The Unabridged William Shakespeare
by William Shakespeare, et al (Leather Bound - September 1997)
Average Customer Review: 3.8 out of 5 stars
Usually ships in 24 hours
Value Priced at: $19.98
  Susan Dunn's comments:
  Shakespeare has never been equaled in his understanding
  of  human emotion and ability to write about it. Great literature,
  art & music will increase your self-awareness, and this is
  what  EQ, emotional intelligence in built on.  Read one of
  the tragedies, King Lear, MacBeth, Othello, or Hamlet.  The
  definition of "tragedy" is when someone's character or
  personality does them in -- not circumstances.  In other words,
  it could've been prevented. pixel
  3. Complete Novels : The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter/Reflections in a Golden Eye/the Ballad of the Sad Cafe/the Member of the Wedding/Clock Without Hands)

Usually ships in 24 hours
List Price: $35.00
Our Price: $24.50
  Susan Dunn's comments:
  Carson McCullers has a way of getting inside others to show  
   you what's inside you, and her writing ("communication") is
   hypnotic.  (In your communication, pay attention to style, tone,
   rhythm...) pixel

Susan Dunn's comments:
Next, read about myths. Or take MYTHS course.  Myths are metaphors for the human experience; symbolic representation.  Myths are also other people's religion and will illuminate for you
the myths you believe in and live by.  They tell us about Jung's "collective unconscious."  Awareness of this is key to EQ, emotional intelligence. pixel

Usually ships in 24 hours
List Price: $26.95
Our Price: $18.87
Susan Dunn's comments:
It's been difficult for the workplace to accept that emotion, especially in "leaders," not only is okay, it's necessary (combined with reason and logic) for making good decisions.  And, of course, you're a leader in other places than work -- as a parent, committee head, cub scout leader, coach of a soccer team,  etc. Learn the buzz -- "creativity" = "innovation." pixel

Usually ships in 24 hours
List Price: $34.95

Basic, concrete and literal.  If you have a presenter who does this, I think they lack creativity, and personally I believe we TEACH what we ARE ... but, again, it's a start.   pixel

And one final suggestion.  I've noticed that people who weren't read fairy tales when they were little missed something.  The idea of symbolic possibility was not introduced along with pabulum.  However, it's never too late!  Grab a kid and read to them, or just read through the book yourself --"The Ugly Duckling," or "The Little Match Girl."
