Unternehmen und Behörden in der Konfliktsituation by Sven Hering

By Sven Hering

Die Umweltökonomie geht in ihren Analysen in der Regel davon aus, dass Unternehmer die gesetzlich fixierten umweltpolitischen Rahmenbedingungen als Restriktion ihrer Handlungsalternativen akzeptieren.

Sven Hering hebt diese Annahme auf und analysiert mit Hilfe der Spieltheorie die dadurch ins Blickfeld rückende Konfliktsituation zwischen Unternehmen und Umweltschutzbehörden beim Umweltnormenvollzug. Er geht folgenden Fragen nach: Ist ein normwidriges Verhalten von Unternehmen in bestimmten Situationen rational? Wenn ja, welche Faktoren müssen wie verändert werden, damit sich die Unternehmer anders entscheiden? Welche Reaktionsinstrumente stehen den Umweltschutzbehörden zur Verfügung? Welche sollten ihnen zur Verfügung stehen und wie können sie sie effizient einsetzen? Auf der foundation einer Sekundäranalyse empirischer Daten zeigt der Autor die aktuelle Vollzugssituation im Umweltschutz auf und entwickelt Empfehlungen für den Gesetzgeber zur Verbesserung der Vollzugsergebnisse.

Der Weg zu Burnout-freien Arbeitswelten by Ruth Tröster

By Ruth Tröster

Produktivität, Leistungsfähigkeit und Lernmotivation sind zentrale Faktoren unserer heutigen Arbeitswelt. Gleichzeitig sind sie auch Stellschrauben unseres Befindens am Arbeitsplatz. Allerdings prägen nach wie vor besonders extrinsische Motivatoren, additionally Anreize von außen, unsere Arbeitswelt und extrinsisch motivierte Absichten setzen unserer Persönlichkeitsentwicklung Grenzen. Wachstum, das an eine Begrenzung stößt, kehrt sich um und kann langfristig zu Burnout führen. Anhand von Beispielen aus der Praxis verdeutlicht die Autorin diesen Zusammenhang. Dem gegenüber steht die intrinsische Motivation, welche von innen heraus angestoßen wird. Ein Leistungswille aus eigenem, innerem Antrieb sorgt für hohe Produktivität, setzt auf Kooperation und schafft Zufriedenheit, wenn die dafür nötigen, individuellen Freiräume gegeben sind.

Wie gelingt es nun, Arbeitsplätze so zu gestalten, dass die intrinsischen gegenüber den extrinsischen Werten überwiegen und damit einem Burnout vorbeugen? Dieses Buch zeigt einen neuen Weg zu einer Burnout-freien Arbeitswelt. Es legt dabei besonderen Fokus auf eine neue Sichtweise – einen Paradigmenwechsel – die nicht das was once, additionally eine bestimmte Qualifikation, in den Mittelpunkt stellt, sondern WER die nötigen Charaktereigenschaften erfüllt. Diese lassen sich aber zunehmend bei Burnout-Betroffenen finden.
