The Science of Willpower
Making Change Easier!

Willpower allows us to overcome inertia and procrastination, avoid temptation, and achieve our long-term goals while living our values. Evidenced-based strategies make change easier!

Next Cohort: March 2023!

Willpower is a battle between competing parts of ourselves.

The part that wants what's best for us in the long run,

The part that wants to live in the moment.

The part that's exhausted and just wants to relax

The part that has big dreams

The part that has too much on its plate already

The part that wants acceptance and belonging

"This course gives you a leap in knowledge about yourself and others. Amazingly, my focus has had a ripple effect into other areas. What an unexpected surprise. Willpower is contagious. I can catch willpower the same way I catch laughter. Willpower does not need to be difficult. I can ease and joy in change."

"I worked with Lisa a year ago. I have continued to apply what I learned to my everyday choices (from passing up fast food and junk foods to starting and sticking with a regular exercise routine and realizing when to say 'no'). Lisa is a caring coach and very knowledgeable on the subject."

Dorese B., Senior Project Analyst,  Wholesale Distribution

"The questions and assignments she gave helped me dig deeper and answer honestly about my true goals and values. If you are struggling to accomplish something and need motivation and direction for your path, The Science of Willpower is for you. It offers a concrete timeline, and Lisa keeps you accountable, helping you make strides while growing in ways you might not have imagined."
