The Chemistry of Performance

  • 7:00 PM
  • Cafe Express, 3418 North Lamar Blvd., Austin, TX 78705

Registration

  • Gathering will start at 6pm, with the presentation starting around 7pm. This is a dinner meeting, with a charge of $20 for members, and $25 for non-members to cover the cost of the dinner and group expenses.

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:

Cafe Express
3418 North Lamar Blvd.
Austin, TX 78705
(meet in the back room)

Unlike previous meetings, there is NO CHARGE or need to register to attend this meeting. You can order your own food and drink if you wish (and most people do), but please arrive early to place your order. The meeting starts promptly at 7pm.

Best Regards,
Central Texas Chapter of the World Future Society
