Think Again: The Power to Know What You Don’t Know about Adam Grant

Intelligence is usually viewed as the ability to think and learn, but in a rapidly changing world there are other cognitive skills that could be more important: the ability to rethink and unlearn. In our daily lives too many of us prefer the comfort of belief over the discomfort of doubt. We listen to opinions that make us feel good rather than ideas that make us think. We see differences of opinion as a threat to our ego rather than an opportunity to learn. We surround ourselves with people who agree with our conclusions when we should focus on those who challenge our thought process. Think Again shows that we don’t have to believe or internalize everything we feel. It is an invitation to let go of views that no longer serve us well and to appreciate mental flexibility over stupid persistence. If knowledge is power, it is wisdom to know what we don’t know.

9780062878564Conflict: How Productive Disagreements Lead to Better Results by Ian Leslie

For most people, conflict triggers a fight or flight response. Productive disagreement is a difficult skill that neither evolution nor society has prepared us for. It is a skill we urgently need to acquire. Otherwise, our increasingly vocal disagreements are destined to tear us apart. Productive disagreements are a mindset, perhaps the best one we have. It makes us smarter, more creative, and can even bring us closer together. It is critical to the success of any joint venture, from a marriage to a business to a democracy. Isn’t it time we thought more about how to do it well?

9781982114718Hot Seat: What I learned when I ran a large American company with Amy Wallace, from Jeff Immelt

A reminder of successful leadership in times of crisis, the former General Electric CEO, three times named “World’s Greatest CEO” by Barron’s, shares the hard-won lessons he learned from his post-9/11 experience as head of GE pulled. through the economic destruction of the 2008/09 financial crisis and into an increasingly globalized world. In Hot Seat, Immelt offers a rigorous, open questioning of himself and his tenure, which for the first time lists his proudest moments and biggest mistakes. The most important component of leadership, he writes, is willingness to make decisions. But knowing what to do is a thousand times easier than knowing when to do it. Perseverance, combined with clear communication, can ensure progress, if not perfection, he says. As the business world continues to be rocked by amazing economic upheavals, Hot Seat is a much-needed and unusually raw source of authoritative guidance for crucial leadership in uncertain times.

“Compare the difference between the life of a man who does not read and that of a man who reads. The man who is not in the habit of reading is locked in his immediate world in terms of time and space. His life falls into a set routine; He limits himself to contact and conversation with a few friends and acquaintances and only sees what is happening in his immediate neighborhood. There is no escape from this prison. “
