X Topic abstract

The University of North Carolina has been studying the relationship between neuroscience and leadership. As they map the human brain, they are finding that resonant leaders, are those leaders with social and emotional awareness,they open pathways in their employees’ brains that encourage engagement and positive working relationships.
The UNC studies confirmed that people fear change. In fact, because our brain is hardwired for survival, change is almost always perceived as a threat. So a better way to find success with a team or individual is to help them reduce stress and anxiety by asking questions, listening actively, and being present with them. These actions enhance the brain’s ability to adjust its response to the change and perceive it as an opportunity, not a threat. This is part of the Growth Mindset and helps us meet the Principle of Making it Happen. You have to be able to adapt, learn then simplify it to make it happen.
The 45 minutes talk is designed to help understand emotional and social awareness while creating understanding about how our thoughts and actions can support or sabotage success. Equally, this awareness can be applied to our teams as we help them navigate projects, change, and career moves.
To be an integrated person and leader, it is important to have awareness about our Four Realms so we create balance, sustainability and resilience in our lives.
When these realms are cared for and balanced, we become integrated people and leaders who can show up fully and consistently, thereby building trust in others.
To build a culture of trust, respect and empowerment with team members, peers, and supervisors, people need to know who you are. They need to know if you’re credible, reliable and if you know yourself.

Most of the meetings are not effective, since the basic clarity on the role of each participant is missing, the metrics to measure the success is missing and a scorecard missing leading to just superficial emotional discussions, normally involving just a handful of people while others watch. The key is to change this with planning, preparation, practice, pleasure and progress.
