This is an announcement reprint pulled from the archive pages of my TalkingStory.org blog, thus it is not the normal sales page, but one preserved in very happy memory connected to our practice as a Managing with Aloha global community.
All the book publishing I have done has kaona: Each work came about as result of a HO‘OHANA story of some kind, and not because I’d set out to write a book, though I am now thrilled to have them! Sharing the back story connected to each work helps me keep my specific HO‘OHANA intentions and MAHALO thankfulness woven into our continuing practice of the learning each one represents.
Learn more about HO‘OHANA, MAHALO, and the values which have driven all my stories of ALOHA here: The 19 Values of Aloha. Living with Aloha remains such a gift in my life, a gift I’m honored to share with you.
Now shipping! Value Your Month to Value Your Life
This is what you, and conversing within our Talking Story community can Ho‘o — make happen…
Now published on Smashwords: Synopsis ~
This ebook will teach you about Value Mapping, a learning/doing process within the Managing with Aloha philosophy of worthwhile work. In building values-based habits you develop a way of belief-aligned living wherein good begets good, beginning with the inherent truths which already reside within you.
YOU know how this happened…
We started by declaring 2011 the Year of Better Habits.
Then you sent me a question about the Value Your Month to Value Your Life program I’d done before.
Answering that question spun off into a collection of 5 more posts.
Then I started thinking.
So I dumped those 5 value alignment posts into a new document, cleaned them up with healthy doses of additional information, and wrote a brand new 7,505 ebook (about 18 pages as a PDF). Here’s what it includes:
Table of Contents:
Prologue: Our Values Vocabulary
Introduction: The Managing with Aloha Story
Chapter 1 – At the Heart of the Matter: Our Values
Chapter 2 – Where did our values come from?
Chapter 3 – Value Immersion and Value Steering
Chapter 4 – The Logistics of Value Immersion
Chapter 5 – Your Projects with Value Steering
Chapter 6 – The Logistics of Value Steering
Chapter 7 – Take a Stand and Learn More
Addendum: 19 Values for Value Mapping
It’s selling on Smashwords for $4.99. If you have a Kindle I’m especially loving how it turned out in that format, however you’ll have to get it from Smashwords for now (very easy… how-to here. Be sure you open the documents folder in your Kindle).
One more thing: Thank you so much for pushing me to be better as you do.
I think you’ll especially like what I’ve added in that 19-value addendum: Each Managing with Aloha value has application suggestions for either value immersion, value steering, or both.
Our Year of Better Habits? Already is! Better and going for Best.
What shall we do next?
Value Your Month to Value Your Life presents a self-coaching process aimed at value alignment: We call it value-mapping in the Managing with Aloha sensibility for worthwhile work. Value mapping strengthens you. You can practice it immediately to improve the daily quality of your life, boosting your confidence by building better values-based habits.
Value mapping is a way that good begets good, beginning with the good which already resides within you in the form of your personal values. To illustrate, we’ll cover two workplace how-to’s: The Value of the Month program, and Value Steering for Projects, both which help foster healthy business cultures.
