A Better Day: A Picture Diary of Present and Past

Price
60.00 BBD

A photo diary of present and past I suppose they were looking for a BETTER DAY when my small ancesteral family left for Barbados in 1885. As a photographer I am interested in old family photographs. And when I realized that the small boy standing by his father side in the picture that sparked this story was the same person I knew as my great-grandfather, I got very curious.

He was still little when he died in 1965, but no longer a boy. He had seen other days, other places, he was full of stories. His mother had died during their stay in Barbados. According to family lore, she fell down the stairs in their house. I wondered; what stairs, where was Barbados, and why did they leave Norway to live on an island far away ?

Facing North: Tales from Bathsheba

Price
50.00 BBD

An antidote to the daily farrago of celebrity lives served up by the media, this book celebrates the true 'homo ordinarius' and his response to personal, natural and man-made challenges. It is a well prepared potpourri lovingly served with gentle humour and a dash of nostalgia. "If you keep facing north, you'll never see the sun rise." These are the words of the character, Three Schools, in the story Facing North. It is the story that gives the collection its name, Facing North - Tales from Bathsheba. It is Three Schools' way of saying that you won't find the right answer, if you are not looking in the right place. This applies to many of the characters in the book of short stories by Barbadian author Edison T. Williams.

The Science of Human Performance

Price
50.00 BBD

Consider this: The significant impact human beings have exerted on the planet throughout history has always been executed through human organizations.

What qualifies as a human organization? Any entity that exists within defined boundaries; that includes human resources; and that takes inputs from, as well as produces outputs into, its surrounding environment.

Since the beginning of time, humankind has tried to evaluate and enhance the effectiveness of its organizations. And yet, despite intense academic research, we still lack any kind of consensus on, or meaningful response to, the age-old question of what constitutes success or failure. In fact, the only agreement researchers appear to have come to is that organizational effectiveness cannot be universally modeled.

"The Science of Human Performance" begs to differ.

This daring dissertation establishes a conceptual model of organizational effectiveness. By first examining the critical role of quantitative performance measurement and then exploring the root meaning of organizational core values, it blasts beyond the limits of current thinking to a new understanding.

Through this new understanding, a meaningful, objective, consistent, and repeatable performance framework can be applied to any and all types of organizations-opening the door to a practically unlimited number of possibilities and potentialities.

Whispering of the Trees: A Memoir

Price
50.00 BBD

Storyteller Wilson weaves a complexly wonderful tale of a three-generation family comprising characters a-plenty spanning the range of human life and living, but at the same time unified by the elders' sense of responsibility for the welfare of the young, in other words, for their sense of place and purpose, their education, their exposure to and adoption of a sensibility based on care and compassion. Cynthia Wilson was born in St. Philip, Barbados in 1934. She worked as a high school English teacher in Jamaica and Morocco, before returning home in 1969. For nearly thirty years Cynthia has been representing her country and the cultural arts on national, regional and international boards, committees and in the foras of dance, theatre and tourism. Writing poetry and stories has been a consistent but mostly private part of her life and professional career. Cynthia's awards and honours include the Barbados Service Star, the Bussa Award, the University of the West Indies Humanities Scholar and Distinguished Graduate awards, and the Earl Warner Trust Lifetime Achievement Award.
