!-- Generated by XStandard version 2.0.1.0 on 2016-09-05T12:09:03 -- Wir leben in einer Gesellschaft, in der wir immer mehr teilen: Neuigkeiten, Mitfahrgelegenheiten, Apartments. Einzig Führung scheint unteilbar. Doch diese Vorstellung ist schon lange eine Illusion: Wir teilen Führung, ohne dass wir es bemerken. Was fehlt, sind klare Spielregeln, die passende Infrastruktur und die erforderlichen Kompetenzen. Führung muss neu gedacht werden. Kein Mensch kann die Herausforderungen des wirtschaftlichen Umbruchs alleine meistern - auch kein Chef. Jeder muss führen und jeder muss folgen - und jeder muss wissen, wann was angebracht ist. Dieses Buch bietet eine Landkarte, mit der die notwendigen Veränderungen zu erkennen, zu verstehen und zu gestalten sind. Es liefert Anregungen, wie wir Führung gemeinsam meistern können. Es ermutigt, die großen technischen und gesellschaftlichen Veränderungen zu nutzen, um Unternehmen erfolgreicher und uns zufriedener zu machen. „Arnolds persönliche Erfahrungen und Experimente mit neuen Führungsmethoden erlauben einen glaubwürdigen Ausblick auf die Zukunft des Managements." - Michael Leitl, Harvard Business Manager „Hermann Arnold plädiert fürs Abschaffen der alten Hierarchien - um zeitgemäßere Führungsformen zu schaffen, bei denen verschiedene Führungsaufgaben auf alle Mitarbeiter im Team verteilt werden. Denn er findet, es ist Zeit für ein neues Selbstverständnis für Mitarbeiter wie Führungskräfte. Wer seinen Managerjob ernst nimmt, findet viele Ansätze, um zufriedenere Mitarbeiter und bessere Ergebnisse fürs Unternehmen zu erreichen." - Claudia Tödtmann, WirtschaftsWoche, relevanteste Management-Bloggerin Deutschlands „In seiner Firma Haufe-umantis war und ist Hermann Arnold Pionier im Experimentieren mit Führung. In seinem Buch debattiert er ganz in diesem Sinne, dass soziale Innovation unverzichtbarer Bestandteil guter Unternehmensentwicklung ist. Und ‚gute Führung' ist dabei Nadelöhr. Sein bestens begründetes Plädoyer für Unternehmensdemokratie illustriert er durch Transformationspfade hin zum Ideal. Ich bin Fan!" - Thomas Sattelberger, ehemaliger Vorstand Deutsche Telekom, ZukunftsAllianz Arbeit und Gesellschaft „Ein kluges Buch darüber, vor welchen Herausforderungen Führungskräfte heute stehen - und was gute Führung heute ausmacht." - Angelika Unger, Impulse Inhalte: Beobachtungen: Was häufig schief läuft in Unternehmen. Sichtweisen: Wie man auf die Unternehmensrealität blicken kann. Erklärungen: Wie wir die Herausforderungen begreifen können. Erkenntnisse: Was wir daraus lernen können. Anregungen: Überblick, Anleitungen, Inspirationen. Ermutigungen: Wie Sie den ersten Schritt wagen. Perspektiven: Wie es weiter geht. Arbeitshilfen: Welche Werkzeuge Sie nutzen können.

In diesem Fachbuch beleuchten renommierte Autorinnen und Autoren aus Wissenschaft und Praxis, wie sich das Thema Identität unter dem Fokus der Zugehörigkeit in neuen Organisationsformen wandelt. Aus den Blickwinkeln verschiedener Disziplinen wie Ökonomie, Soziologie, Geschichte, Philosophie und Psychologie betrachten die Experten, welchen Stellenwert Konzepte wie Identität, Loyalität, Vertrautheit und Betriebszugehörigkeit heute haben. Sie gehen der Frage nach, ob und wie sich diese Konzepte durch moderne Arbeitsformen und Organisationstypen wie Projektarbeit, Matrixorganisationen und Netzwerkstrukturen verändert haben. Einen weiteren Schwerpunkt der Beiträge stellen die kurz- und mittelfristigen Auswirkungen dieser Veränderungen auf Mitarbeiter und Führungskräfte dar. Die Stiftung der Schweizerischen Gesellschaft für Organisation und Management SGO sowie die Hochschule für Soziale Arbeit der Fachhochschule Nordwestschweiz unterstützten diesen Tagungsband.

Foreword by Laszlo Bock, the bestselling author of Work Rules! and former Senior Vice President of People Operations at Google An inspiring guide from Dolly Chugh, an award-winning social psychologist at the New York University Stern School of Business, on how to confront difficult issues including sexism, racism, inequality, and injustice so that you can make the world (and yourself) better. Many of us believe in equality, diversity, and inclusion. But how do we stand up for those values in our turbulent world? The Person You Mean to Be is the smart, "semi-bold" person’s guide to fighting for what you believe in. Dolly reveals the surprising causes of inequality, grounded in the "psychology of good people". Using her research findings in unconscious bias as well as work across psychology, sociology, economics, political science, and other disciplines, she offers practical tools to respectfully and effectively talk politics with family, to be a better colleague to people who don’t look like you, and to avoid being a well-intentioned barrier to equality. Being the person we mean to be starts with a look at ourselves. She argues that the only way to be on the right side of history is to be a good-ish— rather than good—person. Good-ish people are always growing. Second, she helps you find your "ordinary privilege"—the part of your everyday identity you take for granted, such as race for a white person, sexual orientation for a straight person, gender for a man, or education for a college graduate. This part of your identity may bring blind spots, but it is your best tool for influencing change. Third, Dolly introduces the psychological reasons that make it hard for us to see the bias in and around us. She leads you from willful ignorance to willful awareness. Finally, she guides you on how, when, and whom, to engage (and not engage) in your workplaces, homes, and communities. Her science-based approach is a method any of us can put to use in all parts of our life. Whether you are a long-time activist or new to the fight, you can start from where you are. Through the compelling stories Dolly shares and the surprising science she reports, Dolly guides each of us closer to being the person we mean to be.

An Evidence-Based Approach to Personality and Leadership A leader’s bullying and constant dismissal of his team’s concerns nearly take down an entire company—and the global financial system. The U.S. Government has to provide a $182 billion bailout. A new CEO transforms a near-bankrupt auto company and its infamously competitive culture becomes more collaborative and thrives—making it the only auto manufacturer to not take bailout funds. These stories share a truth: Each leader’s personality set the course of their company’s future. We all know that IQ, education, knowledge, and technical skills are essential for professionals, but they alone are insufficient for effective leadership. Who you are as a person—your personality and character—drives leadership performance and determines who thrives and who fails. In Personality at Work, psychologist Ron Warren lays out the key personality traits that drive high performance—and the common traits that derail it. Warren clusters closely related traits into four dimensions of behavior: • Teamwork/Social Intelligence • Deference • Dominance • Grit/Task Mastery. Each cluster is broken down into personality traits—13 in all. Personality at Work draws from research using the renowned LMAP 360 with 20,000 leaders and 250,000 360-feedback raters. An assessment used at organizations around the world, LMAP 360 is used at Harvard Business School, Yale School of Management, Underwriter Laboratories, BearingPoint, Deloitte, Teach for America, Clayton Homes, and more than 35 hospital systems throughout the United States. Personality at Work integrates research on personality and performance, teamwork, communications, judgment, and decision-making. You will learn how to ... • Recognize your own personality patterns and those of colleagues • Understand the links between personality, leadership, and organizational effectiveness • Turn insights into action, leading with Grit and EQ to drive individual and team performance

The antidote to navigating turbulent times isn’t more rules. It is timeless virtue that creates sustainable value. Thoughtful leaders are keenly aware of the enormous challenge they face to drive high performance in a world that continues to ratchet up pressure and uncertainty. Some leaders respond by getting tough and establishing strict rules. They get people in line, but they don’t inspire excellence. Wise leaders, on the other hand, help their people practice character to navigate their way through the turbulence—without lowering performance expectations. As a result, their people are more reliable under pressure. Exception to the Rule links ancient wisdom with contemporary science on high performance, teamwork, and engagement. Building an organizational culture based on classical virtues– of trust, compassion, courage, justice, wisdom, temperance and hope - is both strategically smart and a better way to live. Exception to the Rule walks you through the steps of helping everyone in your organization focus on character defined by virtue. The word virtue means excellence, which is why each one is essential to help people perform at a high level despite uncertainty and pressure. Under character--based leadership, teams work better together, creativity flourishes and engagement increases. The most powerful idea of Exception to the Rule is this: character defined by virtue is not based on birthright; it can be learned and practiced. Everyone can develop habits to become better than they were. While character cannot be legislated, character can be cultivated. As virtue proves its value, the culture you have can evolve into the culture you need.

“This book is a contemporary classic—a shrewd and spirited guide to protecting ourselves from the jerks, bullies, tyrants, and trolls who seek to demean. We desperately need this antidote to the a-holes in our midst.”—Daniel H. Pink, best-selling author of To Sell Is Human and Drive How to avoid, outwit, and disarm assholes, from the author of the classic The No Asshole Rule As entertaining as it is useful, The Asshole Survival Guide delivers a cogent and methodical game plan for anybody who feels plagued by assholes. Sutton starts with diagnosis—what kind of asshole problem, exactly, are you dealing with? From there, he provides field‐tested, evidence‐based, and often surprising strategies for dealing with assholes—avoiding them, outwitting them, disarming them, sending them packing, and developing protective psychological armor. Sutton even teaches readers how to look inward to stifle their own inner jackass. Ultimately, this survival guide is about developing an outlook and personal plan that will help you preserve the sanity in your work life, and rescue all those perfectly good days from being ruined by some jerk. “Thought-provoking and often hilarious . . . An indispensable resource.”—Gretchen Rubin, best-selling author of The Happiness Project and Better Than Before “At last . . . clear steps for rejecting, deflecting, and deflating the jerks who blight our lives . . . Useful, evidence-based, and fun to read.”—Robert Cialdini, best-selling author of Influence and Pre-Suasion

El legendario inversor John Doerr revela cómo los Objetivos y Resultados Claves (OKR) han permitido a Google lograr un crecimiento explosivo, y cómo ese método puede ayudar a cualquier organización a prosperar. En otoño de 1999, John Doerr se reunió con los fundadores de una start-up a la que acababa de confiar cerca de 12 millones de dólares, la mayor inversión de su carrera. Larry Page y Sergey Brin tenían en sus manos una tecnología extraordinaria, mucha energía emprendedora y grandes ambiciones, pero carecían de un plan de negocio. Para que Google pudiera cambiar el mundo, Page y Brin tendrían que aprender a fijar las prioridades tomando decisiones difíciles y a la vez mantener a su equipo en la buena senda. Y para ello necesitaban datos pertinentes y relevantes con los que verificar su progreso y medir lo que importaba. Doerr les reveló el método probado para alcanzar la eficacia operativa, los Objetivos y Resultados Claves (OKR), que descubrió en los años setenta como ingeniero en Intel de la mano de Andy Grove. Y el resto ya forma parte de la historia. Utilizando los OKR como base de su gestión, Google ha pasado de sus 40 empleados iniciales a más de 70.000, con una capitalización bursátil que supera los 700.000 millones de dólares. En el método OKR, los objetivos definen lo que queremos lograr; los resultados clave son cómo se alcanzarán esos objetivos prioritarios con acciones específicas y medibles dentro de un marco de tiempo establecido. Los objetivos de todos, desde un empleado cualquiera hasta el CEO, son transparentes para toda la organización. Los beneficios son profundos. Los OKR emergen el trabajo más importante de una organización. Orientan el esfuerzo y fomentan la coordinación. Vinculan los objetivos de diversos departamentos para unificar y fortalecer a toda la empresa. Y, además, permiten mejorar la satisfacción en el lugar de trabajo y aumentan el rendimiento. En Mide lo que importa, Doerr comparte su experiencia y un amplio abanico de casos -desde Bono a Bill Gates, entre otros-, que hacen patente el crecimiento explosivo que los OKR han estimulado en muchas grandes organizaciones. Este libro ayudará a una nueva generación de líderes a descubrir esa misma magia. John Doerr preside la firma de capital riesgo Kleiner Perkins, a la que se incorporó en 1980. Con sus inversiones en algunas de las empresas de mayor éxito en el mundo -entre las que se cuentan Amazon, Google, Intuit, Netscape y Twitter- ha contribuido a la creación de más de 425.000 empleos. Reseñas: «Recomiendo este libro a todas aquellas personas que deseen convertirse en mejores directivos.» Bill Gates «Mide lo que importa muestra cómo cualquier organización o equipo puede fijarse metas ambiciosas, moverse rápido y despuntar.» Sheryl Sandberg, COO de Facebook y autora de Vayamos adelante y Opción B «John Doerr se halla en el origen de la extraordinaria gestión de muchas de las empresas icónicas de Silicon Valley que han contribuido a cambiar el mundo. Mide lo que importa es una lectura obligada para cualquier persona motivada para mejorar su organización.» Al Gore, presidente de The Climate Reality Project «En este libro indispensable, el inversor más importante de nuestra era revela la clave para la innovación y el éxito empresarial.» Walter Isaacson, autor de Steve Jobs y Los innovadores
