Topic: How we learn: The brain, and Christian influence
Much of leadership revolves around our ability to share information and experiences with others. Is there a connection between what researchers are discovering about the brain and how leaders prepare and deliver information? Pastors and Christian leaders are called to preach, speak, and model effective communication skills. Yet, do most leaders and teachers know how amazingly beautiful and complex the brain truly is? Are there brain-facts that, when applied in leadership roles, might make more of an impact to those we shepherd?
By highlighting cutting-edge research on the brain and learning, David Towne has spoken and taught numerous workshops for leaders who desire to speak and deliver messages even more effectively.
Come and enjoy lunch, fellowship, and a closer look into God’s most complex organ in the body and how it can transform your influence as a leader.
