A paradigm-shifting, instant classic in the making that challenges our assumptions about change by encouraging us to understand and embrace our resistance to it. We all have something we want to change about ourselves. But whether it's quitting smoking, losing weight, or breaking some common bad habit or negative behaviour pattern, we feel a sense of failure when we don't succeed. This often sets off a cascade of negative feelings and discouragement, making it even harder to change. The voice in our head tells us: Why bother? Successful change depends far more on understanding why we don't change, psychotherapist and sociologist Ross Ellenhorn insists. His decades-long career as a pioneer in helping people overcome extreme psychiatric experiences and problematic substance use issues - especially those whom the behavioural healthcare system has failed - especially those whom the mental healthcare system has failed - has lead him to develop an effective, long-term method to achieve transformation, from the simplest shifts to the most profound. In How We Change, Ellenhorn looks to the evolutionary imperatives driving us. We are wired to double down on the familiar because of what he calls the Fear of Hope - the act of protecting ourselves from further disappointment. He identifies the '10 Reasons Not to Change' to help us see why we behave the way we do, making it clear that there is nothing broken inside us - it's how we're built. By addressing this little known reality, he gives us hope and helps us work toward the change we seek. Ellenhorn speaks to the core of our insecurities and fears about ourselves, with a humour and kindness. By turning our judgements about self-destructive behaviours into curious questions about them, he teaches us to think about our actions to discover what we truly want - even if we're going about getting it in the wrong way. How We Change is a brilliant approach that will forever alter our perspective and help us achieve the transformation we truly seek.

Many of us are familiar with the tension between wanting to change a behavior pattern and the seeming impossibility of making that change. Whether you're trying to quit smoking, struggling over a diet, or attempting to abstain from another any number of bad habits or negative behavior patterns, we often feel a sense of failure when we don't succeed in making the shift to more positive ones. This often sets off a cascade of bad feelings and discouragement, making it even harder to change. The voice in our head tells us: Why bother? Ross Ellenhorn's approach will forever change our relationship to change. His decades-long career as a pioneer in helping people overcome addiction and psychiatric disorders-especially those for whom the mental healthcare system has failed them-has helped him to develop an effective, long-term method to approach change from the simplest shifts to the most profound. Ellenhorn argues that only by understanding the powerful pull to stay the same, can we begin to make the steps towards change. The problem isn't that we lack the right skills or knowledge to achieve the changes we want to make; instead, successful change depends on our understanding of why we don't change rather than on learning some new strategy to change. The tendency to stay the same is often based on evolutionary coping mechanisms that mess with our greater reasoning about wanting to change. Ellenhorn addresses the 10 Reasons Not to Change and in doing so, he helps us to understand the logic of staying the same, rather than believing our resistance to change is something that is broken inside of us. In HOW WE CHANGE, Dr. Ellenhorn brings his decades of clinical experience and his research on Fear of Hope together to help readers understand the beauty and vunerability inherent both in trying to make a change and staying the same. Ellenhorn speaks to the core of our insecurities and fears about ourselves, both soothing and encouraging the reader. He approaches difficult ideas, like the existential nature of change and fear of failure, with a humor and kindness that will draw readers in and allow them to confront, and ultimately accept, the parts of themselves that keep them from making a change. HOW WE CHANGE is a brilliant and counterintuitive approach that will forever shift our perspective on how to make important and positive changes in our lives by first accepting our resistance to it.

During the 2015 federal election, the Liberal Party pledged that, if elected, they would end the “first past the post” electoral system, where whichever candidate receives the most votes wins a riding even if they have not received a majority of all votes cast. In early 2017, the Liberals reneged on their campaign promise, declaring that there was a lack of public consensus about how to reform the system. Despite the broken promise – and because of the public outcry – discussions about electoral reform will continue around the country. Challenging the idea that first past the post is obsolete, Should We Change How We Vote? urges Canadians to make sure they understand their electoral system before making drastic changes to it. The contributors to this volume assert that there is perhaps no institution more misunderstood and misrepresented than the Canadian electoral system – praised by some for ensuring broad regional representation in Ottawa, but criticized by others for allowing political parties with less than half the popular vote to assume more than half the seats in Parliament. They consider not only how the system works, but also its flaws and its advantages, and whether or not electoral reform is legitimate without a referendum. An essential guide to the crucial and ongoing debate about the country’s future, Should We Change How We Vote? asks if there are alternative reforms that would be easier to implement than a complete overhaul of the electoral system.

“This book completely changed the way I think about creative innovation. . . . A must read” (Cal Newport, bestselling author of Deep Work). Business leaders say they want creativity and need real innovation in order to thrive. But according to startling research from management professor Jennifer Mueller, these same leaders chronically reject creative solutions, even as they profess commitment to innovation. Mueller’s research reveals that it’s not just CEOs but educators, parents, and other social trendsetters who struggle to accept new and creative ideas. Mueller parses the tough questions that these findings raise. Do we all have an inherent prejudice against creative ideas? Can we learn to outsmart this bias? Creative Change combines analysis of the latest research with practical guidance on how to shift your mindset, and offers a wealth of counterintuitive recommendations to help you embrace the creative ideas you want. “If we all crave creativity so much, why do we reject new ideas so often? Jen Mueller’s smart new book unravels this puzzle.” —Daniel H. Pink, New York Times–bestselling author of When and Drive “Mueller, an accomplished scholar in the management field, has developed a well-formulated argument for creativity. Her ideas and research need to be available to academics, business practitioners, and, really, everyone.” —Library Journal

Community organizers work at their jobs because they are passionate, because they believe that change is possible, and because they enjoy working with people. Although it's not an occupation that leads to great wealth, community organizers can make a living at it. They get salaries, pensions and health insurance. They raise families. They do well by doing good. This book explores the world of community organizing through the voices of real people working in the field, in small towns and city neighborhoods--women and men of different races and economic backgrounds, ranging in age from those in their twenties to those in their sixties. Fourteen in-depth profiles tell the life stories of a cross-section of the diverse people who choose the life of an organizer. Other chapters, focused on issues of organizing, are tapestries of experience woven from the 81 interviews the authors conducted.

This is a book about making change palatable, effective and appropriate. With a focus on doing away with large scale overhauls and replacing them with small, incremental tweaks, it challenges the way change programmes often unfold. Through a series of independent chapters, the book explores how and why we need to become more accepting of and comfortable with bite-size change, rather than feeling the pressure to go large. It is filled with useful tools and techniques for evaluating change, introducing change, and managing change; as well as suggesting some important small changes we need to make to the way we run our organisations in the third decade of the twenty-first century.

We need a better vision for saving the world. Across the world, people like you are rising up to fight poverty, oppression, and injustice—not just professionals, but bloggers, musicians, entrepreneurs, artists, and advocates. People who refuse to accept the world as it is, who dare to believe change is possible. But we face a crisis of vision. We sense what needs to be done, but often we don’t know how to do it. Without a better blueprint for doing good well, our moment in history will slip away. Stephan Bauman, president of World Relief believes true change begins in the hearts and actions of ordinary people. In Possible, he presents clear and biblical thinking, powerful stories, and practical tools for sustainably impacting our workplaces, neighborhoods, villages, and cities. Possible is an eloquent and personal call to reconsider what it means to change ourselves so that we can change the world.

From the UK's foremost literary psychoanalyst, a dazzling new book on the universal urge to change our lives. We live in a world in which we are invited to change - to become our best selves, through politics, or fitness, or diet, or therapy. We change all the time - growing older and older - and how we think about change changes over time too. We want to think of our lives as progress myths - as narratives of positive personal growth - at the same time as we inevitably age and suffer setbacks. So there are the stories we tell about change, and there are the changes we actually make - and they don't always go, or come, together . . . This sparkling book is about that fact.
