Presenter: David Rock, NeuroLeadership Institute

Original program date: May 2017 (program no longer available)

Program length: 60 minutes

Senior leaders at many organizations are under pressure to increase their performance in order to meet aggressive corporate growth goals. Quality leadership development is needed more than ever. And yet, many organizations find their leadership development to be too disjointed - a collection of ideas and resources that do not fit together or support one another. Leadership development options are often hard to navigate, and seldom yield the kind of fast and lasting change many organizations now need. Join Dr. David Rock (Director, NeuroLeadership Institute) to discover how neuroscience provides a lens to rethink leadership development, suggesting the importance of three principles: simplicity, mutually-reinforcing content, and learning that taps into how memories are best formed.
