Brain-based workshops

Knowledge workers’ best asset is their brain. Understanding how the mind works can become a secret weapon to work better and faster while taking care of your mental health.

Yet, searching for productivity strategies has become akin to crawling through a minefield: so many productivity gurus, bad science, and unproven techniques claiming to be designed to help you achieve your goals.

Ness Labs offers engaging, science-based workshops to make the most of your mind. Using the latest research concepts in neuroscience and designed for small groups of 5-20 people, these in-person workshops provide a space for learning, exploration, and discussion.

Riya Pabari - Testimonial for brain-based workshop by Ness Labs

“Anne-Laure led a fantastic workshop for our tribe on the topics of Growth Mindset & Metacognition. She has a wonderful ability of simplifying the complex and making scientific concepts both accessible and applicable. And her delivery style is totally unique—engaging, insightful and wonderfully human.”

Riya Pabari, CEO, Founders Academy.

Because people learn best by doing, all workshops balance interactive exercises and discussions, as well as space to figure out how to implement these strategies after the session.

Growth mindset workshop (1h30)

Participants will learn the difference between growth mindset and fixed mindset, perform a mindset audit to identify and address their fixed mindset areas, and explore ways to become comfortable with the idea of making mistakes and asking questions.

Metacognition workshop (1h30)

In this workshop, participants will learn how to implement metacognitive strategies to improve their learning and performance, and use a proven technique to approach problem solving as a team.

Joy triggers mini-workshop (45 minutes)

Best included as part of a longer event or as an ice-breaker at the beginning of an afterwork, this mini-workshop will educate participants about the brain chemistry of joy, and will teach them a simple technique to trigger joy on demand. Includes a little gift participants can take away and keep on using. Can be made shorter or longer depending on how much space is given for conversation.

Mental gym sessions (1h)

We also offer a variety of mental gym sessions, which are better booked as a recurring event to offer employees or cohort members. Each session will explore a mindful productivity topic, with a short informal presentation, a discussion, and an activity.
