Bonus Gift 1: Improve Your Reading Comprehension 

Because reading comprehension is not commonly taught, readers recall little of what they read. So you can read volumes and remember nothing. This is not a good thing.


Bonus Gift # 2: A Research Paper on How To Improve Your Memory With Mneumonics




In the digital age, most of us have not learned how to memorize information for later recall. In most fields, we are doubling the amount of available knowledge every seven years. And society is also transferring from an industrial base to a service and information base.

Given such an environment, it becomes increasingly important for an informed person to be able to quickly learn and recall knowledge when needed. An individual that can recall a good percentage of concepts from a text after one reading possesses a tremendous competitive advantage over others who may have to review the material two or more times.

    "There are no dead-end jobs. There are only dead-end people." -- Thomas Sowell, writer

    Just as a house cannot stand without a strong foundation, so it is with leadership. To lead, one must study leadership. 

    A common failing of the business schools is to clearly distinguish between the role of manager and leader. Typically, professors teach that leadership is a small subset of management, all you have to do is "mange" people. Ya, sure. .

    It implies that all managers need to do is act like an orchestra director, wave the wand, and beautiful music will come forth. And of course, they assume that people want to be "managed."

    The truth is, people want someone who will lead them, someone they can follow. Instead, they suffer under managers who boss them around and manage them the same way they manage the work.

    Module 1: The Nature of Being a Manager and a Leader


    One of the sources of confusion even in the minds of the business professors, is the difference between functioning as a manager and acting like a leader. Both are critically important roles for those going into business and government. So while there are no lack of educational programs to teach management, there are fewer that focus on leadership.

    Module 2: Choosing the Right Leadership Style

    A style differs from a trait in a very fundamental way. For while traits are difficult (some say impossible) in the short run to change, the choice of a style should be based on the situation (context). Of course, many leaders lack behavioral flexibility, they cannot change their style based on the situation. For example, autocratic leaders are typically stuck, it is the only style they know so they keep using it even when it doesn't make sense. The style one choose in a crisis is different than the one exercises in times of less stress. Knowing what style to choose and when to choose it is an extremely important aspect of leadership.

    Module 3: The Best Leadership Traits

    Edmund Leighton (1853–1922): Duty

    The focus here is on the focus on Expectancy Theory: how what the leader expects and what the followers expect become dominant factors. The focus in on both the expectations and the nature of the situation. Some aspects of this include: defining goals, clarifying the path, removing obstacles and providing support.

    Module 4: Leadership Skills — What to Develop and How to Development Them

    The accounting profession has it work, people are not expenses on the income statement, they are really assets on the balance sheet. And assets appreciate or depreciate. If you want an human assets to appreciate, it's all about growing knowledge and skills. This session looks at the skills and knowledge leaders must build.

    Module 5: What Leaders Must Know About Power and Influence

    For leaders to be effective, they must exert power, they must know how to influence. There are many different types of influence, and it is a smart leader who knows what type of influence to use in what situation. Learn about personal and positional power, selfish and social influence and nine different types of influence that you can cultivate and develop.

    Module 6: Why Followers Follow

    Image: Ali Mansuri

    Leaders don't operate in a vacuum, to understand leaders, you have to focus on followers. They have certain needs that leaders should be aware of, they can even cause a leader to do stupid things. Some followers choose leaders with virtues, others choose those with pathologies. It's important to understand why one is attracted to a certain type of leader since it tells you a great deal about yourself—both your good points and your bad ones.

    Description

    Many people with rotten stress management techniques end up needing professional help. In some cases, this cry for help comes for the ravages of acute stress; in other cases, the health professional is seeing the impact of chronic stress.

    Chronic stress is a contributing factor to conditions such as hypertension (high blood pressure), ulcers, and atherosclerosis (closing of the arteries, typically around the heart.) While acute stress generates anxiety, worry and is associated nasty emotions such as anger.

    The module helps you understand the distress associated with stress.

    Learning Objectives

    • Discover the impact of acute and chronic stress on the body.
    • Know how stress impacts the normal functioning of the mind.
    • Know the relationship between stress, illness and immune suppression.
    • Understand how increasing stress levels impact work performance.

    Application Assignment

    • Produce a personal profile documenting your intellectual, emotional, behavioral, contextual and physiological stress symptoms.

    Module 2: Using the Breath To Relax

    Description:

    For many, there is a vague understanding that when anxious, one breathes faster and shallower. At extreme levels of stress, some start breathing “like a dog” and will even hyperventilate.

    However, the reverse is also true, breathing slowly and deeply relaxes the mind and the body. However, few people understand how to use the breath to relax.

    This module will show you how to use the deep breath technique to quickly relax.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Discover the relationship between the breath and feeling anxious or feeling relaxed.
    • Experiment with slow breathing to control and reduce stress.
    • Practice using the deep breath technique to reduce anxiety.

    Application Assignment

    • Practice using the different variations of the Deep Breath Technique to reduce the impact of stressors in our life.

    Module 3: Mastering the Fine Art of Progressive Relaxation

    Description:

    Stress is associated with a physiological mechanism known as the “fight or flight” response; meditation is associated with the exact opposite mechanism, the relaxation response. So while stress results in anxiety and worry, meditation generates peace and serenity.

    Meditation has been used for thousands of years in the East, but it is relatively new to the West. Since it is relatively new, most people don’t understand its benefits. This module explains the primary benefits for learning meditation. Benefits that include but are not limited to reduction of stress and anxiety.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Understand the physical and psychological benefits associated with the regular practice of meditation.
    • Discover the positive aspect of meditation on the mind and body.
    • Learn the access steps necessary to enter a meditative state.
