Without knowing how to implement sustainable change in your life, it can be hard to make changes stick. In fact, nine in ten people fail to make long-lasting changes to their working habits.​

Join us for a session on habit change and how you can set yourself up for success with longer-lasting lifestyle changes.​

We’ll take a look at the science of changing habits and why it’s so difficult. We’ll also run through some of the most popular and effective methods people use to make lasting change, including behavioural nudging and the WOOP framework, as used in our Hintsa coaching programmes.

Key topics: ​

  • Science of sustainable change – The intention / action gap and why change is so difficult​
  • Habits – What habits are and how to create them​
  • Behavioural nudging – Using the power of your physical and social environment to support change​
  • WOOP – Based on 20 years of research, the Wish-Objective-Obstacle-Plan framework is widely used and applied in e.g. Hintsa coaching programmes

Speaker: Eleonoora Hintsa

  • Master of Sport Sciences
  • Performance Coach at Hintsa Performance

"I’ve always been intrigued by the connection between wellbeing and performance potential. Before officially joining the Hintsa team, I applied the holistic wellbeing approach to competitive sports, as a head coach for synchronized figure skating, working with 6 teams, 120 athletes, age ranging from 4-60 years. During my Sports Science studies I focussed on the impact of physical activity on cognitive performance and was impressed by the brilliance of our body-mind interlink. Since, I have become increasingly fascinated to investigate the relation of wellbeing-factors and cognitive performance, something I urge to continue with in the long run.

Another topic I’m determined to cultivate is successful behavior change. Why is it often so difficult to turn good intentions into actions and lasting habits? This question I began to unravel in my Master’s Thesis. Turns out it’s a lot more complex than originally envisioned. Looking at modern world statistics on prevalence of noncommunicable disease, it seems evident we need to start doing things differently if we want to thrive as humankind.Working at Hintsa Performance has an explicit personal value for me as well. It means continuing the legacy of my father, Aki Hintsa. It’s sharing his passion to help people. To see sustainable change leading to better life now and in the future."
