    Lessons for leaders on resolving the ongoing struggle between instinct and the creative mind

    Kings, heads of government, and corporate executives lead thousands of people and manage endless resources, but may not have mastery over themselves. Often leaders know that right action is important, but have little (if any) understanding of what prevents them from acting in accord

      Saw this as one of the best business books of 2010 and can see why. It provides both much theory and practice as to how our inner"executive" can be derailed by our inner "elephant" - both as individuals and leaders - and for me, draws together many concepts that are used in various instruments (Hogan, Herrmann Brain, Myers Briggs), the various readings on the brain as well as teachings from Buddhist and Hindu cultures. It also highlights the value of an external coach who can provide feedback an

      This book just didn't do it for me. It didn't feel original. It seemed more like a lot of psychological mumbo-jumbo than sound leadership advice. Although I loved the concept of the book, the actual material just didn't deliver like I hoped it would.

      Using the analogy of the Executive for the conscious-decision making part of our brain and the Elephant for the instant gratification seeking part, the book tries to help you by asking you to take charge of your lives. You might pick up a couple of interesting things here and there from the book that you could inculcate in your daily life. The book brings a sort of positivity in your otherwise dull life. There is nothing in the book that would blow your mind.

      Usual mix of guruistic and psychology mumbo jumbo: ‘close your eyes. Imagine you have 10 hours to spare. Stop reading this crap and prioritise your life for 10 Mins’

      The content is pretty common sense and is written in a casual and overly-generalized tone. The first section of the book comforted me in that others have similar thoughts as I do that make us distracted and procrastinate on important things. I have mixed-feelings on the second half of the book. Being a simple and generalized book, many of the solutions were intuitive. However, if you spend a lot of time reflecting on the questions it posed, and thinking back to your own personal situations, then

However, if you spend a lot of time reflecting on the questions it posed, and thinking back to your own personal situations, then the book can be of some help. It is less of a case-study type book, but more of a self-help and meditation style book.
