The Habit Course

The habit course is a 5 week immersive learning experience designed to equip participants with the skills and knowledge required to build and maintain new habits. Out of your participation in the course, you will be able to:

Identify

effective and ineffective habits that will provide you access to elevated performance.

Design

new habits that are consistent with the realization of your goals and commitments.

Build

your capacity to sustain and regulate habits of your choosing.

Apply

the habit lens to engage more effectively with yourself and others.

 

 

 

Why Habits Matter

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit. - Aristotle

 

Habits are everywhere and constitute a huge, and often hidden, aspect of our lives.

In fact, a study at Duke University showed that over 40% of the actions we take are not due to conscious decisions, but habits.

We believe this is a massive opportunity for creating sustainable changes in behaviour and empowering people to effectively reach their goals. We have designed the Habit Course to directly address this and put participants on the right pathway. And, we invite you to join us in doing so with a group of people: it’s more effective and much more fun.

  • What if you could rework your morning routine to best suit what you’re up to?
  • Do you have any un-helpful habits that you want to get rid of?
  • Is there a habit you’ve tried to implement and failed?
  • What if you actually fulfilled on your New Year’s resolutions?

Course Overview and Design

The purpose of the Habit Course is to enable you to create new habits that allow you to achieve goals that matter to you.

Design

We have used the most recent developments in adult education in designing the Habit Course, grounding ourselves in sound research-based principles of good teaching. This allowed us to create a course that goes way beyond providing our participants with mere information but rather an integral experience that invites each participant to revisit themselves and their habits.

The course is designed around four core elements:

Theory

You will have access to the most recent and cutting edge developments in neuroscience and cognitive psychology without having to immerse yourself in its literature.

Practice

You will engage in research-based tested activities and practices which give you the biggest leverage point to create and maintain new habits. 

Mindfulness

You will learn how to bring awareness to unconscious habits and strengthen your willpower, dramatically expanding your abilities to take new actions in your life.  

Reflection

 You will unearth blindspots and integrate new knowledge with previous beliefs, giving you a brand new look at yourself and your life.

Format

The course is held over five weeks. Each week includes a 2½ hour session lead by two co-facilitators. Sessions are highly engaging, interactive and fun. In between sessions, you will work on your habits, implementing what you learned in class. Each participant is assigned a partner and responsible to hold each other accountable.

  • 5 weeks course
  • weekly 2½ hour sessions

  • weekly habit practice

Testimonials

  • Finally working on something that I have been putting off for YEARS and seeing a result over the 5 weeks of the course is really great!

    Past participant
  •  Unlike any other course I’ve taken, the Habit Course put me in a safe environment and challenged me to think and approach myself differently. I discovered how habits can get me where I want to be.  

    Past participant
  • When is the last time you did something for the first time? When is the last time you felt vulnerable and took a chance?

    Past Participant
  • Take the Habit Course as soon as you can. If you put the effort in , this course will be amongst the most important courses you take in your life. The amount of growth you experience in such a short period of time is amazing. This class gave me the tools and support system to build the habits that will ultimately lead me to live the life I want to live.
