From the Publisher

On Behavior is a book in 3 sections that deals with what makes people tick. Section one is my description of types of behavior, section two is personal interviews with real people about behavior and their personal experiences and section three is my observations of behavior as I have seen it.

None of this is new or ground breaking; it's my commentary on human behavior as I've seen it along with a large dose of interviews tossed in.

The world is full of screwed up people, and this book will give you a micro insight of some very revealing true stories.

    How Thinking Like a Kid Can Spur Creativity

    IT’S COMMON FOR ADULTS TO FEEL LIKE we’re drowning in judgment—“You’re not famous enough,” “You’re not smart enough,” “You’re not thin enough.” The weight of these appraisals, from others and from ourselves, can prevent us from looking at the world as a child might, as a place of wonder and new possibilities. This, in turn, keeps us from accessing the state of mind that stands at the root of creativity: playfulness. When a child is engaged in play, she is taking material from her inner reality, or dreamworld, and placing it into what we might call the real world. Very young children don’t thi

    Noncash-Bonus Time: Three Key Strategies

    KNOW YOUR OBJECTIVE. It’s critical to determine how the bonus you’re awarding supports what you and your company want to achieve, says Susan David, a psychologist at Harvard Medical School and the author of Emotional Agility: Get Unstuck, Embrace Change, and Thrive in Work and Life. “If your goal is to motivate, you need to assess what the risks are to your game plan if you give a bonus to recognize outstanding work performance to only one person on the team versus everyone who participated,” she says. “Those who do not receive a bonus may feel demoralized, less motivated, and unfairly treated
