    Psychology and Philosophy of Change

    This book is aimed at business types but it isn't just for management, IMHO. The subtitle is 'Achieving Greater Creativity through Changes in Perception' and I think that this says more than the title itself. The author presents the idea that it isn't enough just to toss an incentive in front of someone to get improved performance you need to change perceptions and change actions. He refers to some of the well known philosphers (such as Heraclites and Francis Bacon) and shows a heap of eye games sketches - the kind that you can look at from one angle and see one thing and then from another angle and see something else. It is all about changing perceptions because to make a change in reality, you have to make a change in perception. Here is a good example he uses. If someone is late all of the time, s/he could improve on punctuality by using a daily planner or putting fewer items on the calendar - but that will work for a short while then the person reverts to the old late behavior. To make the change permanent, the person must reevaluate the way s/he views punctuality. The book is carefully researched book and well indexed.
