✏Agile Engagement Book Summary : Achieve unprecedented business value by fostering true employee engagement Many organizations fail to realize and harness the power of their most valuable asset—their employees. Though they can be developed into a true competitive advantage, engagement isn't attainable if the employee isn't invested in the company's overall success. Agile Engagement offers business leaders a concrete strategy for building, maintaining, and utilizing employee engagement to achieve the highest level of business success. The key? Employees must feel like they are a part of their company's culture instead of having it handed down to them. Stories of failed employee engagement initiatives abound, and they all have one thing in common: they begin from the premise of "initiative" rather than "employee." True engagement occurs when an employee's heart and mind are activated in a way that leads to their motivation and commitment to positively impact the company's goals and vision. This book shows you how to create an environment that stresses a culture of unity at all levels by showing you how to: Create a clear, compelling vision and corresponding engagement strategy through the Engagement Canvas Communicate your unique culture strategy throughout all levels of your company Foster grassroots, employee-led engagement initiatives Improve engagement continuously with the Emplify Score tool Agile Engagement provides a deeper look into real engagement, helping you foster a work environment that's rewarded with unsurpassed productivity, innovation, and competitive advantage, as well as employees who feel valued, respected, and heard.

✏Citizen Engineer Book Summary : The book that helps engineers thrive in today's radically new environment - where non-technical skills are as crucial as technical expertise * * Systematically addresses crucial business, legal, environmental, and societal issues engineers were never taught about in school - but can now make or break their careers. * Offers powerful insights into topics ranging from eco-responsibility to intellectual property to privacy. * Will resonate with virtually every modern engineer - regardless of specialty, industry, or experience. What it takes to be a successful engineer has changed radically in the past decade: success now requires expertise and insight in areas far afield from technology. Engineers must now consider not just the design requirements of their projects, but the full impact of their work - from ecological, business, legal, and even sociological perspectives. They are entering a new age of participative engineering and societal responsibility: the era of the citizen engineer. Citizen Engineer is both a handbook and a manifesto for engineers of all types nd backgrounds who want to succeed in this radically new environment. The authors show how building more techno-responsible and eco-efficient products can translate to higher profits for businesses - as well as an accelerated career path for engineers. They offer powerful insight into how the engineering field is changing, and practical guidance on adapting to these changes - and even leading them.

✏Time Surfing Book Summary : Who has time these days? Any moments that haven’t already been accounted for are swallowed up by smartphones, social media and working into the evening hours. But stress also comes from within; if you learn to time surf you will rediscover calm in your life. This book will inspire and guide you to choose peace as a basis for carrying out all your daily activities, whether at work or in the home. The approach is based on a step-by-step method called Time Surfing, which consists of seven simple and easy-to-learn instructions backed with targeted tips and techniques. Routed in Zen Buddhism, the emphasis is very much on making the most of the time you have rather than trying to control time itself. Suitable for everyone, Time Surfing is based on your natural behaviour; the more you apply the instructions the easier it becomes. The instructions will feel instinctive, and will make it possible for you to surf over the waves of time. You will learn that you can trust your intuition when it comes to choosing what to do. As a result, your actions are not only inspired but also very effective. The focus you experience will be relaxed and unforced. But, more than anything else, an inner sense of calm will arise. Time Surfing has proven popular in the business world. Companies and occupational health organisations such as Delta Lloyd, the Trimbos Instituut and De Persgroep are introducing their employees to the Time Surfing techniques.

✏Tight Book Summary : Tight: Lately, Bryan's been feeling it in all kinds of ways . . . Bryan knows what's tight for him--reading comics, drawing superheroes, and hanging out with no drama. But drama is every day where he's from, and that gets him tight, wound up. And now Bryan's friend Mike pressures him with ideas of fun that are crazy risky. At first, it's a rush following Mike, hopping turnstiles, subway surfing, and getting into all kinds of trouble. But Bryan never really feels right acting so wrong, and drama really isn't him. So which way will he go, especially when his dad tells him it's better to be hard and feared than liked? But if there's one thing Bryan's gotten from his comic heroes, it's that he has power--to stand up for what he feels . . . Torrey Maldonado delivers a fast-paced, insightful, dynamic story capturing urban community life. Readers will connect with Bryan's journey as he navigates a tough world with a heartfelt desire for a different life.
