Description : Who cares about a person’s attitude? As long as someone can do the job, you shouldn’t worry too much about it, right? If John Maxwell believed that, you wouldn’t have Attitude 101 in your hands right now. As America’s leadership expert, Dr. Maxwell has devoted his life to helping people become more successful. His books and seminars teach that anyone can be a REAL success if they master skills in four areas: Relationships, Equipping, Attitude, and Leadership. This book is designed to give you the essentials of attitude. People’s lives are so hectic. Their time is valuable, and yet, they are also on information overload. More new information has been produced in the last thirty years than in the previous five thousand. A weekday edition of the New York Times contains more information than average people in seventeenth-century England were likely to come across in their lifetime. The amount of information available in the world has doubled in the last five years, and it will keep doubling. So this book, a companion to Leadership 101, Relationships 101 (available January 2004), and Equipping 101 (available January 2004), is the short course on attitude. Dr. Maxwell recognizes that as an individual, your attitude has a profound impact on your life. As a leader, you cannot ignore the attitudes of the people you lead and expect to achieve success—whether you’re leading a business, a family, a sports team, or a group of volunteers. A person’s attitude impacts their relationships, colors their view of failure, and defines their approach to success. Attitude can make or break you.

Description : Dr. Pandora B. Angel was a practicing physician for thirty years. She spent twenty-three of those years as an emergency physician at a university medical center and an affiliated hospital. In Elusive Equity, Empathy, and Empowerment, she shares the challenges she faced as a female emergency physician in what is still perceived as a male profession. Addressing the gender bias and inequality she experienced while striving for and achieving a career in medicine, this memoir addresses workforce power and control, double standards, gender bias, discrimination, the boys’ club, harassment, contrived narratives for predetermined goals, retaliation, disregard for objective data, and misconceptions. Through thoughtful vignettes, lessons, and appendices, this memoir explores the persistent culture of inequity in the workplace from Angel’s perspective as a female physician in a male-dominated field. Teaching tools and lessons are provided at the end of each chapter to stimulate wider discussions of inequality, harassment, bias, and discrimination that still occur.
Description : Are You Tired of Struggling to Get People to Listen to You and Follow You? Then Keep Reading Below to Learn How to Become a Successful Leader Many people are led to believe that you are either born a leader and have the skills or that you don't. Imagine this scenario, you have recently received a promotion at your job and have been given much more responsibility. Leading people happens to be a larger one of these responsibilities. So you go about your job assuming you have all the skills necessary to create a great working environment for a team and what happens?

This can easily happen even when you are more than qualified to be in a leadership position if you don't fully understand what it takes to be a successful leader. Consequently, if you don't lead correctly people will resent you, things will run inefficiently, unorganized, and ultimately you won't reach your goals.
