Dr. Carl Naughton is an organizational psychologist. He investigates what makes us tick: How motivation and emotion determine our expectations of the future; our everyday decisions, our memories and our ability to learn. His key themes are change, creativity, communication and curiosity. Carl has authored books around thinking, curiosity and co-authored several scientific studies around different fields of psychology. His unique approach to teaching grabs audiences by combining a thought-provoking and humorous oratory style.
