    Unlock the Hidden Potential in Your People

    Why do we feel threatened in certain work situations?

    How has the ‘business as usual’ mindset limited your potential? Tap into the brain science behind connection as we pull back the curtain on the habits, behaviors and reactions that resurface as we interact with others.

    Learn how we are wired for connection and how to use brain science to develop and empower your team.

    Learning Objectives:

    In this workshop you will learn how to:

    • Prime learners to be more engaged and utilize growth mindset concepts.
    • Create environments that foster healthy 2-way engagement around performance discussions.
    • Unlock new energy in among your people to drive engagement and a sense of belonging.

    I will take the group through an activity for each of the 3 main areas of focus (training, performance discussions and increasing engagement). I would like to send out a pdf file after the event - our Burnout Protection Plan that I will be referring to. It will provide them with 20+ ideas on activities they can use with their teams.

    Jodi DeRoo

    My passion is people. I believe most people have untapped potential, and if businesses invest in unleashing that potential – then numbers will follow. I’ve had the opportunity to master a variety of roles, from lending to treasury management to operations to talent management. I’ve worked with start-up companies and tenured organizations. I’ve helped drive cultural change in a way that inspired organic growth, momentum and team member engagement. I believe learning is a lifelong journey and I welcome new challenges as an integral part of my ongoing development. About 10 years ago I started digging deep into the brain science behind human interactions and it opened up a whole new obsession for me! In my spare time you’ll find me lovin’ on my family, especially my grandchildren (the greatest dopamine dump ever!) – reading books, singing crazy songs and having sock races down the hallways.
