FIVE Denials Of The Human Brain

Generations of human experience have taught us that there are five universally proven principles to success, happiness, and leadership effectiveness. However, most of us not only forget, but also flagrantly violate them in our daily interactions with people. We are quick to criticise others when they fail to follow the principles. Yet, when we ourselves are faced with situations that need their application, the brain conveniently goes into denial, and most of us default to the exact opposite negative behaviours.

Five Denials of the Human Brain is a highly interactive one-day workshop focussed on helping participants uncover and apply the principles to achieving success, happiness and overall leadership efficiency.

A key feature of the workshop includes guiding participants to recognise the brain’s default mode and how to consciously transition from negative ‘default’ tendencies both when leading self and managing others.
