WORKSHOPS FOR YOUR
ORGANIZATION - THE EXECUTIVE BRAIN
Today's organizations face changes on all fronts - tougher
competition, leaner staffs, advanced technology and constantly
changing regulations. Successful organizations require minds that
offer solutions and contribute ideas that enhance the bottom line.
They need innovative people who work effectively in collaborative
relationships and respond resourcefully
Competitive companies value their employees' brainpower and
recognize this resource as the means to give them the
competitive edge they need. Just as companies once provided
computer classes to improve productivity, they now train their
associates in techniques to operate their mental hardware and
Research shows that the
brain operates much like a muscle. Just as individuals exercise
their bodies at a gym, improving their health and overall physical
function, the brain can be exercised to improve overall function and
Jobs are rapidly changing. Today’s
workers are asked to initiate new solutions. Changes in the modern
work environment are requiring associates to develop new skills and
abilities. New skills, however, are not generated by demanding them
or writing them into the performance goals. Before people can
display new or enhanced abilities, they must first develop new
neural pathways, pathways that enable them to produce new insights
and abilities. Consider a rural area that has few roads and limited
accessibility. As the area develops and more roads are constructed,
access expands to more locations. The same concept applies to the
brain. The more neural pathways the brain develops, the greater its
access to creative solutions and abilities.
Smart organizations have discovered
the fastest, easiest and most inexpensive way to improve the bottom
line relies on tapping into a vastly underutilized resource: the
brains of their associates.
conducted by The Ohio State University and the University of San
Diego have validated this program's effectiveness. Participants
saved seven to 10 hours per week, produced more effective solutions
in less time and were able to assimilate change quicker and easier.
Imagine the possibilities with seven to 10 additional hours each and

Two: The BrainPower Program
The ability to acquire,
assimilate and use information defines the passport essential for
success in today's world. The rapid expansion of information
combined with the slow and tedious reading processes taught in
school fall short of productivity goals demanded by today's world.
Learn to upgrade your mental software and reap the benefits of
greater efficiency, increased productivity and enhanced morale. This
is a dynamic program based on the latest scientific research;
research that provides the tools and techniques that will enable you
to read faster, comprehend more fully, integrate information more
usefully and retain the knowledge for long-term use. In any
organization true leadership requires the ability to assimilate,
integrate and share information effectively.
Using Your Brain for a Change
Every day it seems we get
hit with another change in the economy, our industry or our personal
lives. The most valuable tool for dealing with change is the mind.
Just as you can upgrade your computer software for improved
efficiency, you can learn to upgrade your mental software, resulting
in more effective performance. Using your Brain for a Change has
brought together the best insights of theory and practice, and
focused them in an intensive session. The results are skills and
perspectives that will reshape your thinking and enable you to deal
with change more resourcefully. It will present an approach with a
set of skills as precise as a computer program and as easy to learn
as a cell phone. Using Your Brain for a Change is about learning how
your brain is uniquely wired for change and what you personally need
for change to work well for you.
Workshop Four The
Business of Thinking
Management is a thinking
business. The best can outsmart and excel in how they think. Yet
most problem-solving processes only engage a few of the brain's
mental areas. The ability to develop innovative and effective
solutions requires techniques and processes that tap into all areas
of the brain. Whole brain thinking skills enable you to produce
better ideas and execute them in less time. This is done by teaching
you how to tap into more of your brain's natural thinking ability.
You will learn techniques to increase your effectiveness in all
areas of the workplace, enabling you to do a better job and achieve
more job satisfaction.
Communicating for Results
Effective and dynamic
communication fuels the lifeblood of successful organizations. It
is, however, a complex and often misunderstood skill that frequently
leads to miscommunication, conflicts and non-productive activities.
This occurs because the circuitry of each brain is uniquely "wired"
leading to different perceptions and responses to similar
situations. During the Communicating for Results program, develop a
greater understanding about the uniqueness of your brain's wiring
and that of others. This new learning provides fresh insights to the
communication needs of others. The outcome brings together a set of
skills and knowledge that lead to faster agreements with less
