Conventionally motivation is thought of as something that is created by exciting pep talks or by the promise of material rewards. More recent research suggests, however, that such approaches may have the opposite effect of what was intended and that there is no ´´one size fits all´´ approach to motivation. In this audiobook, Damian Hamill takes an NLP systemic approach to motivation and presents a model that suggests motivation emerges when we are aligned with whatever it is we are seeking to achieve. A lack of motivation, he suggests, may be a very useful way of communicating that what we are planning to do conflicts with something that is important to us. Damian guides the listener through a process to explore, appreciate, and, if appropriate, resolve such conflicts, enabling a greater degree of motivation to naturally evolve as a result. 1.

Clarice and Dave Johnson are a married couple struggling to overcome physical trauma, personal disappointments, and unrealized expectations. They also have differing opinions on what it means to be successful and live a meaningful life. Clarice, a designer-label, luxury-car kind of woman, is driven by her quest to climb the social ladder; Dave, who feels at home in his blue jeans and pick-up truck, is satisfied coaching little league and running a janitorial service. After Clarice sustains injuries in a car accident, the constant presence of her physical therapist, Julie, creates strife that quickly moves the Johnson´s marriage into crisis mode. Clarice and Dave struggle to find resolution as they learn the importance of promises made and kept – and discover that help sometimes comes from unlikely places. 1. Language: English.

This third edition of an international bestseller--over 2 million copies sold worldwide and translated into 33 languages--details how its powerful insights on motivation, conflict, and collaboration can benefit organizations as well as individuals. Since its original publication in 2000, Leadership and Self-Deception has become an international word-of-mouth phenomenon. Rather than tapering off, it sells more copies every year. The book´s central insight--that the key to leadership lies not in what we do but in who we are--has proven to have powerful implications not only for organizational leadership but in readers´ personal lives as well. Leadership and Self-Deception uses an entertaining story everyone can relate to about a man facing challenges at work and at home to expose the fascinating ways that we blind ourselves to our true motivations and unwittingly sabotage the effectiveness of our own efforts to achieve happiness and increase happiness. We trap ourselves in a ´´box´´ of endless self-justification. Most importantly, the book shows us the way out. Readers will discover what millions already have learned--how to consistently tap into and act on their innate sense of what´s right, dramatically improving all of their relationships.

This guide to play reading for students and practitioners of both theater and literature complements, rather than contradicts or repeats, traditional methods of literary analysis of scripts. Ball developed his method during his work as Literary Director at the Guthrie Theater, building his guide on the crafts playwrights of every period and style use to make their plays stage worthy. The audiobook is full of tools for students and practitioners to use as they investigate plot, character, theme, exposition, imagery, motivation/obstacle/conflict, theatricality, and the other crucial parts of the superstructure of a play. He includes guides for discovering what the playwright considers the play´s most important elements, thus permitting interpretation based on the foundation of the play rather than its details. Using Hamlet as illustration, Ball assures a familiar base for illustrating script-reading techniques as well as examples of the kinds of misinterpretation listeners can fall prey to by ignoring the craft of the playwright. Of immense utility to those who want to put plays on the stage (actors, directors, designers, production specialists) Backwards and Forwards is also a fine playwriting manual because the structures it describes are the primary tools of the playwright. 1.
