Switch : how to change things when change is hard by Chip Heath( Book )

38 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and Korean and held by 3,577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Made to stick : why some ideas survive and others die by Chip Heath( Book )

38 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in English and Korean and held by 3,103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Urban legends, conspiracy theories, and bogus public-health scares circulate effortlessly. Meanwhile, people with important ideas--business people, teachers, politicians, journalists, and others--struggle to make their ideas "stick." Why do some ideas thrive while others die? And how do we improve the chances of worthy ideas? Educators and idea collectors Chip and Dan Heath reveal the anatomy of ideas that stick and explain ways to make ideas stickier, such as applying the "human scale principle," using the "Velcro Theory of Memory," and creating "curiosity gaps." In this fast-paced tour of success stories (and failures), we discover that sticky messages of all kinds--from the infamous "kidney theft ring" hoax to a coach's lessons on sportsmanship to a vision for a new product at Sony--draw their power from the same six traits. This book that will transform the way you communicate ideas.--From publisher description
Decisive : how to make better choices in life and work by Chip Heath( Book )

28 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research in psychology has revealed that our decisions are disrupted by an array of biases and irrationalities: We are overconfident. We seek out information that supports us and downplay information that does not. We get distracted by short-term emotions. When it comes to making choices, it seems, our brains are flawed instruments. Unfortunately, merely being aware of these shortcomings does not fix the problem, any more than knowing that we are nearsighted helps us to see. The real question is: How can we do better? In this book, the authors, based on an exhaustive study of the decision-making literature, introduce a four-step process designed to counteract these biases. It takes readers on a journey from a rock star's ingenious decision-making trick to a CEO's disastrous acquisition to a single question that can often resolve thorny personal decisions. Along the way, we learn the answers to critical questions like: How can we stop the cycle of agonizing over our decisions? How can we make group decisions without destructive politics? And how can we ensure that we don't overlook precious opportunities to change our course? Because the right decision, at the right moment, can make all the difference
The power of moments : why certain experiences have extraordinary impact by Chip Heath( Book )

13 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 950 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While human lives are endlessly variable, our most memorable positive moments are dominated by four elements: elevation, insight, pride, and connection. If we embrace these elements, we can conjure more moments that matter. What if a teacher could design a lesson that he knew his students would remember twenty years later? What if a manager knew how to create an experience that would delight customers? What if you had a better sense of how to create memories that matter for your children? This book delves into some fascinating mysteries of experience: Why we tend to remember the best or worst moment of an experience, as well as the last moment, and forget the rest. Why 'we feel most comfortable when things are certain, but we feel most alive when they're not.' And why our most cherished memories are clustered into a brief period during our youth. Readers discover how brief experiences can change lives, such as the experiment in which two strangers meet in a room, and 45 minutes later, they leave as best friends. (What happens in that time?) Or the tale of the world's youngest female billionaire, who credits her resilience to something her father asked the family at the dinner table. (What was that simple question?) Many of the defining moments in our lives are the result of accident or luck -- but why would we leave our most meaningful, memorable moments to chance when we can create them? The Power of Moments shows us how to be the author of richer experiences."--Dust jacket flap

Switch : cómo cambiar las cosas cuando cambiar es difícil by Chip Heath( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in Spanish and English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why is it so hard to make lasting changes in our work, in our communities, and in our own lives? Per Chip and Dan Heath, the primary obstacle is a conflict that's hardwired into our minds. Psychologists have discovered that we are ruled by two competing thought patterns--the rational and the emotional. The rational mind wants the perfect beach body; the emotional wants that Oreo cookie. The rational mind wants to change something at work; the emotional loves the comfort of the existing routine. This tension can doom an effort to change--but if it is overcome, change can come quickly. Engaging and informative, Switch demonstrates how everyday people have united both systems of thought and, as a result, achieved dramatic results"--
