Most leadership models start with trying to identify what great leaders do. Instead, leadership expert Emmanuel Gobillot answers the question "what do great followers want?" He identifies the key elements of leadership success and the proven pathways to developing the charisma we all seek in the leaders who truly inspire and motivate. Leaders who understand the needs of their followers demonstrate that they share the values of their team, have the character to act in line with these values and the ability to deliver on them. The best leaders have high EQ (Emotional Intelligence) capabilities and can respond to their followers' needs in an authentic way. This book breaks down the all-important "charisma" into eight critical elements, explaining how each component works and offering practical development steps for each.
Getting these steps right will transform good leaders into magnets for great followers.
"Steampunk action that starts with a jump and never lets up!" - D.J. Butler, author of THE KIDNAP PLOT and WITCHY EYE On the scorched world of Schism, all life survives in huge trenches, protected from the heat of the torrid sun. In these chasms, human colonists often find themselves at odds with the indigenous humanoids called Spiders. Jake’s airship, powered by ancient technology, takes advantage of the unique terrain, but makes him valuable to both sides of local warring tribes. The captain and crew of the Sky Turtle are forced to risk everything in a fight between these followers of opposing elemental magics. If they fail, it could cost them everything.
Schism is a planet divided physically, racially, and politically. In this difficult environment with limited energy resources, steam power is often the best adaptation.
Will it be enough to combat the arcane and alien forces using them as a pawn in an age-old war?

Ruben Waara asustelee vuoroin Espoossa ja vuoroin talvisessa Hangossa. Hän tutustuu pikkuhiljaa naapureihinsa, originelliin taiteilijaan Tex Hukkaseen sekä Kaj Karsteniin, vanhaan mieheen ja tämän hieman tuuliajolle joutuneeseen veljenpoikaan. Kaj pyytää Waaralta apua, sillä häntä yritetään ilmeisesti huijata nigerialaiskirjeiden avulla. Mutta kuka on kirjeiden takana ja ovatko ne aitoja nigerialaiskirjeitä? Entä kuka on Simon Eddy Akbata, musta mies, joka ilmestyy Hankoon kuin varkain? Waarasta tuntuu, että kaikki ei ole niin kuin pitäisi ja hän pyytää toistamiseen apua poliisiystävältään. Waaran firmallakaan ei mene hyvin ja hänen pitäisi pystyä keskittymään olennaiseen, mutta hän on levoton. Waara kuulee, että hänen vävynsä on päässyt vankilasta - ja sitten löytyy ruumis. Mutta mitä tekemistä tällä kaikella on Waaran kanssa? Sen hän saa tietää saadessaan vieraan Venäjältä.
This beautifully written work sheds new light on the origins and nature of Mahayana Buddhism with close readings of four well-known texts—the Lotus Sutra, Diamond Sutra, Tathagatagarbha Sutra, and Vimalakirtinirdesa. Treating these sutras as literary works rather than as straightforward philosophic or doctrinal treatises, Alan Cole argues that these writings were carefully sculpted to undermine traditional monastic Buddhism and to gain legitimacy and authority for Mahayana Buddhism as it was veering away from Buddhism’s older oral and institutional forms. His sophisticated and sustained analysis of the narrative structures and seductive literary strategies used in these sutras suggests that they were specifically written to encourage devotion to the written word instead of other forms of authority, be they human, institutional, or iconic.
