Work has changed hugely. And with it has come lots of threat and uncertainty. Since our brains are basically created to function as our “protector” from threat, those leading behavioral change realize better successes with their learners when aspects of how the brain perceives and processes change are taken into account when implementing learning and development initiatives.
Tricia Steege, Transformation Strategies will be sharing the latest evidence based neuroscience research for organizational change - what happens to the brain during change, how it perceives change and the specific tactical actions we can take as leaders to help our clients move from a place of protecting themselves to fully embracing what their organizational leaders are asking them to do.
By the end of this session, attendees will be able to:
1) Describe how implementing neuroscience concepts/activities facilitate change learning and adoption
2) Educate their leadership clients how neuroscience perspectives on change and understanding of people will help build confidence in their ability to lead others through change
3) Talk about how implementing change neuroscience concepts drive best practices throughout the ATD Capability Model
