Connie Henson presented to a group of senior leaders who are members of The Executive Connection (TEC) in NSW. Her talk ‘Leadership through uncharted territory’ provided some valuable and highly practical lessons about change: why we do what we do from both a physiological and emotional perspective and how to work with that. She also described recent neuroscience research that shows how labelling emotion helps people remain focused and perform more effectively while dealing with changes. Feedback from participants was highly positive and I personally took away some powerful insights about how to best support people when they are feeling the pain of change and restructure.
