MEGA SESSION The Neuroscience of Change

2019 Annual Conference & Exposition
Become better able to design and facilitate change strategies that take neuroscience into consideration—the human side of change.

Change has always been with us; some say it is the only constant. What, then, is so different about change at this time? Things seems to be moving faster and with a disruptive unpredictability. Our biology, evolution, education and experiences have not readied us to easily navigate this path. Many people muddle through, always wondering if they will be able to stand the next test of change. Employees are not prepared. HR has a crucial role in helping people and organizations position themselves “just right” to win in times of change. This workshop focuses on understanding the neuroscience of human change, explains why it can be so difficult for people to adapt, and explores key practical strategies for leading the human side of change.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how the brain reacts during times of change.
  • Better position the role of HR during organizational change.
  • Learn to identify key neuroscientific considerations when designing change interventions and strategies.
Date(s) & Time(s): 
Wednesday, June 26, 2019 - 11:30am to 12:30pm
