How to I communicate change to the business? How do I maintain productivity and wellbeing during change? How do I deal with resistance to business change?

It is based on the PEPE model which outlines the four fundamental principles that drive resistance to change in individuals, teams and the wider organization. This book provides specific coverage of how neuroscience can inform change initiatives in remote, hybrid and in-person working environments to ensure successful business transformation in any working model. There is also discussion of how change can impact employee mental health and wellbeing and explains how using insights from neuroscience can help to safeguard this. There is also discussion of how to handle competing priorities from different groups of employees during times of business change.

Every chapter of Neuroscience for Change at Work is supported by practical examples, tips, tools and case studies as well as robust, evidence-based insights from neuroscience. Co-authored by a neuroscientist with extensive experience in applying neuroscience to business transformation projects, this book is a practical guide for all change managers and anyone responsible for employee engagement, wellbeing and productivity during times of change.
