Phiology: The Secret Code of Leadership (Unabridged)
Phiology isn't a word. I made it up. It was necessary to invent such a label since no single discipline encompassed the synergy of physiology, psychology, and philosophy necessary for effective leadership. This audiobook is not a list of the greatest leaders of all time, nor a treatise about meaningless inspirational platitudes. It is not about how to communicate better, win friends and influence people, or make a million dollars. The aim of Phiology is no less than the optimization of human happiness and prosperity, which only arise when we are clear-thinking, healthy, and focused on important work for the betterment of all. While that seems like a gargantuan task, it is surprisingly simple. We make it harder than it has to be.
When questions arise about what the most important factors are that lead to peak performance, we tend to focus on the brain, and center around what and how people think. This brain centric approach ignores the fact that a human being is a system, with all parts acting in harmony, and when out of balance, things tend to go awry. This work is a curation of the best insights on leadership that I have found during the last decade of my research. However, insights are one thing, but actionable information is another altogether. The purpose of Phiology isn't to add to the scholarship of leadership, but rather, to give actionable information that you can start using immediately.
The discoveries made will help you:
1. Control your physiology to achieve optimal performance.
2. Navigate obstacles by shifting your perception of events.
3. Decode the origins and fallacies of decision making, in yourself, and by others.
4. Uncover vital parts of any system, revealing key leverage points that drive success.
5. Expand your influence in an ethical and meaningful way.
