Neuroscience 

Neuroscience will give an introduction into a fascinating field of study.  Delegates will get an understanding of the Brain and some of the basic systems in how the brain works.  The thinking Brain, the Emotional Brain and the Automatic Brain.  Why these systems are important, how they effect us in our jobs and in our interactions with colleagues staff and managers.

The session looks at how habits are formed, Mind Set and the link between the two, changing habits to change your mind set.  We look at Threat and Reward in the workplace and how the environment impacts on performance.

Emotional intelligence, awareness of self and our impact on others but also a greater understanding of the emotional states of others and what we can do to manage that effectively.

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

    The sessions sound interesting, but the location is a two hour round trip. How do we go about booking session locally?

    Hi, will more of these sessions be run across the country - my team is split across the UK, but this type of content is something which will benefit all. My interest is from a people engagement perspective. If there are not going to be more sessions is there any potential to share the session content to be delivered locally?
