Unlearn the behaviors and mindsets that keep them and their businesses from moving forward. 2. Relearn the skills, strategies, and innovations that are transforming the world every day. 3.

An entertaining and enlightening read that really made an impact on me. So often we go through life without thinking about how the environment around us has changed while we may not have. Great read

Outstanding, Experienced-Based Analysis by Barry O'Reilly. Too often do we get caught up pressing old methods and expecting a new result. Barry breaks down how to transform current thinking framework and evolve outdated business practices, to catapult skills and strategies into the present and future eras. Barry outlines his three-step system, to discover how to UNLEARN old behaviors and mindsets, RELEARN new skills, strategies and innovations, and BREAKTHROUGH with a fresh perspective to achieve extraordinary results. From his many years working with, advising and coaching high-level executives, Barry has seen first-hand how much of a deep impact can be achieved by breaking old habits and restructuring thinking patterns down to the very core.
In the business world, we feel the pressure to simply keep charging and charging forward. UNLEARN reminds us that what we really need to do is take a step back, restructure our current thinking patterns and habits, see fresh perspectives of the current situation, and open up fresh potential to transform your current performance and trajectory. Barry also discusses how in high-level positions, it's easy to get into a comfortable groove, and stop taking chances. We must utilize our full potential by allowing ourselves to continue to be inspired and absorb fresh perspectives.
"Good leaders know they need to continuously learn. But great leaders know when to unlearn the past to succeed in the future. This book shows you the way."
