How To Get People To Do Stuff

Whether you have a product that you want someone to buy, a charity that you want someone to donate to, or a community that you want people to join, getting people to take action means you have to understand the psychology of motivation and behavior. You want people to sign-up, donate, fund a project, clean up, work independently, and/or get along with others. Whether it is a co-worker, employee, or a customer, how do you get people to do stuff? Based on her latest book of the same name, in this one-day, interactive and intensive workshop, Dr Weinschenk teaches about behavioral psychology and how to apply these powerful principles to get people to do stuff.
