To compete with today's increasing globalization and rapidly evolving technologies, individuals and organizations must take their ability to learn—the foundation for continuous improvement, operational excellence, and innovation—to a much higher level. In Learn or Die, Edward D. Hess combines recent advances in neuroscience, psychology, behavioral economics, and education with key research on high-performance businesses to create an actionable blueprint for becoming a leading-edge learning organization. Learn or Die examines the process of learning from an individual and an organizational standpoint. From an individual perspective, the book discusses the cognitive, emotional, motivational, attitudinal, and behavioral factors that promote better learning. Organizationally, Learn or Die focuses on the kinds of structures, culture, leadership, employee learning behaviors, and human resource policies that are necessary to create an environment that enables critical and innovative thinking, learning conversations, and collaboration. The volume also provides strategies to mitigate the reality that humans can be reflexive, lazy thinkers who seek confirmation of what they believe to be true and affirmation of their self-image. Exemplar learning organizations discussed include the secretive Bridgewater Associates, LP; Intuit, Inc.; United Parcel Service (UPS); W. L. Gore & Associates; and IDEO.

There are prevailing paradoxes which must be resolved if we are to advance an educational system worthy of 21st century citizens. A paradox is an apparently contradictory statement which may be true however great the contradiction. Somehow, we have to resolve these contradictions if we are to move forward. “We assume that all can learn, but all do not learn at the same pace and in the same way. Yet, we want everyone to complete schooling at the same time or be judged a failure” (Indiana University Dean of Education, Howard Mehlinger, Retired). During the advent years of the July 4th 2026 Birthday Celebration of The Declaration of Independence, the paradoxes blocking our democratic institutions of learning have not been resolved. The Institute for 21st Century Learning has used in the preparation of LEARN OR DIE a community of national scholars, each having their own insights, yet the knowledge and skill attributes necessary for addressing today’s paradox barriers: Qualitative Action Research; The New Global Economy; The New Urbanism; The New University; Complex Systems Evaluation; 21st Century Leadership; Vision-Based Community Development; and Citizens’ Community Connections and the Transformation of Community Schools. Is the American Revolution still alive?

It’s Finally Available! Dave Mitchell has spoken to over 120,000 people since he founded this corporate training firm, the Leadership Difference, in 1995. Over that time his seminar – Live and Learn or Die Stupid! – has been among his most popular programs. During his presentation, Dave would share stories of his own struggle to achieve a healthy balance between professional and personal excellence. Is it possible to realize your full potential at work and still be an exemplary spouse, parent and friend? Is it possible to achieve true contentedness? Over time, Dave assembled several critical personal characteristics that seemed essential to this pursuit of contentedness. Culled from his work with other professionals, his conversations with colleagues and from personal introspection; these attributes formed what Dave called, “a checklist for maximizing happiness.” Thousands of exuberant comments from attendees at his seminars – words like “life changing”, “the most important seminar I have ever experienced,” and simply, “Incredible,” indicated that Dave had touched a nerve. There was just one problem. After every seminar, Dave would be asked if he had a book. His answer was always a sheepish, “No.” Until now. Finally, with the release of the book Live and Learn...or Die Stupid!, you can experience the content of Dave Mitchell’s popular “enter-train-ment” seminar. We hope you enjoy it and please feel free to contact us at www.theleadershipdifference.com.

Learning To Die In London 1380 1540

Author : Amy Appleford
ISBN : 9780812290479

Taking as her focus a body of writings in poetic, didactic, and legal modes that circulated in England's capital between the 1380s—just a generation after the Black Death—and the first decade of the English reformation in the 1530s, Amy Appleford offers the first full-length study of the Middle English "art of dying" (ars moriendi). An educated awareness of death and mortality was a vital aspect of medieval civic culture, she contends, critical not only to the shaping of single lives and the management of families and households but also to the practices of cultural memory, the building of institutions, and the good government of the city itself. In fifteenth-century London in particular, where an increasingly laicized reformist religiosity coexisted with an ambitious program of urban renewal, cultivating a sophisticated attitude toward death was understood as essential to good living in the widest sense. The virtuous ordering of self, household, and city rested on a proper attitude toward mortality on the part both of the ruled and of their secular and religious rulers. The intricacies of keeping death constantly in mind informed not only the religious prose of the period, but also literary and visual arts. In London's version of the famous image-text known as the Dance of Death, Thomas Hoccleve's poetic collection The Series, and the early sixteenth-century prose treatises of Tudor writers Richard Whitford, Thomas Lupset, and Thomas More, death is understood as an explicitly generative force, one capable (if properly managed) of providing vital personal, social, and literary opportunities.

Blockchain or Die is a business book, training book and a resource book in one book. Blockchains and cryptocurrencies are transforming currencies, business, technology, law, government and most industries. Organizations that adopt this new technology will thrive and organizations that do not adopt will miss the competitive advantages including: investments, sales, new customers, marketing and many other benefits. In other words, organizations that do not adopt blockchain technology may "die". Hence the title "Blockchain or Die." Consider these questions: -Have you heard of cryptocurrencies or blockchains but don't know how to start?-Do you have a basic understanding of cryptocurrencies and blockchains but don't have time to research and read all of the articles, books and blogs to improve your knowledge?-Do you want to know how to use and profit from cryptocurrencies and blockchains?-Do you need guidance to incorporate blockchain technology in your organization?If you answered, "yes" to any of these questions, Blockchain or Die can help you find the blockchain solution that fits your needs. Blockchain or Die is a succinct, yet comprehensive "one-stop-shop" for anyone who wants to increase their understanding of cryptocurrencies and blockchains. Unlike most other books on this topic, Blockchain or Die includes action items at the end of every chapter so you not only learn about this new technology, you are given achievable steps on how to use this new technology.Blockchain or Die is not just a purchase; it's an investment in your future. Her Excellency Audrey Marks Ambassador of Jamaica to the United StatesBlockchain or Die is an informative combination of business, technology and law written in plain language. As the Managing Partner for the Cogent Law Group, I have read my fair share of blockchain content and Blockchain or Die gives the reader the core legal information they need to understand cryptocurrency and blockchain regulations. The best part is Eric gives the reader the resources to educate themselves on this topic. Once you read Blockchain or Die, especially the chapter on cryptocurrency regulations, you will know the basics and how to stay informed.Thomas Goldstein, Esq.Managing Partner, The Cogent Law GroupBlockchain or Die is an excellent book, and the secret sauce is the "Success Strategy Action Items" at the end of each chapter. There are many books and articles on cryptocurrencies and blockchains, but Eric uses the action items to really engage readers. Eric uses the same educational interactive experience in Blockchain or Die as his blockchain trainings. As the Executive Director of the Government Blockchain Association, I recommend reading Blockchain or Die and follow the recommended action items to start your blockchain experience.
