Introducing MERIT'S Monthly Book Giveaway

Current, practical business ideas


Decisive: How to Make Better Decisions in Life and WorkAt Merit, we read a lot. From current thought leaders, to the latest research on critical management skills and adult learning theory. The concepts in these books inform our professional education programs and have often helped drive our own business growth. How we'd like to share them with you by giving a book away each month.

For this month's book, Merit recommends Decisive: How to Make Better Decisions in Life and Work.

Following their best sellers, Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard and Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die, authors Chip Heath and Dan Heath explore why so many of us make poor quality decisions. This very readable book shares the latest research on decision-making, and examines both corporate and personal case studies on how we can improve our decision-making by following the authors' four step WRAP model.

The deadline for entries is March 14, 2014.
