Handy Brain Model

A great "handy" model of the brain that illustrates the interactions between our limbic system and the prefrontal cortex - in case you haven't seen it before.

In the context of difficult change this is a super important illustration because once we neurocept (appraise) threat, danger, or discomfort we may "flip the lid", the brain is no longer integrated and we need effective subconscious/ implicit skills to bring the brain back to an integrated state (where our prefrontal cortex and higher brain functions are communicating effectively with our emotions).

Dan comes from a family therapy discipline but I believe this illustration explains what happens in the brain when we face difficult change and is really great in executive coaching and other change management efforts in organizations :)
