Publisher's Summary

How can you help your youngster's college education pay off in productive, meaningful employment - even when disability is involved? Growing in emotional intelligence is the key. It's the foundation for learning to live and work well with a disability. And, it's probably an attribute few people pick up on their own while in school. That means your youngster needs a little help from you, as a parent-mentor, to supplement his or her formal education.

In Little Book 4, Jim Hasse, who has athetoid cerebral palsy and served for 10 years as a Fortune 500 vice president during his 29-year career in corporate communication, outlines seven not-so-difficult things that you and your youngster can practice together for expanding emotional intelligence, the foundation for learning to live and work well with a disability.

Time is short. And times are uncertain. But now is the right time for helping your son or daughter develop time-tested interpersonal attributes for handling the challenges he or she will likely face in the transition from school to work.

In this transformation book, Jim, a Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF), illustrates each of his seven bits of career advice with a transformation story from his own experiences. For each short story, he defines the issue at hand for learning how to live and work well with a disability, shows how his parents and others helped him personally resolve the situation, and provides a potential path you can follow as a mentor for your own youngster.

So, get up to speed as the mentor you need to be as your youngster transitions from school to work!

This is Jim's fourth self-help book in his seven-part Little Book series of transformation stories.

Download Little Book 4 now to complete some of the final but vital phases of your journey as a parent who knows how to constructively mentor your son or daughter from an emotional intelligence perspective.

Life Lessons for All

These insights fall into two broad categories: disability inclusion and career development. As such, they speak to disabled and non-disabled alike who are going through the pains of finding themselves. This content is so relevant and important for a more informed and inclusive world-view.

Jim shares needed insights

If only our young adults had the insight and ability to share with us what they are experiencing on the inside while putting those feelings in the context of what is needed to help them succeed in our world. Jim shares his emotions and how he was able to use those feelings to overcome the difficulties that cerebral palsy gave him to become successful. His stories are gripping. Then he uses these personal stories to clearly provide guidance for helping young adults with cerebral palsy find their own successes.

Uneasy Issues Uncovered

Innocent stories such as these often uncover uneasy issues, some of which we need to tackle if we are to handle disability in a mature fashion. A fascinating audiobook that is well done.

Candid Look Back at Both Warts and Wins

In this audiobook, Jim has had the courage to honestly look back on his life, identify both warts and wins and share them candidly with us. As a result, we are able to recognize our own previously-hidden-but-doable roadmap of life, even though it may be (like Jim’s) a zig-zag journey. Jim shows such a journey, despite disability’s level of severity, can ultimately lead to a sense of discovery, self-determination and independence. A “must listen” for volunteers, coaches, professionals, parents, mentors, students and caregivers within the disability community because it raises awareness and propels possibility for us all.
