The Mindset Of Success Book Excerpt:

In this book, you’ll learn how a simple belief about yourself—a belief we discovered in our research—guides a large part of your life. In fact, it permeates every part of your life. Much of what you think of as your personality actually grows out of this “mindset.” Much of what may be preventing you from fulfilling your potential grows out of it. No book has ever explained this mindset and shown people how to make use of it in their lives. You’ll suddenly understand the greats—in the sciences and arts, in sports, and in business—and the would-have-beens. You’ll understand your mate, your boss, your friends, your kids. You’ll see how to unleash your potential—and your children’s. It is my privilege to share my findings with you. Besides accounts of people from my research, I’ve filled each chapter with stories both ripped from the headlines and based on my own life and experience, so you can see the mindsets in action. (In most cases, names and personal information have been changed to preserve anonymity; in some cases, several people have been condensed into one to make a clearer point. A number of the exchanges are re-created from memory, and I have rendered them to the best of my ability.)

Mindset Book Excerpt:

The updated edition of the bestselling book that has changed millions of lives with its insights into the growth mindset “Through clever research studies and engaging writing, Dweck illuminates how our beliefs about our capabilities exert tremendous influence on how we learn and which paths we take in life.”—Bill Gates, GatesNotes After decades of research, world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D., discovered a simple but groundbreaking idea: the power of mindset. In this brilliant book, she shows how success in school, work, sports, the arts, and almost every area of human endeavor can be dramatically influenced by how we think about our talents and abilities. People with a fixed mindset—those who believe that abilities are fixed—are less likely to flourish than those with a growth mindset—those who believe that abilities can be developed. Mindset reveals how great parents, teachers, managers, and athletes can put this idea to use to foster outstanding accomplishment. In this edition, Dweck offers new insights into her now famous and broadly embraced concept. She introduces a phenomenon she calls false growth mindset and guides people toward adopting a deeper, truer growth mindset. She also expands the mindset concept beyond the individual, applying it to the cultures of groups and organizations. With the right mindset, you can motivate those you lead, teach, and love—to transform their lives and your own.

The Playmaker s Advantage Book Excerpt:

Discover the next frontier in sports training—improving your mental game, no matter your age or experience—and how to become the Playmaker, both in your professional and personal life. Coaches search for it. Parents dream of it. Fans love it. Athletes want it. The playmaker on any sports team possesses it: an elusive, intangible quality combining anticipation, perception, and decision-making skills. This quality raises their game above the competition and allows them to pass when no one else can, anticipate the movement of opponents, avoid costly mental mistakes, and ultimately, hold the team together. Now, for the first time, cognitive science research is revealing the secrets of the playmaker’s keen sense of awareness. Just as tests of speed, strength, and agility have provided a baseline of physiological biomarkers, coaches can now capture cognitive metrics including attention, pattern recognition, anticipation, and the ability to take quick, decisive action during the chaos of competition. The Playmaker’s Advantage is a groundbreaking book that will educate athletes of all ages about this essential creative capability in an accessible, easy to understand method.

It’s time to ditch the self-limiting beliefs that hold you back from reaching your full potential! Do you ever feel like you’re just not good enough, smart enough, or talented enough in certain areas? Do these beliefs keep you from seeking out new opportunities or challenges, because you’re afraid of failing? If so, you may be suffering from a “fixed mindset.” In contrast, a “growth mindset” is the belief that you can increase your ability or develop your attributes—that you can adapt and learn from your mistakes. But how do you cultivate a growth mindset? The Growth Mindset Workbook offers essential skills grounded in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to change the way you think about your own talents and abilities. Based on the core principles outlined in Mindset by Carol Dweck, this workbook will help you shed unhelpful and self-limiting attitudes and beliefs, and replace them with a growth mindset that can increase resiliency, boost self-confidence, and form the foundation of a meaningful, values-based life. The most important thing to remember is that a growth mindset can be learned, and doing so can positively impact how you think, feel and act. If you’re ready to say yes to life’s challenges and maximize your potential, this step-by-step guide can show you the way.

The Transformational Coach Book Excerpt:

"If you truly want to make a difference in the lives of others, this is a must-read. Greg Winkler's message to help us combat our youth sport participation crisis and our parent crisis is spot on." –Geoff VanDeusen, Director of Operations & Events, United Soccer Coaches "Greg Winkler's book is a great roadmap for coaches striving to be influential. His Transformational Coaching method will shift your entire paradigm regarding coaching. It will drive you to become a more mindful coach, thereby creating stronger players, teams, and families." –Teresa Palmer, Kagen School Trainer, Girls on the Run Coach, and Life Skills teacher at FSW Collegiate High School American youth athletes are abandoning athletics at an alarming rate, with 70% of children dropping out of youth sport programs by the age of 14. One of the top reasons for this dropout rate is poor coaching, yet, only 30% of youth and high school coaches have any formal training. The Transformational Coach gives coaches the tools to build relationships, move their teams forward, and improve the development of their players as they progress to the next level. This book teaches them how to guide with a purpose. With better coaching, the youth participation crisis in the United States can be addressed, and the negative parent perception can be fixed. This book will develop strong coaches who will lead the way. The coaching profession has seen 58% of coaches quit or consider quitting because of parent issues; 82% of coaches report that dealing with parents has gotten worse; 25% of new coaches leave the profession within the first three years. But the transformational coach can use mindfulness strategies to change the alarming trend in youth athletics for the better. The Transformational Coach is about shifting the mindset of coaches—and even players and parents—to build stronger players, a stronger team, and a stronger program!

Agile Coaching the Dutch way Book Excerpt:

With the current dire shortage of real agile coaches, we need more than just superficial knowledge – we need experts. Many books merely describe agile theory, methods, and processes but for a successful agile coach, having a mental model of their own is crucial. Successful agile coaches see the organization as a system and assume the role of a system developer. They facilitate an organic process that breaks through old patterns, paving the way for the agile organization. All this is done according to the system approach, built up based on the mental model and the meaning assigned to it by the people who are part of the system. This book does not purport to change you and prescribe what you should or should not do. This book describes in detail the beliefs and steps with which you can become a successful agile coach, while staying true to yourself. I hope you enjoy reading this book! Adrie Dolman MSc Preface Ahmed Sidky (Los Angeles Metropolitan Area, USA) Adrie Dolman's book is a true gift to the agile coaching community. Years of insights and experiences coaching individuals, teams, and organizations are curated into this amazing book. There are countless practical tips, tricks, learnings, models, and tools that will enhance any agile coach and accelerate their growth and skill development. Adrie's focus on Agile as a mindset and how to coach to that mindset is brilliant. This book is truly a great addition to any Agile coach's library. If you are an aspiring agile coach this is a must-read. Ahmed Sidky, Ph.D. President of the International Consortium for Agile (ICAgile) Head of Business Agility at Riot Games Preface Andrea Fryrear (Colorado, USA) There are no shortage of resources on Agile coaching in the world, but many of them assume that you’re doing two things: developing software and using Scrum exclusively. What Adrie has created here, however, is a deeply practical guide for any and all Agile coaches, leaving such unhelpful assumptions at the door. Adrie is diligent in avoiding prescription and leaning into description, but I can guarantee that the following pages will nonetheless be enormously practical for agilists looking to build up their coaching capabilities. Despite having spent many years of my own in the trenches working with Agile marketing teams, I found myself highlighting entire sections for reference. I’m already looking forward to sharing the illuminating charts and diagrams with my own team of coaches to help guide their individual growth. And yet this book isn’t just a simple how-to or a compilation of exercises. Adrie shows us the full arc of Agile’s evolution, tracing its origins far beyond twentieth century software development and back into the minds of pioneers of the scientific method hundreds of years ago. He skillfully connects this history to how coaches need to show up for their teams, freeing them from dogmatic adherence to practices that may or may not apply to the kinds of work their teams are doing. From Francis Bacon to Steve Denning, Adrie deftly tracks how Agile came to be the defining method for getting stuff done in the twenty-first century. What’s more, he plucks out important takeaways from all its phases to guide Agile coaches whose working life is far more complex, uncertain, and ambiguous than the one Bacon found himself in. Being an Agile coach is one of the most severely challenging and deeply rewarding jobs on the planet. Sometimes it feels like both of those things in the course of a single meeting. At times being an Agile coach is akin to trudging through the desert with no supplies, trying to reach an uncertain destination while herding a reluctant pack of cats. Resources like this one are an oasis on this difficult journey. If you’re an experienced Agile coach, rejoice. Here’s a careful, considerate fellow practitioner who’s opening his toolkit to share ideas with you. If you’re looking to start on your Agile coaching journey, great news. Someone who’s spent years traversing that path has come back to offer guidance. Agile coaches of all kinds will find value in these pages. For those, like me, who spend our days bringing Agile outside the realms of software development or IT, you won’t encounter overwhelming references to releases, demos, bugs, or code bases. Anyone who tries to nurture the Agile mindset and its corresponding ways of working should stop messing around with my introduction, and dig into this outstanding resource right away. Andrea Fryrear Agile Marketing Coach & Trainer, Co-Founder AgileSherpas Preface Michael K Sahota (North York, Canada) When Adrie Dolman reached out to me to see if I would write a forword, I wondered to myself: Who is this guy? How can he contribute to such a crowded field? How does his work relate to the work I am bringing to the world? Agile Coaching is a complex, broad topic: there are many valuable, distinct and even contradictory views. What this book delivers is a practical, human in-the-trenches view of what it takes day in and day out to operate as an agent of change. The book is full of many useful tools and models that will help anyone aspiring to be an effective Agile Coach. The part of the book that resonated the most with my own views is the importance of your own development. He says “Your most important tool is you, and you have to master that tool properly before you start using it.” This is a point that often gets missed and is actually the foundation of one’s effectiveness. What may happen as you dive into the practices of this book is that you discover your own leadership and how to make local change to culture without talking about it. My hope for you is that you begin to model the shift of what Agile is really all about. I hope you enjoy it. Michael K Sahota Certified Enterprise Coach, Author, Trainer and Consultant Preface John Cass (Washington, USA) In 2008 when I became aware of agile for marketers. The Dutch were ahead of the curve with the practice. So I was excited to learn when Adrie Dolman had written his new book "Agile Coaching - The Dutch Way". His book is all about how agile coaches approach agile coaching. This book is a how-to for coaches. What stood out for me was the thorough review of how to become an agile coach for an organization; from maturity models, to toolboxes, to personal insights from Adrie on what to expect. Great stuff for the team member wanting to become an agile coach the Dutch way! John Cass Organizer, Boston Agile Marketing Meetup Podcaster, A Deep Dive into Agile Marketing with John Cass Preface André Felippa (Sao Paulo, Brazil) Do you aspire to become an Agile Coach? Or maybe you are already an experienced agilist looking for new inspiration, examples and practical tools? For a long time I've been searching for great practical recommendations for Agile Coaches like myself. And there are already plenty of books in the market which cover the Agile frameworks, team-forming and scaling-up, but Adrie's book is quite unique. Adrie skillfully draws from his own extensive coaching experience to offer us a structured pathway to become a great Agile Coach, covering all aspects of this delightful job, whilst also sharing a wealth of helpful and practical examples, tools and techniques, which can easily inspire and be applied by any agile enthusiast, regardless of your own agile maturity level. I hope that you may enjoy the reading and extract as much value from this great book as I did. André Felippa C-Level Agile Coach and MD at Adventures Inc. / Brazil Preface Evan Leybourn (Victoria, Australia) At the time of writing this preface, the Agile Manifesto is just about to turn 20 years old. And yet, as Adrie makes clear in his book, agile is much older than that. This is nowhere clearer than in Æsop's Fables, a collection of stories and fables from ancient Greece over 2500 years ago (between 620–564 BCE). Let me share with you the fable of the Oak and the Reed (translated by George Fyler Townsend in 1887) A very large Oak was uprooted by the wind and thrown across a stream. It fell among some Reeds, which it thus addressed: "I wonder how you, who are so light and weak, are not entirely crushed by these strong winds." They replied, "You fight and contend with the wind, and consequently you are destroyed; while we on the contrary bend before the least breath of air, and therefore remain unbroken, and escape." This remains one of the best descriptions of agility today. So the question must be asked, if agility has been valued for millenia, why is it that we have so many Oaks in modern business? The simple answer is that agility is harder to achieve and maintain than rigidity; and when the winds are calm no one values agility. But, to extend the metaphor, the winds aren't calm. Just take a look back at the last decade, from 2010 to 2020, to see how volatile and unpredictable the world we live in is. Which is where agile coaching comes in. Whether in a marketing team, product development, or across an entire organization, agile coaching helps people who aspire to agility, achieve it. And for any aspiring coach, Adrie's book is a must-read, and practical, guide to the craft. Evan Leybourn CEO, Business Agility Institute 5 stars review Dr. Arnold Brouwer (Apeldoorn, Netherlands) Agile coaching reads like a sincere book that radiates the writer's passion. He takes you along many models and his own practical examples. That gives image and sound to the still quite abstract concept: "agile". And that makes the writer Adrie Dolman an inspiring and experienced agile coach. The writer focuses on agile coaching from a mental framework. He makes concrete and clear what is initially expected of the agile coach himself. The lessons that the author presents to us are valuable for those who are open to them to grow and develop themselves as a person. This makes the writer's lessons and experiences a valuable message which the reader can continue to refer often and easily in daily practice. In addition to offering the writer a mental framework, he also pays attention to the area in which the agile coach works: the organization. It is explained how the systems approach can help to intervene at the different levels in the organization. In a nutshell: the agile coach himself, the individual, the team and the organization as a whole. In this way the writer makes it clear which images and patterns deserve the right attention at what level. This makes the book a practical guide for both the agile coach and the entrepreneur who is eagerly looking for ways to keep up with the ever-changing world. All this means that the book has a lot to offer for various target groups. And that may also be the book's potential pitfall. The author has so much to say that they are in fact several books in one. For readability, a series of "agile" would certainly be in order. By dividing the content of the book into separate parts and elaborating it further, the writer does more justice to his own story. All in all, Adrie Dolman has written a practical guide that clarifies the necessity and usefulness of the field "agile". Dr. Arnold Brouwer CEO RCEC

Educational Recovery for PK 12 Education During and After a Pandemic Book Excerpt:

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on PK-12 education has halted traditional education but has also fostered innovation in distance learning, parental involvement in their children's education, and families' coping mechanisms when forced to "self-quarantine." The educational community is thirsting for strategies, methods, and tools to help with prevention of gaps in the education of youth during this pandemic and in preparation of future global crises. Educational Recovery for PK-12 Education During and After a Pandemic builds awareness of the needs prevalent to the education of PK-12 students effectively during and after the COVID-19 pandemic and provides tools and strategies to assist these students as they grapple with new teaching and learning styles. This book provides timely information to support new modes of teaching and learning during this unprecedented time and fosters traditional methods of education while concurrently respecting guidelines set by the CDC to keep students safe and eliminate gaps in learning. It also benefits the educational community by leading the field in innovative steps to effectively educate PK-12 students so they will continue to be contributing members of society albeit surviving the most devastating epidemic in the last 100 years. Focusing on a wide range of topics such as student mental health, learning gaps, and best teaching practices, this book is ideal for teachers, administrators, district superintendents, counselors, psychologists, social workers, parents, academicians, researchers, and students.
