I loved this book. It is unfortunately still challenging in the business domain to find people who think systemically, believe in personal mastery and apply design thinking practices. I really enjoyed hearing Peter speak and laugh. Well worth the read especially of you are someone working with organisations in a consultative capacity.

Insights—like Darwin's understanding of the way evolution actually works, and Watson and Crick's breakthrough discoveries about the structure of DNA-can change the world. We also need insights into the everyday things that frustrate and confuse us so that we can more effectively solve problems and get things done. Yet we know very little about when, why, or how insights are formed—or what blocks them. In Seeing What Others Don't, renowned cognitive psychologist Gary Klein unravels the mystery.

Gary's investigation into and understanding of how insights occur is thorough and a testament to insightfulness. The narration is lovely and the voice type well matched to the topic. I love the use of story as the frame also. Will have to listen to it again.

Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their successes over and over? People like Martin Luther King, Jr.; Steve Jobs; and the Wright Brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why. Their natural ability to start with why enabled them to inspire those around them and to achieve remarkable things.

Simon Sinek is so spot on with this brilliant work. It is the hardest thing to help people define...purpose. I love this book and will need to listen to it again to take on all of the wisdom that is contained within. Thanks For the inspiration!
