Adaptive Human Capital’s President & CEO, Richard (“Rick”) Maher will be presenting at next week’s Garden State Employment and Training Association (GSETA) Conference to New Jersey’s largest assembly of workforce development leaders.

“I’ve been privileged to appear at GSETA many, many times and always appreciate the opportunity to work with workforce pros from my home state,” said Maher. “I think workforce professionals have a two-fer in terms of the challenge of these times. They need to help their clients cope, but they need to be able to move more nimbly themselves as they do. Folks can better help others if they understand the brain science behind uncertainty and change and how to better manage themselves through. This session will give them information that can help and I’m really looking forward to making something positive happen for folks in New Jersey!”

Maher will present “Your Brain on Change: Manage Your Mindset, Balance Your Life” which explores the neuroscience behind how our brains tend to process change and uncertainty and the traits of resilient individuals and organizations. Learners will gain new insights about how brain science explains how we process changes and how our “primitive brain” works to protect us from threats, but also hampers our ability to cope effectively with modern day stressors. Learners will gain insight into their own natural style in responding to shifts in their environment, both at work and in life. Leaders will explore the Six Traits of Agile Organizations and gain new tools and tactics to support themselves and others through change.

“We are living through a terribly disruptive time,” says Maher. “I’ll call it an Age of Disruption. People are stressed, anxious and feeling “stuck” waiting for normal to return, but, of course, it won’t. We’re not going back to normal, so we better figure out how to manage change more effectively and find better balance in our lives.”

Participants will be offered FREE ACCESS to experience our Individual Resilience AssessmentÓ following the session.

Maher will present “Your Brain on Change” on Tuesday, October 18. Interested conference attendees can get a more information on the workshop on the GSETA Conference website.
