José Ma Acosta, consultor de Alta Dirección y profesor de varias universidades vuelve a enriquecer y mejorar su ya clásico Gestión del Tiempo, que aborda un tema siempre de actualidad, como es el manejo de ese recurso, tan escaso como imprescindible. El autor ha sentido la necesidad de añadir en esta nueva edición ampliada y mejorada lo que sigue aprendiendo y recogiendo de sus continuos seminarios sobre la materia, a los que ya han acudido más de quince mil asistentes. Es pues una obra que nace y crece de las experiencias vividas en sus seminarios a lo largo de estos años. Gestión del Tiempo ofrece una visión clara y amena, tan rigurosa como práctica sobre los problemas habituales en el manejo cotidiano de ese recurso que se nos escapa entre los dedos. Su sistema, que ha sido calificado como INGENIERÍA DEL TIEMPO no está orientado a exprimir -¡aún más!- al ya presionado directivo. Ofrece las claves para descubrir lo que pasa y, sobre todo lo que funciona. Su objetivo no es tanto permitirle que trabaje más, sino que lo haga mejor, que controle y dirija su vida y que sea incluso más feliz. Hoy sabemos que, afortunadamente, a igualdad de condiciones, un profesional más feliz es más eficaz. Las opiniones sobre el libro de altos directivos de empresas importantes hablan por sí mismo del valor de la obra. “A través del libro de José María Acosta se puede conseguir que las horas de sesenta minutos sean utilizadas con satisfacción, buscando el equilibrio entre el trabajo y tus deberes personales". Manuel Chausa González Director de Recursos Humanos y Organización de Dragados Obras y Proyectos S.A. “El libro de José Ma Acosta no es un texto más sobre Gestión del Tiempo; es un libro práctico que nos marca desafíos, nos descubre facetas que desconocemos o tenemos olvidadas, nos hace disfrutar y nos ilusiona para que mejoremos como personas” Fernando A. Fernández. Consejero – Director General UBS España, S.A. Autor:José Ma Acosta Vera, doctor ingeniero industrial. Durante su carrera profesional ha asumido la dirección general de varias empresas, actualmente se dedica a la consultoría. Ha publicado varios libros y artículos en revistas y prensa nacional.

In The Five Dysfunctions of a Team Patrick Lencioni once again offers a leadership fable that is as enthralling and instructive as his first two best-selling books, The Five Temptations of a CEO and The Four Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive. This time, he turns his keen intellect and storytelling power to the fascinating, complex world of teams. Kathryn Petersen, Decision Tech's CEO, faces the ultimate leadership crisis: Uniting a team in such disarray that it threatens to bring down the entire company. Will she succeed? Will she be fired? Will the company fail? Lencioni's utterly gripping tale serves as a timeless reminder that leadership requires as much courage as it does insight. Throughout the story, Lencioni reveals the five dysfunctions which go to the very heart of why teams even the best ones-often struggle. He outlines a powerful model and actionable steps that can be used to overcome these common hurdles and build a cohesive, effective team. Just as with his other books, Lencioni has written a compelling fable with a powerful yet deceptively simple message for all those who strive to be exceptional team leaders.

An in-depth report that takes readers on a shocking tour through a macabre global underworld where organs, bones, and live people are bought and sold on the red market Investigative journalist Scott Carney has spent five years on the ground tracing the lucrative and deeply secretive trade in human bodies and body parts—a vast hidden economy known as the "red market." From the horrifying to the ridiculous, he discovers its varied forms: an Indian village nicknamed "Kidneyvakkam" because most of its residents have sold their kidneys for cash; unscrupulous grave robbers who steal human bones from cemeteries, morgues, and funeral pyres for anatomical skeletons used in Western medical schools and labs; an ancient temple that makes money selling the hair of its devotees to wig makers in America—to the tune of $6 million annually. The Red Market reveals the rise, fall, and resurgence of this multibillion-dollar underground trade through history, from early medical study and modern universities to poverty-ravaged Eurasian villages and high-tech Western labs; from body snatchers and surrogate mothers to skeleton dealers and the poor who sell body parts to survive. While local and international law enforcement have cracked down on the market, advances in science have increased the demand for human tissue—ligaments, kidneys, even rented space in women's wombs—leaving little room to consider the ethical dilemmas inherent in the flesh-and-blood trade. At turns tragic, voyeuristic, and thought-provoking, The Red Market is an eye-opening, surreal look at a little-known global industry and its implications for all our lives.
