Für jedes Unternehmen stehen Innovation und Kreativität ganz oben auf der Wunschliste. Doch nur wenige schaffen es, immer wieder Neues zu entwickeln. Pixar ist eines dieser Unternehmen. Die Pixar Animation Studios schreiben seit über 25 Jahren Erfolgsgeschichte mit Blockbustern wie "Toy Story", "Findet Nemo", "Cars" und vielen mehr. Ed Catmull, einer der Gründer von Pixar, gibt in seinem Buch tiefe Einblicke in die Unternehmensführung und das Management dieses außergewöhnlichen Unternehmens. Er zeigt, wie man mit Unsicherheit umgeht, zerstörerische Kräfte überwindet – und warum man viel mehr erreicht, wenn man den Mitarbeitern Freiheit gibt, statt sie zu kontrollieren.

Am Beginn einer jeden Erfolgsgeschichte steht eine einfache Frage: Warum? Warum sind manche Organisationen profitabler als andere? Warum werden einige Führungskräfte von ihren Mitarbeitern mehr geschätzt und andere weniger? Warum sind manche Menschen in der Lage, immer und immer wieder erfolgreich zu sein? In seinem Bestseller, der nun zum ersten Mal in deutscher Sprache erscheint, zeigt Simon Sinek, dass erfolgreiche Persönlichkeiten wie Martin Luther King Jr. oder Steve Jobs alle nach demselben, natürlichen Muster dachten, handelten und kommunizierten. Am Anfang ihres Wirkens stand immer die Frage nach dem Warum. Mit diesem Ansatz schafften sie es, bedeutende Dinge zu vollbringen und darüber hinaus ihre Mitstreiter zu inspirieren. Sich an diesen Vorbildern orientierend, gibt Sinek in seinem Ratgeber nun Führungskräften, Unternehmen, aber auch Privatpersonen einen Leitfaden an die Hand, der zum endgültigen Erfolg verhilft. Dabei erklärt er das so erfolgreiche Muster, welches dem goldenen Schnitt ähnlich ist, und auf den drei elementaren Fragen basiert: Warum? Wie? Was? Dadurch eröffnen sich dem Leser völlig neue Möglichkeiten und er wird lernen, dass die Motivierung von Mitarbeitern viel zielführender ist als ihre Manipulation! Und dies geht ganz einfach: einfach »Warum?« fragen.

Hunde sind nicht immer mutig: Die Evolution hatte noch nicht genug Zeit, sie auf das Leben in unserer modernen Gesellschaft mit all den zahllosen Umweltreizen und der Enge vorzubereiten. Angststörungen oder angstbedingte Verhaltensprobleme sind deshalb einer der größten Problemkomplexe, mit dem Hundehalter zu kämpfen haben. Nicole Wilde hat das bisher umfassendste Buch zum Thema geschrieben und gibt dem Hundehalter wirklich umsetzbare Tipps an die Hand. Wovor auch immer Ihr Hund sich fürchtet: Hier finden Sie und er Hilfe!. Verkriecht er sich zitternd, wenn es donnert, hat er Angst vor fremden Menschen, spielt er nicht mit anderen Hunden oder zuckt er zusammen, wenn er ins Auto einsteigen soll? Die Autorin beleuchtet die Ursachen, Entstehung und Auswirkungen angstbedingten Verhaltens ausführlich und macht Trainingsvorschläge, die nachvollziehbar in die Tat umzusetzen sind. Dabei kommen ausschließlich positive und gewaltfreie Methoden zum Einsatz.
