Demands upon executives today are beyond imagination. The pandemic was a significant change, and the aftermath has launched new demands that no one has seen before. Fortunately, neuroscience has also arrived at a fortuitous moment to help executives with a new way of thinking and using their minds. This blog will provide an intro that is important for consideration of executives and their future.
Neuroscience has educated us that there are 86 billion neurons in our brains. We are only aware of 5% of these neurons’ information, with 95% out of awareness in our subconscious. Leaders in our modern world must understand that developing mind management is not only a new frontier but an essential focus for leaders to embrace.
What is the difference?
We “think” that what we are conscious (aware) about is our total self. Imagine how much information from every experience in your life is stored in your brain – 95% of it in the subconscious brain. We have wired our brains to be able to cope and live in the modern world. Like first riding a bicycle, we consciously learn the skill, but soon after, it went into the subconscious, and now we can jump on a bike and take off without thinking about what is required.
This is how your subconscious works and takes over who and how you are! The wiring that YOU have done in your brain is both remarkable – and limiting.
How can an executive master mind management to be more effective and less limited?
An earlier blog noted that everything begins in the brain with our Focus of Attention. Where we place the focus is greatly influenced by what is in our subconscious.
In the brain stem is the Reticular Activation System. The total function of this part is to filter out what is not essential to us so that it does not come into our conscious awareness. I often explain this like when one decides they want to buy a new car. You “opened” your mind to what was available and begin to see models and colors you had not noticed before. Suddenly see that there are many cars on the road like this and with this color. This was not important to you before, and the Reticular Activation System filtered out the zillion bits of information flooding in and only let pass what you had wired it to focus on.
The brain and mind work together. You might ask which one is in charge, and this is important. The MIND is in charge of the entire body, including the brain. Who is in charge of the mind? YOU ARE!
This fact is confirmed in neuroscience and gives us the key to make changes in our brains. We CAN develop the best version of ourselves.
Why would an excecutive want to change their mind?
When they find out that they are limiting their opportunities.
When they find that they can accelerate their career and responsibilities.
When they become aware that they can develop a better version of themselves
When they want to be sharper and have less stress.
Until recently, new ways of developing a leader’s presence and being more successful were only being shared with Fortune 500 companies. Our work and offers now make this available to every leader passionate about making a difference and impacting their world.
The NeuroChange Method that we are certified to share has been developed from the latest discoveries in neuroscience from around the world. The science of the brain and mind allow us to guide executives to new ways of thinking and moving with impact in their world.
Our offer takes executives with finding their FLOW of success, and tweaking that can be done to beliefs, mindsets, emotional intelligence and the subconscious are proving very successful.
The question often arises “Can one really change?” The only criteria is that the leader be passionate about wanting to become the best version of themselves and belief that they are capable of more and want to find out what this is. It takes time, dedication and the right guidance but it is certainly true.
It has made a huge difference in my personal and professional life and we have guided CEOs and executives to produce this in their own lives.
