“The primary source of unconscious priming…is your conscious experience.” Our consciousness is where we bring everything together, where we integrate and form a rich integration of our experience. This result is that this experience gets spread out to all the processes of the mind which is pivotal to how priming, an unconscious effect, actually works. John Bargh is a researcher and professor at Yale University and is probably the leading researcher on behavioral priming and has been studying this topic for almost 40 years. Not only that but he is a long term friend of Behavioral Grooves Podcast.

Today's episode of OMG is actually a crossover with a new podcast, Sound-Up Governance, which is part of the new Ground-Up Governance platform. Episode 1 features an interview with Tiziana Casciaro, author of Power, for All: How it Really Works, and Why it's Everyone's Business. If you like what you hear, please consider heading over to groundupgovernance.com and subscribing.   SCRIPT The next three episodes of OMG are gonna be REALLY different. Well, actually, they're not episodes of OMG at all, but episodes of a brand new podcast called Sound-Up Governance, which is part of my new Ground-Up Governance platform. Sound-Up Governance features interviews with experts who don't necessarily come from the regular pool of corporate governance “gurus” so to speak. Instead, they are experts in stuff that's really important to doing corporate governance well, and can help us to understand what's really going on in our organizations. First up is Professor Tiziana Casciaro, who literally wrote the book on power and authority. If you like what you hear, head over to groundupgovernance.com to learn more and consider subscribing.   Matt  Welcome to Sound-Up Governance, part of the ground up governance network. My name is Matt Fullbrook. And in today's episode I speak with my friend Tiziana Casciaro, Professor of Organizational Behavior at the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto. We launched the Ground-Up Governance newsletter this week with the most fundamental concepts in corporate governance: authority and power. I mean, what could be more essential to corporate governance then trying to understand who's allowed to do what and what it takes for one person to influence another person? Luckily for us, Professor Casciaro, recently co authored a book with Harvard's Julie Battilana called Power for All: How it Really Works, and Why it's Everyone's Business. And just so I don't mess anything up, why don't we let her tell us a bit more?   Tiziana  It's a book intended for all in this world, not only in Canada, not only the US, but really, truly everywhere, who have contended with power, have struggled with it been frustrated by it, while understanding that it's important for them to have it, and know how to use it. And we have tried to give tools and understandings that allow people to grow in their influence, but also learn how to deploy it for good.   Matt  It never much occurred to me to think very hard about what power really is, or how, if at all, it's different from authority, or why, for example, people in really visible or influential positions sometimes fail to make a difference, am I missing somethingZ   Tiziana  Power is often very much confused with authority, or or I should say, authority is often confused with power. They are different, however. Authority is the formal right to issue orders and directives and make decisions. And it comes from the position you occupy in a formal structure. So your role puts you in a place where you get to make certain decisions. Power is different, however. Power is the ability to influence the behavior of other people. And you can influence them sometimes through your formal authority. If I have the right to decide whether you're going to be promoted or not, that gives me power over you. It's not just authority, but it's actual power. Why? Because you want something from me: a promotion. I have control over your access to this thing you want because I have the right to decide whether you will be promoted or not. And therefore I exercise influence over you. That's what power is made of. It's made of controlling your access to something you desire.  But you see, already in the definition of power, that I may control, access to something you want without having formal authority.   Matt   So can a person create power? Does that even make sense?   Tiziana  Absolutely makes sense. A person can increase their power, if they understand this simple principle of where power comes from. If I know that power comes from controlling access to resources you want, all I need to accrue more power is understand what is it that you want. And that's where people become very confused between the notion of formal authority and the power broadly conceived, formal authority has to do with something very specific. I have certain decision rights in a certain context over certain things. But that covers only a small part of what you might want, you might not just want a promotion, you might want for instance, to be managed by somebody who understands you, that understands your gifts, your talents, your complexity as a human being, values it and makes you feel good by giving you a platform where you can be your best self every day at work. Those are much more psychological resources, that are not written down in any formal organizational structure. They are much more subtle, and yet they are extremely important to people, they drive who they want to associate themselves with, whether they I want to be led by you or not, whether I will trust the decision you make. And even if you make a decision through your formal authority, and the decision comes at me, your actual underlying power - so,  your ability to influence my behavior - will come down to how willing am I to execute on that decision?   Matt   Okay, now we're really getting somewhere. No wonder some people have authority, but still can't get anyone to do anything. Power isn't only about controlling access to tangible resources, in some cases is way more important to just make someone feel good, feel valued and motivated. Since Ground-Up Governance is ultimately about corporations, how does all this apply in a typical corporate structure with a board, a CEO...in other words, a model that's got a well defined, built in leadership hierarchy. Once again, here's Professor Tiziana Casciaro.   Tiziana   The problem of the hierarchical structure you're describing is that it tends to concentrate power in the hands of very few people. And what we know from research in all kinds of disciplines is that power concentration tends to be bad in the long run, not only for the majority of people who don't have power, and therefore are just on the receiving end of the decisions of the few. But it can also be detrimental to the few in power, to the extent that having that much control can lead them to abuse their power. They lose sight of their unilateral capacity to shape the life of others and the other people who are receiving these decisions. Sometimes they become resentful of this asymmetry. And for good reason, if they're not unreasonable in becoming resentful. And when you have resentful people that you're leading, it's not good. Because they might push back, they do push back, the moment they have a little bit of room to show you that you're abusing your power. And I don't like it.   Matt  Uh oh So, concentrating power at the top of an organization sounds risky. What about a board of directors? How do power and authority work there?   Tiziana  So, you are a director on a board. And and because of that role, you will have certain rights to issue directives for the company and its leadership, and jointly with the other board members, you can come up with certain decisions that then presumably get implemented. So imagine one of these board members that in addition to the formal authority that accrues to them, by virtue of occupying that position on the board, they have something else going on for them. Maybe they have extra good connections to a stakeholder that the management of the company cares about, or that the board cares about. And they have to go through me to get to those guys in that stakeholder groups. In that case, I will end up having more influence over the decisions of the board and the behavior of the executives that leave the company, because I've got something that they want. And I control it in the sense that there aren't many alternative ways for them to get to those stakeholders, they kind of have to go through me.   Matt   It almost seems like part of the problem is the way that boards are structured, I asked Professor Casciaro if we should be trying to build boards so that every director somehow has an equal amount of power. I mean, maybe that would be the ideal condition for making good decisions and balancing everyone's interests.   Tiziana  The reality is that resources are unequally distributed across each and every one of us. And it's unavoidable that you will not have the quality you're describing on the board. But what you can do is to create decision making processes that make it harder for people to go off and establish relationships of influence that are disconnected from the goal that the board is presumably pursuing. So you can have decision making structures where it's one board member, one vote, that you have a way to express your preferences that does not allow easily for you to be swayed by others, which could protect you from their influence when it stems from things that have nothing to do with a decision at hand.   Matt  All right, so maybe it isn't possible to distribute power equally, but we can just use processes that balance things out a little. That's what we should be working on right?    Tiziana   But then you lose something when you do that. When you create a structure in which the decision is made almost independently by each board member, what you lose is the learning and the ability to engage with ideas other than your own that can actually and actually do oftentimes improve decision making. I can come in with my own independent judgment, which is all fine and dandy because it becomes not subject to your undue influence as my fellow board member. But I don't get to hear your argument, I don't get to really make my own decision better, because I don't get your input. So that's what what you're the tension, you're juggling here, you're navigating this pull toward independence, but also want to secure the beauty of multiple minds, struggling with a complex decision, where each and every one of us individually, cannot really understand every component.   Matt   We've learned how authority and power are different, and that people can in fact, take steps to generate power. We've all heard about the potential corrupting effects of power socially - morally, even - can we take steps to, you know, use our power for good?   Tiziana Ultimately, you're going to have to contend with what you have done with your life. What have you impacted? What are you leaving behind? And this is a level of insight into yourself that sometimes escapes us when we are in the middle of the action. We are the CEO of a company, complex stuff coming at us from every which way, and we kind of forget that actually, we want to accomplish something here. In addition to being rich and famous. We want to accomplish something other than that. So it's very important for people to understand that there are many goals you can accomplish. And power is essential to accomplishing all of them. You cannot get anything done without power. It's a form of energy in many ways that allows you to change the world around you, and move it in a direction you think is worthwhile. So you have to empower, for lack of a better word, people to acquire the power they need to pursue those objectives. And sometimes the people that have formal authority are not the right people. They're not pursuing the right objectives anymore. Maybe they started out with dreams and ambitions that were perfectly good and constructive, but along the way they lost sight of them. So the book tries to give everybody an opportunity to understand how power works so that they can acquire it, and then set up their power - and this is something that boards actually are very important contributors to - set up their power so that they don't get lost along the way. Because power does go to our head. It does. It does contaminate our purpose. It does distract us from our limitations and our need for other people to help us along the way. It makes us hubristic, it makes us self focused. So you need to not only give people tools to acquire power, but also give them tools to keep it in check.   Matt   Thank you for listening to episode number one of Sound-Up Governance.

High-stress situations pushes people to the edge. Some people rise the occasion, others fail. What makes the difference? Hostage negotiation tactics may at first seem a little too extreme, or intense, to be utilized at work. It’s exactly those situations that can teach us how to deal with tough and highly demanding situations. My guest, Geroge Kohlrieser, a leadership expert and a former hostage negotiator, believes that high-performing leaders are able to use these techniques in any personal or business relationship to ensure they are never a hostage to anyone, including themselves. In this episode, we speak about the “secure base” concept. George gives us real-life examples and practical advice on how this may manifest in leaders and how to become a secure base for themselves in order to build an inspiring work environment. George A. Kohlrieser, trained as an organizational and clinical psychologist, is a Distinguished Professor of Leadership and Organizational Behavior at IMD Business School in Switzerland. He is the founder of the High-Performance Leadership (HPL) Program, the flagship six-day program for experienced senior leaders. George is a frequent speaker at management conferences including the World Business Forum, the World Economic Forum, and the United Nations. He is a media commentator on issues related to leadership, conflict, aggression management, and hostage negotiation and has been a presenter at TEDx talks in both New York and Lausanne.

Consequences when people don’t have a ‘secure base’ The brain is fundamentally negative – and what to do about it How to successfully apply the 'secure base' concept in sales Importance of understanding a person’s pain points Techniques to calm down an angry person Why do so many leaders often lack excellent listening skills?

Robb is also the co-Director of Stanford's Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society. He studies social forces that bring people together (such as morality and altruism), forces that divide them (such as fear and prejudice), and domains of social life that feature the complex interplay of the two (such as hierarchies and politics). Robb has published in top journals across different fields, and his lab's work has been featured in outlets such as the New York Times, Vox, and Washington Post.In this episode, Eric chats with Robb about his latest work on false meta-perceptions. This line of work suggests something counter-intuitive: Democrats and Republicans might overestimate how violent the other party is. Such misguided perceptions can become self-fulfilling: each party risks reacting with violence to the overly violent picture they have painted of the outgroup. Robb also shares how he knows what research ideas to pursue and what other projects he is excited about these days.

Flowing East and West: The Perfectly Imperfect Journey to a Fulfilled Life

“Sometimes we work to our perceived limit when we could probably work a little past that.” Bryan Gillette is not a guy who thinks small as it comes to athletics or adventure. He has run multiple ulta-races, including eight back-to-back marathons. However, he still believes he could have swung a little higher. This is a great metaphor for all of us - in what ways are we letting our mindset hold us back, whether from an athletic endeavor, getting our next job, or becoming  more involved in the community? Join us to hear about Bryan's perfectly imperfect journey, and his newly-released book, EPIC Performance: Lessons from 100 Executives and Endurance Athletes on Reaching Your Peak.     Bio: BRYAN GILLETTE knows what it is like to reach the peak as he has stood on the summits of many mountains and successfully completed many physically and mentally challenging ultra-distance endurance events. He's reached several ‘summits' in his career as well. Bryan has over 25 years' experience in Leadership and Organizational Development with executive and senior-level responsibilities in small and large companies. Before starting his consulting practice, he was on the Executive Committee as the Vice President of Human Resources for a mid-size, global-technology company. In addition to running Human Resources and Payroll, he has extensive experience in Leadership Development, Organizational Design, Communications, and Mergers & Acquisitions. His experience also includes coaching at all levels on a variety of issues such as change management, performance improvement, and communications. He takes a pragmatic approach and brings firsthand experience having managed teams of 2 to 270 people and multi-million-dollar projects. Although he is a former company executive, Bryan is known to roll up his sleeves and do whatever it takes to get the job done. In these 25 years, he has taught leadership courses in many countries, consulted with executives, conducted needs analysis, and developed programs that drive the desired performance for the company to meet its objectives. With the consolidation of companies over the years, he has integrated over 40 acquisitions ranging from 8-person to 1,000+ person companies. He holds an MBA from California State University and two Bachelors' degrees from the University of California, Davis in Organizational Behavior and Communications. To give back to the community, Bryan started up and ran the Bridge of Opportunity, a 501(c)3 foundation, to provide foster kids scholarships to attend college. He was the Co-Chair and founding Board Member for iGATE, a non-profit incubator to assist small green-related companies. And, he was the Co-Race Director for the Pleasanton Run for Education, a 3,000-person running race, which raised $250,000 for the local schools during his 4 years. For recreation, he is a dedicated endurance athlete completing many long-distance cycling or running events including cycling across the United States, cycling 300 miles in 24 hours, and running 200 miles around Lake Tahoe in 76 hours. As an avid traveler, he recently spent one year with his wife and two boys traveling through South America, Africa, the Middle East, and Europe. His book, EPIC Performance: Lessons from 100 Executives and Endurance Athletes on Reaching Your Peak based on his experiences reaching lofty goals as well as the experience of 100+ CEOs, CxOs, founders, and endurance athletes who have also reached amazing goals will be published Summer 2022.

Three things generate a sense of meaning IN life; Coherence - can you make sense of the world? Purpose - do you feel a sense of purpose with what you do? And Significance - does your life matter? Having meaning in your life is correlated with a sense of self certainty. Knowing who you are and having a sense of self, gives you structure and a stable way of seeing the world.   But how do you answer the question “who am I?” Our guest, Dr Brian Lowery PhD says the answer isn't as individualistic as we may have been led to believe. Not only do those around us; our friends, co-workers and parents contribute to who we are, Brian claims they actually create who we are. Putting it bluntly, there is no way of separating “you” from your relationships.   We've waited a long time to talk to Brian, who is the Walter Kenneth Kilpatrick Professor of Organizational Behavior at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. He is a social psychologist by training, but Brian's work is by no means traditional in that field. He studies how individuals perceive inequality, and his research explores individuals' experiences of inequality and fairness in a way that sheds light on intergroup conflict and the nature of social justice. Brian is also a fellow podcaster, hosting the show Know What You See which is definitely worth checking out.   Listeners can become a Behavioral Grooves supporter by donating to our work through Patreon. Or please consider writing us a podcast review on your app. Thanks!   Topics (5:21) Welcome to Brian Lowery and speed round questions. (7:34) The meaning IN life vs. the meaning OF life. (9:23) How meaning in life is linked to a sense of self certainty. (13:30) Context matters: those around us create who we are. (17:13) What are you referring to when you talk about you?

About the Guest: Alyssa Grocutt's passion for workplace safety started after her father's tragic death in a workplace safety incident when she was 11 years old. Alyssa's father's death was a profound learning and developmental experience, and in time became a challenge to turn life's negative experiences into personal inspirations.

Welcome back to another episode of Well, Not Perfect.   Today I have Vanessa Bohns on the show and let me tell you, this was one of the most thought provoking conversations I've had on this podcast to date.    Vanessa is a social psychologist and a professor of organizational behavior at Cornell University. She holds a PhD in Psychology from Columbia University and an AB from Brown University. Professor Bohns is an expert on social influence, compliance, and consent; and investigates why it's so hard to say no. Her research has been published in top academic journals in psychology, management, and law. And her first book You Have More Influence Than You Think was published in September.    I found my conversation with Professor Bohns to be absolutely fascinating on both a personal and professional level. Her insights helped me understand a lot about myself and the people around me.   In this episode you will learn: Why so many of us struggle to say no; Biases that influence the way we see the world and how the world sees us; and Why we tend to be harder on ourselves than others are on us.   Welcome to another episode of Well, Not Perfect.   To connect with Professor Bohns, you can find her at:  Twitter & Instagram: @profbohns Website: https://www.vanessabohns.com/ Her book ‘You Have More Influence Than You Think': https://www.amazon.com/dp/1324005718/

In this episode, Jeff, Jeff, and Matt discuss: Actively engaging God in all you do. Listening when God directs you in your life. Learning to be present and embracing the moments of life. Business as a mission, making an impact, and living well.   Key Takeaways: You do not need to be like everyone else. Be willing to be different and unapologetically you. God is the author of your story, not you. He is in control of your life, we only think we have control.  What you believe is important, but how you implement that belief is more so. You can make an impact where you are in business and glorify God in the process. You do not need to have mission and business as two separate aspects of your life.   "I think it just behooves all of us to really see Christ above all, and put our identity in Him and Him alone." —  Matt Morris About Matt Morris: Matthew (Matt) Morris is an active board member, advisor, and investor with industry expertise in the Real Estate, Financial Services, and Technology sectors. From 2011 through 2020, Matt served as the President and CEO of Stewart Information Services Corporation after joining the company in 2004.

Practice is Dr. Dave Fearon's way of being. His practice?  Irrepressible Teaching. Before, during, and after the 50+ years, he was a professor. His subject?  You; and why your practice matters to him, to everyone, and, of course, to you.His medium?  Wherever and to whomever digital takes him.Accordingly, his new digital-first book with the late, highly regarded Leadership thinker Peter B. Vaill is titled: Practice as a Way of Being: Peter Vaill's Conjectures on Why Your Practice Matters.His long-running podcast that Dave originated with Peter is called Practice? “Irrepressible” because six years ago, David S. Fearon, Emeritus Professor of Management & Organizational Behavior, Central Connecticut State University, capped off 55 years as a successful Management Educator, practicing leadership in how he taught and how he served colleges and communities as dean and professor.Retired, Dave tried leisure, taking up golf and offering the occasional workshop, but he could not stop being a teacher. So, when the call came from Peter, his own most revered teacher, inviting a chance to draw attention to Practice as a tantalizingly under-taught but universally important question, Dave gave up the leisure (but not the golf).Now Practice is Dave's practice, and it's all about You.Resources Mentioned in This EpisodeBook - On Practice as a Way of Being Website - Enation ResearchPodcast - Practice?Television show -  The Bear on HuluTelevision show - Get Back on Disney+Film - In and of Itself on HuluA Quote From This Episode"So imagine now the wonderful journey someone's making - assuming they're continuing to get better, no matter what the conditions, the payoff is your practice.

In this HCI Podcast episode, Dr. Jonathan H. Westover talks with Dr. Erin Eatough about the new BetterUp report, "The Connection Crisis: Why Community Matters in the New World of Work." See the video here: https://youtu.be/exj-2iJV9Co. Dr. Erin Eatough is researcher, author, speaker, and consultant and serves BetterUp as Manager, Behavioral Science. She is the researcher and author behind BetterUp's Research & Insights blog column and speaks regularly about the science behind human thriving at both academic and industry events. Erin received her PhD in Industrial-Organizational Psychology from the University of South Florida. Before BetterUp, Erin was a professor. With over 30 articles and book contributions, she actively publishes research on the intersection of work and well-being which has been featured in outlets such as the Journal of Applied Psychology and Journal of Organizational Behavior, and cited in media outlets such as Harvard Business Review. Erin is the recipient of several awards for her scientific works including authoring the top research paper of the year by the National Communication Association and Outstanding Author Contribution by Emerald Publishing. The report reveals that 43% of employees say their organization isn't doing enough to help them feel connected to their colleagues. Furthermore, while people today overwhelmingly want to have more friends or friendly colleagues in the workplace (with 53% indicating they'd be willing to trade compensation for stronger ties with colleagues), almost none of us are finding the connection we want.  BetterUp's most recent research shows alarming trends taking hold across the workforce: 61% don't socialize with their co-workers outside of work 53% don't look forward to working because of co-workers 44% don't have a true friend at work 43% don't feel a sense of connection to co-workers 38% don't trust their co-workers 22% don't have even one friend at work Workplace connection matters more than ever. The problem isn't just that people have become isolated, but that companies need stronger connections with and among their people to have the committed, adaptable, resilient, and mentally fit talent they need. Ultimately, connection fuels performance and well-being. Please consider supporting the podcast on Patreon and leaving a review wherever you listen to your podcasts!

The Science of Happiness

Apologies are key to successful relationships. But are you doing them right? Episode summary: We all have moments when we say or do something we later regret. Then the time comes to make an apology. But a halfhearted “I'm sorry” rarely gets the job done. On this episode of The Science of Happiness, public defender Sam Dugan joins us for a second time to try science-backed tips for making an effective apology. First, she takes a moment to cultivate mindfulness through a mindful breathing practice. Next, Sam invites us in as she apologizes to her husband Nate. Sam reflects on how she took out her stress on Nate, what led her to lash out, and the importance of making a true, heartfelt apology — as opposed to the mindless ones many of us make on a near-daily basis. Then we hear from Sana Rizvi, a professor at the University of New Brunswick, about the science of how mindfulness can make us more apologetic. Practice: Mindful Breathing Invite your body to relax into a comfortable position. Tune into the rhythm of your breath, and pay attention as you breathe in through your nose, hold your breath, and exhale through your mouth. Repeat as many times as you'd like. Making an Effective Apology Acknowledge the offense by showing that you recognize who was responsible, who was harmed, and the nature of the offense. If helpful, provide an explanation, especially to convey that it was not intentional and that it will not happen again. Express remorse. Make amends. When considering how to best make amends, be sure to ask the offended person what would mean the most to them.
