Managing Small Enterprises: Models For Developing The Competitive Performance of Small Enterprises
Author: Umasuthan Kaloo, PhD
First Published: 2010
ISBN: 978-983-72-0632-8
Price: Soft Cover - RM 59.00 (US$ 18.00); Hard Cover - RM 89.90 (US$ 27.00)


In most countries, small enterprises account for more than 95% of all business enterprises. In terms of their contribution to GDP, small enterprises may fall behind large enterprises, but they usually run neck to neck with large enterprises in generating job opportunities and creating social stability. Today's small enterprises are also the seedbed of tomorrow's large enterprises.

In this book, the author explains how the distinguishing features of clusters of small enterprises, which differentiate them not only from other classes of business organizations but also from each other, pose different challenges to managers. The author uses several case studies sourced from Malaysia, the United Kingdom, Thailand and Taiwan to illustrate these different challenges faced by managers and how they have been addressed in different business environments. The book closes with guidelines for what managers of small enterprises and managers of supporting national and international agencies can do to develop the competitive performance of the small enterprises under their care.

                                   
A Must for Every Entrepreneur and Manager

The purpose of this book is to share with anyone whose function is to train, teach or coach others in any subject matter, a training technique that has been developed, tried, tested and successfully practiced over a number of years.

The training methods are put into a simplified, yet powerful, programme - a proven method of imparting information that uses an understanding of behavioural pattern, coupled with knowledge of the human psyche.

Training is ultimately ineffective if it does not inspire the learner to apply what is being learned. This book shows you how to integrate intellectual, emotional and physical elements to achieve 'super learning'. Among others the methods described include:  

Establishing rapport through body language
Techniques of effective communication including logical presentation, mental simulation and subliminal influencing

MING COURT was the name of one of the luxury hotels in Kuala Lumpur.

The author was directly involved in this crisis and had intimate knowledge of what had taken place behind the scene. It was not a 'sandiwara' (play acting) as most people were made to believe. It was a real political quarrel between Tun Abdul Rahman Yaakub, the former Tuan Yang Terutama (Head of State) Sarawak, and Datuk Abdul Taib Mahmud, the Chief Minister of Sarawak.

Author: Susan Bagyura
First Published: 2013
ISBN: 978-983-72-0649-6
Price: RM 27.50 (US$ 9.00)


Success in every area of business and personal life is all about the mindset. The economy is all about mindset. While one person complains about how bad business is, someone else is in the same industry and the same marketplace is experiencing his or her greatest growth. Instead of teaching people what to do, Susan Bagyura shows them how to take the lid off their thinking and go after what they really can do!

If you want your company to perform at optimum levels, then you must change the thinking of your people, starting at the top. It is critical to work from a higher level, not a lower one. Whatever is happening in the business is a reflection of what is happening in the mind of the top person. Mindset comes first...behaviors and results follow. Change the mindset and be prepared for quantum leaps in performance.

Leadership starts with the individual. We need to know how to lead ourselves and we must act like a leader now. Susan Bagyura's desire is that people gain what they need to become better leaders - whether it is themselves, an individual, a team or a corporation. You can immediately take her tips and start implementing them. Everything is down to action. Ideas without action are useless.

The Visionary Leader is a great first step to working with Susan and changing your business, your life and the world around you for the better.

Compelling Conversations: Questions & Quotations on Timeless Topics
Author: Eric H. Roth and Toni Aberson
First Published: 2013
ISBN: 978-983-72-0650-2
Price: RM 25.00 (US$ 8.00)


The art of conversation, once considered the sign of a civilized individual, seem less common today. Yet I treasure the moments of sharing experiences, collecting news and exchanging ideas. I make a point of knowing my neighbours, allowing casual greetings to become long conversations, and making time to explore in depth the feelings and perceptions of friends and relatives. These natural conversations provide information, encouragement, laughs and pleasure.

Many people say that they are too busy to have long talks. Other people prefer to watch television, play computer games or listen to the radio rather than talk to relatives and friends. Sometimes people feel too shy to speak to the people next to them. Many of us have forgotten how to hold good, deep conversations, or even a friendly chat on the phone. I suspect this lack of real communication lessens their daily joy.

Of course, people learning English as a second, third or fourth language face even more barriers to a satisfying conversation in English. First, English remains a confusing, difficult and strange language. It's easy to feel uncomfortable when speaking in this new tongue. What questions do I ask? How can I keep a conversation going? What vocabulary words are needed? How do I show agreement, or disagreement, in  a lively, yet polite way? How can I share my experiences in a clear manner? How can I have better, more engaging conversations in English?

Compelling Conversations: Questions & Quotations on Timeless Topics addresses these issues for both native and non-native speakers. The focus is on learning by doing and making good mistakes. (Good mistakes, by the way, are natural mistakes that help us learn so we can make different and better "good mistakes" next time.)

Compelling Conversations gives you the tools and phrases to talk more and listen better to friends and strangers in English.
