Darwin’s Survival of the fittest is maybe the best management quote for this era, meaning: the one who adapts to the changes in the surrounding world will survive. However, sometimes our human behavior conflicts with change and adaption to new challenges. What is the influence of our primal behavior? Or is it just politics that withholds us from change?
Patrick van Veen will guide you through his virtual zoo, to explain what the human complexity is with change but also how we can deal with challenges as cooperation, information sharing and use of expertise. Primates will demonstrate how our primal behavior is conflicting with the changing world and work environment, however we will also see an optimistic perspective on the human species. This lecture will help, you to understand your behavior and that is the key to start the change of behavior.
