Presentation Titles: COVID-19 Adaptation and Planning for a Post-Pandemic Recovery via Neuroscience for Project Managers
Presentation Synopsis: In this engaging, interactive, and entertaining presentation, you as a project manager will dramatically improve your adaptation and planning for the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic using cutting-edge neuroscience-based strategies. Unfortunately, too many are operating in emergency mode in reacting to the short-term disruptions caused by the pandemic. Yet 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. It might even become a permanent fixture of our reality if the event vaccine is only as effective as the flu vaccine, which reduces the likelihood of illness by 50%. Neuroscience 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. Rather than hoping and planning for an optimistic scenario, you’re going to be much better off if you adapt to and plan for a realistic scenario. That means treating the current situation as the new normal, not a short-term emergency. Doing so involves evaluating and shifting your work to adapt to and plan strategically for the major disruption of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. This presentation will offer you neuroscience-based strategies to evaluate the situation realistically and to develop a long-term strategic plan to navigate successfully the disruptions caused by the pandemic.
