Target Tone Skills for Tough Times

I’ve been trying to tap into better tone skills in difficult settings, and find I still have a  distance to go to snip that amygdala before it snipes back. It’s often a matter of reflecting on tools to move forward with respect rather than frustration. Did you know, for instance that stressed brains rely more […]

Target Neuro Anatomy of Ethics

Ethics is to the brain’s sense of right or wrong, what a noble life is to a highly intelligent and thoughtful person. Truth is – the brain comes with moral potential.  It equips people to do what is good – even when that good comes with personal cost.  Sure, it takes a bit of work, […]

Target Brain Cell Regeneration

It was strongly held that adult brains cannot grow new cells or regenerate old ones. Recent research on aging though, is trumping commonly held myths. Elizabeth Gould’s dynamic discoveries in this area recently created an entirely new field of neurogenesis, a discipline that shows how the adult brain generates new cells. Elizabeth Gould at Princeton […]

Target Differences between Gender Brains

Some say that men’s logic rivals women’s emotion, when it comes to leading, problem-solving or coping with stress. Others say that successful men and women use both logic and emotion – but they use it differently to solve problems and cope with stress. What do you say? Interestingly,  hilarious mental differences you’ll spot in the […]

Target Lessons from Opposing Views

Target Multiple Intelligences – Run from Lectures

Take your brain back to the last lecture or meeting you endured, and you’ll likely agree with research that shows how lectures work against human brains.  It’s the same for meetings where few people talk for the most part. You retain less than 5% heard in lectures, while you retain more than 90% of what […]

Target to Reboot Your Brain

We’ve all met dynamic people who know just where they are headed, and observed flounderers who appear headed nowhere. But have you considered the mental dividends that come with setting clear targets, as Zig Ziglar described in this video. Do you know how to reboot for focus? Human brains rewire potent capabilities to achieve more […]

Target Agreement in Disagreeable Settings

While current leaders literally wired their brains for gridlock and compromise that’s poisoning this country, it’s also true that disagreements can  blast open  doors to life-changing ethical insights,  when people differ with the brain in mind. How so? If you’ve ever benefited from unique insights, you’ve likely also seen opposing viewpoints from high-performance minds,  that […]

To learn new technology, or accept an invitation to propose an innovation  takes more working memory, and relies less on traditions or habits. Ready to propel your life and leadership to new heights?
