Be the Hero – Using your brain to boost your emotion and perform at your best

Be the Hero – Using your brain to boost your emotion and perform at your best
January 28, 2013 at 11:00 - 12:00 PM ET
Noah Blumenthal, President(Leading Principles, Inc.)
No one is free of challenges. Work and life events stress us out, people treat us unfairly, and we sometimes feel powerless. Life is uncertain, and change is constant. Sometimes it is easy to play the part of the victim. Yet some people are at their best even in the toughest times. No matter the stress or challenge, they are positive, energized and taking productive action. Anyone can become that person – the everyday hero.

By understanding how our brains work – how we feed them and nourish our best states of mind and how quickly thoughts occur that prevent our best efforts – we can choose the ideas and train our brains to bring out our best. In fact we can reprogram our brains to react, feel, think and act better than ever before.

Based on neuroscience, positive psychology, and eastern philosophy, these proven techniques improve your ability to respond to adversity, work more effectively and build stronger, more productive teams.

In this entertaining and highly interactive session you will receive concrete tools and techniques that you can implement immediately to overcome challenges and shape your success in work and in life. It’s your choice. Wouldn’t you like to Be The Hero?

“Best session ever. It was awesome!”
-       Claudia Mills, Learning Manager, Child Health Corporation of America

“Fabulous! Inspiring!”
-       Dr. Narendra Kini, CEO, Miami Children's Hospital

“I was thrilled by the receptivity of the audience to your stories and exercises. People were energized, laughing and learning all at the same time. Thank you for helping make our conference a huge success.”
-       Kent Keith, CEO, Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership

Great webinar! I'd suggest a part 2 webinar that includes information on why - what aspect of human nature what need we're trying to meet - humans tend to view things from the victim role. Also include info/tactics re: how to sidestep emotional reactions (anxiety fear) that feed decisions to take the victim stance and also interfere with the ability to think clearly to develop solutions; it's easier to think of strategies when you're not in the middle of the situation. Thank you! 5 / 5

I had a hard time getting into the event. Perhaps because I was a late registrant there was no link in my email and even going to the registration email that asked me to test my computer to make sure I COULD connect didn't help get me to WHERE I needed to be when it started. The site CRAWLED at 11 and I couldn't initially find a way to enter the webiner. I hope to find this as a recorded webinar to listen to in full later. The last 1/2 was good. There were a few audio drops during the presentation. 3 / 5
