Influencing with Intention: Applying the Science of Behavior to Your Workplace

At work, we often find ourselves in situations where we have to influence the behavior of others: our customers, our teammates, our boss, or the employees we lead.  Although the ability to influence behavior is a good skill for anyone to have, it is essential to those in leadership positions. Leaders must influence behavior in a direction that will produce organizational results, while creating and maintaining a positive work culture. The science of behavior shows us how powerful of an impact the environment, especially the social environment, has on human behavior.

Allison is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and a doctoral student in Behavior Analysis at Florida Institute of Technology. Prior to pursuing her PhD, Allison completed a dual Master’s degree in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and Organizational Behavior Management (OBM) at Florida Institute of Technology, where she gained experience applying the science of behavior to a wide variety of issues, settings, and populations.  During the first few years of her career,  she worked as a practitioner in the clinical field of ABA to improve the lives and learning outcomes of children with intellectual disabilities.  In recent years, Allison has focused her work in OBM, which involves applying the science of human behavior to issues within the workplace.  Some of her most exciting work in OBM involved working as an analyst for a local health system, where she received her Lean Green Belt certification and coached hospital leaders to improve employee performance, patient experience, and patient quality outcomes. Today, Allison works with a team of behavior analysts at ABA Technologies, Inc., where she develops and teaches courses for professionals who want to apply behavior analysis in their workplace, and for practitioners in behavior analysis who want to advance their education.

Please join us on Tuesday, May 23 to learn how the science of behavior can help you make a positive impact in your workplace!

     Spring, a beautiful time of the year! A time to "spring" into new adventures, and a time to "spring" the clocks forward! At times, life seems to spring forward too quickly and before we know it, the year is over and it's all behind us. As my two years as the president of our award winning ABWA chapter is coming to a close, I look back on the time and smile.
