In the mind's eye : enhancing human performance by Daniel Druckman( Book )

7 editions published between 1991 and 2000 in English and held by 908 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a look at methods of performance enhancement, examining basic issues of performance through a series of papers which evaluate several popular self-improvement approaches by weighing the evidence to determine what works. The first of the book's four parts provides an overview of the volume with two chapters describing the history of the project and key findings. The second section, "Training," contains three chapters: "Optimizing Long-Term Retention and Transfer,""Modeling Expertise," and "Developing Careers." The third section, "Altering Mental States," contains the following five chapters: "Subliminal Self-Help,""Meditation,""Managing Pain,""Hiding and Detecting Deception," and "a Broad Concept of Deception." The final section, "Performing," contains two chapters entitled "Optimizing Individual Performance," and "Enhancing Team Performance." Two appendixes contain a description of committee activities and biographical sketches of committee members. Each chapter includes extensive notes and references. (Jb)
Learning, remembering, believing : enhancing human performance by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the third report of the Committee on Techniques for the Enhancement of Human Performance. Based on hundreds of research studies of learning and human performance as reported in the literature, the book consists of 11 chapters organized in five parts. The two chapters of the first part provide the background and summary of the committee's study. The first chapter describes the topics undertaken in this third phase of the study and the relationships between these topics and earlier work done by the committee. Chapter 2 summarizes key findings and conclusions for each chapter. The second part of the book considers a number of issues related to individual training. Chapter 3 focuses on the extent to which training should be provided in a situation similar to which performance occurs; chapter 4 addresses the illusions of comprehension that occur when people do not understand the reasons for the "right" answers to problems. The three chapters of part 3 consider learning and performing in teams. In chapter 5, research on cooperative learning, especially for adults, is reviewed. Chapters 6 and 7 focus on team performance and team training. In the fourth part, the implications of a person's emotional state for performance are discussed. In chapter 8, studies on achievement motivation, career development, health and exercise behavior, anxiety disorders, and sport and motor performance are discussed, with a concentration on perceptions of self-confidence. The following chapter focuses primarily on hypnosis, with side studies on restricted environmental stimulation and meditation and sleep learning. The last part of the book presents findings from two relatively new fields in the area of human performance. Chapter 10 considers socially induced affect, and thought suppression is the topic of the final chapter. Contains 1,190 references. (Kc)
Enhancing human performance : issues, theories, and techniques by Daniel Druckman( Book )

5 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in English and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes the activities, findings, and conclusions of a committee that examined the potential value of techniques proposed to enhance human performance. Chapter 1 provides the context for the study and the Army's interest in enhancing performance, characterizes particular techniques, and introduces general issues in evaluating them. Chapter 2 presents findings about the techniques examined and conclusions about appropriate evaluation procedures. Chapter 3 treats the relevant evaluation issues more systematically and presents the committee's philosophy of evaluation. Chapters 4-8 deal with particular techniques but are organized in terms of more general psychological processes. Each chapter attempts to draw on a broader literature concerning the processes being influenced--learning, motor skills, mental states, stress, and social interactions. Chapter 9 considers parapsychological techniques. The report concludes with six appendixes. They (1) briefly summarize the key elements of each enhancement technique, (2) list the 10 papers commissioned by the committee and their authors, (3) list members and activities of the subcommittees and activities of the committee as a whole, (4) list key terms used in the research on particular techniques, (5) discuss application of scientific research by the military, and (6) contain biographical sketches of committee members.

The changing nature of work : implications for occupational analysis by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume explores the increasing demographic diversity of the workforce, the fluidity of boundaries between lines of work, the interdependent choices for how work is structured - and ultimately, the need for an integrated systematic approach to understanding how work is changing. The book offers a rich array of data and highlighted examples on markets, technology, and many other external conditions affecting the nature of work; research findings on American workers and how they feel about work; downsizing and the trend toward flatter organizational hierarchies; and autonomy, complexity, and other aspects of work structure."--BOOK JACKET
