The field of neuroscience is opening up new possibilities to explore and apply to the challenges of engaging employees and achieving results.  In this engaging workshop, you’ll interact with two leaders from the neuroscience and talent development fields. Together, we’ll create a bridge between neuroscience and the art of leadership.  This workshop will enable you to:

  • Increase your knowledge and recognition of basic brain structures and processes including neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to change.
  • Identify the benefits of having a growth mindset as a leader.
  • Recognize how emotions impact your leadership.
  • Experiment with and reflect on your brain’s ability to:
    • Increase focus
    • Manage stress
    • Navigate change
    • Increase resiliency in the face of challenges

You will develop a realistic plan for implementing strategies to maximize brain functions for yourself and for your employees and identify additional resources to stimulate further study and understanding.
