Conservation professionals are becoming increasingly cognizant of their need to better predict human behavior as it relates to environmental conservation. This presentation explained the five psychological indicators that predict 34% of variation in a professional’s capacity to apply new skills effectively after a training: meaningful ownership, effective autonomy, explicit need, group efficacy, and self-regulated knowledge. Additionally, the presenter discussed why these indicators are critical to the long-term success of conservation professionals.
