Book: “Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard” by Chip and Dan Heath
Learning Objective: How to change things when change is hard.
Discussion Topic: Recommendations for bringing about change.
The Heath brothers think that the sciences of human behavior can provide us with tools for making changes in our lives—tools that are more effective than "willpower," "leadership" and other easier-said-than-done solutions. The authors explain a couple of fundamental principles of psychology and distill from them concise recommendations for bringing about change. They convey their ideas primarily through stories about people, companies and organizations that have successfully undertaken major realignments, sometimes in the face of long odds.
