From the New York Times bestselling author of Great by Choice comes an authoritative, practical guide to individual performance - based on analysis from an exhaustive, groundbreaking study. Why do some people perform better at work than others? This deceptively simple question continues to confound professionals in all sectors of the workforce. Now, after a unique, five-year study of more than 5,000 managers and employees, Morten Hansen reveals the answers in his ´ Seven Work Smarter Practices ´ that can be applied by anyone looking to maximise their time and performance. Each of Hansen´s seven practices is highlighted by inspiring stories from individuals in his comprehensive study. You´ll meet a high school principal who engineered a dramatic turnaround of his failing high school; a rural Indian farmer determined to establish a better way of life for women in his village; and a sushi chef, whose simple preparation has led to his restaurant (tucked away under a Tokyo subway station underpass) being awarded the maximum of three Michelin stars. Hansen also explains how the way Alfred Hitchcock filmed Psycho and the 1911 race to become the first explorer to reach the South Pole both illustrate the use of his seven practices (even before they were identified). Each chapter contains questions and key insights to allow you to assess your own performance and figure out your work strengths, as well as your weaknesses . Once you understand your individual style, there are mini-quizzes, questionnaires and clear tips to assist you focus on a strategy to become a more productive worker. Extensive, accessible and friendly, Great at Work will help you achieve more by working less , backed by unprecedented statistical analysis.

Westernreiten und Horsemanship unter einem Hut - mit Trainingstipps von Elias Ernst und Thomas Günther Wir alle wissen meist ziemlich gut, wie wir unsere Pferde körperlich trainieren bzw. gymnastizieren. Wir vergessen nur allzu schnell, dass unsere Pferde denkende Wesen sind, die in der Lage sind, selbstständig gestellte Aufgaben zu erledigen. Deswegen sollte unser Augenmerk neben der körperlichen Fitness auch auf den emotionalen und mentalen Belangen unserer Pferde liegen. Die Autorin zeigt Wege auf wie das Turnier zum gemeinsamen Projekt von Pferd und Mensch wird, in dem das Pferd genauso viel Ehrgeiz und Energie ins Ziel ´Turniererfolg´ investiert wie der Mensch. Das Buch gibt Anleitungen, wie Sie die Athletik Ihres Pferdes verbessern, während das Pferd das Training als Spiel empfindet. Viele Manöver können wir bereits dem jungen Pferd spielerisch am Boden erklären und das Gelernte dann später in den Sattel übertragen. Aber auch fürs erwachsene Pferd lohnt sich der Blick überden Tellerrand, denn selbst wenn das Pferd schon vieles kann, so kann der Mensch auf jeden Fall seine Begeisterung durch Horsemanship steigern und dem Pferd auch das Gefühl vermitteln, dass es etwas zurück erhält. Denn das ist das A & O des Natural Horsemanship (NHS): Wir stellen die Beziehung zum Pferd an die allererste Stelle. Das Buch gibt nicht nur Anleitungen zu grundlegenden Techniken des NHS, sondern enthält Vorschläge und Anleitungen wie dies in den Disziplinen Trail, Westernhorsemanship, Westernriding, Reining, Cutting und Working Cowhorse angewandt werden kann. Letztere Disziplinen beruhen auf dem, was die Autorin und ihre Tochter bei einem Kurs bei Horsemanship-Legende Pat Parelli gelernt haben. Die Tochter wurde von weit über Tausend Bewerbern für einen kostenlosen Platz bei einem Kurs in Florida ausgewählt, bei dem ausnahmaslos Pat Parelli persönlich unterrichtet hat und in dem es um das Natural Horsemanship auf einem sehr fortgeschrittenen Niveau ging. Im Buch enthalten sind Fotoserien als Schritt-für-Schritt-Anleitung (135 Farbfotos insgesamt) und über 60 Links zu zum Text passenden (Lehr-)videos der Autorin auf Youtube.
