  • Award winning UCLA Professor and Co-founder of Human Complex Systems program
  • Internationally recognized author and speaker on neuroscience / personality
    • Neuroscience of Personality: Brain Savvy Insights for All Types of People
  • Neuroscience lab manager since 2006

Key Take-Aways
– Explore the brain’s 4 leadership modes and identify your strengths and weaknesses
– Discover mode shifting strategies for adapting to different work situations
– Learn how neuroscience relates to personality style tools like DiSC, MBTI, & others
– Actions to apply brain science to become a more agile leader starting tomorrow

Do you or your client have a leader’s brain?
What does that even mean?
And can we improve leadership skills?

After some brain basics, we focus on the prefrontal (“executive”) regions of the brain behind the forehead. Participants will get to profile their likely strength and usage with four particular regions. These regions link to personality models like DiSC and MBTI. Beyond that, we have capacity in all four — often with a primary and a secondary executive — and what is key is when and how well we use them together. Moreover, each our “executives” is more than cognitive. It effects emotions, attention, presence (physicality), and so forth. Often, emotional responses are the hidden ingredient in how we lead. Participants will have a chance to practice their secondary executive style as a way to improve coordination and flexibility across a variety of situations. A handout will allow them to take home the ideas to integrate with their current facilitation practices. 

We are excited to have graphic facilitator Nevada Lane on hand to transform the conversations into artwork
