    Each of us enters the workplace not only as a human being, but as a woman or man, Leadership and the Sexes links the actual science of male/female brain differences to every aspect of business. Written by the New York Times best-selling author and gender expert Michael Gurian and acclaimed workplace gender consultant Barbara Annis, this groundbreaking audio weaves brain science and gender studies with real life examples from business leaders to provide a new vision of gender diversity.

    "A very long corporate brochure"
    Overall

    There is about 30 minutes of useful information, which one might get from shorter articles on the subject online. The bulk of the content is the usual corporate lingo with bland statements and outdated management advice. Rest is common sense. There is very little practical information.

    How "Aha!" really happens....When do you get your best ideas? You probably answer "At night" or "In the shower" or "Stuck in traffic". You get a flash of insight. Things come together in your mind. You connect the dots. You say to yourself, "Aha! I see what to do." Brain science now reveals how these flashes of insight happen. It's a special form of intuition. We call it strategic intuition, because it gives you an idea for action - a strategy. This new book by William Duggan is the first full treatment of strategic intuition.

    Ricardo says: "It makes perfect sense, great insights"
    "Fresh and usefull point of view"
    Overall

    One of my favorite books. Although not super practical - does provide a hint at a framework for thinking differently on how to improve strategic thinking and innovation.

    Holiday gatherings can be stressful times for families, and occasionally the conversation around the holiday table can get heated. Difficult Conversations shows you a way out of this dilemma; it teaches you how to handle even the toughest conversations more effectively and with less anxiety.

    Jean-Pierre says: "A must-hear audiobook !"
    "Great tool to have"
    Overall

    You will learn many useful things which will help you either to change the way you start your conversation on touchy subjects or at least understand and analyze why tough conversation are going where they usually go.

  • Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard

    In a compelling, story-driven narrative, the Heaths bring together decades of counterintuitive research in psychology, sociology, and other fields to shed new light on how we can effect transformative change. Switch shows that successful changes follow a pattern, a pattern you can use to make the changes that matter to you, whether your interest is in changing the world or changing your waistline.

    Jeremy says: "Even Better Than Made to Stick"
    "Bringing it all together"
    Overall

    Content: Good. This book helped connect other sources on the subject together. So if you read other books mentioned here - it will help. Good examples and practical advice.

    Audio: Bad. Unbelievably mismatched voice actor with material! It will require you a lot of concentration and rewinding.
