Selbstsicheres Auftreten und die Beherrschung von Small Talk sind nicht alles. Susan Cains glänzendes Plädoyer für die Qualitäten der Stillen. „Ein leerer Topf klappert am lautesten“. Aber wer der Welt etwas Bedeutendes schenken will, benötigt Zeit und Sorgfalt, um es in Stille reifen zu lassen. „Still“ ist ein Plädoyer für die Ruhe, die in unserer Welt des Marktgeschreis und der Klingeltöne zu verschwinden droht. Und für leise Menschen, die lernen sollten, zu ihrem „So-Sein“ zu stehen. Ohne sie hätten wir heute keine Relativitätstheorie, keinen „Harry Potter“, keine Klavierstücke Chopins, und auch die Suchmaschine „Google“ wäre nie entwickelt worden. „Still“ baut eine Brücke zwischen den Welten, kritisiert aber das gesellschaftliche Ungleichgewicht zugunsten der Partylöwen und Dampfplauderer. Es herrscht eine „extrovertierte Ethik“, die stille Wasser zwingt, sich anzupassen oder unterzugehen. Ihre Eigenschaften – Ernsthaftigkeit, Sensibilität und Scheu – gelten eher als Krankheitssymptome denn als Qualitäten. Zu unrecht, sagt Susan Cain, und stellt sich gegen den Trend, der „selbstbewusstes Auftreten“ verherrlicht. „Still“ ist das Kultbuch für Introvertierte, hilft aber auch Extrovertierten, ihre Mitmenschen besser zu verstehen.

Caring Is a Competitive Advantage Suffering in the workplace can rob our colleagues and coworkers of humanity, dignity, and motivation and is an unrecognized and costly drain on organizational potential. Marshaling evidence from two decades of field research, scholars and consultants Monica Worline and Jane Dutton show that alleviating such suffering confers measurable competitive advantages in areas like innovation, collaboration, service quality, and talent attraction and retention. They outline four steps for meeting suffering with compassion and show how to build a capacity for compassion into the structures and practices of an organization—because ultimately, as they write, “Compassion is an irreplaceable dimension of excellence for any organization that wants to make the most of its human capabilities.”

Topologies of Power

Beyond territory and networks

Topologies of Power amounts to a radical departure in the way that power and space have been understood. It calls into question the very idea that power is simply extended across a given territory or network, and argues that power today has a new found ‘reach’. Topological shifts have subtly altered the reach of power, enabling governments, corporations and NGOs alike to register their presence through quieter, less brash forms of power than domination or overt control. In a world in which proximity and distance increasingly play across one another, topology offers an insight into how power remains continuous under transformation: the same but different in its ability to shape peoples’ lives. Drawing upon a range of political, economic and cultural illustrations, the book sets out a clear and accessible account of the topological workings of power in the contemporary moment. It will be invaluable for both students and academics in human geography, politics, sociology, and cultural studies.


The Quiet Power : Conflict Resolution for Churches Through Mediation

While mediation is not a new way to resolve conflict, it has not been systematically employed to resolve conflict within the church. In his new book, PEACEMAKING: THE QUIET POWER, Terje Hausken unites his experience & training as a mediator & as a pastor to make a compelling & practical case for the use of mediation techniques to resolve high conflict situations within the church. The book opens with four case studies of churches in high conflict. It then discusses the mediation principles most applicable to church conflicts. Finally, practical advice is offered on how to establish mediation programs within churches for dealing with specific high conflict situations as well as how to design ongoing mediation programs that help prevent minor disagreements from becoming destructive conflicts. Hausken says the church's need for more effective ways to deal with conflict is critical. He notes several reasons why conflict in the church is more apparent. He sees more stress-generated conflicts among church members today than in the past. There is also more conflict among church staff members as the autocratic management position of some senior ministers becomes less workable. Finally, there is the conflict generated by the recent flood of sexual misconduct allegations in the church. PEACEMAKING: THE QUIET POWER, CONFLICT RESOLUTION FOR CHURCHES THROUGH MEDIATION, offers helpful & theoretically sound advice for both Clergy & lay persons; be they denominational leaders or the local devil's advocate.

The Ecology of Care

Medicine, Agriculture, Money, and the Quiet Power of Human and Microbial Communities

What can Cuban doctors, innovative ranchers in Saskatchewan, and the microbiome teach us about how to care for people and the Earth at the same time? In this richly layered book, Didi Pershouse takes us on a fast-moving, sharp-witted journey through her own life: from growing up with the neurosurgeon who accidentally discovered the seat of memory in the brain, to working in a smoke-filled office at New York magazine, to her career as an innovative acupuncturist in Vermont, and on to a passion for close-knit communities, grazing cows, and soil restoration as solutions to much of what ails us.Along the way, she unfolds a surprising new take on the story of our time: how the germ theory of disease joined with a profit-based economy, and unwittingly led to a "sterilization" of medicine, agriculture, and even our social lives. This 150-year detour has brought about the near destruction of our climate as well as a great forgetting of the power of connection.By documenting a scientific understanding of the intelligence of the whole, Pershouse nudges us awake with a hopeful view and shows us how to reclaim the rich, "fertile" lives we are meant for.

Als Susan Cain ein Teenager war, wurde sie oft gefragt, warum sie so still ist. Daraufhin zwang sie sich jahrelang, im Unterricht das Wort zu ergreifen und auf Partys zu gehen, auch wenn sie ihre freie Zeit lieber mit einer guten Freundin verbracht hätte. Im Laufe der Jahre erkannte Susan, dass ihre Introvertiertheit keine Schwäche, sondern eine Stärke war. Sie nahm sich Zeit zum Nachdenken, war ausgeglichen und eine gute Zuhörerin. Ihr erstes Buch »Still« wurde ein weltweiter Erfolg und ermutigte viele Introvertierte, zu sich selbst zu stehen. In ihrem zweiten Buch dreht sich alles um die Welt von Kindern und Jugendlichen. Sie „sind oft talentiert, einzigartig und liebevoll. Und trotzdem denken sie, dass etwas mit ihnen nicht stimmt. Das muss sich ändern“, beschreibt Susan Cain ihr Anliegen, das hinter diesem wichtigen Buch steckt.
