Spiral Dynamics

Author: Don Edward Beck
Publisher: J. Kamphausen Verlag
ISBN: 9783899017502
Release Date: 2013-10-28
Genre: Self-Help

Komplexität, Beschleunigung, Dynamik - die Wirtschaft brodelt und kocht. Führung gleicht einem Tanz auf dem Vulkan, und immer mehr Manager müssen eine Flut von Informationen in neue Klarheit überführen. Genau hier setzen Don Beck und Christopher C. Cowan mit ihrem Modell von Spiral Dynamics an. Als Weiterentwicklung des Konzepts biopsychosozialer Systeme von Clare W. Graves, das vom kanadischen Magazin Maclean's als "die Theorie, die alles erklärt" bezeichnet wurde, setzt Spiral Dynamics neue Maßstäbe für das Verständnis komplexer Systeme. Auf der Basis so genannter Werte-Meme (WMeme), die Lebensstile, Glaubensmuster und Einstellungen hervorbringen, entwickeln die Autoren eine Methode, mit der sich Unternehmen, Individuen und wirtschaftliche Entwicklungen analysieren, bewerten und transformieren lassen. Spiral Dynamics eröffnet einen völlig neuen Zugang zu Nachhaltigkeit, Diversity-Management und Leadership, denn Motivationsanreize oder ethische Richtlinien "funktionieren" nur, wenn sie die aktuelle Entwicklungsebene der Adressaten ansprechen.

Pronouncing English

Author: Richard V. Teschner
Publisher: Georgetown University Press
ISBN: 1589010027
Release Date: 2004
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

Pronouncing English is a textbook for teaching English phonetics and phonology, offering an original "stress-based" approach while incorporating all the standard course topics. Drawing on current linguistic theory, it uniquely analyzes prosody first, and then discusses its effects on pronunciation--emphasizing suprasegmental features such as meter, stress, and intonation, then the vowels and consonants themselves. Distinguished by being the first work of its kind to be based on an exhaustive statistical analysis of all the lexical entries of an entire dictionary, Pronouncing English is complemented by a list of symbols and a glossary. Richard Teschner and M. Stanley Whitley present an improved description of English pronunciation and conclude each chapter with suggestions on how to do a better job of teaching it. An appendix with a brief introduction to acoustic phonetics--the basis for the perception vs. the production of sounds--is also included. Revolutionary in its field, Pronouncing English declares that virtually all aspects of English pronunciation--from the vowel system to the articulation of syllables, words, and sentences--are determined by the presence or absence of stress. The accompanying CD-ROM carries audio recordings of many of the volume's exercises, more than 100 text and sound files, and data files on which the statistical observations were based.
