Most manager and trainers don’t understand the most critical part of learning: how the brain works, and how we can use it to apply real learning and deep understanding. Because of this lack of information, when we use traditional methods of teaching, learning can feel like a chore.
It's Not Your Fault...
The conventional methodology of teaching is how most managers and trainers work. Today, with the help of neuroscience, we know how to teach and engage employess in the best way possible. Whether you're managing online or the boardroom, you can turn your learning environment around. You can easily create a learning space where individuals can't wait to come to be present, engage, grow, and share their world. If you're in the business of corporate training, you can begin to flourish when employees feel safe, valued, cared for, engaged, and find purpose and meaning in their work.
Now more than ever, we as social beings need to connect where we are most productive – solving problems, surviving and thriving. Our learning systems and our workspaces are key areas of integration of the three parts of the cranial cortex. We are hardwired neurobiological learning machines; yet if the environment that we find ourselves in is not aligned with how the social and emotional brain accepts and processes new information, we will not have the performance that we expect.
The psychologically safe framework, Brain-centric Design supports and codifies the importance of human capital — employee well-being — is a driver of business outcomes and validates the Learning Sciences.
