AbstractLeading businesses in times of economic turmoil involves emotion and stress. Some managers do their best work when under pressure whereas others meltdown or burnout. What methods can managers use to maintain grace under pressure, peak performance, and mindfulness? What does research tell us about the most effective ways to regulate our emotions? In this workshop, David Rock, a renowned coach and consultant in this area, will train you in the best practices that are increasingly grounded in recent neuroscience research. Psychology professor Kevin Ochsner, a leading researcher in the neuroscience of emotional regulation, will present a briefer "science" component explaining the latest insights from this field. Marketing professor Hitendra Wadhwa will moderate the discussion. This will be followed by a Q&A with both the practice and science experts about related topics.
