HostageAtTheTable.jpg

Someone gave me this book as a gift. i.e., this one found me 🙂

The author, George Kohlrieser, is a psychologist and professional hostage negotiator. In this book, he shares insights into how leaders can benefit from the techniques used in hostage negotiation to effectively deal with conflict. George also has a TEDx talk about this topic.

I’m currently reading the second chapter and finding it interesting. However, I have yet to find an example from real-life ‘hostage’ situation, something I was looking forward to. Let’s see how it goes as I read further.

I finished reading Biblioholism, and after starting two books ended up selecting the Memory Booster Workout book. This book has been authored by Jo Iddon and Hue Williams – new names for me.

Also, I’ve been thinking about finding more about the working of human memory, and how one can improve it. So far, the book has been quite engaging, especially the self-assessment questionnaires. Looking forward to learning more!

A random find while checking LinkedIn this morning. This article, by Mario Castillo, reminded me of another short article that I read over a decade ago. Castillo’s message is simple: We have a choice over how we react. Next time, I’ll remember to eat the banana!

I must admit: Even though computer and text editors are convenient and quick, I enjoy writing in a notebook more. The thought process is much more involved (for me) when I do that. I also find writing using beautiful stationery quite fascinating. Put me in a stationery shop and I feel like a child who wants to get everything!

Matt Gemmell – Thank you for putting my thoughts into words! I’m just too lazy to do it myself 🙂

“There’s a ritualistic quality to these objects, but that’s not why I love them. I use them to slow myself down. To introduce just enough friction that I’m compelled to pause. We don’t pause enough anymore. We don’t give ourselves time to think.” Complete article is available at: http://mattgemmell.com/thinking-slowly/
