Publisher's Summary

Are you ambitious and want to improve your career trajectory?

You wonder how some managers and leaders can make decisions in a split second?

Or you want to improve your productivity and efficiency to get more done in less time?

Then keep reading….

Scientists have been breaking their heads for ages to discover essential differences between the average Joe and billionaires or great leaders. In the last 50 years, a lot of practical research has been performed, from brain activity scans while people are making decisions to research in selective perception at the Universities of Princeton and Dartmouth. Although every person is unique, successful people use the same thinking models, productivity hacks, and decision-making techniques. All these skills are acquired, learned, and improved during life.

In Thought Models for Leadership, you'll discover:

  • Negotiation principles essential to become successful as a leader 
  • Replicate this foundational thought model used by both Charlie Munger (billionaire business partner of Warren Buffet) and Elon Musk (CEO of Tesla and SpaceX) to create new and original opportunities for your company and yourself in existing situations 
  • What you, as a leader, can learn from this Harvard University test with a gorilla. Miss this, and your leadership capability will never grow to its full potential.
  • Discover seven ways to apply this thinking model, used by the ancient Greeks and Romans and later by Albert Einstein 
  • Learn which thinking model Ray Dalio, now billionaire investor, started applying from a young age onwards. Apply this to become a great leader as well.
  • Ten essential components to boost your leadership career 
  • Seven ways to stop "problem repeater inside your head at night" so you can prevent overthinking the same problem over and over again at the wrong place and at the wrong time 
  • Sixteen thought models to make better and more effective decisions as a leader 
  • Twelve mental models used by Jeff Bezos (founder of Amazon) and other successful business leaders in running their businesses
  • And much, much more.

Maybe you're wondering if these leaders and billionaires were born with special gifts. Scientists discovered the behavior, communication, and thinking patterns are learned and improved during the life of these leaders and millionaires, and they can be modeled without having the IQ of Einstein.

So, if you're ready to improve your leadership skills, scroll up and click "Add to cart".

Excellent Book

If you're like me, you'll just go ahead and listen through the entire thing at once. In a world where the negative occurs by default, programming one's mind with a positive antidote is necessary regularly. Books such as this will help you obtain that needed mental nourishment.

It should be compulsory for all of us!

Great for guardians who need to educate their kids on how to think. Definitions of concepts clear and brief. In some cases, made my claim understanding more exact. As a result, I bought the book and altogether delighted in it. It'll be an asset to come back to on a normal premise. Brilliant and ought to be required learning for each understudy of life.
