your most complex and highest-stakes decisions! Roberto’s Why Great Leaders Don’t Take Yes for an Answer, Second Edition gives you a powerful framework for promoting honest, constructive dissent and skepticism; test your assumptions; more thoroughly and fairly considering “best alternatives”; crisply coming to closure; and aligning your entire organization behind the decision you make.

In this new edition, Roberto presents new cases from Google, Ford, and Intuit, and expands coverage to more deeply illuminate his decision-making approach. Offering both positive and negative examples, he presents a well rounded view of how to determine when ‘yes’ means ‘yes’, when it doesn’t, and what to do when it doesn’t. Throughout, Roberto demonstrates why “good process entails the astute management of the social, political and emotional aspects of decision making” — in other words, why effective leaders are well served by carefully “deciding how to decide.” You’ll learn how to:

Test and probe what your team really believes, and get the truth and candor you really need
Encourage constructive objections — and keep them constructive
Improve team management, mitigate risk, identify opportunities, and promote integrity
Build stronger commitment amongst the people who’ll implement your decisions

Sifted: God's Scandalous Response to Satan's Outrageous Demand

Sifted: God’s Scandalous Response to Satan’s Outrageous Demand

Rick Lawrence

Price: FREE

This helps us to explain the question “why” even though during the process we can’t always see the benefits of what things happen to us but this book helps the reader weather the time that passes and enables them to help others through life’s “sifting” process of their own. I rate this book a 5 out of 5 stars and think everyone should have a copy in their home.

Pirate2240

Discouraged by life’s difficulties—both life-shifting catastrophes and the drip-drip-drip of daily trouble? Dissatisfied with the same old pat answers about God’s role in our hard times? Rick Lawrence offers fresh biblical perspective based on a single Scripture snapshot in Luke 22:31-32. Jesus tells Peter he’s about to be “sifted like wheat”—shaken hard, beaten, and agitated until he practically falls apart. Satan’s going to do it. And Jesus is going to allow it, in the interest of showing Peter who he really is. Lawrence uses the simple agrarian metaphor of sifting as a jumping-off point for a rigorously honest, deeply challenging, yet powerfully comforting exploration of the trials that beat us down, the good God who allows our troubles, and the incredible beauty the process of sifting can reveal in us.

A Higher Calling: Homeschooling High School for Harried Husbands (Coffee Break Books)

Matt Binz

Price: FREE

With a great deal of humor & honesty, this book provides some wonderful advice on a variety of things that homeschoolers face: from aggravating questions from others, being a help to the parent doing the bulk of the teaching, getting the kids ready for college & beyond and so much more. I especially liked the chart about “what she said, what she meant & what she did not mean.” Honestly, that chart should be issued to every man on their wedding day.

For Men Only! (Sort of)

Matt Binz, Mr. HomeScholar, has just the ticket to encourage homeschool dads.

He knocks down arguments made by waffling dads and pushes them straight ahead as full partners in homeschool success.
>>> Read this book to:

explore the benefits of homeschooling as compared to other educational options,
understand the mutually supporting roles of husbands and wives in the homeschooling trenches,
discover the big homeschooling payoff through college admission, scholarships and lifelong family relationships.

˃˃˃ Here’s Why You Need This Book:
If your husband is just as likely to reach for a homeschooling book as he is to be caught watching “The Bachelorette,” buy him this book and sit back to reap the benefits! A more committed and excited homeschool partner is just a short read away.

“A Higher Calling” is part of The HomeScholar’s Coffee Break Book series. Designed especially for parents who don’t want to spend hours and hours reading a 400-page book on homeschooling high school, each book combines Lee’s practical and friendly approach with detailed, but easy-to-digest information, perfect to read over a cup of coffee at your favorite coffee shop!

Never overwhelming, always accessible and manageable, each book in the series will give parents the tools they need to tackle the tasks of homeschooling high school, one warm sip at a time.
˃˃˃ Who is Matt Binz and Why Should You Listen to Him?

Matt Binz’s sole claim to brilliance is he was smart enough to marry Lee. Lee Binz, The HomeScholar, understands what it takes to graduate homeschool students who are fully prepared for college and for life. Lee’s practical advice and organized presentations have helped thousands of homeschool parents muster the courage to complete their homeschooling journey. She is both reassuring and empowering, and will give you the knowledge you need to successfully graduate your high school student, and have confidence that they are ready to take on the world.

God Has a Plan for Your Life: The Discovery that Makes All the Difference

Charles F. Stanley

Charles Stanley doesn’t write like a “preacher”. He writes like someone who has been there and knows from firsthand experience. I have loved every book. He writes with such love and concern. He knows God intimately and teaches us how to have a deeper relationship with God, Our Father.

Linda

While you may not understand all the twists and turns of life, you can be sure of one thing: the same God who created you, loves you. God’s personal promise to you is one of extreme hope and potential (Jeremiah 29:11). He also has an awesome strategy for your future. No matter what failure you have experienced in the past, you can learn how to make right choices at every juncture in your life.

In God Has A Plan for Your Life, Dr. Charles Stanley explains that there is no such thing as coincidence, luck, or good fortune. God is sovereign, and He has a course that He wants you to follow. He opens and closes exciting doors of opportunity, but it is up to you to step through each one by faith. You don’t have to miss another exciting moment. You can live each day with a sense of hope and assurance that whatever comes your way has passed through God’s omnipotent, loving hands. This book outlines the exact steps that will lead you to discover His plan for your life.

Outlive Your Life: You Were Made to Make A Difference

Max Lucado

Price: $2.99

When you die, will what you have done in life outlive you? Are the things you are doing in life right now going to make a difference when you are gone? If you want to make a difference in life, even if it is just in the life of a single person then the newest book by Max Lucado, Out Live Your Life You Were Made To Make A Difference is the book that you will want to read.

EricLDickey

Dear Friend,

May I share a story that is very dear to my heart?

It’s a story of hillbillies and simple folk, net casters and tax collectors. A story of a movement that exploded like a just-opened fire hydrant out of Jerusalem and spilled into the ends of the earth: into the streets of Paris, the districts of Rome, and the ports of Athens, Istanbul, Shanghai, and Buenos Aires. A story so mighty, controversial, head spinning, and life changing that two millennia later we wonder:

Might it happen again?

Heaven knows we hope so. These are devastating times: 1.75 billions people are desperately poor; one billion are hungry. Lonely hearts indwell our neighborhoods and attend our schools. In the midst of it all, here we stand: you, me, and our one-of-a-kind lives. We are given a choice … an opportunity to make a big difference during a difficult time. What if we did? What if we rocked the world with hope?

Worth a try, don’t you think?

– Max Lucado

One hundred percent of the author’s royalties from Outlive Your Life products will benefit children and families through World Vision and other ministries of faith-based compassion.
