Meditations; Marcus Aurelius

KShs1,390.00

Written in Greek, without any intention of publication, by the only Roman emperor who was also a philosopher, the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius (AD 121-180) offer a remarkable series of challenging spiritual reflections and exercises developed as the emperor struggled to understand himself and make sense of the universe.

Ranging from doubt and despair to conviction and exaltation, they cover such diverse topics as the nature of moral virtue, human rationality, divine providence, and Marcus’ own emotions.

But while the Meditations were composed to provide personal consolation and encouragement, in developing his beliefs Marcus Aurelius also created one of the greatest of all works of philosophy: a timeless collection of extended meditations and short aphorisms that has been consulted and admired by statesmen, thinkers and readers through the centuries.

    Will needed Lou as much as she needed him, but will her love be enough to save his life?

     

    Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun teashop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.

     

    What Lou doesn’t know is she’s about to lose her job or that knowing what’s coming is what keeps her sane.

     

    Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he’s going to put a stop to that.

     

    What Will doesn’t know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they’re going to change the other for all time.

    Learn how to build and maintain champion level teams, then lead your team to the peak level of success regardless of the field you’re in.

    Individual all-stars can only take you so far. Ultimately, success–whether in business, family, church, athletic teams, or any other organization–is entirely dependent on teamwork. But how does one build that team?

    Leadership expert and bestselling author John C. Maxwell knows that building and maintaining a successful team is no simple task. Even people who have taken their teams to the highest level in their field have difficulty re-creating what accounted for their successes. In his practical, down-to-earth style, Maxwell shares the vital principles of team building that are necessary for success in any type of organization.

    In The 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork, Dr. Maxwell shows how:

    • The Law of High Morale inspired a 50-year-old man who couldn’t even swim to train for the toughest triathlon in the world;
    • The Law of the Big Picture prompted a former US president to travel across the country by bus, sleep in a basement, and do manual labor;
    • Playing by The Law of the Scoreboard enabled one web-based company to keep growing and make money while thousands of other Internet businesses failed;
    • Ignoring The Law of the Price Tag caused one of the world’s largest retailers to close its doors after 128 years in business;
    • And much more!

    Building a successful team has plagued leaders since the beginning of time. Is the key a strong work ethic? Is it “chemistry”? The 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork will empower you–whether coach or player, teacher or student, CEO or non-profit volunteer–with the “how-tos“ and attitudes for building a successful team.

  • Use this helpful book to learn about the leadership tools to fuel success, grow your team, and become the visionary you were meant to be.

    True leadership isn’t a matter of having a certain job or title. In fact, being chosen for a position is only the first of the five levels every effective leader achieves. To become more than “the boss” people follow only because they are required to, you have to master the ability to invest in people and inspire them. To grow further in your role, you must achieve results and build a team that produces. You need to help people to develop their skills to become leaders in their own right. And if you have the skill and dedication, you can reach the pinnacle of leadership—where experience will allow you to extend your influence beyond your immediate reach and time for the benefit of others.

    The 5 Levels of Leadership are:
    1. Position—People follow because they have to.
    2. Permission—People follow because they want to.
    3. Production—People follow because of what you have done for the organization.
    4. People Development—People follow because of what you have done for them personally.
    5. Pinnacle—People follow because of who you are and what you represent.

    Through humor, in-depth insight, and examples, internationally recognized leadership expert John C. Maxwell describes each of these stages of leadership. He shows you how to master each level and rise up to the next to become a more influential, respected, and successful leader.
