This summer I started to learn to ride a motorcycle. What has struck me the most during the practical lessons is how my brain expects the bike to respond one way, but the physics make the opposite happen. This has been difficult for me to overcome because I rely a lot on my intuition. It occurred to me the skill of practicing questioning my intuition, or default reaction, is one I will need to practice regularly to improve at everything I do.
I love my job. One of the benefits is that I get to meet amazing people. A couple of months ago I went to the @ypoglobal Pacific Edge event where I saw Dr. Robert Cooper a leading expert in the field of neuroscience as it relates to leadership. I was such a believer in what he said that I hired him to come last week to speak to my management team. He was awesome and every member of my team loved what he said and walked away with things they can do immediately with our teams. I highly recommend Dr Cooper if you are looking for some one to come to your business and keynote a session. Thank you Dr. Cooper. On a side note I have this Be Amazing poster outside my office. He loved it and was excited to see that because he's good friends with Robin Sharma.
