    Conversation Reimagined (27) Conversation Reimagined for real connection, trust and intimacy - with guest, Andrew Newberg, MD

    It is impossible to not communicate. As Dr. Andrea regularly says, with every conversation – verbal, intentional, conscious or not – you pull others to you or you push them away. The challenge is staying conscious and intentional, at all times, in the presence of others. Most of us are only able to do so for brief periods before being interrupted by our inner speech. Today Dr. Andrea is joined by Andrew Newberg, MD, the primary neuroscientist behind her NeuroLeadership consulting and coaching practice. We'll discuss her favorite book of his, Words can change your brain: 12 conversational strategies to build trust, resolve conflict and increase intimacy. Newberg's brain imaging research provides dozens of evidence-based techniques that can be performed anywhere, in mere minutes, with powerful effects that positively change the brains' neurochemicals and structure, and create real connection and build trust in any relationship.

    Conversation Reimagined (26) Conversation Reimagined via Self-Compassion with guest, Dr. Kristin Neff

    Conversation Reimagined (26) Conversation Reimagined via Self-Compassion with guest, Dr. Kristin Neff

    Ever stop to consider you may be sabotaging your motivation, success or productivity? Today Dr. Andrea is joined by Dr. Kristin Neff, trailblazer, and expert in self-compassion. Its likely self-compassion is not what you think it is! We'll discuss the physiological problems of self-criticism that tap into the body's protect and defend system, releasing cortisol and adrenaline. Rather than a sabretooth tiger today's threats are a hit to our self-concept; and our body doesn't know the difference when we confuse our actual selves with our thoughts about ourselves. So, a negative work eval, snarkey comment from a friend, or self-criticism all threaten self-concept and drive us into protect and defend behaviors. We attack the problem, the problem being ourselves. We are both attacker and attacked. Hear from this pioneering expert how self-compassion can stop this behavior and make the difference in helping us thrive!

Together they will share the game changing, life altering results of NeuroLeadership needed for optimal functioning, in a way you didn't realize possible, for you and your team.

    Conversation Reimagined (24) The Conversation of Customer Service Reimagined with guest, Beth Aarons, Dorchester Collection Academy

    All relationships have an emotional component. How many companies have we decided to stop doing business with after watching how they treat their employees and customers? Leaders face an urgent need for increased empathy and emotional understanding of their customers and employees, yet these concepts are often not emphasized or neglected. Our understanding and approach to emotions must be altered. Emotions are the drivers of everything we do, are necessary for making decisions, and important to understand because they are linked to stock price. Today, Dr. Andrea talks with Beth Aarons from the Dorchester Collection Academy. Listen for tips from how this company gets customer and employee care and service right, to lead rather than follow the competition.

    Conversation Reimagined (23) Conversation Reimagined to resiliently thrive with Guest, Dr. Srini Pillay

    Conversation Reimagined (23) Conversation Reimagined to resiliently thrive with Guest, Dr. Srini Pillay

    People keep telling me they feel they're reliving the same day over and over again. That's because in times of uncertainty we tend to fall back to the past and do what we've known. The question is, how do we stop going backward and switch gears to move forward, toward resilience and thriving, when everything around us feels so out of sorts? Today's guest, Dr. Srini Pillay is an expert in resilience and understanding how to work with our brain in ways that lead us toward the thriving we desire, while avoiding our habitual traps and backward slides. When we understand how to engage with our brain and keep it at optimal functioning, the opportunity to thrive is much more within our grasp.

    Conversation Reimagined (22) Conversation Reimagined through play with Guest, Dr. Ian Bogost

    We're living through challenging and uncertain times of a pandemic and civil unrest. Interestingly, we can learn to manage our anxiety and stress through play. Play is not frivolous or an after thought to squeeze in once our work is done. Today's guest, Dr. Ian Bogost, is an expert in play, game design and contemporary literature. Together he and Dr. Andrea will reimagine conversation through play. Play functions to build our social brain so we know how to interact positively with others. Play helps us maintain our social well-being. Playing is how we connect. Not playing has serious consequences. Play has even been discovered as an innate emotional process, necessary for social bonding and a way to understand when to approach or avoid, for survival.
