Philosophy of mind in the English-speaking world has been dominated by two main ambitions throughout most of the twentieth century – to avoid causal mysteries about the workings of the mind, and to meet scepticism about other minds by providing a reasonable account of what we can know, or justifiably infer, about the mental states of other people.

The word psychology has had several different meanings from ancient to modern times. In these book Frank J. Bruno defined it as thus: Psychology is the science that studies the behavior of organisms.
Leadership in the Twenty-first century means leading under intense conditions; today’s markets and people are different than their counterparts of 20 years ago. Managers and employees are faced with new challenges, have other goals and interests, live in another environment, and they define themselves and their work differently than the generation before them did. Before getting to the topic of leading, I would first like to briefly outline the most important basic social and economic conditions. This can of course be nothing more than a general outline, as, beyond its increasing complexity and acceleration, the Twenty-first century is especially characterized by one trend: change.
After working with hundreds of business owners, I have observed an almost universal truth about business planning: Writing a plan is a journey through the mind of one person. Even in partnerships and corporations, usually one person hasthe 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.
Smith Wigglesworth was installing some plumbing in a large house one day and the lady of the family came in, watched awhile, and then left. Finally, the woman came back into the room and locked the door. She asked Wigglesworth if he would tell her something. She asked, “What in the world is it that causes that wonderful expression on your face? You look as if you are full of joy.” He then told her that at breakfast that morning, his wife had come downstairs and informed him that two of their children were very ill. He said that before they even ate, they went upstairs, laid hands on their children, and they were instantly healed. Wigglesworth was just so happy because he had asked and had received. His joy was full.
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!

According to Bersin & Associates study entitled “High-Impact Leadership Development” (2008), an organizational focus on leadership development results in:
• Becoming 84 percent more effective at raising the quality of the leadership “pipeline;”
• A 73 percent increase in employee retention;
• A 67 percent increase in the ability of the organization’s members to work collaboratively; and,
• A 66 percent improvement in the organization’s results.
The knowledge base is growing (in fact exponentially), information technology does operate faster and requires less and less space, the economy is global and interdependent. Short is not the only one to attest to these notions. In fact, one widely referenced source which highlights these ideas as fact is Thomas Freidman’s (2005) The World is Flat. Pink stated likewise in his 2008 address to the NASSP convention audience: technology and off-shore outsourcing will increasingly continue to replace routine work where there are clear black and white answers and logical sequentially reached solutions. For instance, witness the recent
development and explosive sales of software products such as those to complete one’s taxes or basic legal documents.
