A stunning new approach to how individuals can not only change their lives for the better in the workplace, but also their lives away from the office, including (but not limited to) finding ways to improve one's working relationship with others, one's overall health, outlook on life, and so on.
For example, why is it that 95% of all diet attempts fail? Why do New Year's Resolutions last no more than a few days? Why can't people with good intentions seem to make consistent and positive strides in the way they want to improve their careers, financial fitness, physical fitness, and so on?
Based upon the latest research in a number of psychological and medical fields, the authors of Change Anything will show that traditional will-power is not necessarily the answer to these strivings, that people are affected in their behaviors by far more subtle influences. Change Anything shows how individuals can come to understand these powerful and influential forces, and how to put these forces to work in a positive manner that brings real and meaningful results.
The authors present an array of everyday examples that will change and truly empower you to reexamine the way you go about your business and life.

I've listened to it several times. These authors at least 4 other books & 3 of them I've listened to multiple times, bought the physical books, bought the e books & even took the course for the book!
Brian is an avid reader. He is interested in great stories and human behavior. His job is as a behavioral specialist in public schools.
I have not only used this information in this book to change me, but I have also equipped my own special education students with the skills needed for change. This book is a life changer! Read it! Take notes! Change!
Simple as possible review. If you want help changing things, habits, and your life; make this one of the set you should have. Listen twice, do the work. Just about like you'd expect it to be. Get it.
I've taken off points because they constantly reference a website with "exclusive content" that does not exist. The website redirects to there facebook page.
Overall theory and applicable guidelines are good.
I read the authors' works before. Particularly reading this one after reading Influencer seemed as if I am reading the same. There are books which I read over and over again and I find every read as humbling as the previous one. But I didn't have the same feeling on this one. I couldn't latch on to the book for long.I was disappointed to have spent money on this one :-(
Perhaps my review would have been different if this was the first book I read.
I love Mr.Grenny's narration and wouldn't have asked for more.
I love to read and listen to audio books.
Fabulous!! Absolutely a must read! I recommend this book to anyone who wants to improve and change their behavior.
I loved how straightforward it was with the steps of change and then giving many solid example of how to apply them. Definitely going to use teach this to others as well.
Of course this book is life changing as that is its purpose. Having majored in psychology, I am drawn to self help and behavioral science books. This book is liberating because it downplays personal motivation, which I have been considering as faulty reasoning before but didn't understand why until I read this. I really do believe I can change my problems and the world, in a sense. Who doesn't want to change the world?
