Clash of the Generations: Managing the New Workplace Reality Audiobook

Clash of the Generations: Managing the New Workplace Reality

Author: Valerie M. Grubb Narrator: Randye Kaye Release Date: November 2019

Case studies and strategies for more effective multi-generational management Clash of the Generations explores this new and increasingly common workplace phenomenon, and provides strategies to help managers navigate this ever more complex maze. Traditionally, older workers would retire and make room for the next generation; instead, Baby Boomers are now prolonging their time in the workplace, yet the successive generations are still coming in. Senior leaders are now left to manage a blended workplace comprised of up to four generations-each with their own ideas of work ethic, work/life balance, long-term career goals, and much more. Management is challenging at the best of times, but the new prevalence of generation gaps-sometimes even layered-add an entirely new dimension to an already complex responsibility. This book presents case studies and interviews with representatives of companies with age-diverse workforces, detailing innovative strategies for smoothing out the bumps and helping everyone work together. Managers have long wished that their positions came with an instruction manual, and this book delivers with a host of effective inter-generational management strategies illustrated by real-world companies.

Drugs, Money, and Secret Handshakes: The Unstoppable Growth of Prescription Drug Prices Audiobook

Drugs, Money, and Secret Handshakes: The Unstoppable Growth of Prescription Drug Prices

Author: Robin Feldman Narrator: Randye Kaye Release Date: November 2019

In the warped world of prescription drug pricing, generic drugs can cost more than branded ones, old drugs can be relaunched at astronomical prices, and low-cost options are shut out of the market. In Drugs, Money and Secret Handshakes, Robin Feldman shines a light into the dark corners of the pharmaceutical industry to expose a web of shadowy deals in which higher-priced drugs receive favorable treatment and patients are channeled toward the most expensive medicines. At the center of this web are the highly secretive middle players who establish coverage levels for patients and negotiate with drug companies. By offering lucrative payments to these middle players (as well as to doctors and hospitals), drug companies ensure that inexpensive drugs never gain traction. This system of perverse incentives has delivered the kind of exorbitant drug prices-and profits-that everyone loves except for those who pay the bills.

Death of a Wedding Cake Baker Audiobook

Author: Lee Hollis Narrator: Randye Kaye Release Date: November 2019

For Matron of Honor Hayley Powell, catching a half-baked poisoner before her friend's wedding will be icing on the cake . . . Liddy Crawford, best friend of food and cocktails columnist Hayley Powell, is getting married. The wedding is the talk of the town in Bar Harbor, Maine, including snide gossip about the age gap between the bride and her groom, local lawyer Sonny Lipton. But the cruelty of the comments is nothing compared to the nasty wedding cake baker, Liddy's quarrelsome cousin Lisa. So when the belligerent baker is found facedown in a three-tier cake, the victim of a poisoned slice, there are more suspects in town than names on the guest list. With Sonny getting cold feet, Liddy getting hot under the frilly collar of her wedding gown, and a killer possibly crashing the ceremony, Hayley vows to solve the crime before her best friend walks down the aisle . . .

The Unapologetic Saleswoman: Breaking the Barriers, Beating the Odds Audiobook

The Unapologetic Saleswoman: Breaking the Barriers, Beating the Odds

Author: Lorraine Ferguson Narrator: Randye Kaye Release Date: October 2019

This book is for women struggling to succeed in a professional sales role. Based on decades of personal experience as a successful saleswoman and personal coach, author Lorraine Ferguson shares insights and practical how to's for overcoming some of the most common concerns and self-doubts and erasing the negative connotations of selling . . . so you can stop apologizing for doing your job and reach your full potential as a professional saleswoman. Many women have been socialized to believe that being 'good' involves being told by others what to do and what not do, going along with these requests, and apologizing and conceding when there is a conflict or disagreement. These learned scripts don't go away when we find ourselves in front of a buyer; in fact, they feed right into the buyer's system. How? We follow the buyer out of habit and we lose control of the sales process . . . because being led by the buyer feels like being 'good.' We give in to their demands even if they are not in our best interests. When this learned script combines with the typical salesperson's low concept of themselves, it can add up to being steamrolled by the buyer on a sales call. The Unapologetic Saleswoman shows you how to rewrite these internal scripts.

Geeky Pedagogy: A Guide for Intellectuals, Introverts, and Nerds Who Want to Be Effective Teachers

Author: Jessamyn Neuhaus Narrator: Randye Kaye Release Date: October 2019

Geeky Pedagogy is a funny, evidence-based, multidisciplinary, pragmatic, highly accessible guide to the process of learning and relearning how to be an effective college teacher. It is the first college teaching guide that encourages faculty to embrace their inner nerd, inviting listeners to view themselves and their teaching work in light of contemporary discourse that celebrates increasingly diverse geek culture and explores stereotypes about super-smart introverts. Geeky Pedagogy avoids the excessive jargon, humorlessness, and endless proscriptions that plague much published advice about teaching. Neuhaus is aware of how embodied identity and employment status shape one's teaching context, and she eschews formulaic depictions of idealized exemplar teaching, instead inviting listeners to join her in an engaging, critically reflective conversation about the vicissitudes of teaching and learning in higher education as a geek, introvert, or nerd. Written for the wonks and eggheads who want to translate their vast scholarly expertise into authentic student learning, Geeky Pedagogy is packed with practical advice and encouragement for increasing listeners' pedagogical knowledge.

Let the Children Play: How More Play Will Save Our Schools and Help Children Thrive Audiobook

Let the Children Play: How More Play Will Save Our Schools and Help Children Thrive

Author: Pasi Sahlberg, William Doyle Narrator: Randye Kaye Release Date: August 2019

Play is how children explore, discover, fail, succeed, socialize, and flourish. It is a fundamental element of the human condition. It's the key to giving schoolchildren skills they need to succeed-skills like creativity, innovation, teamwork, focus, resilience, expressiveness, empathy, concentration, and executive function. Expert organizations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics, the National Academy of Sciences, and the Centers for Disease Control agree that play and physical activity are critical foundations of childhood, academics, and future skills-yet politicians are destroying play in childhood education and replacing it with standardization, stress, and forcible physical restraint, which are damaging to learning and corrosive to society. But this is not the case for hundreds of thousands of lucky children who are enjoying the power of play in schools in China, Texas, Oklahoma, Long Island, Scotland, and in the entire nation of Finland. In Let the Children Play, Pasi Sahlberg, Finnish educator and scholar, and Fulbright Scholar William Doyle make the case for helping schools and children thrive by unleashing the power of play and giving more physical and intellectual play to all schoolchildren.
