We are excited to be hosting Dr. Lisa Belanger a Behavioural Change Expert and Researcher. Join us for a workshop: Brains At Their Best: Thoughts & Behaviours for Peak Performance.
Most corporations’ greatest asset is the productivity, creativity, and innovation of their employees. What can we do to promote brain health and performance? Our brain functions best when it alternates between intense productivity and rest. Dr. Bélanger empowers the audience to take control of the behaviours and daily practices to be in the best condition to think clearly, make better decisions, to be more productive, resilient and to have more energy.
Drawing from psychology, behavioural science, and neuroscience, Dr. Bélanger explains the most effective ways to manage short term and long term stress. In this workshop, we examine practical exercises with a low investment of time and huge gains in mental strength.
This workshop establishes a science-based, proactive plan to take these seemingly small habits and establish them into daily routines. The audience walks away with a personalized habit development plan that can work for even the busiest schedules.
