Employees who understand the science behind personal change:
  • Accelerate their careers
  • Secure their job
  • Save struggling relationships
  • Lose weight, get fit and stick with it
  • Become financially stable
  • Break free of addictions

That's because no problem is purely a personal problem. Research shows most people have a personal challenge that drags down their work performance by as much as 50 percent.

To help individuals overcome years of failed change efforts, the authors and researchers of the New York Times bestseller, Influencer, have embarked on their largest study of personal influence to date.  They studied the struggles, strategies, trials and triumphs of 5,000 people looking to make big changes. Whether hoping to get a promotion, lose weight, increase sales, or get off drugs, the select few who achieved their goals used the same basic influence strategies- strategies from which the authors distilled a new science of personal change.

In this engaging presentation, participants will learn to make long-anticipated improvements in their lives, careers and relationships by applying three breakthrough principles to any challenge.

1. Escape the willpower trap. Those who fail falsely believe they lack willpower. More often, the problem is that they are blind and outnumbered to the many sources of influence shaping their behavior.

2. Be the scientist and the subject. Those who succeed develop and refine a completely unique theory of change tailored to their individual needs.

3. Turn bad days into good data. The successful few care less about dramatic success than they do about incremental learning.
