Get Better Results Using The Science Of Human Behavior

Organizational leaders need to effectuate change, but human beings are hardwired to resist it.  Inaction and avoidance are commonplace, so leaders must master the human side of management to push an organization forward.

Although leaders often excel as individual contributors, they feel overwhelmed once they have to step into leadership roles. Unsure how to get the people who work for them to execute on strategic plans and corporate vision, they frequently feel frustrated.

Alison Fragale teaches leaders, teams and organizations how to be more effective so they can get better results – both financially and interpersonally. Behavioral science reveals that human beings are predictable. When you understand the psychology behind the behavior it becomes easier to eliminate uncertainty and provide your team with the confidence to execute and achieve long-term growth.

Alison gives you the tools to overcome resistance, improve negotiations and more effectively influence others.

Through live workshops, online courses and speaking events, we can help you transform your organization to get better results for your business

As a professor of Organizational Behavior at the University of North Carolina, I teach and mentor executives to become more successful leaders who can execute their company’s strategy. In my 14 years as a research academic and speaker, I’ve come to understand that people who are really good at their job want to learn how to be even better. It’s more than being competent. It’s about being a strong leader and training the next generation to be even stronger.

By working with employees and their teams, I help organizations make a greater impact by eliminating cost, increasing employee retention and helping overall engagement and productivity. With science-based research at the core, I ensure that each of my programs remains educational, experiential, entertaining and executable.

Educational:Grounding each training or workshop in the science of organizational behavior, I employ research findings and theories to increase awareness and provide frameworks relevant to your particular circumstances.

Experiential: Participants have the opportunity to put what they learn to work right away. Each of my trainings and workshops offer people the chance to practice new behaviors and methods in circumstances that occur regularly in the workplace.

Entertaining: I use stories, movie clips, and activities to keep learning fun and informal. Rather than simply talk to my audience, I keep your team engaged and involved in learning.

Executable. Being able to put learning into action is an art. The goal of each session is for participants to leave with one or more ways to do their job differently. We help participants understand how to execute and have the confidence to do it long-term.
