Surviving the Whacko Boss Improve Your Work Life. Increase Your Income. Be more Productive and Satisfied at Work. Feel Happier and more In-Control Is the Boss Driving you Crazy? Are you Suffering from Harassment? Is your Workplace Unpleasant and Making you Physically or Mentally Ill? Have you ever felt like you want to Whack your Boss Because of Harassment? I have been where you are today. The Whackos In my life, I've had all kinds of managers, from a boss who was declared insane to the compulsive micromanager and, worst of all, the manager headed for retirement who didn't want to approve or do anything that might rock the boat. I felt attacked, belittled, unvalued and overwhelmed, sometimes all at the same time. These situations affected my health and well-being and caused a feeling of helplessness and depression that nothing seemed to fix. Life appeared to be nothing but failure due to the constant invalidations and negativity. Is Your Boss Making Your Crazy? Is your boss driving you crazy or harassing you? Is he or she making your miserable, denying you raises and promotions, or micromanaging your every move? Are you happy with your work situation? Do you understand it will not improve unless you do something about it? Would you prefer to look forward to going to work every day? Wouldn't you like to be respected, make more money and go home feeling satisfied at doing a job well done? Do Something About It Well, I realized I could do something about the whacko boss. There were many options, from a simple conversation all the way to finding new employment. What I realized is it takes two to be a victim - the victimizer (the whacko boss) and the victim. I decided to break that crazy dance.
"Retirement is defined as the termination of gainful work that is, of activities one of whose aims is that of obtaining wealth, profit or other social rewards." With this definition, Dr Shenk proceeds with her study of retirement and its effects on a specific ethnic community within the United States, the Lebanese-Americans. While traditional sociocultural attitudes toward aging and the elderly are positive and sympathetic among Lebanese, these attitudes are not necessarily the views of the larger, non-ethnic American population - a situation already setting up contraries in a delicate area. The Lebanese-American, for example, is unhappy with the income social Security payments provide upon retirement in the US: the money is not adequate to support the quality of life these people had expected. For analytic purposes, this study is divided into four phases: (1) preparation and anticipation; (2) the actual moment of withdrawal from the active labour force; (3) initial adjustment to the new way of life; and (4) the patterned, established retirement itself. An important element in all of this is the changing patterns within the host community - the US - where retirement does not necessarily mean the end of useful activities, that the new retiree may very well elect to continue in some active, even gainful activity. Leisure, care of the elderly, mobility, and aging and retirement of women are also discussed - all of this supported by a careful description of the Lebanese in history and as emigrants to America.
"A Man Among the Helpers" is the unique story of one man's journey into the incredible world of Native American Spirituality. The author was an outsider, raised in modern society but was still welcomed with open arms into this ancient way of life. For 17 years he was taught the healing practices of the Lakota that can be traced back to the very foundations of the Earth. He was educated in these traditions and then expected to fully explain these concepts to the ceremonial participants. This book describes the mentoring process, the Native American concepts, the philosophies and actual ceremonies from a modern perspective. The power of the medicine wheel, the power of prayer, the responsibility of mankind, the sacred gifts to human beings, and the "most important thing to know" are included in this book! "A Man Among the Helpers" is a continuation of the author's responsibility to preserve these ancient ways for all. Within the text great wisdom and teachings from the Grandfather Nation are preserved. The information contained here is for each person with the desire and heart to find their own Vision.
