Sustainable Innovation Book Excerpt:

Many of us wish we could design inventions and make decisions that were optimal and sustainable, but we do not know how to begin the approach. This book offers a guide to dramatically improve the quality of innovation and solution-making through the respectful use of existing and abundant, but often-ignored, resources. Sustainable innovation is about creative combination of ideas, materials, methods, and people, courage to derive value from opposition and diversity, integrative intelligence, virtuous planning, minimal consumption of resources, and definition of alternative plans. Using the method successfully requires that we are truly interested in the common good of humankind, that we care about our environment, and that we take time to think carefully about consequences before we act, invent, or make decisions. It is a call for a much-needed collaboration between people of different backgrounds, skills, and opinions with the intent to preserve individual and local integrity and adopt a win-win mindset. Try it, and partake in its positive and long-lasting effects! Key Features - Description of sustainable innovation and the untapped innovation potential - Sustainable innovation requirements - Sustainable innovation attitudes - Step-by-step guide to sustainable innovation - Application to 21st century challenges - A global win-win scenario Table of Contents: Innovation Attitudes / Inspiration from the Natural and Behavioral Sciences / Untapped Sustainable Innovation Potential / Step-by-Step Guide to Sustainable Innovation / Notes on the Application to 21st century challenges/ Personal Step-by-Step Work Section / Looking to the Future

Out of the Comfort Zone Book Excerpt:

Success in careers outside the university setting depends on an individual's capacity to master professional skills and respond appropriately to dynamic situations with flexibility, adaptation, and innovative thinking. This book describes a simple, common sense method of how to include professional skills training in any curricula without compromising academic rigor. It relies on introduction of unanticipated yet manageable crises simulating scenarios commonly experienced in the workplace. The method promises to inspire both students and their teachers to conquer new territory outside their comfort zones. Examples include how to respond to a demand for innovation and teamwork, a lay-off, a re-organization, or switching jobs and projects. These situations are bound to occur for most people and in most jobs they often create stress and, perhaps, despair. Preparing and practicing a mindful and healthy response is beneficial, and now this process can be performed in the classroom, while it serves as a platform for character building prior to unexpected real-life events. Key Features: - Description of the importance of, incentives for, and rewards of exiting the comfort zone - Principles for teaching and learning professional skills - Student anecdotes and reflection - Rubric entries and assessment of learning Table of Contents: The Comfort Zone and “Being out of It” / Exiting the Comfort Zone: Reasons and Impact / Getting Educators and Students out of the Comfort Zone / Principles of “Out-of-the-Comfort-Zone” (OOC) Teaching / Anecdotes of OOC Learning / Measuring the Outcome

Everyone Is A Supermodel Secrets For Any Career Based On My Modelling Experiences Book Excerpt:

A woman’s – or man’s – total package isn’t only about what you look like. Keli Lenfi゙eld learned this lesson firsthand when her Paris modelling agent placed her on an unhealthy diet of orange juice and water. Since then, she has fought to make “diet” a naughty word in her vocabulary and yours. “For whatever reason, we all have something about ourselves we don't like. I figure this is one of the cons of being part of the human race,” she writes in her first book, Everyone Is A Supermodel: Secrets For Any Career Based On My Modelling Experiences. “How we were born gets painted, prodded, wax, buffed and injected to either look like someone else or believe we will be happier when we look in the mirror.” But there is more to making it in life than a body confidence pep talk. You need to impress a potential boss, prepare a positive social media image, craft an impeccable resume and nail a job interview. Invited to an impromptu event where you’ll network further? You need to be ready for that too. Readers can count on additional advice from successful industry professionals, such as Marie Claire Australia’s national advertising manager Anne-Marie Clarke, popular turntable goddess DJ Dakota and London-based PR executive Nicole Crowley.
