Arthi's KeyNote

The neuroscience of managing change effectively


As senior leaders, we are constantly challenged to keep pace and be ahead even, or change, through the lens of agility and anticipation. In a post-pandemic environment, where a new normal has emerged, leaders need to feel equipped to tackle these multiple facets of change while being risk aware, and risk-taking opportunistically. Neuro-agility is a key foundational component to enable leaders to thrive. By unlocking authentic intelligence - the brain - and promoting its development, care, and growth through conscious effort, we change the fundamental structure of how we react, respond and manage change.


The talk focuses on the awareness of how one’s brain is wired to process information, learn, and create habits, while simultaneously using that awareness to dismantle self-limiting beliefs, doubts, anxieties, narrow perspectives, and biases that can hold leaders back from managing themselves and others effectively. Increasing your neuro-agility allows you to thrive in a dynamic environment, and your ecosystem too.
