Program Details:

Have you ever wondered how what goes on inside our brains impacts how we interact within our organizations? Step into the fascinating world of neuroleadership based on David Rock's "SCARF" model and experience the ways in which your brain drives you toward - or away from - certain situations which, in turn, affects how you process information, learn, lead, and engage with others. . 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the building blocks of neuroscience and neuroleadership 
  2. Apply Rock's SCARF model to your organization's employee development and leadership needs 
  3. Use neuroscience to customize how you onboard, support, motivate, and develop employees and leaders in your organization.
