Learn how to keep your cool and get the results you want when emotions flare.
Mainly about resolving conflicts and influencing people, this useful guide covers every conceivable aspect of talking with others. People hear facts and stories and turn them into shared knowledge when they're not attacked or overpowered--in other words, when they feel safe. No mushy mental health lesson, the program does a stellar job of explaining many types of communication errors and describing the best ways to achieve mutual purpose. The authors have exceptional ideas about moving toward healthy solutions in a variety of business and personal realms. Anna Fields gives a perfect reading--emotionally bright but still allowing the lesson to retain its practical, straight-talking nature.
This book is a comprehensive, myth-debunking examination of how L1 features(orthographic system, phonology, morphology) can influence English L2 reading at the
"bottom" of the reading process. It provides a thorough but very
accessible linguistic/psycholinguistic examination of the lowest levels
of the reading process. It is both theoretical and practical.
Although the methodologies
and approaches taken in most ESL/EFL texts about reading are top-down
(cognition driven), and pay scant attention to the bottom of the
reading process, those detailed in this book are language driven. The
goal is to balance or supplement (not replace) top-down approaches and
methodologies with effective low-level options for teaching English reading. Core linguistic and psycholinguistic concepts are presented within the context of their application to teaching .
This book takes a comprehensive approach to preparing for, succeeding during, and following up an interview. The structure is to plan it like a marketing campaign and then sell yourself - not so much as a logical point-counterpoint list of qualifications but rather appealing to the emotional side of interviewing as well. I like the rather wholistic approach, particularly how the planning component can boost your confidence going into the interview.
