Ask and You Shall Achieve: Using Neuro-Axiology to Engage Leaders in Their Own Self-Development

Topic:  At the heart of all leadership development programs is self-leadership. This presentation will walk you through the 3 Questions that every organization must use to grow a culture of professional development and self-leadership.

More specifically, this presentation will discuss the principles and practices of cognitive self-leadership. Significant and sustainable improvements in leadership, talent, culture, and performance require significant and sustainable improvements in thinking. No “skill” is more important than cognitive self-leadership or one’s ability to engage their very best thinking and cognition at will.

At the heart of cognitive self-leadership is the practice of asking oneself the right questions at the right time. Questions have the power to sustainability and quickly transform human thought and behavior.

Learner Objectives:  

  • Participants will come away with specific questions to ask themselves that will cause them to be a more effective self-leader in all circumstances.
  • Participants will know how to ask the Central Question, the “Good” question and the Mission Critical Questions that will transform their performance.
  • Participants will recognize the persistent gap in their current development programs AND know how to bridge that gap using the tools of cognitive self-leadership.
