Ever feel frustrated because the people you work with don’t seem to be on the same wavelength or speak the same language? Ann Herrmann-Nehdi helps you crack the code of leading in a whole-brain kind of way. She’s a world-renowned author, thought leader, keynoter and researcher whose work specializes in the practical application of neuroscience, learning and ongoing thinking research. In her conversation with The TalentGrow Show’s host, Halelly Azulay, Ann talks about why the brain is one of our most important and most overlooked business tools. She describes what she means by “Whole-Brain Thinking” and why we all need to become more deliberate in our thinking. In fact, Ann shows us how we can, and should, think more like a CEO (she has researched more than 9000 of them, so she knows). Ann discusses common thinking errors, offers stories about how to overcome them, and suggests a super actionable and essential mindhack that every one of us must incorporate to improve our leadership skills.
Episode 6 of the TalentGrow Show features Halelly Azulay's conversation with speaker, author, creativity expert and innovation consultant Gregg Fraley. They discuss whether creativity can be taught (yes!), how important it is to ensure awareness and diversity of creative styles on your team, and ways to leverage the Creative Problem Solving (CPS) model to increase the quality and divergence of your ideas for solving important business problems. Gregg and Halelly also chat about the surprising connection between creativity and conflict, the $4 billion secret you can learn from chocolate peanut butter to create exciting breakthroughs, and the cool product called “IdeaKeg” that his company, Kiln, has been sending clients like General Mills to increase their creativity and innovation (and why Halelly totally wants one).
