Applying Behavioral Sciences to work and life. Behavioral Grooves is a podcast where Kurt Nelson, Ph.D. and Tim Houlihan, along with their guests, explore the “why we do what we do” question.
Tim founded a consultancy in applied behavioral sciences built on more than a dozen years of working with academic partners from Carnegie Mellon, Duke, Columbia, Quinnipiac, Monmouth, University of Houston, and the University of St. Thomas to name a few.
Kurt earned his doctorate in industrial and organizational psychology and founded his own consultancy more than 20 years ago to focus on the application of behavioral science in corporate settings. His clients are a who’s who of Fortune 500 companies. Together, we explore the applications of behavioral science with insights from academics, practioners and accidental behavioral scientists. Then we spin stories and talk about musical playlists that somehow tie it all together.
If you seek to motivate, work with, interact with, or are yourself a human being, this podcast is for you! Each episode explores an aspect of human behavior diving into the details of a particular theory but providing the background for anyone to jump right into the topic. While the focus in on application into the business world, there is applicability across various organizations and even a fresh lense to examine your own behaviors. The hosts are engaging and bring a humility and levity to the conversation that is a pleasure to listen to. I highly recommend you take a listen!
I just discovered this podcast a week ago, and I can’t stop listening to it. These guys and the guests they bring on is incredible. Despite the fact that they seemingly know everything there is to know about behavioral science, they still show surprise and wonder when talking with guests about what they do. I work in the business world applying behavioral science though, so Behavioral Grooves scratches all of my itches. Easily the best behavioral science podcast for people who have moved beyond the basics.
