DESCRIPTION:

You can learn to significantly increase employee motivation within just a few weeks. It’s no secret, great leaders are motivators and experts at team building. They know not just how to motivate individuals, they have also mastered the skill of motivating teams and groups of people leading to superior team performance. Written for busy managers and drawing on the latest research, 28 Days to a Motivated Team provides leaders with a step-by-step guide for how to increase both individual and team motivation. Over a 4-week period, managers are led on a journey of discovery, self-reflection and environment creation that will support team motivation. Managers who are able to help employees increase employee motivation also increase employee engagement leading to greater job performance. While a manager cannot directly instill motivation in a person, 28 Days to a Motivated Team will help you better understand how each employee’s natural motivation and drive can be unleashed, creating greater satisfaction and vitality in work and life. Utilizing the most contemporary motivation science available, Jones shares the key factors that set the stage for the ultimate state of mind, motivation. Motivation doesn’t happen by accident, it is a process of intentional behaviors on the part of the manager that creates an environment that supports the natural motivation that each person already has within them.

DESCRIPTION:

ENTER TOMORROW with a 3 book YA Robot Cyberpunk Dystopia

EXOTIQA – Book 1
THIRTY – Book 1.5
SPHERE – Book 2

When the nation is controlled by a popular online program, those that deviate risk their lives. But that never stopped Fione.

Read the second release by author M. Black, which fans of Divergent and The Glitch will enjoy. Filled with haunting questions of consciousness and artificial intelligence, identity and self-awareness, politics and love, life and death, the reader will be engaged in an entertaining story filled with futuristic technology.

Set in the cyberpunk year 2055 in British Columbia, Canada, where humans are part robotic and robots are becoming more humanlike, the line dividing the two is becoming less clear.

When sixteen-year-old Fione meets Maci, a twenty-one-year-old Flexbot who escapes from ImaTech located along the crust of the Coast Mountains, Fione’s life is taken on a roller-coaster ride of events that begins with trying to save Maci from ImaTech Corporation and ends with trying to save the country.

With Fione’s best friend and love interest, a Flexbot named Pix, Fione and Maci must come face-to-face with the greatest dangers their country has ever seen and learn the disturbing secrets of the popular online program Exotiqa–which her friends, family, and most of the country has downloaded onto their Cerebral Slabs. This won’t be easy, since Maci’s only love and greatest enemy, nicknamed Thirty, is tracking her every move.

Fans of Divergent, iRobot, The Glitch, Blade Runner (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?), artificial intelligence, robotics, and futuristic technology will enjoy this YA Robot Cyberpunk Dystopian about two young, but strong female heroines who must save the fragile system crumbling around them.

Flexbot dialogue is told in Synchro Let text in print (10 font size in ebook), and human dialogue is told in Baskerville text (12 font size).

REVIEWS:

“Wow, wow, wow! It is nothing short of great! I love all dystopia. But you have a unique twist.” -Aisha

“The difference of narration between the eyes of a human and that of a robot is really fun. It is distinct and well thought out, of how each being would feel and see things.” -Francine

“Certainly as good as anything Jane Lindskold writes! The story flowed, it was easy to sympathize with the main characters, and it was an entertaining read.” -John

“The book explores a new avenue in robotics with emotional attachments starting to develop between robots and even between humans and bots. Realistically and sensitively dealt with, this adds an intriguing and appealing aspect to the plot. Each chapter is written through the eyes of the various characters in turn, which further adds to the suspense and intrigue as well as elaborating on the nuances of human/bot relationships.

On their quest to prevent the destruction of the world as we know it, our heros set off on a journey to ImaTech to destroy Exotiqa, meeting up with some interesting characters and becoming involved in a lot of action including an exciting car chase worthy of any Speilberg movie. In fact, the story would make a great film or perhaps a TV series. There are twists and turns in the plot and we are kept guessing as to who the culprits are until near the end.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book despite it being designed to appeal to a young adult audience, but then I am big kid at heart. In my opinion this is a great read for anyone of any age. A warining shot across the bows of AI advocates. Marvelous!” -Ken

DESCRIPTION:

Sometimes, a bear’s problems can be bigger off the ice than on it…

Hanna Radley has put her past behind her and as far as she’s concerned, that’s where it should stay. With her bruises still healing, she’s ready to take on a new life in a new place… but take it very, very slow. So when not one, but two intolerably arrogant and at the same time incredibly charming Alpha bears crash into her life, she’s not sure whether to pull the breaks or go with the ride.

If her past has taught her anything, it’s that going with the flow is not always the right choice.

Finn and Foster Caldwell are masters at getting into trouble, but the hockey star brothers might have met their match. Suspended, they need to make good on their promise to fix up their act. That includes visits with a psychiatrist, which would be unacceptable, if she didn’t happen to be the most enchanting woman they’ve ever met. With problems brewing in their team and their personal lives, Hanna seems to be the only good thing left and the one thing both brothers can agree to fight for.

The question is, can they fight hard enough?
