"Lead Yourself First makes a compelling argument for the integral relationship between solitude and leadership." --The Wall Street Journal Throughout history, leaders have used solitude as a matter of course. Martin Luther King found moral courage while sitting alone at his kitchen table one night during the Montgomery bus boycott. Jane Goodall used her intuition in the jungles of central Africa while learning how to approach chimps. Solitude is a state of mind, a space where you can focus on your own thoughts without distraction, with a power to bring mind and soul together in clear-eyed conviction. But these days, handheld devices and other media leave us awash with the thoughts of others. We are losing solitude without even realizing it. To find solitude today, a leader must make a conscious effort. This book explains why the effort is worthwhile and how to make it. Through gripping historical accounts and firsthand interviews with a wide range of contemporary leaders, Raymond Kethledge (a federal court of appeals judge) and Michael Erwin (a West Pointer and three-tour combat veteran) show how solitude can enhance clarity, spur creativity, sustain emotional balance, and generate the moral courage necessary to overcome adversity and criticism. Anyone who leads anyone--including oneself--can benefit from solitude. With a foreword by Jim Collins (author of the bestseller Good to Great), Lead Yourself First is a rallying cry to reclaim solitude--and all the benefits, both practical and sublime, that come with it.

Wahre innere Stärke erwächst nicht aus Siegen, sondern aus Niederlagen: Gerade zu straucheln und hinzufallen, birgt die Chance für inneres Wachstum und weist uns den Weg zu Weisheit, Hoffnung und einem tieferen Lebenssinn. Die US-amerikanische Starpsychologin Brené Brown erforscht seit vielen Jahren die Gesetzmäßigkeiten innerer Stärke. Anschaulich und anhand vieler Beispiele beschreibt sie den Entwicklungsprozess, der uns in Krisenzeiten positiv formt: Wir lernen, mit Scham umzugehen. Uns trotz widriger Umstände als wertvoll zu empfinden. Gehen das Wagnis ein, uns in unserer Verletzlichkeit zu zeigen. Entwickeln den Mut, uns über die eigenen Grenzen hinauszuwagen und unser Leben aktiv zu gestalten – und sind schließlich stärker als je zuvor.

Am 17. Mai 2014 wandte sich Admiral William H. McRaven an die Abschlussklasse der University of Texas in Austin. Inspiriert vom Slogan der Universität "Was hier anfängt, verändert die Welt", teilte er die zehn wichtigsten Lektionen, die er während seines Navy-Seal-Trainings fürs Leben gelernt hat. Sie halfen ihm nicht nur, die Herausforderungen im Training und in seiner langen Karriere zu meistern, sondern erwiesen sich auch im Privaten als hilfreich. Er erklärte, wie jeder diese grundlegenden Lehren nutzen kann, um sich – und die Welt – zum Besseren zu verändern. Admiral McRavens ursprüngliche Rede ging viral: Das zugehörige Video wurde auf YouTube millionenfach angesehen. In dem Weltbestseller Mach dein Bett baut McRaven auf den zehn Prinzipien aus seiner Rede auf, erzählt Geschichten aus seinem Leben und berichtet von Menschen, denen er während seines Militärdienstes begegnet ist. Er schildert, wie er sich mit Entbehrungen auseinandersetzte und harte Entscheidungen mit Entschlossenheit, Mitgefühl und Mut traf. Dieses Buch bietet einfache und universelle Weisheiten, praktische Ratschläge und Worte der Ermutigung, die dazu inspirieren, auch in den dunkelsten Momenten des Lebens optimistisch zu bleiben und nach mehr zu streben.

Wie findet man das wahre Glück? Wie lässt sich Erfolg wirklich bemessen? Und wie geht man mit den Herausforderungen des Alltags wie Wut, Trauer und der Frage nach dem Sinn des Ganzen um? Was große Geister wie George Washington, Friedrich der Große, Weltklassesportler oder Top-Performer längst für sich entdeckt haben, liegt mit "Der tägliche Stoiker" erstmals gesammelt vor. New York Times-Bestsellerautor Ryan Holiday und Stephen Hanselman haben das Wissen der Stoiker in 366 zeitlose Lektionen verpackt und zeigen, dass die Philosophie des Stoizismus nicht nur zeitlos, sondern gerade für unsere hektische und unsichere Zeit ein Segen ist. Weisheit, Mut, Gerechtigkeitssinn und Selbstbeherrschung sowie Gelassenheit lassen sich erlernen und helfen uns, in der zunehmenden Komplexität unserer Welt zu bestehen. Die uralten Weisheiten der Stoiker, gesammelt und kommentiert, unterstützen bei diesen alltäglichen Herausforderungen.

Die Erinnerungen von Ex-FBI-Chef James B. Comey sind aktuell, brisant und spannend wie ein Krimi. 2017 von Präsident Trump gefeuert, schreibt Comey einen fesselnden Insider-Bericht über politische Machenschaften und das von Donald Trump korrumpierte System. Ein Sachbuch wie ein Kriminalroman der Extraklasse: James Comeys brisante Erinnerungen an die vergangenen 20 Jahre im Zentrum der Macht zeigen ihn als unbeugsamen Ermittler, der gegen die Mafia, gegen CIA-Folter und NSA-Überwachung, und zuletzt im Wahlkampf 2016 gegen Hillary Clintons Umgang mit dienstlichen Emails und Donald Trumps Russland-Verbindungen vorgegangen ist. Der Weg des parteilosen New Yorker Vorzeigejuristen gleicht einer politischen Achterbahnfahrt: stellvertretender Justizminister unter George W. Bush, zum FBI-Direktor ernannt von Barack Obama und gefeuert von Donald Trump wegen angeblicher Illoyalität. Sein Buch ist ein eindrückliches Lehrstück über den aufrechten Gang in einer verantwortungslosen Regierung.

Ein berührender Bericht von der Schwelle zwischen Leben und Tod Manchmal muss man erst sterben, um voll und ganz leben zu können. Dieses Buch führt uns auf die spannendste Reise, die man sich vorstellen kann. Anita Moorjani war an Krebs erkrankt und lag im Sterben. Doch als sie das Bewusstsein verlor, fand sie sich plötzlich in einem von Licht und Ekstase erfüllten Raum wieder. Tiefgreifende Erkenntnisse über unsere göttliche Natur, unsere Aufgabe auf der Erde und den Sinn ihrer Krankheit strömten auf sie ein. Obwohl sie gerne in diesem jenseitigen Raum geblieben wäre, entschloss sie sich, zurückzukehren, denn sie erkannte: »Der Himmel ist kein Ort, sondern ein Zustand.« Anita Moorjani kehrte ins Leben zurück, und in der Folge heilte ihr Krebs zur Überraschung aller Mediziner vollständig ab. Diese Erfahrung hat ihr Leben verändert. Sie weiß jetzt: Es gibt keinen Grund für Traurigkeit und Angst. Wir sind nicht nur mit allen anderen Lebewesen und mit Gott verbunden – in einer tieferen Schicht sind wir Gott. Ein zutiefst bewegender Erfahrungsbericht und zugleich ein Ratgeber, der unser aller Anschauung über das Leben und den Tod verändern kann.
