Free Learning and Publications

~ 100 buzzes
There's tons of free publications, books and learning resources available on the net. Some of it is promotional, some of it is there in its entirety, whether it's an online MOOC, a book chapter or entire book, and so on.

Since I make available a ton of free chapters and mini-guides, I thought: "Why not create a hive so we can share with each other".

Feel free to use this to promote your free publications, sample chapters, and so on, but please respect others by not inundating this hive with junk, or posting too often.

Please upload material that belongs to you, or is available legally (no links to or uploads of copyright material)

Take what you like, and if you like it, share the original post, or the hive.

    Of special interest to women, this is a book excerpt.

    Working women today are better educated and more well qualified than ever before. Yet men still predominate in the corporate world. In The Confidence Code, Claire Shipman and Katty Kay argue that the key reason is confidence.

    Combining cutting-edge research in genetics, gender, behavior, and cognition—with examples from their own lives and those of other successful women in politics, media, and business—Kay and Shipman go beyond admonishing women to “lean in.” Instead, they offer the inspiration and practical advice women need to close the gap and achieve the careers they want and deserve.

    The reasons that traditional performance management no longer works varies from the academic (the traditional model is based on an archaic view of worker performance) to the everyday (it's viewed as a hassle and time drain that doesn't truly benefit the employee, the manager, or the organization).

    Why the traditional method of performance management doesn't work and what's changing
    The key components for an organization to understand to begin implementing performance management innovation

    #1 Good question, @Angelique Austin. The answer often depends on the specific WAY the person does that -- if s/he says certain things, the positive response is one thing, and it changes depending on what the other person says.

    So, if you give me an example, I can try to answer with some constructive responses?

    Free: Ultimate Guide To Behavioral Assessments

    People-related issues can tear at the fabric of a company, eating away at even the most solid foundation built on the best products or services. On the talent acquisition front, making a bad hire can cost you through potential earnings, replacement costs, ineffectiveness, or worse, as a drain on morale.

    From a management perspective, a dearth of leaders or ineffective leadership can result in stagnant growth, bungled initiatives, and even corporate collapse. Attrition, team dysfunction, failed acquisitions or strategic initiatives, and lack of productivity are all directly attributable to lack of leadership, mismanagement of people, and/or not putting the right people in the right roles.

    Great title, great cover photo. Here's a free excerpt from this book on leadership.

    This book is volume two of the Why Leadership Sucks series and is divided into four sections.

    Part one deals broadly with the topic of service, exploring the choices we make in terms of whether to serve or not to serve. Part two focuses on setting aside your ego to do what’s best for the team. Part three focuses on humility by avoiding persona non grata (being an unwelcome person). Part four applies these concepts to the organizational world: demonstrating how to get results in specific situations,despite fierce marketplace competition.

Forbes calls Pinterest the third most popular social networking site (after Facebook and Twitter).
