This presentation explores the intersection of servant-leadership and interpersonal neurobiology and how making purposeful choices can design and redesign the neural pathways of the brain. Recursive processing of meaningful 'languaging,' expressed through resonant relationships, generates the neural architecture that is integral to the process of becoming an authentic servant-leader at the cellular level. The principles underlying the powerful juncture of 'languaging,' relationships, and interpersonal neurobiology provide substantiation that changes in physical, mental, and emotional behavior can become indelible neurobiological actualities during the identity formation of servant-leaders. Practical insights into neurobiological principles undergirding decisions to learn and change will be discussed.
Purpose: This presentation will explore how we can become a servant-leader at the cellular level. I will discuss core insights into how leadership is not simply mental or emotional; leadership also has a physical component, namely, the brain. Key question: How does purposeful choice design or redesign the brain in a way that helps us become a person who owns and exhibits the identity attributes of an authentic servant-leader?
