Event description

Description

Please note: This event is for DfT SCS only.

Although applied neuroscience is still in its infancy, it is already providing significant insights into people, teams and organisations. It brings to light what enables us to be focused, to learn and to perform at our best, especially during times of change and uncertainty. Applied neuroscience enables leaders to work effectively: by understanding our brains, we can work with the physiology, not fight it.

This interactive half-day seminar has been designed to provide you with:

  • An understanding of some of the basics about the brain and what it needs to work at its best

  • Deeper understanding of why the brain finds uncertainty and organisational change hard, and what leaders can do to help people stay resilient and work at their best

  • Greater self-awareness about states of mind and that of colleagues, and how to help yourself and others get ‘back on track’

  • A practical planning tool to lead through uncertainty, based on what the brain needs

  • An opportunity to make sense of what you have heard through reflection and discussion.
