Neal Roese, Ph.D., is a globally recognized theorist and expert in the psychology of judgment and decision-making. His research examines basic cognitive processes underlying choice, focusing on how people think about decision options, make predictions about the future, and revise understandings of the past. He is the John L. and Helen Kellogg Professor of Marketing at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and is jointly appointed as Professor of Psychology at Northwestern University. He teaches MBA, Ph.D., and executive education audiences about the psychology of decision making, consumer behavior, and brand strategy. Today, it is harder to maintain friendships than ever before with our busy schedules and demanding careers. Friendship is changing in this modern age of technology, and people now have larger social networks with weaker intimate ties. However, it is still just as important to prioritize stronger friendships, because having these friendships helps you to perform better at work and even to earn more. Neal Roese discusses why being too busy for friends won’t help with your career.
