THE CURE FOR STUPIDITY: USING BRAIN SCIENCE TO EXPLAIN IRRATIONAL BEHAVIOR
Understanding Why They Don’t Understand You
Economists tell us that given the opportunity, people will behave rationally. If you’re anything like me, you have countless examples DAILY of people behaving irrationally! What would the world look like if we could cure the stupidity around us? Imagine freedom from frustration. Imagine the peace. This session, based on Eric M. Bailey’s bestselling book, can fix that. This session can change your life.
WHY DIVERSITY TRAINING DOESN’T WORK: A NEW CONVERSATION ON BIAS, INCLUSION, AND PRIVILEGE
Every organization is becoming increasingly focused on the topic of “Diversity” and/or “Inclusion.” However, research indicate as that most diversity training doesn’t work for one specific reason based in universal human psychology. In this session, we will learn to recognize and overcome this hurdle and finally make a meaningful impact on your organization.
I THINK THEREFORE I ERR
Overcoming the natural barriers to communication
Overcoming the natural barriers to achievement
Overcoming the natural barriers to leadership
There are two things that get in the way of our success when dealing with other people: Our Mouths and Our Brains. If not for those two things… In this session we will learn to recognize the natural human reactions that cause upset, frustration, and interpersonal tension.
WHOLLY SHIFT: A NEW CONVERSATION ON CHANGE MANAGEMENT
It is not news that the world is changing, but the rate of change is changing exponentially. We are at a point in time where technology and expectations are changing faster than humans can adapt to change. This session will walk through the brain science behind change.
WE’VE BEEN HAVING THE WRONG CONVERSATION ABOUT MILLENNIALS
Revisiting a Conversation Generations in the Making
Millennials are _________. The first thing that comes to mind is probably something negative (entitled, lazy, tech-obsessed) or possibly something positive (creative, empowered, principle-driven). Either way, if this is the conversation you’re having about millennials, you’re having the wrong conversation. This session will dive deep into how the Millennial conversation is an analogy to our divided society and we will look at why we call them millennials in the first place (hint, it’s to help identify us vs. them).
NOT ANOTHER TEAM BUILDING!: TRUST, EMPATHY, AND THE PURSUIT OF TEAMWORK
Organizations waste so much time and money doing “team building” exercises in hopes that a ropes course or a trust fall will be powerful enough to combat the real culture deficiencies like a lack of trust, communication errors, and work ethic. This session will explore and leverage the brain science that leads to highly functional teams.
BOLDLY NAVIGATING DANGEROUS DISCOURSE AND DIFFICULT CONVERSATIONS
If there is one thing the world needs now, more than ever, it would be the ability to stop avoiding difficult conversations. Diving into brain science and anthropology, it is easy to see why these types of conversations are so difficult for us. In fact, according to neuroscience, we are less like humans and more like animals during these conversations. This session provides valuable insight and practical tools to improve the skill of navigating dangerous discourse.
