Think of the luckiest day of your life. No doubt many of you thought of it as the day you won the lottery, the day you met your spouse or the day when some other special person helped you. I will argue that the luckiest day of your life was the day you were exposed to behavioral technology. You may have initially thought of it as just a great safety process, but if you truly learn the science then you have actually learned concepts and skills that will help you make positive, life-changing differences in the lives of many people that include safety but go far beyond it. I will also suggest that you not get distracted by the ‘next best thing,’ but rather come to rely only on the science for lasting behavior change. When based on the science, no matter what it is called, you will have positive, sustainable success.

One BACB® Type II CE is available for this session.

“People are the most important element of every organization. With the complex challenges facing American business leaders today, the science of human behavior cannot be ignored. Rather, it must be the starting place for every decision we make, every new technology we apply, and every initiative we employ to bring out the best in people.”
