Unterricht erfolgreich gestalten: Ein schmales Buch - Umschlag und Titel machen neugierig. Der Autor hat selber lange Zeit als Lehrer und Schulleiter gearbeitet. Im vorliegenden Werk beschreibt er, wie Unterricht erfolgreich und effizient gestaltet werden kann. Dazu formuliert er vierzehn Thesen, die in einzelnen Kapiteln anhand praktischer Beispiele erläutert sind. Es geht dabei fast ausschliesslich um Haltungen, die von "guten Lehrern" verkörpert werden sollen. Keine Forderungen nach professionellem Fachwissen. Inhaltlich wirken "die 14 Dinge, auf die es wirklich ankommt" überzeugend. Beispielsweise plädiert Whitaker für einen respektvollen Umgang mit den Schüler/-innen oder für eine positive Einstellung im Schulalltag. Leider gibt Whitaker, abgesehen von einigen wenigen Tipps keine Hinweise, wie die erwünschten Verhaltensweisen von Lehrpersonen erworben und geübt werden können. Gelesenes setzt sich nicht von selbst um! Trotzdem empfehle ich das Buch allen Schulleitungs- und Lehrpersonen. Es ist schnell gelesen, kann ermutigen und so die Arbeit im Schulalltag positiv beeinflussen. Katharina Eggenschwiler.

Sind wir nicht alle davon überzeugt, dass wir am besten mit äußeren Anreizen wie Geld und Prestige oder durch „Zuckerbrot und Peitsche" zu motivieren sind? „Alles falsch", sagt Daniel H. Pink in seinem provokanten und zukunftsweisenden Buch. Das Geheimnis unseres persönlichen Erfolges ist das zutiefst menschliche Bedürfnis, unser Leben selbst zu bestimmen, zu lernen, Neues zu erschaffen und damit unsere Lebensqualität und unsere Welt zu verbessern. Daniel H. Pink enthüllt die Widersprüche zwischen dem, was die Wissenschaft weiß, und dem, was die Wirtschaft tut – und wie genau dies jeden Aspekt unseres Lebens beeinflusst. Er demonstriert, dass das Prinzip von Bestrafung und Belohnung exakt der falsche Weg ist, um Menschen für die Herausforderungen von Heute zu motivieren, egal ob in Beruf oder Privatleben. In „Drive" untersucht er die drei Elemente der wirklichen Motivation – Selbstbestimmung, Perfektionierung und Sinnerfüllung – und bietet kluge sowie überraschende Techniken an, um diese in die Tat umzusetzen. Daniel H. Pink stellt uns Menschen vor, die diese neuen Ansätze zur Motivation bereits erfolgreich in ihr Leben integriert haben und uns damit entschlossen einen außergewöhnlichen Weg in die Zukunft zeigen.
