What is your plan… to help your staff deal with crisis and uncertainty?


Why use Neuroscience to Increase Effectiveness

Science proves brain-based learning is effective in making long-lasting brain change. When you change the brain, you change the outcome. The Masters Course programs have been routinely studied by University of Colorado Denver. In a 2019 study, 100% of participants reported reduced stress, 88% increased collaboration, and 89% felt confident they had tools to create brain change.

The Neuroscience of Uncertainty

Use neuroscience to turn uncertainty into possibility. Our brain is constantly being rewired by what we think and our environment.  Learn how to rewire your brain using validated techniques of focus and un-focus and working with your pain points to overcome challenges. The tools are proven to increase cognitive flexibility, emotional intelligence, and cultivate a growth mindset.


Rethinking Cognitive Bias: Making Change

Like it or not we all have biases. The fact is, if we have a brain, we have a bias. In this short virtual course, we will explain how biases negatively affect critical thinking, give rise to racial injustice and, even affect scientific research and its application. We will explore what bias really looks like, dive into the neuroscience behind cognitive bias, learn validated tools to debias.

Registration is required.

All classes will be recorded and posted on YouTube.
