Re: The Neuroscience of Leadership with David Rock
- Hi Futurists,
You want to be a leader? You may want to look into the neuroscience for leadership this Monday the 20th of September.
David Rock who coined the term Neuroleadership. (I am still looking for the term that I could coin that will make me famous ;-)
Well, David will be sharing latest insights and discoveries of the science of our brain and what it means for our leadership.
You should come on Monday and get inspired. Only very few tickets left, the other groups have a waiting list already for the event.
He gave a similar talk at Google: "Brain at Work" last year and you can check that out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XeJSXfXep4M
This time he is going to focus on leadership.
More information about the event further down or at http://futuresalon.org
You can buy your ticket here with credit card or paypal:
We will sell out, there will not be any tickets to be purchased Monday evening.
It will be very interesting.
See you on Monday, Mark.
