- How do you make the right decisions, time after time, in the face of extreme challenges?
- How can you foster far-sighted leadership throughout your enterprise?
- How do you build the capacity to do better?
- What does it take to change the world?
For the better part of a decade, we’ve been researching these questions, drawing on insights from neuroscience, organizational learning, social psychology, and the study of ethical values. We published the results in The Wise Advocate: The Inner Voice of Strategic Leadership, by Art Kleiner, Jeffrey Schwartz, and Josie Thomson (available Jan 29, 2019 from Columbia University Press).
Art Kleiner is a recognized expert on management thinking, and a sought-after advisor on thought leadership, scenario planning, and executive success. For 15 years, he was the editor-in-chief of strategy+business, the management magazine published by PwC. His other books include The Age of Heretics, which is a history of the innovators of today’s management practices, and Who Really Matters, which explain how organizations are driven by their core groups.
Jeffrey Schwartz is a research psychiatrist at UCLA School of Medicine and a leading expert on neuroplasticity. His many books include Brain Lock: Free Yourself from Obsessive-Compulsive Behavior (1997) and You Are Not Your Brain: The 4-Step Solution for Changing Bad Habits, Ending Unhealthy Thinking, and Taking Control of Your Life (2011, with Rebecca Gladding).
