Insel der Wikinger

Author: Mary Pope Osborne
Publisher:
ISBN: 3785546203
Release Date: 2003-01
Genre: Magic

Die erfolgreiche amerikanische Kinderbuchautorin schildert im neuen Band der Reihe 'Das magische Baumhaus' (zuletzt 'Im Schatten des Vulkans' und 'Im Land der Drachen', beide ID 34/02) eine magische Reise des 8jährigen Philipp und seiner 7jährigen Schwester aus den heutigen USA in ein mittelalterliches Kloster in Irland. Die Mönche schreiben u.a. alte irische Sagen auf, von denen die Kinder einen Band mitnehmen und so retten. Nur knapp entkommen die beiden einem Überfall von Wikingerschiffen. Die Geschichte ist mäßig spannend, da der gute Ausgang durch die magische Kräfte der Kinder von Anfang an sicher ist. Der geschichtliche Wissensgewinn ist sehr bescheiden, die Leser weder viel über die mittelalterliche klösterliche Kultur Irlands noch über die Wikinger erfahren und auch dies sind fast ausschließlich recht banale Allgemeinplätze (Das Mittelalter war "dunkel", die Klöster bewahrten die Kultur, die Wikinger waren gefährlich usw.). Die recht klobig wirkenden SchwarzWeißZeichnungen überzeugen ebenfalls nicht. Insgesamt ein überflüssiger Band, dessen Anschaffung nicht empfohlen werden kann. . Philipp und seine Schwester reisen mithilfe des magischen Baumhauses in ein mittelalterliches irisches Kloster, das von Wikingern bedroht wird. Ab 8.

Genre: Business & Economics

Der Leistungsdruck im Management nimmt seit Jahren kontinuierlich zu. Gerade Topmanager müssen heute beinahe rund um die Uhr eine Top-Performance erbringen. Das gelingt je nach Typ unterschiedlich gut, mäßig oder auch gar nicht. Führungskräfte lassen sich in drei Kategorien einteilen: "Sinkers", "Floater" und "Swimmers" – "Sinkers" sind überarbeitet und überfordert. Sie versuchen immer noch mehr, anstatt gezielt zu arbeiten, und übersehen dabei Warnsignale, die den kurz bevorstehenden Burn-out einläuten. "Floater" dümpeln in einem Stadium angenehmer Betäubung vor sich hin, unfähig, ihr volles Potenzial auszuschöpfen. Sie versuchen einfach, sich im Berufsalltag über Wasser zu halten. Der "Swimmer" hat dagegen langfristig Erfolg und das Zeug zum Top-Performer. Er ist stets voller Energie, Tatendrang, Leidenschaft und hat Einfluss. Jogi Rippel und Scott Peltin zeigen Führungskräften, wie sie zu "Swimmers" werden. Zahlreiche einfache und bewährte Strategien und Tools helfen Führungskräften, gewohnte Verhaltensmuster aufzugeben. Dazu bekommen sie wertvolle Tipps für Ernährung, Bewegung und Regeneration. Schon nach kurzer Zeit spürt man die Wirkung des Programms – geistig, mental und körperlich. Und bereitet die nächste Karrierestufe vor.
