He is a research psychologist and is recognized as an international expert in the “Psychology of Technology.” Over the past 30-plus years, Dr. Rosen and his colleagues have examined reactions to technology among more than 70,000 people in the United States and in 22 other countries. His latest book, The Distracted Mind: Ancient Brains in a High-Tech World (MIT Press, 2016), has generated strong public interest and has been quoted in dozens of media outlets.
Dr. Rosen has been featured extensively in television, print, and radio media and has been a commentator on 60 Minutes, The Daily Show, Good Morning America, NPR, and CNN. We are incredibly grateful for the time he spent with TheSchoolHouse302. His advice on staying focused to reach your goals is critical to leadership.
- Listen to what Dr. Rosen says about how we are “easily disruptable” by the distractors in our lives. Those distractors from devices, alerts and notifications, and the other distractors that live between our ears. He describes the distractors that increase anxiety and control our behavior, but he also notes what we can do about it to stay in control as leaders.
- Larry praised his co-author, founder and executive director of Neuroscape, Adam Gazzaley for his amazing work. You have to hear why he believes Dr. Gazzaley will win the Nobel Peace Prize for his extraordinary accomplishments with therapeutic video games, particularly for ADHD.
- You can’t miss what he says about the real loser with technology–face-to-face conversations.
- Larry talked about discovering the neuroscience of what’s happening when we are not productive.
- He describes how he continues to learn and grow by living the motto on the Life is Good t-shirts, “Do what you like, like what you do.”
- He tells our listeners that retirement for him has a different definition than it did for his father. Retirement for Larry is being active and doing what he chooses to do based on what interests him the most.
- Lastly, you have to hear what he says about how to use technology as a tool.
Dr. Larry Rosen’s One Thing Series interview is jam packed with incredible practical advice for leaders and how to maximize the use of technology without it completely using you so that you can reach your goals.
