"Framing his chapters around the questions managers most often ask - what is corporate culture? How can I assess it? How can I change it? - Schein defines in plain terms the ingredients of corporate culture and explains how it influences the way people do their jobs. He gives readers clear guidance for evaluating their organization's current culture and determining whether it continues to be the best fit for its people, goals, and products. He also provides practical advice for effecting culture change in companies of all kinds in a format that anyone can readily understand and follow."--Jacket

20 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 697 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Helping is a fundamental human activity, but it can also be a frustrating one. All too often, to our bewilderment, our sincere offers of help are resented, resisted, or refused - and we often react the same way when people try to help us. Why is it so difficult to provide or accept help? How can we make the whole process easier?" "In this seminal book on the topic, corporate culture and organizational development guru Ed Schein analyzes the social and psychological dynamics common to all types of helping relationships, explains why help is often not helpful, and shows what any would be helpers must do to ensure that their assistance is both welcomed and genuinely useful." "The moment of asking for and offering help is a delicate and complex one, fraught with inequities and ambiguities. Schein helps us navigate that moment so we avoid potential pitfalls, mitigate power imbalances, and establish a solid foundation of trust. He identifies three roles a helper can play, explaining which one is nearly always the best starting point if we are to provide truly effective help. So that readers can determine exactly what kind of help is needed, he describes an inquiry process that puts the helper and the recipient on an equal footing. These dynamics not only apply to all kinds of one-on-one helping in personal and professional relationships, teaching, social work, and medicine but also can be applied to teamwork and to organizational leadership." "Using examples from many types of relationships - doctors and patients, consultants and clients, husbands and wives - Ed Schein offers a concise, definitive analysis of what it takes to establish successful, mutually satisfying helping relationships."--Cover

Humble inquiry : the gentle art of asking instead of telling by Edgar H Schein( Book )

15 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We live, says Ed Schein, in a culture of Tell. Rather than trying to genuinely relate to other people we tell them what we think they need to know or should do based on assumptions we've made about them. But telling makes people feel inferior--it shuts them down. This is particularly true of interactions between superiors and subordinates, and that's where it's particularly problematic. In today's complex, interconnected, rapidly changing world hierarchy means nothing--anybody anywhere could have that vital fact or insight that could mean the difference between success or disaster. A free flow of information is crucial. Humble Inquiry builds the kinds of positive, trusting, balanced relationships that encourage honest and open interactions in both our professional and personal lives. Schein defines Humble Inquiry as "the fine art of drawing someone out, of asking questions to which you do not know the answer, of building a relationship based on curiosity and interest in the other person." In this seminal work he explores the concept of humility, looks at how Humble Inquiry differs from other kinds of inquiry, offers examples of Humble Inquiry in action in many different settings, and shows how to overcome the cultural, organizational and psychological barriers that keep us from practicing it. This is a major new contribution to how we see human dynamics and relationships, presented in a compact, personal, eminently practical way"--

Psychologie et organisations by Edgar H Schein( Book )

Der Gegenstand der Organisationspsychologie ist noch keineswegs end gültig abgesteckt. Mit meiner 1965 erschienenen Erstausgabe wollte ich einerseits dazu beitragen, diesen zu definieren, und zum anderen eine Arbeitshilfe schaffen, die sowohl dem Praktiker wie dem Forscher von Nutzen sein konnte. Mein~ Absicht war, Mitgliedern von Orga nisationen Einblicke in die dynamischen Prozesse von Systemen, denen sie selbst angehören, zu vermitteln. Mit Genugtuung habe ich beobach tet, wie rasch sich Erforschung und Begriffsbildung der Organisations psychologie in den vergangenen sechs Jahren weiterentwickelt haben. Noch befriedigender war die Feststellung, daß Literatur über diesen Teilbereich der Psychologie sogar innerhalb von Organisationen auf Interesse stieß. Also nicht nur Studenten, sondern auch Laien, die sich bemühen, die Dynamik von Organisationen zu begreifen, haben ihre Bedeutung erfaßt. Vor allem die offene Aufnahme durch Studenten wie Laien hat mich in dem Beschluß bestärkt, das gesamte Material einer Revision zu unter ziehen. Wie schon in der ersten Auflage habe ich dabei bewußt und wohlüberlegt nur bestimmte Konzepte herausgegriffen und mich auf einige wenige Forschungsberichte zur Erläuterung dieser Konzepte be schränkt. Viele brauchbare Studien und etliche gerade in jüngerer Zeit entwickelte Theorien mußten auch in dieser überarbeitung ganz weg gelassen werden oder konnten nur am Rande erwähnt werden. Nur widerstrebend habe ich auch auf eine Diskussion der Theorienbildung und Erörterung methodischer Fragen verzichtet. Gerade im Bereich der Methodologie gibt es noch ungelöste Probleme, die in diesem Rahmen 5 bedauerlicherweise nur angedeutet werden können
