Program Days (for ACE Credit) 2
The modern business environment is constantly evolving. As a result of this rapid change, there’s an increase in the amount of information that needs to be processed and problems that need to be solved. Now, more than ever, there is a demand for resilient and agile leaders who can effectively adapt to change and drive innovation.
Although business leaders do not have control over the external factors impacting their businesses, they can prepare themselves and their organizations to better respond to, and navigate through, change. The Neuroscience for Business online short course takes a scientific approach to leadership. Drawing on the importance of neuroscience principles like neuroplasticity, it looks at promoting organizational and personal resilience, leadership development, and business performance.

With key insights from industry experts, you’ll gain a better understanding of the areas for improvement in your business, and create a strategy that maps out your vision for your organization, as well as the steps required to achieve it.
