Overview
-

The ‘moonlight effect’ is the inclination of people to overrate the wisdom and insight of leaders and other senior figures. Like the moon, we tend to assume that executives, authorities and experts illuminate society. The moon, however, is not the actual source of light. Similarly, leaders are not the main source of most contributions.

Because of this ‘moonlight effect’, organizations implement many practices that increase expenses but damage progress and wellbeing. The Moonlight Effect: Debunking Business Myths to Improve Wellbeing explains the proliferation of many of society’s problems, e.g. excessive executive pay, unfair performance appraisals, destructive advertising practices, and the pursuit of the perfect appearance.

As the moonlight effect also increases business expenses, this book looks at expenses, e.g. bonuses, consulting fees, legal and recruitment costs, and presents solutions to reduce these expenses while improving performance.
