Summary
He may have an MBA, but hes got no common sense. Assessments like that by a boss can stop a career dead in its tracks. Unfortunately, many believe that common sense is a trait you are either born with or you are not. This book dispels that myth. Through the pages of Common Sense: Get It, Use It, and Teach Itin the Workplace readers will learn not only what common sense is, but how to acquire it and use it to enhance their careers, increase their confidence, and take better advantage of business opportunities. Common Sense explores the useand non-useof common sense in the workplace and the world around us. It shows how you can become a person of great wisdom and good judgment by simply learning about all the ways people stumble in the thought process. Author Ken Tanner, a seasoned manager, consultant, and former regional vice president for two major U.S. restaurant chains, shows readers how to make better decisions, how to spot and avoid fallacious thinking, how to better assess ambiguous situations, and how to become a mature thinker with a knack for making the right move at just the right time. Best of all, Common Sense shows how to teach this trait to others, especially subordinates and co-workers who can and will dononsensical things unless you help them learn to reason through their decisions and actions quickly and confidently. The payoff? Your staff will make you look good, greasing the way for greater responsibility and opportunity. This book: Takes you through an understanding of the term "common sense"what it means and what it doesnt mean. Shows how fallacies create barriers to using common sense. Provides dozens of examples of the application (as well as rejection) of common sense in the business world and elsewhere. Shows how to teach common sense to others
