What does it mean to truly change something? How does one persuade others to change? How do we reduce roadblocks to change? In this course, you’ll learn about the barriers to change and how to become more effective in inspiring change within others and your organization. Professor Jonah Berger of the Wharton School has designed this course to help you understand the REDUCE framework, and shows you how to develop your skills of persuasion and influence. By the end of this course, you’ll know both the strengths and weaknesses of certain strategies for removing barriers in change, plus you'll learn how to leverage those strategies to achieve change in both business and in life....




A great course on removing barriers to change and Professor Jonah Berger has an engaging way of delivering the course content. Unfortunately there are only two courses on here by Professor Berger.



Great course! I learned a lot that is applicable in my everyday work in sales and business development. I would recommend this course to anyone, even people that do not work in business.

Thank you, Professor Berger, for this absolutely brilliant course. Concise and very insightful. Why do people prefer to stick to the status quo and look for excuses to do so? Why do smokers usually ignore health messages but something changes if they have to explain the risks of smoking to someone else? If you want to know the answers to these and other fascinating questions, understand (oftentimes irrational!) human behaviour, and drive change, then this is simply a must.

this course was very insightful, giving me new perspective on how to tackle problems , how to recognise those problems, how to change those negative problems to positive

I began this course not very enthused about the topic as my thinking was how good could a canned lecture be as well as the overall topic didn't really sound all that exciting. I took the course because I am interested in the broader topic of change and was desiring to learn more but again, I started out with a negative attitude. I would like to say that this is one of the VERY best classes I have taken in my academic career. I have an MBA and the most interesting classes to me in graduate school were those that utilized a full array of presentation methods from PowerPoints to video and this class does exactly that.

The content was excellent, the real world examples made application of the material very easy to understand, the research data served to bolster the concept and the Professor was absolutely outstanding. His ability to deliver what was basically a speech with each section was second to none. He had amazing inflection and tone, facial expression, etc. I was blown away by the depth of the content as every piece of it could be utilized immediately. I would highly recommend this class to anyone interested in becoming better equipped to handle change within their environment. You will not be disappointed. In fact, you may end up being like me, looking forward to each session, which in my book, is the highest possible recommendation that can be made.

Nice, shortened lecture version of Jonah Berger's book, Catalyst. It's good if you're looking for a potentially faster summary of his book, but was lacking in rigor.

Amazing course, great teacher

Change management is not only a professional practice but a big curiosity for me. This course answered many questions that I had in my mind on understanding and removing the barriers. It also showed me where I potentially made mistakes during my career, so I learnt from them. As mentioned in the last module, this is a great source for politicians, change practitioners, partners, parents or corporates to understand barriers better and build their strategies to make successful change.

Very interesting examples and applications to the concepts of what is needed to make changes. It depends on the circumstances and what you are trying to change as to what you need to do to make a difference rather than just dictating the change and making employees follow in your footsteps. I have read a book by Jonah Berger and appreciated that he was teaching the class. He did a great job!

創建者 Robin S


This was a great course in the sense that it helped me frame common workplace challenges in more productive ways of assessing issues and strategizing solutions. Nothing here necessarily represents new or innovative thinking, but it does represent a level of deeper thinking that will help practitioners improve how they engage with others to support change (which is CONSTANT). Great course!

Prof Jonah Berger is an amazing instructor. He provides theories and then backs them up with excellent examples. I believe that this form of applied learning increases insight and understanding. I would readily take another course with him. I encourage people to take this course and purchase his books.

Thank you,

Excellent presentation. Very comprehensive and crisp. It certainly is a big help for people like me; novice change agent. Thank you for this course.

Excellent Professor, too! Very articulate, very expressive, and very considerate for others like me. Giving examples really helped a lot to understand the various concepts.

This was the best course I took from Coursera. I wish Professor Jonha offers other courses on change management. He is an excellent professor. He is generous for sharing the course materials with students. I hope Coursera will invite Professor Jonha to conduct other courses.

I like this. I work with many in many different countries and job roles. All have their own agenda and goals and one of my responsibilities is to get them to go along with programs or ideas that I will promote. This will help me understand on how to change their minds.

創建者 Sonal G


Love this course! I took it because I am very interested in change management. However I really recommend everyone to do this course. If you are tired of the push back you get (personal/ professional) this can really help how you approach and manage the situation.

創建者 James K


Am excellent course with great content and an engaging presenter. The material is easy to digest because of the way stories and examples are integrated into the delivery and it also includes practical approaches that can be used to apply the content.

Well constructed course and nicely presented. Very useful information with clear presentation. The speed of speech of the professor is impressive, for non English mother tongue speaker but the support PPT material helps ensure you got it all.
