In Your Brain on Conflict series, we kick off with Scott Rogers, Founder and Director of the Institute for Mindfulness Studies. What happens in our brain when we are engaged in an emotionally-charged conflict? Neuroscience or brain science has emerged with answers that help us begin to understand the physiological, emotional, and cognitive impact on us in these types of situations. One method for dealing with these intense situations is called mindfulness. We will explore what mindfulness is and share tips for how to practically apply techniques to manage conflict and the emotions you experience.
Our brains are changing all the time. We can be in control of those changes or we can have accidental brains, ruled by habit. Stephanie will show you how you can break bad habits, set and reach goals, and maximize your ability to handle conflict through the process of self-directed neuroplasticity. By using some basic techniques, you can take charge of how your brain changes. You can rewire your brain on purpose.
We all have to manage conflicts in our brain on a daily basis, not only with others but with ourselves: making the right decisions, choosing between options, between objectives, allocating our time and resources, etc. Our session will cover what neuroscience has to tell us about how the brain manages all of those conflicts and how can we use those findings to improve our well-being and effectiveness from a social, emotional and cognitive standpoint.
Every conflict contains a seed that in the right conditions can germinate into a new understanding, deeper awareness, and creative possibilities. The inner workings of the brain can advance or hinder this process. This program will explore implications of current neuroscience research for communication, social interactions, conflict management, and influence. This program will help you more effectively:
– Communicate and think clearly under pressure.
– Regulate emotions.
– Overcome cognitive biases and improve decision-making.
– Unleash the creative potential in conflicts and facilitate insights and breakthroughs.
