Rosabeth Moss Kanter will convince you that the goal of winning is not losing two times in a row. In her view, success and failure are not events, they are self-fulfilling tendencies. "Confidence is the sweet spot between arrogance and despair--consisting of positive expectations for favorable outcomes." says Kanter, a Harvard Business School Professor and author of The Change Masters.

She applies the literature of cognitive psychology (dissonance, explanatory models, learned optimism) to explore the winning and losing streaks of a diverse lineup including the BBC, Gillette, Verizon, Continental Airlines, the Chicago Cubs, and Target. The result is a brilliant anatomy lesson of the big decisions and the small gestures that build and restore confidence.

Three cornerstones are clearly detailed: "Accountability," the actions that involve facing facts without humiliation; "Collaboration," the rituals of respect that create teamwork, and "Initiative/Innovation," the "kaleidoscope thinking" that unlocks energy and creativity. A standout chapter describes how Nelson Mandela created a culture of confidence in South Africa. Some readers may wish for more strategies about positive habits of mind in individuals. Others will search for a quick fix. Instead, Moss Kanter’s in-depth examples and ideas about resilient organizations will become required reading. They add up to a persuasive and informed optimism. --Barbara Mackoff

There are many leadership books about what the job of leaders is, and there are some excellent books about how optimistic people accomplish more. Confidence is the first book that I have seen that combines both perspectives in to a description of leadership basics to use confidence to accomplish more. The most valuable part of the book is in how to build confidence in a turnaround situation, another subject about which many good books have been written.

The book's main strength is found in its many compelling stories of how sports, business, non-profit and government organizations have gotten caught up in vicious cycles of losing confidence, broken those cycles and build virtuous cycles of building confidence and effectiveness. These stories are not only interesting; they are balanced for gender and race as well. You come away with a sense that the book's principles are more than adequately established across a broad range of experiences and backgrounds.

I especially enjoyed the rich details behind the headlines of many of these famous stories. In each case, I gained from adding details that I didn't know before even though I was aware of most of the organizational stores involved (I even know some of the people).

Those who get lost in the details will be pleased to discover that Professor Kanter summarizes her findings, with references back to the most telling examples in the brief Part III.

Leaders help create confidence by setting high standards, being a role model for those standards, and establishing processes to get the job done. The cornerstones of confidence that leaders should use include individual and system accountability, mutual respect, communication, collaboration, initiative, imagination and innovation.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Take a pass...Nothing new here. 23. Januar 2005
Von D. Kanigan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Repetitious. Long-winded. Over-hyped. Over-rated. Disappointing. Read the first 5 pages in book store and redeploy your capital elsewhere.

1.0 von 5 Sternen "patience" --needed to read this book from begin to end 28. Dezember 2006
Von j clark - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I had great expectations of this book as it started out OK. But soon (within a couple chapters) I realized that the author had run out of new things to say. While there are some non-fiction authors that can captivate and entertain an audience with a single concept (ie... Gladwell w/"Tipping Point/Blink"), this author's writing style seems unusually laborious and repetitive -- languishing in incomprehensible detail. Sad to say, but I think I would have been better off just reading a synopsis of this book.

1.0 von 5 Sternen This book is boring, tedious, and thoroughly uninspiring 7. Februar 2006
Von T. Berarducci - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I can't believe the average customer review is greater than 4 stars! This book was a chore to read; I will admit that I could not drag myself throught he entire text. And I mean "text". This book was written like a textbook. I felt I back in college slogging through my required reading. This book was written as if someone did a whole bunch of research (using many different grad students of course), then tried to compile all the data into a book. The problem is, anybody can do that, but few can do that well. The writer loses the reader in all those details, forgeting to stick to the basics, highlight them with interesting examples, and repeat them often. I know she probably thinks she did this, and she did, just not well. I've never seen such an interesting topic made so boring.
2.0 von 5 Sternen Too long - much content is non-value added 28. August 2016
Von Woowaa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is entirely too long, which makes you wonder if the author really knows what she's talking about. 99% of the book can be written in less than half the length, leaving the rest completely non-value added. The author seems to be disconnected from her audience base and lacks a basic understanding that in this day and age, people who read business books and self-help books are in need of quick wisdom and don't have appetite for any book that is more than 200 pages long. Any author who is unable to write a business or self-help book in less than 200 pages long does not know the topic very well. Some of the illustrative stories don't seem to support her point. Rather, it seems to be the author touting of her social status and accomplishments by attaching herself to celebrity politicians and business people. I would encourage the author to cut any future books into half the length of her first draft. This will help her clarify and zoom into the key points without losing the audience. Remember, Prof. Kanter, this is not a classroom, you are writing for an audience who do not have the time a student may have on their hand.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Great concept! Wish it had been a better read. 24. April 2007
Von Ziggy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I'm torn in this review... LOVED the high points and the premise - intriguing and powerful... the concepts are tought provoking and the illustrations on point. In between the strong points are redundant, nauseating passages that preach the obvious, as if trying to create a sense of framework, but doing it unnecessarily. Reads like long winded Tom Peters. A shorter book without those passages would have been much better. It's worth reading for the good parts. Darn, wish she'd had a tougher editor and better writing because the concept has the potential for 5 stars.
