How do you create the change you want? How do you get people to listen? Do you feel like you’re bashing your head against the wall? You can stop, there is an easier way. In this introductory lecture you will learn techniques from the behavioural sciences for facilitating behaviour change. We’ll start with an overview of the peer-reviewed research, including positive psychology and behavioural economics, then we’ll talk about solutions to the common change challenges you may be experiencing in your personal and professional lives. No more brain damage, just science and a lot of fun.
