Leadership Keynote
Dr. Tali Sharot
Neuroscientist, Author and Human Behavior Expert;
Associate Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at University College London and Current Visiting Professor at MIT
Part of our daily job as humans is to affect others; we guide patients, advise clients, inform colleagues, impact change, and drive results. We do this because we each have unique experiences and knowledge that others may not. But how good are we at  this role? Turns out we systematically fall into suboptimal habits when trying to change others beliefs and behaviors. Many of these instincts—from insisting the other is wrong to exerting control—are ineffective, because they are incompatible with how the mind operates. Tali Sharot, a leading behavioral neuroscientist and author of an upcoming book on influence, explained how an attempt to change will be successful only if it is well-matched with the seven core elements that govern how we think. She showed how each of these factors can either hinder or help an attempt to influence others in positive ways.   Dr. Sharot is the author of The Optimism Bias: A Tour of the Irrationally Positive Brain, as well as the upcoming -The Influential Mind: What the Brain Reveals About Our Power to Change Others

Are you challenged by life’s setbacks? Then meet Bonnie St. John, whose enthusiasm and personal story will drive you to confront challenges head-on to live a more meaningful life. Her gripping story of how a five-year-old girl who found herself dealing with a ‘Pinocchio-style wooden leg’ somehow discovered an inner resilience fascinated the IDN Summit audience. This drive led her to become the first African-American ever to win medals in the Winter Olympics, a Magna Cum Laude graduate of Harvard and Rhodes Scholar, a bestselling author, Director of the White House National Economic Council and being honored at the White House by president George W. Bush.
