The Neuroscience of Change

Britt Andreatta, Inc. 


The pace of change today is pushing the limits of even the most nimble organizations. Change occurs in myriad ways, from shifting technology to reorganizing functions to seeking new customers and operating globally. And no matter the size, every change requires new learning. Talent professionals serve as change facilitators, not only helping to implement change but also developing talent to be ready for future change. Recent discoveries in neuroscience illuminate how we learn and respond to change, and ways we can maximize both flexibility and resilience. In this session, the speaker will share the latest discoveries about the brain, and how to harness human biology to reduce resistance to change and change fatigue. She will provide key principles for learning design that maximizes the brain's capacity to learn and embrace change. Leave this session with new strategies for intentionally building the professional capacity of people across all functions of your organization.


Application on the Job:

  • Learn how all change activates the survival centers in the brain.

  • Discover key learning design principles that lead to long-term behavior change.

  • Identify ways to intentionally increase the resilience of your people and organization.

Unleashing "Learnatics”: How Organizations That Learn Stay Ahead

Sebastian Bailey

Mind Gym


Jack Welch once said, "An organization's ability to learn, and translate that learning into action rapidly, is the ultimate competitive advantage." He was wrong: Learning is more than an advantage, it's a competitive imperative. But a naive view of learning means it's never thought of beyond the school classroom or a training conference room. Learning itself is a capability that can be developed. This is a call to unleash the learnacy. Learnatics don't just gobble up new information; they do something useful with it. They take what they know, quickly apply it to new situations, and then go and learn some more. An organization full of learnatics will innovate faster, be more efficient, and deliver more value. And if you have enough learnatics, their learnacy will go viral.


Application on the Job:

  • Discover the characteristics of a learnatic. 

  • Understand what stops learnacy from spreading.

  • Learn how to develop learnacy in others.

  • Get proven ways to make learnacy go viral across an organization.

101 Ways to Expand Learning Beyond Your Classroom

Elaine Biech

Ebb Associates


Today's talent development professional has multiple options for delivering learning to employees. The 70-20-10 model (70 percent hands-on experience, 20 percent developmental interactions, 10 percent formal learning) continues to serve as a valuable guideline for using a wide variety of developmental options. Many of us are experts in the 10 percent domain for delivering training or programs, but what's our role beyond instructor-led training? How do we deliver personalized developmental experiences? Can we support social learning? How can we ensure employees are immersed in experiential learning? What is our role in influencing interaction between employees and supervisors? Can we stimulate informal learning? We have to provide shorter, more accessible, and more relevant global learning experiences. And we also need to engage learners, ensuring that they have the competence, confidence, and commitment to succeed. You will leave this session with ready-to-use ideas, activities, templates, and learning options that address the other 90 percent of the learning model. You will also have the opportunity to actively contribute to and experience new technology that you can use in your organization.


Application on the Job: 

  • Examine your expanding role in developing talent. 

  • Discover new ways to engage your learners and deliver content creatively and memorably.

  • Use resources and activities that go beyond instructor-led training and the virtual or traditional classroom.
