Denver, CO (PRWEB) April 08, 2014
Mike Vaughan, CEO of The Regis Company, the Golden-based provider of sophisticated simulations-based corporate training, will deliver a keynote presentation, followed by an interactive workshop, at the Humana Learning Consortium, an annual conference for the company’s internal learning professionals, held in Louisville, KY from April 7 - 10. In his presentation, “What to Think versus How to Think: Becoming a Value Worker," Vaughan will discuss the importance of factoring thinking styles and skills into employee development and training programs.
“My book is based on extensive research into the neuroscience of thinking and my own work in leadership development and training,” said Vaughan. “Leaders and employees who think critically, creatively, and systematically have a positive impact on their company’s growth and profitability. However, most people don’t have these thinking skills innately. Through the use of simulations and other approaches, learning professionals can help employees develop these skills and improve their decision-making abilities.”
Attendees will leave the session with an increased understanding of the neuroscience behind thinking and the relationship between core thinking practices and effective training.
Vaughan’s latest book, The Thinking Effect: How to Create Great Leaders and the New Value Worker, was published in October 2013.
