IIL Free Webinar - The Economics of Gratitude, Purpose, Agency and Mindfulness

Power Skills

Webinar Overview (from IIL website):

Beyond the feel-good impact on corporate culture of something as simple as gratitude, there are also the potential economic benefits of gratitude in the workplace.

Neuroscience teaches us that gratitude increases both oxytocin and dopamine production, enhancing mood, motivation, and pro-social behaviors. And it works for both the giver and receiver of gratitude. How does this flow through to better economics at an organizational level?

The Center for BrainHealth, University of Texas at Dallas is one of the world's leading neuroscience centers. Its goal is to increase our understanding of neuroplasticity and how our own actions impact brain health and performance. Brainomics, a term created by the Center for BrainHealth, is the discipline that examines the economic impact of brain health and brain performance, with a particular focus on the economics of proactive interventions.

In this webinar, we will introduce the concept of Brainomics and share what is known about the economics of gratitude, purpose, agency, and mindfulness. We will dive into the concept of agency, the capacity of individuals to have the power and resources to fulfill their own potential. We will learn about the Brainomics team’s goal to uncover evidence of economic benefits that will encourage organizations to move in a brain-healthy direction, all of which are getting increasing attention from economists and business leaders alike.
