Fear, uncertainty and isolation have been taking a heavy toll on all of us during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our emotions are running high. We are physically and mentally exhausted. How we take care of ourselves and each other makes a big difference in getting us through these trying times. Historical data have predicted an impending stress- induced mental health crisis. A big focus of leadership is reducing team members’ stress to boost their well-being and productivity. How do the brain and the body handle long-term stress? Are we well-adapted to deal with modern-day crises? Why do we often make irrational decisions when we are scared? Why is it so hard to stay calm when we are losing control? How do we maintain our physical and mental health when we can’t predict what will happen tomorrow? How do we avoid making other people’s lives more miserable? A large body of research has uncovered our natural stress response. There are many proven ways to reduce our stress in the long haul. Having control, predictability and progress is what the brain needs to stay calm and relaxed. Finding social support in crisis makes us feel safe. Developing outlets for fear and anxiety blunts the negative impact on our health. Contrary to popular belief, positive thinking can cause more stress. In this talk, you will learn the science of stress reduction. You will develop an understanding of the stress response and its impact. You will find out how to stay relaxed and productive in any circumstance. You will gain new insights into why it is important to have control, predictability and progress. You will discover that we can reduce stress by doing, instead of thinking. Thinking our ways out of stress is an illusion, instead of Reality. Get the answers to:
Dr. Terry Wu received his Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Vanderbilt University. He has a 30-year career in Neuroscience. He has been running his marketing firm for 20 years, giving his clients a strong competitive edge by applying insights from Neuroscience and Psychology. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Wu has been studying how to apply Neuroscience to Leadership. He found that leadership development had been focused primarily on teaching leaders how to lead, but not why the brain follows. This weakness was amplified by the pandemic during which leaders scrambled to find ways to lead or someone to follow. Dr. Wu’s research on the Neuroscience of Leadership has uncovered many practical and actionable insights that empower leaders with science to make their leadership more predictable and successful. In May, 2019, Dr. Wu gave a 17-minute TED Talk on Neuromarketing. His talk has been watched by 200,000+ people around the world. His talk has been raising awareness about this new, scientific approach to marketing.
