Reboot Your Transformational Skills presented by David Mantica –Session 2 Your Brain and Work: Know the Challenges 09/01/2020


NCPMI in partnership with SoftEd is offering the Reboot Your Transformational Skills series. These free sessions will be hosted online via ZOOM by David Mantica and his associates.   

This series of 5 sessions will be held Tuesdays for one hour 12pm – 1pm EST.

Your Brain and Work: Know the Challenges

Our brains have not evolved to match the needs of white color business environments.  In many cases the natural reaction your brains have to issues in business go completely counter to what you should/need to do.  Aside from this, no one trains or teaches no this subject.  We brush it under the rug and just assume we will adapt or worse yet, assume it really isn’t a problem.

The reality is the problem is epidemic and shows up in the staggering increases in stress related illness and death and the exceedingly high level of disengaged workers.  It is staggering to see the number of business professionals who don’t even know what self-talk is and the dangerous it products if left unchecked.

This web seminar will get into the very heart of brain dysfunction when tied to business interaction. The areas that will be covered included:

               -The physiology of emotional intelligence

               -Affective forecasting and its impact on decision making

               -Cognitive biases and its impact on day to day business interaction

               -Neuroplasticity and change management.  How hard it is to change

               -Your lazy brain, how stereotypes and decision patterns are developed

               -Self-talk and stress

Within all these topics we will discuss techniques you can use to help you work around the innate limitations your brain causes.  If we let our brains act instinctually against the business challenges face each day we limited our productivity and career growth.
