Management writers have come up with many tools for explaining how different types of personalities can work best together. But they have ignored the most important personality difference of all - the difference between introverts and extroverts. This book is the first book to fill that gap. This book follows up from Sylvia Loehken's international bestseller Quiet Impact, published in the UK in June, and will be required reading for all managers and anyone who wants to understand their colleagues better.
Ja zum Nein
Author: Kirstin Nickelsen
Dieses Buch ist ein echter Selbstschutz-Leitfaden für alle, denen Grenzen setzen schwer fällt. Ihnen kommt ein „Nein“ zu Mehrarbeit oder Gefälligkeiten nur schwer über die Lippen, obwohl der eigene Schreibtisch schon randvoll ist. Stattdessen bleibt der hilflose Ärger über Chefs und Kollegen: „Immer ich, mit mir kann man es ja machen!“. Privat läuft es ähnlich, doch irgendwann ist das Maß voll, sind die Batterien leer. Davor schützt nur gekonntes „Nein“-Sagen – und das will gelernt sein. Wer nicht gut „Nein“ sagen kann, hat in der Regel Angst: vor dem Verlust des Jobs, vor dem Verlust von Zuneigung, Wertschätzung etc. Die Autorin hinterfragt diese Ängste und zeigt Wege, sie einfach und souverän zu bewältigen, eigene Grenzen zu erkennen und diese voll Selbstrespekt zu wahren. So gewinnt sich der Leser wieder als wichtigsten Menschen im eigenen Leben. Zahlreiche praktische Übungen, die sofort in die Tat umgesetzt werden können, machen dieses Buch zu einem besonders wertvollen Alltagshelfer. Die zweite Auflage wurde durchgesehen, korrigiert und neu gestaltet.

The Big Five for Life
Author: John P. Strelecky
Publisher: Piatkus Books
Thomas Derale, a mild-mannered businessman from Chicago, embodies leadership's greatest secret: his companies make fortunes, his people love him, and his customers are willing to wait weeks just to do business with him. At age 55, though, Derale is dying, and through a series of final encounters with key people in his life - primarily his wife, Maggie, and Joe, who regards Thomas as his mentor - we learn about his life, his unique business insights, and the true impact the man and his work has had on the people around him. A business parable with a difference, THE BIG FIVE FOR LIFE is a story of great leadership, savvy decision-making and is a powerful reminder that successful leaders are not just in the business of business - they are in the business of life.
