10 Hacks for Successful Goal Setting and Goal Striving

People rarely wake up and spontaneously commit to initiating new behavior. Even when they do, few maintain new behaviors for long.  This interactive session will introduce a new evidenced-based individual change model (Enlighten, Encourage and Enable) to help trainers and coaches facilitate successful adoption and maintenance of new personal and professional habits and enhance learning transfer (Nowack, 2015; 2017). Participants will be introduced to 10 neuroscience research-based hacks to help successfully set, adopt, and maintain behavior-oriented goals organized along the two main neural pathways involved in both goal setting and maintaining momentum to keep up new behaviors until they become automatic referred to as the "Will" (executive functioning/task positive network) and the "Way" (default mode network).

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain the association between emotional hurt/rejection and physical pain
  • Describe two neural pathways associated with habit and behavior change
  • Identify three necessary conditions essential for successful individual behavior change over time
