Secret Sharing in User Hierarchy:Share Generation, Distribution and Renewal Ruchira Naskar
One small idea can ignite a revolution just as a single matchstick can start a fire. One such idea, putting employees first and customers second, sparked a revolution at HCL Technologies, the IT services giant. In this candid and personal account, Vineet Nayar, HCLT´s celebrated CEO, recounts how he defied the conventional wisdom that companies must put customers first, then turned the hierarchical pyramid upside down by making management accountable to the employees, and not the other way around. By doing so, Nayar fired the imagination of both employees and customers and set HCLT on a journey of transformation that has made it one of the fastest-growing and profitable global IT services companies and, according to BusinessWeek, one of the twenty most influential companies in the world. Chapter by chapter, Nayar recounts the exciting journey of how he and his team implemented the employee first philosophy by: Creating a sense of urgency by enabling the employees to see the truth of the company´s current state as well as feel the ´´romance´´ of its possible future state, Creating a culture of trust by pushing the envelope of transparency in communication and information sharing, Inverting the organizational hierarchy by making the management and the enabling functions accountable to the employee in the value zone, Unlocking the potential of the employees by fostering an entrepreneurial mind-set, decentralizing decision making, and transferring the ownership of ´´change´´ to the employee in the value zone. Refreshingly honest and practical, this book offers valuable insights for managers seeking to realize their aspirations to grow faster and become self-propelled engines of change.
This is an audiobook about UFOs, but with a difference. It is authored by someone who has worked with them and knows about them from the inside. Benjamin Creme sees the presence of UFOs as planned and of immense value for the people of Earth. According to Creme, the UFOs and the people in them are engaged in a spiritual mission to ease humanity´s lot and to save this planet from further and faster destruction. Our own planetary hierarchy, led by Maitreya, the world teacher, now living among us, works tirelessly with our space brothers and sisters in a fraternal enterprise to restore sanity to this Earth. Creme shows how all the planets in our solar system are inhabited, but on physical levels beyond human sight, the so-called etheric planes. The spacecraft are constructed on the same principle; they too are in etheric matter and have complete control of energies in space. Our space brothers are responsible not only for crop circles, but also for preparing the way on Earth for a new technology of light that will give us unlimited power from the sun. When we banish war forever and are endeavoring to live in right relationship, that technology will be ours. For the spiritual hierarchy of both our own and the sister planets of our system, right human relationship involves the end of competition and the beginning of an era of cooperation, with sharing, justice, and freedom as its hallmarks. The audiobook also addresses the emergence of new and more inclusive forms of education, which will be needed as we experience a huge shift in consciousness and a growing awareness of the richness of life ahead, unfettered by the stranglehold of commercialism and the dominance of market forces. According to the author, the truth will soon be apparent for all to see, awakening humanity to their own divinity and the establishment of the rule of spiritual law on Earth. 1. Language: English.

Author Chip Conley, founder and former CEO of one of the world´s largest boutique hotel companies, turned to psychologist Abraham Maslow´s Hierarchy of Needs at a time when his company was in dire need. And years later, when the young founders of Airbnb asked him to help turn their start-up home-sharing company into a world-class hospitality giant, Conley once again used the principles he´d developed in Peak. In the decade since this book´s first edition, Conley´s Peak strategy has been developed on six continents in organizations in virtually every industry.

As Maitreya, the World Teacher, stands poised ready to emerge into full public work, Benjamin Creme´s latest book, The World Teacher for All Humanity, is an overview of the background to this momentous event. The audiobook details the planned return of our planetary Hierarchy and the descent of Maitreya from His Himalayan retreat in July 1977 and of His work in the world, albeit behind the scenes since then. It speaks too of the enormous changes that His presence has brought about; of His plans and projects, and His priorities and recommendations in the immediate future time. It shows Him as a great and powerful Avatar and, at the same time, as a friend and brother of humanity. Maitreya´s advice will bring humanity to a simple choice between two lines of action: to ignore His recommendations and continue in our present mode of life, and so face self destruction; or to accept gladly His counsel to inaugurate a system of sharing and justice which will guarantee a peaceful and prosperous future for humanity, and the creation of a civilization based on the inner divinity of all men. 1.

A paradigm-shifting model of parenting children in two homes from an internationally recognized expert. A researcher, therapist, and mediator, Robert Emery, PhD, details a new approach to sharing custody with children in two homes. Huge numbers of children are affected by separation, divorce, cohabitation breakups, and childbearing outside of marriage. These children have two homes. But their parents have only one chance to protect their childhood. Building on his 2004 book The Truth About Children and Divorce and a strong evidence base, including his own research, Emery explains that a parenting plan that lasts a lifetime is one that grows and changes along with children´s - and families´ - developing needs. Parents can and should work together to renegotiate schedules to best meet the changing needs of children from infancy through young adult life. Divided into chapters that address the specific needs of children as they grow up, this book: Introduces Emery´s Hierarchy of Children´s Needs in Divorce Provides specific advice for successful parenting, starting with infancy and reaching into emerging adulthood Advocates for joint custody but notes that children do not count minutes and neither should parents Highlights that there is only one ´´side´´ for parents to take in divorce: the children´s side Himself the father of five children, one from his first marriage, Emery brings a rare combination of personal and professional insight and guidance for every parent raising a child in two homes. 1.
