How can you release harmful habits and foster beneficial ones? How can you influence the creation or ending of habits in others? Art Markman, Ph.D., shares insights from his new book Smart Change: Five Tools to Create New and Sustainable Habits in Yourself and Others.

The key to changing habits is leveraging the power of the brain rather than fighting against it. Only then can we bring lasting behavior changes into our lives and the lives of others. Dr. Markman provides real, accessible advice for change based on understanding how the habit system works. Building upon the insights explored in his earlier book Smart Thinking, Dr. Markman provides a deeper understanding of how to unleash the power of the mind.

Art Markman, Ph.D. is the Annabel Irion Worsham Centennial Professor of Psychology and Marketing at the University of Texas and founding director of the Human Dimensions of Organizations program there. Also the author of Habits of Leadership, he blogs regularly for Psychology Today, The Huffington Post, 99U and Harvard Business Review Online.
