Es gibt eine Vielzahl von Ratgebern, die Klettertechniken beschreiben, Tipps geben und die besten Übungen zeigen. Dennoch machen 9 von 10 Kletterern die gleichen Fehler und halten sich dadurch selbst von ihrem eigenen Fortschritt ab. Dabei handelt es sich immer um dieselben Probleme: Motivationsmangel, schlechtes Zeitmanagement und die Unfähigkeit, die eigenen technischen und taktischen Fehler zu analysieren und zu korrigieren. Oft wird zum Beispiel übermäßiges Krafttraining betrieben, während leistungshemmende Faktoren wie die Sturzangst ignoriert werden. Dieses Buch behandelt die gängigsten Fehler beim Klettern und präsentiert Methoden, die nicht nur zur Verbesserung der Klettertechnik beitragen, sondern dem Kletterer auch helfen, am Felsen souveräne Entscheidungen zu treffen und sich auf das Wichtigste zu konzentrieren. Dave MacLeod hat seine 16-jährige Erfahrung als Kletterer auf Weltklasseniveau, Sportwissenschaftler und renommierter Trainer in diesen Ratgeber gesteckt, der jedem Kletterer helfen wird, über sich hinauszuwachsen. »Dave MacLeod zeigt eine erfrischend andere Betrachtungsweise des Trainings und Kletteralltags. Profitieren kann davon jeder – egal ob Anfänger oder Profi –, der gewillt ist, Einbahnstraßen zu verlassen und an seinen Schwächen zu arbeiten.« Dr. med. Volker Schöffl, Sportorthopädie Klinikum Bamberg »Wer die Grundlagen hat und wirklich durchstarten will, für den gibt es keine Alternative auf dem Buchmarkt. Absolut empfehlenswert – besonders für ambitionierte Kletterer.« kletterblog.info »Definitiv ein Buch, das aus dem Standardschema fällt – das lohnt sich!« bergfreunde.de »Die Fehler, die Dave MacLeod beschreibt, mögen simpel klingen. Doch wer es schafft, sie zu vermeiden, wird ein völlig neues Leistungsniveau erreichen – unabhängig vom Schwierigkeitsgrad. Äußerst lesenswert!« topoguide.de

This is a comprehensive, full-colour manual providing a complete reference for climbers of every level and discipline. It covers all the skills, safety issues and equipment necessary for the key climbing disciplines: mountains, bouldering and climbing walls, summer climbing, winter climbing, big wall and expedition climbing. This exciting book is extensively illustrated throughout, with practical diagrams as well as inspirational and instructive photographs covering everything from the basic saftey, equipment and techniques to advanced-level mountaineering on some of the world's toughest ascents. The basic skills includes fundamental information on the necessary technical equipment, from harness, rock boots and ropes to slings, karabiners and belay devices. There is a detailed section on different types of knots with clear diagrams to exemplify each. The technical skills section gives comprehensive information on abseiling with diagrams and photographs, plus various emergency procedures that all climbers and mountaineers should know. The natural ability to climb is in all of us, it is getting it out on to the surface and refining it into a useful skill that is the trick. Pete Hill explains how to move on rock with the various handholds, footholds and specific climbing techniques, he shows the attractions of bouldering, and the importance of chalk as part of a boulderer's arsenal, and finally Pete discusses the various types of climbing walls. The summer section of the book details everything you need to know about traditional climbing, considered by many as the purest form of the sport, as well as sport climbing, and Via Ferratas which are well suited for families new to climbing. The Winter section covers avalanches, ice climbing and snow shelters, as well as step kicking, step cutting and crampon techniques. For the more advanced climbers and mountaineers, the Alpine Climbing, Big wall climbing and expedition sections of the book will provide you with ideas, equipment information, techniques, advice on how to overcome any problems and scenarios to get your adrenaline racing. The Appendices provides essential and useful information on the various climbing grades worldwide, as well as factors and forces. It is one of very few books on the market that is so comprehensive, internationally relevant and covers so many different types of climbing. It is written by Pete Hill (MIC, FRGS), an experienced and highly-regarded author and climbing instructor. Pete is author of the bestselling 'Mountain Skills Training Handbook' and 'The International Handbook of Technical Mountaineering'. He has led mountaineering expeditions to the Indian and Nepalese Himalaya, and was leader of an international expedition to Kashmir which made the first ascents of three previously unclimbed peaks.

If you are new to climbing, you will find games which introduce some essential skills (such as 'crimping' a hold - Chapter 10). If you are an old hand, you will find some great games to help add variety to your weekly club sessions (have you tried 'The Octopus'? - Chapter 6). Playing some of these games can become addictive as your friends and rivals find new ways to play. The overview of skills used in each game will help you turn play into progress. Each chapter deals with a fundamental climbing technique. Some chapters focus on a particular aspect of a climbing session, e.g. the use of foot or handholds, traversing or roped climbing. You can pick and choose activities from each chapter to suit your session and goals. Each chapter begins with a brief introduction, followed by a list of all the activities within that section along with their learning goals. The games are listed in a random order. Many of the games develop more than one aspect of climbing. To help you make the most of them, icons appear beside each title to give you information about the possible ways they can be used at a glance.

Die drei Symptome eines miserablen Jobs

eine Fabel für Manager (und ihre Mitarbeiter)

Author: Patrick Lencioni

Publisher: John Wiley & Sons

ISBN: 9783527503322

Category: Arbeitszufriedenheit / Betriebsklima / Arbeitspsychologie

Page: 235

View: 5658

Egal ob Tellerwäscher, Investmentbanker oder leitender Angestellte, jede Arbeit kann unglücklich machen. Auch wenn die Karriere noch so gut geplant und den eigenen Interessen und Fähigkeiten entsprechend gewählt wurde, quälen sich viele Menschen jeden Morgen zur Arbeit um abends noch frustrierter nach Hause zu kommen. Bestseller Autor und Business-Guru Patrick Lencioni erzählt die unvergessliche Geschichte Brian Baileys, eines pensionierten Vorstandsvorsitzenden auf der Suche nach dem Sinn in seiner Arbeit und seinem Leben. -------- Als alle Mitarbeiter Platz genommen hatten, begann Brian Bailey. Er entschied sich, direkt auf den Punkt zu kommen, der ihm unter den Nägeln brannte: "Handzeichen bitte. Wer von Ihnen mag seinen Job?" Keine Reaktion. Die Mitarbeiter sahen ihn an, als hätte er russisch mit ihnen geredet. "Also gut", Brian grinste. "Dann muss ich wohl deutlicher werden. Okay, wie wär's damit: Wer findet die Aussicht, zur Arbeit zu gehen, schön? Wer hat gute Laune, wenn er hier ankommt?" Brian hätte genauso gut fragen können, ob sie gern ausgepeitscht werden wollten. Keine Hand ging hoch, der eine oder die andere lachte laut. -------- Auf einer ungewöhnlichen Reise, die ihn vom Vorstandszimmer eines angesehenen Unternehmens zu den Skipisten am Lake Tahoe und schließlich zur Bestellannahme einer Fastfood Kette führt, entlarvt Brian die drei Symptome, die jede Arbeit zu einer miserablen Angelegenheit machen können (Nichtmessbarkeit, Anonymität und Irrelevanz) und bietet Managern und Angestellten eine Lösung um sie einzudämmen. So versucht er Investmentbanker davon zu überzeugen, dass Arbeitszufriedenheit wichtig ist oder er motiviert den Pizzalieferanten freundlicher zu seinen Kunden zu sein. Sowohl für den Manager, der versucht Wettbewerbsvorteile zu schaffen und seine Angestellten zu motivieren, als auch für den Mitarbeiter, der nach persönlicher Erfüllung in seiner Arbeit sucht, bietet das Buch unmittelbare Linderung - und Hoffnung.

Die Besteigung des Rum Doodle

Page: 224

View: 6617

»Die Besteigung des Rum Doodle« ist eine grandiose Bergsteigersatire aus den 50er Jahren, die niemals auf Deutsch erschienen ist. Das Buch genießt Kultstatus in Alpinistenkreisen und führte sogar dazu, dass ein ganzer Berg in der Antarktis »Rum Doodle« getauft wurde. Erzählt wird die abenteuerliche Geschichte einer Expedition, bei der so gut wie alles schief geht. Der Expeditionsleiter, ein ehrgeiziger und nicht zu beirrender Herr, ist mit der Zusammenstellung eines geeigneten Teams beauftragt. Er rekrutiert sieben sehr britische Gentlemen. Doch bald zeigt sich, dass keiner von ihnen seiner Aufgabe gewachsen ist. Der Navigator findet trotz Einsatz eines Kompasses nicht zum Ort der Vorbesprechung in London. Der Arzt ist ständig krank. Der Hauptkletterer leidet an Antriebslosigkeit. Die Qualitäten des Kochs spotten jeder Beschreibung. Der Übersetzer versteht die Sprache der Einheimischen nicht, und es werden 30 000 statt 3 000 Träger engagiert. Ein Missgeschick jagt das nächste und am Ende, na klar, haben sie den falschen Berg bestiegen.
