There’s no one else with these kinds of credentials who can make complex neuroscience so engaging, entertaining, easy to understand and to apply.
Fortune 500 organizations using Net Promoter Scores consistently rank Dr. Pillay at 87, 90 and 97 … out of a -100 to 100 possible score!
“Dr. Pillay’s presentation was quite impactful and filled with rich nuggets of insights. There was so much in there that was important for our company to hear, and was presented in a way that powerfully balanced scientific knowledge and accessibility of the solution. Dr. Pillay was easy to work with, responsive to our input, and made the whole process, including the presentation itself, quite enjoyable.”
“Just Do It,” simply won’t work post pandemic with stress levels at epidemic proportions. Today, delivering an organizational goal requires new methods with proven psychological heft and departure from the status quo. Stress and mental roadblocks undermine initiatives because they’re typically fiercer and more persistent than tangible ones. Leaders and teams can have vastly different beliefs about what’s possible to achieve.
How then, do leaders inspire teams to…
Exceed sales quotas?
Create a “never been done before,” product
Implement a strategic initiative … in spite of elevated stress, varying beliefs and mental roadblocks?
Imagine if … there was a way to boost a sense of what’s possible, and a way to transform mental roadblocks to achieve any goal … no matter what. The shift in focus, time and energy goes from obstacles to the objective. Imagine if… there was a neuroscience toolkit that leaders and teams could apply to increase a goal’s viability and success?
There is. It’s called Possibility Thinking, because research validates, for every initiative, mindset matters. Possibility thinking primes the mindset ahead of a goal using easy to learn and apply brain-based techniques. The Science of Possibility session, guides leaders to discover their sense of what’s possible, and what’s blocking it. There are several, but a significant factor that obstructs possibility thinking is prolonged stress, there’s no optimum performance in this state and it has serious physical health consequences.
This session gives leaders the practical tools to transform stress and underlying mental blockages. The return exceeds the investment with a measurable improvement in possibility thinking that nets tangible results. Instead of just envisioning an immediate goal or the distant future …. leaders now have the neuroscience understanding, skills and the tools … to build it.
“Grin and bear it,” isn’t an effective or sustainable resilience building strategy. Yet leaders face new challenges, sometimes with outmoded tools.
This Building Resilience program turns the topic upside down.
It changes the conversation.
To transform daunting challenges and build resilience that sticks, understanding the foundational complexities of the brain is a must. Otherwise it’s a contest between evolutionary factors that thwart every attempt at building resilience.
“Bad is stronger than good,” is one such factor. This famous piece of research, tells us, that our evolutionary hardwiring is to focus more attention on bad things which are easily retrievable in our memory.
But when we’re wired to focus on bad things, is building resilience even possible? Yes, it is.
You don’t need to be held hostage to evolution. The truth is, the brain can change, when you know how. In Building Resilience, this program introduces daring new approaches outside of the ordinary paradigms. It focuses on the neuroscience of resilience.
With supporting research and brain-based techniques, each participant learns the steps necessary to change the brain. It outlines the neurological conditions that promote clear thinking, a sense of calm amidst the storm, mindset necessary in astute decision making and a critical component of resilience. Leaders gain new perspectives on the brain and specific ways to leverage its power to apply to challenges within the organization for visible outcomes.
This neuroscience approach to resilience puts the practical tools into the hands of each leader. It gives them concrete new methods to face new challenges in the post pandemic era, during times of uncertainty and transition. No leader or team member should ever have to, “Grin and bear it,” … when they can possess the resilience to thrive.
Dr Pillay offered us a new, pragmatic and powerful perspective to drive innovative thinking by removing old paradigms. Particularly, shifting our mindset from probabilities to possibilities proved to be a strong unlock to new ideas. Great communicator with solid research on this topic, Dr. Pillay is certainly a great speaker for any audience willing to retrain their brain for innovation.
Dr. Pillay delivered brilliant information to our senior leaders. His presentations facilitated a lot of ‘ah ha’ moments, allowing people to understand why they react in certain ways to certain situations.
Every organization is experiencing unprecedented change. People are overwhelmed on many fronts and searching for a way forward. Srini teaches the brain science to help individuals and teams become more self-sufficient and able to realize their vision for the future by solving the problems that truly matter and dealing with the blockages to manifesting that vision.
