What do you remember most about a recent family trip? According to Dan and Chip Heath in their book The Power of Moments, you remember a PEAK and an END and the rest is a bit mixed in together. This month’s podcast talks about the moments we grab onto, what makes them extraordinary, and how we can create powerful moments in our organizations to build a more engaging experience for everyone.
The Power of Moments by Dan and Chip Heath was summer reading for faculty this year. It’s a great book. Building meaningful moments is crucial to reaching and engaging our students and developing that curiosity and a lifelong love of learning we know is inherent to this unique educational environment. The Power of Moments relates to life beyond The Lexington School, too, which is why I highly recommend it for everyone in our community and why I am bringing it to you in this podcast. This podcast is about The Power of Moments and how we can strategically think about building lasting moments as part of every experience at The Lexington School, outside and inside the classroom. Powerful moments happen every day at TLS, so it wasn’t difficult to track down a few faculty from each division and have a little chat about the book and how they think about powerful moments in their classrooms. I think you will enjoy hearing what they have to say!
“Transitions should be marked, milestones commemorated, and pits filled. That’s the essence of thinking in moments.”― Chip Heath, The Power of Moments: Why Certain Moments Have Extraordinary Impact
