"The Ant and the Elephant: Leadership For the Self" by Olympic speed skier Vince Poscente is an anecdotal look at leadership. Poscente set records on the sloops before writing this book about leadership being more about mindset than problem/solution thinking.
The ant, the part of the brain controlled by intentions must work with the elephant, the part of the brain controlling instincts. Both are needed to be truly effective, but the ant is conscious and the elephant is subconscious.
This book is an interesting, easy-to-read parable with a 5- step action plan to transform workplace performance.
