Hal and Sidra Stone are the creators of "Voice Dialogue" process, a therapy that transforms the inner critic from crippling adversary to productive ally.The inner critic. It whispers, whines, and needles us into place. It checks our thoughts, controls our behavior, and inhibits action. It thinks it is protecting us from being disliked, hurt, or abandoned. Instead, the critical inner voice causes shame, anxiety, depression, exhaustion, and low-self-esteem. It acts as a powerful saboteur of our intimate relationships and is a major contributor to drug and alcohol abuse. Through examples and exercises, the Stones show us how to recognize the critic, how to avoid or minimize "critic attacks," and, most important, how the inner critic can become asn intelligent, perceptive, and supportive partner in life.
Dov’eri, la notte in cui cadde il Muro? È una domanda che percorre ancora il cielo sopra Berlino. La ritroviamo nelle parole di scrittori cardine della memoria tedesca come Günter Grass ma anche di autori simbolo del dopo-89 come Ingo Schulze. La ripetono le trame di film ormai diventati di culto come Good bye Lenin! e le mille espressioni artistiche di una città che negli ultimi vent’anni è diventata uno dei maggiori centri della creatività europea. Berlino è ben lontana dall’essere pacificata, la cicatrice del Muro l’attraversa ancora, dopo quella notte di novembre in cui sembrava che i suoi abitanti fossero già diventati ein Volk, un solo popolo. Per questo la ricostruzione brillante e appassionata di quei giorni scritta “a caldo” dagli inviati Rai Lilli Gruber e Paolo Borella oggi sembra una cronaca in presa diretta, che ci riporta immediatamente a quelle atmosfere e a quei retroscena.
E per questo, oltre a riproporne qui le pagine più avvincenti, gli autori ci riaccompagnano a Berlino, vent’anni dopo. C’era una volta il Muro. E quando c’era il Muro, non c’era Berlino. Questo libro ci porta a toccare con mano il laghetto dove trafficavano le spie e i memoriali del passato nazista, il cuore un tempo spezzato di Potsdamer Platz e i luoghi della Ostalgie, l’eco delle voci di politici e cantanti, agenti e fuggiaschi. E poi le testimonianze di berlinesi vecchi e nuovi, e cantieri ancora aperti e strade cambiate per sempre. I volti di una memoria che è parte irrinunciabile del futuro. Oggi che il mondo intero è cambiato, e l’unità della Germania è una certezza nel cuore dell’Europa, è ora di tornare a Berlino, senza astio e senza nostalgie. Per riscoprire lo stesso bisogno di futuro, la stessa voglia di vincere a quel gioco che chiamiamo convivenza.

A counterintuitive approach to fostering greater innovation, collaboration, and engagement Most of us assume our success relies on a network of friends and close contacts.
But innovative thinking requires a steady stream of fresh ideas and new possibilities, which strangers are more likely to introduce. Our survival instincts naturally cause us to look upon strangers with suspicion and distrust, but in The Necessity of Strangers, Alan Gregerman offers the provocative idea that engaging with strangers is an opportunity, not a threat, and that engaging with the right strangers is essential to unlocking our real potential. The Necessity of Strangers reveals how strangers challenge us to think differently about ourselves and the problems we face. Shows how strangers can help us innovate better, get the most out of each other, and achieve genuine collaboration Presents principles for developing a "stranger-centric" mindset to develop new markets and stronger customer relationships, leverage the full potential of partnerships, and become more effective leaders Includes practical guidance and a toolkit for being more open, creating new ideas that matter, finding the right strangers in all walks of life, and tapping the real brilliance in yourself To stay competitive, you and your business need access to more new ideas, insights, and perspectives than ever before. The Necessity of Strangers offers an essential guide to discovering the most exciting opportunities you haven't met yet.
According to Wikipedia: "Napoleon Bonaparte (15 August 1769 - 5 May 1821) later known as Emperor Napoleon I, was a military and political leader of France whose actions shaped European politics in the early 19th century. Born in Corsica and trained as an artillery officer in mainland France, Bonaparte rose to prominence under the First French Republic and led successful campaigns against the First and Second Coalitions arrayed against France. In 1799, he staged a coup d'état and installed himself as First Consul; five years later he crowned himself Emperor of the French. In the first decade of the nineteenth century, he turned the armies of the French Empire against every major European power and dominated continental Europe through a series of military victories-epitomised in battles such as Austerlitz. He maintained France's sphere of influence by the formation of extensive alliances and the appointment of friends and family members to rule other European countries as French client states. The French invasion of Russia in 1812 marked a turning point in Napoleon's fortunes. His Grande Armée was badly damaged in the campaign and never fully recovered. In 1813, the Sixth Coalition defeated his forces at Leipzig; the following year the Coalition invaded France, forced Napoleon to abdicate and exiled him to the island of Elba. than a year later, he escaped Elba and returned to power, but was defeated at the Battle of Waterloo in June 1815. Napoleon spent the last six years of his life under British supervision on the island of Saint Helena. An autopsy concluded he died of stomach cancer, though Sten Forshufvud and other scientists have since conjectured that he waspoisoned with arsenic.
His campaigns are studied at military academies the world over, and he is regarded as one of history's great commanders. While considered a tyrant by his opponents, he is also remembered for the establishment of the Napoleonic code, which laid the administrative and judicial foundations for much of Western Europe."
