Carefully prepare people for news about change and avoid negative primes

Priming refers to the use of subconscious influence to affect people’s perceptions of information. Imagery, verbiage, video, emojis and even scents and tastes can act as primes. For example, when a bakery allows the smells of fresh bread and cookies to waft out onto the sidewalk, they’re priming people to think about purchasing baked goods. A well-chosen prime can place people in a receptive frame of mind for a proposed change, while the wrong prime can make them rebel.

“Change doesn’t have to be hard, but it does take thoughtfulness, consistency and focus.”
