Talk To Me - Workplace Conversations That Work (Paperback): Sue Johnston Talk To Me - Workplace Conversations That Work (Paperback)
Sue Johnston
R441 Discovery Miles 4 410 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

A mission-critical project is spinning out of control. Failure will mean lost customers, lost revenues, lost prestige for a venerable financial institution and - no doubt - lost jobs. Can anyone or anything save it? When Paul Hunchak is invited to take on the task of bringing Project Delta back on track, the first thing he does is update his r sum . Saying no to the quirky CEO would be a career limiting move. Saying yes looked just as bad. A not-so-chance encounter with a neighbourhood barista induces him to take a chance, take the assignment and take on the real problems with the project and the organization.
"Talk To Me: Workplace Conversations That Work" follows the adventures of a reluctant hero as he strives to make sense of the nonsense. Join Paul as he discovers how the way we talk affects the way we work. You'll learn breakthrough techniques to end the habits that lead to miscommunication and misunderstanding.
Part novel, part how-to manual, "Talk To Me" weaves practical lessons around a story of one man's experiment in helping his team to use the most powerful business tool we will ever have - conversation. The book examines ideas emerging from such studies as positive psychology, social and emotional intelligence, neuroscience, and coaching.
What others are saying:
"Sue Johnston has turned the explication of effective workplace communication strategies into a page-turning narrative that I couldn't put down. Both practical and passionate, this is a story that will make you think about the power of self-awareness, listening, learning and being positive - the cornerstones of communications that deliver business - and personal - results. A must-read whether you work in a corporate environment or the local caf ." - Debbie Weil, CEO of Voxie Media and author of "The Corporate Blogging Book."
"Sue Johnston has done a masterful job with her book, "Talk to Me: Workplace Conversations that Work." Using an engaging story that runs throughout the book, Sue shows us how conversations are business tools, and essential ingredients to success within an organization. Of particular usefulness are the notes at the end of each chapter, with questions and activities for reinforcing what we've learned as we progress through the book. All of us can do a better job of communicating at home, at work, with friends and family and in our volunteer roles. Talk to Me can help " - Donna Papacosta, Trafalgar Communications.
"In her new book, Sue Johnston captures a key area that is critical to business and often missed by leaders. At a time when we are experiencing a massive leadership crisis in organizations and everyone is feeling overwhelmed by social tools, this book is a gift to help us get back to basics. Two way-conversations are key to implementing strategy and reaching goals. It's not about the "meeting in a box" or "frequently asked questions." Sue helps us understand that what we need most is to make sure that employees have the information they need to be effective in their jobs. A definite must read for every manager with helpful tips that you can use right away." - Ayelet Baron, VP, Strategy and Transformation, Cisco Canada

Sue Johnstone-Wilder, Clare S. Lee
R501 Discovery Miles 5 010 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The book deals with important matters around leading a mathematics department, and some approaches to dealing with those matters, in ways which promote reflection and enquiry as a route to excellence. There is a movement toward building a successful cadre of mathematics teachers led by the NCETM and subject associations reflected in the new Chartered Mathematics Teacher qualification and masters in leadership for new and aspiring heads of department. This book is born of this movement, and deals with some of the issues that new and aspiring heads of department will have to address as they start on this endeavour. In order to compile this book, the authors invited respected mathematics educators and theorists to contribute, asking them to be very clear that they were 'putting theory into practice' for subject leaders in mathematics. Many of the authors work alongside current leaders of mathematics departments and the others are actively engaged in schools or with teachers of mathematics. A stimulating read for all current and aspiring heads of department.

'Beginning and established teachers of mathematics as well as teacher educators will all find this book a rich resource when focusing on the crucial issue of designing and using tasks to provoke real learning in mathematics. It has become a central feature of our PGCE course in mathematics'. David Wright, Tutor in mathematics education, University of Newcastle Mathematics seems, on the face of it, a cut and dried subject. But does being able to 'do' mathematics mean being competent at techniques? Understanding how ideas and techniques fit together? Using basic principles in problem-solving? Something else.or all of these? Designing and Using Mathematical Tasks addresses these questions by thinking about learning as transformation in the way that learners perceive or think. By being given appropriate tasks, learners increase their choice of actions and develop their powers to think mathematically. They also develop their competence and fluency in using specific techniques and language and their appreciation of how ideas fit together. Contents include: . Introduction: learning, teaching and behaviour: theory and practice . Mathematical topics . Mathematical tasks . Mathematical activity . Interaction . Progression in mathematics This book forms part of the Open University course ME825

'There was a lot that we kept from my mother. My dad would say to me as a teenager "Don't tell your mother." We couldn't face the disapproval.' Sue Johnston always seemed to be disappointing her mother. As a girl she never stayed clean and tidy like her cousins. As she grew older, she spent all her piano lesson money on drinks for her mates down the pub, and when she discovered the Cavern she was never at home. The final straw was when Sue left her steady job at a St Helens factory to try her hand at that unsteadiest of jobs: acting. Yet when Sue was bringing up her own child alone, her mother was always there to help. And playing her much-loved characters Sheila Grant and Barbara Royle - although her mum wouldn't say she was proud as such, she certainly seemed to approve. And in her mother's final months, it was Sue she needed by her side. The relationship with your mother is perhaps the most precious and fraught of any woman's life. When she began writing, Sue set out to record 'all the big things, and all the small things. Everything I wanted to tell my mother but felt I never could'. The result is a warm, poignant and often very funny memoir by one of our favourite actresses.

All prospective, new and experienced teachers of mathematics can use it to transform their teaching. All readers can use it to reignite their fascination with mathematics' - Professor Sylvia Johnson, Sheffield Hallam University 'This book exudes activity and interactivity. Moreover, it provides challenge in the context of a significant pedagogy, one that is not just present but actually made explicit. It is undoubtedly a book to learn geometry with, but also one to learn to think more deeply about geometry, about its nature and essence, and also about its teaching and learning' - David Pimm Developing Thinking in Geometry enables teachers and their support staff to experience and teach geometric thinking. As well as discussing key teaching principles, the book and accompanying interactive CD include many activities that encourage readers to extend their own learning, and consequently their teaching practices.
