22 Things a Woman Must Know: If She Loves a Man With Asperger's Syndrome

by Rudy Simone Maxine Aston

Although having Asperger's Syndrome (AS) can make romantic relations difficult, having a fulfilling relationship with an Asperger man is certainly not impossible. A woman in love with a man with AS may interpret his difficulties with communication and socialization as a lack of interest in the relationship. He may vacillate between being gentle and caring to seeming cold and distant. She may find his behavior hard to understand, resulting in feelings of loneliness, isolation, and confusion. This book shows how to overcome these difficulties and maintain a loving relationship with an AS partner. From an unwillingness to show affection in public or even sleep in the same bed, to problems holding down a job, this book looks at 22 common traits that women may discover when they are dating, living with or married to a man with Asperger's Syndrome. Rudy Simone explores the complications of Asperger's relationships with honesty and understanding, drawing on research and personal experience to inform and advise women with AS partners. She offers helpful tips for improving the relationship and finding fulfillment both individually and as a couple. This book will help women to understand the male Asperger's mind and, equally, it can help men with AS to see things from their partner's perspective. It will also be of interest to counselors working with couples where the male partner has Asperger's Syndrome. Rudy Simone is a writer and Asperger's Syndrome educator who lives in Western New York.

The 2nd Language of Leadership

by Michael P. Quirk Patricia M. Fandt

This book focuses on the behavioral and personality areas that can be used to strengthen one's skills and to make wise decisions about when and how to lead. It was written for the working professional who wants to learn what he or she can do by working with their personality to become more satisfied with and masterful in their leadership roles. Good leaders have learned to succeed over time by acquiring the needed range of personal skills, much like one learns a second language. Geared for entry and mid-term leaders, this book is an empirically based training guide to acquire knowledge and implement a plan to help increase one's leadership skills. Within the framework of 10 chapters, this book: * promotes a shared recognition of the role that personality plays in leadership by reviewing a case study of representative leadership situation that both identifies familiar personal struggles and organizational changes; * offers a way of thinking about how personality in general and the Big 5 in particular fills in the gaps and connects the pieces when it comes to how people become effective leaders; * illustrates how--within the Big 5 framework--to use the 2nd language approach to leverage natural personality strengths and manage weaknesses in an effort to build greater leadership effectiveness; * makes available 2nd language tools including effective intervention strategies and goal setting techniques based on enabling philosophies to understand what makes this approach accessible and practical to use; and * reassures that most leadership failures are reversible and that through using the 2nd language approach, these inevitable and sometimes necessary setbacks afford clarity about how to use your style to the best advantage.

3-System Theory of the Cognitive Brain: A Post-Piagetian Approach to Cognitive Development (Essays in Developmental Psychology)

by Olivier Houdé

3-System Theory of the Cognitive Brain: A Post-Piagetian Approach to Cognitive Development puts forward Olivier Houdé’s 3-System theory of the cognitive brain, based on numerous post-Piagetian psychological and brain imaging data acquired from children and adults. This ground-breaking theory simultaneously anchors itself in a deep understanding of the history of psychology and fuels current debates on thinking, reasoning and cognitive development. Spanning the long-term history of psychology, from Plato and Aristotle to more current experimental psychology, this pioneering work goes beyond the approaches of Kahneman (i.e. System 1 theory) and Piaget (i.e. System 2 theory) to put forward a theory in which the inhibitory-control system (i.e. System 3) takes precedence. Houdé argues that the brain contains a third control system located in the prefrontal cortex which is dedicated to inhibiting Kahneman’s intuitive heuristics system and activating Piaget’s logical algorithms system anywhere in the brain on a case-by-case basis, depending on the goal and context of the task. 3-System Theory of the Cognitive Brain simultaneously explains the early logical abilities discovered in babies, the dynamic, strategic and non-linear process of cognitive development in children, and the fast heuristics and biases observed in adults. Houdé considers the exciting implications of this theory on neuro-education using examples from the classroom. This book is essential reading for students and researchers in cognitive development and education, child psychology, reasoning and neurosciences.

365 Frases de Autodisciplina: Frases Diárias de Autodisciplina para Hábitos Duradouros, Força Mental e Atingir os Objetivos

by Xabier K. Fernao

“Somos aquilo que fazemos repetidamente. A Excelência não é um ato, mas sim um hábito” – Aristóteles Qual é o fator delimitador #1 entre pobres e ricos, os bem-sucedidos e os fracassados, as pessoas felizes e infelizes? Autodisciplina. Pense nisso. Quando não é disciplinado em relação ao seu trabalho/emprego, acumula trabalho e eventualmente enerva-se e fica esgotado. Quando não é disciplinado com as suas finanças, irá acumular despesas e dívidas desnecessárias e irá eventualmente enervar-se e ficar esgotado a nível económico. Já percebeu a ideia. Contudo, o que se passa com o livro “365 Dias de Frases de Autodisciplina”? Concorda que a mentalidade é 80%, e as estratégias e mecânicas são apenas 20% no que toca a atingir o sucesso? Já entendeu a ideia geral. As pessoas estão sempre a perseguir os 20%, as coisas vistosas, e pensam que UMA boa ideia vai discipliná-las. São, contudo, todos os lembretes diários, influência e ambiente que fazem com que as pessoas se disciplinem e comprometam todos os dias. Não sei o que está a tentar alcançar. Talvez seja o seu corpo de sonho, ter aqueles abdominais que sempre quis. Talvez seja uma inovação no seu negócio, acrescentando mais um zero no final do rendimento anual deste ano. Não importa. Aquilo que sei sobre si, ainda assim, é que é alguém que quer mais. E isso já é espetacular. Quer mais dinheiro, mais saúde, mais felicidade, mais sexo, mais prazer, mais conhecimento e mais liberdade… e não existe nada de errado com isso. A vida é sobre crescer e expandir o nosso ‘eu’. Ou crescemos um pouco a cada dia ou morremos um pouco a cada dia. Expresso-lhe o meu mais profundo respeito por querer escolher o caminho ascendente, o caminho do crescimento e da autodisciplina.

The 4 Stages of Psychological Safety: Defining the Path to Inclusion and Innovation

by Timothy R. Clark

This book is the first practical, hands-on guide that shows how leaders can build psychological safety in their organizations, creating an environment where employees feel included, fully engaged, and encouraged to contribute their best efforts and ideas.Perhaps the leader's most challenging task is to increase intellectual friction while decreasing social friction. When this doesn't happen and it becomes emotionally expensive to say what you truly think and feel, that lack of psychological safety triggers the self-censoring instinct, shuts down learning, and blocks collaboration and creativity. Timothy R. Clark, a former CEO, Oxford-trained social scientist, and organizational consultant, provides a research-based framework to help leaders transform their organizations into sanctuaries of inclusion and incubators of innovation.When leaders cultivate psychological safety, teams and organizations progress through four successive stages. First, people feel included and accepted; then they feel safe to learn, contribute, and finally, challenge the status quo. Clark draws deeply on psychology, philosophy, social science, literature, and his own experiences to show how leaders can, and must, set the tone and model the ideal behaviors—as he says, "you either show the way or get in the way." This thoughtful and pragmatic guide demonstrates that if you banish fear, install true performance-based accountability, and create a nurturing environment that allows people to be vulnerable as they learn and grow, they will perform beyond your expectations.

40/40 Vision: Clarifying Your Mission in Midlife

by Bob Buford Peter Greer Greg Lafferty

At midlife, our perspective can become blurry. Midlife is a disruptive season where we collide with limitations on all sides. We recognize there is more of life in the rearview mirror than on the road ahead of us. We wonder if our lives so far have been worthwhile. We are uncertain about what lies ahead. But midlife is also an opportunity to recalibrate our vision. It's a time to look back, take stock of our lives so far, and refocus on new dimensions of identity and calling. Peter Greer and Greg Lafferty offer insight for navigating midlife with fresh clarity and purpose. Drawing on the wisdom of the book of Ecclesiastes, they show how we can come to grips with the realities of who we are and what we should become in the years ahead. In a world that can seem meaningless at times, God offers perspective that anchors us, renews us and propels us back into the world in meaningful mission and service. Rediscover who God has called you to be. And see the rest of your life with the clarity of 40/40 vision.

by BB Easton

One woman's secret journal completely changes her marriage in this hilarious and biting memoir -- soon to be a Netflix Original Series.School psychologists aren't supposed to write books about sex.

She begins to write about these escapades in a secret journal, just for fun, but when Ken starts to act out the words on the pages, BB realizes that she might have stumbled upon the holy grail of behavior modification techniques.

Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, but in the end, BB learns that the man she was trying so hard to change was perfect for her all along.
