The Monster Problem for Freight Brokers The compensation beast can rear its ugly head in many ways. But generally, compensation problems for freight brokers come from the four employee "lacks": Lack of urgency Lack of motivation Lack of good decision-making Lack of alignment with company objectives Taming the Compensation Monster helps transportation and logistics providers create a sense of urgency, inspire motivation, promote better decision-making, and provide rewards that align with company objectives. 1.

This eye-opening look at the abortion process prior to the Supreme Court’s landmark Roe v. Wade decision of 1973 is now more relevant than ever, with a new introduction by the author revisiting history that is still salient half a century later. In the years before Roe v. Wade, women seeking to end their unwanted pregnancies had limited options - many of them dangerous, even potentially fatal, and nearly all of them illegal. This groundbreaking work by sociologist Nancy Howell Lee, first published in 1969, takes an intimate look at the entire abortion process - from the initial decision to terminate a pregnancy through the procedure itself and the aftermath - providing an incomparable view of what is still one of the most controversial and divisive issues in America. Based on interviews with 114 women who had illegal abortions, Howell Lee’s book reveals how the abortions were procured and paid for, and looks at the lasting effects the experience had on the participants. The interviewees were open and honest about what influenced their decisions, how they conducted their search for someone to perform the procedure, and the physical and emotional aftereffects. With many state governments across America currently passing new legislation that restricts and, in many cases, effectively bans abortion, an eventual return to the pre-Roe days threatens the well-being of millions of women, making Nancy Howell Lee’s pioneering study more relevant than ever. It is a must-listen for pro-choice and pro-life adherents alike. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Claire Slemmer. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/017608/bk_adbl_017608_sample.mp3.

What made Ronald Reagan tick? What was the secret to his greatness, the source of his influence, the key to his character, the strength behind his leadership? And why does it matter to the nation today? Just the mention of his name still evokes deep admiration and affection among Americans of every stripe, on both sides of the aisle. Many have previously sought to capture the essence of this very public figure often called "mysterious and unknowable". But now, as James Rosebush tells Reagan's story from firsthand experience in True Reagan, we come closer to understanding the heart of this great American. In his roles as the longest-serving chief of staff to Nancy Reagan and deputy assistant to President Reagan (his point man on philanthropy and public/private partnerships), James Rosebush had unrivaled one-on-one access to Reagan, observing his personality, his decision making, and his guarded nature. Rosebush's revelations are moving and meant to inspire us to look to our 40th president for guidance now as we face the global challenges of a complicated 21st century. Ronald Reagan was first and foremost an intensely private person, although the life he led placed him at the center of people's attention from his earliest years. Small-town boy and college athlete, sportscaster and lifelong sports fan, actor and movie star, union leader and TV spokesman, Democrat and Republican, governor and president: What an incredible and extraordinary path. Rosebush tells how his center core was formed by his mother, who devoted herself to helping others even as the Reagans struggled themselves. The spiritual foundation she instilled in him by teaching him the Bible governed his thoughts, beliefs, and actions all his life. In a very real sense, his upbringing destined Reagan to become a global evangelist for American exceptionalism - but, importantly, as Rosebush learned firsthand, that did not mean Reagan thought Americans thems 1.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. As the author of Fathering Behaviors, Plenum, 1985 and The American father, Plenum, 1996, W. C. Mackey is a social scientist who has researched topics in anthropology, criminal justice and criminology, psychology, and sociology in his academic and professional career. He also co-authored the 2000 book Gender Roles, Traditions and Generations to Come: The Collision of Competing Interests and the Feminist Paradox with Nancy S. Coney for Nova Science Publishing.One of his widely cited criminal justice articles is "Police Violence as a Function of Community Characteristics," (with Dr. Richard R. E. Kania) which appeared in Criminology in 1977. He revisited the topic in 2009 with Dr. Vance McLaughlin in an article in Criminal Justice Studies, Police-Caused Homicides in the U.S. as a Function of Community Characteristics: Revisiting a Set of Relationships from a Previous Generation. In both studies he and his colleagues demonstrated strong correlations between police decision-making in deadly-force situations and features of the communities the police served.
Now in Currency paperback -- Sally Helgesen's classic study of female leaders and how their strategies represent a highly successful revision of male leadership styles. Sixty thousand copies in print! In her bestselling 1990 book, Sally Helgesen discovered that men and women approach work in fundamentally different ways. Many of these differences hold distinct advantages for women, who excel at running organizations that foster creativity, cooperation, and intuitive decision-making power, necessities for companies of the twenty-first century. Helgesen's findings reveal that organizations run by women do not take the form of the traditional hierarchical pyranaid, but more closely resemble a web, where leaders reach out, not down, to form an interrelating matrix built around a central purpose. The strategy of the web concentrates power at the center by drawing others closer and by creating communities where information sharing is essential. She presents her findings through unique, closely detailed accounts of four successful women business leaders -- Frances Hesselbein of Girl Scouts USA, Barbara Grogan of Western Industrial Contractors, Nancy Badore of Ford Motor Company's Executive Development Center, and Dorothy Brunson of Brunson Communications. Helgesen observes their meetings, listens to their phone calls and conferences, and reads their correspondence. Her 'diary studies' document how women leaders make decisions, schedule their days, gather and disperse information, motivate others, delegate tasks, structure their companies, hire, and fire. She chronicles how their experiences as women -- wives, mothers, friends, sisters, daughters -- contribute to their leadership style.
