An introduction to Neuroscience

Glass skull

Join us in Bristol for our latest discovery session, an introduction to Neuroscience, delivered by colleagues from the Home Office.

Delegates will get an understanding of the Brain and some of the basic systems of how 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.

 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.
