About this Learning Opportunity

Our brains are designed to function best with a delicate balance of monotony and change. This, of course, is not what work and life throws at us. So, how can we set ourselves and our teams up to thrive in periods of change?

In this talk, Dr. Lisa Bélanger explores the behaviours we can implement to optimize our ability to think clearly, be productive, resilient, stay driven, and avoid being overwhelmed. Drawing on psychology, behavioural science, and neuroscience, she'll walk you through how to set up your environment, community, and teams to perform well in high-stress situations and when under long-term stress; and how to use simple tools to increase mental strength and performance in periods of change.
