    Contains 1 Component(s)

    In a volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world where associations and their members are forced to adapt and respond to change, leaders need more than tactical and technical skills.

    In a volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world where associations and their members are forced to adapt and respond to change, leaders need more than tactical and technical skills. Melissa Schreibstein, M.S., ACC, leadership coach and resilience trainer for the U.S. Army, will offer strategic planning for the critical mental, emotional, and social elements of workplace performance. The same strategies that U.S. Army leaders use to bolster resilience can help associations gain a mental edge and drive innovation. 

    Looking through the lens of two major theories that underlie resilience and performance science, webinar attendees will be able to:

    • Assess the quality of motivation and the culture of innovation within their organizations.
    • Explore how the Self-Determination Theory of Motivation (Deci & Ryan) and the Broaden and Build Theory of Positive Emotions (Fredrickson) can help set the conditions for an innovative culture.
    • Define tangible strategies they, as leaders, can put into action immediately to establish work environments where innovation thrives.

    Co-Founder & CEO, PropFuel

    While working for SAP, a multi-billion dollar software company, nearly 20 years ago, Dave Will was advised to "walk faster and smile less, because perception is reality". Dave took this feedback to heart and started a business based on the antithesis of this advice. 14 years later, Dave successfully sold Peach New Media, an LMS for associations, which is now part of Community Brands. Since then, Dave and former Peach, Cameron Aubuchon, built a Feedback Automation Platform called PropFuel and they're here again to help associations build a stronger relationship with their members, staff and boards by gaining insight on a frequent and continuous basis.

  • It’s Time To Go Full Frontal: How to drive transformative thinking by effectively leveraging your frontal lobe

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    It’s time to focus on engaging your brain at a higher level. It’s time to think smarter. It’s time to equip your brain with the ability to conquer the complexities of 21st Century work by going full frontal!

    image


    This free webinar is a  sneak peek of our upcoming Peak 2018 Conference session that aligns with Jeff Hurt’s keynote presentation Turbo Charge Your Brain To Maximize Education Programming Gains

    It’s time to focus on engaging your brain at a higher level. It’s time to think smarter. It’s time to equip your brain with the ability to conquer the complexities of 21st Century work by going full frontal!  

    Every day, you use your brain to complete your most important work. A maze of intricate neural networks act as the engine to solve challenges, to innovate, to learn, to plan, to reason, to manage your emotions, to think strategically. These networks connect past experiences and knowledge to today’s challenges.  

    Healthy resilient brains wire and fire across four major lobes: frontal, temporal, parietal and occipital.  

    The frontal lobe of your brain acts as the central command center. It links information back and forth across other brain regions. It’s where the executive functions of your brain reside. It’s where you do higher order thinking skills, like decision-making, planning, strategic thinking and more. If you want to work smarter, more efficiently and more effectively, you’ve got to practice going full frontal—leading from your frontal lobes--with transformative thinking. 

    Learner Outcomes:

    After attending this session, the participant will be able to:

    • Identify one full frontal strategy to increase your productivity and enhance your decision-making that leads to a more successful business regardless of your age.
    • Discuss how full frontal SMART Strategies lead to brain health and thus healthy, successful businesses.
