Our brains do an amazing job of balancing comfort patterns and attending to the unique and different. Think of primitive humans finding patterns in the night skies while also listening for the prowling saber toothed tiger. Our team will present some key neuroscience elements and the T&D professionals can use when beginning training sessions to help create positive learning environments. Bring your brains as we will present examples and pick your brains to put together some tips and tricks.
