    A stunning new approach to how individuals can not only change their lives for the better in the workplace, but also their lives away from the office, including (but not limited to) finding ways to improve one's working relationship with others, one's overall health, outlook on life, and so on. For example, why is it that 95% of all diet attempts fail? Why do New Year's Resolutions last no more than a few days? Why can't people with good intentions seem to make consistent and positive strides in the way they want to improve their careers, financial fitness, physical fitness, and so on?

    Rick’s boss thinks Rick is both brilliant, and a tyrant. He recently told Rick he is not on the succession plan to become the next CEO because his volatile temper could destroy the company.

Ultimately, he retired early and angry, toggling between resentment and self-recrimination at failing to achieve his final goal.

    We talk about building strong teams as though there’s no upper limit - stronger is always better. But it turns out, you can go too far. It’s possible for a team to be too strong. In fact, one of the primary drags on organizational performance is the natural consequence of managers paying too much - not too little - attention to the strength of their own team.
