Neuroscience Meets Team Building

Agenda

Leading edge neuroscience has provided new insight into the biological principles that drive human behaviour.  There are many misconceptions about the brain.  Ongoing scientific discoveries continue to aid in our understanding of how our brain affects us as individuals and teams.  To understand how we can leverage this knowledge in the realm of both the individual and the organization we delve into a number of areas that help people maximize their potential. The idea of the ever-changing brain is reviewed and the impact that has on well-being along with tactics to influence the changes.   We explore concepts relating to the life of brain cells, the idea of transitory brain connections, the ageing brain and the idea of brain re-programming.
Dr. John Crawford explains in real world language the neuroscientific principles that can be used to increase personal effectiveness, team strength and cohesiveness by maximizing brain health.  A unique team building activity will demonstrate the principles in real time.  This workshop style demonstration will appeal to both the analytical and creative natures of all.
You will learn how to:

  • Recognize how creativity and cognitive change relates to improved brain function and impacts your teams and their engagement.
  • Understand “brain plasticity” – specifically neuroplasticity
  • Identify factors which may contribute to increased brain productivity
  • Takeaway practical ideas to apply personally and professionally
