The chimp paradox : the mind management program to help you achieve success, confidence, and happiness
The author explains the struggle that takes place within your mind and then shows how to apply this understanding to every area of your life so you can:
- Recognise how your mind is working
- Understand and manage your emotions and thoughts
- Manage yourself and become the person you would like to be
The Chimp Mind Management Model is based on scientific facts and principles, which have been simplified into a workable model for easy use. It will help you to develop yourself and give you the skills, for example, to remove anxiety, have confidence and choose your emotions. The book will do this by giving you an understanding of the way in which your mind works and how you can manage it. It will also help you to identify what is holding you back or preventing you from having a happier and more successful life.


Human givens : the new approach to emotional health and clear thinking
The authors describe how we are all born with a rich natural inheritance – a partially formed mind containing a genetic treasure-house of innate knowledge patterns: the ‘human givens’. We all experience these givens as physical and emotional needs, powerful forces that must be satisfactorily met in our environment if our minds are to unfold and develop to their fullest potential. How these innate patterns connect up with the world, and unfold in it, determine our own and our family’s emotional health and happiness – as well as the maturity and humanity of the society we create around us.

Fish! : a proven way to boost morale and improve results
Fish! is an inspirational parable for all businesses and managers that need to boost morale and regain enthusiasm. Using the example of Mary Jane Ramirez, a manager hired to turn around the "toxic energy dump" that had become Seattle's Pike Place Market, the authors present the keys to turning a stagnant department into a positive, thriving environment. Fish! provides the concrete steps to maximizing energy, enthusiasm, productivity, and creativity in the workplace.
