Design Your Habits

Creating and Sustaining Productive Habits


Working with the Inter-American Development Bank in Washington D.C.

This workshop provides an overview of scientifically proven methods for meaningful, sustainable behavior change, and how to intelligently apply these methods to improve productivity, health, and wellbeing.

Drawing on lessons from behavioral science research, applied psychology, and persuasive technology, we train participants in how to break down their organizational, team, and individual goals into small, manageable habits, providing targeted feedback and guidance as they design a habit for themselves.

We conclude by providing recommendations on the best digital and analog tools for habit formation, and discussing other applications in a work context, including accountability and follow-through.

— Thomas Witt, Thomas Witt Consulting

"Simple, realistic advice/techniques, yet life-changing and very meaningful. Different approaches to habit forming than I've heard before. Highly recommended."
