How do we help people change? 

We all know people whose lives would be so much  better if only they would listen to our advice and change.

We all argue, criticize, and fight with parents, partners, lovesd ones and children who don’t do what we want them to because we believe that we know what’s best for them.  

But the truth is regardless of how well-meaning our motivations are, pushing others to change is never going to work.

But there is a secret biological key that will.

 In this episode, Richard Boyatzis explains the biological mechanisms that affect our ability to let go of btehaviors, habits, hought patterns, and addictions that don’t serve us, and open us up to  new ideas that create genuine, lasting change.
