Survive to Thrive: Rewiring our Brains in an Epidemically Stressed Society

Join us for this live web session on Thursday, July 12 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM CDT.  

Stressed? You'd be amazed what the implications are. From ethical lapses to health breakdowns, our society is epidemically stressed and it's breaking our bottom line! Survive to Thrive brings members the cutting edge neuroscience of stress and strategies to get out of our pre-programmed survival mindsets, to a place where business, bodies and brains all thrive.

By the end of this session, attendees should be able to:

  1. Define the ways stress physiology affects health and job performance.
  2. Recognize the ways the brain operates maladaptively in the modern world and generate specific stress management strategies to override these “badaptations.”
  3. Develop a personalized brain-plan to become Instinctively Cognitive and reduce fear based choices to improve productivity, happiness, and health.

Ghostbusting the Evolutionary Other: How Subconscious Bias Affects Mind, Body, & Community Well-being

Join us for this live web session on Friday, July 13, 2018 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM CDT.

Community and connection are more important for our health than we recognize, and yet our evolutionary brains are wired to fear “the other.” When we let our subconscious minds undermine our behaviors towards members of our community, we all suffer health and productivity consequences. Becoming aware of our own biases is the first step in taking action towards more inclusive, healthier environments for everyone.

By the end of this session, attendees should be able to:

  1. Identify and discuss the root of subconscious bias leading to unhealthy communities.
  2. Recognize and neutralize fears associated with “the other” by reconciling implicit bias on a personal and organizational scale.
  3. Recognize ways to feel comfortable with discomfort, in order to create a healthier selves and a more cooperative culture.
