Do you feel comfortable delivering bad news? Do you look forward to speaking in public? Do you enjoy networking? Is it easy for you to speak your mind and be assertive with friends and colleagues? If you answered no to any of these questions, this book can help! What often sets successful people apart is their willingness to do things most of us fear. What´s more, we have the false notion that successful people like to do these things, when the truth is that successful people have simply found their own way to do them. According to Andy Molinsky, an expert on behavior in the business world, there are five key challenges underlying our avoidance tendencies: authenticity, competence, resentment, likability, and morality. Does the new behavior you´re attempting feel authentic to you? Is it the right thing to do? Answering these questions will help identify the ´´gap´´ in our behavioral style that we can then bridge by using the three C´s: Clarity, Conviction, and Customization. Perhaps most interesting, Molinsky has discovered that many people who confront what they were avoiding come to realize that they actually enjoy it, and can even be good at it. Short, prescriptive, and based not only on the author´s groundbreaking research but on his own quest to get out of his comfort zone, Reach will help you take the thing you are most afraid of doing and make it a proud part of your personal repertoire.
By sixth grade Miranda and her best friend, Sal, know how to navigate their New York City neighborhood. But things start to unravel. Sal gets punched by a kid on the street, the apartment key that Miranda´s mom keeps hidden for emergencies is stolen. Then a mysterious note arrives. The notes keep coming, and Miranda realizes that whoever is leaving them knows things no one should. Each message brings her closer to believing that only she can prevent a tragic death. Until the final note makes her think she´s too late. ´´Like A Wrinkle in Time (Miranda´s favorite book), When You Reach Me far surpasses the usual whodunit or sci-fi adventure to become an incandescent exploration of ´life, death, and the beauty of it all.´´´ -The Washington Post This Newbery Medal winner that has been called ´´smart and mesmerizing,´´ (The New York Times) and ´´superb´´ (The Wall Street Journal) will appeal to readers of all types, especially those who are looking for a thought-provoking mystery with a mind-blowing twist. Shortly after a fall-out with her best friend, sixth grader Miranda starts receiving mysterious notes, and she doesn´t know what to do. The notes tell her that she must write a letter-a true story, and that she can´t share her mission with anyone. It would be easy to ignore the strange messages, except that whoever is leaving them has an uncanny ability to predict the future. If that is the case, then Miranda has a big problem-because the notes tell her that someone is going to die, and she might be too late to stop it.
