[BEST PRACTICE] Successful management

Review by Raimund

"Best practice: Manage successfully" offers exciting insights into a huge range of well-known personalities. From Reinhold Messner to Elon Musk, this book tells you what makes successful people and managers tick. And the whole thing short, crisp and pleasantly varied. A clear recommendation not only for readers from the management sector.

Review by KiCQ

With Manage (n) this one has eBook to do something only to the extent that well-known companies are highlighted that we all know from the media and in our daily dealings with their products or services. Extraordinary success stories are told. Above all, however, people are shown who have managed to infect other people with an idea, a vision. Personalities who are in the spotlight and seem infallible ... but ultimately they are just people who - despite all the success that we perceive externally - also make mistakes. These very personal perspectives make this book not only technically worth reading, but also a lively reading pleasure far beyond the topic of "Successful Management".

[BEST PRACTICE] Leadership fit for the future

Review by Dennis Schenkel

The image of good managers has changed a lot in recent years and will continue to change massively in the years to come. Numerous framework conditions are being changed by digitization and at the same time new generations are pouring into the labor market who share an increasingly anti-authoritarian attitude and represent a completely new definition of "work". All of these factors mean that the concept of leadership and the tasks of managers are changing significantly. Today it is a matter of course for a manager to set a good example instead of giving instructions from a safe distance. The manager becomes a role model and has to fulfill a multitude of different roles. This change demands a lot from managers. It is important to constantly develop and to be able to react sensitively to developments inside and outside the company. Empathy and self-sacrifice for one's own subordinates become indispensable qualities. This book offers a wonderful insight into the new world of leadership. With the help of numerous examples, it illustrates what it takes for a successful manager who is valued by both management and subordinates. From my point of view, this book is absolutely recommended for prospective and long-established managers.

Review by Career insights

Who asks, leads .. that is a general belief. And the journalist Simone Janson knows how to interview experts and find answers to pressing questions. Recommendation!

15 rules for better negotiating & selling

Review by Risks

What I was looking for. The book is easy to read and easy to understand. I'll try out the tips and suggestions.

Review by RockTom053

Nice summary
Short, crisp, with a lot of important and correct information! Above all, I find it valuable that not only one author has a say (which can sometimes be difficult if I am not so consistent with his opinion), but that a large number of sales professionals give their tips on selected and very different topics There is just not ONE guide to sales, many perspectives from different cracks in their field are particularly helpful.

Review by Matze

Nice book good ideas. We recommend!

Review by Justin Neufeld

Good information in a nutshell!
I have to say I already knew a lot of the tips from the book, but there was also a lot of new and useful information. If you want to increase your chances in sales, it is guaranteed to be the right one.

Review by CB

Review by Sarah

Worth reading
Super interesting! I would definitely consider it worth reading.

Review by Sarah W.

Valuable knowledge well prepared
What I particularly liked about the book was that the information was formulated quite simply, and also very clear and understandable, so that I didn't have to read each sentence three times to understand it. In the new company I work for, I deal a lot with marketing strategies and the tools I can use for them, as well as content marketing. The book gave me a lot of useful tips at hand and helped me to approach my tasks with more insight and knowledge. Much of the information was also new to me, but in contrast to many other works of this type, I did not feel overfed with information, but can now successfully implement what I have learned. Really recommend looking at this book!

Review by Aleshanee

Interesting marketing strategies & tools
This e-book is rich in helpful information and everyday knowledge that is also applicable. The spectrum of topics ranges from diverse marketing strategies & tools, content marketing to social media communication and all of this is backed up with useful tips. Everything is change. All are just events. And the optimal reaction to it, too: So go ahead, follow trends and use change and progress so that you can jump to the next wave.

Review by Emre aydin

Interesting book

Helps a lot
I liked the book very much and reads very well. Written well and understandably with valuable tips. I will now try to implement some in the near future. Thank you!

Lead the boss from below

Review by armine

Good tips for young professionals
An interesting book with good tips that will help you move forward in the professional world. However, you have to take some time and gradually deal with the individual chapters and reflect for yourself.

Review by yassine

Great book for a new perspective
The book gave me a new perspective. I've learned that I first have to be aware of what I want. A nice, brief introduction to the topic, it was researched very well and the 5 golden rules were set up by the author and put on paper. It is exactly what I was always looking for: written easily and clearly without any complicated trappings.

Review by GtheB

Good introductory book for better cooperation with the boss
The book is a good introduction to the subject of boss-employee relationships and helps you to empathize with both roles. In addition, some help is given on the subject of salary negotiations. The chapters are easy to understand.

First time boss! From employee to manager

Review by Amazon customer

That's when you finally got him - the coveted job of the supervisor and then everything is different than hoped. The former colleagues avoid one, with the new role and the new tasks you are completely overwhelmed. You would like to undo everything. But that is no longer possible - at least without loss of face. So just keep doing this. For many, after the first joy, "Juhuu, finally boss" comes the disillusionment. This is exactly where this book comes in and shows what you can do to grow into the new leadership role, piece by piece, after the initial euphoria. Since I am currently in this phase myself, the book came just in time and I actually read it in one. However, the different perspectives are also suitable for targeted reading on individual topics or problem areas. So for those who are on the way from the employee to the manager, in daily practice very exciting and helpful!

Review by Sweetlittle

It is OK. The book consists of a collection of small articles by different authors. Unfortunately, the articles are far too short to help a new manager; they seem more like an advertisement for the actual book by the respective author. Even if there are some instructions for action, these seem to be out of context. It didn't help me; it was rather disappointing.

Be lazy anyway get & stay rich

Review by Amazon customer

The end of the Protestant work ethic
Work, be diligent, create, then you will also be rewarded - this is the kit that holds our society together. But it is actually not that easy today and that's why I found the title of this book to be extremely successful - and the content even more: It shows above all that hectic productivity often does not lead to the goal at all and one even lazily achieves better performance can, even if for many people this may be an affront to their own way of thinking. Therefore, this book is definitely worth reading as food for thought.

Review by Fridrich

Good book
The book is easy to read and there are many tips that have to be implemented. Absolutely to suggest!

Read the book!
I'm already lazy anyway rich and haven't read it because it was free.

Review by neddi

Texts put together carelessly and haphazardly! It is very difficult to amass wealth these days. You get next to no credit interest, stocks are speculative investments and this book is definitely no help on the path to becoming a millionaire.

Review by Samy2020

Very decent overview of the subject
Got me that EBook read through and have to say that this is a great overview of the individual topics for beginners. Is explained very well what options there are and what you can do. But those who are already familiar with the topics will find a lot of familiar things.

Review by KiCQ

It all depends on the right mindset
Anyone who only thinks of investments, stocks and investments when it comes to "getting rich" is making a serious mistake - because getting rich starts in the head and it all depends on the right mindset. If you want to make money, you first have to be aware of your own worth and sell yourself accordingly. Of course, it also includes the right and useful service. So investing your money properly is just the icing on the cake, the real work has to do with a lot more with everyone. If you have internalized this, "getting rich" may not be a piece of cake for you, but the money will find its way to you much better.

Review by Fabian

Unfortunately does not work
Mediocre book. As always, there is no gain without diligence. I knew beforehand that you cannot get rich by being lazy.

Review by Kevin

Pretty useful
I found the book quite interesting and useful. If you are interested in such topics then this book is very helpful.

Review by Abel ElMa

it's OK
you can read but not learn much from it

Review by Annika

Quite okay, but nothing new
The book contains many career and life tips, most of which should have been known by now. If you are a beginner who is not at all familiar with the topic, the book may certainly be of use to at least get a rough orientation, but you really shouldn't expect any new knowledge here. Anyone who has already dealt a little with the topic of finance will have read almost all of these tips on the Internet.

Finances under control

Review by Alexander Jung

Nice summary of financial tips
The book is a nice summary for all those new to the subject of money and finance. Each chapter is written by renowned experts, and is easy to understand without much knowledge of Bwl or math, so that everyone can learn something regardless of their level of education.

Review by About A.

You have to read this book
This is a very informative book if you are interested in trading stocks and want to make money from it. I also find the financial planning & retirement planning parts very useful.

Good for various financial topics
Many different approaches to each topic. Every beginner is well advised to read this and to reinforce the basic knowledge.

Summary of the opinions of various self-appointed financial gurus
I liked the various options shown where you can invest your money, but unfortunately I didn't find anything new in this book.

Review by Ra He

for beginners
A book for beginners who are interested in financial investments.

Review by EL

Lots of information on finance
I have finished the 107 page book now. Very good tips are given here on the subject of finance. I wrote down certain pages that are important to the topic. But everyone should read the book well for themselves.

Review by Daniela Gessler

Super informative book. You learn new things quickly and condensed, and you are in good hands with explanations and suggestions. Really great for people who want to deal with finances.

Women! That's how success works

Review by Bettina Viola Barth

Even today it is still difficult to gain a foothold as a woman and, in particular, to take up management positions in companies. Possible pregnancies are just one of many well-tried clichés that supposedly prevent women. Simone Jason has been blogging successfully on the subject of women at work for a long time and with her portal "Best of HR"Facts and a pool of information that can be proud of. Since the beginning of the year, the book" Women! This is how success works, tips for career and business from two heads of state to a manager with six children: checklists examples templates “create a really good basis for future professional success. The book impressed me so much with its complexity and structure that, to be honest, I missed the words after the first time and I had to read it a second time. Normally a book will follow a straight line, but here we go deep into the problems of women in the workplace in the 21st century. Simone Janson skilfully manages to depict not just one perspective on the basis of multi-layered examples. The quality of this book is not only made up of examples, but also specific and concise tips that can be implemented directly. In my opinion, this book is an absolute must for every woman and also for every man who wants to get started professionally, because the book contains numerous checklists and questions that you should ask yourself in order to be able to work self-reflective and efficient. At the right time, I read this book several times when I was doing an internship in a young company, managed by a woman, and commuting to Hamburg for two hours. It really helped me to get in the mood for the workday in the morning and to ask myself important questions that might not have come up on their own.

Successful together in the network

Review by MeinEinkauf GmbH

Useful book
Very interesting and understandable written. If you are interested in it and need motivation and opportunities, you should read this book.

Review by Marcus82

Good collection of interesting articles for working in networked teams
I bought the book because I found the title quite exciting. It is not a classic book that you read or have to read through from cover to cover. Rather, it is a collection of various contributions in the field of virtual teams, swarm intelligence, leadership in the network, etc. The contributions are in a nutshell, with useful tips for thinking about and trying out the respective topic. Personally, I found the articles on efficient virtual leadership and workplaces for spatially separated teams to be particularly interesting in relation to my own current situation.

Review by MR

Successful together in the network
With her book, Simone Jansen creates a good overview of the topics of team spirit, leadership and organization. In the current situation, therefore, an interesting work to browse and, if necessary, to generate new perspectives.

Review by Marci D.

Great content for a free book
Nice book. A lot of knowledge and that for free. Can only tell everyone to sniff the book.

Successful together in a team

Review by Andrei Freeze

A good book for beginners
The e-book covers many different topics from the perspectives of different authors. In most cases, these are not dealt with very in-depth and provide a rough insight. As a reader, this gives you the opportunity to get to know interesting areas of the concept of a team in order to find out which one would like to deepen. This book is very helpful for someone who wants to orientate himself fundamentally in relation to the concept of team. For everyone who is looking for something specific and a corresponding depth, however, it is nothing.

Review by Max

Written nicely
In my opinion, the book is well written. Purpose is not only the work but in all areas in which the team works. I was able to take a lot with me through the book, and when you read it, you remember some scenarios.

Review by ferry

Great read
I bought the reading because I liked the last reading "Strategy Makes Success" so much. Fortunately, the read is just as worth reading. You cannot avoid teamwork these days. I myself work in a team and sometimes you get into interpersonal conflicts and reading it is a great help to me. It offers tips on how to function successfully in a team. Very informative!

Body language for executives

Review by Amazon customer

Absolute recommendation
This book made me very sensitive to my own impact as a manager and made it clear to me what I should still work on in terms of expression and impact. Absolute recommendation

Review by Raspa

A very successful book ...
... which shows that executives often fail because of seemingly succinct things, such as the right gesture, and that it is incredibly valuable to receive suggestions to train one's own behavior. I found the chapter about Obama and Putin and the different effects of the heads of state particularly interesting, so that I read the book through in one go.

Review by KiCQ

Broad overview
Body language is an extremely important topic today, especially as a leader. And she is so much more than a few pompous gestures. So I'm so excited about the broad overview in this book: it's about good manners as well as the fairly current problem of body language in digital media. But also philosophical topics like authentic leadership or the principle of resonance are discussed. Of course you can not expect excessive depth with such a bandwidth, but can download many more information on the website of the publisher free of charge.

Review by Anja

Wow, what insights ... in my opinion, this book is a joke. Unfortunately, nothing more than general statements can be found here. If I could I would give 0 points.

Overcoming crises - when life suddenly changes

Review by Daniela Gessler

I learned a lot and was able to see things from different perspectives. The book is really awesome. Reads quickly and is not boring. I can only recommend.

Like a Boss - This is how you become important

Review by RockTom053

Good concept: many perspectives
The author remains true to her line (from other books) and not only brings the one point of view on the topic, but also collects the opinions of different professionals in her field. This results in a very diverse, but well-rounded picture of the opinion of different experts with different focuses, in short: particularly valuable due to diversity and good content. And if I can't do that much with the opinion of an author, I turn to the next chapter, so: something for everyone.

Review by Ute Heine and Hans-Jürgen Scheuerpflug

Very helpful
I haven't fully read the book yet, just marked and read the most important pages for myself. Very helpful. Good tips and descriptions that I would otherwise never have come across. Fully the psychological way. I hope that I can memorize one thing or the other and get more appreciation as a result.

Review by N. Kerkhoff

Very extensive content
The book has a very extensive content and is easy to understand. Absolutely helpful in many situations. Great price performance ratio.

Review by Ruth K.

Great food for thought
A great and very interesting book with new ideas and strategies on different topics. Such as, for example, career with child, accelerate promotion. Using examples and possible strategies, it is illustrated which possibilities everyone has for themselves in order to advance better and faster in their job At the end of the book there is also an overview of the background of the individual authors of the respective chapters. This book is perfect as a source of inspiration and for initial ideas.

Review by Mr. Beaverhausen

Very good!
Very interesting and well-written book. There are many impressions and tips that can be easily implemented in everyday life. I can recommend anyone who wants to get further training in this area!

Review by Manuela F.

Interesting book
The book is interesting and informative. It deals with many topics and gives examples of implementation. It's easy to understand and easy to read.

Review by AS

I bought the book out of curiosity and I have to say that it is written easy to understand. The content offers a lot of information and tips which, at least in theory, seem to be easy to implement. What it looks like in practice will show ... With every purchase of the book, climate protection is also supported, - trees are planted from the proceeds, which I personally think is really great!

Conduct employee discussions and job interviews

Review by Kathrin Kapellner

I find it exciting to read very different aspects and sometimes even controversial opinions on a topic. The book by Simone Jansen offers such a variety. After reading her career and HR blog I've been following for a long time, I think eBooks a valuable summary of individual areas, as for example with the focus on employee appraisals. From applicant interviews to difficult leadership situations, there is comprehensive information, checklists, best practice and even work materials in the form of eCourseCourses. Diversity in every respect. Recommended!

Review by Shiva666

Very well structured time management and staff management !!
The structure of the book is easy to understand and can be used for any type of business! Lots of tips even if you are already dealing with the topic!

Review by Ina Doering

A wide range of information on employee motivation!
The book informs both bosses and employees about the basics of leadership, team building and ideal relationship management in the company. It shows bosses their core competencies and impressively describes that it should not be about leading people, but about running a company. In principle, people can lead themselves alone. Of all the tips, I like this key statement best.

Saying no without feeling guilty but still negotiating successfully

Review by Amazon customer

I'm excited!
Not being able to say “No” has been a problem for me for years, so I bought the book. While reading, I was amazed to see how much the title actually hits the nail on the head. I realized why it is often so difficult for me to stand by my opinion and where I have to start in order to change that. I am really excited!

Review by Sylvia Flick

I just had an important negotiation so I read the book through in one go to prepare. It helped, the negotiation went well for me. Great thank you!

Get out of the hamster wheel

Review by Fanny_E

Get out of the hamster wheel
Especially in the Corona time, it is particularly difficult for me to escape this hamster wheel with home office, home schooling of the children, care, household, but also worries about family and friends ... You work and hope that everything will work out somehow. This great book gives you beautifully written tools and methods to do better. I've found myself in many places and I'm trying to implement the points, and by the way, this Kindle version protects the environment and supports afforestation projects. 5 stars from me!

Review by sandra

Meaningful and very helpful
This book was worth every penny. During the crisis between home work and schooling, caught in the constant stress, this title was really helpful and meaningful. And then as a Kindle edition - perfect. Thumbs up.

Review by Clarence

In a nutshell
Action strategy summarized without much prose on the most important subject areas in order to question and possibly adapt your own tactics. Large, legible font and clear structure and compressed so that the information stays in your head so that it can be called up quickly if you fear to land in the hamster wheel again ...

Review by QueenCaro

You are not alone with the hamster wheel feeling
I don't usually read books like this at all. But this 2020 creates me. Always the function mode. Everyone is constantly aggressive (me too) and so thin-skinned. This book lets you a) understand that almost everyone feels the same way b) problem recognized - problem eliminated (or at least alleviated). It was relaxing for me to read and understand that WE have absolutely control over how we unnecessarily drag ourselves down with this "running" after everything. I can only recommend it warmly.

Review by Stephanie

Great guide!
A very good book! With a lot of good tips! Exciting content!

Speech loud

Review by Sylvia Flick

I'm excited!
Since I'm an introvert, public appearances are always very stressful for me, and I'm downright scared of them. That's why I bought this book and I'm thrilled: Not only does it show various rhetorical tricks, the book also specifically addresses the problems of introverts. Very nicely done.

Review by Ehrenfried Conta Gromberg

Should Introverts Be Loud?
Can Introverts Be Loud? Are they even supposed to? These are important questions in a world where the loud macho guys seem to be getting stronger. The title of the book "Rede Laut" already gives an answer: It makes sense for introverts to present themselves consciously. But that's only one aspect. At the same time, the articles work out what introversion is and what special qualities go along with it. "Introversion is more than the absence of extroversion", I can only fully agree with this sentence by Sophia Dembling in this book. Worth reading.

hot! Saying no is a supreme discipline and is so damn good. Dare!
There is hardly anything more interesting than the infinities of the human psyche. I always find it so funny that there are tactics and patterns for so many things. Basically everything is always very simple. Everything is based on universal rules and you are actually pretty stupid if you don't make use of these rules and principles yourself. Even if it's just for self-defense. The book is not particularly thick and far from being a scientific non-fiction book, but I think it gives a good overview of certain topics in normal language. One cannot know enough about these subjects. I read every day and from many different fields. What always helps me the most in life and makes everyday life easier for me are books on psychological topics. Knowledge is power, has always been and always will be. The only problem I see is that we are so bombarded with knowledge that we long to consume "dull" things that "relax" our senses. So I prefer to look for Netflix and watch one stupid series after another ... It doesn't matter.

Review by Birte Pe

clever inspirations for more pleasant work
Absolutely meaningful information that wisely guides you to understand your professional life, how you deal with colleagues, superiors, tasks, well-established working and thinking structures, efficiency, etc. to question and possibly to re-structure, to restructure, to work differently, more efficiently and more appropriately to oneself, to introduce new rules of the game, to deal with colleagues and superiors differently, etc .. Many things in everyday working life are so familiar that I don't even think about them But thanks to the book, I see that I can change a lot and create more equitable and pleasant things. Feel very inspired!

Review by drhellinyourface

Great book!
I've read a few books on the subject and think it's worth the money. There are some great tips and approaches in it that I really like. No big talk about the bush. I like it.

Review by seunglee

Really motivates
I was in a psychological low because of the Corona crisis. In the e-book "Say Yes! Motivation Positive Thinking & Psychology" I was able to take away a lot of positive impulses. I have learned for myself to think more positively and can thus go through life happier.

Review by Mandy

Great to read
Great book, it's just a shame that you can only read it online and cannot order it as a normal book.

Review by Sarina Sagittarius

Serenity and positive attitude
I think it's a great book for in between. It is very easy to read with short sections! A friend recommended this book to me because I tend to get too upset about little things at times. This book gives a lot of food for thought, how one can approach things more calmly with small "changes" in the mindset. Highly recommended for people who need a little motivation boost.

Review by Bianca

Very interesting. A positive approach has become more difficult or difficult for many people. Other perspectives and the necessary motivation are missing far too much, nice to know that something is being stimulated here.

Selling yourself really well instead of just applying - Secret tricks for the job search

Review by uschion tour

Easy to understand tips
Finally an application guide that is easy to understand with good tips and gets to the point. Definitely will implement some of the advice. Clear buy recommendations

Review by Diana Bridde

Great application guide!
I am currently looking for ways to develop my career, because I came to this application guide just right. I follow the work of the blog and publishing Best of HR - for years and am enthusiastic about the concept, exciting articles as eBook to summarize and thus prepare for the reader practically. I also think it's great that the purchase of the book supports climate protection projects. Hence 5 stars for this book.

Review by armine

First aid for job seekers
Anyone looking for a job must adhere to certain rules for a successful application. With this guide you get helpful tips and suggestions that you can use as a guide.

Review by Dietmar Fitsch

Very inspiring
It is an e-book which I read with great interest. I could while reading. Questioning myself. The book shows how important it is to really only apply for a position that you really want. This also means that you really deal with the company and will have examples to get involved. It is of no use to apply for a position that you actually do not want. This application is doomed to fail from the start. I recommend this book to everyone. At the end of this book you will find a link that enables you to take part in e-learning for free.

Review by AW

Remains very on the surface
The book is more of a series of blogs, certainly not wrong, but those who have already written applications will find little specific inspiration here.

Small Talk - Learn how to network better quickly and effectively through communication

Review by Sylvia F

Small talk - an underrated sales tool
An exciting overview on the subject of small talk that drew my attention to a special aspect: As the author and sales trainer Oliver Schumacher shows, small talk is an important, but often underestimated sales tool that should be used much more often. Chapeau for this useful text.

Review by JOKER

Good book for people with Aspergians
I had a lot of problems trying to have a little conversation with people I knew or didn't know. I had Asperger's, which made it very difficult for me. I didn't have much interest in talking about the time, the weather, or any of the little things that go into small talk just because I didn't know how to participate. But small talk is a part of life and I had to learn how to make small talk regardless of how I felt about it. This book prepared me precisely to have small talk with people and to have a conversation after small talk became conversation. I highly recommend this book.

Review by KiCQ

Master the subtleties of communication
Small talk is not called an art that needs to be thought through for nothing. Because in order to master the subtleties of communication, it is extremely important to deal with the underlying communication theory. I particularly liked this book, because on the one hand it is entertaining to read, but on the other hand it also covers the most diverse aspects of the topic, from personal feelings of shame to rules of propriety to virtual communication. Reading value!

Review by Word

Aspects are missing
The book is ok, but it lacks many aspects that would fit the topic.

Review by Kindle customer

You don't learn how to communicate properly either, only bare theory. It is well prepared and portioned. Still, it's not fun to read. Only for people who have never thought about communication or researched. Good entry-level reading no longer.

Strategies against Bullying

Review by Red rider

According to the current study "Bullying and cyberbullying among adults and the omnipresent danger" by the Alliance against Cyberbullying, every third adult is bullied at least once in their life, 57 percent of cases of bullying take place in the workplace. Companies have various options to curb structural bullying in the workplace through open and transparent communication. The book, published by Simone Janson as editor, shows in her entertaining guide "Strategies against Bullying" how employees can successfully defend themselves with small psychological tricks and quick action. Bullying in the workplace harms the whole company Bullying is a no-go for companies. Today more than ever, creative employees are needed who openly address problems and contribute new ideas in order to be innovative. Whether the common whispering among work colleagues, the choleric superior or the one employee who keeps putting obstacles in the way of her colleague - bullying destroys the necessary positive atmosphere. This also includes outdated hierarchical structures. Anyone who has to expect to be compressed by their line manager because an appointment had to be postponed or the project does not go as planned is making themselves small. “In the days of industrial society, a climate of fear sometimes led to success, because back then the workers did not have to think, but only had to feel,” explains Anne M. Schüller, author of several business books. "However, subordinates who unwind their standard program like puppets can hardly be used by companies." Psychological tricks and effective techniques against bullying The following are other articles that sensitize the reader to bullying situations in the workplace and offer quick help. Markus Hornung highlights the 10 top killer phrases that managers should never use to supposedly support employees. Dr. Matthias Nöllke, on the other hand, presents techniques how employees can effectively defend themselves against malicious attacks. Have you ever tried the hugging technique? If a colleague strikes you as odd or challenges you with a provocative statement, just give them a hug. The effect is amazing. “You step out of the situation with confidence - and make the others look pretty bad,” explains Nöllke. The colleague then safely leaves the next saying in place. Roter Reiter conclusion The guide for bullying in the workplace consists of several entertaining articles that illuminate the topic from different angles: Cyberbullying, bullying by superiors and conflicts with colleagues are topics. However, solutions such as mediation, a positive culture of dispute or the method of transaction analysis are also presented. The guide also includes an eCourse with a worksheet to work through. Recommendable!

Teamwork teamwork team psychology team development

Review by "sebe_19862"

A lot of helpful information about teamwork and teamwork
You learn a lot about different characters and how you can potentially deal with them. The book lists good recommendations for action and communication strategies. Of course, these are only used for orientation purposes; no simple formulas can be derived for complex characters and fortunately this book does not attempt that either. Through the book I realized and became more aware of some things that I hadn't thought about before and it was already a great help for me. From now on I try to deal with some colleagues differently and to communicate more consciously. The book is a good choice for everyone who works in a team or project, or even leads personnel.

Review by Rimane

How do you best work in a team
It's definitely not easy to work in a team, no matter how simple it may seem. As soon as one is confronted with it, one recognizes the difficulty behind it. This book introduces the different types of colleagues who are the most difficult to get along with. Social skills are explained and how you can use them to communicate in a team and work effectively. I was assigned a new project at work. I have to work with colleagues I haven't had anything to do with before. I found it difficult because everyone has their own character and is just different. I ordered this book to be able to cope better with it and started reading it immediately after ordering. It helps me a lot and I hope it helps everyone who depends on it.

Review by seunglee

good textbook
the book Teamwork has helped me a lot in my work. The tips for everyday teamwork are useful and easy to implement. I learned a lot about team psychology.

Review by Martin Meier

For better collaboration
The psychology behind teamwork is very interesting and is well portrayed here. You learn how to deal with different characters and how to combine them well in order to work more efficiently. There are good tips on how to deal with difficulties and how to compromise.

Review by Chris X

The book "Teamwork, Teamarbeit" helped me a lot to get a different perspective on it. For example 5 types of difficult colleagues (Svenja Hofert) are very interesting and applicable.

Dream job wanted - career choice reorientation application

Review by Marion

The book has helped me a lot to orient myself professionally. I particularly enjoyed the contributions by Tom Diesbrock and Sir Ken Robinson. So kudos to this really recommendable book.

Review by Career counselor

The path to the dream job is often more than difficult for young people: The choice of possible career and life paths is too large, but the pressure from parents, teachers and the media to do what is supposedly the right thing is often just as immense. This book, with its opinions and support from 16 highly renowned experts, comes in handy. It shows which important points young people should definitely make and where adjustments can be made later. Also highly recommended for consultants and coaches!

Review by Herbert G.

I bought the book when I was over 40 for a professional reorientation and I am thrilled at how much tips and advice I could still find, although I have already read a lot on the subject.

Conventional tips, good book quality
Anyone who expects to find any special tricks and tips in this book will be disappointed: The advice is exclusively conventional. But there are tips that can be easily put into practice. At the moment, however, it is not so easy to network due to the Corona crisis, unless you move the matter completely to the Internet. The quality of the book and its language are good. You should really take advantage of the offer of the members area, to which you get free access when purchasing the book, in order to get the maximum benefit out of yourself.

Virtually lead

Review by Joelly

Translated review of the English edition: Very helpful!
I really enjoyed reading this and learning from it. The book has great points to learn and grow from.

Review by Purchaser

Translated review of the English edition: Boring with limited content.
There wasn't much in it for me, but there were some learning points. Also a bit dry read (possibly the translation), but not too many pages to work through. I wouldn't say you shouldn't buy it, but I would say you shouldn't rush to buy it. If it's your topic, it may get you to see what others say, but only if you are interested.

Review by Vonisha Logan

Translated review of the English edition: Must read
This book is very insightful and has lots of good advice to handle today's economy.

Get rid of the stress

Review by Bibidiemaus

This book offers suggestions, tips and help!
I ruined my health through stress. Now I am prone to every crap there is, I put on every jacket even though they all don't fit me. Until now! In this book I find very good suggestions and tips to improve my everyday life. It shows me how after stress I don't even come up. How do I deal with setbacks? The book helps me with that.

Review by Gerd

Quite well
Not bad. Very informative. You can read it.

Review by Yuri L.

A good and helpful guide.
Today's working world is characterized by stress and hectic pace, as is the case in my industry. Everything has to go faster and several tasks have to be processed at the same time. I've experienced in my own environment that stress can make you sick. In order not to get into such a situation, I bought this book. I have been reading this book for a few days now and I find it really helpful what is given to you. It is often the little things that work great miracles. So far I can recommend the book and will therefore continue reading it.

Review by Alina22

Very great book
You don't read through the chapters in a river, but jump back and forth in the topic. More than enthusiastic.

Review by askme123

Life in daily stress
This book teaches you to cope with stress in your life. There are many practical tips and methods for coping with stress.

Review by Kidney

There are solutions for everything
I started to deal intensively with life almost 4 years ago. As so often happens after very bad things, an illness was the spark for me. For many, many years I found life very difficult - I don't think I'm alone with that - but I've never really done anything about it. You are in your Depri-Flow until you can get sick from it at some point. Each expresses itself in a different way. What I have found for myself is that we have more than enough approaches for possible solutions and practices for almost every problem, collected in books. Reading is boring and uncool, but that's where you can find so much help. Ebooks or "thin books" are easier to read and may motivate. also the odd reader or two. Get rid of stress is nicely written and, above all, the content is useful. It is a complete solution, not an instant solution and not a pill that does everything well. The really good things always involve a lot of work.

Review by N. Kerkhoff

Good and helpful book
Good book with helpful tips to cope with stress. In today's fast-paced world in particular, it is important to get inspiration to focus on yourself and on inner serenity.

Review by Dani

Practical tips
They are really good tips that are certainly easy to implement. However, it is too "stressful" for me personally. Through the short chapters one does not read in a river, but it is always jumped back and forth in the topic.

Fight time thieves efficiently

Review by KiCQ

The inner sorcerer is always on alert
This book shows a particular problem in our society: Many people feel like a firefighter on call, always ready to perform and have simply never learned to simply say "no". Author Cornelia Topf sums that up very nicely. I was particularly enthusiastic about the interview with the sales director at Google, who makes it clear that everyone is responsible for how they divide their resources. So, simply switch off the often self-made permanent alarm and send the inner Leister home more often. Our health will thank us.

Review by Raspa

Time thieves are everywhere, but how do you avoid them?
I know only too well that someone or something is stealing my time: the boss who wants something quickly ... the grandmother, who of course needs something from the city on Friday during the shopping rush hour Weeks could have gotten) ... Or also the computer, on which I just wanted to have a quick look and then can only tear myself away two hours later. That's why I find this book so incredibly helpful: It shows where such time traps lurk and how to fight them or not to even tap into them. Great suggestions, great examples from practice and as a special treat, a chapter on mindfulness.

Review by Marc

Nothing new...
... if you have already dealt with the topic a little. The praised applicability eludes my perception.

Review by Kis Magyar

Platitudes, nothing new ...
For anyone who has ever dealt a little with time planning and organization, the book offers absolutely nothing new. On the contrary, platitudes are listed and packed into extensive empty phrases. Anyone who has lived from one day to the next without any planning or conception may find one or two helpful tips included. For everyone else, hands off!
