    Jonathan Haidt Speaker Biography

    Positive psychology speaker Jonathan Haidt is a social psychologist at New York University’s Stern School of Business. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in 1992, and taught for 16 years in the department of psychology at the University of Virginia.

    Haidt’s research examines the intuitive foundations of morality, and how morality varies across cultures – including the cultures of American progressive, conservatives, and libertarians. Haidt is the author of three books: The Happiness Hypothesis: Finding Modern Truth in Ancient Wisdom; The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion; and The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas are Setting Up a Generation for Failure (co-authored with Greg Lukianoff). The last two books each became New York Times bestsellers.

    At NYU-Stern, he is applying his research on moral psychology to business ethics, asking how companies can structure and run themselves in ways that will be resistant to ethical failures (see EthicalSystems.org). He is also the co-founder of HeterodoxAcademy.org, a collaboration among nearly 2500 professors who are working to increase viewpoint diversity and freedom of inquiry in universities.

    Jonathan Haidt Keynote Topics

    In this talk Jonathan presents the most important tools from positive psychology for understanding what is happening, fending off anxiety, and growing from adversity.

    How COVID 19 may alter trends affecting Gen Z and education.

    Jonathan analyzes the very bad trends in American democracy from before the pandemic hit, and discusses the many ways that the pandemic is changing those trends — some for better, some for worse. What is the outlook for American democracy, and what can citizens and leaders do to help? Includes advice on how to handle political disputes within any organization. (Draws on The Righteous Mind, and more recent research).

    Leading a company, or any group of human beings, has always been a challenge. Since 2017, that challenge has gotten much harder as political polarization coincides with the arrival of Gen Z in the workforce. Social media makes everything more explosive. And now with the pandemic and dark economic future… good leadership is so much harder, and more vital. In this talk I offer tools from social, moral, and positive psychology that can help leaders maximize cooperation, trust, and growth within their organizations.
