The Organizational Mind. Using the New Brain Science to Build Resilience, Innovation and Engagement in the Workplace
On October 27, 2015 over 40 Human Resource thought leaders gathered at Wells Fargo in Minneapolis to hear from Doctors Henry Emmons and David Alter about how individual brain health drives organizational success, and how to use the keys to a youthful brain to build a more resilient, creative and vibrant workplace. The authors shared insight from their new book Staying Sharp: 9 Keys for a Youthful Brain through Modern Science and Ageless Wisdom.
Viewing the workplace through an organizational lens, David Alter talked about the importance of continually measuring employee engagement as opposed to an annual survey, because a once a year snapshot doesn’t uncover the nuances behind individual’s responses. He shared cutting edge research on how to get and keep your employees fully engaged.
Henry Emmons discussed the importance of staying sharp by providing great examples of the connection of body, mind and heart, and exploring key factors to individual resilience.”
Doctors Henry Emmons and David Alter will continue to share insight on this leading-edge topic at a special SHIFT Forum in December. This event will be held on December 7th at the Twin Cities Public Television Studio, where they will share more details on using the new brain science to build resilience, wellness and well being.

They will also explain how an organization is like the human brain, how recent discoveries in neuroscience can help protect and enliven this most precious resource, and how can you apply this knowledge with wisdom to create an innovative organizational mind.
