      http://brightsightgroup.com || Trust is the secret ingredient of high performance organizations. Dr. Zak describes the science and applications of a management tool he developed called Ofactor that has been used by numerous organizations to increase trust between colleagues and improve the bottom line. It is based on the latest brain science developed in his lab. He describes an eight step trust-boosting program that every organization can use. In a surprising twist, he shows why high trust organizations have happier and healthier employees. It's not rocket science, but it is neuroscience.

He is credited with the first published use of the term "neuroeconomics" and has been a vanguard in this new discipline. He organized and administers the first doctoral program in neuroeconomics. Dr. Zak's lab discovered in 2004 that the brain chemical oxytocin allows us to determine who to trust. His current research has shown that oxytocin is responsible for virtuous behaviors, working as the brain's "moral molecule." This knowledge is being used to understand the basis for civilization and modern economies, improve negotiations, and treat patients with neurologic and psychiatric disorders. Dr. Zak's work on oxytocin and relationships has earned him the nickname "Dr. Love."

                IN THIS UNUSUAL TAG-TEAM LECTURE Zak and Shermer debunk two myths: (1) Homo economicus: that “economic man” is rational, free and selfish and (2) that evolution and economics are based almost entirely on cutthroat competition and self-maximizing greed. In Zak’s Moral Markets and Shermer’s The Mind of the Market, the authors demonstrate that people are as irrational with money as they are in all other aspects of life, and that Alfred Tennyson’s characterization of competition in nature — “red in tooth and claw” — and the Gordon Gekko “greed is good” characterization of capitalism are woefully incomplete in understanding how evolution and economics works. Dr. Paul Zak is at the Center for Neuroeconomics, Claremont Graduate University, where he conducts research on the neurobiology of trust, the relationship of touch, oxytocin, and trust, social cognition producing cooperation or conflict, and the link between economic systems, social structures, and trust. He earned his Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania in 1994 and is the editor of such technical books as The Euro, the Dollar and the Future of the International Monetary System and Monetary Stability and Economic Growth. His new book is Moral Markets: The Critical Role of Values in the Economy. Dr. Michael Shermer is the publisher of Skeptic magazine, a monthly columnist for Scientific American, an Adjunct Professor at Claremont Graduate University, and the author of Why People Believe Weird Things, How We Believe, and The Science of Good and Evil. His latest book is The Mind of the Market: Compassionate Apes, Competitive Humans, and Other Tales from Evolutionary Economics. Order this lecture on DVD: http://www.skeptic.com/productlink/av182

                    Authors@ Presents...Paul Zak's "The Moral Molecule" Paul Zak is the founding Director of the Centre for Neuroeconomics Studies and Professor of Economics at Claremont Graduate University. He is the proponent of the theory that oxytocin, a hormone generally associated with childbirth and present in all of us, drives our morality and is responsible for trust, empathy and other feelings that build and help maintain stable societies. In his new book, Zak sets out to ask why are men less faithful than women? Why are some people altruists and others cold-hearted bastards? Why do some businesses succeed while others collapse?
