Psychological distance: how to bridge it to become successful?

Category: Webinar

Four types of psychological distance impede us from achieving our professional goals:

  • Social distance (between ourselves and others), 
  • Temporal distance (between present and future), 
  • Spatial distance (between far away and close by), and
  • Experiential distance (between imagining and experiencing).

Research shows that successful professionals are those who understand and acknowledge the effects of these psychological distances. We face these challenges on a daily basis – and the way we tackle, and bridge, these gaps has a significant impact on our professional success.

In this webinar, Prof Dirk Buyens will discuss with you these four types of psychological distance, their impact on business, and how we can adapt to psychological distance via several self-management techniques. Join us to learn how this can propel your professional life forward!
