Gibt es ein Werk, das für uns so wichtig und prägend ist wie Ilias und Odyssee für die Antike? »Ja!«, sagt der Erfinder der modernen Fantasy: Die nordische Sage von Sigurd und Gudrún! Und J.R.R.Tolkien dichtete selbst den ehernen Stoff der Edda und des Wölsungenlieds für unsere Zeit neu. Lesen Sie, wie Sigurd den fürchterlichen Drachen Fáfnir tötet. Wie er die schlafende Brynhild erweckt aus einem Feuerwall. Und wie am Hof der Nibelungen große Liebe entbrannte und auch großer Hass.

Gute Chefs essen zuletzt

Author: Simon Sinek
Publisher: Redline Wirtschaft
ISBN: 9783864149436
Release Date: 2017-04-10
Genre: Business & Economics

Ohne ein gutes, verlässliches Team könnten viele Führungskräfte ihre Ziele niemals erreichen. Doch leider werden viele Teams von internen Machtkämpfen, Streitigkeiten und den daraus resultierenden Misserfolgen ausgebremst – und die Führungskräfte schaffen es dann oft auch mit Leistungsanreizen oder Belohnungen nicht, ein Team wieder in die Spur zu bekommen. Doch warum sind hier manche Vorgesetzte oft erstaunlich hilflos? Die Antwort wurde Simon Sinek während einer Unterhaltung mit einem General des Marine Corps offensichtlich. Dieser erläuterte die Tradition: »Offiziere essen immer zuletzt." Was in der Kantine noch symbolisch gemeint ist, wird auf dem Schlachtfeld todernst: Gute Anführer opfern ihren eigenen Komfort, sogar ihr eigenes Leben, zum Wohl derer, die ihnen unterstehen. Sinek überträgt diese Tradition auf Unternehmen, wo sie bedeutet, dass die Führungskraft einen sogenannten Safety Circle, einen Sicherheitskreis, bilden muss, der das Team vor Schwierigkeiten von außen schützt. Nur so bildet sich im Unternehmen eine vertrauensvolle Atmosphäre. Der Sicherheitskreis führt zu stabilen, anpassungsfähigen und selbstbewussten Teams, in denen sich jeder zugehörig fühlt und in denen alle Energie darauf verwendet wird, die gemeinsamen Ziele zu erreichen. Chefs, die bereit sind, als letzte zu essen, werden mit zutiefst loyalen Kollegen belohnt und schaffen so konfliktfreie, motivierte und erfolgreich Teams.
