The last of the 3-part change process is “How to Jumpstart a Stalled Change”
We wish we knew why.
In fact, for decades, researchers dug into the “why” question. After all the things we put in place to make change happen, “Why didn’t it always happen? What caused the “stall outs?”
Finally, an obscure researcher in the psychology department of a major university studied the exact same problem: “Why is it, that people who strongly intend to change, rarely actually do change?” Check out this list of “intended” changes:
- Lose weight and more importantly, keep the weight off
- Quit a nasty habit (smoking, gambling, domestic abuse, etc.)
- Be a better parent or spouse (kinder, more loving and argue less)
- Implement a strategy in the classroom to help students learn
We all start with good intentions.
But what was the discovery? First, it was so simple, it was ingenious. As proof, this professor has won the prestigious Max Planck Research Award and developed multiple models that help change agents foster FAR greater degree of success. Now, why is his research so valuable to us, as educators?
First, he did NONE of his research in a lab. It was all done with real people in the real world in their everyday situations and jobs. Second, he is no “ivory professor. He is the “Columbus of Change,” a pioneer that his colleagues revere.
Here’s what he figured out…
Most of the time when people don’t make the change that they intended to change, there’s only one reason. Sure, people give you all kinds of other reasons (will power or “It was other person’s fault” are the two cited most often), but his research shows just one reason. That’s it!
I show you how to take that one reason and absolutely crush it with one single simple evidence-based strategy that he suggested AND everyone can do—in just 5 minutes! How good is this one insight and tool?
This pioneer’s one strategy increased success in the implementation of change by a whopping 72%!
Can you imagine a school staff learning that from your trainings?
Now you can practically give your trainings a guarantee of success!
