The 21st century is the century of the brain. Applied neuroscience is a fast-growing field that helps managers and businesses to facilitate decisions and take actions. Neuroscience helped increase our understanding of many aspects of human behaviour, like leadership, motivation, decision-making, etc. In short, it helped us to understand how people (within organisations) relate to each other and of course how people react to change. This seminar will target at enhancing managers’ and HR executives’ understanding in leading people within organisations. It will seek to increase awareness of what is called as Neuro-HR practices and it will help them understand how to lead their people based on brain-based concepts. By using neuroscience, managers and HR professionals can uncover ways to boost their capabilities and be better prepared in adjusting their behaviour for challenging business environments.
