Le management à l'ancienne fondé sur l'empilement d'échelons hiérarchiques, les normes et le cloisonnement semble aujourd'hui dépassé. Les nouvelles générations appellent de leurs voeux un type de management davantage établi sur le talent de chacun, favorisant à la fois l'autonomie et l'engagement : confiance, authenticité, proximité, complémentarité, plaisir, convivialité... Dans ce renouveau managérial qui se profile, une tendance se dégage nettement : la valorisation de l'intelligence émotionnelle. Pour la révéler et la développer, le prisme du cheval propose sans imposer. Etre confronté quelques minutes à un cheval en liberté peut se changer en une expérience déterminante. Le cheval devient un formidable miroir de nos émotions, en agissant comme un révélateur de notre manière d'être avec les autres. L'équicoaching part de ce constat pour travailler sur la gestion du stress, l'affirmation de soi ou le respect d'autrui. L'équicoaching fournit des clés pour apprendre à créer du lien ou à améliorer sa communication non verbale ; il permet d'explorer les pistes d'un management collaboratif, ouvert et humain.
This revised and updated version of Reiner Klimke's classic book on cavalletti work now has an extended section on gymnastic jumping by the author's daughter, Ingrid Klimke. First published more than 30 years ago, the original information on schooling horses over cavalletti is still valid today but the book also encompasses the changing face and requirements of the modern sport horse.
"It makes better economic sense to do business ecologically " So says Emmanuel Druon, the successful businessman and 'green' visionary. For the last 20 years, Druon has been practising what he preaches as CEO of the French envelope manufacturer Pocheco. In that time he and his staff have developed the idea of 'ecolonomy' - an approach to business that is based on strict environmental and ethical principles and which is sustainable and commercially profitable. In other words, it makes both economic sense and ecological sense. The three principles that underpin every decision made in the business are that it must: . minimise any damage the business causes to the environment and any pollution it causes . minimise any harm the business could cause to staff (including stress and disruption to family life) . increase productivity. In this radically inspiring little book, Druon tells the story of Pocheco, outlines the key decisions his team has taken and the effect they've had. He recalls many of the problems they faced and the astonishing solutions they found. The book shows how any business can rethink its buildings, its products and services, transport, suppliers, sales, relations with the community, employment practices... and revolutionise its whole business practice. For readers in any organisation of any size looking to make a difference, this is a good, practical and hopeful place to start."
For centuries a bastion of tradition and the jewel in the crown of French viticulture, Bordeaux has in recent years become dogged by controversy, particularly regarding the 2012 classification of the wines of St.-milion, the most prestigious appellation of Bordeaux's right bank. St.-milion is an area increasingly dominated by big international investors, especially from China, who are keen to speculate on the area's wines and land, some of whose value has increased tenfold in the last decade alone. In the controversial 2012 classification, certain chteaux were promoted to a more prestigious class because of insider deals that altered the scoring system for the classification of wines into premier crus and grand crus. This system now takes into account the facilities of each chteau's tasting room, the size of its warehouse, and even the extent of its parking lot. The quality of the wine counts for just 30% of the total score for the wines of the top ranking, those deemed premier grand cru class A. In Vino Business, Saporta shows how back-room deals with wine distributors, multinational investors like the luxury company LVMH, and even wine critics, have fundamentally changed this ancient business. Saporta also investigates issues of wine labelling and the use of pesticides, and draws comparisons to Champagne, Burgundy and the rest of the wine world. Based on two years of research and reporting, Vino Business draws back the curtain on the secret world of Bordeaux, a land ever more in thrall to the grapes of wealth.
Free to Make
Dale Dougherty, creator of MAKE: magazine and the Maker Faire, provides a guided tour of the international phenomenon known as the Maker Movement, a social revolution that is changing what gets made, how it’s made, where it’s made, and who makes it. Free to Make is a call to join what Dougherty calls the “renaissance of making,” an invitation to see ourselves as creators and shapers of the world around us. As the internet thrives and world-changing technologies—like 3D printers and tiny microcontrollers—become increasingly affordable, people around the world are moving away from the passivity of one-size-fits-all consumption and command-and-control models of education and business. Free to Make explores how making revives abandoned and neglected urban areas, reinvigorates community spaces like libraries and museums, and even impacts our personal and social development—fostering a mindset that is engaged, playful, and resourceful. Free to Make asks us to imagine a world where making is an everyday occurrence in our schools, workplaces, and local communities, grounding us in the physical world and empowering us to solve the challenges we face.
The Tao of Equus
Do horses make choices? How do they seem to know what people are thinking and feeling? Are horses spiritual beings with a destiny all their own? If so, how is this destiny connected with humanity's future? How does the equine mind compare with the human mind? What do horses have to teach people? And why are women so attracted to horses? These are some of the questions writer and equine therapist Linda Kohanov explores in her extraordinary book The Tao of Equus. In it she intertwines the story of the spiritual awakening she experienced with her black mare Rasa with compelling neurological research, cultural history, mythology, and first-hand anecdotes from years of teaching and facilitating equine therapy. She delves into the mental and spiritual processes behind the magical connections people, and women in particular, often experience with horses. She skillfully describes the subtle behavioral nuances horses express and perceive — what she calls the "wisdom of the prey" — as well as a feminine wisdom found in her powerful interactions with horses, bringing to the page subtleties that women riders have intuited for centuries. Blending her extraordinary experience — what some would consider paranormal — with a wide-ranging survey of the phenomena of horse-human communication, Kohanov delivers a ground-breaking work sure to interest both longtime riders and readers interested in the leading edge of animal perception and animal-human communication.
A useful current overview for designers, consultants, agencies, and their customers of modern fonts, independent foundries, and innovative type design. In the past, there were only a few specialists worldwide who worked intensively with typography.

Simultaneously, more and more of these designers are founding type foundries to sell their fonts themselves. Supply and demand in this area have been growing considerably for years.
