Watch this session from Elaine Sullivan at Agile On The Beach 2018 entitled ‘Using Neuroscience To Build High Performance Teams’
Neuroscience isn’t just for the realm of scientists, by understanding how we think, feel and act and, perhaps more importantly, why, the art team building and the ability to provide the right supportive atmosphere within which the members can thrive is significantly enhanced.
Using plain English, Elaine brings together the current understandings of the exciting discipline of neuroscience. Through the awareness of its key elements, from behavioural through to social interaction, we can use this knowledge to our advantage in order to create and build high performance teams.
Elaine Sullivan started her career within the IT industry having caught the IT bug at 9 years of age. By 24 she was the Network Manager for Compaq UK and headed up Compaq’s European Network Managers group and continue to work within IT and technology throughout her career working with companies such as IBM, Siemens, Fujitsu, Aviva, Vodafone and O2 and, having trained under Jeff Sutherland, been an early adopter of Agile.
