The Secret to Building High-Performance Teams In The Threat Switch you will learn of an ancient part of our brain that is only the size of an almond, but has huge power. When this part of the brain detects a possible threat to our survival, it immediately hijacks the brain and engages our fight, flee, or freeze reaction mechanism. The challenge all business people face is that this switch doesn't differentiate between a real life-or-death threat situation or a perceived life-or-death threat situation. The switch has only two positions—on or off—and once it senses a threat, it goes into action. And that can prevent high-performance teams. The Threat Switch shows you: ~ How not to allow switch to drive your thoughts or actions ~ If someone flips your switch, how to flip it off and seek first to understand ~ You do not have to choose fight, flight, or freeze; there are other options.
