Handorakel to sophistication (Balthasar Gracian)

The Spanish Jesuit and Lebensphilosoph Balthasar Gracian has, in this collection of over 300 aphorisms from the 17. Century, his observations about the behavior - ways of the people...

...collected. Arthur Schoppenhauer has the book in 1831, from the Spanish translated into German. the
the
The Translation Schoppenhauers is succeeded so well, that you are still considered to be the most authentic and accurate approach to the texts by Balthasar Gracian.
the
the
In this book, it Gracian made, from which Observed the Principle to get to the point: How do people, when your Reputation is at stake? On if or what can you rely on? How are people dealing with? 
the
In reading the booklet, you will recognize that the fundamentals of human nature has hardly changed. So to work because his – after all, over 350 years old – Considerations still highly relevant.
the
The book is less than a one-time reading, but rather to serve as a companion in crucial situations. Also for the Manager, who again and again have to worry about "how people actually work," a valuable source of Inspiration!

Karaoke capitalism (J. Ridderstrale and K. A. Nordström)

The title of "Karaoke capitalism" as the subtitle of the book "Fitness and sex appeal for the Business of tomorrow" sounds lurid and a little to the Management of tabloid journalism. Who to (like I was at the beginning of) the book not only your Hand, but it makes a big mistake, Because even for me and my Business Coaching work  is the book of today is a source of Inspiration! But in sequence.
the
The two Management thought leaders and professors Jonas Ridderstrale and Kjell A. Nordström from the Business School of Economics in Stockholm to succeed in this pleasant-to-read book is an amazing...

... social processes. your analysis is not in depth, but rather in the width: Ridderstrale and Nordström summarize thematically seemingly incoherent socio-economic Einzelfragmente to a concise final scene. the

Five key messages are listed here:
the
1. A company has either success, if there are specific problems to solve or if it is the merciless price war to a "Mainstream product" wins. the
the
2. individuals have success if you either have excellent skills, or if you have the necessary financial capital, on the playing fields of Power and Innovation to contribute.
the
3. The battle for skilled, educated and highly mobile talent, which it logically needs to be highly specific problems to solve, and the demand for social needs, will be exacerbated.
the
4. With this "war for talent" increases, as a result, the gap between the Winnern, almost everything is allowed, because you are in the Darwinian sense,  "fit and/or sexy" and the people who neither have money nor economically useful skills to possess, more and more.
the
5.  farewell to the Mainstream: Benchmarking (=“Karaoke“), both as "individual strategy", as well as corporate strategy - leads to Failure. Because a copy is neither as good nor as popular as the Original.
the
Recommended!
the
The read book is rich in amazing quotes, which sympathischerweise always as hypotheses – declared "survival for the fittest theories" aptly support. An inspiring social schaftsanalyse - not only for executives and High Potentials - but rather for all the people worried about themselves and the future of our society.
the
The only weakness of the book is and will remain to be somehow "hollow" sounding title. The me - despite repeated recommendation from various sides - long discouraged the book to take it on. the
the
Meanwhile, I have it but have already read twice...!

Leadership The One Minute Manager expects (Ken Blanchard)

With the book "leadership - The One Minute Manger is calculated from the" I would like a best-seller imagine, the world's...

18 million copies sold. In this book, is the basic tenet that represent leadership in the Situation and the abilities of the staff to Orient. Basically, the four leadership styles are presented, as to Instruct, Train, Sekundieren and Delegate, will be described. Depending on the level of development of the employee in the relevant field should be different styles will be passed through.
the
Ken Blanchard defines leadership as the "ability to influence, by their powers, and ways of Acting on the greater Whole release". Who assumes management responsibility, must have higher goals, sacrifices and self-sacrifice, and himself not as a king but rather as a servant for the company to understand. A Pilot who is not the economic but also a social and environmental responsibility includes.
the
A very readable book, which, despite major visions in the practice transferable.
the
Verdict: Very worth reading!

Money - Power - freedom (50 Cent and Robert Greene)

A Rapper as a Business book author?
the
Sounds funny but not uninteresting. With a certain amount of curiosity and skepticism, I have the 300 page book to read. The Plot is not new: He says the typical American "from-rags-to-riches" story. The Hauptakteuer is Curtis Jackson aka 50 Cent. His impressive life story from...

... "Gangsta" to the highly successful, clever, and strategic thinking 100 times Dollarmillionär with a lot of philosophical reflection peppered. By Sun Tsu on Malcom X to Nietzsche. It shows the (probably) large influence on the content and structure of the book by Co-author Robert Green, which even a well-known Management bestseller author. the
the
The Whole thing reads partly like a "Best of" of the "unconventional" Management-Top-Seller in the last few years, is never boring, but it results in a cohesive overall picture.
the
The Central statements of the book are as easy as pie: live your life. Be yourself, bulky and open-minded. Overcome the fear of markets, people and the death and do what you heart is. Then you're free and in this freedom, so independent, that you - with the necessary passion and the necessary will - reach what you really want. the
the
Sounds simple. But not too simple. To me, the book has definitely a lot of pleasure!

Brian,Let me correct you, because you seem like twisting the truth, I think what you are talking about, when Muhammed had agreement with the Jews and they breach the agreement, so he throw them out and took what they have.It seems to me that you are the kind who likes to twist the truth. God do8en&#s217;t tell you to do something, God knows what decision you are going to take in certain situation because he know what you are thinkin about.Again we are not an animals, there no animals with a brain like ours, if you are an animal that’s your buisness, but I’m not an animal.

What is Management? (Peter F. Drucker)

The world-famous Management Guru, Peter F. Drucker is and remains second to none. Again and again he makes the right important questions and is never flat and lurid,

but always preserved the view of the Whole. The special value of this book is that the core of the statements of a printer in a factory is compressed. This is for managers and business students, which are lack of time, not in the printer's extensive body of work can learn a great help. In particular, the book is also a great enrichment for consultant and Trainer in the Management Coaching operate. the
the
Compressed it can hardly be, you can many other books to save!
