“Kristen’s presentation on how to approach staff to get the best out of them was powerful. She struck just the right balance of science, humour and pragmatic suggestions. Understanding how to approach difficult conversations can be a lifetime’s work, so having the frame of neuroscience in which to practice this provides for a very practical and useful approach.”
Dr Tahnya Donaghy - Executive Director, Strategic Policy
“Ms Hanson gave us a fascinating insight into this emerging science and gave particular focus on ensuring employees work to their fullest potential by ensuring they are in a “reward state”. Ms Hanson was passionate and engaging and the general consensus of the audience was that they would have liked more time to explore the concepts she presented to us.”
Grant Stevens APM - Deputy Commisioner
“The neuroleadership skills I learned by attending the TREAD workshop have become an essential part of my management style at the Garvan Institute. I gained significant insight into the effect that stress can have on individual performance and productivity, and as a result I feel I am a better leader and manager, and I am more in tune with my team and internal clients. Other significant personal insights I gained include how emotions are contagious and importance of encouraging the “reward” state in the team. These have all been fabulous skills to learn while operating in a competitive environment which emphasizes excellence in performance as standard.”
Christina Hardy - Director, Business Development and Legal Affairs
