The Half Truth High

The Half Truth High

Did you ever wonder why self-improvement strategies dealing with change and success make things seem so reasonable? Could it be that what makes all these mantras and pop books so appealing on a mass scale is the same thing that keeps them from working. They all "make sense." But are all the things that make sense TRUE? Dr. Fleming takes you deep within the mind of a psychologist and leadership consultant, letting you in on the secrets of the half-truth-the clever way we convince ourselves we are changing bad habits, leading a company to profitability, or even rising personally to the highest level of thinking about ultimate reality. Utilizing a questioning process that turns half-truths over to find the denied part of reality in us all, Dr. Fleming paves a way to understanding and change that no simple "7 Tips or Tools" book could possibly provide.

Hard Facts Dangerous Half Truths And Total Nonsense

Hard Facts Dangerous Half Truths And Total Nonsense

The best organizations have the best talent. . . Financial incentives drive company performance. . . Firms must change or die. Popular axioms like these drive business decisions every day. Yet too much common management “wisdom” isn’t wise at all—but, instead, flawed knowledge based on “best practices” that are actually poor, incomplete, or outright obsolete. Worse, legions of managers use this dubious knowledge to make decisions that are hazardous to organizational health. Jeffrey Pfeffer and Robert I. Sutton show how companies can bolster performance and trump the competition through evidence-based management, an approach to decision-making and action that is driven by hard facts rather than half-truths or hype. This book guides managers in using this approach to dismantle six widely held—but ultimately flawed—management beliefs in core areas including leadership, strategy, change, talent, financial incentives, and work-life balance. The authors show managers how to find and apply the best practices for their companies, rather than blindly copy what seems to have worked elsewhere. This practical and candid book challenges leaders to commit to evidence-based management as a way of organizational life—and shows how to finally turn this common sense into common practice.

Truths Half Truths And Little White Lies

'If I'm going to tell the story of a life, my life, then I need to tell it warts and all. If the tale is too saccharine sweet then what can the reader take away from it? What do they learn about you? I've written everything down. The shit, the death, fun, naughtiness, addiction, laughter, laughter, laughter, some tears and lots of love and happiness. That to me is a better reflection of a human's life.' Nick's family life was difficult, blighted by alcoholism, illness and sudden misfortune meaning they lost everything overnight. He left school early and drifted from job to job dogged by his own personal demons. It's something of a miracle that Nick survived and even more that he would achieve such success with his writing, acting and comedy. In Truths, Half Truths and Little White Lies Nick paints a brilliantly funny, moving and brutally candid portrait of childhood, adolescence and eventual success.
