The age of disruption calls for companies to plan for positions that don’t exist now and recruit and develop talent that will be agile and competent enough to fill those positions. This calls for sourcing and developing agile people who can fill those positions because they have the ability to learn, unlearn, relearn and multi-skill fast and easy in new, first time situations.

Before people can be agile at learning, thinking, emotions, leadership and how they perform in teams, they need to optimize the drivers that impact the ease and speed with which they learn, think and process information and integrate the neurophysiological elements which determine their neurological design and impact their mental flexibility.

Being able to optimize these brain-based elements will enable people to be neuro agile, which is the starting point for developing agile people. During this session Dr. André Vermeulen will explore how the construct of neuro-agility helps professionals to develop talent, improve their performance and reduce their risk for human error.

1. Learn a framework to become neuro agile
2. Identify 7 neurophysiological 7 components of people's neurological design
3. Apply 5 brain agility exercises

People's neurological design consists of various neurophysiological components that influence how uniquely they think, learn, process information, and experience the world. It is, therefore, essential for all coaches and people development professionals to be aware of how their neurological design and the neurological design of the people they coach and develop, will greatly influence the outcome and effectiveness of coaching sessions and learning interventions.

During this session, the presenter will follow a neuroscience approach to illustrate what neurological design is, how it can influence coaching, and how to optimize people's mental flexibility.

1. Learn how people's neurodesign can influence a coaching session.

2. Learn 5 brain agility skills to improve mental flexibility.

3. Identify the 7 neurophysiological components of people's neurological design.
