About the event

Have you ever wondered:

  • Why do people do what they do?
  • Why do they make the decisions they make?
  • Why do people respond differently to the same situation? 
  • Why people don't remember what they learnt in training or what was in the policies and procedures you got them to read? 
  • Why they can't keep their mind on the task? 
  • Why are your programs and initiatives, which you put so much time and effort into, not getting the engagement you were looking for?

The list goes on. 

Did you know?

  • The brain is the most complex organ in our bodies, but it has limitations.
  • Just 2% of dehydration impacts cognitive ability, memory, and decision-making, and so do different foods.
  • We only 'take in' about 20% of what we see.
  • We are all hardwired differently - what is important to you may not be important to someone else.
  • We all take in, process and retrieve information differently.
  • We all learn differently.
  • The impact of menopause and perimenopause on women in the workplace is accurate, and we need to stop ignoring that. etc.

As professionals in Safety, HR, Learning and Development, and as supervisors or leaders of people, we often feel like we're trying to put all the pieces of the puzzle together. But when we think we have all the pieces, we discover one is missing, and all our hard work doesn't quite hit the mark. This is because most times, we don't understand or fail to consider the impact of the human brain on what we are trying to do and achieve. We are all dealing with people with a brain, so it makes sense to understand how it works. This masterclass will equip you with the knowledge to leverage the human brain to enhance the way we engage with and work with our people. 

In this four-hour interactive, informative masterclass, you will gain invaluable insight into psychology and neuroscience. This knowledge will empower you to unlock human potential and build a more inclusive, physically and psychologically safe workplace where your people are engaged and your people and safety programs are more effective. 

Here is just an snap shot of what we cover in the not to be missed masterclass.
