Minding the Mind: Neuroplasticity, Productivity & Flow event banner

Our brains are magnificent structures – a complex collection of neural networks that house our thoughts, guide our interactions, and allow us to engage and thrive in our work. However, our capacity for quality thinking in our day-to-day lives is – in reality – quite limited…and we often misallocate our attention. In an increasingly complex and uncertain world, where there are more demands on our attention than ever, we actually need to re-wire our brains and our habits in order to rise to the challenge.

Through a deeper understanding of how our brains operate, this session will help you identify ways in which you can harness neuroplasticity (the purposeful changing of the mind) to enhance your own productive output as well as optimize your engagement levels.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Recognize the value of neuroplasticity as it pertains to key brain structures and outputs
  2. Unlock strategies for enhanced productivity by being more ‘attentionally strategic’
  3. Identify ways for maximizing engagement and maintaining flow
