Energizing teachers, teams, and leaders with the science of emotion.
I greatly enjoy sharing insights from psychological science and neuroscience with a public audience, and working with businesses, colleges/universities, or other groups to maximize their success using empirically-based strategies.
Currently I blog on affective neuroscience for Psychology Today. From 2010-2011 I wrote a blog for Whole Living magazine on the topics of motivation and positive psychology. Related to this work, I appeared on the Martha Stewart television show to speak about healthy living and on Whole Living’s Sirius show to speak about the scientific study of procrastination. I have also appeared on New England Cable News, discussing the science of romantic love, and on Higher Education Today to discuss a variety of neuroscience topics.
I also have worked one-on-one with several businesses and groups, sharing what psychological science has to say about the power of goal-setting, self-control, and amplifying intrinsic motivation. For instance, I worked with the Bose Corporation on how emotion science could inform a new product they were developing, the Psychiatry Department at Mount Auburn hospital on how goal-setting science could help their patients engage in better health compliance, and the Boston-area thinktank Subforum about team dynamics.
For more on my speaking and workshops directly related to higher education, read about my book The Spark of Learning: Energizing the College Classroom with the Science of Emotion and related speaking engagements here.
