Want to feed your brain and your stomach? Join us for a dining experience like no other at one of our unique DIM SUM TALKS - where you can delve into a fascinating subject whilst sampling a selection of Ping Pongs finest dim sum.

What is an effective leadership? How could I bring the best in other people in my work and personal life? Are my actions and emotions affecting others? For a leader, is it best to focus on the results (dissonant leadership) or the relationship with team members (resonant leadership)? Brain scans of different leaders and their team members provide us with valuable insight into what leadership is the most effective and the ways to bring the best in other people at work and in life.

In this experience, neuroscience Gabija Toleikyte (PhD) will combine solid neuroscience findings in the area of leadership with practically relevant situations presented in an accessible and interactive manner. Attendees will have an opportunity to relate theory to their own situations via activities in pairs and individual tasks. At the end of the event, attendees will have a greater awareness of what happens in their own brains during their working day and straightforward brain activity based strategies on how to reduce stress, make better decisions and create the best environment for their team or people they encounter in their after work life.

In this talk neuroscientist Gabija Toleikyte (PhD) will cover:

  • Relationship-focused (resonant) and result-focused (dissonnat) leadership at work and in life.
  • What happens in the brain of a leader under resonant and dissonant styles of leadership?
  • What happens in the brains of other people when we are using resonant ordissonant styles of leadership?
  • How our actions and emotions affect other people?
  • Brain activity-based strategies to bring the best in others.
  • What happens in our brains during stress and how does it affects our leadership, performance, and decision-making?
  • Brain activity-based strategies to reduce stress.
