Your Brain on Conflict

Why is it so much harder to make a decision in the afternoon? Why did you suddenly remember the name of your client you’ve been trying to recall all day? Why did you completely erupt at your spouse when he asked you what you want eateor dinner?

Ken Buch, an Adjunct Faculty and Executive Coach at the University of Maryland Office of Executive Programs, explains the physical effects of your brain experiencing conflict.

You’ll be amazed to learn:

  • Why meaning-making, complex decision-making, and strategic thinking are so difficult late in the day.
  • How you convert experiences into long term memory.
  • Why social pain is actually more detrimental than physical pain.
  • What causes someone to “snap” and lose control.
  • What conditions you need in order to facilitate change.
  • How to employ specific strategies to minimize your limbic arousal.
