The Winning Factor: Inspire Gold-Medal Performance in Your Employees by Peter Jensen

The best Olympic coaches inspire, focus, and drive their athletes past mental and physical discomfort, fierce and unwavering competition, and a constantly ticking clock, enabling them to reach heights they may never have thought themselves capable of. Similarly, great managers draw out exceptional performance from their people. In either arena, the key to success lies in igniting a personal desire to push past barriers, never give up, and continually soar above and beyond the expected.

In The Winning Factor, Jensen shows you how to translate the best practices of world-class Olympic coaches into the everyday business realm.

Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman

In the highly anticipated Thinking, Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman takes us on a groundbreaking tour of the mind and explains the two systems that drive the way we think. System 1 is fast, intuitive, and emotional; System 2 is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. Kahneman exposes the extraordinary capabilities -- and also the faults and biases -- of fast thinking, and reveals the pervasive influence of intuitive impressions on our thoughts and behavior.

The impact of loss aversion and overconfidence on corporate strategies, the difficulties of predicting what will make us happy in the future, the challenges of properly framing risks at work and at home, the profound effect of cognitive biases on everything from playing the stock market to planning the next vacation -- each of these can be understood only by knowing how the two systems work together to shape our judgments and decisions.
