Primary tabs

  1. Green Career Development     SPEAKER: Norman Amundson                               Dr. Peter Plant, Copenhangen Denmark coined the term "green career development".  Identify passions; how are you intelligent; connect with likeminded people; support risk-taking, creativity, flexibility.  Assess your practice and how you are green - recycle, local; have awareness of impact - ethically and economically.  To me we still need to go further and reduce consumption in our lifestyles - but this would be bad for financial economics and social economics - image.
  2. Behavioural Economics, Career Development & Irrational Decision-Making            Life Role Development Group Ltd.   SPEAKER: Dave Redekopp, Edmonton, AB        Either or VS. Both and; Cognitive Illusions (though you know it's happening, you can't/don't stop); Anchoring (expectation rather than absolutes shape decision - also called 'reference dependence' or 'priming' - searching based on income rather than need); Loss Aversion (having something & losing it is emotionally bigger than not having the same thing and getting it - losing and starting work; Framing; Sunk Cost Bias; Base Rate Neglect; Planning Falacy (use proper time estimates); Crowding Out (external rewards ' crowd out' intrinsic motivation)





I wasn't finished.... I thought I was saving the text and could continue working. It would be ideal if we could begin writing, save and edit over time prior to posting...

at the top in faint lettering is an edit button that does allow you to edit - let me know if it is working for you

Stepping boldly into leading with children and youth to create a better future for us all.
