Using Neuroscience to drive Organizational Change

Using nearly 30 years of executive leadership, academic training, and his vast experience in organizational development, Dr. Goodly’s consulting practice utilizes neuroscience insights on how the brain works and advanced training in emotional intelligence to enhance the effectiveness of leaders and teams through better problem solving, decision-making and collaboration. His current and past engagements include assignments with clients in all sectors of the workplace – educational, public, private and non-profit organizations.

Dr. Goodly’s highly successful corporate career includes prominent assignments with Fortune 100 companies.  After graduating from West Point and serving as an officer in the U.S. Army, he worked in various HR roles for Mobil Corporation and Pepsi-Cola Company across the country.  Most recently, in his role as senior vice president of human resources for Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. (TBS, Inc.), he was the top HR executive and was responsible for the development of human resources strategies and initiatives and for several Turner divisions, most notably, CNN Worldwide.

Dr. Goodly will share underlying insights from the field of social neuroscience on how the brain works that can be applied in the real world.  He will highlight the two key themes emerging from this body of research.  The first key insight is that much of the motivation driving social behavior is governed by the brain’s overarching organizing principle of minimizing threat and maximizing reward.   The second key theme is that the same brain networks are used for both social needs and primary survival needs.  In other words, social needs are treated in much the same way in the brain as the need for food and water. Mr. Goodly’s presentation will also discuss David Rock’s SCARF Model, which summarizes these two themes in a framework that captures the common factors that can activate a reward or threat response in social situations.

Another exciting event. We look forward to seeing you there!
