Seth Godin sees change almost always made during the down part of a cycle and so do I. Seth calls change the opportunity of a lifetime ... with all the excitement and future opportunities that entails. Have you experienced it?
When HR Magazine and SHRM first contacted the MITA International Brain Based Center … I was thrilled for two reasons.
First … what hope we all have when peak performance brainpower shapes finer organizations ... with higher integrity.
The largest human relations organization in the world supported brains at work by showing vital research … and also by reporting neuroscience discoveries that influence and change behavior at work.
Second … the story breaks mental ground and opens the door to discuss 5 mind-bending topics that will jumpstart any workplace.
1. Racism turnaround. Bring more brainpower into work and watch people's focus on color fade in favor of their multiple intelligences for progress together.
2. Choice upgrades. The workplaces across this nation are all poorer because of New York Governor, Eliot Spitzer’s choices. But did you know every choice you make today will rewire your brain’s basal ganglia for more of the same tomorrow?
3. Invention increases. Consider how an awareness of neurological discoveries for risk-taking could land your own career and organization at the competitive edges for new wins.
4. Relevant learning. Rather than ineffective universities that cause 40% learner drop out … imagine using science’s new revelations. Take for example how adults can turn knowledge into practical use in the workplace.
5. Drug advantages. With more brain at work … people learn natural chemicals that lead to more intelligence in less time for higher performances. People empowerment may mean less money to the drug industry … but it will also end raging debates about how to hold onto intellectual edges.
It’s time to replace old arguments about race … choice … invention … learning … and drugs … with new wonders about the human brain at work. Ready to carry the concepts past HR Cover stories into your organization. If so … the brain can also guide you through the risks that come with change.
