Description

Note: This is a repeat of the event run in November 2017 due to popular demand

Being smart and business savvy is important, but it is no longer enough in our complex and fast paced workplace environments. Leaders must also be brain savvy. The brain's tendency for the threat response to be activated – and there are about five times more neural networks that scan for threat – means that leaders who don't work with the brain in mind are less likely to be able to minimise this, or better yet, to activate reward responses.

Also, you've no doubt heard much about the VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambigious) world in which we are now operating. The good news is, it's our new operating norm. So, leaders of the next generation need to be savvy about the current paradoxes these challenges bring about.

In the brain savvy leadership space, this brings about paradoxes like maintaining control, while letting go of control. Or, stressing continuity while stressing change. Enough to give many leaders a 'brainache'! Those operating in old ways are going to suffer the age old challenge of trying to fix problems with the thinking that caused them.

In the systems savvy space, this brings about paradoxes like managing organisational performance in a rapidly changing environment, building organisational capability when the capability demands are shifting and changing, or balancing demands for high quality, responsive services with the need for a culture of failing fast in innovating and delivering new products and services. We are seeing this in aged care, disability, health, education, justice, defence, and utilities, just to name a few sectors!

The world is dynamic and changing. So are organisations. And so is the brain. We need to operate in savvy ways in both spheres to ensure that we don't suffer from stagnation or overload.

This is a 'lunch and learn' session where we will start to unpack what it means to be brain and systems savvy. We will also outline how you can learn more where you feel this might be helpful to you as a leader and/or to your organisation. We'll supply the coffee, tea and conversation content. You can bring your lunch, enthusiasm, questions and interested colleagues.

We look forward to seeing you.
