Improving your leadership impact through the science of behavior.

Success in today’s competitive business world requires leaders who create positive environments and earn the discretionary effort of those around them—leaders who understand and can apply the science of behavior in the workplace. 

This 4.5-day workshop is a transformative experience designed for managers, supervisors, team leaders and other change agents. It provides an in-depth understanding of the science of behavior, behavioral tools for addressing important workplace challenges, and a strategy for problem solving that allows participants to adjust what they do to maximize impact. It will change the way you manage people.

  • Capturing Discretionary Effort: Using positive reinforcement to bring out the best in others and build engagement.
  • Uncovering Natural Reinforcement: Tapping into natural reinforcers so that gains are sustained over time.
