Illuminate: Harnessing the Positive Power of Negative Thinking | [David M. Corbin]

Illuminate: Harnessing the Positive Power of Negative Thinking

Illuminate argues that we can't create positive work environments without accepting the existence of the negative. Though "positive thinking" has its place in the work world, we can't ignore the negative, whether it be in the form of challenges, problems, limitations, or other negative business realities. In order to foster healthy, functional business, we have to create a culture that allows for open expression and the sharing of ideas-especially when those ideas are negative in nature.

Publisher's Summary

Learn to create a positive work environment by accentuating the positive and illuminating the negative.

Illuminate argues that we can't create positive work environments without accepting the existence of the negative. Though "positive thinking" has its place in the work world, we can't ignore the negative, whether it be in the form of challenges, problems, limitations, or other negative business realities. In order to foster healthy, functional business, we have to create a culture that allows for open expression and the sharing of ideas-especially when those ideas are negative in nature. The key is that negative situations and conditions should be introduced and dealt with in a strictly positive light. The result is an organization able to look at itself honestly and stay alert to possible threats. A unique kind of business book, Illuminate is written in the style of an allegorical fable that teaches you a three-step process for confronting, examining, and fixing any problem in the office.

    "It makes sense"

    I've been getting into all this stuff since a friend introduced me to the secret years ago. I liked the concept, but I wasn't sold, it was all a bit 'hocus pocus' to me. I then did more research on the law of attraction and the power of positive thinking and it started to make logical sense....

    When I read the title of this book I was more curious than anything. However, the books message is right.... You can't just think positively about everything and when bad things happen go 'nevermind, something good will come out of it' .... It shows you that you can't ingnore your problems, in fact you should look at them more closely and do something about them.....

    It reminds me of the saying 'The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and expecting different results'

    Earlier in the year I wrote down the top 5 things that cause me the biggest amount of stress in my business and my life - and focused on what to do about it..... The result was basically creating a much more positive and stable working environment and personal life.

    Listening this book made me know I am on the right track....

    The story that is told makes you understand it pretty good too.
