CUMMING, Ga. - Oct. 5, 2016 - PRLog -- MentorFactor, Inc., and its President/CEO, Judith L. Glick-Smith, Ph.D., are pleased to announce the release of her book, "Flow-based Leadership: What the Best Firefighters Can Teach You About Leadership and Making Hard Decisions," which has been published by Technics Publications (http://www.technicspub.com/management/).

This book is based on her doctoral and post-doctoral research which looked at how firefighters make critical decisions while in a flow state. Flow, a well-researched concept from the field of positive psychology, is the feeling you have when you are working on an activity you love to do, time has no meaning, and you do the work for the sake of the doing. The results of her study showed that people make better decisions when in flow, if they have the right amount of training and experience.

Her post-doctoral research looked at the leadership model of the Georgia Smoke Diver (GSD) program, an extreme, experiential training program in the fire service. The Flow-based Leadership model is derived from the GSD program. According to David Rhodes, Chief Elder of GSD, "Understanding why we do what we do is the first step in defining training programs, establishing policies, communicating ideas with others, and understanding ourselves."

Tom Koulopoulos (http://www.delphiinstitute.com/), author of "The Gen Z Effect (https://www.amazon.com/Gen-Effect-Forces-Shaping-Business...)," writes, "Whether you're in the fire service or not, this book provides incredible and truly unique insights into leadership, decision making, and creating exceptionally effective organizational cultures."
