Wired to Resist: The Neuroscience of Change

Wired to Resist: the neuroscience of change by Britt Andreatta, CEO of 7th Mind Inc.

In this interactive session, you will:

  • Learn how all change activates the survival and failure centers in the brain
  • Discover how to use the new Change Quest to assess and predict the impact of different types of change
  • Identify ways to intentionally increase the resilience of your people and organization
Change is a journey, not an event. The reason 50-70% of change initiatives fail is that typical approaches to change management don't take into account human biology and that we are wired to resist change. Today’s change occurs in a myriad of ways from shifting technology to reorganizing functions to seeking new customers and operating globally. But the pace of today’s change is pushing the limits of even the most agile organizations and people. Recent discoveries in neuroscience illuminate how we learn, respond to change and ways we can maximize both flexibility and resilience. In this session, Dr. Britt Andreatta will share the latest discoveries about the brain, and how to harness human biology to reduce resistance to change and change fatigue. Author of Wired to Resist, she will provide key principles that maximizes the brain’s capacity to learn and embrace change. Leave this interactive session with new strategies for thriving through change and helping others do the same. Download Speaking Topics This 75-minute keynote includes three 5-minute discussions where participants apply the concepts and model to their organization. With 90-minutes, this keynote can be customized to include some high-level information on how to maximize the skills for the different leaders of change.

Wired to Connect: The Neuroscience of Teams

Wired to Connect the Neuroscience of Teams

In this interactive session, you will:

  • Learn how certain brain structures are activated when we work in teams
  • Discover how you can help your talent work most effectively in teams, enhancing collaboration and engagement
  • Explore how metrics of inclusion and psychological safety are based on teams
  • Identify ways to intentionally increase the effectiveness of all teams in your organization
Teams power more and more of today’s work. In fact, nearly 90% of today’s workers say that they spend one-third to one-half of each day working in teams. Yet 86% of employees and executives cite lack of effective teamwork and collaboration as the source of workplace failures. Add the challenge of remote teams and cross cultural communication, and it is no surprise that teams can make or break the competitive advantage of any organization. Recent discoveries in neuroscience illuminate how we can build better and more effective teams. Dr. Britt Andreatta will share the latest research about the brain, and how to harness human biology to enhance collaboration, trust, productivity, and why meaningful metrics of inclusion stem from working in groups. Britt will provide key principles for maximizing the brain’s capacity to work effectively in teams and creating psychological safety.

The Neuroscience of Innovation: Empowering New Ways of Thinking and Doing

The Neuroscience of Innovation: Empowering New Ways of Thinking and Doing

In this interactive session, you will:

  • Discover the critical differences between creativity and innovation
  • Learn the brain science that sets up high levels of creativity and innovation
  • Explore the behaviors or managers and leaders that damage or even kill innovation
  • Leave with new strategies you can use to create a culture that drives creativity and innovation
Innovation is often the big differentiator between organizations that succeed and those that stall or even fail. This is especially true during times like this global pandemic—every industry is being tasked with reinventing itself amidst economic chaos. A study by Harvard found that organizations that thrived through the Great Depression adopted an entrepreneurial mindset and sparked innovation. In fact, 84% of executives consider their future success to be dependent on innovation and high performing organizations are 5X more likely to build a culture of innovation across business functions. But despite how important innovation is, most organizations struggle with creating the right environment to support and encourage both innovation and creativity (they are different). You’ll discover how they are different and why both are critical to your organization’s success. You’ll learn what sets up the human brain to achieve the highest states of both, and the behaviors of managers and leaders that damage or even kill innovation. You'll leave this engaging and interactive session with strategies you can use today to create both the climate and culture that promotes true innovation and creativity.

  • Learn the brain science of purpose and why it fuels human motivation around the world
  • Discover how purpose can enhance engagement, productivity, leadership and retention
  • Identify ways to intentionally leverage the power of purpose to increase your organization’s success
Purpose is the driving force that gives our lives meaning. Humans are wired for purpose and in fact, recent discoveries in neuroscience offer a fascinating look into what motivates us to become our best selves. The ability to align purpose is what distinguishes the most effective leaders from the rest, and purpose is at the heart of engagement, productivity, and retention. It’s no wonder that organizations that know how to harness the power of purpose thrive and excel while their peers falter or fail.
