Win Win Conversations

A Communications Primer for the YouTube Generation

It’s not easy to forge strong connections in an era when short attention spans are the norm and individuals are more accustomed to texting rather than talking. The Art of WinWin Conversations is an innovative step away from the usual self-help books on business communication and human relationships that will transform your entire mindset on communication.

To avoid information overwhelm, the author has created an accessible guide in which important concepts are broken down into key points and revolutionary insights illustrated in an eye-catching, efficient manner; making it easy to learn and return to reference important sections at a later date. Seven key principles are outlined within a collection of “lessons” designed to help readers understand the difference between superficial communication and deep connections in the business setting.

This book was designed for executives and business leaders who are frustrated because complaints or needs aren’t being “heard” in spite of frequent communications with staff members.

Mental Resilience

Do you frequently feel stressed, overwhelmed, depressed, anxious? Do your thoughts sometimes have too much control over you? What if you could focus your mind and find peace in any situation?

We all face challenges—complex decisions, difficult personalities, constant demands on our time—but we don’t have to be at their mercy. By developing the skills outlined in this book, which create what author Kamal Sarma calls mental resilience, we become able to meet these challenges with clarity. Both warriors and monks have for centuries made training their minds, developing mental resilience, a key priority. Through this training, they are able to silence incessant mental chatter and live a life of awareness, peace, and focus. Kamal draws upon his roles as a former student of Eastern spiritual practices and a successful Western corporate advisor to present a step-by-step guide to developing mental resilience. Through a progressive program, Kamal provides models and metaphors that help you clear your mind of repetitive, unhelpful thoughts and improve your ability to make decisions. Learn how to reduce stress, maintain clarity in any situation, and discover an abiding calm within. The book includes links to audio downloads that clearly guide readers through with Mental Resilience Training Techniques.

The Leadership Leap

In the Leadership Leap, Kamal Sarma, a former monk who became a venture capitalist, presents 7 essential principles, “(un) learnings”, that you have to unlearn and relearn to progress in your personal or professional leadership journey.

With deep insights into the challenges that most leaders face in their corporate careers, Sarma provides an integrated and principle-centred approach to a new model of leadership that will enhance your career, business and life.

This book is free of fluff and is written in an easy to read format that gives you the essence in the shortest possible time. It’s written for a Twitter and Youtube generation who need the ideas explained quickly and efficiently.
