Marie-Hélène Budworth


I study motivation and learning.  I am interested in how people think, how people process information, and how people make sense of the world. 

As a career academic in the field of organizational behaviour and human resource management, I have a keen interest in how individuals learn, develop, and gain access to opportunities.  I am most interested in the differences that exist between individuals in how they navigate the world.  What makes you keep going when I am ready to give up?  Who succeeds in the face of significant barriers?  Who views a challenge as an opportunity to learn? This blog will address some of these questions and any other interesting ideas that come across my desk.  My viewpoints are largely informed by my research in this area.
