As a forward-thinking and responsible leader, your interest may be piqued by the promises of modern safety culture: theory that describes the daily sociotechnical complexities of your work, the potential to move beyond toxic blame culture, the hope offered by a more appreciative approach to process improvement. But when you are back at your job site or workstation, you may still witness a good worker being fired because “someone’s head had to roll,” or a disagreement escalating into a shouting match and rank being pulled to settle the outcome. Perhaps you even see yourself in those very real, very common situations. 
So what is it that makes traditional safety culture so easy and satisfying in the short term? What gives modern safety culture and an HRO-mindset a scientific likelihood to succeed in the long term and deliver more return on your investment? What actions can you count on to facilitate or destabilize worker motivation? The answers lie in our most basic, 300-million-year-old human biology. Modern research into brain activity utilizing functional MRI and classic behavioral interventions shed new light on otherwise elusive concepts. 
After this 25-minute interactive seminar, you will learn how to: 
1. Map positive and negative social stimuli to the activation of common neurotransmitters in specific regions of the brain.  
2. Predict how your leadership approach – even down to individual choices – may influence the workers and teams in your shop on a neurological level. 
3. Infuse your leadership decisions with evidence-based social and behavioral neuroscience. 
*No biology or medical knowledge required; all are encouraged to attend.
