Did you know the average person makes 35,000 decisions a day? This is only possible because the brain uses rules to streamline the process. Change breaks those rules, often resulting in friction, fear, and freezing. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Imagine how much smoother projects and team dynamics could be if you understood the rules each brain used to make those decisions (and could work with them instead of with what you think “should” work). In this session based on groundbreaking insights from her book, What Your Employees Need and Can’t Tell You, applied behavioral economist Melina Palmer shares insights from brain science to help new and tenured managers increase their influence inside ever-evolving organizations and make it so anyone they work with can be naturally better at change.

Key Takeaways:

  • How the brain really makes decisions, what behavioral economics is, and why it matters for credit unions.

  • Why we are all thinking about change wrong, and the important shift that can help anyone be a better manager, and make it so team members (whether they report to you or not) are more likely to support a change initiative.

  • Three important things most leaders get wrong when presenting ideas to their teams, and some simple reframes to avoid these common pitfalls that can derail projects before they begin.
