Do you want to regain self-confidence and get free from negative thoughts? Do you also want to enjoy the self-esteem advantages and change your life with self-hypnosis? If yes, then keep reading...Self-esteem is the value people place on themselves. It’s the assessment of one’s self-image as either positive or negative, good or bad. People with a healthy view of themselves tend to be more outgoing and are usually better, if not, more willing to communicate. Whenever they fail at accomplishing a task the first time, they try harder to succeed the second time. And because they are not afraid of communicating, they are more comfortable initiating relationships. They believe that love and kindness expressed by other people toward them are genuine. They value relationships and are not afraid to seek out new ones when the relationships they are currently in tend to be abusive or problematic.On the other hand, people with low self-esteem tend to be more aggressive in the way they communicate. They are more likely to be involved in substance abuse and become sexually active at an early age. Compared to people with healthy self-esteem, they are generally less happy and satisfied with their lives.  Self-esteem is very dynamic and changes through time. It can shift in response to events we experience in life, such as failing a test, getting rejected by our dream company, and so on. When you have poor self-esteem, that can hold you back from achieving your full potential because it causes you to believe that you don’t have what it takes to reach greater heights.What’s interesting is that the way we see ourselves doesn’t only affect us, but also the manner by which we communicate with others. According to studies, our self-esteem interrelates with at least three interpersonal needs that influence the way we communicate: control, inclusion, and affection.  The need for control is what gives us the desire to maintain a level of i 1.

Mathematical Mindsets

Banish math anxiety and give students of all ages a clear roadmap to success Mathematical Mindsets provides practical strategies and activities to help teachers and parents show all children, even those who are convinced that they are bad at math, that they can enjoy and succeed in math. Jo Boaler--Stanford researcher, professor of math education, and expert on math learning--has studied why students don't like math and often fail in math classes. She's followed thousands of students through middle and high schools to study how they learn and to find the most effective ways to unleash the math potential in all students. There is a clear gap between what research has shown to work in teaching math and what happens in schools and at home. This book bridges that gap by turning research findings into practical activities and advice. Boaler translates Carol Dweck's concept of 'mindset' into math teaching and parenting strategies, showing how students can go from self-doubt to strong self-confidence, which is so important to math learning. Boaler reveals the steps that must be taken by schools and parents to improve math education for all. Mathematical Mindsets: Explains how the brain processes mathematics learning Reveals how to turn mistakes and struggles into valuable learning experiences Provides examples of rich mathematical activities to replace rote learning Explains ways to give students a positive math mindset Gives examples of how assessment and grading policies need to change to support real understanding Scores of students hate and fear math, so they end up leaving school without an understanding of basic mathematical concepts. Their evasion and departure hinders math-related pathways and STEM career opportunities. Research has shown very clear methods to change this phenomena, but the information has been confined to research journals--until now. Mathematical Mindsets provides a proven, practical roadmap to mathematics success for any student at any age.

In this pathbreaking work, Edward S. Herman and Noam Chomsky show that, contrary to the usual image of the news media as cantankerous, obstinate, and ubiquitous in their search for truth and defense of justice, in their actual practice they defend the economic, social, and political agendas of the privileged groups that dominate domestic society, the state, and the global order. Based on a series of case studies-including the media's dichotomous treatment of "worthy" versus "unworthy" victims, "legitimizing" and "meaningless" Third World elections, and devastating critiques of media coverage of the U.S. wars against Indochina-Herman and Chomsky draw on decades of criticism and research to propose a Propaganda Model to explain the media's behavior and performance. Their new introduction updates the Propaganda Model and the earlier case studies, and it discusses several other applications. These include the manner in which the media covered the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement and subsequent Mexican financial meltdown of 1994-1995, the media's handling of the protests against the World Trade Organization, World Bank, and International Monetary Fund in 1999 and 2000, and the media's treatment of the chemical industry and its regulation. What emerges from this work is a powerful assessment of how propagandistic the U.S. mass media are, how they systematically fail to live up to their self-image as providers of the kind of information that people need to make sense of the world, and how we can understand their function in a radically new way.

Better Than Normal: How What Makes You Differen...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A groundbreaking new view of human psychology that shows how eight key traits of human behavior—long perceived as liabilities—can be important hidden strengths. What if the inattentiveness that makes school or work a challenge holds the secret to your future as an entrepreneur? What if the shyness in groups that you hate is the source of deep compassion for others? What if the anxiety and nervousness you often feel can actually help energize you? What if the mood swings you sometimes experience can be the source of tremendous creativity? Renowned psychiatrist and popular on-air personality Dr. Dale Archer believes that labels for behavior like “ADHD”, “bipolar”, and “OCD” are normal human qualities—and contends that we all experience these and other psychological traits to some extent, yet fail to leverage the significant advantages they can offer. Worse, we stigmatize one another for these prevalent, widely shared aspects of our personalities. In Better Than Normal, Dr. Archer offers an empowering framework for redefining what constitutes mental health. Drawing on his 20 years of clinical experience, he describes eight traits of human behavior—heretofore knownonly as psychiatric diagnoses. Each of these occurs along a continuum rather than as a simple on-off switch (where “off ” means we’re fine, and “on” means we’ve got a problem). These are the aspects of our personality that we worry about the most, but these are also the very things that make us distinctive and different.According to Dr. Archer, each of us has a unique personality that emerges from our hardwired genetics and individual life experiences. With Better Than Normal, you can map your individual characteristics by taking the eight-trait self-assessment quiz and see how what makes you different can indeed make you exceptional. Filled with engaging anecdotes and practical tools to help you capitalize on your unique characteristics, Better Than Normal o 1. Language: English. Narrator: Marc Cashman.

Pragmatic Insights for Successfully Managing Your Unique Agile Team or Organization In many organizations, management is the biggest obstacle to successful Agile development.

Drawing on his extensive experience as an Agile manager and trainer, Appelo identifies the most valuable elements of Agile management, and helps you improve each of them. Coverage includes Getting beyond "Management 1.0" command hierarchies, and "Management 2.0" fads Understanding how complexity and non-linearity affect your organization-and why the best-laid plans so often fail Giving teams the care and feeding they need to grow on their own Defining boundaries and constraints, so teams can succeed in alignment with company goals Anticipating issues teams won't or can't resolve by themselves Sowing the seeds for a culture of software craftsmanship Keeping your people active, creative, motivated, and energized Helping teams develop crucial missing skills and disciplines Crafting organizational networks and communication flows that promote success Making change desirable-and making stagnation painful Implementing continuous improvement that actually works Thoroughly pragmatic-and never trendy-Jurgen Appelo's Management 3.0 will help you bring greater agility to any software organization, team, or project.
