Dein Wille geschehe
Author: Stefan Merath
Publisher: GABAL Verlag GmbH
Sie sind Selbstständiger oder Unternehmer? Sie haben ein Team unter sich, das einfach nicht das macht, was es soll? Stellen Sie sich häufiger die Frage, ob Ihre Mitarbeiter überhaupt wissen, was sie in Ihrem Unternehmen machen? Dem 42-jährigen Unternehmer Marc ergeht es ähnlich. Das gesamte Unternehmen läuft nicht in die Richtung, in die er es eigentlich steuern möchte, was in einer Unternehmenskrise endet. Er spürt, dass es so nicht mehr weitergehen kann, und beginnt ein Führungscoaching bei Wolfgang Radies. Seine Hoffnung: ein paar Führungsmethoden, damit sein Wille endlich im Unternehmen geschehe. Aber schnell erkennt Marc, dass es um sehr viel mehr geht. Was er sich wirklich wünscht, ist Selbstbestimmung, Freiheit, Wirksamkeit und Erfüllung. Und er erkennt, dass dies mit ein paar Führungsmethoden nicht zu erreichen ist. So begibt er sich auf eine Abenteuerreise, in deren Verlauf er lernt, sein Unternehmen, sich selbst und Führung auf eine völlig neue Art und Weise zu sehen und schließlich anders, wirksamer zu handeln. Dieses Buch richtet sich an Unternehmer mit drei bis 50 Mitarbeitern, nicht wie die meisten Führungsbücher an Manager von Konzernen. Anders als Manager arbeiten Unternehmer am Unternehmen und am Führungssystem. Manager hingegen sind Projektleiter, die im Führungssystem des Unternehmers arbeiten müssen. Das Buch ist somit das erste und einzige Führungsbuch speziell für Unternehmer! Was das Buch für Sie bietet: • Es bietet ein Ordnungssystem, in das Sie alle anderen Führungstheorien einordnen und damit die Verwirrung um Führung dramatisch reduzieren können. • Das Buch zeigt, an welcher Stelle Ihrer Persönlichkeit Sie wie ansetzen müssen, um optimale Führungsergebnisse zu erzielen. • Das Buch erklärt, wie Sie Ihr Team so ausrichten, dass alle Teammitglieder von alleine in dieselbe Richtung laufen. • Nach der Lektüre kennen Sie den zentralen Ansatzpunkt, damit mehr Mitarbeiter nicht mehr Stress, sondern mehr Freiheit bedeuten.

A bookstore can be a wonderful, welcoming place of both commerce and curiosity. That's the goal for Woody, an American recently transferred to England to run a branch of Texts. He wants a clean, orderly store and lots of sales to show his bosses when they arrive from the States for a pre-Christmas inspection. Not easy given the shop's location in a foggy strip mall. And things keep going wrong. No matter how often the shelves are put in order before the doors are locked at night, when the staff returns in the morning, books are lying all over the floor, many damp and damaged beyond repair. The store's computers keep acting up-errors appear in brochures and ads and orders disappear completely. And even when the machines are turned off, they seem to glow with a spectral gray light. The hit-and-run death of an employee in the store's parking lot marks a turning point. One employee accuses another of making sexual advances and they come to blows. Between one sentence and the next, one loses his ability to read. The security monitors display half-seen things crawling between the stacks that vanish before anyone can find them. Desperate, Woody musters his staff for an overnight inventory. When the last customers reluctantly depart, leaving almost-visible trails of slime shining behind them, the doors are locked, sealing Woody and the others inside for a final orgy of shelving. The damp, grey, silent things that have been lurking in the basement and hiding in the fog may move slowly, but they are inexorable. This bookstore is no haven. It is the doorway to a hell unlike any other. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

I was a dead woman. I'd finally had a glimpse of true love, admiration, and the kind of devotion only your soulmate, your other half, could provide...until it was physically ripped away. Taken. My stalker had me, and there was little hope I'd be found. I knew Chase would use all his money and resources to search the ends of the Earth for me, but I knew the monster I was dealing with. Years of looking into the eyes of pure evil gave me the unique experience to know that my situation was dire. If Chase didn't find me soon, I'd be gone forever. *** In the third and final novel in the erotic suspense, Trinity Trilogy, SOUL connects with the reader by providing the story through the eyes of Gillian, Chase, and the man that wants to own her soul but can't for she's already given it to another. Everyone is on the hunt to save Gillian from the arms of a killer. This book can be considered dark, erotic, and thrilling. As in Body (Trinity Trilogy Book 1) the issue of domestic violence plays heavily in the storyline, and Gillian experiences many disturbing flashbacks of the past alongside tragedy the stalker brings to the present. There is also a lot of love, devotion, and friendship. As with all my books, the characters will ultimately have their happily ever after. Warning: This book is designed for audiences 18+ due to language, graphic sexual content, and themes that some may find disturbing. SOUL is book 3 of a three-part trilogy. Body (Trinity Trilogy - Book 1) and Mind (Trinity Trilogy - Book 2) must be read prior to reading SOUL.

The Daily Stoic
Author: Ryan Holiday, Stephen Hanselman
From the team that brought you The Obstacle Is the Way and Ego Is the Enemy, a beautiful daily devotional of Stoic meditations—an instant Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestseller. Why have history's greatest minds—from George Washington to Frederick the Great to Ralph Waldo Emerson, along with today's top performers from Super Bowl-winning football coaches to CEOs and celebrities—embraced the wisdom of the ancient Stoics? Because they realize that the most valuable wisdom is timeless and that philosophy is for living a better life, not a classroom exercise. The Daily Stoic offers 366 days of Stoic insights and exercises, featuring all-new translations from the Emperor Marcus Aurelius, the playwright Seneca, or slave-turned-philosopher Epictetus, as well as lesser-known luminaries like Zeno, Cleanthes, and Musonius Rufus. Every day of the year you'll find one of their pithy, powerful quotations, as well as historical anecdotes, provocative commentary, and a helpful glossary of Greek terms. By following these teachings over the course of a year (and, indeed, for years to come) you'll find the serenity, self-knowledge, and resilience you need to live well. From the Hardcover edition.
Author: Manuel Vázquez Montalbán
Barcelona, the exuberant capital of Catalonia and host of the 1992 Olympics, is here explored and exposed by its greatest contemporary author. Manuel Vazquez Montalban's anecdotal history takes us on an imaginary tour of the city, from its most secret corners to its most famous monuments. An erudite and impassioned guide, Montalban finds a controversy in every building, a story in every street, illuminating the city's rich history and turbulent politics, its art, gastronomy and football. There are many Barcelonas, and Montalban knows them all: the lavish art-nouveau houses in Vallvidrera where he himself lives; the labyrinthine squalor of the Barri Xino, setting for Genet's Thief's Journal; the Barri Gotic where the independent Catalan Kingdom between the eleventh and fifteenth centuries created a nationalist consciousness which has endured for half a millennium; the oneiric Parc Guell, designed by the city's most celebrated architect, Antoni Gaudi. But this definitive survey is one unlikely to be endorsed by the Oficina de Turismo. For Montalban is fiercely critical of the values of the new 'Olympic' Barcelona: the misery of the inner-city slums where one person dies every second day from a heroin overdose; the speculation which has compounded overcrowding in a metropolis with the highest population density in Europe; the ravaging of working-class suburbs to make way for an aseptic international centre. Once Europe's most utopian city, Barcelona, he argues, 'has become a market, and everything is up for sale'. For visitors, Barcelonas will prove a stimulating, indispensable companion. And for everyone interested in art and architecture, politics and sport, it will provide an enthralling introduction to the great European city.
