Harness the power of Human Nature
OK, we realize a book about human nature called Selfish Scared & Stupid doesn't sound like a compliment. But in fact, these are the three features of our essential natures that have helped us to survive and thrive.
Put simply, this is a book about how our survival brain calls dibs on all of our initial decision-making. And while this "reptilian" part of the brain is not as exciting as the pre-frontal cortex, it is critical to human behaviour and performance.
The truth is, the more you're able to anchor desired behaviour in personal gain, whilst mitigating risk (be it reputational, financial, physical or personal) and reduce the friction in the process whilst creating a sense of ease and simplicity, the higher your chances of success.
