‘Katy Milkman shows in this book that we can all be a super human’ Angela Duckworth, bestselling author of Grit
How to Change is a powerful, groundbreaking blueprint to help you – and anyone you manage, teach or coach – to achieve personal and professional goals, from the master of human nature and behaviour change and Choiceology podcast host Professor Katy Milkman.
Award-winning Wharton Professor Katy Milkman has devoted her career to the study of behaviour change. An engineer by training, she approaches all challenges as problems to be solved and, with this mind-set, has drilled into the roadblocks that prevent us from achieving our goals and breaking unwanted behaviours. The key to lasting change, she argues, is not to set ever more audacious goals or to foster good habits but to get your strategy right.
