Название: The Leader's Guide to Lateral Thinking Skills: Powerful Problem-Solving Techniques to Ignite Your Team's Potential (Leaders Guide)
Автор: Sloane P.
Quite by chance, I read The Leader's Guide To Lateral Thinking by Paul Sloane over the weekend. What stood out in that book for me is - you won't find anything new if you look hard in the same direction.I thought the examples used in it were quite powerful, since I still remember them. One is the fish bowl example (separating the small fish from the one large fish that eats them with a glass partition) - that the brain becomes complacent after a while and stops questioning. The other one was that of Henry Ford - who fired a senior manager who salted his soup before tasting it. Ooh ! That was apparently because he "prejudged situations" and Ford didn't want someone like that. IMHO, it was very unfair - I might have also probably salted my soup, if I was familiar with the restaurant :-) but then, run the risk of being fired by someone like Ford! There was also plenty of quotes from people that made me stop and think how the world has evolved and living has become more comfortable, just by the sheer brilliance of the human brain!That book put me (back) on a higher frequency and I am all excited about reading books again. And i'd heartily recommend this as a reading for anyone, not just for use in workplace, but also for everyday situations.
