The authors lay out a simple, straightforward plan for involving others to get things done, detailing a practical five-step involvement process that begins with five key questions:

What kind of involvement is needed?
How do I know who to include?
How do I invite people to become involved?
How do I keep people involved?
How do I finish the job?

The answers to these questions serve as a guide to finding the right people and keeping them energized, enthusiastic, and committed until the work is completed. Real life examples from corporations, government, and nonprofits illustrate the process in action. You'll learn to involve others in a way that will actually make your work easier, resulting in less stress, better ideas, and more successful outcomes.

You Don't Need to Be a Bitch to Be a Boss: How to Flaunt Femininity, Embrace Empathy, and Win with a Vengeance

$17.00
More Info
Softness is a superpower so many mistakenly suppress, but flaunting femininity at work and in life will lead you to higher peaks and bring in more allegiant masculinity every time.

In a world of "Me Too," women are struggling with the notion of softness and empathy while living up to the strong-suiter persona in order to win at work. Compassion and femininity are superpowers, and toughness and fear will never earn trust and loyalty in the workplace or in life. While many women fight to put on their best "bitch face," they should simply slip on a smile instead.

In her book, Mindie Barnett explores her own experiences working for the "devil" in that famous book of Prada and how she constructed her company on the complete opposite premise than leading with fear. Instead, she embraces her femininity and steers her team with a sense of warmth and compassion without losing her competitive edge. Learn how to create camaraderie with your competition, inspire your team to soar, and rock a haute shade of lipstick while doing it.

    The ultimate insider look at the newest titans of tech and what you can learn from their success
    In 2007, twenty-one-year old David Karp launched Tumblr, a simple micro-blogging platform, on a whim. By 2012, it had become one of the top ten online destinations, drawing 170 million visitors. By 2013, Yahoo had acquired Tumblr for over $1 billion. Just like that, a kid who hadn t even earned his high school diploma was worth over a quarter billion dollars. And he s not the only one . . .
    Silicon Valley s newest billionaires represent a unique and unconventional breed of entrepreneur: young, bold, and taking the world by storm with their extreme speed, insatiable hunger, and progressive leadership. These whiz kids (and, to be fair, a few adults) have the hottest companies in the world. They are all turning just one brilliant insight or hook into money at a rate never before seen in human history creating companies that, even with no revenue, garner insane valuations.
    With unique insider access to the world s most influential and wealthy entrepreneurs, "Forbes" has dug in to find what these super-entrepreneurs say about their own success. This book, introduced, edited, and updated by "Forbes" editor Randall Lane, is the first comprehensive look at who these instant tech billionaires are and how they achieved their quick wins. With sixteen illuminating pieces, including two never-before published features, we get behind-the-scenes examinations of the founders of Spotify, Airbnb, Tumblr, Twitter, and more, including:
    Elon Musk The billionaire founder of Paypal, electric carmaker Tesla, and private space company SpaceX. His extreme ambition is matched by his preternatural engineering mind; no wonder he was the model for Robert Downey Jr. s portrayal of Iron Man.Evan Spiegel The twenty-three-year old declined a $3 billion cash offer from Mark Zuckerberg, after making the mountain come to Mohammed (Snapchat s HQ is in Los Angeles) an unheard of request from a young gun to one of the biggest players in Silicon Valley. The story of Snapchat s origin is even wilder than Facebook s, but Spiegel s ability to parlay infamy and popularity into revenue is still up in the air, even as Snapchat s valuation continues to grow.Alex Karp An eccentric philosopher with almost no tech background turned a Peter Thiel backed venture, Palantir, into a data-mining champion, with clients like the NSA, the FBI, and the CIA. Amid heated privacy concerns, Karp continues to grow Palantir like crazy, to $196 million in funding and an estimated $1 billion in contracts in 2014.
    "You Only Have to Be Right Once" is the definitive collection of everything we can learn from these incredible game changers and what their next moves spell for the future of business."

    ** A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USAToday Bestseller **

    Regardless of what you want to accomplish, from growing your business, creating a great company culture, championing a social cause, or affecting your habits, you can't do it alone. The people around you define your success (whatever that means for you) and they have the potential to change the course of your life.

    That's what You're Invited is about: The most universal strategy for success is creating meaningful connections with those who can impact you, your life, and the things you care about. But how do you make those connections and build trust quickly? What do you do if you're introverted or hate networking?

    Behavioral scientist Jon Levy had no money, reputation or status, but was able to convince groups of Nobel Laureates, Olympians, celebrities, Fortune 500 executives, and even an occasional princess to not only give him advice, but cook him dinner, wash his dishes, sweep his floors, and then thank him for the experience. The goal of his gatherings, much like this book, was not networking, but to build meaningful and lasting relationships.

    This private community based around the dinner experience became known as "The Influencers", named for the member's success and industry influence. Since its inception more than a decade ago, The Influencers has grown into the largest private group of its kind worldwide, with a thriving community both in person and through digital experiences.

    In You're Invited, Levy guides readers through the art and science of creating deep and meaningful connections with anyone, regardless of their stature or celebrity, and demonstrates how we develop influence, gain trust, and build community so that we can impact our communities and achieve what's important to us.

    In this revised edition updated with new findings, a researcher and consultant burrows deep inside the heads of one modern two-career couple to examine how each partner processes the workday--revealing how a more nuanced understanding of the brain can allow us to better organize, prioritize, recall, and sort our daily lives.

    Emily and Paul are the parents of two young children, and professionals with different careers. Emily is the newly promoted vice president of marketing at a large corporation; Paul works from home or from clients' offices as an independent IT consultant. Their days are filled with a bewildering blizzard of emails, phone calls, more emails, meetings, projects, proposals, and plans. Just staying ahead of the storm has become a seemingly insurmountable task.

    In Your Brain at Work, David Rock goes inside Emily and Paul's brains to see how they function as each attempts to sort, prioritize, organize, and act on the vast quantities of information they receive in one typical day. Rock is an expert on how the brain functions in a work setting. By analyzing what is going on in their heads, he offers solutions Emily and Paul (and all of us) can use to survive and thrive in today's hyperbusy work environment--and still feel energized and accomplished at the end of the day.

    In Your Brain at Work, Rock explores issues such as:

  • why our brains feel so taxed, and how to maximize our mental resources
  • why it's so hard to focus, and how to better manage distractions
  • how to maximize the chance of finding insights to solve seemingly insurmountable problems
  • how to keep your cool in any situation, so that you can make the best decisions possible
  • how to collaborate more effectively with others
  • why providing feedback is so difficult, and how to make it easier
  • how to be more effective at changing other people's behavior
  • and much more.

Zweig, a veteran financial journalist, draws on the latest research in neuroeconomics, a fascinating new discipline that combines psychology, neuroscience, and economics to better understand financial decision making.
