Behaviour Bible : Chapter 2 (Verses 1-7)

Verses 1 - 7

The second chapter of the Behaviour Bible looks into the practicalities and processes of the actual consultation and how to make it as a behaviourist in the real world. Whilst the other two chapters teach content to a deeper level than other courses, this chapter covers elements often completely overlooked by many other providers—doing the actual job and running it as a successful business.
