The Biology of Business
Overcoming blind spots to become your best biological self

December 12, 2017


Business, biology, brain science: Dr. Rebecca Heiss brings the best of all three worlds together. With her expertise in human behavior and evolutionary psychology, Rebecca’s style brings her audiences along for an enlightening journey into their own minds.
After earning a PhD with research designated as “transformative” by the National Science Foundation, Rebecca went on to hold multiple appointments in academia, applying her research to solve practical problems in overcoming what she refers to as “biological ghosts”—subconscious behaviors that haunt modern life. Described as a creative thought leader, she was honored to deliver a TEDx on a portion of her work and has built her career on helping others break through their evolutionary ethical “blind spots.” Having conquered the business of biology, Dr. Heiss has turned her focus to revolutionizing the biology of business. Rebecca’s engaging personality energizes individuals and organizations to view their behaviors and choices through an insightful new lens. Her accessible, fresh perspective empowers clients to “connect the dots” to transform conceptual frameworks into actionable items that deliver results. Through her dynamic and humorous keynotes and workshops, Rebecca effectively bridges gaps between what we know (that just isn’t so) and the power of our brains to break through to our best selves.
