Participants will explore some of the latest knowledge about how our brain works, leading to certain behaviors.  Those behaviors at work result, in part, on levels of success-where what you do works for staff or does not.  There are several activities during class to demonstrate these points.  Much of the class will then focus on participants who, through natural brain wiring, favor one hemisphere over the other.  They will take a valid instrument that will show not only hemispheric preference, but the degree of that preference.  Participants will be divided into groups with similar “scores” and asked to do tasks that will demonstrate the differing approaches one takes, in part based on brain hemisphere preference.
