Invest in excellence--for your students every day, your colleagues year after year, and yourself for a lifetime. Jimmy Casas, veteran educator and author of Culturize, believes that by cultivating a mindset that centers on investing in students, colleagues, and--most of all--themselves, educators can shift schools away from a culture that runs on compliance, blame, and fear. In Live Your Excellence, he shares inspiration, stories, and strategies to help overcome the negative undercurrents that exist in school culture today. Jimmy explains how educators of all stripes can embrace an investment-based approach to everything from collaborative leadership to challenging students to feelings of inadequacy. His insights into navigating the complexities of working in schools will be an invaluable resource for all of the educators who desire--more than anything--to rediscover their own excellence and make a difference.

The purpose of this book is to provide athletic coaches with simple methods to enhance their coaching technique. Coaching is teaching. Therefore, coaches must look at their teaching effectiveness in order to become better coaches. In addition, the athletic arena provides a wonderful opportunity for a Christian witness. Often, coaches find it difficult to form a marriage between their coaching and a Christian lifestyle. This book intends to meld the two together, providing clear, effective teacher education and biblical advice to Christian coaches. The book also provides selected scriptures from God’s Word. Can a Christian coach really make a difference? How can one Christian coach save the world of sport? Well, first there is more than one Christian coach out there. Second, if there was only one Christian coach willing to go to battle with Christ, they would fight and win. One coach plus Jesus equals a majority. Recall that it appeared as though David didn’t stand a chance when he went to fight Goliath. David was not alone. David knew that God would be with him. Was he afraid? Maybe, but his faith in God was greater than his fear! Hopefully, this book motivates coaches to allow their faith in Christ to shine through their coaching style and behavior.

The Psychology of Personal Fulfillment for Women is a practical-guide to understanding how both men and women think--and how women especially can use this knowledge to improve their lives, both in the workforce and at home. Chapters address the psychological strengths that women tend to have (such as communication skills and emotional competence), how to strike a work-life balance, accurately assessing risks and challenges, and much more. Assertiveness as a skill can be a bit tricky for women given the potential of some men, or even other women, to misinterpret specific assertive behaviors. Skilled use of assertiveness, without aggression, takes practice, feedback, and attentive calibration to the specific context. Accessible and reader-friendly, Live Your Dreams, Change the World is an invaluable resource, highly recommended especially for goal-oriented women. --The Midwest Book Review Too many women find their workplace life in conflict with other aspirations they may have. This jargon-free and practical book (with more than a dozen case studies and interviews with famous and successful women executives throughout the United States, such as Helen Thomas, Brooke Shields, Rebecca Chopp, and others) is an in-depth primer for women in the workplace to maximize their potential and fulfill their lives. The psychological insights contained in this book will appeal to a wide audience. Contents: What Is Your Potential?
