Forget everything you thought you knew about how to motivate people - at work, at school, at home. It's wrong. As Daniel H. Pink explains in his new and paradigm-shattering book DRIVE: THE SURPRISING TRUTH ABOUT WHAT MOTIVATES US, the secret to high performance and satisfaction in today's world is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and our world. Drawing on four decades of scientific research on human motivation, Pink exposes the mismatch between what science knows and what business does - and how that affects every aspect of our lives. He demonstrates that while the old-fashioned carrot-and-stick approach worked successfully in the 20th century, it's precisely the wrong way to motivate people for today's challenges. In DRIVE, he reveals the three elements of true motivation: AUTONOMY - the desire to direct our own lives; MASTERY - the urge to get better and better at something that matters; PURPOSE - the yearning to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves. Along the way, he takes us to companies that are enlisting new approaches to motivation and introduces us to the scientists and entrepreneurs who are pointing a bold way forward. DRIVE is bursting with big ideas - the rare book that will change how you think and transform how you live.

Inhaltsangabe zu "Start with Why"

Why do you do what you do?

Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and moer profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their success over and over?

People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why. It was their natural ability to start with why that enabled them to inspire those around them and to achieve remarkable things.

In studying the leaders who've had the greatest influence in the world, Simon Sinek discovered that they all think, act, and communicate in the exact same way -- and it's the complete opposite of what everyone else does. Sinek calls this powerful idea The Golden Circle, and it provides a framework upon which organizations can be built, movements can be lead, and people can be inspired. And it all starts with WHY.

Any organization can explain what it does; some can explain how they do it; but very few can clearly articulate why. WHY is not money or profit-- those are always results. WHY does your organization exist? WHY does it do the things it does? WHY do customers really buy from one company or another? WHY are people loyal to some leaders, but not others?

Starting with WHY works in big business and small business, in the nonprofit world and in politics. Those who start with WHY never manipulate, they inspire. And the people who follow them don't do so because they have to; they follow because they want to.

Drawing on a wide range of real-life stories, Sinek weaves together a clear vision of what it truly takes to lead and inspire. This book is for anyone who wants to inspire others or who wants to find someone to inspire them.

Inhaltsangabe zu "Think And Grow Rich"

Napoleon Hill, America's most beloved motivational author, devoted 25 years to finding out how the wealthy became that way. After interviewing over 500 of the most affluent men and women of his time, he uncovered the secret to great wealth based on the notion that if we can learn to think like the rich, we can start to behave like them. By understanding and applying the thirteen simple steps that constitute Hill's formula, you can achieve your goals, change your life and join the ranks of the rich and successful.



In this updated edition, Dr. Arthur R. Pell provides examples of men and women who, in recent times, exemplify the principles that Hill promulgated. With the success stories of top achievers such as Bill Gates and Steven Spielberg, he proves that Hill's philosophies are as valid today as they ever were.

Steve Jobs

Inhaltsangabe zu "Steve Jobs"

From the author of the best-selling biographies of Benjamin Franklin and Albert Einstein, this is the exclusive biography of Steve Jobs.

Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years - as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues - Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

At a time when America is seeking ways to sustain its innovative edge, and when societies around the world are trying to build digital-age economies, Jobs stands as the ultimate icon of inventiveness and applied imagination. He knew that the best way to create value in the 21st century was to connect creativity with technology. He built a company where leaps of the imagination were combined with remarkable feats of engineering.

Although Jobs cooperated with this book, he asked for no control over what was written nor even the right to read it before it was published. He put nothing off-limits. He encouraged the people he knew to speak honestly. And Jobs speaks candidly, sometimes brutally so, about the people he worked with and competed against. His friends, foes, and colleagues provide an unvarnished view of the passions, perfectionism, obsessions, artistry, devilry, and compulsion for control that shaped his approach to business and the innovative products that resulted.

Driven by demons, Jobs could drive those around him to fury and despair. But his personality and products were interrelated, just as Apple's hardware and software tended to be, as if part of an integrated system. His tale is instructive and cautionary, filled with lessons about innovation, character, leadership, and values.

Rezensionen zu "Steve Jobs"

  1. Ein beeindruckender Visionär

    bewertet:
    5
    (5 von 5 *)
     - 20. Jul 2016 

    Er war der beeindruckendste Visionär des Computerzeitalters, der mit seinen Ideen eine ganze Branche aufgemischt hat. Solche Menschen führen kein normales Leben. Egal, wie man "normal" für sich selbst definieren mag. Solche Menschen haben sogar meist irgendwelche Macken, die sie zu solchen Taten inspirieren lassen.

    Die Rede ist natürlich von Steve Jobs, dessen Biografie von Walter Isaacson recherchiert und geschrieben wurde.

    Meine Rezension bezieht sich auf die korrigierte Version des Buchs, in der die meisten Fehler ausgemerzt wurden. Im Netz kursieren Gerüchte, nach denen das Buch schnell vor Weihnachten fertig werden müsste, weswegen in der Übersetzung und im Lektorat nicht zu übersehende Fehler zu finden waren. Fehler, die man teilweise noch nicht mal von Indie-Autoren gewohnt ist.

    Ich finde es sehr schade, dass bei der Veröffentlichung solche handwerklichen Fehler gemacht wurden, denn die Biografie ist wirklich gut geschrieben. Das englische Original habe ich nicht gelesen, sondern (wie gesagt) lediglich die korrigierte deutsche.

    Es ist klar, dass sehr viele Personen im Laufe der Geschichte auftreten, so dass man hin und wieder den Überblick verliert, wer wann eigentlich welchen Einfluss hatte. Dennoch kommt aber sehr gut rüber, wie Jobs seine Firma aufgebaut hat und wie er sich im Markt behauptete. Wie er sie wieder verlor und wie sich sein Leben dennoch weiter entwickelte.

    Dabei bleibt Isaacson immer wertfrei und bringt das Leben so sachlich wie irgend möglich rüber. Er lässt dabei viele Menschen zu Wort kommen, die ein unverblümtes Licht auf ihn werfen.

    Die Wertfreiheit des Autors bleibt auch bestehen, wenn er über Jobs Krebsleiden erzählt. Es bleibt in jedem Leser das Gefühl zurück, dass da etwas schief gelaufen ist. Es wirft in mir die Frage auf, ob Jobs wirklich den Krebs hätte besiegen können, wenn er sich am Anfang nicht derart für eine alternative Heilmethode entschieden hätte.

    Das Krebsleiden zeigt aber auch, wie sehr die Firma und die Marke Apple mit dieser Person verbunden war. Wie weit seine Visionen reichen, zeigt die Einführung der Apple Watch, die noch auf seinen Ideen fußt.

    Ich kann man nach dem Lesen der Biografie sehr gut vorstellen, wie man im Dunstkreis eines Steve Jobs leiden musste. Je enger man ihm stand, umso schlimmer muss es gewesen sein. Eine Eigenart, die allen Visionären zugrunde liegen scheint, die die Welt in dieser Art und Weise beeinflussen.

    Zumindest für mich offenbart die Biografie so einiges. Sie gibt einen Blick hinter die Kulissen frei, den ich so nicht erwartet hätte. Der aber offensichtlich) so von Jobs gewollt war.

    Schlussendlich bleibt auch die Erkenntnis, dass wir Normalbürger nichts verpasst haben, wenn wir nicht in der Nähe dieser schillernden Personen stehen.

 

Scrum

Inhaltsangabe zu "Scrum"

By the man who helped invent the red-hot management process known as "Scrum", Scrum unveils what is wrong with the way we currently do work, and how a simple set of principles, applied in exactly the right sequence, can accelerate productivity and quality as much as 1200 percent. Scrum (which gets its name from the formation in rugby in which the whole team locks its arms to gain control of the ball) is the reason that Amazon can launch a new feature on its website every day. It's why the Red River Army Depot in Texas was able to roll out armored Humvees 39 times faster than before. It's how the FBI finally created a massive terrorist-tracking database. The reason for the rapid embrace of Scrum across so many disciplines is simple: organizations that implement Scrum typically double productivity and quality - and sometimes the increase can be as much as 12-fold. But the promise of Scrum as a project management tool extends far beyond business. Much as Atul Gawande did in The Checklist Manifesto, Sutherland shows how this unique approach to problem solving and team optimization has nearly universal application. At bottom, Scrum is about coming together with your team, looking at what you're doing, and course correcting. It may be the key to solving some of this era's most intractable problems.
