    Pop Culture & I/O: MCU Leaders Assemble!

    Title Detail: Leaders Assemble! Leadership in the MCU by Gordon B. Schmidt

    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

    Tuesday, October 18th starting at 6pm

    In Person! At NYU's Wasserman Center for Career Development

     133 E 13th St, New York, NY 10003
