Abstract
Transform your organization into a "best place to work" by using brain-friendly strategies. It is an understatement to say that this is a difficult time to be a part of the American workforce, for employees and employers alike. The transformational drivers and trends existing in the current workforce create myriad challenges. The Brain-Friendly Workplace addresses the workplace challenges that closely rely on and affect people, such as upheaval in management, new and different employee motivators, diversity, maintaining civility in the workplace, and continuous transition and change. It then applies five "big ideas" from neuroscience and how they can be used to address these issues. By learning about these fundamental brain processes and adapting your organization's culture to fit them, workplaces can be transformed. Review the challenges facing workplaces today, and what's on the horizon. Learn five brain-friendly strategies that use our brains in the way they naturally function. Enhance your employees' strengths and confidence by applying these strategies and become a "best place to work" award winner. Complete with a look inside award-winning organizations, tips on putting the science to work, and an assessment tool, this book will help you measure and improve the level of brain-friendliness in your organization

Abstract
Anything worth doing is worth planning, tracking, and executing with excellence. Project management is the science and art of ensuring projects come in on time, on budget, and delight clients and users. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) can make every phase of a project and every relationship among project members run more effectively and efficiently. This booklet offers overviews of the MBTI instrument and of project management. It goes on to discuss the 16 types of teams and how their strengths and weaknesses can impact project planning and execution. Finally, five case studies apply type knowledge and insights to demonstrate how project roadblocks can be overcome or avoided all-together by being aware of and applying type concepts. Introduction to Type and Project Management is a timely and valuable addition to the robust Introduction to Type Library of application booklets.
