"Using Your Brain to Win in Today’s Hyper Paced World"

Holly G Green


Your brain is your most powerful competitive weapon –if you know how to use it properly.  The human brain is an amazing tool. Yet, many of its built-in thought patterns and ways of working do not serve business leaders well. The brain can process large amounts of information. It has a real talent for forming patterns and connections. And it loves to answer questions and solve problems.  It also has a tendency to see what it expects to see, overlook data that contradicts its prevailing view of the world, and have greater confidence in its decision-making abilities than it should. In order to become more effective leaders, we need a much deeper understanding of how our brain works and how it often gets in the way of winning.

Leveraging the latest in neuroscience, in this session, you’ll get tools, techniques and tips for learning how to:

  • Avoid getting blinded by your own data
  • Make better, more informed decisions
  • Slow down to go fast
  • Question the right answer and explore the second best answer
  • Use your brain to win every day

You’ll practice playing with your brain and walk away with practices you can immediately put to use to be even more successful!
