„Als Managing Transitions vor 25 Jahren zum ersten Mal erschien, kam es genau zum richtigen Zeitraum. Doch heute, in Zeiten beispiellosen Wandels und Übergänge, ist es relevanter denn je. Das tiefe Verständnis der Autoren darüber, wie wir heute die destabilisierenden Kräfte der Veränderung wahrnehmen, ihre Strategien, den Menschen zu helfen, dass die Übergänge gelingen, sind so bedeutsam.“ Marshall Goldsmith, Bestsellerautor und Top 1-Coach auf der „Coaching Gurus 30“-Liste. Das Geschäftsleben unterliegt einer konstanten Transformation.

Sie müssen sich dem Wandel stellen. William Bridges erklärt in diesem Standardwerk, welche Lebenszyklen Organisationen durchlaufen und wie Übergänge erfolgreich durchzustehen sind: Die Mitarbeiter einer Organisation müssen den Sinn der Transition erkennen, einen Plan haben und wissen, welche Rolle sie in einem Veränderungsprozess übernehmen sollen. Bei diesem Prozess akzeptieren die Mitarbeiter Schritt für Schritt die Details einer neuen Situation und die damit heraufziehenden Veränderungen. Nur auf diesem Weg ist nachhaltiger Wandel möglich, ohne dass die Mitarbeitenden „verloren gehen“. Aus dem Inhalt: - Veränderungen sind nicht das Problem - Die Bereitschaft zur Veränderung prüfen - Loslassen lernen - Einen Neubeginn initiieren - Übergänge, Entwicklung und Erneuerung - Übergänge planen und ein Transition Monitoring Team aufbauen - Wie wir mit ständiger Veränderung umgehen können Dieses Buch richtet sich an Führungskräfte und unterstützt sie in unsicheren Zeiten mit praktischen Schritt-für-Schritt-Strategien mit dem Ziel, Störungen zu minimieren.

Cultural Diversity as a Strategic Advantage This insightful and practical work should be required reading for managers, physicians, nurses, allied health caregivers, and support staff, in order to overcome barriers to communication and change in dealing with an increasingly complex patient and employee base. I highly Andorse this excellent book written by these outstanding authors. --Donald R. Oxley, vice president and executive director, Kaiser Permanente As reflected in new cultural competency requirements for health care organizations, sensitivity to and understanding of cultural diversity have become mandatory for health care professionals. However, most health care professionals have little or no training on how to deal with the challenges of cultural diversity. With Managing Diversity in Health Care, you'll learn effective strategies fundamental to creating a culturally diverse health care organization. This essential handbook provides you with the necessary knowledge and tools to become more responsive to culturally diverse patient and staff populations. The authors show how to build diverse teams, deal with the thorny issues of prejudice and bias, and communicate effectively within a diverse health care setting.
