October Monthly Event

"The Neuroscience of Effective Leadership
(Understand the Impact on Innovation and Creativity)"

October 8, 2018 

Take responsibility for your impact, results and reputation as a project manager. This session will help participants create awareness of the one thing that will help them improve results in their business and personal roles. It will help them begin to solve the challenges they face every day and to more successfully achieve their goals. The Neuroscience of Effective Leadership has less to do with skill, education and intelligence, and more to do with the ability to think clearly under pressure, manage and motivate people effectively, and to change your approach as necessary. It has to do with your emotional intelligence!

This class provides leaders with the skills to recognize how emotions drive behaviors, the difficulty in managing one’s own emotions, and the emotions of those around them. Tools to manage interpretation of information and appropriate levels of reactions are reviewed. Leaders become more aware of their unconscious behaviors and learn to effectively manage emotions to make conscious decisions for future behaviors.
