Know Can Do! Attempting to better themselves—learn new skills, break bad habits—people read books, attend seminars, take training courses. But in spite of what they sincerely believe are their best efforts, their behavior doesn’t change. It’s an endless source of frustration for organizations and individuals. Because people who have mastered learning are free to be creative and make big things happen, Ken Blanchard takes a strong personal interest in this problem. In Know Can Do he and his coauthors Paul J. Meyer and Dick Ruhe use the fable format Blanchard made famous to lay out a straightforward method for making sure you actually use what you know. This engaging fable teaches you how to avoid information overload by learning less more, not more less; adjust your brain’s filtering system to learn up to 100 times more than before; ignite your creativity and resourcefulness with Green Light Thinking; master what you’ve learned using spaced repetition; and more. At last, an answer to the question “Why don’t I do what I know I should do? Read thisbook and you will!
