A Webinar Sponsored by ICF-MD

1.5 CCEUs in Core Competencies
Current research suggests that women lead differently than men (not necessarily any better or any worse). A secondary stress response unique to women might play a role in explaining these differences. This breakfast meeting will explore some of the neurobiological pathways associated with giving feedback, cooperating with others and leading. Don’t miss this exciting morning meeting about the neurobiology of leadership.
Participants in this session will:
- identify the five social triggers of the stress response;
- explain the “tend or befriend” stress response and women; and
- identify the role of neurobiological mechanisms that might explain leadership differences in men and women.
