Welcome to the
Those of you who have been following my story for a while know that three years ago, I experienced a freak accident which led to a brain injury. I didn't know it at the time, but this injury would change my life. Not just because of the severity of it, but because of the valuable lessons I would learn through my recovery and brain rehab that have taught me a lot about how I want to work and lead my life.
Recently, I was featured in the Business section of The Globe and Mail newspaper as well as some trade publications in articles about neuroleadership. As the CEO of Potential Unlimited, I work with people who are all wanting to do more with less. They are moving at a fast pace with technology having them turned on 24/7, and of course, we can't forget all of our personal commitments. The reality is, we just have so many to do's in our lives that it may feel, at times, we are losing ourselves and scattered in our work.
Due to all of the interest I have been receiving from the media articles, I have decided to begin a newsletter series to teach people about neuroleadership. These principles will help you understand how you can leverage your brain to its fullest ability and bring more peace to your life.
Rewiring your brain is a multipronged approach so I encourage you to take what feels right for you from each of the articles over the next couple of months and try it on. I invite you to tell your friends about this series. They can register for this FREE series now.
Enjoy the ride!

Neuroleadership - Part 1:
The Pace to Win the Race.
Using Neuroleadership as a Competitve Advantage
The study of neuroleadership is a relatively new approach to the way we work. Essentially, neuroleadership is knowling how to leverage your brain and the way it functions to its maximum efficency in each moment to be stronger and more fulfilled.
What you will learn is how to 'hack' your brain to change patterns and be able to live and work in a more focused way. As part of this series, I will begin to introduce a few of the tools I use with clients who are interested in growth in this area. And when I say growth, I literally mean your brain will grow and change its structure.
For instance, the area of your brain primarily in charge of executive functioning activities such as high level decision making, planning and focus is located within the prefrontal region of the frontal lobe. Research shows that by performing the exercises I will share with you on a regular basis, you can actually enlarge this area of your brain.
Giving yourself and your staff a brain tune-up is the best investment you can make. Having a happy, healthy, intelligent group of people on board is a win-win situation.
Today's feature on Neuroleadership is around a tool I learned at brain rehab, Pacing. I still employ pacing every day and I work with many of my clients on it, too. Read more
