2016 Session | Strategies to Transform Your Working Life and 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 us you to be at your best even under pressure, and equip you to handle common challenges such as co-worker conflicts and difficult deadlines. With this kind of powerful insight in your back pocket, you can change your “luck” and obtain more control over the quality of your days. Attendees will leave armed with the power to transform their approach to every day working life for boosted workplace performance and enjoyment.

Speaker: Caroline Webb, economist, author and former partner, McKinsey
