Brain Wealth: Building a Fully Invested BrainPhyllis Strupp, Brain WealthTrack: Post-CertificationCompetency Area: Leadership
This unique program offers leaders practical tools for managing their most important asset—the brain. Personal strengths use brain areas unevenly, causing active areas to become exhausted and less-active areas to get sluggish. This imbalance can lead to poor communication and strained relationships on and off the job. By rebalancing their brain portfolios, successful leaders will increase their influence on others to get more done with less effort. Phyllis Strupp will review the latest scientific findings about brain integration, and how to use the Brain Portfolio™ Tool to improve the performance of underinvested brain areas. Participants will gain new insights on how the activities and programs of a private club can help staff and members alike build engaged, fully-invested brains in fun and fulfilling ways.
