Psychology at Work
Summary: Psychologists Dr. Casey Lankow and Dr. Tim Johansson envision a world of work where people discover their significance and purpose. Join them as they explore how to make positive meaning of our relationships and contributions (and what can get in the way), which leads to being more engaged, present, and effective. Gain some insight about yourself, enjoy some laughs, and join Drs. Tim and Casey in creating a world of work where being seen and noticed is a celebration of the whole self and an invitation to bring all of oneself into the work environment – a place where people are able to be their best selves.
Self-Awareness is important (it comes up in almost every episode!). In perhaps the most practical episode yet, Casey and Tim discuss 3 different means of getting feedback about ourselves in order to increase our self-awareness.
How many times in a day do you hear people refer to someone's 'personality'? While personality is an often cited reason for all sorts of things (mostly problems), it is often misused and misunderstood. Listen as Casey and Tim break down their conceptualization of personality, which goes beyond just traits.
Is power a bad thing? Does it corrupt absolutely? Power is an ever-present and complex construct. This is part one of an ongoing series about power. This episode lays the foundation for what power actually is (it's a real thing) and introduces two kinds of power: positional power and personal power.
Is insight necessary for behavior change? Are our behavior options limited to our personality? This episode explores the importance of self-awareness and also why it's not enough.
Emotions are contagious - both positive and negative - whether we like it or not. Listen as Casey and Tim break down the mechanisms of emotional contagion and discuss how to prevent it.
How we show up and the impact we have, hinges on our mindset. It's a decision we make every day. Listen as Casey and Tim break down this human process and call for a movement!
What exactly are significance and purpose? Listen as Casey and Tim explore these two constructs, the inherent subjective nature of them, and learn about a key first step in discovering your significance and purpose in yourself.
Drs. Casey and Tim dive into the concept of Psychological Safety. What is it? What is it not? Neuroscience, fear, baseball and being "name called" all find their way into the discussion....and more!
