Problem Blindness: Dan Heath About His New Book and Upstream Thinking
Dan Heath is a New York Times best-selling author previously known for his work as one-half of the Heath Brothers. In his first solo book, Upstream: The Quest to Solve Problems Before They Happen, Heath explores the concept of “Upstream Thinking,” and identifies barriers like tunneling, problem blindness, and a lack of ownership. Upstream Thinking could be as simple as purchasing a second power cord, or scheduling time to go on a walk. Whatever the outcome is, upstream thinking helps us avoid problems and save time.Upstream: The Quest to Solve Problems Before They Happen by Dan HeathIrving ZolaMarcus ElliottCommunity Aging in Place—Advancing Better Living for Elders (CAPABLE)Anita Tucker
#213 How to Intentionally Create Extraordinary Moments for Your Athletes with NYT Bestselling Author Dan Heath
Way of Champions Podcast
Every once in a while we do a flashback to an oldie but goodie from the archives, and we decided to do that this week because it was spring break here in Oregon, and I was headed out with some friends to tech free cabin up by Mt Rainier in Washington, and I realized last second I needed a book to read. So I grabbed one off the shelf that I had not read in quite a while, yet it is one I talk about at almost every single presentation I do. It is called The Power of Moments by Chip and Dan Heath, and this book is truly required reading for coaches. Why? Everyone has these defining moments in their lives that they vividly recall. But these moments are not an accident. Science actually tells us which type of moments people are most likely to remember in any experience. Some are extraordinary and some are terrible. As coaches, we do not get to choose which moments our athletes recall, but we do get to choose the moments we create in order to ensure what we leave our athletes with are exceptionally positive moments. Dan Heath joins us on the podcast to discuss how these moments arise and how we can help create them. This episode originally aired back in November 2017, but it is so good I wanted to replay it for you this week. Bio Dan Heath is a Senior Fellow at Duke University’s CASE center, which supports social entrepreneurs. At CASE, he founded the Change Academy, a program designed to boost the impact of social sector leaders. Dan is the co-author, along with his brother Chip, of three New York Times bestsellers: Decisive, Switch, and Made to Stick. Their new book, The Power of Moments, was my favorite book of 2017. Amazon.com’s editors named Switch one of the Best Nonfiction Books of the Year, and it spent 47 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller list. Made to Stick was named the Best Business Book of the Year and spent 24 months on the BusinessWeek bestseller list. Their books have been translated into over 30 languages. Previously, Dan worked as a researcher and case writer for Harvard Business School. In 1997, Dan co-founded an innovative publishing company called Thinkwell, which continues to produce a radically reinvented line of college textbooks. Highlights Dan’s new book Power of Moments and how we are all defined by special moments “Wise Criticism” when high standards and assurance are used in feedback The tightrope of being a mentor/coach who allows players to take risks What have you failed at this week? The quest to find Peak Moments The Magic Castle – An “average” motel with Overwhelming experiences Transitions – the importance of the “first day experience” The FOUR qualities of defining moments The profound obligation of a coach to “get these moments right” The Tarantula study How do you create more moments of pride in sport?

Book Review - Upstream: The Quest to Solve Problems Before They Happen by Dan Heath
Learning Experience Leader
From the website for the book, "So often in life, we get stuck in a cycle of response. We put out fires. We deal with emergencies. We stay downstream, handling one problem after another, but we never make our way upstream to fix the systems that caused the problems. Cops chase robbers, and doctors treat patients with chronic diseases, and call-center reps address customer complaints. But crime and chronic disease and customer complaints are preventable! So why do our efforts skew so heavily toward reaction rather than prevention?"In summarizing and reflecting on the book I'll cover: 👉 The three barriers to upstream thinking and how to start overcoming them👉 7 questions to ask yourself when trying to solve upstream challenges👉 Reflection on ways instructional and learning experience designers can be more like systems designers in helping organizations realize their goalsResources👉 Book information and helpful resourcesIntroduction music, “For Mimi” by Twin Musicom is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 license Check out the artistSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/lxleader)

Book Review of Upstream: The Quest to Solve Problems Before They Happen by Dan Heath
Things That Make You Go Hmmm Book Review Podcast
Most of us spend our days handling a deluge of pressing issues. We’re so accustomed to managing emergencies as they strike that we often don’t stop to think about how we could prevent crises before they happen. Why stop at treating the symptoms when you could develop a cure? How many daily headaches do we tolerate because we’ve forgotten to fix them?Whether it’s time management, supply chain logistics, or healthcare decisions, all over the world, persistent problems cost time, money, and lives. Upstream explains how to target the source of the problem rather than just reacting to it as it happens and introduces you to the thinkers who are chipping away at everyday frustrations and deep-rooted issues. One travel company saved 25 million customer phone calls every year by adding a simple step to its booking system. An insurance business, determined to help YMCAs across the country lower their number of accidental drownings to zero, has saved an untold number of lives. The LAPD track down more accurate addresses for suspects by buying access to the delivery data from local pizza shops. The CDC realized they could anticipate flu outbreaks by tracking thermometer sales in local pharmacies.
