All of us have things we want to change in our businesses, communities and even our families. For things to change, somebody somewhere has to start acting differently. Maybe it’s you. Maybe it’s your team. Why do some big changes happen easily while many small changes prove impossible? The answer hinges on some of the most fascinating findings in psychology. Building on this research, Dan Heath will reveal a simple, 3-part framework that will help you change things in tough times.
