Hare Brain Tortoise Mind by Guy Claxton This looks at a new way of thinking about thinking! It examines how often there are many problems better solved by slower more intuitive thinking, rather than the linear logical process. Claxton shows that our unconscious intelligence is more productive than we think and that really thinking doesn't have to be a strain or effort because unconsciously we pick up on patterns and these patterns guide our actions.

Video: Positive Deviance

A collection of videos on Positive Deviance.

Positive Deviance (PD) is an approach to behavioral and social change based on the observation that in every community there are individuals or groups of people (so called Positive Deviants) whose behaviours and strategies enable them to find better solutions to problems than their peers even though they have access to the same resources and face similar challenges.

In the international development and health sectors, PD has been used to address issues as diverse as childhood malnutrition, neo-natal mortality, girl trafficking, school drop-out, female genital mutilation (FGM), MRSA infections in hospitals and HIV/AIDS.
