It's your job to turn anchors into rocket fuel, and motivate and inspire your team to the top. By digging to the core of each person, each culture and each problem, you uncover a roadmap to high performance; Spiral Dynamics in Action shows you how to guide your people through any changes and emerge stronger than before.

Integral Urbanism is an ambitious and forward-looking theory of urbanism that offers a new model of urban life. Nan Ellin's model stands as an antidote to the pervasive problems engendered by modern and postmodern urban planning and architecture: sprawl, anomie, a pervasive culture - and architecture - of fear in cities, and a disregard for environmental issues. Instead of the reactive and escapist tendencies characterizing so much contemporary urban development, Ellin champions an 'integral' approach that reverses the fragmentation of our landscapes and lives through proactive design solutions.

"Development from below" is not enough. The key to sustainable social change is development from within- change in individual and group consciousness that leads to collective capacity for self-management among people's organizations. This book is a conversation between a practitioner and a scholar of participatory development exploring the inner and outer journeys of both development facilitators and women villagers. It is grounded in the experience of manavodaya, a non-profit organization that has facilitated self help groups among rural poor and trained development practitioners in methods of dialogue and empowerment for over twenty years. The book presents a successful method of dialogue called collective reflection that has enabled significant changes in the lives of the participants-both development professionals and villagers alike.

"Spirituality in Nursing is thought provoking and Barnum offers some excellent material and food for thought."--Journal of Christian Nursing "This is a very thought-provoking book that asks many questions, often without answers. It could be used in an undergraduate or graduate course on spirituality or death and dying, or as in-service material in hospitals and other healthcare agencies. A very interesting chapter discusses near death experiences (NDE), a phenomenon that has begun to be accepted and has garnered more study."Score: 95, 4 stars --Doody's Can nurses be expected to deliver spiritual care? Should nursing claim healing as part of its mission? Should spiritual care be taught in nursing education? What do recent brain studies teach us about spirituality? Exploring these questions and many more, this new edition of Spirituality in Nursing provides a wealth of insight into current challenges presented to both practicing nurses and students. Newly updated, revised, and expanded, this third edition examines spirituality in nursing from an interdisciplinary perspective, drawing from theoretical, historical, religious, psychological, and even physiological contexts. In her thought-provoking exploration of this sometimes controversial topic, Dr. Barnum traces nursing's involvement with spirituality from its historical ties with religion to the current interest in new age and alternative health methods. The chapters offer engaging discussions of important topics such as the distinction between spirituality and religion, spirituality and research, humanism, and death and dying. Taking a problem-solving approach, this book serves as an invaluable guide to understanding the complex and expanding role of spirituality in nursing.
