The neuroscience of change – how we think and act in times of unprecedented change (Webinar event, 2 April)

12:30pm Thursday, 2 April 2020
1:30pm Thursday, 2 April 2020

The Auckland Chapter is trying new ways to keep our change community connected.  This webinar will explore the link between neuroscience and our behaviours, as we navigate the current global change we are experiencing and how it impacts us both individually and collectively.

Join us for an interactive and informal webinar with our guest host Elizabeth Howells from PeopleCentric. Elizabeth is a business psychologist with a driving interest in what makes individuals, teams and business ‘tick’.

During this time of unprecedented change with the Covid-19 threat to business and our society, the topic of neuroscience and peoples’ behaviours is of great interest to us as change professionals, and how best to deal with it.  The topics we want to cover are:

  • Uncertainty & humans’ reaction to it
  • What leadership style is most effective in times of great uncertainty?
  • If people are expected to work remotely, how do we provide the right sort of support to ensure they continue to be productive
  • What influence does personality type have on how people respond to major change?
  • How do we navigate and manage stress?
  • How do you minimise the fight and/or flight factor?

We want this session to be highly interactive and relatively informal – we have no doubt there will be some great questions for Elizabeth during this webinar.

This is a safe and pragmatic way for us to continue to ‘meet up’ and keep connected in these uncertain times.

We look forward to your active participation!
