As a passionate and purposeful advocate for change, I loved Switch: How to change things when change is hard. My copy is tattered, highlighted and tagged from constant use. Switch kicked me out of the doldrums of monotony with fresh, real and practical ways to change. The Power of Moments made me cry, and blinking back tears I almost fell off the treadmill, where I'd been reading as I walked. The book is a clear eyed look at the value of human interaction. Taken apart, explained with real examples and then put back together with clinics for you to stretch your mind and apply what you've learnt. These are stories of real people, and it shows. You want to be that person, hug, them, help them. As a facilitator and change agent I will be using their practical strategies to change the way I think, feel, and act in every moment, extraordinary or not. Definitely worth getting out the highlighters.
We all experience these defining moments- the authors explore what these moments are made of; and help us to see our experiences with fresh eyes; interesting book - and some good tools to develop our awareness in our busy lives.
