The Slow Professor

Author: Maggie Berg
Publisher: University of Toronto Press
ISBN: 9781442663107
Release Date: 2016-04-06
Genre: Education

If there is one sector of society that should be cultivating deep thought in itself and others, it is academia. Yet the corporatisation of the contemporary university has sped up the clock, demanding increased speed and efficiency from faculty regardless of the consequences for education and scholarship. In The Slow Professor, Maggie Berg and Barbara K. Seeber discuss how adopting the principles of the Slow movement in academic life can counter this erosion of humanistic education. Focusing on the individual faculty member and his or her own professional practice, Berg and Seeber present both an analysis of the culture of speed in the academy and ways of alleviating stress while improving teaching, research, and collegiality. The Slow Professor will be a must-read for anyone in academia concerned about the frantic pace of contemporary university life.

Un petit pas peut changer votre vie

Author: Robert Maurer
Publisher: Editions Anne Carrière
ISBN: 284337359X
Release Date: 2006
Genre: Success

Que nous souffrions d'un excès de poids chronique, d'une addiction, d'un développement de carrière insatisfaisant, de relations avec les autres frustrantes à répétition, d'une créativité étouffée, nous avons souvent tendance à penser que seul un changement radical, rapide, spectaculaire peut nous sortir de là. Et nous voilà presque découragés à l'avance devant l'ampleur de la tâche. Ou alors, une fois passée la bouffée d'enthousiasme initial, nous retombons dans nos anciens travers - et nous reprenons les kilos perdus. Or il existe une alternative pour atteindre ses ambitions, une méthode simple consistant à se fixer des objectifs modestes et progressifs, si faciles qu'il est impossible d'échouer. C'est le kaizen, utilisé par des entreprises dans le Japon de l'après-guerre, et que l'auteur, psychologue, a mis en pratique avec des patients, dont il relate ici les histoires. Appliqué dans des domaines aussi divers que l'épanouissement professionnel ou affectif, le développement de la créativité, la prise en charge de sa santé et de son corps, le kaizen, explique l'auteur, constitue une sorte d'auto-entraînement menant à un succès durable. Une analyse de nos comportements pleine de finesse et de compréhension, des exercices pratiques et des astuces qui nous aideront à dépasser nos résistances.
