E-BOOK EXCERPT

Why can't you get what you really want from IT? All you desire is a ready-and-willing partner to help you exploit IT to drive your business. Instead, you get endless rules and regulations, not to mention processes, projects, and technologies that deliver too little, too late, for too much. It's frustrating! How to build a relationship that puts you firmly in control and produces the business results you need? In The 8 Things We Hate About IT, Susan Cramm provides the answers. Start by understanding differences between operational and IT managers - in backgrounds, personality, pressures, and incentives. Cramm explains how differences prevent operational managers and IT from communicating what, why, and how they do what they do. Citing case studies and stories, the author then presents practical strategies for overcoming the difficulty. These include seeing things from your IT partners' perspective, developing a single version of 'truth,' and assuming accountability for IT just as you've done for management of your firm's financial and human resources. Brutally honest, provocative, and filled with sound advice, this book reveals that the key to solving the IT problem is decidedly un-IT: it's a deeper understanding of human behavior, including how to apply your leadership skills to the world of IT.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Joe McGee, author, life trainer, and former school administrator, reveals eight simple yet profound principles kids need to live successfully after they leave home. A parent's time with their kids at home is limited and before they realize it, it will be the moment for their children to move out of the house. Although it's important to spend quality time with our children--loving them and getting to know them--it's also important to prepare them for living life on their own. Joe McGee gives parents eight powerful principles that go beyond vocation, ethnicity, religious background, or upbringing. They are simple things parents can give their kids to help them achieve a higher standard of living-a godly standard that will bring success and God's blessings. These principles include: feeling secure in their self esteem, having vision for their future, understanding simple math, developing organizational and time management skills, learning to be humble, developing communication skills, having strong character, and embracing a sense of humor. In the popular parenting book Raising Great Kids by Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend, readers learn to develop six character traits in their children - attachment, responsibility, reality, competence, morality, and worship/spiritual life. McGee presents a more rounded approach still focusing some on character, but also on practical principles that kids need to know when they leave home including math and time management skills, communication, and humor.

Each day brings its own unique circumstances, challenges, and opportunities. What we do with each situation we face will bring more peace and serenity if we let our passions be part of our response. In reality, how we live each day is often the result of what we love to do, perhaps only a few days each year, yet those few days can help us respond to each day in a way that makes it worth living, in the best sense of the word. In I Hate to Leave on a Cloudy Day, Larson describes what his passions are and uses them to illustrate how he has fit together responses for many of lifes questions. While his passions may not be yours, the lessons learned from each thing you hold dear will let you react to every other thing in your life with a dedication that comes from knowing what you love. In his love for trout, Larson has become an ardent supporter of the environment in all its forms. In his creative cooking, he brings joy to a process that many find tiresome and tedious. In his newfound love for a dog, hes seen grace abound. What do you hold so dear that can define who you are and who you want to be?

E-BOOK EXCERPT

* AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * From the New York Times bestselling author of The Vanishing American Adult, an intimate and urgent assessment of the existential crisis facing our nation. Something is wrong. We all know it. American life expectancy is declining for a third straight year. Birth rates are dropping. Nearly half of us think the other political party isn’t just wrong; they’re evil. We’re the richest country in history, but we’ve never been more pessimistic. What’s causing the despair? In Them, bestselling author and U.S. senator Ben Sasse argues that, contrary to conventional wisdom, our crisis isn’t really about politics. It’s that we’re so lonely we can’t see straight—and it bubbles out as anger. Local communities are collapsing. Across the nation, little leagues are disappearing, Rotary clubs are dwindling, and in all likelihood, we don’t know the neighbor two doors down. Work isn’t what we’d hoped: less certainty, few lifelong coworkers, shallow purpose. Stable families and enduring friendships—life’s fundamental pillars—are in statistical freefall. As traditional tribes of place evaporate, we rally against common enemies so we can feel part of a team. No institutions command widespread public trust, enabling foreign intelligence agencies to use technology to pick the scabs on our toxic divisions. We’re in danger of half of us believing different facts than the other half, and the digital revolution throws gas on the fire. There’s a path forward—but reversing our decline requires something radical: a rediscovery of real places and human-to-human relationships. Even as technology nudges us to become rootless, Sasse shows how only a recovery of rootedness can heal our lonely souls. America wants you to be happy, but more urgently, America needs you to love your neighbor and connect with your community. Fixing what's wrong with the country depends on it.
