Dr. Gleb Tsipursky
CEO of Disaster Avoidance Experts, LLC
Summary of Presentation:
In this engaging, interactive, and entertaining presentation, you as an HR professional will dramatically improve your adaptation and planning for the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic using cutting-edge neuroscience and behavioral economics-based strategies. Unfortunately, too many are operating in emergency mode in reacting to the short-term disruptions caused by the pandemic. Yet realistic assessments by the best epidemiology experts suggest the pandemic will be around for the next 3 to 5 years, until an effective vaccine is created and mass produced. Research shows that our gut reaction is to adapt to and plan for best-case scenarios and to focus on short-term threats, instead of taking a realistic and long-term perspective on slow-moving disasters such as the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. Instead, you need to shift your work to adapt to the major disruption of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. This presentation will offer you neuroscience and behavioral economics-based strategies to navigate successfully the disruptions caused by the pandemic, ensuring that you not only survive but thrive.
The Learning Objectives Include:
1. Identify where your current reaction to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic might be oriented excessively toward a short-term and/or optimistic outlook
2. Learn about the neuroscience-based evidence for how we tend to make poor choices in the face of slow-moving major disruptions like the pandemic
3. Discover techniques to evaluate and shift your work to adapt to and plan effectively for the pandemic
4. Tailor the best practices on responding effectively to the pandemic to your own situation and context
5. Develop a long-term strategic plan to navigate successfully the disruptions caused by the pandemic
