CS Local Wales welcome Home Office Leadership in Action team for an introduction into a fascinating field of study - neuroscience.

The session looks at how habits are formed, mindset and the link between the two and changing habits to change your mindset. We look at 'threat' and 'reward' in the workplace and how the environment impacts on performance.

Delegates will get an understanding of the brain and some of the basic ways the brain works, the thinking brain, the emotional brain and the automatic brain. Why these systems are important, how they affect us in our jobs and in our interactions with colleagues staff and managers. Emotional intelligence, awareness of self and our impact on others and also a greater understanding of the emotional states of others and what we can do to manage that effectively.

Delegates will also learn about neuroplasticity, how to develop the brain, the inverted U of performance and how emotions are contagious.

By the end of the event you will:

  • improve your understanding of how neuroscience can impact your work
  • have developed a broader understanding of a national subject impacting the Civil Service
  • be able to apply the learning back in your workplace
  • network with colleagues from other government departments
