    Title: Gentle Persuasion: Understanding the power of the written word in shaping our opinions and beliefs

    Presenter: Dr. Sam Weissrock


    Summary

     

    There's plenty of talk in social media and news about how we are influenced. The equivalent of modern-day Einstein's are hired to “analyze,” “machine learn,” and “AI” our every click of the mouse!!!  BUT...have you ever wondered about the power of the words read about work, leadership, or career mobility? Well, I have dedicated more than 15 years to understanding just that!


    While in my undergrad, I became obsessed with how writing styles in popular magazines, scholarly journals, and academic publications were guiding my perception and opinion as a reader. I became intrigued by the psychological, social, and neurological aspects of leadership and took that passion into my research on how language is used in leadership studies. 

     

    Words, sentences, paragraphs…oh, my! I had no idea what an eye-opening journey I would take or the power of language to shape opinions, influence beliefs, or the strategies to avoid unintentionally becoming a negative self-fulfilling prophecy! My fourth-grade teacher, Miss McCormick, must be relieved that someone was kind of paying attention in her language arts class!!!

     

    Please join me in my presentation, Gentle Persuasion: Understanding the power of the written word in shaping our opinions and beliefs, where I will share eye-opening, and hopefully entertaining, information about how we communicate, unintentionally assert our opinions, and strategies to question our beliefs.


    Bio

     

    Dr. Sam Weissrock holds her Doctorate and Masters of Industrial/Organizational Psychology from Walden University, Master in Interdisciplinary Studies and Bachelor of Continuing Studies from Indiana University. She has served as editor of the Indiana University Southeast Graduate Review-Journal and presented at the Midwest MIS Conference. Her presentations include the impact of media on men and masculinity, the effects of psychosocial support on the goal attainment of men in impoverished communities, and the influence of perception of equality in academic studies on the intersection of gender and leadership.

    Making Ice-breakers meaningful and relevant!

    Join us at the Lawrenceville Library for this amazing in-person session. Meet with people you know or come to make new friends.

    Sometimes we HR/OD/Trainer types run the risk of making our ice-breakers seem silly and trivial because of the way we introduce and design them.  Join us for a discussion about different ways to make them more meaningful, engaging and relevant.  Bring your own favorite you're willing to share!  This will be a "no slides" meeting ;) just exercises to discuss and riff on.
