Behavioral Karama: The 5 Scientific Laws of Life & Leadership
Abstract: Supporting the needs of clients at scale requires good leadership. Decades of research on applying behavior analysis to leadership practices has given us a number of tools rooted in Organizational Behavior Management (OBM) proven to be effective at bringing out the best in employees so they can bring out the best in the learners they support. However, OBM is not a one-stop-shop, only to be accessed when something goes wrong. Leadership isn’t about position or title (e.g., CEO, Director, Supervisor, Behavior Analyst, etc.), it’s about positively influencing behavior. And good leaders don’t just wait for an issue to arise and then work to put out the fire; instead, they proactively pinpoint, goal set, and create feedback loops to shape performance-improvement. The purpose of this talk is to discuss leadership from any position through the lens of 5 behavioral essentials for producing social valid outcomes within and outside of behavior analytic organizations.
