Compassionate leadership – learn how to be an everyday hero

Our event gives people greater actionable insights to achieve their professional and well-being goals.

From Experiment to Experience to Action” refers to the The Stanford Prison Experiment (see 2015 movie trailer below) conducted in 1971. Stanford Psychologist Phil Zimbardo investigated what happens when good, normal people are given roles that create "malicious" behavior, creating a controversial and criticized outcome. Psychology and our understanding of the situation was changed forever, but today, Phil and others are using the findings to develop strong, compassionate, and heroic leadership enabling psychological well-being, productivity and leadership skills. Join us for an enlightening, interactive opportunity to learn how to apply research based findings to increase you and your organizations capabilities!
