The Catalyst - June Bookclub selection
Our June bookclub is the The Catalyst: How to Change Anyone’s Mind by Jonah Berger.  I hope everyone is as excited to read this book as I am!

Everyone has something they want to change. Employees want to change their boss’ mind and leaders want to transform organizations. Salespeople want to win clients and marketers want to change consumer behavior.  Politicians want to change countries, startups want to revolutionize industries, and nonprofits want to change the world. But change is hard. We push and push, but often nothing happens. Could there be a better way?

The Catalyst introduces a revolutionary approach to change. Successful change isn’t about pushing harder or exerting more energy. It’s about removing barriers. Overcoming resistance by reducing friction and lowering the hurdles to action.  Discover the five hidden factors that impede change, and how by mitigating them, you can change anything.
