Leading Through Change with Brain-Based Leadership: A Zoom Webinar Presented by The Business Solutions Institute of Roberts Wesleyan College
Leading Through Change with Brain-Based Leadership
A Zoom Webinar Presented by Dave Vedro, Director of The Business Solutions Institute of Roberts Wesleyan College
Leaders at all levels within an organization from the front line to the boardroom are facing an unprecedented challenge to lead through very complex and uncertain times. Our old leadership models will no longer work in these new times. A better understanding of what drives our behaviors is needed. Brain-based leadership is based on the science of how our brains process our environment and drive our behavior. A leader who understands these brain-based principles will be highly effective in today’s “new normal.”
Dr. David Rock founder of the Neuroleadership Institute, states, “Crises like the coronavirus pandemic have the potential to make employees feel anxious and overwhelmed. Confronted with endless uncertainty about their health, their finances, and their loved ones, people enter a “threat” response – a fight or flight response in the brain that compromises the functioning of the prefrontal cortex, diminishing the capacity to focus, collaborate with others, and solve problems. The result is a reduced ability to think clearly, precisely when we need it the most.”
This webinar will provide some insight into leading people through complex change using Brain-Based Principles. It will provide an understanding and a foundation for leaders to effectively lead in their organizations - resulting in higher engagement, creativity, collaboration, and productivity. This webinar will discuss the theory for understanding how our brain reacts under stress and the strategies to use to lower our natural threat response.
If you are a leader at any level within an organization, you should attend. The information and strategies covered in this one-hour webinar will provide a foundation which can be immediately applied- enabling you to be a more effective and responsive leader.
We will cover:
- How the brain responds to external threats and how that drives one’s behavior.
- How using David Rock’s SCARF Model provides a framework to lower the threat level for an individual or situation.
- Specific strategies to employ as a leader within your organization to achieve greater results.
We believe the stronger our area businesses are, then the stronger and more vibrant will be our communities in which we live. The Business Solutions Institute at Roberts Wesleyan stands ready to serve.
