This workshop is designed to support people in learning what great managers know – starting with themselves.


Based on the latest neuroscience, the aim is to increase self-awareness, build confidence, and improve people management skills to enhance performance.


You’ll receive a personalized workbook, based on a pre-assessment.  Using interactive exercises, you’ll learn to recognize your Brain Profiles and Brain Talents, and how these impact your role as a people manager.


You’ll also apply insights about your own emotional intelligence during the day, as you gain awareness and increase options to become the very best version of yourself and discover how to effectively apply these strategies and approaches back in the workplace.


The assessments provided as part of this workshop are from Six Seconds, a global nonprofit dedicated to developing individual, team, and organizational excellence around the world.



During the workshop, you will:

1. Identify a current workplace challenge and map specific actions to support successful outcomes.

2. Recognize your personal Brain Style and how this impacts your focus, decision-making, and drive in your role as a people manager.

3. Gain insight into the Brain Profiles of others, and how this can be used to improve interactions.

4. Identify your Brain Talents and how these can be leveraged to improve your effectiveness in leading, collaborating, and working with others to increase performance.
