APPLYING NEUROSCIENCE: Using neuroscience to foster workplace inclusion, diversity, & personal leadership

This course examines how rather than relying on fear-based approaches (ref Hofstede’s statement that “Culture is more often a source of conflict than synergy. Cultural differences are a nuisance at best and often a disaster.”), workplaces and communities can instead apply neuroscience insights and Positive Organisational Scholarship (POS) to pursue personal leadership, inclusion and diversity efforts in order to reap its moral, social, and economic benefits.

Drawing from the emerging field of applied neuroscience and POS, the course provides fundamental, hands-on, and up-to-date knowledge and skill-building that helps you better understand how the brain works and how you can make it work for you—and help your clients do the same.

In being able to more critically reflect on theories and practices that have been the mainstream and see where they can be enriched or debunked with insights from neuroscience, you and those you work with will be able to create and improve workplace policies and strategies on bias management, diversity & inclusion practices, change management, intercultural communication, work-life balance, and personal development.

This course is for you if are an in-house professional or consultant/trainer/multiplier/educator who helps those who:

  • are implementing diversity and inclusion initiatives within their organisations;
  • offer training and on-the-job professional development to help colleagues better communicate and collaborate;
  • work with those who appreciate “hard science”-based evidence for making system-wide and personal change.
