Tiny Habits of Student Success

One size does not fit all! Understanding human behavior is key to designing and creating habits for student success. During this workshop, participants focus on behaviors that have the biggest impact on creating successful learning experiences. Participants learn and apply a simple and empirically proven method of behavior change that creates a powerful learning environment. They also learn the power of habit design and a step-by-step process for creating tiny habits. In addition, participants create actionable habit recipes applicable to students, faculty, and staff.

The workshop is based on Dr. BJ Fogg’s Tiny Habits: The Small Changes That Change Everything, which has recently been named by Amazon editors as the number one book on leadership and business. All participants receive a complimentary five-day Tiny Habits course, which includes a daily email from a trained and certified Tiny Habits Coach.
