Brief Description:

In this engaging, interactive, and entertaining presentation, you as an IT professional will dramatically improve your adaptation and planning for the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic using cutting-edge neuroscience and behavioral economics-based strategies. Unfortunately, too many are operating in emergency mode in reacting to the short-term disruptions caused by the pandemic. Yet realistic assessments by the best epidemiology experts suggest the pandemic will be around for the next 3 to 5 years, until an effective vaccine is created and mass produced. Research shows that our gut reaction is to adapt to and plan for best-case scenarios and to focus on short-term threats, instead of taking a realistic and long-term perspective on slow-moving disasters such as the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. Instead, you need to shift your work and your internal and external business model to adapt to the major disruption of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. This presentation will offer you neuroscience and behavioral economics-based strategies to navigate successfully the disruptions caused by the pandemic, ensuring that your career and business not only survives but thrives.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify where your current reaction to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic might be oriented excessively toward a short-term and/or optimistic outlook
  • Learn about the neuroscience-based evidence for how we tend to make poor choices in the face of slow-moving major disruptions like the pandemic
  • Discover techniques to evaluate and shift your work to adapt to and plan effectively for the long-term impact of the pandemic.
  • Tailor the best practices on responding effectively to the pandemic to your own situation and context
  • Develop a long-term strategic plan to navigate successfully the disruptions caused by the pandemic for your work
