Publisher's Summary

From Harvard Business School professor and co-director of the Harvard Kennedy School's Center for Public Leadership: a guide to making better decisions, noticing important information in the world around you, and improving leadership skills.

Imagine your advantage in negotiations, decision-making, and leadership if you could teach yourself to see, and evaluate, information that others overlook. The Power of Noticing provides the blueprint for accomplishing precisely that. Max Bazerman, an expert in the field of applied behavioral psychology, draws on three decades of research and his experience instructing Harvard Business School MBAs and corporate executives to teach you how to notice and act on information that may not be immediately obvious.

Drawing on a wealth of real-world examples, from the Challenger Space Shuttle disaster to Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme, Bazerman diagnoses what information went ignored in these situations, and why. Using many of the same case studies and thought experiments designed in his executive MBA classes, he challenges listeners to explore their cognitive blind spots, identify any salient details they are programmed to miss, and then take steps to ensure it won’t happen again. While many best-selling business books have explained how susceptible to manipulation our irrational cognitive blind spots make us, Bazerman helps you avoid the habits that lead to poor decisions and ineffective leadership in the first place. His book provides a step-by-step guide to breaking bad habits and spotting the hidden details that will change your decision-making and leadership skills for the better, teaching you to: pay attention to what didn’t happen; acknowledge self-interest; invent the third choice; and realize that what you see is not all there is.

With The Power of Noticing at your side, you can learn how to notice what others miss, make better decisions, and lead more successfully.

    "No magic formula but and interesting book"

    The book mainly talks about why we don't notice with very little of the book telling you how to notice. I'd still recommend the book, but basically the book tell you what not to do to miss something. This is hard, but worth reading and practicing.

    "People suck at noticing"

    Anecdotes of people who did not notice and the incentives that made them act the way they did. Pay attention to incentives.

    "quite poor expected better."

    Narration: would probably have been ok but the changes on acoustics between cuts gets irritating.
    Content: Why use a few words when hundreds will do. found myself fast forwarding on a regular basis.point made move on.
    Not very much how loads of history but light on method.
