    Instead of being trained to fight, the few soldiers each year selected for Talpiot are taught how to think. In order to join this unit they have to commit to being in the army for 10 years, rather than the three years a normal soldier serves. Talpiots are taught advanced level physics, math, and computer science as they train with soldiers from every other branch of the IDF. The result: young men and women become research and development machines.

Just as often, a company's staff has insight and information that never make their way to the top. In short, the difference between a good company and a great one may lie in its ability to communicate, both internally and externally. In Communicate or Die, Dr. Zweifel shows you how to achieve breakthrough performance simply by changing the way you speak and listen.
