Product Description:

When you think of public speaking, do you get nervous, anxious, or even sweaty? 

Would you prefer never to give a presentation? 

Do you want to gain confidence in your communication and beyond?

This book can help you. You don’t have to be afraid any longer. You don’t have to let communication anxiety keep you from your goals. While my upcoming book will give advanced strategies to master the game of speaking, this book allows you to get in the game and get started.

Through this book you will learn 7 strategies you can begin today. These strategies will give you a new perspective, they will prepare you, and they will give you actions to practice. As you implement these strategies, your fear will begin to fade. 

It can easily seem like everyone is a gifted speaker when you watch TED talks or compare yourself to skilled co-workers giving presentations. Don't get caught up in the costly comparison trap. Instead, take action to improve your ability and to overcome your fear.

If you struggle in speaking, then first realize that you are not alone. Public Speaking is the #1 fear in America. You are not alone.

Millions of people are terrified at the prospect of going up on stage and addressing a crowd even more than they’re afraid of death. Moreover, it’s an unavoidable experience  if you want to succeed in this world.  Maybe it’s a business presentation for your career path, a speech in school, or a toast at your best friend’s wedding. Fear of speaking grips you. However, it doesn’t have to. Not anymore. 

Full of relatable anecdotes, executable tips, and plenty of laugh-out-loud moments, this book promises to teach you 7 proven strategies to help you find your inner presenter. Don’t wait any longer. Today is the day you take charge of your anxiety, calm your nerves, and – most importantly – speak with no fear.


Some encouragement from author and communications coach, Mike Acker:


Where you are is not where you have to be.

This sentence is included in my introduction. Do you believe it? Do you believe in yourself? At least some part of you does. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be here! Let’s build on this belief. Take a moment and whisper the immortal words from the classic story, The Little Engine That Could, “I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.”

Are you struggling? Do you find yourself dwelling on negative thoughts? “It’s not going to work for me.” “I’m just not a good speaker.” “I’m an introvert. I just can’t.” “I’ve tried in the past, and it didn’t work.”

If you are struggling to believe, will you begin to suspend disbelief? 

I encourage you to read this book as a believer, not as a skeptic. Education will often teach you to think critically. Keep that mindset for work and academics. When it comes to improving your communication, you need to read this receptively. Trade in any negativity for positivity. Think well of yourself. Believe in yourself. Then invest in yourself by applying this book.

Act on these strategies and set yourself up for success in speaking, in your career, and in your life:

THE SEVEN STRATEGIES 
1.    Uncover & Clean the Wound
2.    Imagine the Worst
3.    You Be You 
4.    Speak to One
5.    It’s Not About You
6.    Channel The Power
7.    Be in the Moment

Product Description:
An up-and-coming visionary in the world of philanthropy and a cofounder of the effective altruism movement explains why most of our ideas about how to make a difference are wrong and presents a counterintuitive way for each of us to do the most good possible.
 
While a researcher at Oxford, William MacAskill decided to devote his study to a simple question: How can we do good better? MacAskill realized that, while most of us want to make a difference, we often decide how to do so based on assumptions and emotions rather than facts. As a result, our good intentions often lead to ineffective, sometimes downright harmful, outcomes.
           
As an antidote, MacAskill and his colleagues developed effective altruism—a practical, data-driven approach to doing good that allows us to make a tremendous difference regardless of our resources. Effective altruists operate by asking certain key questions that force them to think differently, set aside biases, and use evidence and careful reasoning rather than act on impulse. In Doing Good Better, MacAskill lays out these principles and shows that, when we use them correctly—when we apply the head and the heart to each of our altruistic endeavors—each of us has the power to do an astonishing amount of good.

Product Description:

A must read for every member of your team if you are serious about upping the level of teamwork. Finally, a book to help members of your team(s) and/or organization(s) to become stronger and more connected and committed team players.

You Are the Team—6 Simple Ways Teammates Can Go from Good to Great is both engaging and practical. Author Michael Rogers uses a variety of inspiring and entertaining stories to highlight each concept in the book. Thought-provoking introspective questions are found at the end of each section to help readers reflect on how they are currently applying each team concept. The end of the book includes an eye-opening assessment with 32 questions to gauge the overall effectiveness of each member of your team.

After reading You Are the Team, members of your team and/or in your organization will think differently about how they personally contribute to teamwork.

Inspire and move members of your team to:

  • Work more selflessly by focusing on the team first
  • Honor commitments by doing what they say they will do
  • Be more honest, bold and direct in discussions, including meetings
  • Take accountability for their performance
  • Proactively seek and embrace feedback from teammates
  • Improve personal gratitude for leaders and teammates
  • Bring more positive energy to the team
  • Refrain from negativity and gossip
  • Compliment more regularly and celebrate successes more frequently
  • Be more respectful and kinder
  • Demonstrate greater empathy and improve understanding
  • Go the extra mile for the team
  • Improve personal focus on goals
  • Bring solutions, not problems
  • Inspire and lead

Would you agree that team members committing and acting on just a few of these concepts would improve connection, collaboration and ultimately teamwork?

This is a book for you, your team and entire organization.

You Are the Team--6 Simple Ways Teammates Can Go from Good to Great dramatically improves the way your team works together by changing the heart and mind of every member of your team.

Many leaders struggle with getting members of their team to help and assist each other; to be direct, candid and respectful in their communication; to actively participate in meetings--providing ideas and passionately discussing important topics; to trust each other; to stop their team from engaging in negative talk and even gossip; and to have members of their team take accountability for their job and performance... to name just a few.

You Are the Team--6 Simple Ways Teammates Can Go from Good to Greatcombats each of these team issues, which stem from what author Michael Rogers calls the "Teammate Me Culture," which is when members of the team care more about their own needs than the team's needs and where teamwork fails as a result.

Everyone knows that remarkable teamwork equals remarkable results. That's why organizations spend so much time and money on team-building and team-development activities. However, few teams succeed in actually improving their teamwork because team members have little commitment to the team or its outcomes.

The sad reality is that many members of teams are performing far below what they are capable of achieving, and consequently, they hold their teams back from being extraordinary.

Order a copy for you, for your entire team, and for your entire organization.

Author Michael G. Rogers is a former Director of Learning, Performance and Quality for a Fortune 50 company and is currently an adjunct professor at Southern Utah University in the School of Business. He has over 20 years of experience consulting and working with a wide variety of teams.

Product Description:

In search of "the best America there ever was," bestselling author and award-winning journalist Bob Greene finds it in a small Nebraska town few people pass through today—a town where Greene discovers the echoes of the most touching love story imaginable: a love story between a country and its sons.

During World War II, American soldiers from every city and walk of life rolled through North Platte, Nebraska, on troop trains en route to their ultimate destinations in Europe and the Pacific. The tiny town, wanting to offer the servicemen warmth and support, transformed its modest railroad depot into the North Platte Canteen.

Every day of the year, every day of the war, the Canteen—staffed and funded entirely by local volunteers—was open from five a.m. until the last troop train of the day pulled away after midnight. Astonishingly, this remote plains community of only 12,000 people provided welcoming words, friendship, and baskets of food and treats to more than six million GIs by the time the war ended.

In this poignant and heartwarming eyewitness history, based on interviews with North Platte residents and the soldiers who once passed through, Bob Greene tells a classic, lost-in-the-mists-of-time American story of a grateful country honoring its brave and dedicated sons.

Product Description:
What is it like to volunteer in a rural farming village in West Africa? Aside from chasing chickens from the outhouse and braving over-crowded vans held together by string, Bucket Showers & Baby Goats is a moving non-fiction narrative based on the author’s experience volunteering in the Volta Region of Ghana. While living with members of the community on a daily basis, Brown paints a vivid picture immersed in village life and the challenges that accompany it. We are introduced to the children and families of Saviefe as the narrative unfolds, and the reader is taken day by day as the intended tasks transform from sorting donated books for an unfinished library, into conducting much needed sex education workshops for the students. In describing community efforts to improve their lives through education and collaboration, Bucket Showers & Baby Goats is uplifting, honest, funny, and poignant as it reveals the reality of those projects when the author returns to the village eighteen months later. An eye-opening account, Brown depicts the community of Saviefe and her volunteer experience by giving readers a unique view into the common challenges and solutions associated with community development initiatives.

Product Description:
In 1999, Juliet Cutler leaves the United States to teach at the first school for Maasai girls in East Africa. Captivated by the stories of young Maasai women determined to get an education in the midst of a culture caught between the past and the future, she seeks to empower and support her students as they struggle to define their own fates.



Cutler soon learns that behind their shy smiles and timid facades, her Maasai students are much stronger than they appear. For them, adolescence requires navigating a risky world of forced marriages, rape, and genital cutting, all in the midst of a culture grappling with globalization. In the face of these challenges, these young women believe education offers hope, and so, against all odds, they set off alone―traveling hundreds of miles and even forsaking their families―simply to go to school.



Twenty years of involvement with this school and its students reveal to Cutler the important impacts of education across time, as well as the challenges inherent in tackling issues of human rights and extreme poverty across vastly different cultures. Working alongside local educators, Cutler emerges transformed by the community she finds in Tanzania and by witnessing the life-changing impact of education on her students.



Proceeds from the sale of this book support education for at-risk Maasai girls.
