The Conative Connection.

The Conative Connection

by Kathy Kolbe

We have all grown up with the adage "actions speak louder than words", but few of us realize that the way we act -- the way we deal with challenge and risk, the way we communicate, the way we learn, and the way we play -- remains consistent throughout our lives.

This book offers the first real insight into why we do things the way we do, enabling us to harness, rather than work against, the tremendous power of our own innate and highly individual creative instincts.

The Connative Connection delivers the liberating message that you don't have to change the way you act to improve your performance. Quite the contrary. If you try to accomplish tasks throughout your "resistant" modes, you will quickly be frustrated. The author shows you how to predict what you and other people will and won't do, how to avoid the forms of stress that grow out of misplaced expectations, and how to turn obstacles to productivity into synergy. "Your best performance", Kolbe says "the one that brings you the greatest sense of accomplishment, not as an actor but as a person, comes from doing what comes naturally".
