#Renaissance Boston #Waterfront #Hotel

Bindu Dadlani @bindudadlani, Founding Fellow IOC at McLean Hospital, #Harvard Medical School affiliate and Bindu Power Coaching @bindupowercoach participates in the 8th #Annual Coaching in Leadership and Healthcare Conference offered by the Institute of Coaching, McLean Hospital, and #Harvard Medical School.

 

It was an energizing and groundbreaking event featuring #keynotes by #world-renowned coaching leaders. Tracks in Leadership, Health and Well-Being, Coaching, #Positive #Psychology, #Behavioral Psychology, Neuroscience, Advanced Practice, Learning, Inspiration and #Networking gave me a new perspective on how to apply and practice advanced coaching skills in leadership to enhance outcomes. “Harvard is home to the largest and most distinguished neuroscience enterprise in the world. The #Future of Brain Science is Here, revealing the mysteries of the human brain”.

 

“In organizational leadership, executive coaches play a #critical role in developing #high-performing leaders who lead in a #VUCA world (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous). In the healthcare #industry, the treatment of lifestyle-related chronic diseases consumes 70% of healthcare costs, a growing #human and #economic crisis. Motivating and coaching #patients to develop and sustain health-giving behaviors is a pressing application of #science-based coaching competencies. Coaches serve well over a $2.0 billion dollar #market annually. The keynotes and breakouts speak to recent developments in leadership coaching as well as the emerging coaching opportunities that can address the healthcare crisis of lifestyle-related chronic diseases”. All inspired deepest parts of my #soul providing me with unique #insights. 5 made an still more profound #impact on my brain:

 

  1. Amy Cuddy@amyjccuddy. Social psychologist and professor at Harvard Business School. Her keynote presentation, #Presence: Bringing Your #Boldest Self to Your Biggest #Challenges, reminded me of what I applied almost instinctively when learning yoga during college years. Through her presentation we learned “How our own body language affects how we feel about ourselves and behave towards others. Her research focuses on how adopting #powerful #postures (imagine Wonder Woman) changes people’s #feelings, #behaviors, and #hormone levels, even impacting how well – or poorly — people perform in #stressful situations like #job #interviews. Her #TED #Talk on this #topic is the second-most viewed of all time, at over 24 #million views”.

 

  1. Dr. Rudolph E. Tanzi, PhD, @RudyTanziis the Professor of Neurology at Harvard University, and Vice-Chair of Neurology and Director of the #Genetics and #Aging Research Unit at #Massachusetts #General #Hospital. For over 30 years I have firmly believed in the possibility of changing our destiny, life or gene through incremental changes in self-awareness. I kept working on this #belief changing my life first and than that of my clients, achieving #transformational #results #worldwide. His lecture, What Can Alzheimer’s Teach Coaches About the Mind, Brain, and Self,showed how the brain is capable of evolving and improving throughout lifetime with the possibility of achieving a #Super Brain. As he said often, “use your brain, don´t let your brain use you” – loved this one!

 

  1. Gretchen Rubin, @gretchenrubin. #Author of several #books, including the blockbuster New York Times bestsellers, The Happiness Projectand Happier at Home, and her forthcoming Better Than Before. Her lecture, Some Surprising Truths about Habits, focused on understanding ourselves and how we need the #habits that will help us #succeed. It reinforced my life-long practice of doing it until it felt second nature.

 

  1. Michael W. Yeh, MD, FACS. Directs the UCLA #Endocrine #Surgical Unit. After pursuing his studies at #Stanford #University and Harvard Medical School, he trained in general surgery at UC San Francisco.  His presentation, Surgical Leadership Beyond the Operating Room, centered in merging #action and #awareness while achieving #flow collectively as key to both successful and unsuccessful applications of a surgical leadership #model within the larger context of health #care organizations.

 

  1. David B. Peterson, PhD, Director of #Executive #Coaching and #Leadership at #Google. His session, Coaching #Leaders in Turbulent #Times: Dealing with #Complexity, #Chaos and Constant #Change, explored “new research, theory and innovative ways that coaches can be more effective in helping leaders who are facing complex, unpredictable, and ever-changing business environments”. #Tweeted 1) #Do something that you have never done before 2) the best #investment is #building the #capability within your #organization.

 

  1. David Whyte, Poet & Associate Fellow, Said Business School, University of #Oxford, took me on a deep #journey to myself connecting with the #poet that I was at age 14. #Life at the Frontier: Leadership through #Courageous #Conversation, was a “compelling blend of poetry, humor and insight, exploring the concept of conversational leadership and the courageous conversations necessary to create a more #imaginative sense of what it means to occupy a leadership #role…”

 

  1. Alvaro Pascual-Leone, MD, PhD, is #Professor of #Neurology and an Associate Dean for #Clinical and Translational #Research at #Harvard #Medical #School. His track: Promoting #Brain #Health: Characterizing and #Guiding the Changing #Brain Across the Lifespan, showedhow new insights and developments in #neuroscience suggests interventions to maintain #cognitive function across the #lifespan minimizing the risk of neurodegenerative #disorders and #dementia.

 

Throughout, I was able to hear #scientifically what I have been #studying and #experiencing live in #India, #Japan, #Singapur, #Hong Kong and other #eastern #countries for over 30 years. Through new kinds of brain fit #techniques, the #body can achieve #wellness and overall health.
