You’ll also need to know how candidates earn free publicity, fine-tune their messages, capitalize on absentee voting as part of a get-out-the-vote strategy, and hold low-cost fundraisers to complement efforts.

 

The booklet includes a section specifically designed for women on overcoming challenges, inspirational quotes, and engaging questions that prompt you to reflect on and apply what you’ve learned.

By Joanie B. Connell, Ph.D.

“In Flying Without a Helicopter, Joanie Connell details unique challenges faced by young adults and their leaders in the workplace, offering action plans readers can apply to their ‘real work’ situation as they move toward solution. This book was written for you—whether you are a manager, a young adult new to the business world, or a parent of that young adult. Thanks, Joanie, for zooming in on this timely topic!”
—Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The One Minute Manager®
and Great Leaders Grow

“The problems Joanie Connell describes are real. Employees are entering—and leaving—the workplace without the levels of resilience and independence they need to succeed. I recommend Flying without a Helicopter to people who want to develop the life skills needed to succeed in the corporate world (and their parents) and to leaders who want their companies to succeed.”
— Daniel Bradbury, CEO coach, investor, life science consultant,
and former CEO of Amylin Pharmaceuticals

“Managing across generations now is remarkably difficult, as each one approaches timelines, deadlines, conflict, and recognition in different ways. To understand these differences and leverage the creativity within, you could do no better than to read Connell’s Flying without a Helicopter! A wise read for leaders as well as employees, job seekers, and even parents!”

Cora Tyler works at the Hotel Metronome in San Francisco, and she’s always seeking to learn new things.

A chance meeting on a train with an employee at a hotel in New York City, Ari, gives her the chance to share her business insights. Their lively discussion gets them both thinking about delivering excellent customer service.

While Cora makes it point to focus on details such as remembering the names of guests, Ari admits that he usually can’t even pronounce their names. Unlike Cora, the members of his team rarely try that hard to create what she calls “customer delight.”

Cora and Ari chat extensively, and they stay in touch after their lively discussion. By joining them on their journey, you’ll learn how to:

improve time management skills;

communicate better in person and in writing;

deliver service that exceeds expectations;

handle and resolve customer complaints.

You’ll also learn the Ten Commandments of Business and discover the importance of managing the most important thing of all – your attitude. When you do that, you’ll be on your way to turning your customers into evangelists, and that alone is Priceless.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Admiral Mike Mullen, on May 10, 2012, stated that the national debt is the single biggest threat to national security. The deficit spending and accumulated debt of many nations, including the United States, is a topic of wide discussion and concern. Offering provocative and compelling solutions for remedying the country’s banking system, The Next Money Crash—and How to Avoid It presents a transcription of the conference, “Fixing the Banking System for Good,” organized by the Global Interdependence Center. This conference offered a variety of speakers presenting differing views of key issues, all with a common goal—to moderate the financial disruptions the current system allows; to provide a sound, stable currency; to compel, through market forces, more transparency in the activities of financial institutions; and to take taxpayers off the hook. In all of the plans, more capital and more transparency are key elements, along with the end to government guarantees, which provide advantages to large, opaque financial institutions. The Next Money Crash—and How to Avoid It compiles the latest thinking of many leading minds in finance and economics and provides a clear prescription for fixing the banking system as well as the global monetary system.
