2 Dangerous Things A Year: Your Change Evolution to get Change Fit

If you constantly find yourself to be the smartest person in every room you’re in, then you need to get you into some different rooms. And that’s the theme of this book: developing yourself or your people by getting out of the ‘room’ you’re in, getting out of your comfort zone, getting better at getting better, working out your change muscles and building up your reservoir of resilience so you’ve got them before you need them.

  1. Why you should be proactive about change and risk,
  2. Why most people aren’t, and
  3. How you can – how you can make a start, build momentum, muscle through when it gets tough and bring others along for the ride.

There is a real concern amongst leaders that their people are unfit for change. Being unfit for change leads to disengaged and burnt-out people who won’t develop themselves nor meet their goals. The lack of development and unmet goals further reinforces negativity and contributes to a downward spiral called ‘Change Extinction’. The more positive alternative choice (and it is a choice) is a pathway called ‘Change Evolution’.

You can start on your ‘Change Evolution’ path by reading this book, doing your own dangerous things, adapting your ‘Danger DNA’, and becoming ‘Change Fit’.

Getting Better Buy-In – A Leader’s Motivation Handbook

The thing about behaviour change is that you can’t do it for them, nor can you always be around when the going gets tough. For those people doing the actual moving towards behaviour change, they need to:

  • want to do it,
  • think they need to do it,
  • think they can do it, and
  • think they should do it now.

The combination of all those conditions is what we label ‘motivated’.

What I’ve done with this book, and its associated presentations and workshops, is to give you structures, systems, tools and the design for environments that will allow and enable you to motivate yourselves when I’m not around. And, more importantly, for you to do the same with your people.

Live Work Love: #Add10QualityYears

12 tools to add 10 years. Our longevity, health and quality of life are due 30% to genetic luck and 70% to our choices and behaviours. We’re dealt some cards and this book is about how to play the best hand, given those cards we’ve been dealt. No one wants to live forever but most of us would like to get the most out of whatever we’ve got coming. The vast majority of us would like to keep on going until we don’t, not taper off to a long unhealthy tail of life. Regardless of how long we have, how do we stay healthier longer, optimise our happiness and productivity, and make it all worthwhile?
