Deaver Brown Conflict Resolution builds on positive approaches to support other people and build bridges to reach a satisfactory solution for all parties. This audiobook encourages you to accept conflict as a normal part of everyone's life, so you can move on productively to deal with it, rather than get depressed by the presence of conflict in your life and work. The author employs Justice William Douglas's thoughts as a platform for conflict resolution: "A good agreement can be either mutually satisfactory or unsatisfactory. The key is that all parties share equally in those beliefs and feelings."
The approach involves calmly and dispassionately discussing the pros, cons, and interesting points about a problem, such as Edward DeBono suggests in his landmark book about PMI (Plus, Minus, and Interesting Point) Thinking. This audiobook builds on the experience of our author in writing and narrating Sell Anything, Negotiate Anything, Finance Anything, and the Legal Survival Kit to present the best approaches to resolving conflicts to your advantage, including personal, family, job, and organizational ones. The approach is intended to help people analyze their options, get them focused on what is best for them and everyone else, and then move to a mutually satisfactory or unsatisfactory conclusion.
The audiobook uses the Middle East Conflict as a subject to practice and use your new skills on, emphasizing that you should not take sides but rather develop and present the best options for the parties, leaving it up to them to decide what to do. Your practice in developing options dispassionately on this kind of subject will help you do so with others when you are involved directly or indirectly.
Deaver Brown This audiobook uses a flash card system to teach new and renewing drivers what they need to know in order to pass the CDL as well as be better drivers. Listeners can use this to study while driving or at home. The book was suggested by a long-distance driver, Nathan Huckaby, who needed an audiobook to help him refresh his memory for his latest renewal test. The tracks listed here describe the contents of this audiobook, including bonus features relating to equipment to carry, extra definitions, and common-sense rules. The audiobook was created by a CDL holder who found his license invaluable to get jobs, pitch in as a backup driver at his companies, and make traffic cops like him better when stopped.
Deaver Brown This is the second in this series of Core Words. After learning the first 100, this audiobook has the core 500 words used in the SATs and GREs over the last 50 years. This audiobook is best used after the Core 100 words are mastered so as not to intimidate the student.
The first audiobook is quick and brief, just focusing on the core knowledge needed for doing well in this area of the test as well as becoming a better reader and writer. Choate learned that the first step in learning a subject should be an easy accessible one. Most Test Prep books strut across the stage with length and depth that is intimidating to anyone from a Ph.D. on down. Imagine the negative impact on a high school student? Less is more in the early steps of learning. Later the students can expand their knowledge if not crushed in the first contact with it.
If this simple approach was good enough to help Choate students get into Harvard, it should be good for the rest of us! Enjoy. It's fun to test oneself on these words, no matter your purpose for doing so. This is a perfect listen on the way to school, work, or the test itself!

Deaver Brown Being the Boss starts and ends with doing the work. The role models should be Jack Welch, ex-CEO of GE; Steve Jobs at Apple; and Jeff Bezos at Amazon. They get out in front of the work and lead the charge. Only then do they assess their talent to see who to enlist to help them. This audiobook emphasizes that, even if you get the boss job because you get along with people, have leadership skills, or network well, the key is doing the work - getting the job done. And checking with your boss to be sure you are doing exactly what he or she wants. Once a day is not too often.
"Boss, am I focused on what you want me to be?" Few say it; hard to get very off course if you keep calibrating, says the author. The author suggests exactly what you should do on each day in week one and in your second week of bossing. Don't sit back and assess, he advises, as so many people do. Get after it, get things done, and enlist those you need to support your efforts, both people reporting to you and those that don't, inside and outside your organization.
Lou Gerstner, when he became IBM's CEO, famously started by talking to customers: "What do you want? What can we do better?" He scheduled 40% of his time with customers. And lhe eft a can do, get it done, sales VP in charge as CEO when he left.
The work always starts with the customer, the author points out. Start there. And he provides interesting tips about how to deal with the people reporting to you: keep the ones that can help; return the ones that can't to HR, but keep them in your budget until HR can place them elsewhere or eliminate them. Don't harm people; just move them out. And quickly. You should get this done by Friday of your first week when still in your honeymoon period with your boss. The author says he has never met an effective CEO or boss who said he or she acted too quickly in removing people. But, and this is a big but, don't harm them. Move them to HR; keep them on the budget; suppor...

Deaver Brown Guaranteed to give the student a solid core list of words for the SATs. Unlike most SAT prep courses, this short concise audiobook is laser focused on the words themselves. It does not wear down and intimidate the student with length and breadth. This list was first developed at Choate, the distinguished American preparatory school with a wide range of graduates ranging from Adlai Stevenson and John F. Kennedy to Edward Albee and the actor Michael Douglas. Choate had a long honored tradition of not only getting its graduates into Harvard, Yale, and Princeton, but also having over 75% of them graduate in the top half of those classes. Choate, along with Andover and Exeter, were the only schools that the Harvard Admission Office would predict their students would have a higher grade point than at their high school.
It is from this tradition of laser focused learning that this SAT prep audiobook comes. The words were first put forth by a legendary teacher, John Joseph, as the core 100. "Get these right and we can move on; but first get these memorized." As the audiobook says, Choate had the confidence to start simply with a foundation in a subject before moving to greater efforts. This is such an audiobook.
The SAT words have remained largely the same over 50 years. A comparison to other texts indicates that about 98% of the words have been the same over this period, as an educated listener would expect. After this basic non-intimidating approach, a student can move on to the SAT and GRE 500 Words. But first start at the beginning.
With the Core 100 words students will enjoy the speed at which they master this foundation of the language without having to wade through a long audiobook to get to this core knowledge. The very shortness encourages students to relisten to master this core subject.
