The essential guide for business leaders, entrepreneurs, and employees looking to navigate today’s multigenerational workplace, which spans more generations than ever before.Millennials have only just begun their reign as the largest generation in the workplace. But they are not alone. For the next decade at least, these young professionals will be working side by side with more established generations, including the baby boomers, who are working longer than ever, and an entirely new group coming up, generation Z. This means within any organization, any team, any meeting, any marketing opportunity, you may find any combination of generations. Each of these age groups has its own attitude, expectations, and professional style. To lead and succeed in any organization today, you must adapt to how millennials work while continuing to accommodate their older colleagues and paying attention to the next generations coming up. The Remix shows you how to adapt and win through proven strategies that serve all generations’ needs. As the leading expert on generations in the workplace, Lindsey Pollak combines the most recent data from a variety of authoritative sources with her own original research as well as detailed case studies from her Fortune 500 clients. Pollak outlines the ways businesses, executives, midlevel managers, employees, and entrepreneurs can handle situations that may arise when diverse styles clash and provides clear strategies to turn generational diversity into business opportunity. Generational change is impacting all industries, all types of organizations, and all leaders. The Remix is an essential listen for anyone who wants to survive and thrive today and into the future.Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook.

What´s the best way to succeed at work? Make sure your boss succeeds first. Today´s typical workplace may be less formal and more inclusive than those of the past, but one thing hasn´t changed: The boss is the boss. A veteran of the U.S. Army, William Smullen spent 50 years leading - and being led by - some of the toughest people in the business. Over his career, he served at every level from platoon to division and at the highest levels in the Pentagon, as well. In business terms, that´s the equivalent of running a very small business to sitting in a corporate C-Suite. Smullen´s final public-service assignment was chief of staff to Secretary of State Colin L. Powell. As chief of staff, one of his main responsibilities was to ensure Secretary Powell kept his positive image and was successful in everything he did. Now, he shares the lessons he learned working in some of the world’s most demanding organizations. In Ways and Means for Managing Up, he tells you everything you need to know to effectively ´´manage your manager´´ in ways that help both you and your boss succeed and rise within your company. In 50 short yet informative chapters, Smullen shares his hard-won insight, such as: View your relationship with your boss as a partnership Think of your boss as a brand Never allow your boss to be surprised Help your boss manage risk or crisis Be a strategic asset your boss counts on Whether you´re good friends with your manager or have trouble coexisting in the same office, your success depends on his or her success. This has always been true, and it will always be true. You serve yourself well when you serve your boss well. Take your career to new heights by learning and applying the Ways and Means for Managing Up. It can serve as a survival guide, a road map, or a blueprint for people at every level in an organization. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Young.

Did you know that many things we do, for instance, going to good schools, making money etc. are designed for us to survive here and now; but knowing God and serving him through Jesus is for us to live victoriously now and in eternity? This book is written to challenge Christian parents, guardians, Sunday School teachers, youth workers and everyone working with children; to consciously and passionately train the young people in the way of the Lord. Christian adults have a mandate from Jehovah God to train their young to be godly. ´´Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.´´ (Proverbs 22:6 - NIV). In this book, you will find some tips on ways to get our young people inspired to know and serve the Lord, through impacting the knowledge of the God who is interested in every part of their lives. In recent times, we hear a lot of disheartening things about how young girls go missing, with some of them willingly going away to join the radicals, while others are deceitfully taken away. Young men, irrespective of their religious background, become terrorists as they become brainwashed with erroneous teachings. As Christian adults, we must not relent in our effort to train the young people to receive Jesus and serve God, through him. We have got to be proactive in raising the next generation of Christians, who will be strong in God and cannot be easily deceived by erroneous teachings. 1. Language: English.

Many aspiring musicians most often don´t get the balanced mentorship that they need to be functional away from their music. Most grow up desiring to travel the world and play on the big stage but, they end up neglecting their natural God-given role as just being a good man or woman, husband or wife, and father or mother. Musicians are often told that they have a ´´musical gift´´, and end up going through life believing all they are supposed to do in life is play their instrument for a living. The irony behind this thinking is, when musicians receive this as their only purpose, they limit their full potential as a human being and struggle to develop other skills outside of music. This can make things really challenging for them as they grow older and start to desire more stability in their life away from playing. In this book you will learn ways for the musician to obtain stability, learn the importance for musicians to have good mentors in other areas outside of music, and also learn what the musician´s true gift is in order to help them in their lives as a whole. This book is for musicians and others who believe the myth that music is a gift. This book is also for those musicians who may be confused of what their purpose really is. As an international, award-winning jazz saxophonist, and now professor of four years in the School of Church Music at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, I´ve experienced the challenges of trying to support a family as an independent musician. I´ve experienced playing gigs just for the money because I didn´t have a steady job. In this book you will get real stories of what I went through as a Christian musician and what I did in order to overcome the challenges so I could support a family and still be able to play gigs that I enjoyed.Musicians have to realize that their gift is the unique way they think, which can serve them more beneficially when they embrace their God-given role as lead 1.

Please note: This is a review and analysis of the book, not the original book. This review and analysis is not endorsed by or affiliated with Vishen Lakhiani. We all know that the mind is an incredible place. We have such great potential that it is often astounding when you think about it. Look around you; everything we have is due to someone´s mind. Despite this, the mind itself is not programmed to maximize our happiness. It is a repetition-loving mechanism and will often keep us stuck in old outdated patterns that may not serve us. These patterns often pass on from generation to generation and no one ever questions them. In the Code of the Extraordinary Mind, Vishen Lakhiani teaches us how to break through this outdated and generationally acquired programming to achieve the life we have always wanted. We will review and analyze Lakhiani´s book. Enjoy! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Doron Alon. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/098301/bk_acx0_098301_sample.mp3.
