Setting expectations, directing, delegating, enforcing policy.

If you’ve been doing the same thing and not getting anywhere, listen to this webcast for new techniques that tap into the human psyche. Because understanding the root reasons of human behavior allows you to make different choices about how you manage and what kind of results you get.

Thought, behavior, personality — all three affect everything from having a preference for a particular employee to how often you voice your opinions in a group.

In this webcast, Dr. Boyce will give you a quick overview of three major schools of psychology—behavioral, cognitive and social — and give you insights into each one. So you can heighten your self-awareness and increase your effectiveness as a manager.

What You Will Learn

  • Behavioral Psychology: what truly motivates human behavior— including four universal needs that are at the core of all human decisions
  • Cognitive Psychology: why people perceive different things from the same physical reality and how to get everyone on the right page
  • Social Psychology: individual performance within the group and how to use this to your advantage
  • How to use psychology to be a better motivator

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
