In this must-have resource, Dr. Joseph Shrand offers seven innovative yet remarkably uncomplicated strategies to help turn powerful anger impulses into positive, success-oriented actions. These brain-based techniques teach you how to recognize the many forms of anger we all experience, and how to tap into your brain's very own anger absorption zone the prefrontal cortex. Dr. Shrand also explores the ways these techniques can be used to harness the anger of others.

The narrative of the Dr was fake. I felt like I'm a child and he's telling me a story. It impacted my ability to listen. The others who were talking normal were much better. The content was not rich and a lot of repetitions.

A scientist's exploration into the mysteries of the human mind. Neuroscience studies the brain, but what does science have to say about the mind? A full examination of what we mean by the term "mind" has traditionally been the province of philosophers, but what might neuroscience teach us about it? How does the mind differ from consciousness? And how do we know who we really are?

From everyday stress to severe trauma, many obstacles to a full life can be overcome by developing what Dr. Daniel J. Siegel calls "mindsight," our ability to perceive the mind and literally redirect the flow of energy and information within our brains. Through this powerful capacity for insight and empathy, we can "rewire" crucial connections, create dynamic linkages, and open ourselves to relationships in a new way.

What is the one skill that the world's most successful leaders, athletes, and businesspeople have in common? And, more importantly, how can you harness this skill to achieve greater success, fulfillment, and well-being in your business and personal lives? New research reveals that resilience - more than IQ - is a key factor in determining your success and well-being at work as well as in your relationships. In fact studies show that people with higher levels of resilience have higher productivity, better health, greater morale, higher job satisfaction, and lower stress.

By letting go of your ego, you will not only feel like a completely different person, but will also empower your life in every way possible. There are many misconceptions about the human ego. Some tie an over-reaching ego to success, arrogance, and other behaviors. Is it that simple? Ego is really the sum of the false ideas that we have about self. These beliefs are formed early in life, reside in the subconscious, and have an incredibly strong influence on our thoughts, actions, and emotions.

Anyone can manage IT employees. Due to the fact that the employees have agreed to work for the company, as their manager you hold the ability to fire them in your hands. If they don't do what you tell them to do, you have the right to terminate them. That's management, not leadership. This audiobook will provide you with numerous examples of good leadership. I'll be showing you the skills and talents that IT leaders must have in order to do a good job of motivating their team.

Jealousy can invade every relationship, whether it be with husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, family or friends. If we love others and need their love in return we can all suffer from the pain of jealousy. Dr Hauck believes jealousy is a self-defeating emotion which drives away the love we crave. He explains what makes us feel jealous, and shows us how we can control it.
