In today's turbulent economic times, change is the only certainty. Most of us recognize that change can be constructive, for without it, there is no learning. Still, the question remains: why do leaders typically face resistance, skepticism and cynicism when challenging others to change?

The emerging field of neuroscience is providing powerful insights into cognitive and behavioral processes, how the mind and body interrelate and how this interaction affects our thinking. During this interactive workshop, Sylvia Vorhauser-Smith, senior vice president of Research for PageUp People, will discuss the implications of change for leadership and how challenges can be overcome in order to optimize workplace talent.

Attendees of HR Summit Melbourne who wish to learn more about the impact of neuroscience upon change leadership are encouraged to attend this educational workshop.
