Evolution has hardwired your brain to think on autopilot, using mindsets you do not know about, to make decisions you do not control. Understanding, observing and directing our brain can help us heighten our self-confidence and positively impact our ability to overcome obstacles and achieve results - also known as positive self-efficacy. During this podcast, Liz West and Bill Richardson explore how the brain works and practical steps we can take to “take control of our brains”. Join Liz and Bill as they discuss a framework for effective problem solving, which you can implement for more effective decision making and action planning.
