What Information We'll Cover

This course will provide introduce individuals unfamiliar with OBM literature to the role of preferences in our management practice. This course will discuss common challenges associated with determining what staff want to work for, and provide a structure for creating categories of reinforcers based upon the non-profit literature. Additionally, countless different forms of reinforcers will be shared, along with a review of the literature associated with best practices in staff preference assessment. Finally, an emphasis will be made on the idea of moving beyond contrived reinforcers to creating work environments that eliminate the role of aversive control as an essential component of leadership behavior.
