It seems random, but what if we could get some control over these occurrences? What if you could develop and strategically use skills for connecting with people? What if you could then leverage those connections to advance your interests while helping others? This isn´t ´´too good to be true´´. People are doing it every single day. With this book, you´re next. Everything you do will involve people. In sports, you have teammates, opponents, and coaches. Businesses have co-workers, customers, prospects, suppliers, employees, and bosses. Relationships don´t even exist without at least two people involved.

Expanding your ability to deal with people will always help you. Here, you´ll learn 55 people skills that need to become part of your communication arsenal starting now.

If you were doing it instead of just knowing it, you would be getting better results with people, and in turn increased success in every area of your life. This booklet will infuse you with 55 basic, everyday people skills. How soon can you start? How soon will you see results? How about the next time you communicate with a person!

Written by Gerald Nierenberg, the world´s foremost authority on the subject, and recognized as the Father of Contemporary Negotiation, The New Art of Negotiating is an updated, expanded version of the million-copy bestseller, The Art of Negotiating, which was the first on the subject of negotiating and introduced us all to the art of effective negotiation. The Negotiation Institute which he founded, is the longest negotiation skills seminars and training in the world.

Since then, the landscape of business has changed greatly. The New Art of Negotiating provides Nierenberg´s effective strategies redesigned for today´s world. You will learn how to analyze your opponent´s motivation, negotiate toward mutually satisfying terms, learn from your opponent´s body language, and much more. Throughout, the author will guide you in successfully applying his famous win-win tactics to the bargaining process. Once, Gerald Nierenberg changed the way we think about negotiating.

Start making savvier decisions and outsmart your competitors with greater confidence and ease with this simple and comprehensive guide to the skills, tactics, techniques, tools, case studies, and lessons behind strategic thinking. Professor Ridgley has crafted these 24 lectures as an accessible way to engage with thinking that will help you think-and act-more strategically in business and in your own life, whether you´re the CEO of a Fortune 500 company or you´re preparing to embark on a new career path. These lectures are loosely organized around several key topics central to effective strategic thinking, including: principles of conflict (in which you´ll follow the development of strategic theory from its roots in great military campaigns to its modern applications in business); competitive intelligence (which plays an increasingly important role in strategic thinking); and tools of strategy and analysis (which can aid your understanding of the forces that shape our future and can help you make sense of a rapidly changing world). Central to these lectures are the tools and tricks that strategic thinkers have used to better approach problems and seek lasting solutions. Among those you´ll learn how to use are the indirect approach (which offers you a much greater utility in achieving your objectives without approaching your opponent head-on); the value chain (a method that divides your team or organization into its value - producing activities so you can better inform yourself on its internal strengths and weaknesses; and the four actions framework (in which you ask yourself four questions to challenge your established logic in an effort to gain a stronger competitive advantage). PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio. Language: English. Narrator: Professor Stanley K.

It is important for Airmen to understand the nature of 4GW: what it is, who uses it and some of the contributing factors. Because this is the kind of war where simply destroying physical targets is not likely to contribute to our success, understanding our adversaries and the local population of the countries in which we operate, is also necessary for victory. Greater familiarity with their languages and cultures will help us in this endeavor. The Office of the Secretary of Defense and the Joint Staff are taking steps to determine the language requirements of the combatant commanders, assess the language and culture skills of all service personnel and DOD civilians, and develop a professional corps of competent language speakers. The Air Force is making progress toward meeting the OSD and CJCS language and culture goals, but Airmen also need to understand why these skills are important in the employment of airpower. Airpower can be used effectively against our 4GW opponents, and language and culture skills can assist in these efforts.
