    Facts and Beliefs About Leadership

    Facts and Beliefs About Leadership

    Speaker: John J. Engels
    President, Leadership Coaching Inc., Rochester, New York
    Beliefs about leadership govern every leader’s decisions and behavior. Some beliefs about leadership are closely aligned with reality. Others — including many widely accepted as “true” — are influenced more by emotional process and the imagination. This presentation will help leaders distinguish reality-based from emotionally-driven beliefs in an effort to maximize credibility and competence.

    The Parental Brain: Transformations and Adaptations

    The Parental Brain: Transformations and Adaptations

    Speaker: Kelly Lambert, PhD
    Professor and Chair, Department of Psychology, Randolph Macon College, Ashland, VA
    The transformation that accompanies the onset of motherhood and fatherhood in mammals is remarkable. Based on research with rodent and primate models, Dr. Lambert will discuss the neurobiological and behavioral aspects of these transformations. Her findings suggest that the transition from an animal focused on self-preservation to one that is responsive to the needs of other animals represents a significant transition in both neural and behavioral systems that enable parents to meet the many challenges associated with raising offspring.

    Systems Thinking and Leadership

    Speaker: Daniel V. Papero, PhD, LCSW
    Faculty Member at the Bowen Center for the Study of the Family, Washington, DC
    Like families, organizations have an emotional side to them that is predictable. In today’s anxious world, filled with stressed people and anxious organizations, systems ideas can help a leader understand the terrain of leadership, the forces at work within that terrain and provide some guidance for managing oneself effectively as a leader and a follower. This talk explores the implications of Bowen theory for organizational leadership.
