Course Detail: P_NEURO - The Art & Science of Leadership: Neuroscience at Work

The field of neuroscience is opening up new possibilities to explore and apply to the challenges of engaging employees and achieving results.  In this engaging day, you’ll interact with your peers and two leaders from the neuroscience and talent development fields. Together, we’ll create a bridge between neuroscience and the art of leadership.  This day will enable you to:

  1. Increase your knowledge and recognition of basic brain structures and processes including neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to change.
  2. Identify the benefits of having a growth mindset as a leader.
  3. Recognize how emotions impact your leadership.
  4. Experiment with and reflect on your brain’s ability to:

      1. Increase focus
      2. Manage stress
      3. Navigate change
      4. Increase resiliency in the face of challenges

The day will include a panel of professionals from organizations in the region who will explore the possibilities and the challenges of applying neuroscience in the workplace. You will develop a realistic plan for implementing strategies to maximize brain functions for yourself and for your employees and identify additional resources to stimulate further study and understanding.

The University of Southern Maine is recognized by SHRM to offer Professional Development Credits (PDCs) for the SHRM-CPSM or SHRM-SCPSM.
