More ways than ever to build an intelligent enterprise
Thanks for checking out our BrainBites site. If you’re wondering what all this means, well it’s pretty simple really.
We’ve been looking at this neuroscience ‘stuff’ for over 10 years now! In fact, we’ve been running accredited courses for the past five years (but you can check out that info on our other pages). What we’ve discovered is that many people are interested in learning about the human brain, but just don’t have that much time to take it all in (after all there is a lot of amazing stuff to learn about the brain).
Fun Fact – smaller learning bites are better for retaining information.
So, we got busy and started to develop small BrainBites that provide you with one key piece of knowledge, that is really important to understand about how the human brain interacts in the workplace; how you can use that knowledge to become the superhero of your workplace and provide you with real tools and strategies you can immediately use to start to change how you and others respond to situations.
We know you’re going to love them! So go ahead and have a look at our Introductory BrainBite – it’s OK, it’s FREE!

FACILITATING CHANGE THAT STICKS
We all love free stuff, right? And we love sharing what we know, So feel free to download this infographic (produced in collaboration with Change Activation) on why brains hate change and what you can do to support change processes.
Brains hate change. Change takes effort, focus, and energy, and the brain like to conserve energy. The brain likes to work in familiar ways and follow predictable patterns. When the default state of the brain is complacency, it can be a challenge to generate the sense of urgency required for successful change plans. Even the word ‘change’ can make some break out in a cold sweat, as certainty and control over familiar contexts is threatened.
