Uncertainty is not new for organizations. It’s been a theme for more than a decade. Yet, the pandemic of 2020 represents a predatory threat that physiologically looms over the brain’s creative potential in new and unprecedented ways. Extensive brain research has indicated that predatory fear adds a layer of complexity to existential anxiety, and that rising death tolls turn the brain’s cognitive capacity upside down, making us more biased, insular, and trapped in a state of consciousness that holds us back from the dance with life. Although neurons often function optimally at the edge of chaos, understanding how to thrive on this edge without a perverse thrill can pose many challenges. In this webinar, Dr. Srini Pillay, a Harvard-trained psychiatrist, brain scientist, leadership development expert and invited member of a US think tank on disasters, trauma and global mental health will explain how the brain is in fact wired to navigate this complexity, and how we can institute specific cognitive practices to enable ourselves to engage a deeper level of consciousness in the pandemic era.
Dr. Srini Pillay is the Founder of NeuroBusiness Group, Author of Life Unlocked; Your Brain and Business and Tinker Dabble Doodle Try and Mobius Senior Expert.
