The “Melting Point” of the title refers to a critical psychological threshold that all of us face when under massive stress and pressure—the point at which we cannot control our thinking, emotions, and behaviors in an impactful way anymore. We start to internally derail, show dysfunctional behaviors, and perhaps even walk away. This book discusses how leaders can raise their Melting Point—so they can successfully handle the enormous pressures of today’s demanding commercial environment. This, in turn, enables them to maintain a winning edge in their career, lead their team effectively, and deliver tangible long-term benefits to their organization.
