Have you found yourself asking this question: why do people DO what they do?
Are you rewarding the wrong behaviors?
Human Factors are the environmental, organizational, individual characteristics and job factors which influence behavior at work in a way that can impact health and safety.
This session will introduce you to the influences that impact human behavior and explore how to use these elements to create a positive (and more productive) work environment. You can use the concepts of Human Factors to help improve personal performance, understand personal motivations, and improve your personal coaching skill set. Understanding what motivates others allows you to teach, coach, and mentor more effectively -- which in turn leads to increased productivity and moral. Come prepared to participate and engage!
Join us for lunch and learn:
- The three aspects of Human Factors and how they relate to human behavior
- The four elements of Human Factors and how they impact human decision making
- How to personally experience these elements through the use of a case study
