Daniel Coyle - 2018-01-30 (publicado por primera vez en 2017)
Calificación de Goodreads
What do Pixar, Google and the San Antonio Spurs basketball team have in common?The answer is that they all owe their extraordinary success to their team-building skills. In The Culture Code, Daniel Coyle goes inside some of the most effective organisations in the world and reveals their secrets. He not only explains what makes such groups tick, but also identifies the key factors that can generate team cohesion in any walk of life. He examines the verbal and physical cues that bring people together. He determines specific strategies that encourage collaboration and build trust. And he offers cautionary tales of toxic cultures and advises how to reform them, above all demonstrating the extraordinary achievements that result when we know how to cooperate effectively.

The author looks at a bunch of different cultures. Pixar, Navy SEALs, etc... And he’s looking for patterns among what makes people disproportionately effective as a culture.      fuente

Las personas altamente sensibles
Elaine N. Aron - 1997-06-02
Calificación de Goodreads
Muchos de los grandes artistas y pensadores de la historia de todos los tiempos fueron personas altamente sensibles (PAS). En la actualidad una de cada cinco personas nace con una elevada sensibilidad. Éste es el primer libro que le ayudará a descubrir y comprender este don de la personalidad en usted mismo y que le mostrará cómo obtener el máximo partido de él. Combinando una sólida investigación con la experiencia clínica acumulada durante muchos años, la doctora Aron ofrece tests de autoevaluación, estudios de casos reales, testimonios, consejos prácticos y reflexiones sobre el universo de las personas altamente sensibles y su contribución al desarrollo humano y tecnológico de la humanidad. «Este excepcional libro se dirige claramente a las personas de elevada sensibilidad. Ofrece una perspectiva fresca, un panorama confortante y una propuesta interesante para redescubrir nuestro lugar en la sociedad.» JOHN GRAY, autor de Los hombres son de Marte, las mujeres de Venus. «Todos, hasta los más rudos, deberían conocer el análisis perceptivo que hace Elaine Aron de esta dimensión fundamental de la naturaleza humana. Con un atractivo estilo, la autora nos descubre las muchas facetas de la sensibilidad. Su equilibrada presentación nos muestra los desafíos y las tribulaciones a las que se enfrentan estas personas, y sugiere nuevos caminos para hacer de la sensibilidad una bendición, nunca una desventaja.» PHILIP G. ZIMBARDO, autor de Shyness
