What Behavioural Science can tell us about Motivation, Distractions, Stress, and Elephants
Jon MacConnell will briefly take us through his journey from Calgary to the oilfields of South Texas and across the pond to study Behavioural Science at the London School of Economics. His main presentation will be focused on what Behavioural Science can tell us about why we are so easily distracted when looking for work, and why sometimes, it even feels impossible to get started. This will be followed by some simple techniques that can be used to create small wins and increase our engagement in what can be a difficult process (especially now).
Jon MaCConnell is a behavioural scientist and engineer with over twenty-four years of experience in energy, technology, and consulting. His research is on unemployment, and volunteerism, with a focus on approach and avoidance.
