Guest: Andrew O'Keeffe, Director, Hardwired Humans
Host: Lisa Attygalle, Director of Engagement, Tamarack Institute
In his ground-breaking book, Hardwired Humans – Successful Leadership using Human
Instincts, author Andrew O’Keeffe provides a practical framework and tools for engaging with others. This framework can be instrumental in creating a culture of collaboration in community change efforts including collective impact. This webinar will focus on three of nine of the Hardwired Human instincts including: social belonging, first impressions to classify, and loss aversion. Andrew will help participants understand the origins of these human behaviours and how they can be used to advance collaborative efforts. Join us for this intriguing conversation about Hardwired Humans.
