Methods for Creating and Sustaining Positive Habits (NWI04)

This course takes a deep-dive into methods of influence that can be used to create and sustain new habits. Each method is explained in detail, including how it can be applied, other methods with which it works well, case studies of it applied in practice and lists for further reading or watching.

However, if you are an effective change agent, this course will provide you with a rich resource of ideas and initiatives that you can deploy to become even more effective at creating a change-ready environment.
