Faculty Fall 2022 Book Discussion Group

Faculty Fall 2022 Book Discussion Group In-Person



What if a teacher could design a lesson that he knew his students would remember twenty years later?
What if a doctor or nurse knew how to orchestrate moments that would bring more comfort to patients?
What if you had a better sense of how to create memories that matter for your children?

In this latest bestseller by the authors of Switch and Made to Stick, Chip and Dan Heath explore why certain brief experiences can jolt, elevate and change us - and how we can learn to create such extraordinary moments in our own life and work.

Many of the defining moments in our lives are the result of accident or luck - but why leave our most meaningful, memorable moments to chance when we can create them?

In The Power of Moments, Chip and Dan Heath explore the stories of people who have created standout moments, from the owners who transformed an utterly mediocre hotel into one of the best-loved properties in Los Angeles by conjuring moments of magic for guests, to the scrappy team that turned around one of the worst elementary schools in the country by embracing an intervention that lasts less than an hour.
