" Finally, we get to the heart of the issue!" | "A great book for permanent changes in your life"

Description


Right Weight, Right Mind is written for individuals who want to lose weight and maintain their weight loss. It is not a diet book; it is a book about how to change your mind. Written by three Harvard-trained, adult-developmental psychologists, the book takes readers by the hand to first show them a personalized picture of how their mind is getting in the way of accomplishing what they want. This is a picture of the immunity to change. Written in a conversational style, the authors gently remind the reader that developing the “right mind” takes time and targeted practice. They provide clear directions for how readers can engage a series of exercises, all designed to help them shift their focus from “right behavior” to “right mind” so that they can overturn their immune system and accomplish their improvement goals in a matter of months. The book is filled with stories of real people who courageously took the journey of changing their mind, changing their weight, and changing their lives

Description:

From the Harvard website:

Robert Kegan is a psychologist who teaches, researches, writes, and consults about adult development, adult learning, and professional development. His work explores the possibility and necessity of ongoing psychological transformation in adulthood; the fit between adult capacities and the hidden demands of modern life; and the evolution of consciousness in adulthood and its implications for supporting adult learning, professional development, and adult education. In addition to his faculty appointment at HGSE, Kegan serves as educational chair of the Institute for Management and Leadership in Education; as co-director of a joint program with the Harvard Medical School to bring principles of adult learning to the reform of medical education; and as co-director of the Change Leadership Group, a program for the training of change leadership coaches for school and district leaders. Kegan, a licensed clinical psychologist and practising therapist, lectures widely to professional and lay audiences, and consults in the area of professional development. “I have been told,” he says, “it may help to know that I am also a husband and a father; influenced by Hasidism; an airplane pilot; a poker player; and the unheralded inventor of the ‘Base Average,’ a more comprehensive way of gauging a baseball player’s offensive contributions.”
