Reflecting on the last month, name the percentage of time that you performed at your best at work? in your personal life? How good do we feel day in and day out? In the last decade, prominent evidence has emerged indicating that our brains operate in different “states.” A useful simplification of the findings: your brain performs on a continuum from “survival” mode to “growth/evolution” mode. Michael and Krystal explain science based models of performance that inform leadership effectiveness. Individual leadership performance has the largest impact on the functioning of a team. Training your brain and body to perform optimally, and then helping others do the same, is a thought leaders core responsibility. Tune in to discover what these states look like, and how to shift into your best brain, and lead others to do the same.
