How to Sustain Motivation and Achieve Lasting Change
The new year is upon us, and for many the desire to make positive change is beginning to brew. The idea of change can be confusing, difficult, and anxiety provoking. However, implementing change can be rewarding, empowering, and exciting. Join this reward-eligible webinar to learn how to use the five stages of change to identify and track your progress, the role motivation plays in achieving positive change, defense mechanisms and their role in sabotaging motivation, and new ways to implement lasting change.
