HCMx Radio 47: An Interview with Bonnie St. John on Micro-resilience – Retrain Your Brain

Host: 雷切尔·库克, COO, 布兰登·霍尔集团

Guest: Bonnie St. John, Paralympic Ski Medalist, Rhodes Scholar, former White House Official, Corporate Leadership Expert, and Best-Selling Author

We had the honor of having Bonnie St. John as our keynote speaker earlier this year at Brandon Hall Group’s HCM Excellence Conference 2016. Bonnie captivated our attendees and inspired everyone so much, that we are delighted that she will rejoin us Jan. 25 在 HCM卓越会议 2017, held at the PGA National Resort and Spa, Palm Beach Gardens Florida.

Bonnie has risen to the highest standards of achievement in a variety of endeavors throughout her life. Despite having her right leg amputated at age five, she became the first African-American to win Olympic or Paralympic medals in ski racing, taking home silver and two bronze medals in downhill events at the 1984 残奥会. Bonnie continued to focus on her academics, graduated from 哈佛大学, 和 Oxford. Later, she was appointed Director for Human Capital Policy on the White House National Economic Council, and became a successful author, 扬声器, and consultant.

In this HCMx episode, Bonnie talks about her personal and professional journey, a new book that will be released soon called, Micro-Resilience: Minor Shifts for Major Boosts in Focus, Drive, and Energy, which she co-authored with Allen Haines, and the sessions that she will lead at our conference.

I’m thrilled to kick-off the first day of our conference (一月. 25) with an intimate interview with Bonnie and her daughter, Darcy Deane, as we dive into some of the interesting conversations they had captured from incredible women leaders from around the world. Bonnie co-authored the bestseller, How Great Women Lead, with her then-teenage daughter, Darcy, 在 2012. Together they traveled around the world on an extraordinary mother-daughter journey into the lives, and life lessons, of fascinating women leaders including Hillary Clinton, Condoleezza Rice, President of Liberia Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, fashion designers, CEOs, women rights activists, 和更.

Following the session on How Great Women Lead, Bonnie will deliver an exciting interactive workshop, Micro-Resilience: Illuminating Insights into High-Performance Leadership and Engagement, where she will introduce the framework based on extensive research in the fields of neuroscience, psychology, and physiology. Attendees will leave the workshop with powerful new tools to conquer key stressors that impede their ability to lead and perform at a high level. The workshop will:

  • Explain why Micro-Resilience leads to high performance in ways that other techniques cannot.
  • Teach the five frameworks of Micro-Resilience: Refocus your brain; reset your primitive alarms; reframe your attitude; refresh your body; renew your spirit.
  • Help set priorities and actionable commitments to integrate micro-resilience into your professional and personal life.

I invite you to listen to our two-part series with Bonnie St. John. The first episode focuses on the Micro-Resilience workshop. You can download the podcast anytime at the HCMx电台网站. Then check back Dec. 7 to access Part 2 — a sneak preview of interesting takes-aways that Bonnie will cover during HCM卓越会议 2017 on How Great Women Lead.
