BETTER BALANCE LEADS TO BETTER BUSINESS RESULTS Successful organizations of the future will be led by fully engaged, balanced teams of men and women working together synergistically to produce extraordinary results. Studies prove that organizations with a greater number of women in senior executive roles are more profitable, have greater market share, and are better able to compete and grow. Businesses with fewer women leaders are just plain leaving money on the table. Yet even in the twenty-first century, women are still not equally represented in leadership. In her groundbreaking new book, leadership expert Rebecca Shambaugh argues that business leaders need to embrace and leverage the broader spectrum of gender intelligence that fosters a balanced leadership perspective and yields better business results. Make Room for Her reveals: What an "Integrated Leadership" model looks like Why the Integrated Leadership approach is powerful--and sustainable What organizations, men, and women can do to harness the unique qualities of men and women How to ensure female talents don't go unnoticed Make Room for Her provides firsthand advice from men on how women can grow and advance to the senior leadership and executive levels, and it offers a female's perspective on how men can best coach and support them in doing so. Featuring interviews with more than 50 top executives as well as case studies based on Shambaugh's work coaching hundreds of women and men leaders, Make Room for Her is essential reading for anyone who hopes to lead an organization to greatness. "Make Room for Her delivers the essential message of Integrated Leadership to leaders at every level of every organization. This indispensable handbook delivers a new model for the organization of the future." -- FRANCES HESSELBEIN, President and CEO, The Frances Hesselbein Leadership Institute "Rebecca Shambaugh's extremely informative, entertaining, and insightful new book is aimed at both a male and female audience. It succinctly describes business leadership models that drive top performance in organizations, as well as proactive steps female executives can take to assume responsibility for their careers and become a significant part of the leadership equation." -- KAREN BECHTEL, Managing Director, The Carlyle Group "Diversity is about more than values and culture--it's also about taking action. Shambaugh provides a road map to cultural change with practical stops along the way for employees of both genders." -- SYLVIA ANN HEWLETT, Economist and CEO, Center for Talent Innovation "Make room to read Rebecca Shambaugh's new book on Integrated Leadership. It will cause you to rethink the leadership model your organization follows and provide you with clear strategies for integrating the best of both men and women leaders to drive performance." -- DOTTIE BRIENZA, Chief Diversity Officer and Executive Talent Leader, Merck "Rebecca Shambaugh's years of strategic leadership development, her extensive study of current business trends, and her real-world interactions with industry leaders have given her extraordinary insight into the importance of increasing women’s senior leadership roles." -- JOHN B.

Does your child have a favorite subject, activity, or hobby? Children learn in multiple ways, and educator Thomas Armstrong has shown hundreds of thousands of parents and teachers how to locate those unique areas in each of our children where learning and creativity seem to flow with special vigor. In this fully updated classic on multiple intelligences, Armstrong sheds new light on the "eight ways to bloom," or the eight kinds of "multiple intelligences." While everyone possesses all eight intelligences, Armstrong delineates how to discover your child's particular areas of strength among them. The book shatters the conventional wisdom that brands our students as "underachievers," "unmotivated," or as suffering from "learning disabilities," "attention deficit hyperactivity disorder," or other "learning diseases." Armstrong explains how these flawed labels often overlook students who are in possession of a distinctive combination of multiple intelligences, and demonstrates how to help them acquire knowledge and skills according to their sometimes extraordinary aptitudes. Filled with resources for the home and classroom, this new edition of In Their Own Way offers inspiration for every learning situation.

Also beobachtet sie, erlernt die Sprache der Tiere und entdeckt, dass Freundlichkeit und Hilfsbereitschaft sie weiterbringen. Viele würden das Blechmonster zwar am liebsten verjagen, aber Roz gibt nicht auf. Sie zieht ein Gänseküken auf, und endlich fassen die Tiere Vertrauen. Als Roz dann in großer Gefahr schwebt, stehen sie ihr als Freunde bei.
