Download Change - Raum für Veränderung: Sich und andere verändern. by Martina Schmidt-Tanger PDF

By Martina Schmidt-Tanger

In jedem Veränderungsprozess spielen konstruktive Kommunikation und psychologische Veränderungsintelligenz eine wesentliche Rolle. Scheitern oder Gelingen von Veränderungen hängen demnach nicht so sehr von betriebswirtschaftlichen oder technisch ausgefeilten instruments, Formaten und Vorgehensmodellen ab, sondern vielmehr von der psychologischen Kompetenz der für den Prozess verantwortlichen Menschen. Veränderungen verunsichern und rufen möglicherweise Widerstände hervor. Deshalb stellt sich die Frage, ob die Verantwortlichen den Mut und die Durchsetzungskraft haben, bei Mitarbeitern oder Top-Managern die notwendige Beteiligung und unerlässliche Beiträge einzufordern. Und immer wieder wird sich in der Praxis zeigen: Wahrnehmungsgenauigkeit, Verständis für grundlegende psychologische Mechanismen, konstruktive Kommunikation und ein Quentchen aura generieren hier größere Einfluss- und Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten, als ein betriebswirtschaftlich sauberes device es jemals könnte.

Download Tagtraumhaftes Heldentum: Psychoanalytische Lesarten der by Andreas Galling-Stiehler PDF

By Andreas Galling-Stiehler

Andreas Galling-Stiehler untersucht das Phänomen, dass Skandale um Politiker und Top-Manager zunehmend als Folge der Personalisierung durch Public kin, Public Affairs und andere Formen der Auftragskommunikation sowie ihrer Rezeption durch die Medien erscheinen. Aus der Perspektive einer psychoanalytischen Hermeneutik entwickelt er ein neues Verständnis dieser shape von Auftragskommunikation auf der Grundlage des Menschenbildes von Sigmund Freud. Eine zentrale Rolle spielt dabei die Figur des Helden im Tagtraum und Massentagtraum bei Freud und seinen Nachfolgern. Der aus der Erzähltheorie und Philosophie entwickelte Begriff der produktiven Fiktionen liefert hierbei die Grundlage dafür, Auftragskommunikation und ihre strategische Ausrichtung tiefenhermeneutisch zu deuten und den politischen Skandal um einen Ex-Präsidenten beispielhaft zu interpretieren.
