Welcome to the
What is your gift? What life experiences have you gone through that have made you stronger and given you expertise in new areas that can help others?
I believe each of us has these gifts, whether we realize it or not. For me, the brain injury has been one of these valuable lessons in my life. This experience has given me greater depth as a person and breadth of knowledge around the power of slowing down as well as understanding how we can use our brains differently to serve us better.
This month, I am continuing Part 2 of my Neuroleadership Series that has dovetailed from the article I was recently featured in the business section of The Globe and Mail.
At first, I tried to deny this injury was a part of me. I wanted to run from it, not accept it. But over time, I realized that I needed to embrace who I am- the good and bad. I am learning that when we own all parts of ourselves and stand proud, wanting to share and help others, amazing things can happen.
I was recently notified by The Chopra Centre, headed by the world renowned doctor and meditation guru Deepak Chopra, that I am being considered as one of Deepak's featured experts for 2017.
I would have never dreamed of this opportunity before, but by opening myself up, letting my truth be known and sharing my lessons, I am seeing doors magically open for me.
Where can you shine brighter and show up more authentically in the world? The answer to that question will empower you and lead to a greater sense of overall fulfillment in your work and life.
Enjoy the ride!

Neuroleadership - Part 2:
How to Boost Your Leadership Memory.
Using Neuroleadership as a Competitive Advantage
As we progress in our careers and take on bigger roles with more responsibilities, there are a lot of balls to juggle. To be an effective leader, you need to be able to remember important details about multiple projects, team members, colleagues and clients. And then, add on your home responsibilities and it is no wonder that, at times, things feel like they are falling between the cracks.
This month's Neuroledearship Series that shares some of my first-hand brain expertise from my brain injury, years in rehabilitation and working with many of the best neurologists in the country, focuses on ways to help you better understand your brain to leverage your power more fully in the work you do as a leader.
Did you miss the Part 1 of the Neuroleadership Series or The Globe and Mail article from its Business section featuring how I apply lessons learned from my brain injury to the work I do as CEO of the career development firm, Potential Unlimited.
