The Magellan Factor

What a 16th Century Explorer and 21st Century Neuroscience Can Teach Us

 about Focus, Intention and Practice Leadership

 

Presented by Brian DesRoches, MHA, MBA, MSC, Ph.D., LMFT

 

Ferdinand Magellan had a vision of circumnavigating the globe and then relishing in the fame and fortune his journey would bring.  He could have completed the voyage had he not been distracted by an emotional process that now bears his name.  Although his situation was unique, the emotional process inherent within The Magellan Factor is not.  We are all susceptible to its distracting, devitalizing and derailing influence of The Magellan Factor on our professional and personal lives. 

However, its influence can be significantly reduced and managed by applying skills based in 21st century neuroscience:

  1. the mind-brain process you can use to bring calm and clarity to yourself in midst of confusing, frustrating and anxious interactions
  2. 5 specific criteria for creating vitalizing and positive outcomes
  3. 3 action steps for redirecting your focus when you become entangled and derailed by The Magellan Factor.

This presentation will help you manage the emotional process that derailed Magellan and direct your focus on the outcomes that inspire and motivate you both personally and professionally.
