Change Anything: The New Science of Personal Successby Kerry Patterson
Synopses & Reviews
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.
Book News Annotation:
Willpower is not the answer. The key to change is in understanding the subtle but powerful influences that shape your choices. Drawing on social science research, this work outlines six sources of influence that affect our daily decisions and explains how to make these factors work in our favor, presenting real-world examples of people who have changed their lives using these tools. Readers are provided with a conceptual framework for seeing themselves as both scientists and the subjects of their own experiments in change. The skills taught here can be used for kicking addictions, losing weight, improving careers, or building relationships. The book is written by a team of authors who have produced three best-sellers. Editor Patterson received Brigham Young University's Dyer Award in 2004, for outstanding contributions in organizational behavior. Business Plus is an imprint of Grand Central Publishing.
