  • Change by Design: How Design Thinking Transforms Organizations and Inspires Innovation

The myth of innovation is that brilliant ideas leap fully formed from the minds of geniuses. The reality is that most innovations come from a process of rigorous examination through which great ideas are identified and developed before being realized as new offerings and capabilities. This is not a book by designers for designers; this is a book for creative leaders seeking to infuse design thinking into every level of an organization's products or service to drive new alternatives for business and society.

  • How to Change Things When Change Is Hard
  • By: Dan Heath, Chip Heath
  • Narrated by: Charles Kahlenberg

In a compelling, story-driven narrative, the Heaths bring together decades of counterintuitive research in psychology, sociology, and other fields to shed new light on how we can effect transformative change. Switch shows that successful changes follow a pattern, a pattern you can use to make the changes that matter to you, whether your interest is in changing the world or changing your waistline.

The goals of the budo - the martial arts and ways of Japan - lie in refining the body and spirit. These goals are not always the obvious ones - and are learned only through the guidance and direction of great teachers. The techniques, methods, and rituals of the sensei can serve as guides to a well-lived life - and provide invaluable lessons for today's martial artists.

If you could sum up Traditions in three words, what would they be?

Well Researched Information

What was one of the most memorable moments of Traditions?

The story of the Senpi and the Kohai brought it all together for me and the students I train with.

Which scene was your favorite?

In the story of the Senpi and the Kohai, the reader just read the story so dramatically! There is nothing like a ghost story read out loud to make me smile!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to it day and night, in the car, at work, falling asleep. I recommended it on my facebook page. I can't wait to read more from Dave Lowry.
