The fo...

How you see risk and what you do about it depend on your personality and experiences.  How you make these cost-benefit calculations depend on your culture, your values, the people in the room, and even unexpected things like what you’ve eaten recently, the temperature, the music playing, or the fragrance in the air. Being alert to these often-unconscious influences will help you to seize opportunities and avoid danger.

He also founded the Eastman Kodak Company in Roches...

    Human beings are primates, and primates are political animals. Our brains, therefore, are designed not just to hunt and gather but also to help us get ahead socially, often via deception and self-deception. But while we may be self-interested schemers, we benefit by pretending otherwise.

    The less we know about our own ugly motives, the better - and thus, we don't like to talk, or even think, about the extent of our selfishness....

    The now-classic Metaphors We Live By changed our understanding of metaphor and its role in language and the mind.

    Metaphor, our guest explains, is a fundamental mechanism of mind, one that allows us to use what we know about our physical and social experience to provide an understanding of countless other subjects. Because such metaphors structure our most basic understandings of our experience, they are "metaphors we live by&#...

    Today’s book is an almost anthropological examination of the nature of corporate scandal:

    Why do values go awry?

    What happens when the wrong person gets a big job?

    Why is it so tempting to post false profits instead of telling the truth?

    How distorting is the prospect of stock market riches?

    In retrospect, Enron did not conceal their dubious transactions from the investing public, but Enron’s brass didn’t go out of their way to poi...

    Today’s book presents a different approach to enterprise strategy and leadership. A complementary approach the author calls: pioneering leadership.
