If you can answer ‘Yes’ to most of these questions, then the Behavioural Insights team at Carr Communications wants to hear from you.

We understand that people are irrational, and this irrationality affects every aspect of our daily lives.  If we were rational, we’d save regularly for retirement rather than putting it off. We’d maintain a healthy balanced lifestyle that doesn’t involve a Friday night takeaway. We’d make more considered, reflective decisions, rather than quick, impulsive decisions driven by the moment.

Understanding why, when and how people act irrationally is what our Behavioural Insights team are most passionate about.  We then work on ways of communicating more effectively with people to nudge them towards better behaviours.   We work with clients to achieve this in areas like leadership, business development, Human Resources, consumer finance and employee engagement.

Our Behavioural Insights trainers give delegates a better understanding of human behaviour and the biases that affect decision making.  Understanding these biases helps people to better manage themselves and others.   It helps people to enhance their interactions in the widest range of scenarios.

Our approach is underpinned by the best research from economics, psychology and other social sciences. It is then applied using rigorous methodologies to generate significant impact for our clients.

If the chance to be one of our Behavioural Insights trainers sounds exciting and you think you might have what it takes then please send your CV to Anthony Kelly anthony@carrcommunications.ie
