Create Sustainable Organizational Change with Neuroscience 

Meaningful organizational change doesn’t happen when companies and individuals are on auto-pilot.  Imposed change often elicits the neurochemical responses of fight, flight, freeze, flock, and freak. Even advice or information can be registered in the mind as unwarranted change and evoke one or more of these responses.

Sustainable organizational change rewires organizational processes and structures, analogous to the neuro-chemical systems of the entire body and brain.

What does it takes to unwire corporate and personal habits, and rewire new ones? This session will be a fun combination of experiential exercises, highlights of the latest neuroscience, and practical ways to implement positive organizational changes. Come to learn more than you expect!
