Good Boss, Bad Boss

How to Be the Best... and Learn from the Worst

Now with a new chapter that focuses on what great bosses really do. Sutton adds revelatory thoughts about such legendary bosses as Ed Catmull, Steve Jobs, A.G. Lafley, and many more, and how you can implement their techniques. If you are a boss who wants to do great work, what can you do about it? Good Boss, Bad Boss is devoted to answering that question. Stanford Professor Robert Sutton weaves together the best psychological and management research with compelling stories and cases to reveal the mindset and moves of the best (and worst) bosses. This book was inspired by the deluge of emails, research, phone calls, and conversations that Dr. Sutton experienced after publishing his blockbuster bestseller The No Asshole Rule. He realized that most of these stories and studies swirled around a central figure in every workplace: THE BOSS. These heart-breaking, inspiring, and sometimes funny stories taught Sutton that most bosses - and their followers - wanted a lot more than just a jerk-free workplace. They aspired to become (or work for) an all-around great boss, somebody with the skill and grit to inspire superior work, commitment, and dignity among their charges. As Dr. Sutton digs into the nitty-gritty of what the best (and worst) bosses do, a theme runs throughout Good Boss, Bad Boss - which brings together the diverse lessons and is a hallmark of great bosses: They work doggedly to "stay in tune" with how their followers (and superiors, peers, and customers too) react to what they say and do. The best bosses are acutely aware that their success depends on having the self-awareness to control their moods and moves, to accurately interpret their impact on others, and to make adjustments on the fly that continuously spark effort, dignity, and pride among their people.

“Mantle and Lichty have assembled a guide that will help you hire, motivate, and mentor a software development team that functions at the highest level. Their rules of thumb and coaching advice are great blueprints for new and experienced software engineering managers alike.” —Tom Conrad, CTO, Pandora “I wish I’d had this material available years ago. I see lots and lots of ‘meat’ in here that I’ll use over and over again as I try to become a better manager. The writing style is right on, and I love the personal anecdotes.” —Steve Johnson, VP, Custom Solutions, DigitalFish All too often, software development is deemed unmanageable. The news is filled with stories of projects that have run catastrophically over schedule and budget. Although adding some formal discipline to the development process has improved the situation, it has by no means solved the problem. How can it be, with so much time and money spent to get software development under control, that it remains so unmanageable? In Managing the Unmanageable: Rules, Tools, and Insights for Managing Software People and Teams , Mickey W. Mantle and Ron Lichty answer that persistent question with a simple observation: You first must make programmers and software teams manageable. That is, you need to begin by understanding your people—how to hire them, motivate them, and lead them to develop and deliver great products. Drawing on their combined seventy years of software development and management experience, and highlighting the insights and wisdom of other successful managers, Mantle and Lichty provide the guidance you need to manage people and teams in order to deliver software successfully. Whether you are new to software management, or have already been working in that role, you will appreciate the real-world knowledge and practical tools packed into this guide.

Fully revised and expanded for the first time in a decade, this is Guy Kawasaki's classic, bestselling guide to launching and making your new product, service, or idea a success. Whether you're an aspiring entrepreneur, small-business owner, intrapreneur, or not-for-profit leader, there's no shortage of advice on topics such as innovating, recruiting, fund raising, and branding. In fact, there are so many books, articles, websites, blogs, webinars, and conferences that many startups get paralyzed, or they focus on the wrong priorities and go broke before they succeed. The Art of the Start 2.0 solves that problem by distilling Guy Kawasaki's decades of experience as one of the most hardworking and irreverent strategists in the business world. Guy has totally overhauled this iconic, essential guide for anyone starting anything. It’s 64 percent longer than version 1.0 and features his latest insights and practical advice about social media, crowdfunding, cloud computing, and many other topics. Guy understands the seismic changes in business over the last decade: Once-invulnerable market leaders are struggling. Many of the basics of getting established have become easier, cheaper, and more democratic. Business plans are no longer necessary. Social media has replaced PR and advertising as the key method of promotion. Crowdfunding is now a viable alternative to investors. The cloud makes basic infrastructure affordable for almost any new venture. The Art of the Start 2.0 will show you how to effectively deploy all these new tools. And it will help you master the fundamental challenges that have not changed: building a strong team, creating an awesome product or service, and facing down your competition. As Guy likes to say, “Entrepreneur is a state of mind, not a job title.” His book will help you make your crazy ideas stick, through an adventure that's more art than science – the art of the start.

Darksiders 02. Die Kammer der Macht

Die Reiter der Apokalypse im Kampf gegen eine Verschwörung, die die ganze Welt ins Chaos stürzen könnte! Einige Jahrtausende vor den Geschehnissen von Darksiders und Darksiders II, wurden zwei der gefürchteten Reiter der Apokalypse, Tod und Krieg, damit beauftragt, eine Gruppe Abtrünniger zu stoppen, die die Kammer der Macht ausfindig machen wollen: Einen Ort, an dem Waffen von unvorstellbarer Macht und Grausamkeit verborgen liegen. Damit wäre der brüchige Waffenstillstand zwischen Himmel und Hölle zum Scheitern verurteilt ... Darksiders: Kammer der Macht entstand in enger Zusammenarbeit mit den Teams von Darksiders II, Vigil und THQ. Dieser Roman gibt einen aufregenden Einblick in die Geschichte und die Welt der Reiter und beleuchtet auf neue Weise die unzerstörbare Bindung zwischen Krieg und Tod. An dieser Stelle würde Ihnen Ari Marmell nun gerne alles über die vielen esoterischen Jobs erzählen, die er bereits absolviert hat und über die spannenden Abenteuer berichten, die er auf dem Weg zum Schriftsteller bestehen musste. Unglücklicherweise ist das Aufregendste, was er bislang geleistet hat, seine Arbeit für Dungeons Dragons und andere Rollenspiele. Und natürlich das Bücherschreiben. Von ihm stammen sowohl Der Dämon des Kriegers und Die Tochter des Kriegers als auch eine ganze Reihe weiterer Geschichten, wie z. B. Die Horde: Die Schlacht von Morthûl, Agents of Artifice (Magic: The Gathering) und Thief's Covenant: A Widdershins Adventure. Marmell lebt derzeit in einem Apartment, das beinahe so chaotisch ist wie sein Unterbewusstsein. Er teilt selbiges (die Wohnung, nicht das Unterbewusstsein, auch wenn es manchmal anders scheinen mag) mit seiner Frau George und zwei Katzen, denen man vielleicht mal einen Lautstärkeregler einbauen sollte.
