Women are capable of defending themselves and their loved ones--if they learn how. It is not the female's size, it is her culturally induced ignorance that makes her think she is helpless. This book is a clarion call to "sleeping beauties" to wake up and take charge of their own self-defense--both verbal and physical--and celebrates women (and kids) who fought back. Funny and provocative, this is an irreverent but deadly serious look at how family, religion, history, news and entertainment keep women thinking they are defenseless.--From publisher description.

Emotional communication is a crucial but often underappreciated force in our working lives - it enhances or impedes occupational success, forges meaningful bonds among co-workers, and shapes the moral character of our workplaces. Collective performances of emotion define an organization's culture. They define how organizations are perceived by their customers and communities. Although often subject to perverse manipulation, the communication of emotion can make our work humane, rewarding, and even good. Communicating Emotion at Work chronicles the rich emotional experiences of employees drawn from a broad cross-section of industries and occupations. It takes a decidedly positive approach, recognizing that emotional communication is a vital and creative response to the challenges of life in complex organizations. The text introduces readers to the engaging and cross-disciplinary body of research that has emerged around organizational emotion. At the same time, each chapter is steeped in real-life emotional narratives, concrete examples, and the contemporary trends that are changing the emotional tenor of work. Designed to help readers become more mindful of the organizational practices that shape their emotional well-being, this accessible text will be particularly useful in courses focused on organizational communication, business, and organizational behaviour.

We give up too easily. With a simple change of attitude, what seem like insurmountable obstacles become once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. Ryan Holiday, who dropped out of college at nineteen to serve as an apprentice to bestselling 'modern Machiavelli' Robert Greene and is now a media consultant for billion-dollar brands, draws on the philosophy of the Stoics to guide you in every situation, showing that what blocks our path actually opens one that is new and better. If the competition threatens you, it's time to be fearless, to display your courage. An impossible deadline becomes a chance to show how dedicated you are. And as Ryan discovered as Director of Marketing for American Apparel, if your brand is generating controversy - it's also potentially generating publicity. The Stoic philosophy - that what is in the way, is the way - can be applied to any problem: it's a formula invented more than 2,000 years ago, whose effectiveness has been proven in battles and board rooms ever since. From Barack Obama's ability to overcome obstacles in his election races, to the design of the iPhone, the stoic philosophy has helped its users become world-beaters.

Researched and written by two specialists in human resource management and workplace law, respectively here is sensible, practical advice on how to recognize, understand, cope with, and prevent a major and still growing crime in today's organizations. Their "red flag" indicators that a stalking crime is being committed, plus detailed analyses of the literature, court cases, and accounts by victims themselves, are specially designed and presented to help organizational managers create and implement successful anti-stalking and anti-harassment programs in their organizations. Schell and Lanteigne's narrative case studies make clear how victims act and react, and provide insight into the minds of stalkers. An important contribution to our understanding of a growing, extremely dangerous "happening," and an essential resource for executives and managers who have to cope with it.
