Positive Thinking

Traditionally, the positive thinking philosophy that has permeated Western society advocates that you will achieve whatever you want purely by thinking positive thoughts. On the contrary, at its best, this practice results in success for some individuals, but overall, for the majority it does not! This book will re-define the true meaning of positive thinking for the 21st century and show that there is more to it then we know. The author, Neil Francis, will explain that it is actually our motivating ability that enables us to create new possibilities. It is then up to each individual to decide which opportunities are achievable and realistic and – therefore – worth seizing. Positive Thinking explores the ways of creating new possibilities so that you make the right decisions to live a more balanced, meaningful and contented life Author: Neil Francis Publisher: LID Publishing ISBN: 978-1-912555-15-4 FORMAT: 165 x 115 mm Bookbinding: Hardback Number of pages: 128

The Wellbeing Book

As our lives get busier, boundaries between work and leisure blur and we spend less time thinking about what we're putting out minds, bodies, and souls through. This fast-living is resulting in a pandemic of 'ill-being': from general weariness and 'feeling under the weather', to prolonged bouts of sickness, lethargy and sharp increases in stress, depression, and mental health issues. The Wellbeing Book will demonstrate how we can interact with the world to lead a better life. The author provides 50 practical and uplifting ways to improve physical and mental wellbeing by focusing on the mind, body, and soul. In doing so, he helps us to hit the pause button and learn how to enhance our energy and build resilience, cultivate our emotional and physical wellbeing, manage stress and live a happier and more fulfilled life.

The Business Bullshit Book

If you work in business, the chances are you have fallen under the poisonous spell of business bullshit and jargon. Very few of us seem able to avoid “reaching out”, or “walk the talk”, or “shifting paradigms”, or “think outside the box”. No longer solely the province of management consultants, investors and MBA types, business gobbledygook has mesmerized the rank and file around the globe. Help is at hand with this The Business Bullshit Book, aptly described as “the world’s most comprehensive collection” of the top 2,000 business terms and jargon that have infected us all. Stay sane (and keep your colleagues and customers from suffocating you) from the business bullshit madness by having this dictionary by your side. Based on his wide and extensive experience with business bullshit, Kevin Duncan deciphers the terms and language of modern-day business speak.

Positive Male Mind

Mental health problems affect both men and women, in fact, every one in four of us. However, it has been widely accepted for some time that men are much less likely to seek help from a doctor or mental health specialist, as they traditionally expect themselves to be competitive and successful, tough and self-reliant and can find it difficult to admit that they are feeling fragile and vulnerable. This book aims to build on the current progressive movement by supporting men and those that care about them - be that a partner, friend, family member or colleague - by providing insight, advice, and tips on what can be done at a very practical level to make men's mental health much more positive.

Across the world businesses are searching for ways to work leaner and smarter. Working virtually across countries, time zones, and regions is, in theory, a good way to stay connected and keep travel and accommodation costs down. Businesses must be competent at working virtually in order to thrive and, meeting virtually is today’s reality. Technology companies are getting better and better at supporting meaningful virtual meetings and communication media is galloping ahead with people actively staying connected through social media and yet, at the same time virtual business meetings are hitting a glass ceiling. This book suggests that the human behaviour needed to make the most of these meetings is struggling to keep up. In this book you will learn how to make meetings work for you, how to be present and how to be understood, why you suck at meetings today and what to do about it for tomorrow.

Grace Under Pressure

According to most studies, public speaking is the number one fear among professionals. Most suffer from stage fright, lack of basic vocal training and/or lack of delivery technique. Such individuals seek tips and tricks in books, articles, and blogs, and assume that there's a fast and easy way for appearing eloquent and polished in front of an audience. However, these sources often fail to address the underlying issue of stage fright, and the same habitual responses to nervousness continue to plague the speaker. Grace Under Pressure solves this issue by unveiling three areas of training that great speakers use to develop their skills. In the first section, author Lisa Wentz shares techniques that she has developed to help anyone overcome inner obstacles so they can focus on developing their outward presence. The second section outlines how to best develop the physical aspects of speech, including posture, breathing, resonance, and articulation. And the third section centres on delivery: how to use pauses, word stress, and storytelling, among other techniques, to improve your performance from novice to master. This final section offers acting techniques and directorial advice that can be applied to speeches, pitches, presentations and meeting strategies.

The Strengths Book: Discover How to be Fulfilled in Your Work and in Life

It's human nature to focus more on our weaknesses because we are programmed to be alert to risks in our environment. We end up focusing on what isn't working, often overshadowing all the positives. But what if you focused on and played to your strengths instead? This practical and succinct book aims to revolutionise your life by helping you to identify what exactly makes you happy so that you will make the right choices; decide whether a job, activity or course is right for you; and understand why things seem to flow with some activities and some people, and not others. Knowing these things about yourself, and spending more time on what really  energises and fulfills you - your strengths - will ultimately lead to a happier and more successful life.
