Dieses Schlüsselerlebnis ist in jeder Karriere ein brisantes Ereignis, Ausgangspunkt für Erfolg und Misserfolg. Somit lohnt sich Coaching hier ganz besonders. Neben wissenschaftlichen Grundlagen, konzeptionellem und methodischem Rüstzeug enthält das Buch handfeste Praxisanweisungen. So können Coach und Klient den "Schonraum Coaching" erfolgreich nutzen, um Chancen und Risiken der neuen Position zu untersuchen, entsprechende Strategien zu planen und passende Handlungsmuster einzuüben.
Großartige Führungskräfte sind vor allem großartige Persönlichkeiten. Und eine große Persönlichkeit steckt in den meisten Menschen – muss aber freigelegt werden. Deshalb zeigt Alexander Groth in diesem Buch, wie jeder Manager seine starken persönlichen Eigenschaften nach und nach entwickeln kann. Am Ende des Prozesses steht ein Mensch, der sein Leben nicht auf Karriereoptimierung ausrichtet, sondern andere mit Demut, Akzeptanz, Vertrauen und Liebe führt. Nur so hinterlässt man Spuren in den Unternehmen sowie in den Köpfen und Herzen seiner Mitarbeiter. Dies ist die größte Auszeichnung, die ein Manager erreichen kann.

First 90 Days
Author: Michael Watkins
"Fredmund Malik has become the leading analyst of, and expert on, management in Europe (...). He is the most important voice - in theory as well as in the practice of Management" Peter Drucker Long before everybody else, Malik uncovered the false logic on which conventional corporate governance is grounded, using his comprehensive general management framework. He unmasked neo-liberalism's false and destructive teachings, and the errors caused by the mechanical application of financial management. In this book he reveals why manager scandals, company disintegrations and the collapse of the financial system result from false corporate governance. Malik then contrasts this against his cutting edge solutions to organizing and controlling the complex systems of the 21st century. A healthy economy in a functioning society requires companies to strive for customer value not shareholder value, competitiveness not size, real engineering solutions not financial engineering solutions. "Many practitioners hang on his every word and appreciate his candid language." Wirtschaft und Weiterbildung "Malik is listened to because management knowledge has never been more important." Süddeutsche Zeitung
Fredmund Malik describes what really matters in good management and explains the core issues of corporate governance, namely, customer value or focusing on service to the client. The prevalent conceptual models of corporate policy have become obsolete: the shareholder approach is the worst theory of all time; stakeholder theory is not practicable; trusting the stock market is a mistake. What counts is effective corporate governance, which has become an indispensable requirement for survival. The author shows: • how corporate governance should be structured • which financial parameters are truly important> • the optimal size for a supervisory board, and • which errors result when profit maximization is declared the company’s top objective.
Although culture is what gives companies the ability to survive, it is often addressed only after problems have emerged. While it is true that corporate culture cannot be put into numbers, it can be visualized and modeled using the author's Culture Map. The values underlying all corporate cultures are represented in seven colors which combine to form individual patterns. The Culture Map can be used as a basis for successful change and innovation processes, mergers, and integrations. When managers and employees see where they are trying to go, it enables them to take the appropriate decisions and actions. "This is the perfect (work-)book for those who want to know what makes their organization tick and who want to actively sculpt its success." Carina Kontio, Handelsblatt "An extensive introduction to the topic of corporate culture with vivid case studies and graphics. Very attractive design and great visual transfer." acquisa

Expert perspectives on SDI theory and practice The spatial data infrastructure (SDI) concept continues to evolve and become an increasingly important element of the infrastructure that supports economic development, environmental management, and social stability. Because of its dynamic and complex nature, however, it remains a fuzzy concept to many, and depending on their needs and circumstances, practitioners, researchers, and governments adopt different views of it. Developing Spatial Data Infrastructures: from Concept to Reality makes a timely contribution to the theory and practice of SDIs and breaks new ground in improving understanding of their relevance and value. It provides expert overviews of policies, concepts, standards, and practices associated with the design, implementation, and operation of SDIs. It introduces the concept of an SDI Hierarchy based on Hierarchical Spatial Reasoning, sets out the similarities and differences between SDIs operating within and between different jurisdictions, and identifies factors key to the success of SDI initiatives. Built on key contributions to the International Symposium on Spatial Data Infrastructure held in Melbourne in November 2001, this book is the first of its kind to provide address both the theoretical and practical aspects of developing appropriate SDIs. It offers unique, detailed discussions on the challenges and direction of future SDI development and thus provides an outstanding resource for those involved in building and maintaining SDIs and for GIS professionals and students.
Shaping the Game
Author: Michael Watkins
Publisher: Harvard Business Review Press
Michael D. Watkins' best-selling book The First 90 Days has become the business bible for accelerating leadership transitions. Now, Watkins zeroes in on the most critical skill leaders must master to secure new roles and accelerate their transitions: negotiation. In Shaping the Game: The New Leader's Guide to Effective Negotiating, Watkins draws from extensive research and practical consulting work to reveal four fundamental objectives that should guide new leaders' actions in every negotiation they undertake: create the most possible value, capture that value for yourself and your company, carefully tend to key relationships, and preserve your reputation. Watkins lays out hands-on strategies for becoming a world-class negotiator, including how to match your negotiation strategy to the situation, influence the perspectives of key counterparts, shape negotiation outcomes in your favor, and create the learning discipline necessary to become a world-class negotiator. Navigating the myriad complex, high-stakes negotiating challenges that confront new leaders, this book provides all the tools readers need to make the right moves up the career ladder—and succeed in those roles once they get there.
Collectively, neurodegenerative diseases are characterized by chronic and progressive loss of neurons in discrete areas of the brain, producing debilitating symptoms such as dementia, loss of memory, loss of sensory or motor capability, decreased overall quality of life eventually leading to premature death. Two types of cell death are known to occur during neurodegeneration: (a) apoptosis and (b) necrosis. The necrosis is characterized by the passive cell swelling, intense mitochondrial damage with rapid loss of ATP, alterations in neural membrane permeability, high calcium influx, and disruption of ion homeostasis. This type of cell death leads to membrane lysis and release of intracellular components that induce inflammatory reactions. Necrotic cell death normally occurs at the core of injury site. In contrast, apoptosis is an active process in which caspases (a group of endoproteases with specificity for aspartate residues in protein) are stimulated. Apoptotic cell death is accompanied by cell shrinkage, dynamic membrane blebbing, chromatin condensation, DNA laddering, loss of phospholipids asymmetry, low ATP levels, and mild calcium overload. This type of cell death normally occurs in penumbral region at the ischemic injury site and in different regions in various neurodegenerative diseases.
Voluntary organisations, whatever their size or purpose, need to function successfully in order to fulfil their aims and give staff a sense of purpose. This means that good management, which has clear objectives and sound finances, is essential.
