Publisher's Summary

Have you ever thought about the fact that a craftsman has more and better tools to solve challenges on the job than the leader of a business or organization does? Leadership tools” are usually defined as computers, spreadsheets, data, and even experience, but in reality, leaders need thinking tools that are hard to come by, so they find themselves hunting and pecking for answers in books, at seminars, through on-the-job training programs, from mentors, and at business schools, and still, they’re left with gaps. Surely, most leaders are good at what they do, but the daily challenges of their jobs - like accelerating growth, increasing productivity, driving innovation, doing more with less, and balancing work with life - don’t come with some sort of leadership toolkit...until now.
In Paid to Think, international consultant David Goldsmith presents his groundbreaking approach to leadership and management based on research revealing the 12 specific activities that all leaders perform on a daily basis, and he provides you with each activity’s accompanying tools and instructions proven to boost your performance and that of your entire organization.
Take the uncertainty out of everyday leading, convert ideas to realities, and maximize your intellectual value. Learn how decision makers at some of the world’s most successful organizations have already used Paid to Think’s universal and easily transferable tools - regardless of their industries, sectors, geographic locations, or management levels - as their greatest advantages in achieving more, earning more, and living more.

The bleeding edge of incrementalism

Listeners will be hard-pressed to find any pearls of wisdom amongst the cotton-wool dullness of rehashed ideas, lame examples, laughable acronyms and obsessive, maniacally dull procedures that stuff this book to bursting point.
