Editorial Reviews

Review

"Most leadership advice centers on a "rational" leader, the one who learns and applies leadership principles in a logical manner. This book openly challenges this assertion, but does so in a way designed to help leaders create strategic and lasting change." -smallbiztrends.com

"
Leaders and managers could in almost all cases broaden their frame of reference and increase the likelihood of a good decision by adopting one or more of the tools proposed by the author. This is the sort of book which should be consulted frequently." -leadingbusinessbooks.com

"This is a valuable book for all those trying to lead their organizations more effectively. It's based on sound research that is never presented in an off-putting academic way. Rather, it is written in a conversational mode, including a wide range of intriguing and thought-provoking illustrations. It includes a wide array of creative ideas and approaches that can be used in many settings." -
Jean Bartunek, PhD; Professor, Carroll School of Management, Boston College

"Dr Austin has written a highly readable book. He has balanced strong research and academic underpinnings with great stories, along with practical methods for improving in a few key leadership areas."
-Samantha Howland; Chief People Officer, Mobiquity

"[Dr] Austin does an excellent job of laying out the sources - confirmation bias and overconfidence. But the brilliance of this book is the simple tools he offers for avoiding these traps."-
Steven Taylor, PhD; author of You're a Genius

From the Back Cover
