Modern humans aren’t great at risk assessment.
We often blithely ignore that which could harm us, and are conversely intimidated by things that are quite safe. This inability to recognize threat has vast implications for many aspects of our lives, including our careers.
In this talk, we’ll explore root causes of fear and anxiety, and discover how we can start to deliberately rewrite our “instincts”. This will allow us to redirect our worry toward what actually matters, and channel it into productive outcomes that make us safer, happier and less stressed, both at work and in our personal lives.
