    RECOVERING FROM RELIGIOUS ABUSE WITH AUTHOR JACK WATTS!

    in Spirituality

    (Be in chat room & be in drawing for a FREE Autographed book)
    There is Nothing Like Recovering from Religious Abuse
    Until now, there has been nothing that addresses the problem of religious abuse, while also offering a solution for those victimized by it. Using an 11-step program, wounded Christians—those who have been used, abused, and discarded by self-righteous religious leaders—can reconnect with God in a healing, transforming way.
    After being victimized, most wounded people lead half-lives, consumed with anger, bitterness, shame, and pain. They question whether the best years of their lives have already passed, hoping they haven’t but suspecting that they have. They are prone to depression and acting-out behavior, which includes over eating, over spending, alcoholism, drug addiction, promiscuity, and family disfunction.
    Recovering from Religious Abuse explains how the dynamics of religious abuse works but, more importantly, it details a method for the abused person to identify what has happened, while providing a way to achieve full recovery. The key is for the abused person to recognize that God still loves them just as much as ever and that they can once again experience love, joy, peace, patience, and serenity—not just occasionally but routinely.
    If this has been your experience and you want to reconnect with God in a positive, meaningful way, you can. In a very short time—just ninety-one days—you can become stronger than you ever imagined possible, divesting yourself of the crippling chains that have imprisoned you since your abusive experience.

    INTERVIEW: David Russo, author

    in Business

    There are 17 Rules Successful Companies Use to Attract and Keep Top Talent. Author David Russo knows them all!



    When times are bad, the companies that will ultimately prevail are those that hang on to their top talent by continuing to garner their loyalty every day. While many companies may believe an economic downturn will automatically motivate employees to stay and perform at the highest levels, principally to save their jobs, that’s not true nor what data and case studies show. Even in the worst of times, companies need to continue to keep their employees engaged and motivated.

    “We hear about companies divesting themselves of workers, millions of them, as an avenue to survival and even success. But that’s not a reasonable tactic for long-term sustainability, or competitive advantage,” says David Russo, author of 17 Rules Successful Companies Use to Attract and Keep Top Talent: Why Engaged Employees are Your Greatest Sustainable Advantage.

    Russo, CEO of consulting practice Eno River Associates and former VP of HR for SAS Institute, provides leaders and managers with the rules to help retain and attract top employees.

    Here’s an excerpts from 17 Rules:

    Rule #13 - Treat Employees as Volunteers- Employees are far more willing to consider other work options, all the time. They are willing to risk their skills and aptitudes in the marketplace, including the skills you taught them.
