    The past decade has seen remarkable advances in our understanding of how the brain works. Many of the research findings have very significant implications for our work as HR professionals. In this session we explore practical ways in which we can leverage brain science to be more influential, negotiate effectively, lead organizational transformation, coach others, and develop leaders.
