D9: Leadership & Teamworking: the Impact of the Virtual World

Session speaker(s):
Dr Rebecca Baron

Session objectives:

  • An outline of the neurophysiology of communication, links with leadership and how we can apply that to real and virtual teams.
  • An understanding as to what makes us feel safe in a particular environment, and how we can use technology to support that as much as possible.
  • An update on key themes around resilience and leadership so we can jointly consider what can support us, our trainees and our workforce. 

Session summary:
This session will include an outline of the neurophysiology of communication, links with leadership and resilience and how we can apply that to real and virtual teams. There are a range of techniques that can be used to help, especially when you understand the neurophysiology of virtual communication.  In particular I want to share the work of Stephen Porges and his research on polyvagal theory.

This gives us an understanding as to what makes us feel safe in a particular environment, and how we can use the technology to support that as much as possible. I’ll also summarise Daniel Goleman’s work on leadership and focus.

The workshop will update on key themes around resilience and leadership so we can jointly consider what can support us, our trainees and our workforce.  

Session hosted by:

Session theme:
