Switchcraft By Elaine Fox Audio Book Summary
A revolutionary audiobook on the power of mental agility to transform your life, from Oxford psychologist and neuroscientist Professor Elaine Fox.
What is the key ingredient to a happy, successful life?
Endless self-help approaches claim to have the answer. It’s important to be mindful, we are told, and to stay in the moment. Sometimes, we are advised to keep going no matter what, to be ‘gritty’. Others tell us that adopting a ‘growth mindset’ is key.
However, the truth is that there is no one size fits all solution to dealing with life. Elaine Fox, one of the world’s leading psychologists and performance coaches, has witnessed this time and again. In her work coaching top athletes, military leaders and business professionals, she has seen that it’s the people who know how and when to switch between different approaches—people who have an agile mind—who achieve the best performance.
Drawing on 25 years of scientific research, Fox shares with us her step-by-step guide to what she calls ‘switchcraft’: the set of skills we need to navigate a complex and uncertain world. Whether it’s coping with a difficult boss, overcoming a fear, dealing with hyperactive children, resolving a dispute with a friend or making a difficult choice about where to live or what to do, switchcraft helps us thrive in any situation.
