About the Session
Inspiring leaders often embody their values, vision and commitment--especially under pressure. Good leaders align their actions with their values. The key to becoming this type of leader requires building “muscle memory” which many of us do without even realizing it. In fact, 95 to 99 percent of the time, we operate based on learned habits and instincts. While we may believe we are choosing how to behave, in truth, our rational mind plays a limited role in behavior.
Join Marcia Feola, MCC, principal, PowerfulWork, LLC; and @Sharon Newport, CAE, principal, Sharon Newport LLC; for AXC where they will share leadership theories from experts such as Dr. Dan Siegel, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, UCLA School of Medicine, Founding Co-Director of the Mindful Awareness Research Center; Dr. David Rock, Co-Founder and CEO, NeuroLeadership Institute; Wendy Palmer, Founder Leadership Embodiment; and Richard Strozzi-Heckler, PhD, Founder, Strozzi Institute.
In this interactive session, association executives will learn how the body plays a greater role than previously thought, how it informs our perceptions and behaviors, and guides both our professional and personal relationships.
