Designed to introduce and promote the use of case studies and strategic intentional interviews into the growing and developing of present and future youth workers, Learn Before You Leap provides an argument for the use of “problem centered learning” strategies that are common practices in the areas of the social sciences, leadership and business but not yet publicly developed or resourced in the growing field of youth ministry education. Learn Before You Leap also: Helps new youth workers process situations they’ll encounter through role play. Enables veteran youth workers to keep sharp and mentor younger youth workers and volunteers. Uses Problem Based Learning to help promote critical thinking and problem solving in the youth ministry context. Discusses the value and strategies for using interviews as a ministry development tool. Includes ten case studies each addressing issues common to youth ministry organized by topical focus and a fully developed interview worksheet on the given topic—appropriate to a formal class room setting, an online threaded discussion, an informal youth ministry network lunch, a one-on-one internship discussion over coffee, or an individual reading.

Are you planning on studying law, or in the process of it? How certain are you that law school is going to prepare you adequately for your legal career? Chances are it won't. How much do you know about what you're getting yourself in for? Learn from the experience of others in this book, and find out what legal practice is really like before you get too far down the track! The reality is that Law School will arm you with technical legal skills, but even the most dedicated Universities are not providing Law Students with the information they need to make good career decisions from the start. Similarly, the amount of information available to Senior School Students thinking about studying a Law Degree is pretty pathetic. If you're lucky, you might know a lawyer who is prepared to disgorge everything they know - but many people aren't so lucky or don't care to ask in case they look silly. This book is specifically designed to provide real world information about legal practice. It includes discussions about money, promotion, character traits of good lawyers, and the pros and cons of legal practice. If you're considering studying law at law school and embarking on a legal career - then this book is for you!

A compilation of nine studies from the Reproductive Health Study Group at the University of Dar es Salaam. They highlight the erosion of customary institutions that regulate procreation and express the meaning of gender and marriage. They show the failure of modern education to prepare the young for gendered adulthood. A central tenet of the work is that without an understanding of the dynamics of local customs and attitudes as well as their significance to the people who hold them, change initiated from without becomes ineffective and unsustainable.
The must-read summary of Michael Franzese's book: "I'll Make You An Offer You Can't Refuse: Insider Business Tips From a Former Mob Boss" This complete summary of the ideas from Michael Franzese's book "I'll Make You an Offer You Can't Refuse" shows how Michael Franzese, a former mob boss, puts forward an originally surprising, but convincing, hypothesis: organised crime is not profitable by accident. The men in charge have ingenuity and tenacity. In the 1980s, the President’s Commission on Organized Crime estimated organised crime generates more than $50 billion in revenues each year. Obviously, this summary doesn’t suggest a life of crime, but it does propose that every legitimate businessperson could learn something they could apply. It advises to concentrate on the end goal at all times, and to eliminate any clutter which gets in the way of that. Always be judicious and measured in what you say, because it could come back to haunt you. Be a good listener. Remember at all times that success is self-defined, and work towards your goals, not anyone else’s. Added-value of this summary: • Save time • Understand the key concepts • Increase your business knowledge To learn more, read "I'll Make You an Offer You Can't Refuse" and discover this utterly compelling, entertaining, and valuable guide to achieve your goals.

Of all the books written about the problems of sustainable development and environmental protection, Sustainable Development: Science, Ethics, and Public Policy is one of the first to examine the role of science, economics and law, and ethics as generally applied to decision making on sustainable development, particularly in respect to the recommendations contained in Agenda 21. Specifically, the book examines the role, capabilities, and certain strengths and weaknesses of these disciplines and their ethical implications in the context of sustainable development problems. Such an analysis is necessary to determine whether sustainable development problems create important new challenges and problems for government so that, where appropriate, new tools or approaches may be designed to overcome limitations or take advantage of the strengths of current scientific, economic and legal capabilities. Audience: Environmental professionals, whether academic, governmental or industrial, or in the private consultancy sector. Also suitable as an upper level text or reference.

The ability to persuade, influence and convince is a vital skill for success in work and life. However, most of us have little idea how to argue well. Indeed, arguing is still seen by many as something to be avoided at all costs, and mostly it's done poorly, or not at all. Yet it's possibly the most powerful and yet most neglected asset you could have. In How to Argue: Powerfully, Persuasively, Positively , you will discover the art of arguing powerfully, persuasively and positively and you'll have a head start every time you want. The Truth About Negotiations, Second Edition shares even more proven principles for handling virtually every negotiation situation. Building on her widely praised First Edition, Leigh Thompson delivers more than 50 real solutions for the make-or-break scenarios faced by every negotiator. In this edition, Thompson adds powerful new “truths” and techniques for negotiating across generations and cultures, negotiating in virtual/online environments, and more.
