Hey, manager: please shut up already! Too many new managers, often promoted from the best of the front-line workers, lack the basic ability to interact effectively—speaking when they should be listening, and listening… well, not much. And when it comes to more advanced skills like improving worker performance, maximizing productivity, handling customers, and driving real success with their products, all bets are off. With no real background or training in management skills, today’s managers—even with experience—too often struggle to engage with their teams, maximize performance, and achieve great results.

Here’s the newer manager’s greatest ally: a quick-start guide that rapidly and accessibly covers the essential skills that good managers need to lead their teams effectively. Building on the simplest possible foundation—Shut Up and Listen!—this guide collects over 250 hints, tips, and tricks developed by an experienced manager and leader over more than a quarter century of technical management. Take your management career from zero to sixty—or discover how to lead your team to the next level—with one quick and easy read.

For many years, evangelist Patricia Kinard lived a life of illusions. She soon realized that life wasn’t about her plans, but rather those of the Father, who defines a purpose for every situation. In My Angelic Journey, Kinard narrates her journey after she discovered the true purpose God had for her.

In this memoir, she details her transformation from a child with a measure of faith into a teenager with increased faith, and finally into a mature woman with undoubting faith who was blessed with a vision and later instructed to become an evangelist. It shows how her trials and physical and emotional losses were replaced by joy when she put her faith and trust in God.

A powerful, firsthand testimony, My Angelic Journey offers a look into the life of a sinner who, after receiving a call from God, walked from a life of darkness into one of glorious light. It shares the story of one woman, chosen by God, who now guides others into a life of prosperity, dignity, love, and goodness based on a Christian foundation.
