Target Audience: Executives
We often think that people cannot change. If you put together research from neuroscience and complexity science, there is evidence that people can change – it is a straightforward matter of applying the right leadership strategy for the right results. People can and do change with the right approach. Plus, there is a time to develop employees and a time to manage an employee into a new position or out of the organization. Your job as an executive is knowing when and how to apply the appropriate strategies.
Target Audience: Women
We often think that outward circumstances are what matter, but science is beginning to demonstrate what many self-improvement gurus have been stating for years. We do create our own reality. The good news is you can learn to use your brain’s unique design so you can get what you want in your life. In this workshop you will learn three concrete actions that re-shape the activity patterns in your brain that can eventually lead to new results.
Target Audience: Human Resource Professionals
Are you a human resource professional who is responsible for training and development in addition to everything else? This overview on the latest insights about learning and change will allow you to select the right solutions for the right kind of training or change.
Target Audience: Learning/Performance Professionals or Educators
Memory is what makes learning stable over time. For trainers, consultants, coaches and educators – our task is not only creating new learning and memories, but also handling deep-seated old memories cemented in nonproductive behaviors.
In this interactive workshop, you have the opportunity to learn the latest information from neuroscience and cognitive psychology on how the brain’s various memory systems work. This information demonstrates why some learning doesn’t transfer as easily as other learning – from the classroom to the workplace or from the classroom to life skills and habits.
Target Audience: Professionals in High Stress Organizations
Are you getting close to career burnout? It is time to re-map your career. In this interactive and reflective presentation you will have time to consider your vision, values, purpose and your strengths. You’ll identify one or two key actions that you can take to reinvigorate you and get you leading your career.
Target Audience: Organizational Development Professionals
The living systems paradigm is the newest scientifically-based management technology. In today’s volatile and chaotic marketplace, organizations must learn the principles of rapid evolutionary change in order to survive. Complexity theory provides a beautifully simple explanation drawn from nature to illustrate how living systems change over time. Learn how businesses can transform into sense-and-respond organizations that can rapidly adapt as needed to changing economic demands. OD professionals, with their focus on organizational systems, are ripe for becoming the agents of the change that’s needed today.
During this interactive presentation we look at the basics of complexity theory to get you up to speed, and then we look at the limitations as it has been applied to business systems up to this point. Finally we will look at what insight our profession can offer to move past these limitations.
Target Audience: Busy Managers
Have you noticed that you are having trouble feeling productive? During this presentation you will look at two kinds of interruptions: internal chatter and external clutter. You will identify what works for you and one or two key actions to apply tomorrow at work.
Target Audience: Managers and Leaders
We often think that outward circumstances in our work with leading people are what matter. If you put together research from neuroscience and complexity science there is evidence that we do create our own reality. The good news is you can learn to use your brain’s unique design so you can get what you want in your life. In this workshop you will learn three concrete actions that re-shape the activity patterns in your brain that can eventually lead to new results.
Target Audience: Everyone
Recent neuroscience, cognitive psychology, and evolutionary science have made outstanding strides in explaining how our brain influences what happens in our bodies. As you may know, our thoughts and emotions have a large influence on what our bodies do. You can greatly increase your power to create your own health by understanding just how these processes work in the body. We use an interactive approach that allows each participant to focus on their own issues while learning the brain’s connections with our immune and other bodily systems.
