Rising Above A Toxic Workplace

Rising Above A Toxic Workplace

Learn how to thrive in—or escape from—a toxic work environment. Toxic organizations are rife with conflict, fear, and anger. The environment causes people to have physiological responses as if they’re in a fight-or-flight situation. Healthy people become ill. Colds, flu and stress-related illnesses such as heart attacks are more common. By contrast, in resonant organizations, people take fewer sick days and turnover is low. People smile, make jokes, talk openly and help one another." - Annie McKee (author, consultant) Many employees experience the reality of bullying bosses, poisonous people, and soul-crushing cultures on a daily basis. Rising Above a Toxic Workplace tells authentic stories from today's workers who share how they cope, change, or quit. Candidly they open up about what they learned, what they wish they had done, and how to gain resilience. Insightfully illustrating from these accounts, authors Gary Chapman, Paul White, and Harold Myra blend their combined experiences in ministry and business to deliver hope and practical guidance to those who find themselves in an unhealthy work environment. Includes a Survival Guide and Toolkit full of strategies and realistic insights

Rising Above Shepherdsville

In the tradition of The Higher Power of Lucky and Because of Winn Dixie, a young girl deals with her mother’s suicide in this riveting debut novel that explores love, loss, family, friendship, and redemption. In the summer of 1977, twelve-year-old Dulcie Louise Dixon arrives on the doorstep of her Aunt Bernie’s farmhouse in Shepherdsville, Ohio, with no voice, a spelling bee trophy, a Webster’s Dictionary, and a box full of ashes. She tries to adjust to her new situation, but can’t forget the words she left behind or the mother she’s lost to suicide. One day, Dulcie discovers a secret place: a swan’s nest in the woods where at last, her broken world begins to mend. With the help of her surprising new friends—a guitar-playing runaway, a poetry-loving preacher, a one-armed gas station attendant, a singing seamstress, a chained-up hunting dog, and a family of swans—Dulcie is finally able to rise out of her sadness and grief to find her voice once again.

Rising Above Mediocrity Accessing The Abundant Life

Rising Above Mediocrity Accessing The Abundant Life

“In addition to In His Own Image: Understanding and Enjoying the Full Complement of Salvation, Dr. Carter has also written and is in the process of publishing Rising above Mediocrity, Accessing the Abundant Life: Taking Christian Practices to the Next Level. “In Rising above Mediocrity, Accessing the Abundant Life, Dr. Carter endeavors to delineate a not-to-well-known procedural process that leads to significant spiritual growth and development. As a friend and colleague, I too believe that its insights will be profitable for those who have an ear to hear what the Spirit is saying to the organized Church. Dr. Carter is correct when he says, “People would do better if they knew better,” even if they don’t agree with him. However, as one who is in total agreement, I believe he has done a masterful job of describing and delineating a verbal portrait of the person, the presence, and the power of the all-knowing, all-powerful, all-seeing, and ever-present God of creation. These publications reflect the experiences and exposure of this author while on the road to repentance and regeneration.” —Reverend D. D.
