Rated 5 out of 5 by from Required reading for leaders who want to make an impact This is one of those books I borrowed from the library and now want to buy because I really want to implement his approach into the way that I interact as a leader and a coach. David Rock argues very persuasively that we will much more effectively impact the performance of others by improving the way that their brains process information than by telling them the solution. His approach reflects state of the art understanding in the way that our brains are hardwired to approach problems and the strategies that are needed if we are to alter that hardwiring. Anyone who is suspicious that telling others our solutions to their problems is suboptimal will enjoy and profit from a careful consideration of David Rock's insights.
