free online coaching course
An effective, 12 month accountability program

Are you committed to acquiring a new habit or making a change in lifestyle? This course draws on the latest in motivational science and neuroscience. It gets you started on something you want to be doing. You’ll adopt a new habit, overcome procrastination and increase self-control.

People take on a project that involves weekly actions. It can be anything, but typically, business-building, regular exercise, diet change or study. Then once a week – accountability – everyone reports on how they went.

You’ll have access to two 90 minute sessions:

Explore Happiness – where you work out what you want
Motivational Science – where you learn how to be reliable

Then you’ll send weekly reports and get coaching where needed.

Explore happiness

The epistemology of the course is positive psychology. And the truth of the matter is that almost nobody knows what they want in life. Explore Happiness is a structure for working it out.

  • Play – What do you like doing/what comes easy to you? 
  • Help – What are you contributing that’s of value?
  • Move – When exercising we experience vitality and we notice friction. We notice we’re alive.
  • Belong – A shared activity/interest/ordeal

Motivational science

The epistemology of the course is behaviour science and neuroscience but all content is understandable; often humorous. Suitable for anyone 13 years or older.

  • What causes action – It’s not knowledge.
  • Extrinsic vs intrinsic motivation – They’re good for different things.
  • Money as an influence on behaviour
  • Loss aversion – Why risk works better than reward
  • How dopamine works – It’s not the reward that counts.
  • Overcoming normal resistance

A twelve month program that holds you accountable for a new habit or lifestyle change.
