Consider: Harnessing the Power of Reflective Thinking In Your Organization

Author: Daniel Patrick Forrester

Book Site: Consider

Daniel Patrick Forrester has pulled together an intriguing read that is bound to make you feel better about taking the time to stand there and do nothing. Overall, this is a book about NOT rushing in, NOT multi-tasking and giving yourself the permission to stop the merry-go-round and get off for a while. In fact, the more critical the situation, the more imperative it is to take the time to think about what's actually going on, get clear on context, and develop a sense of understanding so that you can respond in the best possible manner.

While technology allows us to act and react more quickly than ever before, we are taking increasingly less time to consider our decisions before we make them. Reflection supplies an arsenal of ideas and solutions to the right problems. Including interviews with leaders such as General David Petraeus, attorney Brooksley Born and global investor Kyle Bass, Forrester shows us that taking time and giving ourselves the mental space for reflection can mean the difference between total success and total failure.
