Running With Scissors:
Why Smart People Do Dumb Things (and How to Avoid Them)
Mental intelligence is not a vaccine against doing dumb things. Look at any newspaper and you will find example after example of really smart people who shoot themselves in the foot:
Martha Stewart, Kenneth Lay, Dennis Kozlowski, etc. This seminar explores the concept of "unforced errors" or self-sabotaging mistakes people make that are not only avoidable ... but dumb! Attendees will discover eight ways to recognize and eliminate unforced errors in their lives.
