Overview : HeartMath, an innovative research and training center near Silicon Valley, has developed a set of tools and technology to help executives at any stage of their career, prepare for the next step in success, performance, and well-being. Based on work tested and refined through the Stanford Business School, this program will introduce you to key principles and scientific research to help you prepare for the unexpected, and increase your inner strength, balance, resilience, and overall performance. Experts agree that there are several critical skills that allow any executive to be "ready" in the face of rapid change and uncertainty. |
This presentation will explore the resilience model and its relevance to the demands on executives, its scientific basis, as well as significant case studies which will help listeners consider how to apply its principles. An intriguing dimension will be the role the heart plays in emotional processing, and therefore the development of readiness skills. HeartMath introduced the concept of physiological coherence to describe the degree of order, harmony and stability in the various rhythmic activities within the human system . What athletes call "the zone", psychologists call "flow", is actually a specific physiological state which is common and can be developed by anyone. It is known as coherence. Researchers have found that positive emotions such as inspiration, appreciation and compassion, as opposed to negative emotions such as anxiety, anger, and fear, are reflected in a heart rhythm pattern that is more coherent. These same emotions underlie readiness and flexibility on physiological, emotional, and mental levels. This concept will be explored in depth, along with practical examples for its application and development.
Why should you attend: High performance athletes, performers and soldiers understand well the importance of thorough preparation and readiness. Most successful business leaders understand that business success - both for the individual performer as well as the organization seeking to retain and delight customers - is increasingly dependent on being "ready for anything" - in terms of flexibility, adaptability, and agility. You will learn compelling new evidence for the development of executive readiness skills. You will learn how to avoid common traps most businesspeople (especially leaders) fall into. You will leave inspired and eager to learn more.
