Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of...

In this pathbreaking work, Edward S. Herman and Noam Chomsky show that, contrary to the usual image of the news media as cantankerous, obstinate, and ubiquitous in their search for truth and defense of justice, in their actual practice they defend the economic, social, and political agendas of the privileged groups that dominate domestic society, the state, and the global order. Based on a series of case studies-including the media's dichotomous treatment of "worthy" versus "unworthy" victims, "legitimizing" and "meaningless" Third World elections, and devastating critiques of media coverage of the U.S. wars against Indochina-Herman and Chomsky draw on decades of criticism and research to propose a Propaganda Model to explain the media's behavior and performance. Their new introduction updates the Propaganda Model and the earlier case studies, and it discusses several other applications. These include the manner in which the media covered the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement and subsequent Mexican financial meltdown of 1994-1995, the media's handling of the protests against the World Trade Organization, World Bank, and International Monetary Fund in 1999 and 2000, and the media's treatment of the chemical industry and its regulation. What emerges from this work is a powerful assessment of how propagandistic the U.S. mass media are, how they systematically fail to live up to their self-image as providers of the kind of information that people need to make sense of the world, and how we can understand their function in a radically new way.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Change begins with a decision. To move beyond that decision to positive life change requires discipline. In Discipline Strategy, Dr. Coomer translates the word DISCIPLINE into an acronym for a ten-step life change process. Don't be uncertain or confused for another day. You can become the hero of your own life's story. The DISCIPLINE STRATEGY® approach works for both business and personal challenges and will guide you from the point of decision to accomplishment. Dr. Coomer is a serial entrepreneur and personality researcher with a deep understanding of how personality impacts performance. To enhance your ability to implement the DISCIPLINE STRATEGY® process, this book includes a free comprehensive personality assessment. Many of today's self-help books offer a prescription for change but fail to provide an answer to your specific challenges. A better approach is to learn a process that supports genuine change and allows you to become your own customized expert. In this way, you'll learn to: • [DECIDE] Make sound decisions. • [INVESTIGATE] Investigate relevant topics. • [SORT] Sort through information with a critical eye. • [CONCEIVE] Conceive a detailed plan. • [IMPLEMENT] Implement the plan. • [PERSEVERE] Move forward with passion and perseverance. • [LOOP] Use a feedback loop to evaluate your progress and make adjustments where needed. • [INTENSIFY] Intensify your efforts where appropriate. • [NOTICE] Take notice of what you have accomplished. • [ENJOY] Enjoy the fruits of your labors using the positive psychology concept of PERMA. This is your roadmap for change, the ultimate guide to making a great decision, becoming your own guru, and accomplishing your goal.

"Haudan's approach helps organizations bring strategies to life by engaging the hearts and minds of their people." -Marcus Buckingham, bestselling author of Go Put Your Strengths to Work Almost any business leader will admit that creating a strategy is far easier than executing it. That's because the majority of organizations don't know how to bridge the canyons that exist between executives, managers, and front-line employees. Most strategic initiatives fail when a company tries to execute strategy despite its people rather than through them. As CEO of consultancy Root Learning, Jim Haudan has more than twenty years experience helping businesses bridge these canyons and achieve their strategic goals. Here, he shares his secrets for driving this strategic execution. Refreshingly accessible, this important book presents executives, managers, and team leaders with a proven, effective way to communicate, empower, and motivate employees at every level of an organization. Through stories, illustrations, and insightful observations Haudan explores the concept of engagement in business--from the "roots of engagement" to the six reasons why so many workers rank themselves as disengaged to the keys to unlocking engagement in any organization. He also includes a framework for implementing the process of strategically engaging employees as well as a self-assessment for checking your own company's level of strategic engagement. The Art of Engagement equips you with a range of tools--sketches, illustrations, and highly visual "learning maps"--to help employees speak the same language, see from the same point of view, and connect their individual actions to the success of the whole company. Included are: * Engaging visual learning tools designed to help you communicate more effectively with your workforce * Proven methods for successfully engaging employees at every level of an organization * Real-world case studies of such organizations as Harley-Davidson, Pepsi Cola, and Blockbuster A strategy may look perfect on paper, but it's worthless if leaders forget that human beings have to implement it. The Art of Engagement arms you with the knowledge and the know-how to engage your employees and drive effective strategic execution.

Better Than Normal: How What Makes You Differen...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A groundbreaking new view of human psychology that shows how eight key traits of human behavior—long perceived as liabilities—can be important hidden strengths. What if the inattentiveness that makes school or work a challenge holds the secret to your future as an entrepreneur? What if the shyness in groups that you hate is the source of deep compassion for others? What if the anxiety and nervousness you often feel can actually help energize you? What if the mood swings you sometimes experience can be the source of tremendous creativity? Renowned psychiatrist and popular on-air personality Dr. Dale Archer believes that labels for behavior like “ADHD”, “bipolar”, and “OCD” are normal human qualities—and contends that we all experience these and other psychological traits to some extent, yet fail to leverage the significant advantages they can offer. Worse, we stigmatize one another for these prevalent, widely shared aspects of our personalities. In Better Than Normal, Dr. Archer offers an empowering framework for redefining what constitutes mental health. Drawing on his 20 years of clinical experience, he describes eight traits of human behavior—heretofore knownonly as psychiatric diagnoses. Each of these occurs along a continuum rather than as a simple on-off switch (where “off ” means we’re fine, and “on” means we’ve got a problem). These are the aspects of our personality that we worry about the most, but these are also the very things that make us distinctive and different.According to Dr. Archer, each of us has a unique personality that emerges from our hardwired genetics and individual life experiences. With Better Than Normal, you can map your individual characteristics by taking the eight-trait self-assessment quiz and see how what makes you different can indeed make you exceptional. Filled with engaging anecdotes and practical tools to help you capitalize on your unique character 1. Language: English. Narrator: Marc Cashman.

Pragmatic Insights for Successfully Managing Your Unique Agile Team or Organization In many organizations, management is the biggest obstacle to successful Agile development. Unfortunately, reliable guidance on Agile management has been scarce indeed. Now, leading Agile manager Jurgen Appelo fills that gap, introducing a realistic approach to leading, managing, and growing your Agile team or organization. Writing for current managers and developers moving into management, Appelo shares insights that are grounded in modern complex systems theory, reflecting the intense complexity of modern software development. Appelo's Management 3.0 model recognizes that today's organizations are living, networked systems; that you can't simply let them run themselves; and that management is primarily about people and relationships. Management 3.0 doesn't offer mere checklists or prescriptions to follow slavishly: rather it deepens your understanding of how organizations and Agile teams work, and gives you tools to solve your own problems. Drawing on his extensive experience as an Agile manager and trainer, Appelo identifies the most valuable elements of Agile management, and helps you improve each of them. Coverage includes Getting beyond "Management 1.0" command hierarchies, and "Management 2.0" fads Understanding how complexity and non-linearity affect your organization-and why the best-laid plans so often fail Giving teams the care and feeding they need to grow on their own Defining boundaries and constraints, so teams can succeed in alignment with company goals Anticipating issues teams won't or can't resolve by themselves Sowing the seeds for a culture of software craftsmanship Keeping your people active, creative, motivated, and energized Helping teams develop crucial missing skills and disciplines Crafting organizational networks and communication flows that promote success Making change desirable-and making stagnation painful Implementing continuous improvement that actually works Thoroughly pragmatic-and never trendy-Jurgen Appelo's Management 3.0 will help you bring greater agility to any software organization, team, or project.

The Real State Of The Union
2,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Resulting from a collaboration between The Atlantic Monthly magazine and the New America Foundation, The Real State of the Union features 18 original essays on the most important facets of our national well-being. Written by many of our nation's most insightful observers, the essays provide an objective and penetrating analysis of the most critical challenges facing America as well as innovative solutions to many of them.The State of the Union Address is among the nation's oldest rituals, but one that has deviated from its original purpose: Rather than a candid assessment of the country or a meaningful self-evaluation by the current administration, it has become a political spectacle marked by self-congratulation and spin. The Real State of the Union seeks to turn an empty exercise into a more meaningful national dialogue about the social, political, and economic health of our country. Rejecting the political correctness of both parties, this volume tells the American public what it needs to know about the real problems that plague the country and why the political solutions that are offered too often fail to address the real nature of those problems.
