Gary and Maureen talk about the leadership “operating systems” we are working with based on our brain programming and our level of conscious awareness of this operating system. When we increase our awareness, we can reprogram this operating system to move beyond the survival and ego based system to a more deliberate, service based, long term success oriented system. In our current time with increasing complexity and challenge, we as leaders need to commit to updating this operating system to ensure future generations thrive. This is something that must be done by each leader – we can’t look to those in political roles or senior roles to take care of it – all of us have a responsibility. 1) Over 99% of our thinking and actions take place automatically – can you talk more about that? 2) Pain is weighted 3-5 x higher – how does that impact our lives? How does that impact us as leaders? 3) The way our brains are working is not okay (we need to upgrade our operating system) - how?
