As educators and leaders, we should be concerned about the following trends:
Why do the best leaders and educators lead and educate with the brain in mind? Because they know when it comes to influencing, educating, engaging and motivating others, what’s happening in the brain makes all the difference. Neuroscience is unlocking secrets to what really matters when leading and educating others, but more importantly WHY it matters. The knowledge in this Masterclass will help you to understand the devastating consequences to the above trends and what you can do to change this.
Anyone with a brain!
It’s for innovators and creators who need to find new ways of finding solutions and understanding human experience in this inter-connected world.
If your workday involves leading anyone with a brain.... then this Masterclass is for you.

We can’t escape the digital revolution but we can find ways to mitigate the impact on our empathy and our attention. This session will focus on how we can take action to avert the looming crisis of empathy and develop a thoughtful and intentional relationship with digital technology. We will explore how our attention span has diminished and the significant consequences of splitting attention and distraction on learning and productivity.
Learning outcomes: Participants will learn about the impact of digital technology on capacity for empathy, cognition and attention and develop intention plans to take back to the work environment to mitigate the impact of the digital revolution.

Mindset matters – The most recent research around mindset shows it can be changed. This session will explore mindset in the context of stress and learning. The way we deal with stress is significantly influenced by our mindset. Our performance is also significantly influenced by our learning mindset.

To be successful in life we need to demonstrate social and emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence has been identified as one of the top 10 future of work skills by the World Economic forum. There is a third intelligence which hasn’t yet found its way onto the top 10 list yet - but it will. In this session, we explore the third intelligence which is key to being a great leader and becoming the boss of our attention.
Learning outcomes: Attendees will learn how these three intelligences are interdependent and how to find balance and align them to support optimal performance, to manage self and to engage well with others.
