Genre: Self-Help

Children in today's world are inundated with information about who to be, what to do and how to live. But what if there was a way to teach children how to manage priorities, focus on goals and be a positive influence on the world around them? The Leader in Meis that programme. It's based on a hugely successful initiative carried out at the A.B. Combs Elementary School in North Carolina. To hear the parents of A. B Combs talk about the school is to be amazed. In 1999, the school debuted a programme that taught The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Peopleto a pilot group of students. The parents reported an incredible change in their children, who blossomed under the programme. By the end of the following year the average end-of-grade scores had leapt from 84 to 94. This book will launch the message onto a much larger platform. Stephen R. Covey takes the 7 Habits, that have already changed the lives of millions of people, and shows how children can use them as they develop. Those habits -- be proactive, begin with the end in mind, put first things first, think win-win, seek to understand and then to be understood, synergize, and sharpen the saw -- are critical skills to learn at a young age and bring incredible results, proving that it's never too early to teach someone how to live well.

Schnelligkeit durch Vertrauen

Publisher: GABAL Verlag GmbH
ISBN: 9783897499089
Release Date: 2009
Genre: Business & Economics

Vertrauen bildet die Grundlage für alle Beziehungen und jede Form der Kommunikation, für alle Individuen, Unternehmen, Organisationen und Zivilisationen rund um den Globus. Mangelndes Vertrauen zerstört auch die erfolgreichsten Unternehmen, die mächtigste Regierung und die florierendste Wirtschaft. Trotz der offensichtlich immensen Macht von Vertrauen spielt es im realen Geschehen kaum eine Rolle und gehört wohl zu den am meisten unterschätzten Faktoren unserer Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft. Stephen M. R. Covey zeigt in seinem viel beachteten Buch „Schnelligkeit durch Vertrauen“, dass Vertrauen kein weicher Faktor ist, sondern ein pragmatischer und realer Wert, den man erschaffen und zur Handlungsgrundlage machen kann. Er präsentiert konkrete Vertrauensregeln und Prinzipien und zeigt, wie auf allen Ebenen eines Unternehmens Vertrauen aufgebaut, gelebt und gefördert werden kann. Seine These: Vertrauen ist eine Schlüsselkompetenz und ein Art Teilchenbeschleuniger für die Wirtschaft.

Rastst tte Mile 81

Genre: Fiction

An der Wegmarkierung Mile 81 des Maine-Turnpike steht eine mit Brettern vernagelte Raststätte. Hier treffen sich sonst die älteren Schüler, um zu trinken und Dinge zu tun, die ältere Schüler gern in Schwierigkeiten bringen. Der 11-jährige Pete Simmons ist heute aber allein hier, weil er weiß, dass die Großen woanders sind. Er findet eine halbvolle Wodkaflasche und trinkt davon so viel, dass er benebelt einschläft. Kurz darauf rollte ein schlammverdreckter Kombi (komischerweise hat es in Maine seit Wochen nicht geregnet) auf den von Unkraut überwachsenen Parkplatz, obwohl auch der Tankstellenbetrieb vor Längerem eingestellt wurde. Die Fahrertür öffnet sich, aber niemand steigt aus. Doug Clayton, Versicherungsvertreter aus Bangor, ist ein gottesfürchtiger Mensch. Der verlassen dastehende Kombi weckt den Samariter in ihm. Er biegt von der Schnellstraße ab und hält mit seinem Prius hinter dem schlammigen, kennzeichenlosen Kombi. Etwas später hält auch Julianne Vernon, die gerade mit ihrem Pferdeanhänger unterwegs ist. Die beiden leeren Autos haben sie neugierig gemacht. Sie findet Claytons zerbrochenes Handy neben der offenen Kombitür – und kommt dieser dabei selbst zu nahe. Als Pete Simmons aus seinem Dämmerschlummer erwacht, steht ein halbes Dutzend Autos an der Raststätte Mile 81. Zwei Kinder – Rachel und Blake Lussier und ein Pferd namens Deedee sind die einzigen Lebewesen, die er sieht. Es sei denn, man zählt den Kombi dazu.

The 8th Habit

Release Date: 2013-01-08
Genre: Business & Economics

In the 7 Habits series, international bestselling author Stephen R. Covey showed us how to become as effective as it is possible to be. In his long-awaited new book, THE 8th HABIT, he opens up an entirely new dimension of human potential, and shows us how to achieve greatness in any position and any venue. All of us, Covey says, have within us the means for greatness. To tap into it is a matter of finding the right balance of four human attributes: talent, need, conscience and passion. At the nexus of these four attributes is what Covey calls voice - the unique, personal significance we each possess. Covey exhorts us all to move beyond effectiveness into the realm of greatness - and he shows us how to do so, by engaging our strengths and locating our powerful, individual voices. Why do we need this new habit? Because we have entered a new era in human history. The world is a profoundly different place than when THE 7 HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLE was originally published in 1989. The challenges and complexity we face today are of a different order of magnitude. We enjoy far greater autonomy in all areas of our lives, and along with this freedom comes the expectation that we will manage ourselves, instead of being managed by others. At the same time, we struggle to feel engaged, fulfilled and passionate. Tapping into the higher reaches of human genius and motivation to find our voice requires a new mindset, a new skill-set, a new tool-set - in short, a whole new habit.

Effective Leadership Management

Publisher: AuthorHouse
ISBN: 9781452060378
Release Date: 2007-10-12
Genre: Business & Economics

Effective Leadership Management is about theory and practice of integrating styles, skills and character of today's chief executive officers. It is about what a leader or a manager does to bring about staff efficiency and effectiveness. A leader or a manager is effective when he or she brings about the desired results for the organization by using different approaches to the development of personal and interpersonal effectiveness of the staff by daily decision making, staffing, planning, forecasting, nurturing, coaching, directing, organizing, marketing, encouraging and controlling quality. Effective Leadership Management emphasizes leadership as the intersection of character, knowledge, skill and desire. Management supervises tasks but leadership deals with people who supervise tasks. In other words, management is doing things right, while leadership is doing the right things. Effective Leadership Management styles are achievable by using mixtures of different styles as situation arises. Each leader has to choose style(s) that suits his or her personality and that best represents the values of the organization. In all, a leader has to be transparent with all daily dealings, communicates effectively, be honest with staff members, showing an unbending integrity, at the same time be knowledgeable or skillful about the tasks at hand, and be easy to follow. When an employee is encouraged, motivated and positively appraised, his or her performance will be enhanced. This book strongly emphasizes theory Z by Dr. Ouchi in which a management or leadership style focuses on a strong company philosophy, a distinctive corporate culture, long-range staff development, and consensus decision making. When decisions and policies that relate to customers are being made by an organization, it is important to understand that others such as customers, community, staff, suppliers and stake holders opinions should be considered. This is called a holistic view approach to decision making. It is my hope that readers will find this book useful either as a church leader, school principal or university president, hospital or nursing home administrator, nurse manager or departmental head, company owners or CEO that an effective and efficient leader or manager cannot lead or manage alone by skills or knowledge, but with styles, character, personality, and by example.

Happiness Paradox

Author: Ziyad Marar
Publisher: Reaktion Books
ISBN: 9781861896087
Release Date: 2004-01-04
Genre: Education

The dream of a happy life has preoccupied thinkers since Plato, and in modern times it has become one of the signature tunes of our age – the rise of therapists, gurus, New Age cults and the use of Prozac are familiar indicators of how ubiquitous the pursuit of happiness has become within Western culture. The Happiness Paradox examines how this modern obsession has evolved. Ziyad Marar shows how the state of mind we seek remains highly elusive, and much of the energy devoted to searching for happiness is wasted or even self-defeating. The author argues that happiness is a deceptively simple idea that will always be elusive because it is based on a paradox: the conflict between feeling good while simultaneously being good. It is the conflict, for example, between the desire to break rules, for adventure or self-expression, and the need to follow them to gain the approval of society; these tensions permeate what Freud called the two central parts of a happy life: love and work. Drawing on a wide and varied range of sources – from psychology, philosophy, history, popular novels, television and films – this book will engage all those who are looking for meaning within their lives. It challenges the conventional search for happiness, while suggesting a bolder way to live with one of the central paradoxes of our time.
