Everybody wants Change, but why it is so difficult to Change ??

At a first look, human behavior appears as an inexplicable mess. Why do we behave irrationally? Why is it so hard to change? What is happiness and why does it seem to escape us?

The Control Heuristic approach offers a new perspective to answer these questions and provides a guiding light to shed the darkness of the subconscious resistances that prevent us to behave like the man or woman we want to be.


Outline/Structure of the Talk

In this talk I would discuss -

  • Understanding behavioral models (2-3 mins)
  • Who we are : techniques to understand the deep motivations behind our actions. (3-5 mins)
  • The factors that influence our resistance to change, with simulation (5-8 mins)
  • Tips to facilitate behavioral change (3-5 mins)
  • Discussion on findings & closing (3-5 mins)

Learning Outcome

By discussing control and the reasons we exercise it, I believe we can understand better ways to help teams be comfortable with change & adopt the same.

  • Get to know about behavioral model that explains and predicts human behavior, especially irrational acts
  • Understand techniques to understand the deep motivations behind our actions.
