The Urgent Need for Adaptability
Unprecedented levels of unhappiness, addiction, violence, chronic disease, and even falling life expectancy. It’s not your imagination—modern life is truly hazardous to our health. Many causes of these “first-world problems” have been identified, from smog to social media. But there is a simple explanation underlying it all, and it comes down to how our brains evolved—the biology of survival—clashing with the rapidly increasing complexity of the world around us in surprising ways. While it is individuals who are suffering, organizations are bearing the brunt of the economic impact in the form of employee factors like poor engagement, high turnover, and rising healthcare costs. And, longer term, we must all bear the costs to our communities. LEO addresses this problem at the root—through conceptual and educational innovations, it helps participants quickly acquire emotional and intellectual vulnerability and tools for resilience and adaptability. The result is substantially improved mental health and a growth mindset, leading to greater effectiveness at work and many other aspects of life.
About this FREE Event

The event is intended to provide you with some exciting brain 'hacks' for helping you manage and tolerate periods of rapid change. It also gives attendees a taste of the insights, recommendations and tools that everyone can learn from attending Dr. Nijhawan's full 3 part online symposium, "Brain Science of Adaptability – 5 Steps for Success in a Stressful World" (June 8, 22 and July 14) for just $595, including 3 additional registrations for family, colleagues and friends.
Even if you decide to just sit in on this free webinar, we believe that you will be rewarded with some very helpful recommendations for finding happiness and adaptability in trying times.
- Why become a "brain scientist"
- Psychological crisis now
- Survival biology
- Brain science to the rescue
- Practical tools
LEO is an interactive program that explores how the human brain works and why our brain is not prepared for the challenges of today’s world. Our lower brain, designed for our survival, dominants our day to day life. Using neuroplasticity – the ability for the brain to physically rewire itself – LEO teaches how to use different parts of the brain. Attendees will learn to use the higher brain instead of the lower brain to achieve lower stress, better memory, more creativity and most importantly, resilience!
LEO teaches tools and strategies to empower executives, employees, sales staff, customers, and, frankly, ANYONE with practical tools to understand their brains and quickly improve resilience, adaptability, and fearlessness in a rapidly changing, stressful world. Participants of the program report increased resiliency, improved quality of life, reduced anxiety, leadership in problem solving, clarity of thinking and optimism for the future
