Worth reading: Don't Stay in Your Own Way! Overcoming Mental Blockades. Dehner & Dehner.

What did Boris Becker already say ages ago? Words to the following effect: Decisive for winning or losing is what happens between the two ears. Success is often produced in the head and this holds not only true for sports. The two authors Renate and Ulrich Dehner have written a book about the stress caused by one’s own “mental cinema“ and how it can be overcome. Everyone is familiar with sentences such as “You can’t do this anyway“, “this can only happens to me“ or even “I am too old / too young / too stupid… for this“.

On the path to success - building on strengths or eliminating weaknesses?

The German saying "Stärken stärken und Schwächen schwächen" (strengthening strengths and weakening weaknesses) is one of the most common bonmots in the personnel development scene. What lies behind this? What is truth – what myth? Particularly the Germans seem to get pleasure from “healing” the weaknesses of others, even if it hurts.

Book recommendation: "David Rock: Your Brain at Work"

Our recommendation for anyone who has always wanted to find out how our brain functions is the book Your Brain at Work by David Rock. If you neglect the rather unspectacular title of the book, the author actually succeeds in illustrating what happens in one of our most important organs while we work. It becomes clear, why there are certain things that we are capable of doing in parallel, and other things, that demand our full concentration.

The art of clear thinking

The Ex-Ceo of various Swissair affiliates, Rolf Dobelli, wrote a wonderful book about 25 fallacies which should better be left to other people. Convincing not only through design and illustration (DIN A6), this booklet offers an abundance of insights why we are always deceived by our own perception. Surely not unknown to the interested reader, but garnished with practical examples and brilliant in its buildup and clearness. A book for everybody who is interested in human beings and their behaviour.
