The Neuroscience of change (London)
Neuroscience, the study of the nervous system including the brain, is transforming our understanding of what drives cognition and fundamental human behaviours.
The mind’s ability to process information is greater than any super computer, enabling humans to achieve and continue achieving new and unimaginable goals.
But despite all this incredible power, how we deal with stress, manage conflict, and resolve differences remains fundamental to our ongoing survival. Trends like mindfulness and emotional intelligence are beginning to find their way into all levels of the organisation and individuals are taking greater responsibility for their emotional wellbeing – particularly as technology advances at an exponential rate.
The London chapter is very pleased to welcome back, Hilary Scarlett as she helps us understand what neuroscience can teach us about managing change and what we can expect in the future in terms of how we, as change managers, support organisations going through rapid technology and organisational change.
Hilary Scarlett is an international speaker, consultant, author and Director and Founder of Scarlett & Grey. Her work has spanned Europe, the US and Asia and concentrates on the development of people-focused change management programmes, coaching and employee engagement.
She has recently conducted research into applied neuroscience with four major organisations in the private and public sectors. Hilary has also been working with Professor Walsh of University College London to apply cognitive neuroscience to practical management tools. Her book, Neuroscience for Organizational Change – an evidence-based, practical guide to managing change was published in February 2016 and has been widely praised.
