Communication For Change Management: Mastering Communication To Architect Change

$15.99

Are you familiar with any of the statements below:“I was baffled about the changes in my company.”“Management fail to communicate the reason for the change.” “I offered my feedback, but my manager did not take me seriously.”“I heard about the changes via the grave vine.”“I have problems communicating with my team.”“My employees are not buying into the changes.”Sadly, when companies promote people into a management position and do not provide the necessary training, they end up with a host of bosses who have significant problems communicating with their team. From my research, 60% of new managers underperform in their first two years resulting in increased performance gaps, an uninspired workforce and a significantly high rate of employee turnover. Many managers and leaders have a significant problem communicating effectively with their team, and as a result, their team suffers, and their organization becomes a very toxic place to work. Change is hard for many people, and quite frankly people don’t like change. As the leader, you must understand the crucial role communication plays in your organization especially during a change because it will determine if your change is a success or a complete failure. This book will help all leaders (existing, new and upcoming) understand why communicating the “why” of the change is so essential, the various communication channels one can use to deliver their message, how to segment their communication and many, many more. This book will help any leader from any sector create an excellent organization, and in the process help all leaders become great communicators.

Mindset: The New Psychology of Success

$8.55

The updated edition of the book that has changed millions of lives with its insights into the growth mindset. After decades of research, world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D., discovered a simple but groundbreaking idea: the power of mindset. In this brilliant book, she shows how success in school, work, sports, the arts, and almost every area of human endeavor can be dramatically influenced by how we think about our talents and abilities. People with a fixed mindset—those who believe that abilities are fixed—are less likely to flourish than those with a growth mindset—those who believe that abilities can be developed. Mindset reveals how great parents, teachers, managers, and athletes can put this idea to use to foster outstanding accomplishment. In this edition, Dweck offers new insights into her now famous and broadly embraced concept. She introduces a phenomenon she calls false growth mindset and guides people toward adopting a deeper, truer growth mindset. She also expands the mindset concept beyond the individual, applying it to the cultures of groups and organizations. With the right mindset, you can motivate those you lead, teach, and love—to transform their lives and your own. Praise for Mindset“A good book is one whose advice you believe. A great book is one whose advice you follow. This is a book that can change your life, as its ideas have changed mine.”—Robert J. Sternberg, co-author of Teaching for Wisdom, Intelligence, Creativity, and Success “An essential read for parents, teachers [and] coaches . . . as well as for those who would like to increase their own feelings of success and fulfillment.”—Library Journal (starred review) “Everyone should read this book.”—Chip Heath and Dan Heath, authors of Made to Stick “One of the most influential books ever about motivation.”—Po Bronson, author of NurtureShock “If you manage people or are a parent (which is a form of managing people), drop everything and read Mindset.”—Guy Kawasaki, author of The Art of the Start 2.0

Retention Point: The Single Biggest Secret to Membership and Subscription Growth for Associations, SAAS, Publishers…

$9.97

Membership Growth Comes From Retention, Not From Getting New MembersMy name is Robert Skrob, I help membership and subscriptions grow by stopping members from quitting. I do that by getting more of your members to the Retention Point faster. You know those members who love you, buy everything you offer and tell all their friends about you? Those members have made it to the Retention Point. And, when you do what I show you how to do in the book, you’ll get MORE of your members to the Retention Point so you can keep them longer and your recurring revenue will grow. Membership is a great business model in concept. You get a customer and each time your customer renews you get recurring revenue. But, even though I’d become a membership marketing expert I soon discovered it doesn’t matter how many new members you get if your members quit as fast as new members join. I just got off the phone with a prospective client for the first time. His team is generating more than 10,000 new members a month. That’s awesome, a great effort and commendable result that’s getting his company featured in many subscription industry profiles. What isn’t getting featured is this same company is losing 9500 members each month. This means they spend 95% of all of their marketing efforts replacing members that quit. Twenty-seven days of each month are spent replacing canceled members. Their marketing department has thirty days of monthly expenses but delivers only three days of growth.If you know of anyone that’s in this position, or if you are in this position, I’m revealing more than 25 years of membership growth experience in this new book called Retention Point, The Single Biggest Secret to Membership and Subscription Growth for Associations, SAAS, Publishers, Digital Access, Subscription Boxes and all Membership and Subscription-Based Businesses.When you get your hands on this book you’ll discover:• The five fallacies of membership retention that most subscription businesses implement that actually INCREASE member churn rates.• Five case studies of subscription business turnarounds (or successful launches) including a publisher, a subscription box, SAAS, an association and a charity/nonprofit.• The 10 Retention Point Accelerators that transform your new members from Quitters into Lifers. • How to achieve 90% to 98% annual renewal percentages, even if you believe this is completely impossible for your business.• The single biggest misunderstanding subscription companies believe that kills membership growth.Plus a whole lot more, when you get Retention Point.
