Wayne Pearce, footy legend, motivational speaker and coach was speaking at an event Lyndon and I attended last night – and it was a delight to hear him speak. I’m always so happy to hear from professional sports people as they exemplify focus, commitment and countless other inspiring and admirable qualities.
He discussed the brains incredible plasticity and how we can rewire our brains – just one of my absolute favourite topics! He also inspired and challenged leaders and business owners to give people a sense of belonging and bring a sense of meaning to what they do, which is so important for everyone, regardless of their role.
Brings to mind what David Rock was teaching us at Results Coaching Systems Leadership Day a few months ago. The brain needs certainty, a sense of status, autonomy, relatedness and fairness in order to be in an optimal thinking space… just one of the fascintating things about the brain that we can take into account when coaching!
Wayne also kindly autographed a note to our son Ethan which totally made his day.
Thanks for coming to Dubbo Wayne!
