"At once profound, spiritual, and witty, Master of the Three Ways is a remarkable work about human nature, the essence of life, and how to live simply and with awareness. In three hundred and fifty-seven verses, the author, Hung Ying-ming a seventeenth-century Chinese sage explores good and evil, honesty and deception, wisdom and foolishness, and heaven and hell. He draws from the wisdom of the Three Creeds Taoism, Confucianism, and Zen Buddhism to impress upon us that by combining simple elegance with the ordinary, we can make our lives artistic and poetic. This sense, along with a particular understanding of Zen that makes art from the simple in everyday life, has permeated Chinese and Japanese culture to this day. The work is divided into two books. The first generally deals with the art of living in society and the second is concerned with man's solitude and contemplations of nature. These themes repeatedly spill over into each other, creating multiple levels of meaning."

• Highly effective strategies that help people and businesses succeed using the five elements of water, air, earth, fire, and ether. • The five elements represent emotion, mind, body, drive, and soul. • Presents case studies from Seivert's organizational and executive clients in financial services, health care, government, academics, technology, retail, and marketing. • The unique tools in The Balancing Act can be applied equally well to businesses, families, or personal relationships. Have you ever had one of those days when everything went right? When the initiatives you started at work came together like clockwork, when a family outing seemed like fun and not labor, when you and that special someone felt your relationship taking off under its own power? Those times were not accidental. They happen when the key elements of any system--a business, a family, a relationship--come into balance, and then function in a state of synergy where the whole becomes much more than the sum of the parts. In The Balancing Act, consultant and personal coach Sharon Seivert shows how you can create this magical state of affairs in your life, love, and work on a daily basis. Starting with an extensive questionnaire that lets you evaluate the health of your business, relationships, and self, Seivert teaches you how to recognize which of the five traditional elements that make up any system are in balance and which need more of your attention. Exercises and tips for nourishing each element demonstrate how you can take a proactive role in bringing your life successfully into a state of balanced harmony.

Relevant to today's complex sales environment, where the customers are more knowledgeable, aware and demand the best value for their money,Next-Step Sellingprovides a clear, workable and realistic diagnostic tool that may be applied to the majority of sales environments and products, goods or services. In today's cost sensitive business environment, retaining and nurturing existing customer relationships is more effective than focusing energies on gaining new customers, so complex selling is more critical. John Barker teaches the salesperson how to sell, not only the product, but also the organization and themselves and illustrates how to differentiate a product from the multitude of competitors by intangible 'separation factors'. The book is divided into three key sections and provides a workable view of the 'Next-Step' selling technique. The first section offers a new approach to selling while the second section covers the nine key sales elements (planning, prospecting, relationship, needs, positioning, follow-up, barriers, closing and negotiation). The final section covers bringing the process to life with essential sales skills.
