Femke van Horen in Panel of KennisCafé

People who see images of elderly people walk a little slower, unless they find elderly people stupid. If you see a can of Pepsi in the film Home Alone then the chance that you order Coca Cola is smaller. On our own, we flee from a room that fills with smoke, but if there are others who just sit down, we do the same. If we smell freshly baked cookies, we want to buy them and in an elevator with strangers we all look in the same direction.


Research into manipulation, influencing, priming, nudging, anchoring, stimulation abound. Advertisers do it for sure, your environment may also do it, even our own government uses these resources to give citizens a push in the right direction.
Are we really so easy to influence - without being aware of it?

Dedicated to this question was the 16 October edition of the KennisCafé. The KennisCafé is a co-production of: KNAW, De Volkskrant, NEMO KennisLink and De Balie. The panel consisted of Prof. Denise de Ridder, Dr. Eva van den Broek and Dr. Femke van Horen of the Marketing Department of the Vrije Universiteit.

Why CEOs Devote So Much Time to Their Hobbies
Why CEOs Devote So Much Time to Their Hobbies? Because it may help them to become better leaders, Emilia Bunea, Svetlana Khapova and Evgenia Lysova explain in a well-received article that has been published in Harvard Business Review on October 8.

The authors investigated the reasons why CEO’s devote so much time on their hobbies. Interestingly, as the article reveals serious leisure time may be helpful for someone to become a better leader. Various conclusions were drawn explaining why for CEO’s taking time from their already impossibly busy schedules for devoting it on non-work activities can be proved to have positive implications on their work.
Seemingly, finding passion at, and outside of, work is found to be quite common for those in leadership positions and apparently offers a lot more than stress relief. True passions seem to offer detachment time from the increasing stress of business life as it is a time where one is able to ‘switch off’ and disconnect from everything else- something which in turn is proves to be beneficial for better job performance-. Passionate leisure time may help develop coping strategies for the ever-increasing demands of top jobs; it gives a necessary human sense of ‘full control’, a feeling often missing at workplace; teaches ways to build deeper, quality connections within a team; offers an understanding of the best strategies of leading others to successful results and ultimately, helps create a better and more influential, humble leader by offering challenges awakening the passion to improve and reach new levels of mastery.

The article has been selected in the top 10 hotlist of HBR. For the article please click here.
