Shift Your Organization into Brain 3.0

Maximize performance, enhance inclusion and diversity, and thrive in a rapidly changing 21st century environment 

Inclusion and Diversity (I&D) support higher profitability and performance

According to McKinsey & Co., “Delivering through Diversity,” Jan 2018:

  • Companies with the most ethnically diverse executive teams are 33 percent more likely to outperform their least ethnically diverse peers on profitability.

  • Companies with the highest executive-level gender diversity are 21 percent more likely to outperform their least gender diverse industry peers on profitability.

  • Companies in the bottom quartile on both gender and ethnic diversity are more likely to underperform their industry peers on profitability by 29  percent.

The challenge for organizations is to design and implement effective I&D initiatives, because short-sighted programs can have the opposite effect of reducing inclusion.

 

Calm Clarity works with organizations to deliver thoughtful, effective, science-based training and initiatives that transform their environment into a safe, inclusive space for growth, collaboration, and unimpeded performance.

The Calm Clarity Approach

Use neuroscience and mindfulness to foster genuine inclusion, engagement, leadership and collaboration through these three offerings:

Deconstruct
Unconscious Bias

This training helps individuals and organizations recognize, address, and change limiting narratives and behaviors that undermine engagement and genuine inclusion and diversity.

 

Participants learn to use tools that help rewire their brain to be more inclusive and open to engaging with people who look and think differently from them.

Lead with
Authenticity

This leadership development program helps participants integrate their whole selves and tap into the resilience and compassion that naturally arises when people stop disowning marginalized aspects of themselves.

 

Participants learn and practice tools to build more authentic relationships with themselves, their colleagues, and community.

Boost Collaboration and Inclusion

This long-term team-building and development program addresses the challenges of working in diverse teams.

 

Participants benefit from individualized follow-on coaching to improve their ability, particularly during stressful situations, to effectively communicate and work with people with very different  backgrounds, perspectives, styles,  and needs.

A science-based methodology that creates immediate and lasting impact

The Calm Clarity framework makes complex neuroscience intuitively accessible by shedding light on how people fluctuate between three patterns of brain activation:

Our trainings also provide inter-active, experiential exercises that enable participants to sense visceral changes in their bodies as they activate Brain 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0. Then we guide participants to build a personalized daily routine to strengthen Brain 3.0.

 

  • Brain 3.0 -  wise, creative, and compassionate

  • Brain 2.0 - reward-seeking, competitive, and egotistical

  • Brain 1.0 - fearful, close-minded, and defensive

 

Deconstruct Unconscious Bias 

Using neuroscience and mindfulness

Learn how neural mechanisms underlie unconscious bias and identify patterns for “universal” biases that are hard-wired into the human brain. This interactive workshop provides a mindfulness-based framework to deconstruct biases and activate neural pathways (in Brain 3.0) that enable you to more effectively engage with people whose perspectives and backgrounds may be very different from your own.

 

This content can be offered as a 30-minute keynote, one-hour presentation,  or more in-depth two to three-hour workshop.

This Calm Clarity training enables participants to:

Become aware of the neural mechanisms underlying bias.

  • Understand how the associative activation of neurons leads to the formation of unconscious bias.

  • Learn and sense how biases are marked by emotional valence and are associated with three patterns of brain activation.

  • Identify patterns for “universal” biases that are hard-wired into the human brain.

  • Understand the effects of dominant culture, stereotypes, social scripts, and intersectionality on career progression and how to apply neuroscience and mindfulness to address and neutralize these effects. 

Learn and practice the NOTE framework to navigate and  neutralize unconscious bias

  • Notice the subtle signs of bias arising by being aware of emotional states and associations.

  • Open our minds with curiosity to explore how biases are hard-wired into our “autopilot,” often as life scripts.

  • Tune in to compassionately hold space to process charged emotions and calm amygdala hijacks triggered by past experiences of stigma, stereotyping, and shame.

  • Engage by activating neural pathways that enable us to embody our core values and respond with wisdom and compassion to create a more effective, genuinely inclusive, and collaborative path forward.

Lead with Authenticity 

Using neuroscience and mindfulness

This unique leadership program skillfully integrates neuroscience and mindfulness to show organizations how to strengthen the neural networks that support people to be more effective, responsive, resilient, innovative, collaborative, and inspiring.

 

Each module is a half-day workshop. This full training program can be delivered as a two-day offsite or as four modules delivered in sequence over a period of time.
 

Part I: The Science of Mind Training

Module 1: Boost Brain Functioning

Learn how you feel, think, and act differently when you are in Brain 1.0, 2.0, or 3.0 and how to strengthen Brain 3.0 using very practical techniques that are grounded in science.               
 

Module 2: The Voice in Your Head

Learn how to turn up the volume of your Inner Sage and disarm your Inner Critic so you can break free of negative patterns and self-limiting beliefs.  

Part II: Presence and Positive Relationships

Module 3: Minding Your Autopilot

Observe and re-train your autopilot so you can activate Brain 3.0 to break habits and patterns hardwired in Brain 1.0 and Brain 2.0 and use beginner’s mind to be responsive rather than reactive.

Module 4: Deepening Connection

Practice mindful listening and mindful speaking to be genuinely present for other people and build meaningful and positive connections in Brain 3.0.

Testimonials

“My senior executives and I found Due’s mindful leadership training very inspirational. Her powerful personal story touched all of us, and her faithfulness to the science impressed a very tough crowd, including the past president of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists."
