Behavioral Sciences

Demystifying Human Behavior

Nature vs. nurture

Have you ever wondered why people behave the way they do? Why do you and your siblings act so different, yet each of you share similarities with one or both of your parents? Why is someone an extrovert or introvert, optimist or pessimist, left or right brain thinker?

What’s hardwired into your DNA and what’s learned from family, friends or the unique culture in which you live?

Our Behavioral Sciences program will expand your understanding of what motivates people to act in a certain way, and that goes for the choices they make in business, relationships, education and the marketplace.
