2018 Session | Transform Your Working Life: The Science Behind How to Have a Good Day

Whether we have a good day or not depends partly on things we can’t control – perhaps we run into an unexpected crisis, or our colleagues seem unusually cranky. But behavioral science shows us that many things that seem “fixed” or “random” can be surprisingly strongly influenced by our own actions, once we understand just a little of how the brain works. Caroline Webb, economist and former partner at consulting powerhouse McKinsey, will demonstrate how tiny tweaks to our daily routines can transform our experience of what happens around us, the number of hours in the day, our level of intelligence, and even other people’s moods. She will teach you to be at your best under pressure, equipping you to handle common challenges such as co-worker conflicts and pressing deadlines. Learn how to change your “luck” and obtain more control over the quality of your days. You will leave armed with the power to transform your approach for boosted workplace performance and enjoyment.
