The brain never stops changing and therefore we always have the potential ability to learn and transform ourselves. While as adults we feel that it is more difficult for an adult to change, this is largely an illusion, and that in the right circumstances an adult has an extraordinary capacity for learning.
In this conference we will understand why in general we perceive that once adults we have atrophied the capacity to learn and transform ourselves and how to revert this from an individual and corporate perspective. We will discover:
- That motivation holds the key to learning and that this largely explains what adults perceive as lack of plasticity.
- What contexts promote the transformation, both of a person and within a group.
- Why some things (like certain habits) have much greater resistance to change than others, and how to discover – to avoid frustrations – the space of what we can transform and what we cannot.
- The economy and effectiveness of change: in what circumstances it is optimal to promote innovation and change and in which it may actually be more prudent to moderate or temper innovation.
