Do You Know Your Own Mind?

Take a tour of your own mind in this leadership perspectives webinar as presenter Syed Azamatullah leads you through the different mental functional systems that, like departments in an organization, work together towards personal goals. Explore deep seated, limbic, and cerebral functions as well as the chairperson, promoting inter-functional awareness and integration. Participants will be introduced to mindfulness and role-modelling (personifying) techniques that will enable them to become more fully aware of how their own mind is working moment to moment so they can adjust contributions from various mind functions to meet emergent needs.

Outcome of Attending

  • Learn how to identify their own most and least strongly developed functional systems.
  • Gain an enhanced appreciation of the range of mental functions that contribute to performance.
  • See how problem solving capabilities may be enhanced by embodying the contributions from different functional perspectives.
  • Understand how individuals and leadership teams may be strengthened by optimally covering all of one’s functional bases when facing challenges.

In order to effectively conduct an orchestra it is helpful to know what sounds different instruments may make.

Join Syed for this Leadership Perspectives webinar and learn how to develop your own mental symphony.
