We invite you to attend the Georgia GMIS Conference “Your Brain on GMIS” Spring Conference in Athens!

This conference will give you the opportunity to learn how the core competencies of Emergenetics can be applied in the environments unique to state and local governments as well as a topic that impacts everyone: Security. The interactive sessions will include information related to your environment, along with up-to-date information and detection methods.


About the Emergenetics workshop 

The workshop is an innovative and engaging program that reveals individual thinking and behaving preferences through a brain-based assessment and provides an accurate measure of your personal attributes. The interactive session uses an experiential learning process designed to bring about a clear understanding of how people approach work, their communication styles and how they interact with others. It heightens self-awareness and creates more effective teams.


Why Participate 

Individuals learn to leverage their own strengths and develop awareness of how to communicate and work more effectively by harnessing diverse perspectives. 
The result is increased self-awareness, an ability to collaborate successfully on diverse teams and is practical professional development.
