Here’s what 2020 taught me. Relationships are a non-negotiable. Connection is not a luxury that only some company cultures are good at. We are social, emotional beings. We need each other and we need our emotions engaged to do good work. We are all looking for leaders who will acknowledge this very human part of us, understand our perspective, and lead us with whole life understanding.
To help you find your groove early in 2021, I’m bringing back a favorite guest to kick off the new year on The Porch. We are mixing science and art on this one with one of my favorite neuroscience researchers and poet, Ann Betz. We’ll be talking about why having heart-centered orgs and a person who holds that space (people with titles like Chief People Officer, Heart Officer, Culture Coach) make sense for both the brains and the hearts of the people on your team.
Ann Betz, CPCC, PCC, CNTC, is the co-founder of BEabove Leadership and an international speaker and trainer on the intersection of neuroscience, coaching and human transformation. Ann served as the neuroscience consultant to The Coaches Training Institute (CTI) for many years, and provides neuroscience, leadership and coaching consulting to many other corporations and non-profits.
