To offer neuroscience education that leads to organization-wide mindset shifts,
social innovation, resilience and culturally responsive leaders & learners.
WHAT I DO
I show leaders how to help their staff adopt flexible mindsets, become more willing to learn, experiment, and tap into their brain’s highest levels of creative problem-solving.
I combine my award-winning research at NYU, and fieldwork at the NYU Institute for Prevention Science, Phelps Lab for Neuroscience Research, the Department of Defense, Albert Einstein College of Medicine with training from meditation masters from India, Africa and Vietnam, and over a decade of counseling, consulting and teaching people on how to maximize their brain’s creative powers. I use interactive strategies as metaphors for scientific principles to help leaders internalize the idea of how these insights work in their own life, so they can then apply it in their work, relationships and daily interactions.
WHO IT'S FOR
For people who want to see their staff and clients be more open to try new approaches to learning and experiment with new ways of asking questions, solving problems, dealing with failure, and how to interact with others in socially intelligent ways.
WHY IT'S SPECIAL
Research shows that the traditional approach to Talent Development is flawed. In fact, it's backwards.
Without developing the right Mindset, employees, teams, and leaders will struggle to master the critical competenices and behaviors organizations require of them. And the impact on their performance – and that of the entire organization – can be dramatic.
Mindset Neuroscience (MNS) takes a unique, holistic approach to talent development. The process isn’t easy. But if you're looking to impact real, measurable growth and change in your organization – MNS training will help you with this.
HOW IT WORKS
Mindset Neuroscience activates change using this 4-phase framework:
- Organizational context first. Your organization's culture – including the beliefs and behaviors of leadership – have HUGE influences your employees' mindset, our attitudes, beliefs, and state. This is the starting point.
- The mindset of your employees fuels their emotional intelligence, relationship management skills, and perseverance
- Those ‘non-cognitive’ skills then drive their actions and behaviors
- Their behaviors drive performance – for themselves, their teams and the organization.
Mindset Neuroscience is based on this unique talent development paradigm.
Together with your organization, we develop skills by understanding the human experience first, then build forward from a deeper understanding of the impact of our behavior on ourselves and others.
