Brainwise: Wisdom to help manage a Global Workforce
It has been said that our brains are wired for a world that does not exist. We have the ability to detect threat in a microsecond and our brains narrow down to protect ourselves from any perceived danger. This vital ability has enabled us to survive for millennia and continues to protect us even today.
Learning to regulate the protection response when under pressure ensures we are able to also access our creative, thinking brain, which is essential for dealing with the complexity inherent in managing a global workforce.
Uncertainty is often part of dealing with new challenges or new people. When combined with a perceived change of status or relationships, it can impact how we approach our work and even our perception of fairness. HR professionals dealing with increasingly mobile, global workforces will benefit from understanding how our brains function when facing change and how we can manage the risks associated with it. Connie Henson will talk about ways to promote well-being and fuel high performance amongst people dealing with change.
