Know Your Brain, Know Your Business
A fun and inspiring setting to develop effective communication and professional growth.
Empower your team with the training sessions they need to maximize work performance through an in-depth understanding of the brain and how people think.
Unlike other corporate trainings which use tests to show employees how they’re different, this session uses science to highlight how we are alike, and how having the right mindset can lead to success.
Working with trusted scientists and educators from The Franklin Institute, your employees can maximize professional growth and feel confident that the content of our workshops are credible and reliable.
“In addition to being extremely interesting, engaging and fun, [Know Your Brain, Know Your Business] allowed us to take away many useful lessons and strategies that I’m certain will enable us to improve our overall work performance in multiple ways.” – PECO CFO, Phillip Barnett
