There is no better time to go BEyond traditional notions of success and innovation, and aspire to be greater
Major transformations are driven by a growing consensus that an existing paradigm has ceased to function adequately. Most stakeholders agree we are at a major turning point. There is significant opportunity to improve how we serve customer’s needs, how we motivate our teams with purpose, and how we empower leaders to drive with aspiration. But it is not enough to simply reject the status quo; rejecting one paradigm without simultaneously substituting it with another can be dangerous.
Behavioral science offers that new framework.
Kelly Peters is the CEO and Co-Founder of BEworks. She is passionate about bringing scientific thinking to business strategy, marketing, and operations.
Kelly has overseen the launch of several new business ventures that capitalized on insights into consumer behavior. Her interest in behavioral science stems back to the late 90s when working on behavioral scoring models in credit risk and online distribution models, evolved through behavioral finance, and finally culminated in 2008 when she embraced behavioral economics as the most reliable approach to executing strategy. She launched what might be the world’s first commercial application of behavioral field experiments while at RBC to help drive adoption of online service channels.
