Exploring Neuroscience: The Science Behind Effective and lasting Corporate Culture transformation and employee mental wellbeing

A Full Day Masterclass

Neuroscience is revealing how behaviour originates in the brain. This knowledge gives HR practitioners a deeper and clearer understanding of how to support teams, drive engagement and enable effective change. The learning from our colleagues in the science community is shining a light on how behaviour and mindset matters, how the right environments create the best ideas and how language, consistency and emotion all play a leading role. We now have the evidence to support what we have always instinctively understood.
