Event Description

Strengthening Nonprofit Teams and Maximizing Work From Home Using Brain-Science Basics

Anna Young, Principal, Anna Young Leadership Coaching

This one-hour webinar will create an understanding of some of the basics of brain science and how we can use this to create support for our nonprofit teams. We will use a simple framework that can be shared and applied immediately to create greater understanding of what enables our brains to engage optimally and what sends us into a limbic state/mode. In the second part of the webinar we will look at techniques to help support our brains while we are in the work-from-home mode. Participants will leave the session with an easy-to-use model to engage with their own nonprofit teams and concrete suggestions for how to improve home working environments. 

Please send questions and comments ahead of the session to

Please note that a recording of this webinar will be sent to registrants after the event.
