Habits are our brain's go to tool to tackle almost any goal or task, which is why helping your clients get in the driver's seat of their habit-making machinery can be a game changer.
Participants will walk away with everything you need to help your clients know to start making measurable change. Just like learning how to play the piano, learning how to form positive habits is a skill set. Attendees will learn concrete strategies and habit-building systems that will de-mystify why habit-building and behavior change are so hard, and how you can help your client overcome their internal obstacles. In the presentation, we will:
-Start with conversation around habits -- why they matter, why your brain automatically creates them.
-Move into the basics of neuroplasticity and how the brain rewires itself.
-Introduce challenges the brain has with motivation and willpower
-Have a discussion about the five top reasons why mini-habits are such a powerful tool.
-Have participants experience making their own habit-tracking system to use in their own habits that they want to create.
-Have participants bring up specific situations where they're trying to coach a client through behavior change and workshop the challenges.
Key Learning Objectives:
- Participants will be able to walk their clients through a habit planning process and be their guide as they flexibly implement the plan.
- Participants will receive a deep understanding of the latest science of behavior change, including the neuroscience behind such change as well as how to support their clients through the setbacks and obstacles of the first two months of habit implementation.
- They'll also walk away with the ability to help their clients apply concrete tools in their life such as habit tracking, habit stacking, and how implementing new evidence-based tools to break bad habits such as "Adding Friction" and "Habit Substitution" will increase their clients' skills and confidence at effectively changing their own behaviors.CCEUs to be issues- 1 Core Competencies and .5 Resource Development
