We’ve all heard that Millennials are smarter than everyone else, unique in every way possible, that they have probably been millionaires since age seven, and that they are poised to take over the world. We’ve also heard that they are lazy, unmotivated, entitled, and condescending know-it-alls. How can this generation have such opposing characteristics? What is the truth about this generation? The Millennial Mindset offers parents, educators, managers, and co-workers insights and suggestions on how to engage, prepare, and foster the Millennial generation in all aspects of life. Through interviews with millennials and those who work with or otherwise engage them, Regina Luttrell and Karen McGrath offer ways for Millennials to better understand older generations and their peers so they can coexist without animosity in today’s fast-paced globalized world. They also offer insight into Millennial characteristics, passions, and goals for those who work with, live with, or otherwise co-exist with Millennials. Readers will gain a better sense of what this generation has in store for the world, and how the world can best respond.

Embracing diversity, valuing people, taking action Over 50 million Latinos live in the United States, and it’s estimated that by 2050 one in three of the US population will be Hispanic. What does it take to lead such a varied and vibrant people who hail from twenty-two different countries and are a blend of different races? And what can leaders of all cultures and ethnicities learn from how Latinos lead? Juana Bordas takes us on a journey to the very heart and soul of Latino leadership. She offers ten principles that richly illustrate the inclusive, people-oriented, socially responsible, and life-affirming way Latinos have led their communities. Bordas includes the voices and experiences of other distinguished Latino leaders and vivid dichos (traditional sayings) that illustrate positive aspects of the Latino culture. This unprecedented book illustrates powerful and distinctive lessons that will inform leaders of every background. “America grows more diverse by the day. Leaders want to understand and motivate those they lead but may feel intimidated by the complex history and culture of Latinos in America. Juana Bordas has written a handbook for making sense of it all. The Power of Latino Leadership helps the reader decode the coming America and the changing workforce.” —Ray Suarez, Senior Correspondent, PBS News Hour, and former host, Talk of the Nation, NPR “Bordas has mentored generations of young Hispanics throughout her distinguished career. [Here] she presents a compelling case for how the strengths Hispanics bring to the table...can infuse new life into leadership development for all of our country’s current and future leaders.” —Janet Murguía, President, National Council of La Raza “Juana Bordas provides timely insight into Latino contributions to our nation’s future and why their influence will continue to increase.” —Arturo Vargas, Executive Director, National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials “To develop a deeper appreciation for the countless contributions the Latino community is making to America’s multicultural leadership journey, read this book!” —Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The One Minute Manager and Great Leaders Grow

Generational IQ for the Workplace and Home Collection

This collection bundles 2 of popular author Haydn Shaw’s books together in one e-book, for a great value! Sticking Points This is the first time in American history that we have had four different generations working side-by-side in the workplace: the Traditionalists (born before 1945), the Baby Boomers (born 1945-1964), Gen X (born 1965-1980), and the Millennials (born 1981-2001). Haydn Shaw, popular business speaker and generational expert, has identified 12 places where the 4 generations typically come apart in the workplace (and in life as well). These sticking points revolve around differing attitudes toward managing one’s own time, texting, social media, organizational structure, and of course, clothing preferences. If we don’t learn to work together and stick together around these 12 sticking points, then we’ll be wasting a lot of time fighting each other instead of enjoying a friendly and productive team. Sticking Points is a must-read book that will help you understand the generational differences you encounter while teaching how we can learn to speak one another’s language and get better results together. Generational IQ Why is my daughter drifting from God? Why can’t I explain my life choices to my parents? When will my son get a real job? Within the last several decades, the world has shifted dramatically. The cracks of this fundamental shift appear everywhere: in our economy, in our cultural debates, in our political landscape, and, most important, in our churches. The problem is we tend to overreact to these changes, fearing that Christianity is dying. We need better Generational IQ, so we can respond to the changes but not be terrified by them. We need a wise generational coach. Haydn Shaw is that generational expert, showing us the roots of this generational shift and how it affects every one of us. Each generation, whether it’s the aging Boomers or the young Millennials, approaches God with a different set of questions and needs based on the times in which they grew up. Haydn walks you through these generational differences and paints a vision of hope for the future.

Denn das heraufdämmernde neue Jahrtausend verspricht nichts als Katastrophen.

Als „Generation X“ 1991 in den Vereinigten Staaten erschien, waren Leute wie Andy, Dag und Claire ihre Haltung, die lässige Unverbindlichkeit, Patchworkkleidung, ihre Trink- und Schlafgewohnheiten noch Fiktion. Inzwischen gehören ihre Wiedergänger zum täglichen Straßenbild der Städte weltweit. Millennials und Xennials, Emos, Hipster, die Generation Y und Z. Ihr Denken und Fühlen zu verstehen, wäre ohne „Generation X“ nicht möglich.

Wenn man einer Spinne den Kopf abreißt, dann stirbt sie. Aber wenn man einem Seestern ein Bein abschneidet, dann wächst ihm ein neues. Und das andere Bein kann zu einem komplett neuen Seestern heranwachsen. Herkömmliche Organisationen, die auf Hierarchien fußen, sind wie Spinnen. Aber nun beginnen Seesternorganisationen, das Gesicht der Wirtschaft und der Welt zu verändern. Was ist die versteckte Macht hinter dem Erfolg von Wikipedia, Craigslist und Skype? Was haben eBay, General Electric mit der Anti-Sklavereibewegung und der Frauenrechtsbewegung gemeinsam? Welche Grundsatzentscheidung ließ General Motors und Toyota zwei ganz verschiedene Pfade beschreiten? Wieso kann ein siegreich beendetes Verfahren vor dem Obersten Gerichtshof der USA der größte Fehler sein, den MGM jemals gemacht hat? Ori Brafman und Rod A. Beckström bieten unverhoffte Antworten, mitreißende Geschichten und unglaubliche Verknüpfungen. In 'Der Seestern und die Spinne' behaupten sie, dass es zwei Kategorien von Organisationen gibt: traditionelle 'Spinnen', die starre Hierarchien und Befehlsketten von oben nach unten haben, und revolutionäre 'Seesterne', die sich auf die Macht von Beziehungen unter Gleichgestellten stützen. 'Der Seestern und die Spinne' erkundet, was passiert, wenn Seesterne gegen Spinnen kämpfen (so wie die Musikindustrie gegen Napster, Kazaa und alle ihre Nachfolger vorging). Das Buch zeigt, wie alteingesessene Unternehmen und Institutionen lernen, mit Prinzipien der Seesternorganisation erfolgreicher zu sein. Der Seestern und die Spinne ist eines der seltenen Bücher, das Ihr Verständnis der Welt komplett verändern wird.

Dreaming of Eden

American Religion and Politics in a Wired World

In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve were tempted to take a bite out of an apple that promised them the "knowledge of good and evil." Today, a shiny apple with a bite out of it is the symbol of Apple Computers. The age of the Internet has speeded up human knowledge, and it also provides even more temptation to know more than may be good for us. Americans have been right at the forefront of the digital revolution, and we have felt its unsettling effects in both our religions and our politics. Susan Brooks Thistlethwaite argues that we long to return to the innocence of the Garden of Eden and not be faced with countless digital choices. But returning to the innocence of Eden is dangerous in this modern age and, instead, we can become wiser about the wired world.

Besinnung auf das wirklich Wichtige im Leben Die 5 fundamentalen Lebensweisheiten – verdichtet aus der Weisheitsessenz von über 200 älteren Menschen aus ganz verschiedenen religiösen, geistigen und sozialen Milieus. Gibt es das Geheimnis eines geglückten Lebens? Unzählige Bücher beschäftigen sich mit dieser Frage, die meisten von ihnen basieren allerdings eher auf Spekulation und den persönlichen Erfahrungen ihrer Autoren. Im Gegensatz dazu präsentiert Bestsellerautor John Izzo das lebendige Resultat einer soziologischen Studie, in deren Rahmen Hunderte von Menschen interviewt wurden. Izzo stellte ihnen Fragen wie „Was machte Sie am glücklichsten? “, „Was bereuen Sie am meisten?“, „Was zählt wirklich, und was stellte sich als unwesentlich heraus?“, „Was hätten Sie gern etwas früher gewusst?“ Daraus gewann er die Essenz der Lebensweisheit von über 200 älteren Menschen – Christen und Muslimen, Männern und Frauen, außergewöhnlich erfolgreichen und ganz „normalen“ Menschen. Überraschendes Ergebnis der Befragung: Unabhängig von Religion, Geschlecht, Hautfarbe und sozialem Status stimmten die Auskünfte weitgehend überein. Die „fünf Geheimnisse“, die John Izzo entdeckte, sind universell und können somit auch allen Lesern wertvolle und wirklich fundierte Lebenshilfe bieten. John Izzo zieht daraus die Konsequenz: „Wir müssen nicht warten, bis wir alt sind, um weise zu werden. Wir können die Geheimnisse des Lebens in jedem Alter entdecken, und je eher wir sie entdecken, desto erfüllter wird unser Leben sein. “ Geschenkbuch in liebevoller Ausstattung.

Left to Their Own Devices

How Digital Natives Are Reshaping the American Dream

"Digital natives" are hacking the American Dream. Young people brought up with the Internet, smartphones, and social media are quickly rendering old habits and norms a distant memory, creating the greatest generation gap in history. In this eye-opening book, digital sociologist Julie M. Albright looks at our device-obsessed society, and the many ways in which the post World War II American Dream is waning for the Millennial generation. Albright notes that in the former age of traditional media (dominated by three major TV networks and the national print media), values were more harmonized and time, synchronized. Today, with a deluge of information available 24/7, we are experiencing a sort of digital tribalism, with people coalescing inside of increasingly fragmented informational echo chambers. Digital media allows bad actors to enlarge the rifts between these siloed tribes in divide-and-conquer fashion, frothing up fears by propagating fake news and fake people online. What are other effects of hyper-connectivity coupled with disconnection from stabilizing social structures? Albright sees both positives and negatives. On the one hand, mobile connectivity has given "digital nomads" the unprecedented opportunity to work or live anywhere. On the other hand, new threats are emerging, including cyberbullying and the ability to radicalize marginalized youth, decreased physical exercise, increased isolation, anxiety and loneliness, ephemeral relationships, fragmented attention spans, lack of participation in community activities and the political process, and detachment from the calm of nature or the refuge of religion. In this time of rapid, global, technologically driven change, this book offers fresh insights into the effects of always-on devices on the family, community, business, and society at large.

„Dieses Produkt könnte Ihnen auch gefallen.“ Die Mechanismen, die hinter diesen bekannten Empfehlungen liegen, werden immer treffsicherer und sind ein guter Hinweis darauf, wohin sich Dienstleistung und Handel in den nächsten Jahren bewegen: Dank Big-Data-Auswertungen werden Kundenprofile so exakt wie nie zuvor. Kunden im Digitalzeitalter sind fortwährend am Vergleichen und Recherchieren, erhalten Kaufempfehlungen auf verschiedenen Plattformen, nutzen Preisvergleiche und Testtabellen und halten sich nicht zuletzt an die Empfehlungen von Freunden. Dank Mobile sind all diese zusätzlichen Kanäle immer und überall nutzbar. Die neue Erfolgsstrategie lautet deshalb „Context Business“: Der Kunde muss zu 360 Grad im Kontext seiner Entscheidungen erfasst werden: Wo befindet er sich? Was sind seine Vorlieben und Vorerfahrungen? Wem vertraut er? Dank neuer Software-Lösungen werden Produkte und Dienstleistungen immer kontextualisiert sein und sich optimal in das Leben jedes Nutzers fügen. Das Marktforschungsunternehmen IDC ermittelte: Europaweit werden Unternehmen bis 2018 dank Big Data einen Umsatz von 70 Milliarden Dollar erzielen. Für die Zukunft gilt: Ohne Context kein Commerce.
