This book incorporates a refreshing mix of models,theory, and research and cuts to the heart of the change quagmire with succinct information,proven tactics,and practical tools.
Writing a plan is a journey through the mind of one person. Even in partnerships and corporations, usually one person has the vision and energy to take an idea and turn it into a business by writing a business plan. For that reason, I have addressed this book to the business owner as a single individual rather than a husband-and-wife team, group, committee, partnership, or corporation. And you’ll find that the same financial and analytical tools necessary to convince potential lenders and investors that your business idea is sound can also
help you decide whether your idea is the right business for you.
Likewise, the literature on leadership is enormous and expanding apace. A search of the Amazon.com website in the spring of 2003 using the single word ‘leadership’ netted an overwhelming 11,686 results. This testifies, if nothing else, to the cultural significance of this concept at least in the minds of authors, archivists and editors. Notably, however, a search of ‘leadership and development’ only secured 4.8 per cent of the total results. This suggests that the ways in which leadership qualities might be produced carry considerably less popular appeal than the wider leadership mystique.
It is possible for everyone to learn faster, work smarter, and be more fulfilled. Power Up Your Mind translates what we know about how the brain works into useful insights for the workplace.

The second thing they all have in common may be less apparent but is still crucial: Each won his spurs as a leader at General Electric (GE). Nardelli and McNerney were considered possible successors to GE’s legendary boss, Jack Welch. In 2001, when it became clear that Jeff Immelt would succeed Welch, Nardelli (president and CEO of GE Power Systems) and McNerney (president and CEO of GE Aircraft Engines) left to join The Home Depot and 3M, respectively. Bossidy, former chief operating officer of GE Credit (later GE Capital), left to join AlliedSignal, which merged with Honeywell in 1999. Paul headed global operations for GE Medical Systems before he joined Wipro.

I’ve studied successful people for forty years, and though the diversity you find among them is astounding,
I’ve found that they are all alike in one way: how they think! That is the one thing that separates successful
people from unsuccessful ones. And here’s the good news. How successful people think can be learned. If you
change your thinking, you can change your life!
