Life Lessons from Remarkable Women:Tales of Triumph Failure and Learning to Love Yourself Stylist Magazine
Popular blogger Lauren Casper shares poignantly simple yet profound wisdom about removing the barriers we construct around our hearts and doing life full-on, all from the least expected source: her five-year-old son, Mareto. Five-year-old Mareto finds color and light in the ordinary happenings of every day and delights in beauty just waiting to be found. Those are lessons he shares, often unknowingly, with his mom, Lauren Casper. For Lauren, living with Mareto is a lot like playing the telephone game. He blurts out little phrases that have their origin in something he saw or heard, but by the time they make their way through his mind and back out of his mouth, they´ve transformed - often into beautiful truths about living a simple, authentic, love- and joy-filled life. From ´´it´s okay about it´´, a simple reminder that even when life is painful or difficult, things will be okay because God promises never to leave or forsake his children, to ´´you´re making me feelings´´, which teaches the importance of leaning in to one´s emotions and, in doing so, sharing a piece of oneself with loved ones, Mareto´s simple yet profound wisdom is a reminder to embrace the broken beauty of life, to believe in a God bigger than human comprehension, and to love others even when it doesn´t make sense. For all those looking to recapture the faith, simplicity, wonder, hope, courage, and joy of life, It´s Okay About It provides a guide to look inward and live outward, to discover the most wide open and beautiful life possible. 1.

Transform your leadership with powerful lessons from the front line. Leading on the Frontline brings humanitarian leadership into the boardroom, giving business leaders a powerful lesson in engagement, motivation, inspiration, and innovation. Drawing upon a lifetime of humanitarian work in some of the world´s most difficult places, author Linda Cruse shares stories from the front line that illustrate how to dig deep, inspire, thrive, and more. Business leaders work on a different type of front line - one that is no less volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous - and the ability to deal effectively with the unexpected sets great leaders apart from the herd. Tap into your own intuition, compassion and courage; keep composure under pressure; align vision with strategic goals; exercise mental toughness - these skills are required in the aftermath of a tsunami in Thailand or a landslide in Nepal, and in business, they propel good people to great feats of leadership. This audiobook presents extraordinary stories of extraordinary people who confront the best and worst of humanity every day. These people accomplish big things with few resources, prioritize progress over personal comfort, and prevail over seemingly impossible odds. Their lessons contain multitudes for those who aspire to be great leaders - and the very best version of themselves. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Linda Cruse.

In From Able to Remarkable: Help your students become expert learners , Robert Massey provides a pathway to help teachers guide their students through the gauntlets of the gifted, the underpasses of underachievement and the roadblocks to remarkable on their learning journeys. What makes remarkable students remarkable? Attributes such as resilience, curiosity and intelligence may come to mind - and we might also add others, such as intuition and tenacity. But what has helped make them what they are? Were they born this way, or did their ´remarkabilities´ emerge during their schooling? Such questions may make teachers feel uneasy, prompting them to reflect on the sometimes limiting scope of what is often labelled as ´gifted and talented provision´ in their school. Robert Massey argues, however, that these remarkabilities are there, latent and dormant, in many more students than we might at first acknowledge. In From Able to Remarkable Robert shares a rich variety of practical, cross-curricular strategies designed to help teachers unearth and nurture these capabilities and signpost a route to the top for every learner. Informed by educational research and evidence from the field of cognitive science, the book talks teachers through a wide range of effective teaching and learning techniques - all of which are appropriate for use with all pupils and not only with top sets or high attainers. Robert also shares ideas on how teachers can improve their students´ abilities to receive, respond to and then deliver feedback on both their own work and that of others. To complement the feedback process, he presents practical methods to help teachers make questioning, self-review and greater student ownership of their questioning within lessons a staple of day-to-day classroom interaction. Venturing beyond the classroom, the book also explores approaches to whole-school provision for high-attaining students and offers some robust stretch and challenge to educational leaders in considering what widespread excellence in education might look like. Suitable for teachers and gifted and talented coordinators in both primary and secondary schools. Contents include: Part 1: Starting Our Learning Journey. Chapter 1: What´s in a Name? From Able to Remarkable; Chapter 2: The Ideal Lesson: Adults Teach, Students Learn, Students Lead; Part 2: The Expert Learner. Chapter 3: Purposeful Practice; Chapter 4: Feedback; Chapter 5: Collaborative Learning; Chapter 6: Questioning; Chapter 7: The Learning Rollercoaster; Part 3: Excellence for All. Chapter 8: Well-being: Students, Teachers and Parents; Chapter 9: Renaissance Scholars for the Twenty-First Century; Chapter 10: Towards a Manifesto for Excellence.
