Every CLC participant received a copy of “Beyond Measure: The Big Impact of Small changes.” Throughout the year, Dr. Emory will offer three opportunities to discuss the book, the connection CLC learnings, and how small changes occurring throughout our district are creating impact. The goal is to continue our collaboration beyond the CLC and reflect on the continued development of our organization. The book discussions will occur from 5:00-6:30pm at the WS/FCS Education Building on the following dates:
In Beyond Measure, Margaret Heffernan looks back over her decades spent overseeing different organizations and comes to a counterintuitive conclusion: it’s the small shifts that have the greatest impact. Heffernan argues that building the strongest organization can be accelerated by implementing seemingly small changes, such as embracing conflict as a creative catalyst; using every mind on the team; celebrating mistakes; speaking up and listening more; and encouraging time off from work.
Packed with incredible anecdotes and startling statistics, Beyond Measure takes us on a fascinating tour across the globe, highlighting disparate businesses and revealing how they’ve managed to change themselves in big ways through incremental shifts. How did the CIA revolutionize their intelligence gathering with one simple question? How did one organization increase their revenue by $15 million by instituting a short coffee break? How can a day-long hackathon change the culture of a company? Told with wry wit and knowing humor, Heffernan proves that it’s often the small changes that make the greatest, most lasting impact.
