The Chemistry of Performance
Recent Human Genome discoveries combined with new insights of Job-Career Success Factor are shaking foundational beliefs in Cognitive Control and Employer influence. Do we control (by conscious-decision) our Attitude, Confidence, Work Ethics, and Effective Communication? Satisfaction, Team Work, Motivation have been the guiding principles of HR & Managers, but how strong is that influence?
Career Co-Physiology is a nascent field of study of the heritability of Occupation Epigenetics which give rise to physiological expressions as characteristics or traits, or behavioral properties. We will look to understand: What role does genetics play in why we choose one career field over another or on company over another? Can motivation be autonomic influenced by Neural-Chemistry vs. specific application of the conscious will? Is someone a Go-Getter due to self-aware desire to win or a chemical addict?
As we move into the future, the CTXWFS is meeting at a NEW LOCATION:
