After overclocking the misuse of the term, "schizophrenic," this book really pulled together some main ideas from positive psychology nicely. Don't let that scare you, this is a good listen for anyone who wants to make, support, our encourage positive change.
This book really helped me open my eyes to the simpleness of changing things. I shared this book with many friends and has helped me look at situations differently and look for the hot spot ( I believe it was called haha). Really happy with this purchase 😁
Practice the pure intentions a parent has with their young child.....success will follow! As a leader, parent, or coach, this is a great roadmap!
One of the most universally relevant books I've ever read. Not perfect, but very well crafted and thought provoking. Practical, down to earth, lots of humor.
A great book full of insights about how to drive change for you, your family and your company, even society.
A step by step guide to switch behaviors
As a federal employee leading a major change within an agency, the framework described in Switch will be a valuable tool to help establishing a solid foundation for change and deal with impediments encountered during the process of change.
Narration was awful
Too many boring examples
no idea, but not that guy
disappointed, could get past the first 2 chapters….
The comments about the narration surprise me; I found it enjoyable to listen to as well as informative. I do prefer to hear most authors narrate for themselves however, yes the narrator's voice is a little "Darth Vadeie" but fun to listen to and I did not notice the issues with the audio others complain about. Maybe I was too absorbed with listening to the information: fascinating and useful.
definitely not by the narrator as I found his voice sluggish. I hope the other book I bought Made to Stick is better. Switch references too many other books that I have already read so I wonder if it has any original thought presented.
Present material that seems original
I have listened to "Made to Stick" several times and find something new each time. "Switch" is ever better. The ideas in this book have helped me identify where the problems are that interfere with the change.
I had a meeting a week later. It would have been very easy for all of us to get focused on the why things aren't working. I suggested that we look for the "Bright Spots" and find out where things are working and figure out what they are doing right. Before we were done with breakfast, a couple of my guys were referring to the "Bright Spot Strategy." We are not there yet, but the Bright Spots became a part of our long range plan.
Last week, my boss introduced a new plan that was met with resistance from many of us. Switch helped me figure out if the problem was with the "Rider," the "Elephant," or the "Path." It is a Path problem and now maybe I can quietly give him some ideas on how to shape it.
