Making Resolutions Stick
Tuesday, January 30, 2018
As change practitioners, we know
the reinforcement techniques needed
to make change “stick.” As change
leaders, we also know that we, too,
have a significant role to play
in embodying the behaviors we espouse.
Earlier this month, we shared with
you the ways ACMP can help you turn your resolutions into action.
We encourage you to make change
stick through growing your network,
continuing your education and being
an active ACMP member!
