We’re Only Human – Episode 94

What is neuroscience and why should we be thinking about it as HR and business leaders? Neuroscience is the study of how the brain works, how we make decisions, and what drives our behaviors. 

If we can understand some of the underlying evidence and contributing factors, we can change behaviors of the people we work with. It sounds easier than it is, but using neuroscience principles to guide these changes can lead to powerful outcomes. In today’s discussion, Travis Hahler from Google talks with Ben about some of the elements of brain science that fit into change management and behavior modification. 

This interview was recorded during the first ever virtual reality conference for HR leaders, the Global HR Summit, in September 2020.
