THE MOST TRUSTED SOURCE ON BECOMING A BETTER LEADER Leadership Matters Leadership is not a fad. It's a fact. It's not here today, gone tomorrow. It's here today, and here forever. Leadership makes a difference. Try naming one significant movement that wandered leaderless into the history books. And leadership matters most in times of uncertainty. The study of leadership is the study of how men and women guide us through adversity, uncertainty, hardship, disruption, transformation, transition, recovery, and new beginnings. Challenge is the opportunity for greatness. Given the daunting challenges we face today, the potential for greatness is phenomenal. People matter. Even in today's wired world, it's not the web of technology but the web of people that matters most. Leaders can't do it alone. Success in any project, organization, enterprise and in life has been, is now, and will continue to be a function of how well people work and engage with each other. Success in leadership depends on your capacity to build and sustain collaborative human relationships. You matter. People who become leaders don't always seek the challenges they face. Challenges also seek leaders. It's not so important whether you find the challenges or they find you. What is important are the choices you make when stuff happens. The next time you say to yourself, "Why don't they do something about this?" look in the mirror. Ask the person you see, "Why don't I do something about this?" The legacy that you leave will be the life that you lead.

Die liebenswerte Chaotin Stephanie Plum hat mit ihrer verrückten Familie alle Hände voll zu tun: Ihre Mutter hat sich im Bad eingesperrt, ihre schwangere Schwester dreht langsam durch, und ihre Großmutter treibt Stephanies Vater in den Irrsinn. Außerdem wären da noch Stephanies kompliziertes Liebesleben – und ihr Beruf als Kautionsjägerin: Stephanie soll den Inder Samuel Singh finden, der kurz vor Ablauf seines Visums spurlos verschwunden ist. Leider erkennt sie fast zu spät, dass ihre Nachforschungen sie direkt ins Visier eines Killers geführt haben ...
Einer der Fischverkäufer brüllte: „Schönen Nachmittag, ihr Joghurtfritzen!“ Dutzende gutgekleideter Leute hielten daraufhin Joghurtbecher in die Luft. Du meine Güte, dachte sie, wo bin ich denn hier gelandet?War das etwa ein Fisch, der da durch die Luft flog? Sie fragte sich noch, ob sie wohl träumte, als schon der nächste hinterher kam. Mary Jane Ramirez hat ein Problem – man hat sie zur Leiterin einer Abteilung gemacht, die firmenintern nur als Wüste und Giftmülldeponie bezeichnet wird. Diese Leute erledigen unmotiviert einen völlig langweiligen Job. Und nun erwartet man von ihr, dass sie ihrer Abteilung umgehend wieder Leben und Energie einhaucht ... Schließlich ist es ein Besuch auf dem Pike Place Fischmarkt, durch dessen mitreißende Atmosphäre Mary Jane erfährt, wie sie sich selbst und ihren Mitarbeitern Arbeitsfreude und Energie zurückgeben kann. Und bald merkt sie, zu welchen Leistungen ein Team fähig ist, das dynamisch, motiviert und lustvoll an seine Aufgaben herangeht. Der Pike Place Fischmarkt in Seattle ist ein realer Ort. Er stand bereits für ein Lehrvideo Pate, das in den USA von Tausenden von Unternehmen erfolgreich eingesetzt wird. Die Autoren haben die Erfolgsgeheimnisse von Pike Place in eine spannende Geschichte verpackt und so ein ungewöhnliches und höchst lesenswertes Motivationsbuch geschaffen. „Ich garantiere, dass jeder Manager von Fish! profitieren kann ... Ich bin begeistert von Fish!“ Ken Blanchard
Besinnung auf das wirklich Wichtige im Leben Die 5 fundamentalen Lebensweisheiten – verdichtet aus der Weisheitsessenz von über 200 älteren Menschen aus ganz verschiedenen religiösen, geistigen und sozialen Milieus. Gibt es das Geheimnis eines geglückten Lebens? Unzählige Bücher beschäftigen sich mit dieser Frage, die meisten von ihnen basieren allerdings eher auf Spekulation und den persönlichen Erfahrungen ihrer Autoren. Im Gegensatz dazu präsentiert Bestsellerautor John Izzo das lebendige Resultat einer soziologischen Studie, in deren Rahmen Hunderte von Menschen interviewt wurden. Izzo stellte ihnen Fragen wie „Was machte Sie am glücklichsten? “, „Was bereuen Sie am meisten?“, „Was zählt wirklich, und was stellte sich als unwesentlich heraus?“, „Was hätten Sie gern etwas früher gewusst?“ Daraus gewann er die Essenz der Lebensweisheit von über 200 älteren Menschen – Christen und Muslimen, Männern und Frauen, außergewöhnlich erfolgreichen und ganz „normalen“ Menschen. Überraschendes Ergebnis der Befragung: Unabhängig von Religion, Geschlecht, Hautfarbe und sozialem Status stimmten die Auskünfte weitgehend überein. Die „fünf Geheimnisse“, die John Izzo entdeckte, sind universell und können somit auch allen Lesern wertvolle und wirklich fundierte Lebenshilfe bieten. John Izzo zieht daraus die Konsequenz: „Wir müssen nicht warten, bis wir alt sind, um weise zu werden. Wir können die Geheimnisse des Lebens in jedem Alter entdecken, und je eher wir sie entdecken, desto erfüllter wird unser Leben sein. “ Geschenkbuch in liebevoller Ausstattung.
