Show #59: Neuroscience and the Four Enablers
Special Guest: Hilary Scarlett of Scarlett Associates
Still trying to persuade senior colleagues that employee engagement can make a real impact on performance and productivity? Neuroscience helps us understand what enables our brains to perform at their best and provides a scientific lens through which to see engagement. It is proving very persuasive with even the most sceptical leaders.
Sustained success depends on employees’ ability to think at their best, collaborate and innovate. Neuroscience, the study of the nervous system including the brain, is still in its infancy. However, the growth in the number of fMRI scanners over the last two decades is increasing our understanding of the brain. What is particularly interesting for organisational leaders is that we can now apply learning from neuroscience to the workplace. It provides the insights into what helps our brains to work at their best. It also demonstrates that improving employee engagement doesn’t have to be laborious – many small actions can put our brains into a positive state.
Neuroscience provides a scientific look at why the four enablers are essential for us to feel engaged at work. Join us to hear how.
