We will take you beyond what was presented at The Conference Board's 2008 "Leadership Development Conference" for a deep dive into the key issues and take away points of the presentation. We are bringing back David Rock live in our studio for an hour to zero-in on the presentation highlights video which will be rebroadcast over the web. You will then have the opportunity to participate in an interactive discussion, question and answer session and benchmarking with your peers.

Improving human performance involves one of the hardest challenges in the known universe: changing the way people think. David Rock, Author of Quiet Leadership will address the neuroscience of bringing out the best performance in others. He will explore what's involved in literally improving the way people's brains process information. David will look at leadership development programs and analyze why they work.

This presentation will feature five segments and will include conference highlights on:

  • Introduction of Neuroscience and Leadership
  • Working Memory and Implications for Leadership
  • Status — Perceived Threats and Behavior
  • Toward and Away Behavior — Certainty and Change
  • Autonomy and Relatedness
