Next Level Sales Coaching
Do you remember being "in the trenches" as a salesperson? What did you think of your sales manager? If you''re like many front-line sellers, you probably didn''t think she or he was a wonderful example of leadership who could inspire you to do your best in life and in work. The unfortunate truth is that many sales managers—well-meaning though they usually are—lack the skills and know-how to help their sales teams grow and achieve greater success. Over a combined 50 years of experience as salespeople, managers, coaches, and executives, authors Steve Johnson and Matthew Hawk have witnessed the do''s and don''ts of top performing sales teams. Next Level Sales Coaching is the culmination of their experience. In this book, they distill what they have learned working with organizations like Google, Bank of America, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, and many more. The result is a compendium of best sales coaching practices with the power to make any sales manager into an inspirational and transformational leader. At its heart, this book is about how to integrate a person-centered development mindset into sales environments. Readers will work through practical examples, including a self-assessment, to identify the best way to implement strong coaching programs within their organizations. Each chapter concludes with takeaway questions and tips that sales leaders can use right away. From goal setting to daily sales huddles, and sales development training to analytics, Next Level Sales Coaching covers the best practices that readers will want to implement to take sales management to the next level.

Palembang to Pine Gap

release date: Mar 18, 2019
Palembang to Pine Gap
The story follows CIA covert operations, the background to JFK''s assassination and the real story behind the Whitlam dismissal. What might have happened had the bullet that changed history in Dallas missed its target? If the Governor General of Australia, had not been "their man" would the conspiracy in Canberra have escalated to the assassination of Whitlam? The book starts with a real Japanese war criminal and a fictional Dutch family in Palembang. It begins with the execution of the Dutch man by Masanobu Tsuji who was the Operations genius on General Yamashita''s staff during the ten week charge down the Malay Peninsula to take Singapore in 1942. It traces the JFK assassination and those conspirators behind it and offers an alternate history, had the bullet missed in Dallas. It also reveals the actions of the queen and governor general, along with MI6, the CIA and the US ambassador to Australia who all conspired to bring down the Whitlam government. Whitlam had warned he would name all CIA personnel in Australia when parliament resumed on 11th November 1975 and stated his intention to terminate the Pine Gap lease when it was up for renewal four weeks after that date. The fictional Dutch van der Laan family lived in Palembang, Sumatra where Luuk van der Laan ran the Shell oil refinery specialising in the production of AVgas which the Japanese were desperately short of. Luuk came to realise that his family were living on the bulls eye of the target that was the oil and resource rich Dutch East Indies. Luuk is captured and beheaded by Tsuji but his wife, Mila, and two children Pieter and Anouk escape via flying boat to Broome and onto Sydney to establish a new life. She remarries and becomes a Labor backbencher and socialist providing a picture of the politics and a slice of life in "white Australia" during the 1950s. Luuk''s son Pieter, after service in the Australian Navy, flies for the CIA airline Air America in the "secret war" in Laos and discovers that his father was beheaded by Masanobu Tsuji on Changi Beach in Singapore. In following Tsuji, Pieter is led to Dallas in November 1963 where, because of the CIA''s need to distance itself from the assassination of JFK, Tsuji has been tasked with organising Korean assassins. Here the story meets a fork in the road with the bullet passing harmlessly between JFK and Jackie and the president serving a further two terms, withdrawing from Vietnam, dismantling the military industrial complex and effectively ruling the world according to the principles of the "Peace speech" which he had delivered in June 1963. The second ending is reality where JFK is assassinated and the global consequences that follow. This leads onto the coup d''état to remove Whitlam in 1975, revealing the reasons the conspirators were willing to go to such lengths to remove the leader of a sovereign country, supposedly an ally, but it has a surprise twist in the tail.

Faith in the Margins
If your ancestors could speak to you, what godly advice would they share? Two decades ago, Steve Johnson began receiving old Bibles of deceased relatives. As family deaths mounted, so did his collection of these weathered heirlooms. One day he opened the Bibles and uncovered page after page worn not just by time, but by notes recorded in the margins. He realized he had stumbled upon a treasure trove of accumulated family wisdom and insights on God''s Word. Motivated by this discovery, he went searching for notes from 15 family Bibles spanning 5 generations and nearly a century. The result: an inspiring 365-day devotional book like none other.

The Cat with a Giant Story

The Cat with a Giant Story
Steve Johnson - or Stevie J, as he''s known to the many who who love him - is the mercurial genius who was at the heart of three Geelong premierships. His 2007 season in particular is one of the great football stories and one that will be long remembered - he went from being arrested for drunk and disorderly conduct at the start of the year to Norm Smith medallist at the end. He''s always been a crowd favourite at Geelong, despite or maybe because of his can''t-look-away inconsistency in front of goal. And fans of other clubs have really warmed to him as well, because of his talent, his decency and his second-to-none football brain. He also has a fascinating story outside of football, having been on the ground during the Bali bombings and with a family touched by drug addiction and tragedy. Our upcoming Stevie J memoir, then, will be a fantastic read about a very impressive and much loved player, ably put together by ghostwriter Adam McNicol (who''s previously worked with Brendan Fevola, David Schwarcz and the Danihers). It''s the first major book from an absolute club favourite about Geelong''s record-breaking era. And even Geelong fans have to admit that the most exciting chapter could be the final one, if Stevie J kicks Greater Western Sydney into this year''s grand final ...

Tax Crimes

release date: Jul 15, 2008
Tax Crimes
This new title is one of six releases from the LexisNexis Graduate Tax Series. Tax Crimes embodies the dual goals established for the LexisNexis Graduate Tax Series: to provide graduate tax students with a solid foundation in the applicable rules and to enhance their skills in reading and applying complex statutes and regulations. To this end, the Assigned Readings emphasize the Code sections and other rule-based materials, including: the Department of Justice Criminal Tax Manual, the Internal Revenue Manual, the United States Sentencing Guidelines, and statutes governing other crimes which frequently are charged together with tax crimes, such as conspiracy, false statement, bankruptcy fraud, and currency offenses. This book addresses the numerous substantive and procedural issues that arise in the investigation, prosecution, and defense of tax crimes and related offenses. The early chapters of the book map the topography, providing an overview of criminal tax, describing the crimes under the Code and related crimes under other statutes, and developing the elements of and principal defenses to tax crimes. The middle chapters take a "life cycle" approach, tracking the stages of a criminal tax case from investigation to pretrial, trial, post-trial, and sentencing. Subsequent chapters address ancillary issues such as the forfeitures, disabilities, publicity, ethics, and civil tax liability and penalties. The concluding chapter summarizes the course and ties the various topics together with a comprehensive Problem. This eBook features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.
