Event Speakers

Dr. Rebecca Heiss

Human behavior and evolutionary psychology expert

The biology of leadership and communication

The cultural and evolved differences between the male and female brain can have significant implications on leadership. In her presentation, Dr. Rebecca Heiss will identify how differently gendered brains approach risk, challenge, conflict and cooperation, to test leadership "best practices" for both sexes. Gain scientific techniques to maximize your ability to lead — regardless of gender — and the knowledge to recognize and neutralize implicit bias on a personal and organizational scale.
