  • How can smaller organizations outpunch their competition and grow with limited resources?

"Catalyst for Change"

Jonah Berger is a marketing professor at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and internationally bestselling author of Contagious, Invisible Influence, and The Catalyst. Jonah is a world-renowned expert on change, word of mouth, influence, consumer behavior, and how products, ideas, and behaviors catch on.

He’s also keynoted hundred of events, and often consults for organizations like Google, Apple, Nike, and the Gates Foundation.


What do you want to change?

Everyone has something they want to change. Marketers want to change customers’ minds and leaders want to change organizations. Startups want to change industries and non-profits want to change the world. But change is hard. We push and push, but often nothing happens. Could there be a better way? This book introduces a revolutionary approach to change. Successful change isn’t about pushing harder or exerting more energy. It’s about removing barriers. Overcoming resistance by reducing friction and lowering the hurdles to action. Discover the five hidden factors that impede change, and how by mitigating them, you can become a catalyst.
