Change Anything: The New Science of Personal Success | [Kerry Patterson, Joseph Grenny, David Maxfield, Ron McMillan, Al Switzler]

Change Anything: The New Science of Personal Success

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?

Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Great Helpful Read"
    Would you listen to Change Anything again? Why?

    Absolutely, the strategies and information taught in this book were fantastic the first time and I anticipate them helping me even more the next go around.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Change Anything?

    Hard to say seeing as how it was a self help book, but there were several memorable and eye opening statements and I loved how it was all backed up with academic research. The whole thing was memorable.


    Which character – as performed by Joseph Grenny – was your favorite?

    There aren't really different characters, just the narrator.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yeah, it was shocking in its ability to portray new and helpful information, and helped me realize that I have approached change in my life in exactly the wrong way for a long time.


    Any additional comments?

    I have absolutely no doubt that the tactics and strategies taught in this book will work. I've read quire a number of self help books and I feel like this one took elements from many of them and formed it into a cohesive and effective strategy for enacting change or overcoming addiction in ones life.

    "Debunks willpower. Great listen!"
    Would you listen to Change Anything again? Why?

    Great how it is.


    Any additional comments?

    This book shows how we can fight battles with with tangible tools and teaches how to use them. Willpower is only a nebulous theory that I can't quite get hold of. Now I know why.
