Editorial Reviews


“Every business leader or wannabe business leader should read this book. Mangieri and Block’s power thinking strategies are a sure way to reach the top and stay there.” --Stephen M. Yesenosky, president, The Corporate Promotions Group

 “There is a lot of talk in professional literature these days about ‘taking it to the next level.’ This book is different in that it goes beyond talk and instead describes the actions that leaders will need to take if we are going to succeed in tomorrow’s highly competitive business world.” --Robert M. Curran, vice president, E. I. DuPont de Nemours & Co.

 “Many leaders often fail to think in an objective and clear way when they are confronted with problems and organizational challenges. This book provides a rich resource as to how leaders can reach decisions and solve problems more effectively. This book is a must for leaders who want to improve their thinking skills in a systematic and thorough way.”--Anne J. Udall, executive director, Lee Leadership Institute

 “Having directly worked for over a decade with the best-known authors and thinkers of leadership, It thought I had a clear idea as to how leaders solve problems and reach decisions. This book provides more strategies and ideas about these crucial aspects of being a leader—and more importantly, ways to apply this knowledge—than any other book I have read. The strategic advantage outline in Power Thinking should be used by every individual and every organization.” --Paul A. Sanders, CEO, LumaCore

 “This book is outstanding. It will help me and other leaders to become more effective in performing our many and complex responsibilities."--Joseph M. McShane, S.J., president, Fordham University

From the Inside Flap

Most individuals were never formally taught thinking skills and, as a result, are using processes that were developed during childhood to reach decisions and solve problems. Thus, in an era of knowledge explosion, organizational performance accountability, and rapid change caused by technology, leaders and managers are trying to succeed using thinking patterns developed before they were twelve years old.

Power Thinking offers leaders the information they need to evaluate their current thinking proficiencies, determine areas for improvement, and enhance their thinking skills. The book includes the Yale Assessment of Thinking, a standardized assessment measure that enables readers to determine their abilities in the cognitive domains found to be crucial to being an outstanding leader.

The authors present proven strategies that leaders can readily and effectively use to gain increased competency in the performance of their responsibilities as well as to help their organizations succeed. Once these thinking competencies are developed, leaders will have the ability to reach sound decisions more quickly, solve problems more effectively, and think more creatively. They will also be better prepared to identify and strategically confront the issues that are most important to the current and future well-being of their organizations.
