The Neuroscience of Positive Change

BrainSkills@Work™

 

  • The brain's embedded survival circuitry challenges the brain's ability to be inclusive 

  • The brain has very strong, built-in preferences for what is familiar and already known and prefers people who look like us 

  • Social pain of exclusion registers in the brain as strongly as physical pain

 

However, the neocortex can go off-line very easily, because: 
  • Recognize and manage unconscious or implict bias

  • Understand & appreciate others' experiences and points of view

  • Make positive connections and build trust with others

  • Balance logic and emotion for optimal decision making

NEUROSCIENCE, DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

Developing brain skills provides a new strategy for advancing inclusion skills by: 
  • Engaging the brain's ability to move beyond perceived threats to build trust across differences 

  • Generating compassion and empathy towards others who are not like ourselves

  • Keeping the positive brain engaged creating open minded perceptions and the motivation to build connections

  • Increasing the motivation to discover shared interests and collaborate across differences

Your brain can trump your good intentions to be inclusive without you even knowing it?
