The concepts and impact are powerful, but Alan has a way of delivering them that makes them feel easy, and most importantly, actionable, whether you're new to the wedding and event industry or a seasoned veteran.Each chapter stands on its own, so this audiobook is not meant to be listened from start to finish (although, you certainly can, if you'd like).

Where did Alan gain this knowledge? Great question! It's through his years publishing wedding magazines, as vice president of sales at The Knot, speaking at conferences (in 14 countries on five continents) and consulting and doing sales training one-on-one, and in small groups (Mastermind Days), with businesses, just like yours. Join Alan on this journey through sales, business, and inspiration, and you'll be inspired to take your wedding and event business where its never been! 1.

In a fascinating rumination, Edward G. Simmons combines a lifetime’s experiences and biblical research in a voice that is as comfortable and welcoming as if one was seated in an easy chair in his study. With his fierce intellect and honesty, Simmons layers his philosophical lessons with personal insights and the latest discoveries of science.“The audience, I hope, will be anyone who enjoys studying the Bible and prefers seeking new and challenging insights, rather than a devotional rehashing of traditional messages. Pastors, scholars, students, and anyone in quest of spiritual insight through Bible study should find these conversations entertaining, challenging, and inspirational. My hopes would be met if such readers found the insights presented here did indeed promote a stronger sense of relationship with God.” (Edward G. Simmons)About the authorDr. Edward G. Simmons was born in Savannah, Georgia, in 1943. A graduate of Mercer University, he earned both an MA and PhD from Vanderbilt University. Dr. Simmons taught history at Appalachian State University until he was drafted to serve during the Vietnam era. Stationed in California, then Georgia, he served in the Air Force.Following his military tenure, Dr. Simmons became an expert in the field of organizational management as a result of 34 years of service for the Georgia Department of Human Resources, during which, in addition to consulting for top-level managers in various state organizations, he also continued to teach history part-time at local colleges. A supporter of the emphasis on compassion, inclusion, and human rights found in progressive Christianity, his writings can often be found on the website ProgressiveChristianity.com. 1.

OK, you might not have heard of me. Not yet. I hope that the next few hours you spend with me will change that and will also change the way you think about work and life and limitations and possibilities. I have been called an observer of people and situations. I am constantly mulling over why people do what they do and how they can do it more effectively. But more than that, I am a doer. I like to dream big dreams and make them come true. In addition to running a successfully consulting business for over 35 years and raising three successful adult children with my wife Nancy, I have also found time in the last 10 years to complete six Ironman triathlons - number six in 2016, as a way of celebrating my 66th birthday. Along the way the folks at Inc. magazine thought my approach to work and life was so unique they saw fit to write a four-page profile about my business and me. Others it seems although thought I had something to add on the topic of life and work. Chaz Allen was one such person. I met Chaz Allen, who narrates the audiobook version of this work, almost 20 years ago when we collaborated on my first audiobooks. It was his suggestion that I start to publish a monthly article of my thoughts and observations. From that suggestion, Secrets of Success was born. That was over 12 years and 150 articles ago. I was overwhelmed with the success and acceptance of my writings. It has grown to a world-wide audience. Readers from England to Australia. from India to Poland and across the United States, read my Secrets of Success monthly offerings and that readership continues to grow. Wanting to share my ideas with as many people as possible I've taken 49 of those articles and gathered them into this book. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chaz Allen.

The Power of the Other
12,99 € *

A bestselling author and expert on the psychology of leadership identifies the critical ingredient for personal and professional well-being. Most leadership coaching focuses on helping leaders build their skills and knowledge and close performance gaps. These are necessary steps, but not sufficient. Using evidence from neuroscience and his work with leaders, Dr. Henry Cloud shows that the best performers draw on another vital resource: personal and professional relationships that fuel growth and help them surpass current limits. Popular wisdom suggests that we should not allow others to have power over us, but the reality is that they do, for better or for worse. Consider the boss who diminishes you through cutting remarks versus one who challenges you to get better. Or the colleague who always seeks the limelight versus the one who gives you the confidence to finish a difficult project. Or the spouse who is honest and supportive versus the one who resents your success. No matter how talented, intelligent, or experienced, the greatest leaders share one commonality: the power of the others in their lives. Combining engaging case studies, persuasive findings from cutting-edge brain research, and examples from his consulting practice, Dr. Cloud argues that whether you're a Navy SEAL or a corporate executive, outstanding performance depends on having the right kind of interpersonal connections to fuel personal growth and minimize toxic associations and their effects. Presenting a dynamic model of the impact these different kinds of connections produce, Dr. Cloud shows readers how to get more from themselves by drawing on the strength and expertise of others. You don't have a choice whether others have power in your life, but you can choose what kinds of relationships you want. Advance Praise for The Power of the Other "Henry Cloud has done it again! The Power of the Other reminds us that our successes and failures often come through others. Those who have high relational IQs are always the most successful, and Henry reminds us to surround ourselves with the right people if we want positive results.”—Dave Ramsey, author of six national bestsellers "Henry Cloud understands the connections among character, relationships, and leadership like no one else I've ever known. Really. His writings are as wise and insightful as they are readable, and The Power of the Other is another wonderful example.”—Patrick Lencioni, bestselling author of The Five Dysfunctions of a Team "Henry's deep understanding of people, growth, and performance is unique and impactful. This new book brings to light the power of connection and the primacy of relationships, in personal and professional development. For everyone who wants to thrive in all parts of life, this book is a must.”—Scott Beck, founder of Ancestry.com "Once again, Henry has changed the conversation. Raw talent and willpower go a long way. Yet without healthy relationships, we leave most of their value on the table. But this isn't a book just about relationships—it shows how to knock down a leader's performance barriers. Henry's use of neuroscience makes his logic and storytelling even more compelling.”—Marten Hoekstra, former CEO of UBS "Dr. Cloud's latest book brings the heart and the mind together, showing that constructive relationships support us in making our own lives and the lives of others better. There is no singular success; we all need to work with 'others' to become our best selves. The Power of the Other shows you where to look.”—Maria Shriver, journalist, founder of Shriver Media, the Women's Alzheimer's Challenge, and A Woman's Nation

Sherlock Holmes, the world's 'only unofficial consulting detective', was first introduced to readers in A Study in Scarlet published by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in 1887. It was with the publication of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, however, that the master sleuth grew tremendously in popularity, later to become one of the most beloved literary characters of all time. In this book series, the short stories comprising The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes have been amusingly illustrated using only Lego® brand minifigures and bricks. The illustrations recreate, through custom designed Lego models, the composition of the black and white drawings by Sidney Paget that accompanied the original publication of these adventures appearing in The Strand Magazine from July 1891 to June 1892. Paget's iconic illustrations are largely responsible for the popular image of Sherlock Holmes, including his deerstalker cap and Inverness cape, details never mentioned in the writings of Conan Doyle. This uniquely illustrated collection, which features some of the most famous and enjoyable cases investigated by Sherlock Holmes and his devoted friend and biographer Dr. John H. Watson, including A Sandal in Bohemia and The Red-Headed League, is sure to delight Lego enthusiasts, as well as fans of the Great Detective, both old and new. THE ADVENTURE OF THE SPECKLED BAND: A distraught young woman named Helen Stoner arrives at Baker Street early one morning to ask Sherlock Holmes for help as she fears that her life is being threatened by her stepfather, Dr. Grimesby Roylott. At Stoke Moran, the estate where Miss Stoner and her stepfather live, Holmes carefully inspects the recent, but unnecessary, repairs to the manor-house and in doing so exposes a murderous plot.
