coverDillard

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Real Leadership! Are You Ready?” by Richard Dillard.

An award-winning performance solutions executive shares unusual insights about leadership – and how uncommon methods can significantly improve performance – in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

The only constant is change, and that’s certainly true in the business world with market globalization, rapid technology proliferation and the explosion of information. And few would question that the only variables that matter are leadership and operating culture when it comes to thriving in this type of environment. Yet in seeming opposition, real leadership remains elusive and the constructive organizational cultures they produce are few and far between. This new book by a seasoned professional with experience spanning forty-one positions in twenty-three organizations, twelve career fields and seven industries focuses on rethinking and reframing long-held notions of potential and performance, helping kindle the coals of personal transformation and strike the spark of organizational change that is truly remarkable.

“Real Leadership! Are You Ready?” distills knowledge gleaned by Richard Dillard, an expert in leadership development, performance and learning solutions, strategic planning, team building and problem solving, business process re-engineering and customer/vendor relationship management. The first part of the book is designed to simply elevate thinking by the introduction of ideas not normally associated with leadership, while the second part challenges readers to adopt a proven process for developing personal and organizational Leadership Platforms: the Leadership Enrichment LIFE-cycle (LEL-c).

Rather than offering “quick fixes” or instant solutions, Dillard cautions that working through the LEL-c with the help of this book will take commitment, time and hard work. But as he highlights, there is no alternative that “…automatically places you or your organization in a position to leverage your platform and produce remarkable results.”

Richard Dillard is a management consultant for SAIC and collaborates professionally with Human Synergistics International, AchieveGlobal®, Corpus Optima and Direct Measures International. Dillard is certified as a project management professional and has a black belt in Six-Sigma improvement methodology. A U.S. Marine Veteran and current Air Force Reservist, Dillard has both domestic and international experience with successful business turnarounds through organizational and workforce development solutions, earning high marks for his innovative best-shore program design, development and delivery.

Bedtime Story Stars Violin-Playing Cat Who Travels the World on Moonbeams; Anne E. Moses Releases New Children’s Book

coverMosesBennett

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Gatos Musikos – A Secret Told by the Moon” by Anne E. Moses.

Author and illustrator Anne E. Moses presents the remarkable tale about a wondrous cat who plays for sleeping creatures the world over in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

The Moon has a secret: His best friend is a magical cat who plays the violin and dances for all sleeping creatures, traveling on moonbeams around the world. This charming new children’s book shares all the places Gatos Musikos visits and the wonders he sees. No creatures are too big or too small, too urban or too remote for Gatos to play his little violin and dance his twirling dance for them as they dream.

 “Gatos Musikos – A Secret Told by the Moon” weaves a wonderful tale that showcases animals and cultures from around the world. When the Moon is young and dinosaurs still refuse to go sleep despite all his efforts to soothe them, a very tired baby brontosaurus finally drifts off. The Moon watches in amazement as a marvelous cat appears and begins playing his little violin and dancing a twirling dance, easing the baby dinosaur into his dreams. The Moon is so delighted he offers his moonbeams to the cat so he can play and dance for all of Earth’s sleeping creatures. Now Gatos entertains animals from a tiny spider in its web to great Indian elephants and everything in between. He even performs a Scottish sword dance on the banks of Loch Ness as a sleeping Nessie drifts nearby.

After a busy night of traveling on moonbeams, and as dawn breaks softly over the world, Gatos has one last song to play before placing his little violin back into its magical case – this one for his very best friend, the Moon. Children everywhere are invited to believe in moonbeams, secure in the knowledge that they will never be forgotten by this remarkable cat, for Gatos Musikos will play his music and dance his twirling dance for them in their dreams. Enchanting illustrations by the author bring this imaginative bedtime story to life.

Author Anne E. Moses, born in Rochester, N.Y., has lived for many years in Boston, Mass., the United Kingdom, Switzerland and Italy. She and her husband now live in Greece. Moses is a painter, designer and screenwriter, as well as a passionate renovator of old houses. She has also completed six volumes in The Gracie Guides, a series of travel and how-to books “paw-written” by their very clever English Cocker Spaniel, Gracie.

New Book by J.R. Tipirneni Shows Path to Peace, Prosperity and Happiness.

coverTipirneni

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Avatar’s Message for Peace, Prosperity & Happiness” by J.R. Tipirneni.

The author details teachings of Sri Sathya Sai Baba, who promotes peace, prosperity and happiness with practice of love and truth, in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

A new era will soon begin, known as a Golden Age, and the faithful will lead movement to bring about peace and prosperity. That’s the message at the center of this new book by author J.R. Tipirneni, a follower of the avatar Sri Sathya Sai Baba (God Incarnate). Devotees call Him Swami, who declared in 2011 that His mission is to recharge mother earth for two years and then initiate the new age, known as Sai Ram Raj starting 2013.   His mission is to transform human mind and elevate mankind to a higher conscious plane starting 2036. (These divine vibrations originating from Bharat must have confused Mayans and declared the end of the world in December 2012). It is made clear here to avoid confusion.

“Avatar’s Message for Peace, Prosperity & Happiness” book explains the paradox of why so many residents of Bharat (pious name for India) live in poverty yet so many Avatars are born there. The writer’s research into divinity led him to Sai Baba, “the Guru of gurus.” Tipirneni believes that Swami was more than an avatar – He was a manifestation of divinity as explained in Sanathana Dharma (ancient wisdom), representing all faiths, despite their different cultures and paths; and yet recognized by their common goal: universal peace, prosperity and love. Sai Baba urged his students to follow his teachings and start universal love, help those in distress and participate in the coming age. He also declared that His mission will not fail and it is final.

The book synthesizes Eastern knowledge and Western methodology, detailing mind boggling miracles manifested by Sai Baba to confirm His glory, power and His authority on divinity connecting humanity. “The indisputable connection between the divine and the mundane world has become very clear to me,” the author writes. “Universal love quenches all evils”. “Human values (truth, love, right conduct, non-violence and peace) and service is to be practiced.” Service and broad-mindedness promote Unity. Every person must practice Unity and Purity to develop divinity. It generates positive cosmic energy and elevates every one’s conscious to the highest level enhancing the present world order status after eliminating evil qualities, selfishness and excessive greed. Bharat must re-learn the divine techniques, they forgot as explained in the book. Then Bharat will regain the past glory and then teach the knowledge to the world for a long lasting permanent peace. In short, it is combining the best of divinity and the best of mundane world.  “Know thyself”.

Author Jagadeswara Rao Tipirneni, born in Andhra Pradesh, India, came to the United States in 1969 as a student to study engineering, began working and eventually settled there. He spent more than10 years working on his own inner transformation, which includes gems of wisdom extracted from swami’s teachings, discourses and from the monthly magazine “Sanathana Sarathi.”
