Project Management Pocketbook from the Author: Keith Posner. The Project Management Pocketbook is a practical, step-by-step guide to managing a project through to completion. It looks at each key stage and identifies the management techniques that can be applied. From objective-setting through to implementation, the book stresses the importance of good communication, teamworking and influencing skills. All too often, books on this subject cover the process of project management and not the people aspects. This Pocketbook addresses both. "Project management requires a multitude of skills - from vision and planning, to monitoring, communication, leadership and, of course, delivery. This pocketbook pulls together best practice from these diverse areas into one simple, easy-to-read booklet. Refreshingly, it has been written from a general business perspective (rather than I.T.), and is therefore applicable to anyone managing change."Adrian Guttridge, Vice President UK & Ireland, EDS "A lively guide based on real events that any of us may encounter in our everyday life at work or (as I found out after reading this) at home."Johann de Waal, Director, International SOS Insurance Services Ltd

Behaviour Management Pocketbook from the Author: Peter Hook. It's every new teacher's first concern and it's an area about which even the most experienced teachers are never complacent - how to control their classes. This new edition of the Teachers Pocketbooks top-selling title is a practical, authoritative guide to creating calm classes and focused, co-operative students. The book starts from the premise that teachers cannot control the behaviour of children; instead they must seek to influence it. Teachers are most effective in managing behaviour when they focus on antecedents and consequences. This means building relationships and using preventative strategies followed by consistent use of logical consequences. The book covers different styles of behaviour management; getting the basics right; eight core principles and a ten-step discipline plan. A section entitled developing the toolkit offers a broad range of strategies for teachers to use. All are explained in practical, classroom terms with examples of phrases to use for maximum effectiveness. Underpinning the repertoire of techniques is a strong framework: the 4Rs rights, responsibilities, rules and routines. Liberal use of cartoons, diagrams, mnemonics and other visual devices reinforce the message and fast-track understanding. "An invaluable guide for all adults who work with children. This book will change the way you think and act in the classroom and should be compulsory reading." Tim Plumb, Head Teacher, Woolwich Polytechnic School "A fantastic read. Buy copies for your staff this year - they'll become more effective by using the approaches outlined in this book." Sarah Skinner, Head, Claydon High School "Provides realistic and effective strategies to empower all teachers to create and establish a positive learning environment for all. I recommend it." Teresa Copeland, Assistant Principal, Strood Academy

Coaching In Schools Pocketbook from the Author: Andy Vass. Author Andy Vass’s definition of coaching emphasises the process of learning.

Whether you’re coaching or being coached, the Coaching in Schools Pocketbook can help you to become ‘even better’ in your role. Find out how solution-focused tools like ‘exceptions’ and ‘scaling’ enable high quality, thoughtful dialogues and how becoming skilful at asking questions, listening and providing feedback can develop both coach and coachee. Andy’s RIGAAR model for framing a coaching conversation shows, step by step, how to establish and achieve goals that lead to exciting and positive change. Whether you’re an NQT, a Headteacher, or Middle Leader, you’ll be inspired by examples from teachers and students describing, in their own words, how coaching has worked for them and for their schools, improving performance and raising attainment at every level. Coaching in Schools updates and replaces the Coaching & Reflecting Pocketbook.
