‘Your Mind at Work: How Understanding Our Brains Can Improve Decision Making and Collaboration in the Workplace’
Friday, March 3, 9–10:30 a.m.
UAA/APU Consortium Library, Room 302A
Dr. Emma Coddington is a behavioral neuroendocrinologist who investigates the neural mechanisms that drive stress behavior and decision making in amphibians and people. In this session, Dr. Coddington will explore how we are biologically primed to make decisions and how we can learn to nuance this process toward better collaborations, policies and communities. She will discuss decision making, impostor phenomenon and mindset, and consider how these thought processes and habits play out in our lives at work. She will also offer practical strategies for developing a new understanding of our personal and professional psyches and cultural scripts, as well as avenues for institutional change.
