Know Your Mind:  The Royal Road to Leadership

This Leadership Breakfast of Maryland program will convey current neuroscientific formulations of “What is a Mind” and interactively seek ways in which these new understandings enhance our leadership capabilities.

More details: This session will involve a didactic presentation along with experiential components to explore basic concepts of Mind.  

We will: 

(1) Analyze four essential features of the Mind, 

(2) Compare activities of the mind that involve “primitive” structures and pathways versus “higher order” brain functions, 

(3) Delineate neural pathways underlying the psychodynamics underlying leadership behaviors, 

(4) Consider potential ways to optimize personal, social, organizational and cultural strategizing and decisional making.

Takeaways from the Session

  • A solution to the Mind/Body Problem
  • What consciousness is and isn’t
  • What is the unconscious and what it is for
  • The Primary Palette of Feelings
  • The Neuroscience of Motivation
  • What it means to have the “Mind of a Leader.”

Resolutionary Thinking

Focusing on solutions. Thinking creatively and tenaciously about outcomes. About what’s in your best interests. Getting matters resolved, so you can get on with what matters to you. That’s resolutionary thinking. And that’s made Shulman, Rogers, Gandal, Pordy & Ecker, P.A., one of the largest, most respected law firms in the Washington Metropolitan Area.

In 1972, Shulman Rogers was founded on a commitment to client service. Today, the firm’s roster of highly skilled attorneys and other dedicated staff members are all guided by that same commitment. A client-first approach. A smart, efficient practice. A relentless focus on problem solving. And an underlying compassion—for our clients and our community. It all adds up to resolutionary thinking. The kind of thinking you can count on from the people of Shulman Rogers.
