The latest insights into the workings of the brain help explain why certain behaviors are counterproductive while others improve engagement and allow for change.

Michael Beck, executive coach, business strategist and author of ‘Eliciting Excellence – Bringing Out the Best in People’ has been selected as a featured speaker for the 2016 ATD – Cascade Conference (Association for Talent Development) Oct 13, 2016, to be held at the Portland Sheraton Airport Hotel.

Michael’s talk “Achieving Lasting Behavioral Change: Brain Science isn’t Rocket Science” will offer attendees the latest research on brain science and how it impacts the ability to affect positive changes in people. Beck is quoted as saying, "It's critical to understand the causes of disengagement. The latest insights into the workings of the brain help explain why certain behaviors are counterproductive while others improve engagement and allow for change." His talk will address how external influences affect the brain, what doesn't work when attempting to change people's behavior, and how to successfully achieve lasting change.

Brain science and behavioral change are areas of interest and study for Beck as an executive coach who works with senior executives. Beck’s book ‘Eliciting Excellence’ describes the necessary competencies and strategies needed to bring out the best in people. Beck points out that while good strategies and smart decisions are important, leaders will maximize results by helping people to be their best. Beck says, "We believe that bringing out the best in people is the essence of exceptional leadership."
