If you believe that dieting down to your "ideal" weight will prolong your life; that reliving childhood trauma can undo adult personality problems; that alcoholics have addictive personalities, or that psychoanalysis helps cure anxiety, then get ready for a shock. In the climate of self-improvement that has reigned for the last twenty years, misinformation about treatments for everything from alcohol abuse to sexual dysfunction has flourished. Those of us trying to change these conditions are often frustrated by failure, mixed success, or success followed by a relapse. But have you ever asked yourself: can my condition really be changed? And if so, am I going about it in the most effective way? Grounding his conclusions in the most recent and most authoritative scientific studies, Seligman pinpoints the techniques and therapies that work best for each condition, explains why they work, and discusses how you can use them to change your life. Inside, you'll discover: the four natural healing factors for recovering from alcoholism; the vital difference between overeating and being overweight, and why dieters always gain back the pounds they "lost"; the four therapies that work for depression, and how you can "dispute" your way to optimistic thinking; the pros and cons of anger, and the steps to take to understand it and much more!

How do you create your own definition of success—and reach your unique potential? Building a fulfilling life and career can be a daunting challenge. It takes courage and hard work. Too often, we charge down a path leading to “success” as defined by those around us—and ultimately, are left feeling dissatisfied. Each of us is unique and brings distinctive skills and qualities to any situation. So why is it that most of us fail to spend sufficient time learning to understand ourselves and creating our own definition of success? The truth is, it can seem so natural and so much easier to just do what everyone else is doing—for now—leaving it for later to develop our best selves and figure out our own unique path. Is there a road map that will enable you to defy conventional wisdom, resist peer pressure, and carve out a path that fits your unique skills and passions? Harvard Business School’s Robert Steven Kaplan, leadership expert and author of the highly successful book What to Ask the Person in the Mirror, regularly advises executives and students on how to tackle these questions. In this indispensable new book, Kaplan shares a specific and actionable approach to defining your own success and reaching your potential. Drawing on his years of experience, Kaplan proposes an integrated plan for identifying and achieving your goals. He outlines specific steps and exercises to help you understand yourself more deeply, take control of your career, and build your capabilities in a way that fits your passions and aspirations. Are you doing what you’re really meant to do? If you’re ready to face this question, this book can help you change your life.

Change is normal. It is not to be avoided, ignored, or criticized. Change simply is. And it is overtaking you and your world with ever-increasing speed. You can grasp the changes in our culture and the changes in our technology and use them as a guide to make personal and interpersonal modifications. Who you were yesterday and what you did yesterday don't have to define who you are today and what you do today. You can change yourself. You can alter your routines, your emotions, and your personality. By discovering which facets of your being are eager for alteration, you can make personal reforms and change the course of history. Lest you think that all change is good, however, you are wise to beware of transformations that damage and the portions of changes that harm. Personal modifications are risky and dangerous unless you are able to locate and incorporate only the positive ones. You will change and your world will change. The decision for you is whether you will accept it and champion personal modifications, or whether you will be overwhelmed and watch the world speed past.

Due to the economic crisis, organizations are accelerating the dramatic changes they're making in the way they run their businesses. Employees, faced with these rapid and often undesirable changes, need help — and so do the organizations they work for. If change is going to be a constant in people’s lives and the number and type of changes are going to happen faster, it is imperative that people develop the ability to live in this constantly changing world without feeling like victims, but rather like partners in the changes they face. Change Better is about how to develop the critical skills and tools necessary to cope with change at work and in one's personal life. These skills and the tools that go with them help people gain control over the changes in their lives. Jeanenne LaMarsh shows the ways in which readers can help themselves to change and the ways in which they will be able to accept, deal with, and maximize change with the greatest speed and least pain.

It's Not the How or the What but the Who

Succeed by Surrounding Yourself with the Best

Succeed by mastering the art of the who Why surround yourself with the best? Because it matters—in all aspects of life. In fact, in professional environments, getting people right—what global leadership authority Claudio Fernández-Aráoz calls “the art of great ‘who’ decisions”—marks the difference between success and failure. To thrive, you need to identify those with the highest potential, get them in your corner and on your team, and help them grow. Yet surprisingly very few of us are able to meet that challenge. This series of short and engaging essays outlines the obstacles to great “who” decisions and offers solutions to address them in a systematic way. Drawing from several decades of experience in global executive search and talent development, as well as the latest management and psychology research, Fernández-Aráoz offers wisdom and practical advice to improve the choices we make about employees and mentors, business partners and friends, top corporate leaders and even elected officials. The personal stories and cutting-edge studies described in the book will help you understand both your own failings and the external forces commonly at play in staffing decisions. The author shares concrete recommendations on how to select the best people, bring out their strengths, foster collective greatness in the groups you’ve assembled, and create not only better organizations but also a better society. Starting with the cases of Amazon pioneer Jeff Bezos and Brazilian tycoon Roger Agnelli and continuing with individual and corporate examples from around the world, Fernández-Aráoz paints a vivid picture of what great “who” decisions look like and presents a fresh and commanding argument about why they matter more than ever today.

¿Por qué es tan difícil lograr cambios duraderos en nuestros trabajos, nuestrascomunidades y nuestras propias vidas? El obstáculo principal es un conflicto intrínsico en el cerebro, nos dicen Chip y Dan Heath, dos reconocidos especialistas en comportamiento organizacional. Los psicólogos han descubierto que la mente está gobernada por dos sistemas diferentes —la mente racional y la mente emocional— que compiten por el control. La mente racional quiere un cuerpo perfecto; la mente emocional quiere comerse esa galleta. La mente racional quiere cambiar el trabajo; la mente emocional ama la comodidad y la rutina. Esta tensión puede causar que muchos esfuerzos por cambiar fracasen, pero si se superan, el cambio puede llegar rápidamente. En Switch, los hermanos Heath muestran cómo personas normales y corrientes han unido estas dos mentes, logrando espectaculares resultados: · La directora quien ayudó a Target, a pesar de ser una compañía minorista regional que facturaba tres billones de dólares, a convertirise en un gigante de más de 63 billones dólares. · La directora de servicios clínicos que, junto con su equipo de enfermeras, logró reducir drásticamente los errores en la administración de medicamentos en su hospital. · El director de atención al cliente que transformó a su compañía de una que ignoraba totalmente el servicio al cliente a ser una compañía definida por él. En este convincente relato, los Heath reúnen décadas de investigación en los campos de psicología, sociología y negocios entre muchos otros, para explicar por qué cambiar es tan difícil y dar a conocer nuevas maneras de lograr cambios duraderos. Switch muestra que los cambios exitosos siguen un modelo, un modelo que puedes utilizar para lograr los cambios que tú quieras, tanto si tu interés se centra en cambiar el mundo como en cambiar tu cintura.
