How to engage your brain better

Are you too busy being busy in meetings to remember, let alone lead? The responses have been interesting across all of my platforms regarding how the brain remembers, but especially what one should do in meetings. As for the note taking, for context, this is the kind of task that lands on the “scribe” in the meeting, and typically more junior, often inequitably, female professionals. Sis, you have…

How stress can help you to remember details

Stop the note taking, Sis. I understand that you want to remember everything when you are in that meeting; but not only does this undermine your position as a leader, it doesn’t allow you to fully tap into your brain’s superpowers. Did you know that science has proven that the mere stress and adrenaline from key moments in time put your mind’s ability to remember in high-gear. In…

Shift your perspective

Sometimes, what’s obvious isn’t what’s causing the problem. I remember once when there seemed to be a colleague hell-bent on my undoing. It was odd to me because until a certain point, I thought that we were good. In fact, it was so disturbing because this colleague seemed to be going to great lengths to undermine me, but I would learn eventually that what was obvious wasn’t the…

You’re being taxed twice. How will you reel it in?

I shared this with my Black women leaders and others in my private online community SLAYNET on Monday, and I think its worth sharing broadly here. In Tuesday’s #NSCRockstarLeadership Tip, we talked about competitive neuroplasticity, in other words, the way you train your brain to be more distracted when you attempt to “multitask.” Neuroscience has nicknamed this phenomenon the brain tax. How might this impact Black women leaders?…

How to be more focused

Are you the ultimate cause of your lack of focus? 🤪 You’re training your brain to be distracted. 🧠 Did you know that you might be training your brain to be more distracted by “multitasking”? It’s called competitive neuroplasticity, according to neuroscience, and it is the act of overloading your brain with too many processes.
