What is Neuroscience?
DISCOVERING THE CONNECTION BETWEEN NEUROSCIENCE AND PEOPLE
Neuroscience provides evidence about the human brain that helps better understanding about how brains are wired to improve connection between people. It helps us look into that interpretation of our world from the brain’s perspective: to understand how we and others might feel about change, emotional situations, decision making and team work.
At NeuroBron we provide practical tools and learning opportunities in the Neuroscience of Leadership to build an understanding of basic brain wiring and what this means for you. Our mission is to translate current information from the field of Neuroscience through educational and practical experiences for organisations, teams and individuals. We focus on helping leaders understand the brain – work environment interchange and the factors at play when making decisions, managing other people and coping with change.
NEUROSCIENCE IN THE WORKPLACE
PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF NEUROSCIENCE
Did you know that more money doesn’t equate with better performance? In fact, for some people, an increase in financial incentive is a demotivation for performance. Did you know that organisations with highly engaged people have a better bottom line than those organisations with a poorly engaged workforce? Neuroscience helps us understand that in an engaged state, a person is motivated toward high performance, naturally.
Our brain is wired for reward. In a reward state a brain is primed for learning, exploration of and connecting new ideas that lead to innovation. By identifying our preferences and natural motivations within our work environment, we can create that reward state in our brain. This means we will love what we do. When we love what we do, it seems effortless – time passes quickly. We have more energy for the other aspects of our lives outside work.
At NeuroBron we use PRISM Brain Mapping tool to help you understand and benchmark the attributes your organisation or team needs in order to be naturally driven toward high performance. We explore the types of activities people need to love to do in order to contribute successfully to your organisation’s performance. We provide learning experiences and use neuroscience based tools to link an individual’s brain wiring and what this means for identifying and fulfilling potential.
NEUROFOOD FOR THOUGHT
Sensemaking is the term I propose to revitalise relevance for organisational change management in rising to successfully answer future organisational challenges (PS the future is already here)…
In my previous article, I explored change and I proposed a shift from the illusion of control that the term change management insinuates toward the term sense-making.
Clearly a lot of people are interested in change both generally and specifically. The shallow surface provided by Google, provides a plethora of information, and I am driven to explore more about change and the notion of change management in general…
