Pop Culture & I/O: MCU Leaders Assemble!
Please join us in person for first Speaker event of the year!
I-O Psychologists are committed to providing clients with effective evidence-based practice. I-Os often search for innovative ways in which to discuss the science of I-O psychology with their clients. The book Leaders Assemble: Leadership in the MCU uses the Marvel Cinematic Universe to help executives, students, and workers of all kinds develop their leadership skills. The book provides a unique way for coaches, trainers, and leaders to discuss and apply leadership theory.
Using a case study approach, Dr. Islam will discuss the value of pop culture as examples for I-O psychology students, academics, and practitioners to help their clients implement evidence-based practice.
Participants will learn how to
- Develop one’s own leadership through pop culture and leadership examples from the Marvel Cinematic Universe
- Communicate evidence-based science with clients using a unique pop culture approach
