The Monk of Mokha” is the third in his series of real-life accounts of immigrants to America caught in the jaws of history. In the book, Mokhtar Alkhanshali is a doorman at a posh apartment building, where he spends his days waving in chandelier repairmen and pet nutritionists. Dave Eggers chronicles Alkhanshali’s headstrong, harrowing and ultimately inspirational journey to begin a business in a country descending into civil war. The book also goes into a concise history of coffee and its roots in Yemen, reports on a coffee culture where consumers can be as demanding as sommeliers, and sketches out the strife that has devastated Yemen since 2011’s Arab e story weaves through all of these elements with Alkhanshali establishing his own business brining all of these threads together. For folks who have read and liked “What Is the What” and “Zeitoun, this is sure to please.
It's always fun to analyze oneself. This book goes one step further and recommends types of people with whom one should partner. It's obvious that a shy person should partner with an outgoing person; a creative type with a business mind. But it's a amazing reminder.
Strengths Finders is an perfect method to support managers understand the strengths of their direct reports and for peers to understand each other. This is a fast and simple assessment and all of my staff found that the report of their top 5 strengths nailed their attitudes and abilities. I had my managers each read the first section of the book, then take the assessment, and then I compiled the results into a matrix and had them read only those sections that applied to the strengths that were identified on the team. This allowed us to avoid reading 40% of the strengths, since none of us had them. That created the exercise fun, fast, and useful. At this Amazon price, you can't go wrong for an inexpensive method to uplift your squad and learn how better to work together.
It's difficult to use it won't allow you upload pictures on your device. It stops working in the middle of doing your questions. I'll obtain an respond filled out in detail and go to send it and then it won't even work, stopped responding. Very frustrating.
This application is the worst. It is constantly force closing and it takes all day to load. even though it says take pic or video it dosent work only works with the videos u have already taken. They're have been 3 updates on the week I have had it and none of them have done any good. I cannot wait until my research group is over. I hope I never have to use this again
Freezes, does update, having to Uninstall and re install to create it work. I like the layout and the color but now whenever I begin the application it's black and can barely read and respond the questions. Also I've been told by a lot of users that it doesn't work well on iPhone well I have an android... so it's not just iphones
Here's what you need to know about StrengthsFinder 2.0:- Buy the book new. Each copy contains a scratch off passcode that gives you access to the StrengthsFinder 2.0 test. It can only be used once and the book is a waste without the test.- The book itself is largely a description of the strengths measured by the test. It's a companion to the try and not something you wold read on its own, but it does a amazing job of bringing the try to life.- The try is worth the price of admission. It's 177 rapid-fire questions that reveal the top five themes, or strengths associated with your personality. Knowing these strengths is critical, because they are unchangeable traits that will enable you to succeed to your fullest potential.- I also purchased the Amazon recommended Emotional Intelligence 2.0. I enjoyed it immensely as well.
I loved this movie. The attractive Anna Wilding captures the essence of joy with effortless flair. Beautifully filmed, one walks away from Buddha Wild with vivid, memorable photos etched in their mind. I have actually watched this film, end to end, four times. Each time, I come away with small info I didn't catch before. A amazing introduction for anyone first discovering Asian cultures, and equally satisfying for those well versed in Buddhism. It plays brilliantly on the huge screen, but is also compelling on DVD.
This book is phenomenal at making you aware of both yourself and your surroundings. This should be needed reading for leaders, managers and executives. Taken seriously, this book can support you evaluate yourself and reveal ways to grow and develop in ways you may not have ever considered. Simple to read and succinct. Amazing book!
I couldn't even make an acc with this application because it says my identification failed, even though I checked 5 FREAKING TIMES to create sure everything was correct! And nothing, it just keeps saying identity failed, so until it gets fixed where I can actually even use the app, it sucks!
Right now I am very dissatisfied. I had a fraudulent charge on my debit card acc and i go to check it out to see what it is sole paycard suspends my card where i cannot use it plus i also obtain charged $10 for a fresh card plus $$3.00 for every call i create to test to resolve my issues. I also requested they transfer my balance and my paycheck to another accoynt which they failed to do resulting in expensive late fees on my rent payment cause i have yet to keep fresh card which just got sent out.
WORST CARD EVER!!!!! Cancel ASAP for real. Just look at the fee schedule and you will see how much of a cash scam this company is. They charge you $3 for HELPING YOU ON THE PHONE for Christ Sake. That is nothing compared to their lovely $2.95 charge to use an ATM! ON TOP OF THE ATM fee that it normally already has. I called to cancel and I was worried they would charge me for that, thank goodness they said they can waive it, HA! This card is a joke, they even asked who my fresh employer was and I said ehhh no I am not telling you. ALSO if you do not cancel this card it WILL INCUR FEES. I transferred my WHOLE balance and cancelled this stupid card. The rep demanded my WHOLE SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER to access my account, not even just the latest four like one would expect to confirm the identity since she already had my name, birth date, and whole address ffs. This is so ridiculous I actually [email protected]#$%! was a easy paper check I can upload by the app(for free!) with my Logix bank. (Best federal bank ever btw!)
