If you are a team leader, there are two essential tools you use every single day: Your computer and your brain.

You have experts who help maintain, refurbish or replace your computer, but no one can replace your brain. And only YOU can maintain it! Do you know how?

When leaders struggle with brain fog, unreliable memory, mood swings, the mid-afternoon slump, overwhelm when faced with increased stress or added complexities, headaches, or joint pain, their performance suffers. It's like having a computer freeze in the middle of a 40 page report or a website that’s painfully slow to load.

The best leaders are sharp, emotionally intelligent, able to focus and make sound decisions under pressure, and are present and available for their teams. The best leaders are not robots, but humans who prioritize brain health so that they are able to do their best thinking at any given moment.

Imagine feeling at your best throughout the work day, able to concentrate, remain calm when stress levels are elevated. Imagine if you never needed to take a sick day again? Imagine if you never had to excuse yourself for having “bad memory” regardless of age?

Professional athletes have strategies for optimizing their physical performance. Their bodies are their biggest asset. Your biggest asset is your brain.

The best leaders know how to maintain and optimize their cognitive health. They have tools, knowledge and habits that ensure they are always at their best.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the types of nutrients that the brain needs for optimal performance at work, at play and for longevity
  • Establish healthy habits that help prevent cognitive decline at any age
  • Discover the link between stress and the brain’s energy requirements so that you can prevent burnout

A “no show/late cancellation” fee will be charged if cancellation is not provided to chaptercancellations@hrpa.ca at least 3 business days in advance.

Registrations will NOT be accepted at the door.
