The Bystander Effect: Why We Don’t Do What We Say We’d Do

Speakers:

Matt Langdon, CEO and Founder Hero Round Table

 

The opposite of a hero is not a villain; it’s a bystander. When a hero sees something they know is wrong, they do something about it. A bystander literally stands by. Join Matt Langdon from the Hero Round Table to learn about the barriers to heroic action and the ways you can use hero training to make it more likely that you’ll help others in their moment of need. We all say we’d do the right thing when asked, but why do so few act when actually called upon? With real life examples and the results of research, you’ll leave this session ready to be a hero.
