KEYNOTE PRESENTATION: The Neuroscience behind real leadership
Dr Hannah Critchlow delves into the minds of leaders, using neuroscience to unravel the thinking behind decision-making and behaviour to help us become the best leaders and people managers we can be.
What makes our minds unique? Are behaviours predetermined and to what extent can we change? How do our perceptions of the world affect our decision-making? How do fear and stress affect our behaviour? How can we promote creativity and problem solving in our workplaces? What can we do to refine our focus and attention? Can we invoke a more ethical collective consciousness? Is it possible to boost altruism across society?
Join Hannah as she taps into the neurons that will help us understand ourselves, others and our world.
