PROVO, UT -- (Marketwired) -- 09/06/13 -- If you're looking to change any kind of behavior in the home, then join New York Times bestselling author and behavior change expert Joseph Grenny for the sixth annual community date night at the Provo City Library on Friday, September 20.
Grenny will teach a model from his national bestseller Change Anything to help you, your spouse and your children overcome bad behaviors and develop new healthy and harmonious habits. Nurturing these good habits will strengthen families as well as the community.
At the community date night, attendees will learn how to:
- Escape the willpower trap. Those who fail to change falsely believe they lack willpower. More often, the problem is that their world is perfectly organized to support unhealthy behaviors.
- Be the scientist and the subject. Those who succeed develop and refine a unique change plan tailored to their needs.
- Turn bad days into good data. See why incremental learning far outweighs dramatic success.
- Use Six Sources of Influence. Learn how to make your values, skills, social circles, reward systems and environment work for you rather than against you.
"Everyone struggles to change behavior -- their own and others," says Grenny. "The good news is we don't have to. I'll teach a proven model for helping people change the influences around them that actually govern their behavior. Just by making simple changes to your personal values, social circles and environment, you can become exponentially more successful at kicking bad habits and shaping new, healthier ones."
This special community evening is supported by the United Way of Utah County and Provo-based training company, VitalSmarts. All proceeds will benefit the United Way of Utah County and its partners. Each couple who attends will also receive a copy of the New York Times bestseller, Change Anything: The New Science of Personal Success.
When: Friday, September 20, 2013 from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
Where: Provo City Library Grand Ballroom
550 North University Avenue
Provo, UT 84601
Cost: $7/person. All proceeds benefit the United Way of Utah County.
