Why should we look at neuroscience? For starters, neuroscience is providing surprising insights into behaviours such as decision making and problem solving, which challenge the assumptions upon which decades of management theory and communications practices are based.
Additionally, organisational communication is facing unprecedented challenges due to the increasing geographical dispersion of workers and challenges of remote working, catalyzed by the Covid-19 pandemic. But most of all, neuroscience can help us understand that how we communicate is how we work, and that we engage in inauthentic, sanitized, and prevention-based communication strategies at our peril.
Psychologists, Occupational psychologists, those in Human Resources, organisational practitioners, cultural consultants, business leaders and anyone interested in organisational communication at levels of their career.
- Understanding the basics of communication in the brain
