Think Better

Presented by: Katie Pace, Steelcase

Designers – 0.1 CEU; Architects – 1 LU (pending)

In workplaces around the world, scenarios of near constant distractions have become the norm. We text during meetings, skim on lunch breaks to catch up on work – always trying to process faster, handle more and work harder, often without realizing just how much we’re degrading our mental capabilities in the process. By delving into the findings of recent neurosciences research, Steelcase researchers have gained new insights into how our brains shape thoughts, emotions and behaviors, and then applied this new science to create concepts for how thoughtfully designed workplaces can mitigate distractions and prime workers to better manager attention.  This presentation will discuss how workers can better manage the full capacity of their attention, leveraging the physical environment to optimize brain performance.

Katie will be presenting “Think Better” in both a morning and afternoon session. Seating is limited, so please RSVP early.

Presentation attendees can enter to win a
