Shoot like a girl : one woman's dramatic fight in Afghanistan and on the home front by Mary Jennings Hegar( Recording )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On June 29, 2009, Air National Guard major Mary Jennings "MJ" Hegar was shot down while on a Medevac mission on her third tour in Afghanistan. Despite being wounded, she fought the enemy and saved the lives of her crew and their patients. But soon she would face a new battle: to give women who serve on the front lines the credit they deserve... . After being commissioned into the U.S. Air Force, MJ Hegar was selected for pilot training by the Air National Guard, finished at the top of her class, then served three tours in Afghanistan flying combat search and rescue missions, culminating in a harrowing rescue attempt that would earn MJ the Purple Heart as well as the Distinguished Flying Cross with Valor Device. But it was on American soil that Hegar would embark on her greatest challenge-to eliminate the military's Ground Combat Exclusion Policy, which kept female armed service members from officially serving in combat roles despite their long-standing record of doing so with honor. In Shoot like A Girl, MJ takes the reader on a dramatic journey through her military career: an inspiring, humorous, and thrilling true story of a brave, high-spirited, and unforgettable woman who has spent much of her life ready to sacrifice everything for her country, her fellow man, and her sense of justice

Now that she's back on the force and her work with the FBI is over, Maureen Coughlin should have a quieter life. Until Mardi Gras rolls around, that is. New Orleans's biggest and most infamous party, Mardi Gras may be fun for the revelers but it's hell for the NOPD, who try to keep the peace on streets jam-packed with drunken parade-goers and the thousands of tourists pouring into the city to join the action. With all that chaos, the city becomes a breeding ground for crimes of all shapes and sizes. Maureen's Mardi Gras night starts with a bang when a man in pink zebra-print tights-and nothing else-runs past and throws himself onto the hood of a moving car. It only gets worse when she hears gunshots over the noise of the crowd. In the midst of the revelry, Maureen and her fellow cops must stabilize the shooting victims and hunt down the shooter, all while grappling with massive crowds, a camera crew intent on capturing the investigation for their YouTube channel, an incompetent on-duty detective, and race relations in a city more likely to mistrust cops than ever. It's going to be one very long night for Maureen
What motivates getting things done : procrastination, emotions, and success by Mary C Lamia( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A marvel of evolution is that humans are not solely motivated by their desire to experience positive emotions. They are also motivated, and even driven to achieve, by their attempt to avoid or seek relief from negative ones. What Motivates Getting Things Done: Procrastination, Emotions, and Success explains how anxiety is like a highly motivating friend, why you should fear failure, and the underpinnings of shame, distress, and fear in the pursuit of excellence. Many successful people put things off until a deadline beckons them, while countless others can't resist the urge to do things right away. Dr. Lamia explores the emotional lives of people who are successful in their endeavors--both procrastinators and non-procrastinators alike--to illustrate how the human motivational system works, why people respond to it differently, and how everyone can use their natural style of getting things done to their advantage. The book illustrates how the different timing of procrastinators and non-procrastinators to complete tasks has to do with when their emotions are activated and what activates them. Overall, What Motivates Getting Things Done illustrates how emotions play a significant role in our style of doing, along with our way of being in the world. Readers will acquire a better understanding of the innate biological system that motivates them and how they can make the most of it in all areas of their lives

No ego : how leaders can cut the cost of workplace drama, end entitlement, and drive big results by Cy Wakeman( )

2 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New York Times bestselling author and leadership trainer says: Getting your employees to do their work shouldn't have to be so much, well, work! For years now, leaders in almost every industry have accepted two completely false assumptions - that change is hard, and that engagement drives results. Those beliefs have inspired expensive attempts to shield employees from change, involve them in high-level decision-making, and keep them happy with endless satisfaction surveys and workplace perks. But what these engagement programs actually do, Cy Wakeman says, is inflate expectations and sow unhappiness, leaving employees unprepared to adapt to even minor changes necessary to the organization's survival. Rather than driving performance and boosting efficiency, these programs fuel entitlement and drama, costing millions in time and profit. No Ego is about increasing awareness of just how often individuals are operating out of ego at work, breeding drama and discord rather than innovation and constructive collaboration. It is high time to reinvent leadership thinking. The current work experience is so full of emotional waste that it's seen as a foregone cost in today's business environments. Cy Wakeman teaches straightforward strategies in which this time and energy can be re-commissioned and put toward the value that hired talent is intended to provide. No Ego disposes with unproven HR maxims, and instead offers a complete plan to turn your office from a den of discontent into a highly productive place where happy employees are accountable employees

But they can only do so at a great cost, both for those who leave and for those left behind. Told in alternating points of view, this novel is a vivid, riveting look at a world of oppression and exploitation, the mirror opposite of the idyllic Red Abbey
How will I know you? playaway : a novel by Jessica Treadway( Recording )

1 edition published in 2017 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

On a December day in upstate New York, the body of high school senior Joy Enright is discovered in the woods at the edge of a frozen pond. Since her disappearance weeks earlier Joy had been presumed drowned, but now an autopsy reveals that her death was not simply a tragic accident -- the teenager's body shows unmistakable signs of strangulation. The gruesome discovery upends an otherwise quiet small town, as police grapple with a rare homicide case and those closest to Joy wonder how she could have been so easily taken from them -- and by whom. As the murder investigation unfolds, four characters tell the story from widely divergent perspectives: Susanne, Joy's mother and a teacher at the local art college, tries to reconcile past betrayals with their wrenching consequences; Martin, an African-American artist and graduate student, faces ostracism when blame is cast on him; Tom, a rescue diver and son-in-law of the town's police chief, doubts both the police's methods and his own perceptions; and the hopelessly awkward Harper, Joy's best friend, tries to figure out why Joy disappeared from Harper's life months before she actually went missing
