Building a Culture of Brain Health, Growth, and Effectiveness

Featured Guest: Dr. JJ Walcutt

The power of mind over body goes back at least 2,000 years with the Stoics — but what about the power of the brain over both mind and body?

To be competitive over the next decade, all organizations — non-profits, businesses, and especially the military — must not only help staff optimize their bodies for physical and mental health purposes; they also need to ensure that cognitive optimization is a major focus of staff development.  Despite our hubris, the human brain is not equipped to handle the deluge of data that is coming, much less the constant upskilling requirements that are emerging already. Dr. JJ Walcutt joins host Maureen Metcalf to discuss Accelerate, a program that helps organizations get on the right track toward building a culture of brain health, growth, and effectiveness.  The military is paying attention; should your organization, too?
