The Secret to Building High-Performance Teams
In The Threat Switch you will learn of an ancient part of our brain that is only the size of an almond, but has huge power. When this part of the brain detects a possible threat to our survival, it immediately hijacks the brain and engages our fight, flee, or freeze reaction mechanism. The challenge all business people face is that this switch doesn't differentiate between a real life-or-death threat situation or a perceived life-or-death threat situation. The switch has only two positions—on or off—and once it senses a threat, it goes into action. And that can prevent high-performance teams.
