Title: Find Your Strongest Life: What the Happiest and Most Successful Women Do Differently

Read Find Your Strongest Life and discover:

  • How to make the most of the role you were born to play
  • How to get others to understand who you really are
  • The successful strategies of other women like you

Check out what women are already saying about Find Your Strongest Life.

Brooke: When I read the “Ten Myths” that opened the book, I was completely hooked. The statistics are interesting and fresh. I also related to the problem that sets up the book: "Which parts of me should I cut out?" As I read, I could see myself in the Marcus’s big-picture analysis and statistics. The early part of the book made me anticipate a breakthrough. And Marcus delivered. Overall, he explains a woman's dilemma perfectly . . . in fresh terms with a unique spin. The main ideas in each chapter were so engaging. Chapter 6 in particular is worth the price of the book. I have already started looking for strong moments in my life, and I want to tell every woman I know to do the same.It is definitely life-changing.

Rebecca:It was really good. It was awesome. And to be honest, perfect timing for my life. I'm REALLY in that place. I can't tell you how badly I've been depressed for the last several months just trying to figure out what to do differently so I'm not so miserable. On one hand, I'm grateful I have a job still. I have a mortgage and bills and all that. But on the other hand...I can't continue to work at a job that gets me nowhere, is not rewarding, not challenging, and mentally drains me. I really have started avoiding my family because I've become so rude and snippy. It's a bad cycle. BUT...God willing this year (sooner than later) I will be able to put this behind me and do what I love :) Even if it's making half as much money. Thanks for thinking of me to read this. I needed it!

Delaney: I was on a plane as I finished reading the manuscript. I was going to be with my daughter who is a law student. As I finished the pages, Marcus helped me gain a new understanding of myself that stood out like a neon sign: I am the person who helps others build infrastructure, get through situations ,and set everything right. It goes beyond motherhood. I am an event planner by birth. I see big pictures and the components necessary to get from vision to execution. The content helped me to reframe my own thinking. Very helpful. I’m excited to take the online test and see whichrole I'm born to play.

Jennifer: As a working mother, I found theconcept of the book fascinating. There are daily struggles of tryingto balancebeing the perfect wife, mother, and employee, and the book helped me truly understand how to navigate all those demands.

Title: StandOut: The Groundbreaking New Strengths Assessment from the Leader of the Strengths Revolution

The next-generation strengths test from the leader of the Strengths Revolution.

Millions of people have taken Gallup organization's StengthsFinder and discovered their top five strengths. As the co-creator of that test and co-author of the book that launched the "strengths revolution," New York Times best-selling author Marcus Buckingham has spent the last decade leading people and organizations into a place of strength.

But something always seemed to be missing. Wherever he went, Buckingham heard two consistent gaps in the StrengthsFinder results. From professionals: "I love knowing what's strong about me, but what am I supposed to do with it?" From managers: "I have too many people on my team to keep all their strengths straight in my head. There's too much information to use it practically in my day-to-day leadership."

StandOut starts where StrengthsFinder ends. Using a massive data set and rigorous statistical testing, this next-generation strength test not only affirms what is strong about people but gives them-everyone, the bosses, the executives, the people in the middle-hyperpractical tools to leverage their strengths every day so they can win at work.

Title: The 360 Degree Leader: Developing Your Influence from Anywhere in the Organization

Don’t wait for that promotion! Start leading NOW…right where you are!

What’s the number one question leadership expert John C.
Maxwell is asked while conducting his leadership conferences? “How can I implement what you teach when I’m not the top leader?”. Is it possible to lead well when you’re not the top dog? How about if the person you work for is a bad leader? The answer is a resounding yes!

Welcome to The 360° Leader. People who desire to lead from the middle of organizations face unique challenges. And they are often held back by myths that prevent them from developing their influence. Dr. Maxwell,
one of the globe’s most trusted leadership mentors, debunks the myths, shows you how to overcome the challenges, and teaches you the skills you need to become a 360° leader.

If you have found yourself trying to lead from the middle of the organization, as the vast majority of professionals do, then you need Maxwell’s insights. You have a unique opportunity to exercise influence in all directions—up
(to the boss), across (among your peers), and down (to those you lead). The good news is that your influence is greater than you know.

Practice the disciplines of 360° leadership and the opportunities will be endless . . . for your organization, for your career, and for your life.

Title: The 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork: Embrace Them and Empower Your Team

The go-to guide for building and maintaining successful teams.

People who have taken their teams to the highest level in their fieldoften have difficulty recreating what accounted for their successes. Is it a strong work ethic? Is it “chemistry”? What tools can you wrap your hands around to build–or rebuild–your team?

Maxwell shares the vital principles of team building that are necessary for success in your business, family, church, or organization. In his practical, down-to-earth style,heshows how: The Law of High Morale inspired a 50-year-old man, who couldn’t even swim, to train for the toughest triathlon in the world. The Law of the Big Picture prompted a former U.S. president to travel cross-country by bus, sleep in a basement, and do manual labor. Playing by the Law of the Scoreboard enabled one Web-based company to keep growing and making money while thousands of other Internet businesses failed. Ignoring the Law of the Price Tag caused one of the world’s largest retailers to close its doors after 128 years in business.

The 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamworkempowers readers–whether coaches or players, teachers or students, CEOs or non-profit volunteers–with the “how-tos” and attitudes for building a successful team.

Why does knowing that so many dentists are named Dennis improve your persuasive prowess?

Every day we face the challenge of persuading others to do what we want. But what makes people say yes to our requests? Persuasion is not only an art, it is also a science, and researchers who study it have uncovered a series of hidden rules for moving people in your direction. Based on more than sixty years of research into the psychology of persuasion, Yes! reveals fifty simple but remarkably effective strategies that will make you much more persuasive at work and in your personal life, too.

Co-written by the world's most quoted expert on influence, Professor Robert Cialdini, Yes! presents dozens of surprising discoveries from the science of persuasion in short, enjoyable, and insightful chapters that you can apply immediately to become a more effective persuader.

Title: The 3rd Alternative: Solving Life's Most Difficult Problems

<p>From the multimillion-copy bestselling author of <i>The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People</i>—hailed as the #1 Most Influential Business Book of the Twentieth Century—<i>The 3rd Alternative</i> introduces a breakthrough approach to conflict resolution and creative problem solving. One of <i>Time</i> magazine’s 25 most influential Americans, Dr. Stephen R. Covey has helped millions transform their lives. In <i>The 3rd Alternative</i>, Covey turns his formidable insight to a powerful new way to resolve professional and personal difficulties and create solutions to great challenges in organizations and society.</p> <p>In any conflict, the 1st Alternative is my way and the 2nd Alternative is your way. The fight usually boils down to a question of whose way is better. There are many methods of “conflict resolution,” but most involve compromise, a low-level accommodation that stops the fight without breaking through to amazing new results. <i>The 3rd Alternative</i> is about more than just an armistice—it’s about creating a new and improved reality. A departure from the usual approaches to conflict resolution, negotiation, and innovation, this book reveals a new way of thinking that will be embraced not only by the many fans who have flocked to Covey’s prior books, but also by anyone who is seeking solutions in their professional or personal lives.</p> <p><i>The 3rd Alternative</i> transcends traditional solutions to conflict by forging a path toward a third option, a 3rd Alternative that moves <i>beyond</i> your way or my way to a higher and better way—one that allows both parties to emerge from debate or even heated conflict in a far better place than either had envisioned. With the 3rd Alternative, <i>nobody</i> has to give up anything, and <i>everyone</i> wins.</p> <p>To a world of escalating strife and contention, 3rd Alternative thinkers like those Covey profiles here bring creative solutions, peace, and healing. Through key examples and stories from his work as a consultant, Covey demonstrates the power of 3rd Alternative thinking. His wide-ranging examples include: a Canadian metropolitan police force that transformed a crime-plagued community by abandoning their “them vs. us” mentality and changing the whole definition of police work; a father who rescued his troubled daughter from years of despair and near suicide in one surprising evening; a judge who brought a quick, peaceful end to one of the biggest environmental lawsuits in American history without setting foot in a courtroom; the principal of a high school for the children of migrant workers who raised their graduation rate from a dismal 30 percent to 90 percent and tripled their basic skill levels; a handful of little-known people who are quietly finding new ways to bring peace to the Middle East; and many others. These various groups and individuals offer living examples of how to create new and better results instead of escalating conflict, as well as how to build strong relationships with diverse people based on an attitude of winning together.</p> <p>Beyond conflict and compromise, <i>The 3rd Alternative</i> unveils a radical, creative new way of thinking. It is a groundbreaking but practical work that demonstrates why 3rd Alternative thinking represents the supreme opportunity of our time.</p>
