5 No involvement— No ownership! No engagement— No commitment! No input— No output!

6 We are schizophrenics! Rider—logical, analytical Elephant—emotional, powerful Clocky! The Happiness Hypothesis

7 Successful change must address three factors... Mind—Is there a good reason? Does it make sense? Is there a first step? Is there a goal? Heart—Is it inspiring? Do you care? Will it make things better? Can we do it? Environment—Are there obstacles? Can we make it simpler? Can we make it automatic?

8 Switch by Chip and Dan Heath Direct the Rider—the thinking part— resistance is often a lack of clarity Motivate the Elephant—the emotions—laziness is often exhaustion, you need Elephant emotion to keep going Clear the Path—the environment—a people problem is often a situation problem, eliminate the road-blocks

9 Think about yourself You have a preferred “change style” Rider—logical, analyzer, critical, wary, subject to over think, big picture Elephant—emotional, loyal, traditional, easy-going, stubborn, defender of status quo, now focus Which are you?

My goal is to increase my students’ word identification to a class average of 3.0.
