    Why are some people - Tiger Woods, Warren Buffett, Yo-Yo Ma - so incredibly accomplished at what they do, while millions of others in those same fields never become very good? Why are some people so extraordinarily creative and innovative? Why can some continue to perform great at ages when conventional wisdom would deem it impossible? Those are the questions Geoff Colvin set out to answer in Talent is Overrated: What Really Separates World-Class Performers From Everybody Else.

    Irrational behavior is a part of human nature, but as MIT professor Dan Ariely has discovered in 20 years of researching behavioral economics, people tend to behave irrationally in a predictable fashion. Drawing on psychology and economics, behavioral economics can show us why cautious people make poor decisions about sex when aroused, why patients get greater relief from a more expensive drug over its cheaper counterpart and why honest people may steal office supplies or communal food, but not money.

    Extasis is an ancient Greek word that refers to non-ordinary states of consciousness. While not all methods of achieving extasis are work friendly, having access to higher thought processes to solve problems creatively is a skill any employer would be happy to encourage. Steven Kotler and Jamie Wheal, authors of the new book Stealing Fire, are here to talk about how to tap into these resources and also why so many CEOs keep going to Burning Man.

    How can you tell if you're one of those bad bosses? It's hard to self-evaluate; according to a Zogby study 35% of workers reported having a boss who bullied them but only 0.5% of bosses said they ever bullied anyone. Obviously there is a disconnect somewhere. Robert Sutton, in his new audiobook, Good Boss, Bad Boss, gives some tips on how to look inward and figure out if you're a good boss or a bad boss.

Today on Edgewise, Stephen joins us to give examples of companies doing it right and to talk more about his book Jobs to Be Done, published by AMACOM.
