DECIDE TO BE EXCELLENT
Get this book if you want a fresh perspective on Strategic Thinking and/or Strategic Planning.
Why Quitters Win reveals how an elegantly simple 3-part Strategic Behavior framework is already driving excellence for everyone from Fortune 500 executives and middle managers to busy moms, small business owners and church leaders.
Decades of research in social science and business strategy, as well as my own findings from surveying the decisions of hundreds of thousands of working adults reveal that the most successful people, teams, and companies are not those with access to the widest variety of opportunities or the steadiest supply of creative ideas. Surprisingly, the opposite is true. Too many exciting opportunities, good ideas, and top priorities erode our focus, confuse our teams, and keep us swirling around on a plateau of mediocrity.
Why Quitters Win addresses these critical topics with a simple approach that has the power to profoundly change your life…one decision at a time
BEST CAREER BOOK OF 2008. #1 BEST SELLER
Get the book that started it all…when I was just a wee young pup with 28 years of life experience and a whole lot of curiosity.
In his work as research and development director at cutting-edge think tank TalentSmart, where he helps businesses work better and employees think smarter, Nick Tasler realized that the recent discovery by scientists of a potential-seeking gene could have a remarkable impact on how we understand decision making. Those who have this gene—about one quarter of the population—are endowed with impulsive tendencies that can lead to fast and decisive action or to foolish choices. The cautious majority that Tasler calls risk managers can make carefully considered decisions or become hopelessly lost in the fog of details. Now The Impulse Factor offers readers a unique online opportunity to analyze their own decision-making style and harness it to improve their everyday lives. Each book comes with access to a proprietary assessment developed specifically to evaluate impulsivity. With examples from business, psychology, and Tasler’s own research at TalentSmart, the book also vividly illustrates how susceptible we are to the events around us and how our reactions often run contrary to our best interests.
By combining his research with real-world examples of extreme decision making, Tasler teaches readers how to thrive when faced with difficult choices. More than just a book, The Impulse Factor provides a clear understanding of why you make the choices you do—and the tools to make those decisions change your business and your life.
