Once a month, I give a presentation to my team over lunch about a book I've read that I have found inspiring or useful. I find that presenting to them, not only helps me to retain the information I've learned, but also encourages them to read these books and gain valuable insights too.
It occurred to me that others may find these presentations useful so I have decided to include them for you here.
This Learning Lunch presentation is on "When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing" by Daniel H. Pink.
Who would have thought timing was so important to the shape of our lives? School children’s grade’s being determined by the time of day they are tested. Whether someone appearing in court is sentenced or not significantly influenced by the time of day they make their appearance. Which tasks are we better at in the morning than the afternoon, and vice versa?
Those who subscribe to our monthly newsletter will know that I have recommended most of Dan Pink’s previous books, and this just might be his best yet. I hope this Learning Lunch presentation will give you a feel for it, but I encourage you to read it all the same as it is a brilliant book that will make you think about your day from a totally different perspective.
