Revitalizing with the Brain in Mind:
Counter Social Stress and Design a Brain-Healthy Workplace
Are you and your employees suffering from work-related stress? Stressful social interactions at work trigger the brain’s natural fear and survival responses and can decrease our ability to solve problems, make decisions, and collaborate with each other.
During this workshop, Drs. Thompson and Liu will demonstrate how the latest trends from neuroscience and positive psychology provide a guide for leaders and business owners to create a brain-healthy workplace. They will present techniques to revitalize at the level of individuals, leaders and organizations.
