How Psychological Science Can Help You Succeed in ANY Organization
March 3 | 3:30 pm - 4:45 pm EST
DESCRIPTIONS: Farms. Factories. Everything in between. They’re all organizations, or groups of people who work together for a common goal. For over a century, social-science researchers have tried to understand organizations to help them run better. In this workshop, you’ll have a chance to think about your own experience in organizations as a way of getting introduced to the interesting world of Industrial/Organizational Psychology. You can prepare by thinking about an organization–anything really, other than your family, which is a different matter! Come up with one or two examples of situations where something didn’t go as planned, where you are curious: could it have gone differently? We’ll use these examples to look at various topics within the world of “I/O Psychology.”
