As a seasoned business leader, do you wonder why you sometimes get the traction you want with people, while other times it feels like you’re spinning your wheels? It’s not luck. You must be able to persuade and influence those you lead to get results in a positive way. Finding the win-win in every interaction is critical to achieving this, as your team and stakeholders must willingly go in the direction you’re asking them to go. It’s the integration of these skills—persuasion, influence, and negotiation—that allows leaders to gain traction and develop high-performing, fully engaged teams. In The Leadership PIN Code, Dr Nashater Deu Solheim shares a unique and proven framework for creating the impact and influence you need in your daily work. You’ll learn how to use three simple keys to get what you need from every interaction—while also maintaining positive relationships. If you want to be a leader who inspires trust, easily navigates conflict, and creates value every day, The Leadership PIN Code is for you.Show more
First contact with a mysterious race of aliens reveals an unusual request; a familys pet dog comes to grips with the newly bestowed gift of human-like intelligence; a poet, in danger and alone on a distant world, makes unlikely allies; hundreds of years in the future, a famous hermit lives in the sea above the now-underwater Harvard University; former friends navigate unsteady peace between human refugees and the technologically superior race that saved them; in a future where human life can be infinitely extended through cybertronic rebirth, one woman declines immortality. For decades, science fiction has compelled us to imagine futures both inspiring and cautionary, delivering a lens through which we can view ourselves and the world around us. With The Best Science Fiction of the Year: Volume Two, award-winning editor Neil Clarke provides a year-in-review and twenty-seven of the best stories published by both new and established authors in 2016.Show more

This tenth audiobook in the series features Jane Goodall, the scientist and conservationist who is famous for her work with chimpanzees.Show more
