Mount Eliza Business School found that over 70% of change initiatives fail because of people resistance - not because they weren’t good business ideas, driven by sound analysis, systems and facts. The core of the challenge is changing behaviour - and our brains are extremely effective in tenaciously maintaining the status quo.

The Neuroscience of Change module offers business professionals, leaders and managers the theoretical concepts to understand how people respond and react to change. It incorporates the latest research from the disciplines of emotional intelligence, neuroscience and positive psychology to provide a framework for creating conditions for implementing successful change.

Participants will:

  • Be introduced to simple tools, tips and actionable and practical strategies to incorporate into all your change initiatives
  • Gain an appreciation for how individuals respond to change and the neuroscience of change
  • Gain understanding of the SCARF model as a framework for evaluating and mitigating emotional responses to change
  • Learn practical tools and strategies that create agile conditions for managing and implementing successful change initiatives
  • Assess a current change impacting their team and practice using tools
  • Create action plans to move team members past barrier to change to the desired future state
