Event description

Description

Peter Gollwitzer is one of the world's leading authorities on goal attainment and motivation and has written hundreds of articles in the areas of social psychology, cognition and perception, neuropsychology, and industrial and organizational psychology. Currently, his research centres on the psychology of action, self and identity, specifically on the question of how goals and plans affect cognition and behaviour. In this talk, he will discuss one of his signature contributions concerning what he calls implementation intentions strategies. This strategy specifies the when, where and how of a goal-directed behaviour and has been shown to be effective in getting people to exercise more and procrastinate less, among many other desirable goals.

The talk will be chaired by Professor Paul Dolan Paul Dolan of the Department of Psychological and Behavioural Science.
