School has the potential to be a major source of personal and academic fulfilment. However, the reality is that fear and failure pervade many students' academic lives. Rather than respond to these fears in constructive and courageous ways, many students engage in self-defeating, avoidant and helpless behaviours. This book examines the counterproductive strategies students use in schools today, and suggests successful practices educators can adopt to eliminate fear and failure in the classroom and help students respond to their problematic behaviours in more positive and productive ways. Through building student success, educators build classroom success.

This popular text combines theory, research, and applications to teach college students how to become more self-regulated learners. Study skills are treated as a serious academic course of study. Students learn about human motivation and learning as they improve their study skills. The focus is on relevant information and features designed to help students to identify the components of academic learning that contribute to high achievement, to master and practice effective learning and study strategies, and then to complete self-regulation studies whereby they are taught a process for improving their academic behavior. A framework organized around six components related to academic success (motivation, methods of learning, time management, control of the physical and social environment, and monitoring performance) makes it easy for students to understand what they need to do to become more successful in the classroom. Pedagogical Features include Exercises; Follow-Up Activities; Student Reflections; Chapter-end Reviews ; Key Point; and a Glossary. New in the Fourth Edition: More emphasis on research findings; expanded discussion of motivation ; more emphasis on the impact of students' use of social networking and technology; research about neuroscience in relationship to motivation and learning; new exercises, including web-based activities; Companion Website, including an Instructor's Manual

Nach ihren ersten zwei Wochen als neuer CEO von DecisionTech fragte sich Kathryn Petersen angesichts der dortigen Probleme, ob es wirklich richtig gewesen war, den Job anzunehmen. Sie war eigentlich froh ï¿1⁄2ber die neue Aufgabe gewesen. Doch hatte sie nicht ahnen kï¿1⁄2nnen, dass ihr Team so fï¿1⁄2rchterlich dysfunktional war und die Teammitglieder sie vor eine Herausforderung stellen wï¿1⁄2rden, die sie niemals zuvor so erlebt hatte ... In "Die 5 Dyfunktionen eines Teams" begibt sich Patrick Lencioni in die faszinierende und komplexe Welt von Teams. In seiner Leadership-Fabel folgt der Leser der Geschichte von Kathryn Petersen, die sich mit der ultimativen Fï¿1⁄2hrungskrise konfrontiert sieht: die Einigung eines Teams, das sich in einer solchen Unordnung befindet, dass es den Erfolg und das ï¿1⁄2berleben des gesamten Unternehmens gefï¿1⁄2hrdet. Im Verlauf der Geschichte enthï¿1⁄2llt Lencioni die fï¿1⁄2nf entscheidenden Dysfunktionen, die oft dazu fï¿1⁄2hren, dass Teams scheitern. Er stellt ein Modell und umsetzbare Schritte vor, die zu einem effektiven Team fï¿1⁄2hren und die fï¿1⁄2nf Dysfunktionen beheben. Diese Dysfunktionen sind: - Fehlendes Vertrauen, - Scheu vor Konflikten, - Fehlendes Engagement, - Scheu vor Verantwortung, - Fehlende Ergebnis-Orientierung. Wie in seinen anderen Bï¿1⁄2chern hat Patrick Lencioni eine fesselnde Fabel geschrieben, die eine wichtige Botschaft fï¿1⁄2r alle enthï¿1⁄2lt, die danach streben, auï¿1⁄2ergewï¿1⁄2hnliche Teamleiter und Fï¿1⁄2hrungskrï¿1⁄2fte zu werden.

Bo Pilgrim had no college education, but he did have a big dose of Texas courage and a heavenly calling that led him to start his own business after World War II. Reggie Wallace, who worked with Pilgrim for fifty years, describes it this way: "All we had in the beginning was a two-wheel buggy, a shovel, some burlap sacks, and Bo's big ideas." Today, Pilgrim's Pride is a multi-billion-dollar enterprise that employs more than 40,000 people and processes 30 million chickens a week. In One Pilgrim's Progress, Pilgrim shares the essential values he learned as a boy that are the foundation of his business success.
