Executive Career Development Secrets from a Life at Disney... Career Development Magic is a unique book full of priceless advice and insightful experience. Lee Cockerell chronicles how he went from being a college dropout, rose through the ranks at both Hilton and Marriott, and ultimately became the Executive Vice President of Operations for Walt Disney World® Resorts. As the Senior Operating Executive for more than a decade, Lee led a team of 40,000 Cast Members and was responsible for the operations of 20 resort hotels, 4 theme parks, 2 water parks, a shopping & entertainment village and the ESPN sports and recreation complex. After spending more than 40 years in the hospitality industry developing skills, learning lessons in management and excellence in customer service, people were always asking Lee, "How can I climb the corporate ladder? How can I get into management? How can I get promoted? How can I make more money?" It was these persistent questions that led Lee to write this book. Lee candidly shares the specific things he did to experience such dramatic success in the corporate world, but he also shares the mistakes he made along the way, and the million-dollar lessons he learned that ultimately led him to the top spot at the number one vacation destination in the world. It was not Disney magic that made Lee Cockerell's career so successful, but the way he dealt with the ups and downs that made it magical. It's the same with your career. Through this book, you will learn how to navigate the ups and downs along your own career path and zero in on your ideal job - and ultimately, the life you desire. When Lee Cockerell says "If I can do it, so can you," he truly means it. No matter where you are along your career path, you have an opportunity to climb the ladder of success by paying attention, asking questions and having a passion for your chosen career.

HOW DOES MAGIC HAPPEN? The Ogilvy advertising legend—“one of the leading minds in the world of branding” (NPR)—explores the art and science of conjuring irresistible products and ideas. "Sutherland, the legendary Vice Chairman of Ogilvy, uses his decades of experience to dissect human spending behavior in an insanely entertaining way. Alchemy combines scientific research with hilarious stories and case studies of campaigns for AmEx, Microsoft and the like. This is a must-read." —Entrepreneur ("Best Books of the Year") Why is Red Bull so popular, though everyone—everyone!—hates the taste? Humans are, in a word, irrational, basing decisions as much on subtle external signals (that little blue can) as on objective qualities (flavor, price, quality). The surrounding world, meanwhile, is irreducibly complex and random. This means future success can’t be projected on any accounting spreadsheet. To strike gold, you must master the dark art and curious science of conjuring irresistible ideas: alchemy. Based on thirty years of field work inside the largest experiment in human behavior ever conceived—the forever-unfolding pageant of consumer capitalism—Alchemy, the revolutionary book by Ogilvy advertising legend Rory Sutherland, whose TED talks have been viewed nearly seven million times, decodes human behavior, blending leading-edge scientific research, absurdly entertaining storytelling, deep psychological insight, and practical case studies from his storied career working on campaigns for AmEx, Microsoft, and others. Heralded as “one of the leading minds in the world of branding” by NPR and "the don of modern advertising" by The Times, Sutherland is a unique thought leader, as comfortable exchanging ideas with Nobel Prize winners Daniel Kahneman and Richard Thaler (both interviewed in these pages) as he is crafting the next product launch. His unconventional and relentlessly curious approach has led him to discover that the most compelling secrets t
For years the art of spellcrafting was passed down with deep secrecy. Even now, with more magick books available, many of the real secrets are only handed down privately. You MIGHT find a book of spells, cast one, and even get a good result. You can find dictionaries that will tell you the meaning of stones, colors or herbs, but there's a surprising lack of detail or explanation. Few books, if any, discuss how spells work and exactly how to create one - why they function or why they flop. Some folks would like you to believe that magick and spellcrafting are complicated, however the basic principles of magick are surprisingly simple. With a bit of practice and creativity you can master these principles. Written as if you were taking an actual course with a master magician, Spellcraft Secrets gives you the basics you need to create your own original spells and to understand spells from other books so that you can customize them to your needs. Crafting your own spells and understanding how and why they work will give you a sense of personal power, which will enhance and strengthen your magick and make you more likely to create real results in the real world. With all that to gain, why use somebody else's spell when you can craft your own?
Yes-again Anna! Here's another in the ongoing series of children's books-illustrated and designed by one of the world's top cut-paper artist-about this irrepressible little girl. Silly Anna! She's always creating some form of mischief, even when she's trying to do the right thing. With half-page gatefolds on every spread, watch Anna as she gets herself and her favorite stuffed bunny a little messy...and a lot wet! Out in the garden with Mommy, Anna wants a cookie. She grabs for it and stamps her feet and begs. No luck! What should she do to get one? Open the flap: Anna says "please, " and receives a nice, big, chocolate chip cookie. Now Bunny wants one too. What a mess--and it's up to Anna to clean him up. Kids will rush to turn the pages of this mixture of picture and novelry book, and see how Anna tries to wipe Bunny's face ( "very messy now!), wash him down (everybody's soaking!), and hug him better. An especially large and happy extended gatefold ends the book as Anna and her bunny dance in the bright sunshine. 24 pages (all in color), 8 1/4 x 9.
