As the boys develop a friendship, they encounter issues of race, poverty and power, and are forced to question their beliefs.
Adjunct Professor of Management Alan G. Weinstein, PhD, addresses how executive coaching can lead to behavioral change in Executive Coaching and the Process of Change: A Practitioner’s Guide. Written for new and experienced executive coaches, and students entering the field, the book combines the theory of behavior change with first-hand experiences to demonstrate how practitioners can achieve positive, long-term change for clients.
History Professor René A. De La Pedraja, PhD, concludes his Wars of Latin America trilogy with 1982-2013: The Path to Peace.
