Sharlet M. Briggs
When I accepted a new position as Corporate Director for Health Information Management (HIM) for 21 hospitals, one of my main goals became leadership development for the HIM Directors. Initially I scheduled 3-day meetings twice a year, with one day earmarked for leadership development. I invited Dr. Taylor to speak at the first session. Previously, I had attended several of her brain seminars and found the information so helpful that I had arranged for my children, my brother and his wife, and my parents to attend as well.
After hearing Taylor\'s presentation, feedback from the Directors was so positive that we invited her to speak at each of the subsequent sessions. Topics included Meet Your Marvelous Brain, Gender Differences, The Power of Affirmation, Cellular Memory, The Brain and Laughter, Brain-Body Communication, Downshifting, and so on. The HIM Directors began to practically apply the information, even constructing work-teams so as to include representation from a variety of brain types and sensory preferences in order to achieve better outcomes. And they reported benefits in their personal as well as professional lives. It was a win-win!
