Chip Heath, Dan Heath's Switch PDF

¿Por qué es tan difícil lograr cambios duraderos en nuestros trabajos, nuestrascomunidades y nuestras propias vidas?

El obstáculo central es un conflicto intrínsico en el cerebro, nos dicen Chip y Dan Heath, dos reconocidos especialistas en comportamiento organizacional. Los psicólogos han descubierto que los angeles mente está gobernada por dos sistemas diferentes —la mente racional y l. a. mente emocional— que compiten por el regulate. los angeles mente racional quiere un cuerpo perfecto; l. a. mente emocional quiere comerse esa galleta. l. a. mente racional quiere cambiar el trabajo; l. a. mente emocional ama los angeles comodidad y los angeles rutina. Esta tensión puede causar que muchos esfuerzos por cambiar fracasen, pero si se superan, el cambio puede llegar rápidamente.

En Switch, los hermanos Heath muestran cómo personas normales y corrientes han unido estas dos mentes, logrando espectaculares resultados:
·        los angeles directora quien ayudó a objective, a pesar de ser una compañía minorista local que facturaba tres billones de dólares, a convertirise en un gigante de más de sixty three billones dólares.
·        los angeles directora de servicios clínicos que, junto con su equipo de enfermeras, logró reducir drásticamente los errores en l. a. administración de medicamentos en su hospital.
·        El director de atención al cliente que transformó a su compañía de una que ignoraba totalmente el servicio al cliente a ser una compañía definida por él.
En este convincente relato, los Heath reúnen décadas de investigación en los campos de psicología, sociología y negocios entre muchos otros, para explicar por qué cambiar es tan difícil y dar a conocer nuevas maneras de lograr cambios duraderos.  Switch muestra que los cambios exitosos siguen un modelo, un modelo que puedes utilizar para lograr los cambios que tú quieras, tanto si tu interés se centra en cambiar el mundo como en cambiar tu cintura.

Example text

By his familiar method of patient cross-examination, Socrates won agreement from Nicomachides that successful business men and generals perform much the same functions. Then Socrates proceeded to identify six of these functions or skills: • selecting the right man for the right job; • punishing the bad and rewarding the good; • winning the goodwill of those under them; • attracting allies and helpers; • keeping what they have gained; • being strenuous and industrious in their own work. ’ ‘That is just where it will be most helpful,’ Socrates concluded.

Can leaders who do not believe in God, let alone in trying in private to see themselves ‘in the light of God’s countenance,’ still become humble? Yes, they can. For leadership at its most sublime touches the human spirit. That indefinable spirit includes the power we have to transcend ourselves for the common good, even to the point of laying down our lives. Experience deepens respect, trust and love. Such a leader will come to look upon leadership as a privilege in itself, not as a passport to privileges which would otherwise be denied to them.

As a start, a leader should possess or exemplify the qualities expected or required in their working groups or organisations. • Look back on the last chapter and list the five core qualities of a good soldier, regardless of rank. Keep it by you, and amend it as you read the rest of the book. • In your business what qualities of personality and character do you expect everyone to have?
