85% of executives cite change as critical to business success. Yet all too often it is seen as a threat. If change isso vital, why are people afraid of it?
Quite simply, it’s our subconscious biases protecting the status quo and our tendency to emphasise the negative at the expense of the positive – negativity bias. Change creates winners and losers and the fear of loss looms larger than gain. Yet we all have the ultimate tool for change at our disposal… our brain!

Neuroplasticity – our natural ability to change
The fundamental architecture of the brain is to change and adapt. Humans can adapt to any habitat on the planet from the Poles to the Equator. Think also of the languages we may have to learn depending on where we are born.
The neurobiology behind this is our brain’s remarkable ability to re-wire itself to cope with changing circumstances. When we learn or experience something new, thousands of neurons wire together to map this new knowledge. 

Changing mindset
Whether it is restructuring or digital transformation, this session shows how we are designed to adapt. By adopting a growth mindset, change can be seen as an opportunity. By focusing on the positive and really listening to peoples’ concerns the brain readjust its response to change and perceived threat.
