    Objectives and Outcomes: The Neuroscience of Culture Change
    The biggest challenge organizations face when changing their culture is developing long-term behavior patterns as quickly and as cost-effectively as possible. Most approaches to culture change fall short because they focus almost entirely on raising awareness. Learn about the Neuroleadership Institute's science-based approach to culture change. During this 60 min-session we will cover topics such as:

    • Culture as shared everyday habits
    • The science of habit formation
    • The “how” of change: priorities, habits, systems
    • How to create leadership principles and habits that encourage and reinforce behavior change (Simple, sticky, coherent)

    Date: Wednesday, May 19, 2021

    Time:  12:00-1:00 pm eastern

    Looking to create more energy, action and better outcomes for change within in your organization?

    Most organizations focus on the problems, issues and failures associated with change in an attempt to problem solve their way to success. Although it is important to understand these, behavioral science tells us that if we work and think differently using a success view point, we can build more curiosity as well as increase enthusiasm and optimism for change. In this engaging session, participants will learn about the power of the positive, the positive change principle and how it can be simply and practically applied into how they better execute organizational change.

    Learning Objectives:

    1.            Differentiate and understand the benefit of leading with positive versus current organizational change practices

    2.            Understand and be able to incorporate the use of positive actions throughout change execution.

    3.            Gain key learning to add to your change toolkit to put into practice immediately!
