Inspiration Tours

Attendees will explore how Chicago's most innovative organizations are transforming the market through on-site, interactive tours.

An Experiential Workshop | Mindsets & Molecules: The Art and Science of Behavior Change 

For most people, new year’s resolutions rarely stick. In organizations, we watch “the way it’s been done” trumping innovation and more creative solutions. It can feel messy, frustrating and fruitless trying to drive sustained behavior change for our consumers and our employees. Why?

Join us for a curated, interactive workshop where we’ll explore the art and science of how to impact human behavior and activate organizations to achieve more. We’ll dive into the neuro- and behavioral factors that influence individual, team and system dynamics, as well as practical, human-centric wisdom that helps change stick and new patterns emerge.

Together with your peers, you’ll learn how to apply an arsenal of tools, tips and practical ways to overcome behavior change challenges that hinder the growth and transformation of healthcare.
