Evidence-Based Leadership:
Using Behavioral Science to Influence Other Leaders
with Thomas E. (TED) Boyce, Ph.D.

With learning programs and professional development, what's more challenging to achieve and produces more ROI?
  • Knowledge transfer, or...
  • Behavioral change?
ANSWER: Behavioral change

This meeting is all about empowering you to influence positive behavioral change that will greatly improve the quality of your training and professional development programs.

The application of behavioral science to change leaders' behaviors is not common, but it should be. Typically, companies that have embraced this approach experience dramatic, system-wide cultural changes that improve all aspects of their operation.

ROI Examples
  • Increased productivity
  • improved quality
  • Enhanced safety
  • Improved employee moral
This talk will review the basic tenets of human motivation, introduce the Evidence-Based LeadershipTM  Model, work through a hypothetical example, and conclude with 6 scientifically-validated  principles  of  persuasion  that  can  be  used  to  jump  start  the  behavior change you want.  By the end of this session you will see your role as a leader differently and be able to use some practical tools necessary to fulfill this newly defined role.    Attend only if you want to make a difference now!
