About the course

Our brain is our most important tool for achieving success and happiness, but most professionals, even at the very top of organizations, know little about the brain or about how brain science can be utilized for professional success. This session will give you a better, solidly science-based and practical insight in the “user manual” of the human brain. Do you want to achieve the best possible synergy between your amazing brain and your beloved information and communication technology, all while decreasing stress and promoting intellectual productivity, creativity and safety? If so, then this session is for you! Special attention will be paid to the costs of always being connected, multitasking and stress.
