Rewriting Old Stories: Using the Power of Neuroplasticity for Personal Growth
Wednesday, January 10, 2018, 7:30 pm

Personal and professional growth require change. The power of neuroplasticity - the brain's ability to create neural pathways throughout life - means that we can rewrite the old stories we tell ourselves to create new thoughts and behaviors. Join TBE member Deb Elbaum and her colleague Jennifer Riggs to learn about neuroplasticity - what it is, and how we can use it to help us make needed changes in order to feel happier, calmer and more empowered. 

In this interactive evening, Deb and Jennifer will help participants learn ways to help enhance neuroplasticity and practice ways to break old patterns and create new ones. 



Deb Elbaum, MD, CNTC, PCC  is a neuroscience and executive coach, author, speaker, and longtime TBE member. She helps men and women navigate personal and professional change with clarity and confidence. 






Jennifer Riggs, JD, CNTC, is a certified neuroscience coach, blogger and speaker. She helps and empowers professionals to create change and thrive in their work and lives.
