Recharge eBook: 5 Simple Shifts to Energize Your Life  (Author: Heidi Hanna) 

Do you find yourself being overly tired, even after you think you’ve had a good night’s rest?  Are you continuously shifting gears and feeling you aren’t accomplishing anything you actually started on?  Are you thinking you may be suffering from “burnout” as your symptoms range from fatigue, insomnia, and/or dizziness?  When pressured to deliver a product, or meet a deadline, do you sometimes feel as if you are having a panic attack or the stress is so terrible you fear you may be experiencing systems of heart problems/attacks?” These are the issues discussed in Heidi Hanna’s eBook titled “Recharge”. Learn how to address these and other issues from being over-worked and in a constant state of stress. Discuss these strategies with Heidi and others in the DRJ community through the blog. Download the eBook @:  https://heidihanna.com/recharge/ and join Colleen and Heidi in the discussion of the book starting February 1st.

 

Heidi is CEO and founder of SYNERGY, a coaching and consulting company that specializes in customized health and wellness solutions for individuals and organizations.

Crisis Management: How to develop a powerful program 

by Regina Phelps  (Author)

Businesses and governments worldwide are increasingly being disrupted by more frequent natural disasters, mounting workforce violence, and skyrocketing cyberattacks. It’s increasingly a question of “when” – not “if” – they will face such a crisis. This book tells you how to prepare – step-by-step. The good news is that costs of being prepared are miniscule compared to the staggering hits organizations are increasingly taking. This book gets into the nitty-gritty of preparing for such crises – from building senior management support and involvement . . . to training top-flight crisis management teams. Specifically, it tells business continuity and crisis management professionals how to get their organizations into a constant state of readiness. That’s crucial since, of course, organizations don’t know the precise nature of the crisis in advance (timing, location, or impact). Think in terms of “instant-on.” And, they have to have wide range of contingencies to deal with whatever they may face. Regina Phelps tells you exactly how to do all of that step-by-step . . . and how to build support up and down the organization to make it happen.

What is the DRJ's Book Club

“Learning is not a spectator sport. “ ~ D. Blocher

What was the last business book you read? Or book to improve your competencies and help your career? We get so over-burdened with life and work we stop improving ourselves and then our careers stagnate.

 Join other continuity professionals as we dive into books that will enhance your knowledge and career. Then join the community of readers by providing comments, insights and your experiences through our online blog. Books will all be focused around improving our collective knowledge around business continuity and the competencies that will make us even more successful. Minimal time commitment with a huge reward.
