In this episode, Dr. Sara Whedon joins us to discuss the importance of Brain Health at work.
Below are a few relevant pointers:
Brain Health is the main driver of employees’ performance at work. However, organizations rarely know how to help their people reach an optimal level of functioning without going over budget.
Understanding Brain Health is crucial for organizations to get a footing in areas such as high churn rates, conveyor belt mentality, and lack of productivity.
Dr. Sara helps companies by giving them tips and tools to enhance what they have and allow them to grow exponentially.
Sometimes we refer to employees as toxic, demotivated, or lazy. However, this is usually due to their brain not reaching an optimal state, thus not firing properly.
Well-being apps and training programs are great, but they are not necessarily a foundational layer for brain health. Very few people will take action and engage in said programs unless they first feel better.
Dr. Sara follows a three-phase model (Aware, Adapt, and Accelerate) which she describes during our conversation.
Her approach varies depending on the company she works with, as not every problem or situation needs the same solution.
