People at Work – Myth vs. Reality

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014  at 12:30 PM EDT, 9:30 AM PST

Presented by: Jeffrey Saltzman

Everyone has various traits which could be described as strengths or shortcomings. Some of them are known to us and some are hidden, despite, perhaps, being quite obvious to others. Some of these traits have their origins in how we have evolved as a species and how our psychology developed. Our tendency to see intelligent intent where there may be none is one such trait. And our ability to form up into groups to better accomplish tasks which we would have difficulty accomplishing alone is another. This ability to form up into groups, using our social instincts, led to the very first human organizations and later on to the complex organizations we are surrounded by today. But as these complex organizations came into being, various myths have arisen about people in them. Some of these are based on kernels of truth, others are used to justify certain actions that we might take against others or other groups, and some are just built-in biases that we all have simply because we are human. Please join us for this webinar that will explore some of the common thinking about employees at work – examining what is real and what is myth.
