The Power of the Downstate

Date – February 16, 2023

Time – 11:30 am – 12:30 pm central time

Speaker – Sara Mednick


If you’re like most people, the relentless daily grind of go-go-go, do-do-do, can run down your energy and deplete your resources.
While most of us find our lives full of “Upstate” moments that rev up our stress engines, it doesn’t have to be this way.
In the webinar world-renowned sleep researcher Sara C. Mednick, PhD, will show us how we can access the most replenishing and repairing aspects of sleep through activities and moments that happen during our day by diving into our “Downstate.”
Dr. Mednick shows that bringing ourselves back to the Downstate is critical for our health, well-being, and cognitive longevity.
You will learn (Learning Objectives):
  • How our bodies and minds are guided by a natural Upstate/Downstate rhythm—and how our modern lifestyles disrupt these rhythms to our detriment.
  • How our vital organs and systems benefit from spending more time in the Downstate –  which decreases the risk for Alzheimer’s disease, chronic illness, and early death.
  • How we can activate the Downstate through rethinking how to breathe, eat, sleep and exercise.

Date – March 16, 2023

Time – 11:30 am – 12:30 pm central time

Speaker – Marlene Chism


Unresolved conflict is workplace kryptonite. Get ready to develop the mindset and skills to defuse disagreements, overcome division, and turn conflict into an opportunity for growth.

Unresolved workplace conflict wastes time, increases stress, and negatively affects business outcomes. But conflict isn’t the problem, mismanagement is.

We unintentionally mismanage conflict when they fall into patterns of what speaker Marlene Chism calls “The Three As:” aggression, avoidance, and appeasing.

“These coping mechanisms are ways human beings avoid the emotions that come with conflict, but in the end it’s all avoidance,” says Chism.

In this webinar you will learn how to fearlessly deal with conflict head-on by expanding your conflict capacity.

You will learn (Learning Objectives):

  • The three elements of conflict capacity: Inner Game, Outer Game, Culture.
  • Inner Game – How to build self-awareness, values, discernment, and emotional integrity.
  • Outer Game –  Skills, tools, and communication techniques.
  • Culture – The visible and invisible structures around you that can encourage or discourage conflict.

Speaker – David Lancefield


There are plenty of high-stakes moments in which people catch you off guard and make you feel defensive, whether by their choice of words or demeanor. 

You know that you should respond calmly and dispassionately. Expressing strong emotions rarely helps to address the challenge. It also leaves a bad impression.

You will learn (Learning Objectives): 

  • How to focus your mind after the initial shock.

  • How to close with confidence.
The Extended Mind - The Power of Thinking Outside the Brain

Date –  June 15, 2023

Time – 11:30 am – 12:30 pm central time

Speaker – Annie Murphy Paul


Use your head.

That’s what we tell ourselves when facing a tricky problem or a difficult project. But a growing body of research indicates that we’ve got it exactly backwards.

What we need to do, says acclaimed science writer Annie Murphy Paul, is think outside the brain.

A host of “extra-neural” resources—the feelings and movements of our bodies, the physical spaces in which we learn and work, and the minds of those around us— can help us focus more intently, comprehend more deeply, and create more imaginatively.

In this webinar we will explore the research behind this exciting new vision of human ability, exploring the findings of neuroscientists, cognitive scientists, psychologists, and examining the practices of educators, managers, and leaders who are already reaping the benefits of thinking outside the brain.

You will learn (Learning Objectives):

  • How to think outside the brain to solve problems.
  • How to think outside the brain to make discoveries.
  • How to think outside the brain to create new things.
