As an evolutionary biologist, Rebecca brings refreshing insights from the biological perspective to help her clients make sense of the "whys?" underlying our behaviors as individuals and institutions. Key highlights of her signature workshop include:
- Reconciling stone-aged brains to operate more efficiently in a modern world
- Understanding bias and helping it to work for you, not against you
- Building cooperation, and stimulating creativity and innovation through inclusion by understanding the underlying mechanisms that regulate these processes at a neurological level
