This multinational team of authors has put together an introduction to communicating across cultures that draws on examples and case studies from across the world, using no single culture as its frame of reference. Structured around the links between theory and practice and between the global and the local, the discussion covers the key theories and their practical applications, as well as new topics often neglected in textbooks, such as international conflict, social networking, migrancy, and the effect that technology and mass media play in the globalization of communication. This book will not merely get students through their intercultural communication course, but help teach them to become a more critical consumer of information and understand the influence of their own culture on how they view themselves and others.

Die beste Suchmaschine ist unser Geist Seit 2007 bietet Google seinen Mitarbeitern ein Programm für persönliches Wachstum an: »Search inside yourself«. Den Anstoß dazu gab Chade-Meng Tan, ein Google-Ingenieur, der diesen Acht-Wochen-Kurs zusammen mit renommierten Wissenschaftlern wie Jon Kabat-Zinn und Daniel Goleman entwickelte. »Search inside yourself« bietet ein Achtsamkeitstraining, um emotionale Intelligenz zu erlernen, mit dem Ziel, zufriedener, gelassener, kreativer und schließlich auch erfolgreicher zu werden. Es umfasst Übungen und Meditationen, um die Konzentration zu verbessern, die Selbstwahrnehmung zu erhöhen und nützliche mentale Gewohnheiten zu entwickeln. Bei Google ist dieses Trainingsprogramm äußerst beliebt und nachgefragt. Chade-Meng Tan macht es nun erstmals öffentlich zugänglich. Mit Leichtigkeit und Witz, und dabei stets wissenschaftlich fundiert (er ist ja Ingenieur!) zeigt er einen etwas anderen, jedoch sehr vielversprechenden Weg zu Kreativität und Lebensglück. Und wenn das bei Google funktioniert – warum nicht auch bei uns?

Kommunikationspsychologie für alle – das Standardwerk Beruf, Beziehung, Alltag: Ständig müssen wir mit anderen kommunizieren. Und immer wieder entstehen dabei Probleme; selbst scheinbar einfache Situationen bergen Tücken. Oft gelingt es nicht, uns verständlich zu machen, geschweige denn, uns durchzusetzen. Und ebenso oft begreifen wir unser Gegenüber nicht. Gespräche werden zum Streit, ohne dass uns so recht klar ist, warum. Friedemann Schulz von Thun zeigt, welche Erkenntnisse die Kommunikationspsychologie bietet, damit wir persönlich und sachlich besser miteinander klarkommen. Miteinander reden 1 erklärt, wie zwischenmenschliche Kommunikation abläuft. Was sind die typischen Probleme? Und wie können wir sie beheben? Band 2 stellt die unterschiedlichen Kommunikationsstile vor, die Menschen haben. Wie gehen wir damit jeweils am besten um? Und wie können wir das Wissen um unseren eigenen Kommunikationsstil für unsere Persönlichkeitsentwicklung nutzen? Band 3 schließlich stellt das Modell des «Inneren Teams» vor. Die Erkenntnis dahinter: Wer sich selbst versteht, kommuniziert besser. Alles, was man wissen muss, um stimmig zu kommunizieren! «Wenn es um Kommunikation oder Rhetorik geht, kommt man um den Namen Schulz von Thun nicht herum.» Psychologie heute
