Join us for a lunch-hour Zoom on Wednesday, October 4th to discuss the Neuroscience of person-to-person collaboration with Dr. Richard Maybury, President & Founder of the Knowles Johnson Institute of Graduate Studies.
Many organizations are requiring their associates to spend time in the office, working together. Why? These organizations have tracked diminishing “returns” from remote teams, particularly in the areas of innovation and complex problem-solving. There has been scientific study as to the reason why. In this presentation, Dr. Richard Maybury will discuss the neuroscience behind in-person collaboration; how humans are “wired” for greater neural activity when working together in person. Using some actual case studies, Dr. Maybury will draw this research into its application in organizational design and improving productivity in a post-COVID work environment. Though organizations from many sectors can benefit from these learnings, the presentation will focus on the context of innovation in technology-based organizations, and will be followed by Q&A with Dr. Maybury.
