Check out life-changing benefits of a Mind Makeover – located at Forbes.com. My new Forbes blog will show how to open new brainpowered opportunities by working more with your brain, than against it. How so?
Want more enthusiasm where you work? You’ll see how boredom is more a habit formed in brains, and learn practical ways to reshaped choices, in spite of workplace realities.
Want a lighter, more affable work environment? You’ll discover how environment counts, and a healthy setting helps people transform problems into solutions.
Communication appear cold, inconsistent and cynical? With your mind makeover, well being will come from and be fueled by serotonin chemical hormones.
Conflicts predominate over calm? Watch how anger, fear, and frustration are triggered by cortisol chemical hormones, more than by others.
More problems than solutions appear evident? Your mind makeover shows venting as bad for the brain and creates new neuron pathways to much more of the same.
Change is short-lived or old habits pull you down? You’ll discover how dendrite brain cells use the outside world and take shape, or grow based on what you do.
Music selections at work rob your focus? See how music changes your brain wave speeds in ways that impact moods and alter productivity.
Meetings come with unreasonable demands? Learn how lectures and talks work against listeners’ brains and benefit speakers’ intelligence mostly.
Tenure used as an excuse to stop learning and or stomp on growth? Watch how Hebbian workers rewire their brains to kill incentives, limit focus or even shrink their brains.
People excluded because of backgrounds and beliefs at all leadership levels? See why diversity training commonly works mentally against benefits because of its deficit model.
Little or no motive for exercise and quiet reflection? See how brain waves can bring either sleep or peak performance, based on how you activate and operate them.
New knowledge appear irrelevant to many? Pick up strategies to hook even difficult facts onto one thing a person already knows and learning increases in less time.
Ruts appear constant – while invention appears rare? Hear how basal ganglias store facts and create ruts, working memory holds few facts and leads change.
Multiple approaches discouraged or people forced into one required approach? Learn how multiple intelligences are common to all, used by few, and can be more developed daily.
Peer pressure diminishing creativity? Innovation limited? Cynicism rampant? See how cynical mindsets literally block creativity, impact talent, and stomp out innovation.
Top down learning approaches easily dropped or forgotten? Pick up tactics to outsource memory that will help you remember, and also free your mind for focus at work.
Senior workers teach all yet rarely learn from others? Find the magic in plasticity that enables people to rewire the human brain in ways that keep it younger, smarter, and alive through interactive learning.
A spirit of discouragement supersedes consensus or team building for profitability? See how encouragement changes the chemistry of a brain through raised serotonin, while criticism tears down through spreading cortisol chemicals.
Distrust evident through lack of transparency in communications? Learn brain facts behind meta messages that destroy relationships through implications different from what is said.
Self-serving exchanges build traditional silos or departments refuse to pull together for the greater good? Learn how it often takes an integration of hard and soft skills to solve problems with the brain in mind.
Negative tone predominates so that few people tend to take risks to achieve new heights? See how stress literally shrinks the brain, and tone in communication acts as a silent killer.
Leaders know few people by name, or address others by name? With a mind makeover, you’ll be more conscious to greet people by name, for a spike in personal awareness.
Creativity and invention get stomped out rather than shared, through lack of teaching others at the same time people learn? Learn how people retain 90% more through teaching others at the same time they learn a thing. So wisdom and invention spreads and grows in this way.
Curiosity rarely cultivated by the entire workplace community? Mind makeovers enable you to create new neuron pathways each time you add a solution to any problem you encounter. The opposite is also true – as a focus on problems leads to more of the same.
Little value appears evident for both women and men at all leadership levels? See how women’s and men’s brain differ biologically and intellectually in ways that few optimize, but ways that jettison innovations forward.
What topics here, would you like to see first in the line-up of Mind Makeovers over at Forbes.com?
Oh, by the way, the site at Brain Leaders and Learners will continue with gusto – but you can see why Robyn McMaster, and I are both looking forward to contributing Mind Makeovers to Forbes.com blogs.
