If You Want to Go Far, Go Together- African proverb I've been asked many times, why have I done this podcast series. Why have I written Break Through to Yes: Unlocking the Possible within a Culture of Collaboration? Why is collaboration so important? I'll tell you why. We need it. I need it. Our future needs it. Business is forced into silos and must give up to an open and agile system that better suits today's world and our shared future. We must create shared value. We must think critically. The costs of command and control leadership are getting higher. During my 42-year career in business, I've held titles including director, president, and chief operating officer. I have seen many and repeated failures, sometimes with the cost of billions. These failures affect organizations and their capital projects and operations. When a company starts making mistakes, tries to force its agenda on others, or is in conflict with its own stakeholders, the consequences are significant. People revolt and profit margins are destroyed. Projects get delayed in regulatory and community review for extended lengths of time. Employees simply don't give their best because they do not trust the systems they work in especially when they have little influence in the processes or programs in which they are involved. The cost to organizations can be both internal and external disengagement, rejection by regulatory bodies and governments, rejection by impacted communities, and damage to the environment. Add to that a wide range of negative human impacts including everything from depression, conflict, suicide, marital breakdown and career paralysis to the loss of intelligence and vision of the brightest people in your business, simply because they mentally and spiritually check out when they come to work. All this means lost productivity, lost opportunities to grow and prosper, and distracted leaders and workers who no longer feel able to do good work. Leaders and organizations, however, can gain a strategic advantage by avoiding all this energy and revenue-zapping negativity simply by working together to build a culture of collaboration.

While living in Singapore in 1996, Karen Bauer, from Iowa, became ill and felt darkness descend upon her family. When the illness worsened and many frightening events began to occur, she consistently prayed to God and all of heaven for help. After she had a traumatic brain injury in 2003, her spiritual vision was opened and she felt as though she was living in a nightmare while being fully awake. As a last resort in 2004, she sought help from a spiritual healer and hypnotherapist from Hong Kong named Mabel. During her first meeting with her, a huge powerful angel appeared. From that moment on, she was changed forever. Hypnotherapy uncovered a near-death experience and severe head trauma from her childhood that catapulted her into these spiritual realms at an early age. The following years were saturated with many trips to heaven for lessons and healing and numerous angelic visitations. She was healed and she discovered her true soul purpose. She longed to tell everyone she knew about what she experienced in heaven, but fear kept her silent. Now, almost ten years after her first journey to heaven, she feels called to share everything that she learned and experienced with all of mankind! In 100 Things I learned in Heaven, Karen shares all of the lessons she learned from God and the angels, describes in full detail everything that she felt and saw while ascending to and in heaven, and discloses what she learned about the darkness. She believes that if everyone knew how much love and help they have in heaven and how all of heaven is just waiting for us to ask for assistance in every situation, it would change their lives forever and they would be free to live with increased hope, trust, power, and joy

An internationally known public speaker, entrepreneur, and marketing executive shares practical, up-to-date tips for mastering the skills of networking. Networking doesn’t have to be that frenzied old-school game of calendars packed with stuffy power lunches and sterile evenings at community business gatherings. We’ve entered a new era, one in which shifting cultural values and the explosion of digital technology enable us to network in vastly more efficient, more focused, and more enjoyable ways. A fresh take on How to Win Friends and Influence People, Your Network Is Your Net Worth is an entertaining, straightforward guide filled with revealing case studies, hands-on advice, and innovative strategies for building your network. Written by sought-after speaker, entrepreneur, and marketing executive Porter Gale, with a foreword by Apple evangelist and bestselling author Guy Kawasaki, this book shows you how to establish, expand, and nurture your connections both online and off. New ways to network are popping up every day—and Gale tells you how to make the most of them—but even traditional networking opportunities are not the same animals that they once were, and we need to shift our attitudes and approaches accordingly. Networking has evolved from a transactional game to a transformational process. Whereas once it was about power plays, now it’s about charting your own course, following your passions, and making meaningful connections, which in turn increase your happiness and productivity. In addition to chronicling her own rise from an ad agency intern to an in-demand consultant, Gale also shares the inspiring stories of so many others who live by this networking model: a military wife who connects with social media communities while her husband is deployed overseas, a young woman blog-ger battling leukemia, a dyslexic politician who wins elections by telling stories, and the CEO of a Major League Baseball team who once made a phone call that changed the course of his life. When you focus on your passions and reorganize your networking around your values and beliefs, you will discover the kind of lasting relationships, personal transformation, and, ultimately, tangible wealth that are the foundation for happiness and success. With a message both timely and important, Your Network Is Your Net Worth is the definitive handbook to Networking 2.0.

A Washington Post Bestseller Not all collaboration is smart. Make sure you do it right. Professional service firms face a serious challenge. Their clients increasingly need them to solve complex problems—everything from regulatory compliance to cybersecurity, the kinds of problems that only teams of multidisciplinary experts can tackle. Yet most firms have carved up their highly specialized, professional experts into narrowly defined practice areas, and collaborating across these silos is often messy, risky, and expensive. Unless you know why you’re collaborating and how to do it effectively, it may not be smart at all. That’s especially true for partners who have built their reputations and client rosters independently, not by working with peers. In Smart Collaboration, Heidi K. Gardner shows that firms earn higher margins, inspire greater client loyalty, attract and retain the best talent, and gain a competitive edge when specialists collaborate across functional boundaries. Gardner, a former McKinsey consultant and Harvard Business School professor now lecturing at Harvard Law School, has spent over a decade conducting in-depth studies of numerous global professional service firms. Her research with clients and the empirical results of her studies demonstrate clearly and convincingly that collaboration pays, for both professionals and their firms. But Gardner also offers powerful prescriptions for how leaders can foster collaboration, move to higher-margin work, increase client satisfaction, improve lateral hiring, decrease enterprise risk, engage workers to contribute their utmost, break down silos, and boost their bottom line. With case studies and real-world insights, Smart Collaboration delivers an authoritative case for the value of collaboration to today’s professionals, their firms, and their clients and shows you exactly how to achieve it.

We all have music inside us: melodies in our sentences, rhythms in our syllables, heartbeats and steps. Whether we harbor professional aspirations or just a love of playing music, many of us enjoy the art of creation. Some do so with guitar or pen in hand, some while seated at a piano or electronic device, some while taking a stroll and whistling. There is no wrong way -- yet many of us struggle to tap into our abundant sources of inspiration. Now comes a book to remove the barriers between you and your creativity. Steve Dawson and Mark Caro’s Take It to the Bridge: Unlocking the Great Songs Inside You (GIA) offers a lively, instructive dialogue about the art of songwriting; helpful chord, key and song-form charts; and creative assignments designed to inspire anyone who ever has thought of adding songs to the world. It’s a book about discovering your artistic voice and adding beauty and truth to the world. Dawson is the brilliant singer/songwriter of the band Dolly Varden as well as a musician’s musician who has played and sung with a diverse array of collaborators. Caro is a longtime cultural journalist who has written about everyone from New Kids on the Block to Riccardo Muti and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. After Caro took Dawson’s inventive songwriting class at the Old Town School of Folk Music, he jumped at his friend’s suggestion that they collaborate on a book that would combine the class’s best songwriting exercises with a deep exploration of the joys and challenges of creating your own music. The co-authors are promoting the book with a series of events where they discuss their own adventures in songwriting (and perform some examples), dig into the work of their musical heroes (and villains) and try to illuminate the path for anyone seeking a more creative life. The theme is simple: You can do this! "The truth is, dear reader, you already know how to write songs. You've been, in a sense, studying them your whole life. My goal as a teacher, and the goal of this book, is Unlocking the Great Songs Inside You. They're in there. I have witnessed the births of hundreds of songs in class, some so beautiful that the class is wiping back tears by the end. These songs were written by people exactly like you: lovers of music; strummers of guitars, banjos, mandolins; people who've dreamed of writing songs like the ones they love. So, welcome and good luck." -- Steve Dawson
