A Lively Book Review

ODC President Tammy Dubin facilitated a discussion about the book The Winner's Brain by Jeff Brown and Mark Fenske.  The book breaks down our well known topic of Emotional Intelligence.  To Tammy, this is the first book that offers great information about the parts of the brain responsible for our specific behavior and research of what makes up a winner's brain.  It also offers a self-assessment and hands-on strategies to use in your coaching practice. Some are new strategies, some we know. However, it is broken down in a way that is easy to use with clients to apply Emotional Intelligence. 

Location: Panera Bread 
5090 Tiedemen Rd. 9:30-11:30am 

Following this book discussion, Tammy facilitated a speed-book-review session like the one done July, 2010.
