Beyond Winning from the Author: Robert H. Mnookin. Conflict is inevitable, in both deals and disputes. Yet when clients call in the lawyers to haggle over who gets how much of the pie, traditional hard-bargaining tactics can lead to ruin. Too often, deals blow up, cases don't settle, relationships fall apart, justice is delayed. Beyond Winning charts a way out of our current crisis of confidence in the legal system. It offers a fresh look at negotiation, aimed at helping lawyers turn disputes into deals, and deals into better deals, through practical, tough-minded problem-solving techniques.

Beyond Winning from the Author: Suzanne McCray. Each year thousands of students apply for competitive national and international scholarships such as the Rhodes, Marshall, Gates Cambridge, and Fulbright. The competition for these awards is intense, and students look to scholarship advisors for support. Many universities have created an office or designated part of an office to assist these students, which has provided greater access for students who may not have applied previously or successfully. It has also increased the competition. The twelve essays in this collection from the 2003 National Association of Fellowships Advisors Conference held at the University of Denver. Essays by the heads of the Rhodes, Marshall, Gates, and Truman Scholarship foundations provide a sense of the philosophy and direction of their programs. The essays provide information on new initiatives, insights into the history and significance of the programs, and insider tips for application and interview preparation. Other essays focus on the advising and application process from successful advisors at various universities, how the U.K. higher educational system differs from that in the United States, and the key issue of ethics in the application process. All the essays demonstrate that the scholarship application experience itself a valuable one that is more about learning and service than it is about winning. This publication was made possible by the University of Arkansas Honors College.

Beyond Winning from the Author: Kim Payne. These days it seems everyone has a youth sports horror story—whether it’s about a tyrant coach obsessed with his team record that only plays the best kids on the team, or a parent who publicly berates his kid for not making a goal. But should it really only be all about winning? What about having fun, learning a sport, and developing athletic skills? Beyond Winning with Whole Child Sports offers an alternative approach to teaching sports to kids. It deemphasizes short-term goals like winning and youth championships and discourages the introduction of adult-oriented, league-structured competition. Instead it emphasizes training techniques and coaching strategies aimed at improving core strength, balance, and creativity in aspiring athletes, using an age-appropriate four-stage timeline, based on a child’s physical, psychological, and neurological development. Beyond Winning with Whole Child Sports provides frustrated parents with help in the form of advice and concrete solutions to common questions, and step-by-step instructions for helping young children develop athletic ability in an environment that’s less structured while encouraging athletic and personal growth. It also reveals how to avoid bullying, trash talk, and elitism.

Competition Gender And Management from the Author: Jane Dennehy. Competition is largely stuck in a stereotype of winning and losing which limits our understanding of the dynamic and how it can be effective in the work place. The scarcity and challenge models of competition which are found on the sports field are for many people the basis of their engagement. But competition in sport is bound by agreed rules and umpires and does not easily translate into the workplaceAre you competitive? This question is one many people struggle to answer in any detail because society generally turns a blind eye to competition outside of sport and trade in external markets. Using eight dimensions, competition is defined and discussed in this volume within the context of management to reinvigorate discussions of gender in the lives and different relationships men and women mangers encounter on a daily basis.

Obedience And Beyond from the Author: Andrew Picklyk. Obedience has always been considered a key aspect of faith: obedience to the word and will of God. If we do not do what is asked of us, and avoid doing what is prohibited, how can we say we truly follow His teachings? How can we claim to believe in His wisdom and guidance? And yet, when one looks more deeply into His teachings, scripture makes it clear that obedience is not enough. It is simply the starting point in our journey—a journey that will lead us to God and to becoming leaders in His sight. To blindly do as we are told is a beginning, but until we step into the kingship Jesus bought for us with his sacrifice at Calvary, we have not truly earned the place God has reserved for us in His kingdom. Christ asks us to follow Him until we learn to walk with Him—until we learn to lead with a servant's heart. But to do that, we must look beyond what is easy... or what is obvious. We must do more than obey. We must be more than servants following instructions. Instead, we need to think for ourselves, and act for ourselves, in accordance with his teachings. In Obedience and Beyond, his first published book, Andrew Picklyk uses scriptures, parables, and personalized sermons to clearly illustrate exactly what is expected of us and how we can move beyond servitude and into the kingship God has intended for us.

Beyond Winning from the Author: S. S. Hanna. In Beyond Winning, S. S. Hanna profiles the birth and adventures of Geneva College's women's soccer team, and in so doing universalizes the experiences of other college teams throughout the United States. Written from the point of view of the head coach, Beyond Winning follows the team's debut season from its early practice sessions to its last game. Laced with humor, irony, tension, characterization, and dialogue, this highly entertaining book goes to the practice fields, the games, the classrooms, the family dinner table, the coach's office, the field house, the campus snack bar, and on road trips to neighboring colleges. In addition to sketching the team's adventures, Hanna comments on important issues in women's and men's sports, with particular reference to Title IX and gender equity, "jockships" versus scholarships, winning and losing, recruiting and participation at the varsity level, and the wisdom of men coaching women. Hanna's book will engage a wide audience because it is written not only from the perspective of an athlete (Hanna played and coached college football) but also from the perspective of a scholar, a professor of English, and a published writer of comic prose.

What Makes An Elite Pitcher from the Author: Warren N. Wilbert. Elite baseball pitchers are elite for a reason. They seem to have it all: a variety of pitches that no one can lay a bat to; cool heads and confidence in their "stuff" when they get in a jam; and the kind of dexterity that makes difficult plays seem easy. Is elite status revealed through statistics? Though the author of this book considers statistics of both the traditional and sabermetric sort, he argues that the greats are proved not by broad statistical comparison with all other pitchers, but by their record against one another. In a thoughtful discussion of the evidence of head-to-head matchups, he finds the nine pitchers who make up the true elite: Cy Young, Christy Mathewson, Walter Johnson, Grover Alexander, Lefty Grove, Warren Spahn, Tom Seaver, Roger Clemens, and Greg Maddux. For each pitcher the book provides biographical information, career highlights, and a list of the feats that put him in the record books.
