How to Change Bad Habits – Improvisations – MIT Sloan Management Review.

This article summarizes some insights first discussed in the book “Influencer: the power to change anything.”  They say that the following principles will help habits change in a workplace.  It is a nice list to read in comparison with the Oprah’s article on neuroscience and habit change.

1. Linking to mission and values
2. Overinvesting in skill building
3. Harnessing peer pressure
4. Creating social support
5. Aligning rewards and ensuring accountability
6. Changing the environment
