14 June 2021, 10:00 – 12:00 CET
Speaker: Lidia Chylewska-Barakat, PhD, Department of Business and Administration of Nicolas Copernicus University, Thorn/ Toruń
Abstract: The talk is divided into two parts. The first hour is open to all and will address basics of motivation and perseverance like definitions, functions, mechanisms and the neuropsychology of them for to explain what and how we can control and regulate ourselves. The role of beliefs, habits and willpower will be described using the 3-brains concept in the understanding human behaviours. Based on this knowledge we will learn how we can set our goals. We will also take a look for intrinsic and extrinsic types of motivation and concept of motivational DNA for to explain why we need different stimulus for to feel supported and successful. In both parts we will use concepts of such a great researches like Ivan Pavlov, Albert Bandura, Burrhus Skinner, Paul MacLeane, Abraham Maslow, William McDougall, Kelly McGonigal, Marshal Rosenberg, Tamara Lowe and others.
The second hour is only for YUFE students, where they will participate in a workshop where they will recognise a specific motivational DNA using the simplest psychological 3-questions test of Tamara Lowe. Implications of this knowledge – how it works and using this for practice of pursuing a goal will be described and done in small groups and individual work. For to summarising the workshop will discuss what to do (and not to do) to have autonomy, energy, self-confidence, self-efficacy and be ourselves between other people.
