Phil Jauncey has written three books.
Understanding Ourselves and Others (Revised 2nd Edition)
This book was completed in response to various audiences (eg companies, parents, teachers, community groups) who had asked for explanations as to why we do what we do.
It is written in a style that the lay person can enjoy and become informed. At the same time it contains research references for the academic reader.
If the readers can understand themselves better and also learn more effectively to comprehend why others react to the world in the way they do, then the readers will improve their interaction with others. This awareness process is not difficult or too complex, but rather can be explained relatively simply. It emphasises that the key to personal success is ownership of everything we do.

Managing Yourself and Others
The contents of this book are the result of Phil’s consultancies, seminars and workshops over a decade. This means that the content is applied, focused and relevant to specific Australian issues (as well as those arising in other countries).
The major issues confronting businesses seem to be understanding staff and clients, communication, self-motivation, personnel (staff retention/dismissal, discrimination/harassment), time management, dealing with difficult clients/staff, negotiation/persuasion and handling others.
These are some of the topics dealt with in the book. Some strategies to yield improvement are included, but the aim is to encourage every reader to develop his/her own strategies that are specifically designed to work in his/her own unique environment.

The Power of Positive Doing
In this recently published e-book Phil presents the view that Performance Psychology is based on controllable actions rather than mental or emotional states. Where traditional approaches to this area focus on aspects such as emotional regulation, mental mastery and relaxation, Phil, in a simple and down to earth manner, shows how we can have high performance even when our minds and emotions are seemingly very destructive. He has used his methods and theories with athletes and teams in a variety of sports at both the elite and professional level (Olympics, World Championships and National Championships) as well as social and junior sports. Phil has also used this technique with actors (film and stage) and musicians (instrumental and opera). In addition, in this book he applies this methodology to personal and relationship counselling, business and staff management and child discipline.
