ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the significance of studies of the human brain to managing employee behaviour regarding change. Based on recent brain activity analysis, human response to change is predictable and universal as well as uncomfortable. It mentions that brain can override adverse reaction to change with the use of a strategic, skillful approach. In the author's opinion, organisation attempting to make transformation succeed should educate its employees on new way of viewing change.
