Covid-19 Coronavirus Pandemic Adaptation and Planning via Neuroscience for Nonprofit Professionals
In this engaging, interactive, and evidence-driven presentation, you as a nonprofit professional 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.
This course will be conducted live via a combination of online and phone conferencing (i.e., "webinar"). The online conference will include a PowerPoint presentation and text chat capabilities. Participants will have opportunities to ask questions and interact with the presenter(s) and other participants via chat and teleconference.
We encourage all participants to bring other colleagues and co-workers to this training. There is no additional fee for multiple participants at the same location, as long as all individuals share the same phone and computer connection.
Note: A recording of this presentation will be available at no cost for Society members only.
