How much do you know about the brain?

Can you separate brain facts from brain fiction or neuromyths?

Why is it important that you know the difference?

Come and find out in this interactive session – you may be surprised.

Neuroscience has increasingly become a sexy word in business and education. Unfortunately oversimplification of findings from research on the brain has led to the development of neuromyths.

Neuromyths can lead us to counterproductive strategies as coaches, leaders and educators. There is often a grain of truth to some of these myths and having an understanding as to how they developed can help us to debunk the most common ones.

During this interactive session we explore:

  • How much do you really know about the brain?
  • Can you separate brain facts from brain fiction?
  • Why have these myths evolved?
  • Why should we care?
  • Why is it important for us to know this?
