Dan Heath on Upstream: The Quest to Solve Problems Before They Happen
Manage episode 306441179 series 2850782
In this episode, Dustin talks with Dan Heath about his book, Upstream: The Quest to Solve Problems Before They Happen.
You'll discover why we get stuck in the cycle of response, putting out fires, dealing with emergencies, handling one problem after another, and how to make our way upstream to fix the systems that cause the problems. In other words, you'll learn how to shift from reaction to prevention.
Dan encourages listeners to break free of the tunneling trap that forces us to stay in the short-term. He shares how to become an organization that learns and improves by embracing the systems thinking we need in order to perform more effectively and efficiently.
