Building Strategic Awareness and Decision-making Competence for an Epoch of Disruptive Change – Training our Minds based on New Findings in Neuroscience
From Yew Ming YAP
Today’s fundamental questions of wealth and poverty and the ongoing tectonic changes in the world require a radically new, integrative mindset and heightened strategic awareness. We cannot tackle the challenges we face individually and as humankind unless we drastically improve our decision-making and leadership capabilities.
Strategic Awareness Training – MBSAT is designed to strengthen and
systematically cultivate these abilities. It is based on the latest findings in
neuroscience and moulded into a format that allows active people to include the
training practices in their daily lives.
The lecture will provide an
introduction to the MBSAT training methodology and its neuroscientific
foundations and let participants experience a fresh approach to practice
mindfulness for improving decision-making.
