Headstrong Leadership – Stay Cool Under Pressure and Influence Effective Change
What do the latest insights into the link between health and the workings of the human mind have to offer to Leadership Development?

This session offers insights into our leadership brains and provides practical strategies how we can utilize that knowledge to stay cool under pressure, improve our focus and instil innovation.

This keynote explores the science behind, the ever elusive, employee engagement and offers practical insights into how we can utilize health strategies to inspire engagement and create a culture of operational fitness in our work-force.
