Wer ist stark, wer ist schwach? Sind die Schwachen nicht die eigentlich Starken? Wer und was bestimmt, wer stark ist? Die Auswahl der Waffen, das Unterlaufen der Zensur, das Umschreiben der Erinnerung, die Inszenierung oder doch die Musik? Alle Texte widmen sich auf einem anderen Feld diesem Thema und werden so dem interdisziplinaren Ansatz des Collegium Pontes gerecht. Das Collegium Pontes Gorlitz-Zgorzelec-Zhořelec hat unter der Schirmherrschaft der Aussenminister der Bundesrepublik Deutschland, der Republik Polen und der Tschechischen Republik eine Reihe eminenter Wissenschaftler und geistiger Exponenten eingeladen, gemeinsam uber Bedingungen europaischer Solidaritat nachzudenken und, ausgehend vom Verfassungsentwurf, mogliche Defekte und Zukunftswege und Moglichkeiten aufzuzeigen. Dieser Band versammelt die zentralen, in Gorlitz diskutierten Texte; weitere Beitrage wurden unter www.kultur.org veroffentlicht."

Negotiations in professional or private life often take an unsatisfactory course due to stress, confrontation with aggressive or unfair behavior, or because of overwhelming situations. Negotiations generally require a thorough preparation, strategy and a sophisticated tactic to make us feel safe in the presentation of our goals and arrive at a mutually satisfactory outcome. Conventional books about negotiations are usually limited to strategies and techniques, but leave out elements of psychological communication and emotional intelligence, which include non-verbal communication and empathy, which in turn are essential for successful negotiation. Therefore, this book on the one hand constitutes the essential techniques and strategies in the context of negotiation, but also considers "soft skills" without which negotiations cannot be successful. This book presents practical examples in dealing with situations such as salary, contract and sales negotiations. In particular on context and time appropriate negotiation techniques; analyzing negotiation partners and their motives; interpret group processes, and how to successfully implement negotiation psychology.

Stratagems - that is what we call war ruses but also ruses in general. They can decide victory or defeat. We are all familiar with well-known war ruses. Just think of the Greek story of the Trojan horse. These days, we think of a "Trojan horse" mostly in connection with criminal computer hacking. We then have to ask: "How does one think up stratagems?" To do so, one must have competency in creative and systemic thinking. This book explains the value and meaning of these ways of thinking for the creation of stratagems. Readers will learn - How to think of the term "stratagem" - What kinds of stratagems one might find (e.g. from antiquity, the "Stratagemata" of Frontin) - What creative and systems thinking is and how it expresses itself in the development of ruses - How one might go about thinking up stratagems This book is meant for everyone who handles social conflict as well as those with an interest in creative and systems thinking.

This book challenges the traditional models of modern economy, business education and management, which are devoted to the concepts of scarcity, competition, growth and yield. It deconstructs the spiral of acceleration in which technological shifts concerning global markets and enterprises produce a dynamic of unbridled disruption, concentration and erosion of human and natural resources. The book analyzes how, in the face of this dynamic, once successful business models increasingly lead to existential jeopardy.The book embeds its argument in the impact of technological change on strategy in general. It subsequently analyzes the degree of rationality in the strategy building process to juxtapose revenue and responsibility as the fundamental principles of diverging strategic concepts. In its central chapters the book explores the benefits of consciousness-driven business models and value-added strategies for the awareness markets of the future and their impact on team excellence and resource handling. It develops an understanding of how corporations can function as ecosystems – fostering the growth and development of the resources they operate on, rather than being based on their exploitation. Understanding this structure of viable future business models is the overall theme of this pioneering book. “This book endeavors to set out yet another paradigm for a viable economics, the paradigm of ethicology. It seeks to replace the concepts of competition, scarcity and growth with strategies and business models based on resource creation, added values cycles, enrichment and symbiosis in line with the awareness economy it describes.” Hunter Lovins,President and Founder of Natural Capitalism Solutions “... a very basic paradigm shift in our future strategies ...” Henner Klein, Chairman Emeritus A.T. Kearney “The book stands right on the tectonic fault line between our old and our new reality. It manages to do both: analyze the shifting paradigms and provoke new thinking.” Dr. Martin R. Stuchtey, Director of the McKinsey Center for Business & Environment “This book is raising the bar. His vision dares to rethink the principles of the liberal and social market economy in a globalized business world.” Prof. Dr. René Schmidpeter, CBS Köln “A book worth reading and reflecting on. Onwards to an economy that works for 100% of humanity.” Michael Pirson,Associate Professor, Director Center for Humanistic Management, Fordham University and Research Fellow, Harvard University „ ... powerful arguments and practical guidance on how companies can become sustainable and live up to the realities of global enterprise ...” Michael Hilti, Hilti AG

Nahezu unbekannt sind der Öffentlichkeit die Lebensweisen jener ArbeiterInnen, die das „schwarze und blaue Gold“ für den Export nach Europa fördern. Sie sind fahrende und fliegende Menschen, die zyklisch für Wochen oder Monate in den Fördergebieten leben und arbeiten, um wieder für eine Weile zu ihren Familien heimzukehren. Das Buch führt kurzweilig von der Wolgaregion in das subarktische Sibirien. Die Autorin begleitet fernpendelnde Menschen über Tausende von Kilometern. Sie erzählt vom Leben in der sogenannten „Russischen Erdgashauptstadt“ Novy Urengoy, das sich zwischen Erinnerungen an die Sowjetunion und staatsnahen sowie neoliberalen Wirtschaftspraktiken abspielt. Diese faszinierende Ethnographie gibt einen kritischen Einblick in die russische Petroleumindustrie.
