For example, introducing too many new members into a team at once is a bad idea. To infuse new blood into a team, one new member every three or so years is enough. Not all of the ideas Heffernan talks about are new: Many productivity gurus have written about the disadvantages of multitasking and being too busy to allot time for thinking. The illustrations—three in this section alone—lend a memorability to these ideas we know but rarely practice.
Creating leaders everywhere is about looking past superstars to accept great ideas irrespective of where they come from. Beyond Measure is a quick read. Heffernan breaks down concepts that are difficult to pin down into actionable steps, and shares so many examples from fields as diverse as business and medicine to crisis control that almost anyone can find in it an echo of their work life.

Edward Hess. Simply put, most entrepreneurial start-ups fail. Those fortunate enough to succeed then face a second, major challenge: how to grow. This book focuses on the key questions an entrepreneur must answer in order to grow a business. Based on extensive research of more than fifty successful growth companies, Grow to Greatness discusses the top ten growth challenges and how to overcome them. Similar ebooks. Margaret Heffernan. Why, after every major accident and blunder, do we look back and say, How could we have been so blind? Why do some people see what others don't?
And how can we change? Drawing on studies by psychologists and neuroscientists, and from interviews with business leaders, whistleblowers, and white collar criminals, distinguished businesswoman and writer Margaret Heffernan examines the phenomenon of willful blindness, exploring the reasons that individuals and groups are blind to impending personal tragedies, corporate collapses, engineering failures-even crimes against humanity. We turn a blind eye in order to feel safe, to avoid conflict, to reduce anxiety, and to protect prestige.
But greater understanding leads to solutions, and Heffernan shows how-by challenging our biases, encouraging debate, discouraging conformity, and not backing away from difficult or complicated problems-we can be more mindful of what's going on around us and be proactive instead of reactive. Eric Ries. Most startups fail. But many of those failures are preventable. The Lean Startup is a new approach being adopted across the globe, changing the way companies are built and new products are launched. This is just as true for one person in a garage or a group of seasoned professionals in a Fortune boardroom.
What they have in common is a mission to penetrate that fog of uncertainty to discover a successful path to a sustainable business. The Lean Startup approach fosters companies that are both more capital efficient and that leverage human creativity more effectively. It enables a company to shift directions with agility, altering plans inch by inch, minute by minute.
Ries provides a scientific approach to creating and managing successful startups in a age when companies need to innovate more than ever. Dan Ariely.

What are our misconceptions about how to value our work? How does your sense of your mortality impact your motivation? Get into the best schools. Land your next big promotion. Dress for success. Run faster. Play tougher. Work harder. Keep score. And whatever you do—make sure you win.
Competition runs through every aspect of our lives today. From the cubicle to the race track, in business and love, religion and science, what matters now is to be the biggest, fastest, meanest, toughest, richest. The upshot of all these contests? As Margaret Heffernan shows in this eye-opening book, competition regularly backfires, producing an explosion of cheating, corruption, inequality, and risk.
The demolition derby of modern life has damaged our ability to work together.
