The Habit Design® MasterClass

Course Code: 2469

Getting great at anything – from your personal wellbeing, stress management, work performance, relationships, finances – requires strong habits.

Yet, ever wonder, if conventional wisdom says it takes only “21 days to create a habit”, why 80% of resolutions fail after just two months? The reason: Science tells us that creating new habits actually takes months, but our grit, motivation, and enthusiasm burn out way before then. You can’t rely on just motivation.

Developed by pioneering research scientists from Harvard, Yale, Stanford, and the University of Washington, the Habit Design® MasterClass is the only habit training clinically proven to create new habits in just nine days. As the first and only habit training backed by the National Institutes of Health, this course covers twenty clinically proven methods for accelerating new habits and is highly personalized to each participant’s specific objectives, needs, and preferences.

Habit Design® is the exclusive habit training for the Association of Talent Development, American Psychological Association, Association of Change Management Professionals, and over 500 companies, organizations, and agencies. Over 100,000 employees have applied this training to successfully creating over 1 million new habits.

This course includes an optional FREE 10-day trial of one-on-one Habit Design® Coaching to ensure you’re successful in integrating the lessons of the course into your daily life: 97% of participants have successfully done so to date.
