In Simple Sabotage,  authors Robert M. Galford, Bob Frisch and Cary Greene revisit a list of OSS tactics designed to thwart the internal processes of organizations, with tips for wasting time  and bringing efficiency to a halt. The OSS believed that these small acts of barely detectable sabotage would wear down the enemy over time and help the Allies win the war. Frisch explains that these same behaviors are rampant in organizations today, from global corporations to PTA committees, yet people typically have no idea they are even taking place.

Hosts Larry Warren and Doug Wells's first guest is Neel Doshi, co-author of Primed to Perform: How to Build the Highest Performing Cultures Through the Science of Total Motivation. While most leaders believe culture is critical to success, few know how to build one, or sustain it over time. In Primed to Perform, Doshi and Lindsay McGregor show how to do just that.

Hosts Larry Warren and Doug Wells interview Bobby Monks, author of Uninvested: How Wall Street Highjacks your Money and How to Fight Back:

Every month our financial statements arrive, and every month we glance at them, trying to understand, hoping that we’ll come out ahead. But most of us have no idea what’s really going on or the costs involved. According to Bobby Monks—who has been a banker and borrower, investor and entrepreneur—financial firms and money managers have complicated the investing process to keep us in the dark, profiting from our ignorance.
